A previous poster mentioned the PBS TV show, Sit and Be Fit. I DVR a few shows and do one a day. In additon to chair exercises the instructor offers tips on avoiding some physical problems associated with aging. I didn't know we had to keep moving our tongue! Here's the like to their TV schedule, if it airs in your area.

Save your money, unless this motivates you to exercise. if something sounds to good to be true then it's not. Use a safe chair that is stable for your exercise. If you want to use a stability ball they make them with a handle in the middle to hold on to. Good luck!
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Thank you for your quick response.I guess I will have to wait for another sleepless night and hope to see it again. To the best of my recollection it looked like a standard folding chair with various attachments. Sorry I can't be more specific, I only saw it once. I do try to exercise, but it's difficult, especially at this time of year. My house has no sidewalk, I have a partially healed tib-patella break, have suffered numerous concussions throughout my life (something about somewhat reckless horseback riding!). I discovered last summer that I cannot even ride a bike any more. My active life is going downhill rapidly. I need all the help I can get. I thank you for your help. If I find out more about this mythical chair. I will let you know, Meanwhile, thank you for your help - Jmiini

Was there a name-brand on the chair? Doing a Google search for exercise chair brings back a very wide variety of results.
"You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call "failure" is not the falling down but the staying down." Mary Pickford
"No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch."
In sleepless night I caught part of a TV Ad. for an "exercise chair". It looked to me like a possible solution to some of my exercise woes. I am elderly, balance compromised, etc. I wonder if one or more of Spark peoples exercise gurus could test this product and let us know if it is worth anything. Thanx
