AeroPilates Elevated Stand for Medium Machines
Great product, but it SMELLS AWFUL!
I hate sounding like a whiner, but I think I need to express my huge letdown with this product.
I have no idea why this is so ridiculously STINKY!!! I have had this a week and my entire home smells like very strong cigarette smoke. Even my garage, where the packing cardboard is awaiting recycling, smells like an overflowing ashtray. We've left the door open, used a fan to try to circulate air on it for 3-4x/day for 20 minutes each time and sprayed Lysol and nothing, nothing will take the stench away.
My daughter has minor asthma issues and is very sensitive to cigarette smoke. This product is aggravating her allergies, which doesn't happen often. If you have serious smoke allergies, you might want to leave this product open and outside for at least a week. It's THAT bad!
Absolute Must Have
If you have the aero pilates machine, this accessory is an absolute must have! I could not have used the machine without it. It raises it up high enough for me to manage getting on and off with such ease!
I had my Aero Pilates 3 cord Machine for a year before I splurged on this. So glad I did, I wish I would have ordered it way back when I bought the machine! If your thinking about it, JUST DO IT! It makes all the difference in the world.
I didn't know about this stand when I first got my AeroPilates 3 corded machine and It was a little difficult to get up and down(I'm 62). This makes it so much easier!
Works for Me!
I hesitated purchasing this elevation stand because of the cost but recently decided to buy it and I am so glad I did! I only wish now that I bought it sooner! I've had my AeroPilates for a couple of years but found I was using it less and less because of my difficulty getting on and off the machine (I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists, arthritis in my knees, and my acid reflux would activate whenever I bent over), Well, this stand has made a huge difference and now I can get on and off the machine with ease!! It was simple to assemble and I even lifted up the AeroPilates machine by myself and placed it on the stand.
The stand makes a big difference and worth the price. Very sturdy and was super easy to assemble. The rubber feet had a strong rubber smell at first but less now. I used the tip from another reviewer and added movers underneath - now I can easily slide it out of the way!
I just received this stand. It took me all of two minutes to put this together. It took longer to take out of the box than it did to put it together. It has made an already enjoyable task even more so. It is true quality, sturdy and well made.
Makes a nice difference!
I love this! It's so much nicer to use the 3-cord machine with this stand. When first putting it together, I didn't realise that the slots were to put the bar tabs in (where the pull tabs go) and the legs kept falling off. After my brother looked at it (for a total of 2 seconds.) he showed me how it was supposed to fit together and it's perfect. Felt like a real genius! However, maybe someone else did this and it might help them by mentioning it. =) The stand is sturdy and makes an already fun workout better. Thanks QVC for bringing this product to us. I couldn't afford the more expensive machine with the included stand, and this makes working out a better experience at a price that is doable.
What a Difference!
I tried the pilates machine without the stand. Big mistake! Having arthritis, I had such a hard time getting on and off the floor. That made me not want to use the machine at all. Then I got the stand, and boy oh boy, it makes such a huge difference. I can easily get on and off the machine without stress on my knees. This stand is totally worth the money. Get it - you won't regret it.
It was extremly difficult using the Pilates Machine with out this I have only had this 2 days makes my workout a lot easier. I would suggest putting movers under it if you have it in a room with limited space. The machine can be moved with one hand.
Really makes a difference!
Wow! What a difference it makes when you elevate the Performer. I'm no longer sitting on the floor. It really makes the work-out so much more enjoyable and comfortable. It was very easy to assemble also!
. I never did like getting down on the floor & now I really enjoy using the machine, seems like it makes working out much easier.
