Rated 2 out of 5 by Sripper Works ok till breaks
Had for several months and was working fine until the band tore and broke. Too bad company doesn't provide for replacement. Really should. ps, I'm only a115lbs woman so it's not like it was overused. DoesQVC or anyone else know where a band can be purchased??
Rated 2 out of 5 by dinosammy Good for Sitting Exercises
This is great for the sitting moves....But the constant bending over trying to get my feet in the loops was not good for the back....Feet will not stay in loops for some exercises like the side kicks, etc....The bands fall out of the holes.....They need a different way to secure the bands in the slots.....
I'll just use it without the feet loops and just stand or sit on it
The Dvd that does not feature Marie is grainy and low quality, can't stand to use it
Somewhere overseas they have something similar called the Gym Stick, or Fitness stick looks better made than this one......The bands roll roll up on the stick for more resistant like this one does...
Rated 5 out of 5 by 310mami Quick little workout
I really like this body gym. I've been working out for 25 years due to my career, and to be healthy. I've belonged to gyms. I also have a gym in my garage and I luv to run outdoors. So I know a little about fitness.
I take this over to my daughter's house and while I'm watching the love of my life, my grandson...I get a quick arm workout in. I count out loud while my almost 2 yo grandson watches me and imitates me and hangs on to the bar. Then he takes it apart and sweeps the floor with the bar...we both get a quick workout. LOL
Oh PS at my age 55, I use this body gym to stretch out too. My grandson sits on my legs to help me. Never too young to get someone into fitness, is my motto.

I think this is a great purchase....it has tightened me up and not so hard on my bad arm and if anything it is strengthing my arm....Thank you....I recommend it!!! I know that if people need sum type of therapy they use elastic bands...I would like to see QVC offer replacement rubber for it.....
Rated 3 out of 5 by ClareVA It actually works!!
This little gadget will actually give you a nice workout! The proprietary protections, though, seem over the top. The website does not have a workout so unless you are traveling with a DVD player, you don't have a lot of options other than the picture of Marie demonstrating the exercises. Searching YouTube, the modern solution for this type of scenario, I could find only two videos and one was Marie saying how great the product is before taking a hike with a friend. Consider your modern customers and post something to help with a quick 20 minute Pilates-style workout. If you use it, the Bodygym works despite this inconvenience.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Texasbusymom5 The BodyGym ain't for sissys!
I recently purchased the BodyGym for myself (55 yrs old). I just completed my first workout and I feel tired and exhilarated at the same time. I cannot wait to workout again tomorrow. My muscles were a bit shaky afterwards but I'm sure they will get used to the routine, very soon! It was way harder than I had imagined; that it would be too simple of a workout. Wow-wee, was I wrong. It was a tough workout for my first time out. It was such a great workout that my husband asked me to get one for him as a birthday gift next week. Yes, my husband actually asked for one too! This is not a "sissy's" workout. You can make it more difficult or simple depending on your level of fitness. I cannot wait for my one year anniversary using the BodyGym because I'm gonna be a "HOT" 56 years old!. Thanks, Marie, QVC, and Body GYM developers for this amazing product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by selah body gym: more hype than results
I purchased this product a few months ago & have been diligent in using it 5 days a week. I followed Mindy for two weeks then Diana for two weeks & then to the individual exercises. I believe, based on Marie's testimony, and the fact that the majority of the exercises do take effort, I should have noticed changes in my body by now. Sadly & so disappointing there are no changes. Perhaps my expectations were set too high.
Rated 3 out of 5 by pickletini Needs an App or Video on Online
I really like the product, but on QVC Marie boasted so much about this is great for travel. I travel for a living and anyone who does travel the product only comes with a DVD, not sure if Marie realizes that majority of computers do not have DVD slots anymore and most people carry a tablet for ease. It would be nice if it had an app to download or a way to go to a site and download the videos to your iPad or tablet. And not to be picky but the second dvd with the 3 ladies is great actually, if I could get past the cramped, busy and depressing set. I am in my forties so I can not imagine how younger people feel. Needs to be more upbeat and happy.
