AeroPilates Reformer Plus 4 Cord Machine with Rebounder and 2 DVD's
Love it! (Great for anyone)
Fantastic piece of equipment. The lack of impact is amazing and has helped me to become flexible and now do some low impact exercises.
I have lost 29 lbs in a short period of time and feel great. I have done Pilates for many years but had to have total shoulder replacement surgery and quit smoking a month prior. Recovery from the shoulder surgery was pretty quick with an amazing surgeon and an exellent rehab specialist but the weight I gained after I quit smoking had caused some physical problems.
That is done! Tx to the AeroPilates Reformer Plus 4, etc, I really do love it.
Also extremely happy with QVC & the Company that makes the equipment for the rapid replacement of the mat that had a tear in it. I am impressed. thank you! ERA
I purchased this machine a few days after my husband had been diagnosed with Parkinson's. The show host said that her mother-in-law, who has Parkinson's, used the machine successfully. My husband did not like the machine, so I decided that I would use it rather than trying to disassemble it and ship it back. I have a Total Gym that I like very much even though it is an inexpensive model and pretty old. This reformer has very uncomfortable handholds, while the ones on the Total Gym are much more comfortable. Since this machine uses the handholds on many of the exercises you want them to be as comfortable as possible, but I find these so uncomfortable that I end up focusing on that and not my workout. Really bad design flaw!
Love the workout.....
...wish I bought the 5 cord machine though because I feel a bit cramped on this machine. Also, I'm new to using a Reformer so the DVDs move a little too fast for me as there is no time given to let you get in the proper position and learn the exercise. If I could easily exchange this for the 5 cord machine, I would. This is a sturdy machine and it was easy to assemble. Would get 5 stars from me if I had the larger platform. Thanks.
Love the machine
The machine is great and my husband said it was easy to put together! I just wish I had bought the stand at the same time. It does take a lot of room on the sides of the machine for widened exercises, but overall, it is a low impact, high result product. I am an outside runner and bought this for inclement weather and when my partner couldn't go. It has challenged me way more than I thought it would and still haven't progressed to two cords on every exercise yet. Feeling way more limber and my abs are getting tighter!
Love my AeroPilates
I recently began using this product...my first foray into Pilates...and I love it! It's totally changed the way I think and feel about exercise! I used to dread using my treadclimber because 1) it was tedious and 2) I really never saw results. Thankfully, it broke down and gave me an excuse to try something different. So glad I tuned in when AeroPilates was being sold. I always look forward to my morning sessions and feel great afterwards. And I'm seeing fast results and feeling great overall both mentally and physically. A great product! :)
Great buy and great workout
I am amazed at how wonderful this machine is. The quality is better than I expected. The platform and hand straps glide smoothly and quietly. The machine and platform were easy to assemble. I find the workout challenging but relaxing at the same time. I decided to purchase the stand and the red cords.
It gets me moving when I can't get out in the nasty weather for that it gets 3 stars. reasons for not getting 5; 1. the padding on the bed is non existent, i'm on it 5 min and the sacrum area at the base of my lower spine hurts and is quit sore even the next day when starting the daily routine, can't imagine someone twice my size using it in comfort. 2. for what you get it is over priced. I'm keeping it because it gets me moving and I don't wish to pay anymore shipping on it. In reading other reviews my package had no warnings about cancer nor does it smell bad, there is no oder.
Great machine, but....
At age 65 my exercise options have become more focused on strengthening than aerobic so this machine is exactly what the Dr ordered. It is easy to use. The video is invaluable although it moves along faster than I do so I have to pause the video otherwise I can not keep up (at least as a beginner).
The Aeropilates machine is extremely heavy and I could not bring it into the house and to my exercise room without assistance. There were missing bolts which took a week to arrive from the manufacturer but at least they are in Missouri even though the machine is made in China. It takes about 40 minutes to put together and I recommend the stand so you are not sitting on the floor as well as the mat. Overall I am happy and have finally found something that I can do that is progressive as well as low impact.
READ THE WARNING
Printed on the side of the boxes. WARNING This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Perhaps the reason for the horrible smell, I'm not sure. I didn't want to give this any stars but you have to give at least one to post.
I immediately returned this along with the accessories that also had the warning. There is something terribly wrong with a item that professes to make you healthier carrying this notice......
Very easy to put together and use. Newly purchased, so waiting a while to realize the results. Thanks
Best Exercise Equipment Ever!!
I have only used it almost 2weeks and after the first time using it I was so sore.lt was a good pain because I knew it was working and it is so much fun. It is definitely a keeper.
I Love It
We have had ours now for about 2 weeks. I am 50 yes old and a bit pudgy and have a hard time walking very far. I love this thing! It was easy to set up, easy to use, gets my heart pumping and was a great price. I understand the smell issue others were complaining about, but that went away after a few days. Not worth returning for the smell! This is a great machine that does EVERYTHING! Full body workout!
