Innovative fitness chair combines low impact cycling with resistance training to provide a total body workout.

Cascade Health and Fitness, a dedicated team with more than 25 years of experience creating fitness products that are affordable and easy to use, today introduced the ChairMaster, an innovative fitness chair that combines low impact cycling with resistance training to provide a total body workout.

Suitable for all ages and fitness levels, the ChairMaster provides a "sit and get fit" approach to exercise that helps users increase strength and flexibility while improving cardiovascular conditioning and balance.

"Most of us, no matter what our age, spend the better part of our day sitting, which studies show can significantly impact our overall health," said John Post, president of Cascade Health and Fitness and former Stair-master executive.

"The ChairMaster helps solve that problem creating an opportunity for people to transform their daily sit time routine of watching television or checking email into fit time. The ChairMaster is an attractive chair that complements any living room while providing 50 exercises to choose from to increase aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility."

According to the Mayo Clinic, researchers have linked sitting for long periods of time with a number of health issues, including obesity and metabolic syndrome - a cluster of conditions that includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels.

Too much sitting also seems to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. Using the ChairMaster is one way to add movement and muscle activity into a daily routine to combat the negative impact of sedentary behavior.

In addition to home use, the ChairMaster is an ideal fitness solution for active aging communities and is less intimidating to use than treadmills, elliptical machines and other pieces of exercise equipment.

"Our residents' cycle to help with endurance and energy levels and use the resistance bands to increase their core strength," said Candace Peters, certified personal trainer at GenCare Lifestyle, a senior and assisted living facility located in the Seattle-area. "The ChairMaster helps our residents improve their quality of life from the comfort of a chair."
