AeroPilates Elevated Stand for Medium Machines
Made my workout easier
I have a four cord model of the AeroPilates (bought it on a TSV as I recall). I wasn't sure if this stand would work with my machine. Recently I was watching a QVC presentation of the AeroPilates machine and it was stated clearly that this stand fits ALL AP machines sold through QVC. It arrived quickly, in good condition and went together easily (I put it together myself and I'm 67 years young). I noted the instructions said one end was narrower than the other and strictly followed the directions keeping that in mind. I am a happy person now that I don't have to struggle to get up and down from the floor. A great purchase and haven't regretted it for a minute!
WHAT A DIFFERENCE THIS MAKES!!!!
I can't believe the difference this item brings to my current 3 Cord machine!! First of all the product is made of a very solid steel and it took me all of 5 minutes to unpack and put together. Just a note to help: Study your instructions first. There is about a paragraph to read and make sure the wider leg set is positioned in the direction your feet are on your Pilates machine! The narrow piece with the white rubber tape is for the middle and the other narrow leg set is for the head position. It REALLY HELPS to have a second person to help lift the Pilates machine onto the frame!!!! Just extend it along side the stand (IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION) and One ... TWO ... THREE ... you are finished! I can't begin to share the difference this makes and allows me a lot more ease in getting up and down from the machine!!! This is FOR THE 3-CORD PILATES MACHINES ONLY!!!!! WORKS PERFECT!!!
This makes using my rebounder so much easier! Btw this stand is for the larger 5 cord machine
It's super easy to put together and easy to take apart if you need to store it or move. Worth every penny!
Doesn't fit the aero Pilates rebounder plus 4chord
Doesn't fit the aero Pilates rebounder plus 4chord machine so I am extremely annoyed to see QVC has not fixed this one their site. They clearly state this is the stand for it but it's not. Now I have to waste my time and ship it back!
Buyer beware: it doesn't fit!
I ordered my machine 17 January. I had read the reviewer who said the stand didn't fit her machine, so I deliberately ordered the 4 cord machine, thinking that was the problem. I was wrong. This stand is for an entirely different series than the inexpensive 4 cord or 5 cord machines sold on the air. I don't know why QVC is not making this clear on television or on the site.
I tried going directly to the manufacturer, who is out of stock on the smaller stands.
I am very sad that there are several exercises I will not be able to do because my machine is so low. I am trying to smile through my tears. DON"T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU.
The stand does not fit my machine
I recieved my 4 cord Pilates machine with rebounder, finding with my back problems a stand would make it much more pleasurable to use. Alas I called and ordered the stand to fit my machine...... only to find the stand does not fit my machine.
The stand was easy to put together, I was happy with the height... but alas it was too big for my machine.
Thinking I had goofed something up.. I called a friend who is an engineer come to "critique" my "building" effort. I was hoping he tell me I had made an error in putting it together and tweak it for me...Alas it was not my building skills that were the problem.
sturdy but not wide enough
I just received this in the mail. It is so sturdy and secure. It does slip together
pretty easy. I put it together without assistance and it feels so secure I felt I would be happy to get on this. HOWEVER, it does not fit my 3 cord machine. This is way too wide for my AeroPilates. I am so disappointed and frustrated. I will now have to take it apart and attempt to re pack it and send it back to QVC. I am grateful I can send it back. But this is going to be a big job getting it back in the mail. It is pretty heavy. Be careful what machine to have when you order this. I wish I had known the width of this before. Darn !!
AeroPilates Elevated Stand for Medium Machines
I ordered this elevated stand thinking that it would make it easier going into each exercise. I does help but I don't like the way the AeroPilates machine just sits on it. Would be better if it attached together somehow.
Love it but BEWARE
Got it . Love it. Height makes sooooo much difference in ease of getting on and off. Actually makes ALL the difference. Extremely easy to put together. However...... It is a bear to try and get the pilates machine on the stand and is almost impossible by yourself. Ingot so frustrated but was determined. Finally i had the machine on top of it then took the REAR stand OFF to be able to get the front posts in the holder of the FRONT stand.'then put the rear stand back on and finally got the posts in there. I was cussin and fussin and hot and very irritated by the time i got it done. If you have 2 people to lift and place it would be a piece of cake. That part was alot of work but worth it
What's the smell!
I finally decided to order this stand for my pilates machine due to a recent back injury I thought it was just what I needed... Frankly, I'm surprised that QVC would sell such a poor quality item. I read some of the review about the smell but wasn't prepared for the reality. I thought it was unusual for the product to be so heavily wrapped in plastic. Now I know why, it's the smell...which is so overwhelming. Something seriously went wrong in the manufacturing process. No amount of airing out or washing could take away the smell.
Do not waste your money or time on this item.. QVC you should be ashamed, please recall this iten and don't send it out the door.
This Stand Improves the AeroPilates Machine!
I didn't buy this when I bought my Pilates Machine. Now I wish I did. It has made it so much easier to exercise. If you buy a Pilates Machine, make sure you purchase a stand at the same time.
Good Stand, A Must Have!
Just received my medium stand today, finally! The first one I ordered never made it to my door. It got lost somewhere along the way so I had to order another and it only took a few days to arrive. It's a nice stand and is a must have in order to get more range of motion for the exercises. Most of all, it makes it so much easier to get on and off the machine instead of having to almost get on and off the floor without the stand. One of the pins won't fit. That's the reason for the four stars, but I think it will still be okay. All in all, I'm really happy I decided to get the stand and not wait. I just received my first Aeropilates machine about a week ago and love it!
