My order came today

Missing the gym, and when it does open, no water aerobics for a while. I'm going to enjoy this.

Not my picture.

What size is it, Glenda? Does it take up much space? Where were you able to fit it, please.

Here it is. Right in front of my computer chair. No putting together, just one big screw for tension.

Thanks for this info - I ordered one for myself, as it is too hot here now for me to ride my bike outdoors - plus it is too sunny. I can do water aerobics in the pool, but I tend to just float on my raft, which also has a drink holder. I should be using the pool noodle instead, but it is just so pleasant and relaxing to float in the pool with a drink. It is very de-stressing and similar to meditation. This mini cycle will be easier to use, and I won't have to put on a bathing suit.

Lars, I miss water aerobics. Been participating now for 20 years. Our Y is reopening, but only by reservations for swimming laps, no water aerobics :o(

Be very careful to use a non-slippery upright chair. These things were a fad several years ago, 10+, in this area several of my husband's water exercise buddies worked their tush's of the chairs onto the floor. No one was serious hurt but there were some bad bruises where people tried to catch themselves or the thing flipped back and hit their legs.

That's exactly what I've been wondering about. Glenda, do you find it necessary to sit at the edge of the chair?

I sit in my computer padded chair, so I find sitting on the edge works for me. I also sit back in the chair with arms on the arm rest.and watch tv. No sliding for me. Rug for flooring and it does not slide. I'd buy it again if needed.

I got mine cause I have no access to machines at Y due to to closure.

Found this and hadn't thought of using for arms as well:

set it on a table to work your upper body in a different and inspiring new way.

Pop on! The InStride POP Fitness Cycle from Stamina can be set up wherever you want it for an impactful workout anywhere, anytime. Use it with a chair to tone your calves, thighs, hamstrings, and glutes while increasing your heart rate and encouraging better circulation.

I've had one for a number of years now. I have wood floors and it tends to move on the floors. I back it up to the book cases and use it while watching T.V. But like everything else, when someone is coming I put it away and tend to forget about it.

I have carpet and it doesn't move. If I did have wooden floors maybe a large throw rug with rubber gripping on the bottom will prevent it from moving., Just a thought

I had this for awhile at work. You can use it sitting or standing on it. It was great. Then they finally fixed our phones so that I could forward the calls to my cell phone so I could walk outside, plus my boss was nagging me about the space this tiny thing took up. He is SUCH a nag. So I took it home and used it until I got a treadmill. I recommend this all the time.

amylou, that is a little more than what I want to pay for. I'm satisfied with the one I have. Thanks for sharing.
