Goldfish

There are now chi exercise machines to suit most people’s budget and with various types of design, functionality and build quality.

Since the original Chi Machine® was invented in 1990, other manufacturers have come up with alternatives. These can be categorized as follows:

  1. Cheaper versions of the original Chi Machine® with similar functionality but inferior build and/or engineering quality.
  2. More advanced versions with superior build, mechanics and/or functionality and/or added features.
  3. Chi exercise machines that also offer ancillary features that allow users to utilize the same device for other purposes.

Below is a chart showing a comparison of some of the most popular chi exercise machines available in Europe & North America. We have negotiated a special discount for our readers when buying any of the chi exercise machines available at www.chiexercisemachine.com.
