Kathi developed this workout to fit the needs of a young football player who had injured his shoulder and was told he would never play again. She needed a way to avoid putting any pressure on his shoulder while it healed and she used the High Chair for that purpose. This workout not only kept him strong, it allowed him to finish the season with his team. For those with healthy shoulders Kathi has included the High Chair arm work with her original inspiration. This is an incredible workout for toning the legs, fine tuning balance, opening the hips, getting ready to climb mountains, run from bears, or bounce quarters off of one’s bottom.

    Hi Kathy, thanks for the workout! I want to buy this electric/wunda chair combo but I am unsure if it is good as the wunda chair springs are different from the ones on the high chair. This combo would be useful for my little apartment. What would you recommend? Thank you!

    Loved it! And as someone who is rehabbing an ankle injury, this is exactly what I need to be doing (all the time). I’ve had the pleasure of working one on one with Chris, and I have to say, I enjoyed seeing that he didn’t think this was easy either. 🙂
