Rated 5 out of 5 by Allyva A Begnner Was Able to Do it!!!
I am very out of shape with no core muscle strength. I have to do everything on the easiest tension and it is hard but I can do some of each exercise. Not yet at the duration and length of the instructor but not so little that I am frustrated and discouraged. I have it in my bedroom and it is the teal blue color. So happy I got this. Yes was a bit heavy to get from the front desk of my condo to my unit and putting it together was not an activity I want to repeat but even with all that , I would buy it again and recommend it to anyone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RobRoy I love this chair.
I've had this chair for several weeks now. I wanted to use it a while before I reviewed it. I really love it. Love it so much I just sold my reformer. I personally feel I get a better workout with this chair. I have watched the presentations on this thing for years now and thought it looked too easy and would not really do anything. Boy, was I wrong. If you've never tried Pilates you have to understand it is an exercise program that you really have to concentrate on so it will take time to learn the technique. Give yourself time. The chair itself is very well made and well packaged. I've noticed other reviews that have complained about how long it takes to unwrap. Yes, it does take about 15 minutes or so to get it out of the wrapping. I personally have no problem with that because it didn't get damaged and scratched in shipping. If it had not been wrapped so well then there would have been complaints about it being damaged and scratched...can't please everyone. I think the DVDs are very well made and very good at explaining the exercises and technique. I hope they make more DVDs and possible the handles that used to come with this chair that can be attached to THIS chair not having to buy a whole other unit (hint, hint Life's A Beach). Don't be fooled by how easy they make this look on air. Also remember Pilates is a controlled movement exercises. Don't expect to jump on this chair and flop through the exercises. Watch the videos and listen to the directions and I think after a week of workouts you will start to make the connection between body and mind. After several weeks I'm just now feeling like my lower abs are engaging and I have worked out for 30+ years

I love this chair. Easy to use. Have arthritis in my hip and still easy to use. Love the way it tones my body.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Butchie Good Workout....
I actually hesitated on purchasing this chair, because I was afraid I wouldn't use it as recommended! I decided I needed to do something low impact, with a good cardio workout, so I ordered it and actually started the workout on Oct. 3rd, and I am also following the 10 day meal plan included. I am now 1 day into the second week, and I have lost 8 pounds! I keep weighing myself because I can't believe it. I'm only 20 pounds overweight, and I'm in my 60's, so to me, they results are hard to believe. The meal plan is doable, I'm not starving, and sticking to it pretty close. I hope my success continues and I can reach my goal, so I stay motivated.....BTW, getting the plastic off of the chair is a challenge, it's almost a workout in itself!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tcjm Great purchase
I have only been using this for a few days now, but I really enjoy the workout. As I have gotten older I needed something low impact and would not take up a lot of space. This is a great product and the workouts are awesome not only does it help with stretching and toning but it still gives you a cardio workout.

Day Two. Still unwrapping this unit. I have never in the history of buying exercise equipment broken into a bigger sweat unwrapping a product than actually using said item.
QVC. I respectively request a refund for the box of bandages, iodine, and Ear muffs to cover my youngsters ears.
This is just pathetic. I would like to return this unit......However, I fear I will expire before it is completely re-wrapped.

Heavier than they said on tv. Older folks will have a hard time picking it up. Hard to get plastic off. It is ok
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chia Very pleased !
The concept is based on the Pilates principle chair which is a great anti age tool. This chair provides core strength, and cardo. The size of the chair was my reason to purchase as I travel nine months out of the year. The chair fits in my large suit case it is going with me to the UK very soon. It is perfect for those of us living in small spaces, it allows me to work out several times a day. If you are new to Pilates work, be patient and follow the DVD training, as you will love the results. The chair is a great value compared to the cost of classes and you are in charge of your schedule of use.
