I was watching this infomercial on TV about the chair gym and thought I’d do some research and write a review for all my readers. The Chair Gym is not an extreme transformation product; however, it will provide total body exercises that will strengthen, tone, and shape your muscles providing you with a lean, healthy body. Its portability allows you to implement a fitness plan anywhere.
You can work those tensed muscles while listening to the birds chirp outdoors or fit in an office chair workout in between meetings. Before I get further into the product, you can visit their site at https://www.chairgym.com/.
Does this convenient total body resistance chair have the capability of producing the results you want? It truly depends on your goals. If your goals are to completely transform your body in 60 days, then this is not the program for you. However, if your goals are to increase strength, flexibility, and overall health, then this chair workout could be for you.

The workout DVD contains approximately 50 exercises that are designed to work your entire body. Expect to work your biceps and tricep muscles, calves and thigh muscles, chest, abdominals, and more. It is unclear as to the specific exercises you will be performing; however, don’t expect to be sitting the entire time. The website indicates that you will be standing in some of the exercises using the chair for balancing.
You will definitely need some stamina to keep moving. You may think because you are sitting in a chair while performing some of the exercises that this is an easy workout. Think again! The adjustable resistance bands keep the workout challenging. There are three levels of resistance. The gray straps provide light resistance and the black straps provide medium resistance. A combination of the gray and black straps provides the most difficult level of resistance. The straps easily attach to the chair for safety.
Although it is possible to see quick results with the resistance chair, it is not an extremely intense workout that will provide amazing results in a matter of days. However, the three levels of resistance definitely provide a challenge.
The cost of the product does seem a little high at $149.85; however, shipping is free and it does come with a nutrition and fitness guide creating a complete fitness program. There is also a payment plan option that includes a 30-day trial. You will pay $14.95 for the trial and then three monthly payments of $49.95 beginning after the 30 day trial is up.
The exercises are simply effective. The continuous movements and resistance will produce results. An inexpensive alternative could be to use resistance bands with a chair you already have. However, safety may be an issue.
The bands will not be able to attach to your existing chair increasing your risk for falling. If you choose this route, you will need to ensure the chair has a low, padded back to allow for movement. Stability is important for safety, as well. Instead of putting your safety at risk, it may be beneficial to give the Chair Gym a trial run for 30 days.
