I taught Pilates professionally for seven years. In that time, one of two studio quality versions of this sat perched in a corner of my studio. Comparatively, this isn't perfect, but it's very, very good.

What's fantastic about it:

1.) Real springs. It makes a difference. Springs require control and slower speed--you will get a better workout because you have to do the exercises with more effort to control springs than the comparative effort required by weights.

2.) It folds up!

This folds up into the space that a folding chair would take up; when Joseph Pilates invented the original Wunda Chair, he was trying to create a piece of Pilates equipment that would fit into a tiny New York apartment, or a corner of your average suburban living room; his solution was to create a box that could be used as a chair when its exercise-equipment-side was turned down towards the floor.

This is a better idea. Pilates would have loved it. Instead of a box, it's like a folding chair with no back and an attached platform on the floor. Someone should submit it for a design award. It folds up!

3.) This is a safer chair than some studio quality chairs. In fact, it's much more stable than the first Pilates chair I bought for my studio, which came from a manufacturer in California that I shall not name to avoid their annoying, rude, and distinctly non-refundable legal department.

4.) Mari Winsor DVD's designed specifically for this piece of equipment are included.

Loathe as I am to admit it, Mari Winsor is a genius.

I am most impressed with the pilates exercises. It's the first that I've been able to do that doesn't aggravate severe spinal and cervical injuries received in an auto accident. I have hope again to regain some physically fit condition without risking further damage to my injuries.
The chair itself is a great tool to use for these maneuvers although for the price, the quality of the chair leaves a bit to be desired. For several hundred dollars I do think they could use a better quality vinyl on the seat and foot piece. One of the brackets was bent when mine arrived and my husband bent it back into shape. One handle doesn't insert snuggly no matter which direction or side you insert it into. The toggle on the foot pedals leaves a bit to be desired. This is quality I would expect on a piece of equipment under $100, not for a few hundred dollars. This is a quality workout program and for $359.00 (nearing $400 with shipping), there should be better quality on the chair.

As a 74 yr old widow, with hip and knee problems, this machine has been the most comfortable to work on. It is helping to limber sore areas. With the anticipation it will relieve pain, I continue to use it, with ease. Thank you

I definitely took a moment to decide whether to give this item 4 or 5 stars. Here's the deal, the chair itself is great. If (and only IF) you order directly from the company, Guthy Renker or perhaps HSN, you can be sure that you are getting a really great quality pilates chair for much much less than it's worth. Comparatively, other pilates chairs with the same composition, design, and function will cost two, three or sometimes 4 times as much as this chair. Literally.

I find this chair to be sturdy and made of quality materials. It folds up fairly easily and does indeed fit under my bed. I love it. I just ordered the sculpting handles from HSN because I think they'll add to the workout and make the chair more versatile.

My recent order, direct from Guthy Renker, came in one box and it seems as though the company has taken note of customers having difficulty opening the machine because when I received mine, no springs were connected and nowhere did it say that I must read directions first. Although, I did and it was pretty simple.

The machine weighs almost 40 pounds, so if you think that it will be difficult for you to transport, keep that in mind. I personally have no problems with it at all.

Okay, now for the bad (or let's say mediocre.) The workout dvd's themselves are just okay. I actually like Mari's workout better because it engaged my core much more. Also, she explains a little more about which muscles you are attempting to isolate and that's sort of the whole point of pilates. If you are a beginner, do yourself a favor and take a few classes first OR do some basic pilates workouts from a different instructor. I highly recommend Rael Isacowitz who is a complete pilates bada$$.

I was very excited about this chair. I have been doing mat pilates for a few years and this looked like a fun way to try new moves. I am 5'6" 200lbs. I have strong abs but there were several moves that I could not do when I had to put my full body weight on the pedals. It seems that the springs aren't built to handle my weight and I have to sort of leap in the air when standing on them to get some lift. The seat pad and floor pad also seemed a little flimsy and susceptible to being dented or cracked. I imagine if you have a tiny Susan Lucci body or are about 140 lbs or less, this could be a great machine. The videos seemed to have fewer moves compared to what the infomercial demonstrated. I was pretty disappointed overall, but for a much smaller person, this could be fun.
