AeroPilates Reformer Plus 4 Cord Machine with Rebounder and 2 DVD's
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!
Great Equipment Purchase
This piece of equipment will not be gathering dust in the basement! I am a sixty year old with a pretty good workout history. Running has become tough on the joints so I purchased the reformer to get me through this harsh winter. My husband and I put this together quickly. I don't have much space so I need to fold it up each night and store it. That is also easy. The reformer is well built and actually fun to use. No joint pain here. The videos move right along and get you quickly into the swing of the movements. It also helps you to work out your entire body very efficiently. I will be enjoying the reformer for many years to come. Dollars well spent!
First of all, this product stinks to high heaven! Ugh!! You will need to air it out for weeks before you can not even start to get a whiff of that disgusting smell that comes with it-
Second, after spending alot of time putting it together, I see it is nothign more than stretch bands- you can buy those just about anywhere for under 50-- not sure what the big hype is about this machine- all it does is use those bands, which by the way, are not very stable when stretching out, --- not worth the money at all- unless you are so unfit, you can;t even bend over-
I have been looking at this reformer since the launch in January and decided to order it. I had back surgery one year ago and have been struggling to find what type of exercise I could do. My physical therapist said this would be great and my surgeon was very happy I purchased this! I was able to speak to Albany and Margeline live the day I purchased this and they were so encouraging and helpful!!
I was able to put it together on my own and have been working out for one month and love it!! I feel like I am alive again and not just watching everyone else exercise! I am looking forward to progressing with the more advanced dvd's as I strengthen. And I love the rebounder. besides the cardio aspect I can really feel it in my core just after ten minutes! Thank you so much for making this affordable as well as portable!!
I am 67 year old female and have an ugly track record of being an exercise dropout. Either through a fitness club or home equipment. I fought with myself in purchasing this. All I have done is buy equipment and to dust it, then finally, the garage sale. Part of the problem with some of the equipment I have had that I didn't like was I was always changing something.....either the seating/rods/etc. I wanted something to help with my CORE strength as I feel I am getting to look like a walking pin cushion. I want to feel better, stronger. I can't believe that I don't find excuses NOT to exercise. Maybe because I can lay down (smile).....HA! No matter the reason, I am so glad I tried this. After all these years of buying/selling, I found the right thing at 67 years old. Wouldn't ya know! I LOVE THIS MACHINE!
Great Workout Machine
This machine works!!! I have been doing yoga for years but wanted a cardio component in my workout, but with the same gentle approach that yoga has. This machine does that and more. After one workout my abs were singing! I have the good healthy sore that let's me know I've worked out, without pain. After just two weeks I decided to add the stand and the pull-up bar. I am looking forward to the increased range of exercises with those additions. If you are on the fence, take the plunge. For this price, and how you'll feel after, you won't regret it!!!
Love the machine but...
I love Pilates and I love this reformer but it was not as easily assembled as I was led to believe from the demonstration. It would be nice if the booket was more detailed or possibly had an assembly segment on the DVD's. The exercises are great and definitely make a difference in the way I feel and look.
A Good Investment
This is my second AeroPilates. I left the first behind when i moved to DC from San Diego 13 years ago and I am happy to have purchased another. I do observe that it is small, giving you less base to work with and no improvements to pulls or cushioning. The vendor has kept the cost point low for their profit but the price relects a higher quality product. my opinion is that the $108 platform and cushioning should have been included for the price. that said, the concept is still terrific. it is great for at home, convenient for use and the exercises can be paced at your own progress.
I have had the machine less than 30 days I use it 5-6 times a week for an hour to an hour and a half. Love it but the resistance cords are fraying already. I called QVC for help on replacing them, was given number to stamina and now I'm waiting to have someone to call me back.
Being a larger person, I was looking for a workout machine that I could use without being worried. When I got this home, I was surprised that I could use the machine with little difficulty. The machine does give you a workout, especially the rebounder! I love it, I been working out for a couple weeks and I can see a difference in my stomach and legs. When you are finished with your workout you can fill it, but keep going it will be worth it. My kids get on and workout too (even my 13 year old son)! Well worth the money.
This is an upgrade for me : )
My husband actually fought me for the old one in our divorce! This is the most relaxing, stress free exercising I have ever done!
As a disabled person with Multiple Sclerosis, going to the gym is out for me and the physical therapy although necessary has lessened over the years as I do so well when able to have a machine at home....This is a big treat for myself and thank you for the payment plan to make it affordable for those of us on a fixed income.
It has been a few years since having my own machine so having this price and the payment plan was an awesome find now that I was! ready to buy again!
I can't wait to have my poster and dvds knowing how much better I will feel again with not only the machine but the support that the instructor Marialyn sp? provides along the way! My home is being redecorated and I knew I wanted a place to exercise in the living area! and now I have both the area and the upgraded machine! I would highly recommend this to anyone with arthritis, bad knees, deg disk disease or MS-as I have all and am able to perform on this machine! I'M SO EXCITED NOW! BRING ON THE BETTER HEALTH IN THE PRIVACY OF MY HOME! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
As an MS'r, I prefer my machine to be on the floor. I had the stand as well but find my balance better when close to the ground. Feeling safer near to the floor helps me to work it harder!
I love it!
I just got it yesterday. The quality is great. Everything is smooth and easy to use. It really does feel good to use the machine and is honestly really fun! My husband does heavy weight lifting and he loves to use it for stretching and other smaller work outs. We are very happy with the purchase!
