AeroPilates Reformer Plus 4 Cord Machine with Rebounder and 2 DVD's
Not perfect mechine
I owned the basic model and it wore out with constant use. So I thought that I would upgrade and buy the 4 cord model. I sent it back because I found some issues with this new model that I just didn't like. This model folds in half for easy storage. The problem is that when in use the platform rolls over the joint in the metal frame and makes a clunk, clunk, clunk sound and it is so irritating that I cant exercise. The next problem is that the DVD's are not a "follow along" program, they are a start and stop program. You have to constantly stop and start your workout DVD and its horrible!
These workout DVDs should be a "follow along" program.
not completely satisfied
this is a great machine but not satisfied how the company didn't have better videos to go with the machine or better wall poster. didn't like how the video and poster is mostly showing the old machine which I think may be better because the seat is wider, and the rebounder should be made in one piece like the old machine it was almost impossible to get the rebounder on
Awesome And Affordable
I received my reformer in a week. The reviews in set up scared me but it was surprisingly easy to set up.
The charts are easy to follow and the work outs as well. You may need to press pause occasionally to reposition yourself.
I have taken Pilates reformer classes before and they are expensive (up to $600 a month for private lessons). So at $429 and easy payments... Totally affordable. Pilates is by far the best workout I have ever done and Aero Pilates now allows me to do it at home. Aero Pilates feels just as good as the reformers in the studio. It is a total workout for arms, legs, cardio. If you are on the dense- get off and do it!
Glad I made this purchase
So happy with my purchase. Definitely happy I made this purchase. I will say that the only con I have is that I didn't purchase the stand and I should have because it's a little too low for me but other than that I love it!!!!!!!!!!!
I received my Reformer before we went on vacation. We just got back last night and I couldn't wait to get it together. It took me a while to get it assembled. I don't really get how to adjust the cables. The owner's manual doesn't really explain it. Does anyone know how to adjust the cables for the pulley system?
Not Worth The Money!
I watched several of the programs before I decided to order this. I am VERY disappointed in this item. It is extremely heavy, hard to move around, the exercise is good for you but after 2 months of regular use, not ONE INCH was lost or ONE POUND lost. . A lot of what I call "hoop-la" to sell this thing. The cost to return this to QVC was obscene so yes I still have it & yes I still use it to stretch. They should also let you know in the show that you really need the lift/rise to go with this as there are several exercises you cannot do without it. I am 5'9" and it's just a tad small for me.
Very disappointed in the machine & the price I paid. :(
This is just what I have been looking for!
To keep this simple....I have a week lower back due to heavy lifting at my job when I was younger....I walk carefully.....sit carefully...lift carefully, etc. I rely on my chiropractor to keep me going. I bought this machine not to loose weight or look younger, but to help me living my daily life easier and without so much pain....I took it out of the box and with a little help from my friend put it together and in one use with the wonderful dvd....I could do this with no pain and I can already feel a difference.....I am currently in a 36 visit program with my chiropractor.....I left there after visit 6.....came home only expecting to be able to do a few positions and I made it through the whole beginners workout and easily.....thank you qvc for bringing me this hope...I will update as I continue to use this miracle machine.
Great exercise machine!
This was my 2nd AeroPilates ordered from QVC . My 1st one is about 8 years old, a great piece of equipment that I used almost every day, very happy with it's performance but needed to upgrade.Love this new machine - it was shipped quickly, was easy to assembly, the new features are great and price was good. Thanks QVC for the easy pay! I am 70 years old and have exercised since my teen years - running, walking, going to the gym etc. However using the AreoPilates machine has given me the best and most consistent results of any form of exercise I have used. Thanks again QVC and AeroPilates.
What an upgrade!
I just received this purchase yesterday. I had it put together in under 30 minutes. The workout DVD looks very interesting.
I previously purchased a Pilates JP...many years ago. It has served me very well as I'm sure this one will also.
Staying trim and fit has always been my goal and Pilates is my go to for great health and fitness!
Love this machine!
I have had my Pilates machine for three months now, and totally love it. I practiced yoga for many years and have lots of injuries from overstretched ligaments in particular my SI and shoulder joints. I can honestly say that this is the first form of exercise I have been able to do without feeling lots of pain after working out. It is a challenging workout, but in a gentle way. The machine is very kind to your body and now that I'm approaching 50 that is very important to me because I do not bounce back from injuries as quickly as I did when I was younger. It keeps your shoulder girdle and pelvis in alignment, so you are able to really focus on strengthening and stretching your muscles in a very effective way. Even after I do some other form of exercise whether it's hiking or bike riding, I jump on my AeroPilates machine to put everything back in alignment and stretch my muscles so I don't feel sore. The rebounder is a very challenging cardio workout. After 30 minutes of jumping, I am really sweating and feeling like I had a great cardio workout!.
I have recommended this machine to many of my friends and family members because I truly feel that passionate about it, and would highly recommend it to all the QVC customers who are undecided. The only con I can think of is the size of the machine. It is very long so you do need some extra space to set it up. I leave mine set up all the time because I do use it daily and look forward to my morning routine on the AeroPilates machine. Trust me, you will love it too!!
In the end I am pleased with this item HOWEVER, be aware that the thing is really heavy, over 70 lbs. Being a woman over 50 living alone, iI nearly gave myself a hernia getting this thing into the house and up the stairs. Getting it out of the box and putting it together alone was quite a struggle. Once I had it assembled I used it for approx 2 weeks before the cables started to fray, it still works but the cables are frayed underneath. I'm 5'6" and 145 lbs which is pretty average. I would think the machine could handle that weight without the cables fraying?
Anyway it does work and I use it everyday now but I wanted all you ladies to understand you better have someone available to help get it in the house and assembled.
This item did not move smoothly as I was attempting to exercise and got stuck several times. After only a few times of working out with it this machine came off it's tracks. I would not recommend this item as it was very expensive to send back to QVC.
