I am looking to get contact information of and with sellers of the
products I need to purchase.  I want to be sure they have these
products this is the information i am looking for in my answer.  The
product is:
Product 1.  Genesis 1000 or Genesis gym.  Found in The Sharper Image
catalog May 1985 and The JC Penney Fall and Winter 1985 catalog p.845.
Genesis tones, firms, and builds muscles in your arms, shoulders,
back, abdomen, and legs trims inches off your waist, and conditions
your heart and lungs with an aerobic workout- all without bulky
weights. (One article stated anodized aluminum chassis) The secret of
this system is its two patented aluminum "arms", they are telescoping
and each comes with adjustable hydraulic resistance built in.  By
simply sliding and locking the arms into various positions, Genesis
transforms magically into a new work station in seconds.  The
hydraulic arms become oars for the rower, provide resistance for the
bench press and buttefly unit, and turn into ski poles for the first
cross country machine ever built into a gym.  Two attachments, a
leglift and Torso Trestle TM  (for stomach and back)  lock on
instantly, so you don't waste time assembling parts.  Genesis 1000 Gym
Product 2.  The TSX 1 On the Device it says The Sharper Image TSX 1  I
saw it in the SHarper IMage catalog March 1986 and April 1986 I was
continued on for a number of years THe inventor was Harold Zinkin he
was the inventor of the selectorized machines also known as universal
gyms. He was Mr. Calafornia and just recently died in 2004 at 82 y.o. 
The TSX 1 hooks up to any standard door by putting the standard door
bracket over any door.  It is easy to move from room to room.  As you
workout tough polymer bands provide muscle specific variable
resistance- geared to your body by an innovative system of
aircraft-quality cables.  By stepping away from the machine you
increase the resistance.  THe adjustment cable slides to any of the
four settings.  Attachments included; Hand grip to strengthen upper
torso, arms and abdominals.  Ankle strap helps tone legs, his, and
buttocks.  And an aerobic harness slips over shoulders for
conditioning squats.  Over 40 exercises provide a varied workout for
body builders, weight trainers, and those who want to gain strength
and muscular definition.  Acts as a rower allows people to mimic and
stengthen the actions required in the following sports:  tennis squash
and raquetball, golf, skiing.  2 models were available the Two-Power
for those under 140 lbs. and the Four Power for those who train
regularly or weigh over 140 lbs.  TSX 1 stands 75INCHES TALL and
measures 5inched across and 2 inches deep.  It was made in the USA
came fully assembled with a complete 30 page exercise guide.  2 other
versions were the life styler 1000TM was seen in sears wishbook 1981
and the Tunturi ultra shaper Registered trademark. I believe this
trademark may have been issued to Harold Zinkin I saw the Tunturi in
the JC Penney Christmas catalog 1987.  The preference is to find the
TSX 1.
The 3rd product is the Mini-Versal Registered Trademark total gym seen
in the spiegel fall and winter catalog 1986 It gives 101 exercises
