Total Gym Gold Plus w/4 Attachments & 5 DVD's
Not worth it
I was so exited to try this . It was supposed to be already assembled.... Ha! I'm disabled and wanted it for strength training. I got a workout just trying to put the thing together. As far as it being easy to fold and store...well it's supposed to fold to fit in a 6-8 inch high space. Well my bed is on risers with a 10 inch tall space. The thing bearly fits. It's going back . Waste of time and money.
Wow!!!! I love this Total Gym!!!
Im a stay at home mom and chose this one because for one my mom has this one and I'm familiar with it and two - the price is great! It's perfect for toning up my arms, legs and stomach! It really works your muscles. I'm super happy about this purchase and would tell anyone looking for an easy and fun way to tone those muscles all over your body to GET THIS!!!!!

one more chance
just got the gym 48 hours ago, took me and my husband 3 hours to put together so had to wait til the next day to work out. within 10minutes on the lowest resistance I heard a clunk and a piece of the plastic cog from under the slider seat snapped in half and onto the floor so the seat sits ajar and slides off to the side. I have to dis assemble, try and rebox, and return. I will attempt it one more time.
putting together easy ...huh!!!
I have been wanting one of these forever. I am a pilates person...I have had a pilates reformer for years, but have always thought the Total Gym was a great addition to my workout. I ordered it the Total Gym Platinum when it was on tv this month with a flex pay. I just received it. So the baloney that it comes out of the box ready to go...REALLY? Not only was that not true, but the directions suck. Took me forever to figure it all out. Now, I can't figure out how to fold the vertical bar down to prepare to close down for storing. I do like the work out, but I couldn't figure out why the glideboard kept coming off the track. When I went to try and fold down I noticed one of the wheels has a piece broken off of it. So irritated. I have tried calling Total Gym and waited a half hour on hold and had to get off phone...so haven't spoke to anyone yet. So irritated with this whole purchase.
Well Worth The Money!
The family loves this machine and it is used daily by all. The Total Gym is totally worth the money! The one machine that has not become the coat rack. We love all the attachments for work out options.
Not as advertised.
Not Fully Assembled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the workout but...
Ok you get a great workout im sold on that but folding it up to put it away and bringing it back out is very awkward taking out the pins to change out equipment or just detach the handles is very extremely difficult...
Love it :)
I broke my arm in April of 2013 and am going to PT 2 times a week. I have not been able to lift weights yet, I am lacking range of motion and strength. I was getting frustrated because I am quickly getting out of shape not being able to exercise. I am able to work out with the total gym and it is helping my range of motion as well as my shoulder pain from over compensating and over use from my broken arm. I love the 6-8 min workouts, if I am running late in the morning I will do one, if I have more time I will do 2 or 3. Sometimes I do one in the morning and another 1 or 2 in the evening. I really enjoy it and am feeling firmer and stronger and gaining more range of motion in my arm and my shoulder is feeling soooooooo much better. I highly recommend it, it feels good to workout again, thanks to total gym. Easy to set up, easy to fold up, easy to store. A slight learning curve with attaching and detaching parts but I am getting quicker and more efficient. Product came faster than promised, I highly recommend the total gym.
Not happy purchase
This is the 2nd time I've ordered this, and I went in with a totally positive attitude. Unfortunately it is going back. It takes time and patience to take pins in and out. If you want a quick and easy way to exercise, this is not it! I'm sure you will get a good workout, but you probably need a lot of time to do the program.
Glad I did it!
I kept watching the commercials over and over again over the past years and never took the leap. I am so glad that I finally did!
The package is heavy for sure and UPS was kind enough to help me bring it in safely. Easy to assemble. It does take up a lot of space but it does fold down fairly quickly.
I am still on the beginner workout with Todd Durkin. He is a very inspiring trainer. I thought that at 255 and 5'5 I wouldn't be able to workout, but I have been able to consistently workout and feel better for 3 weeks now. I notice that I am able to do more longer now and it really is helping. I don't want to get on the scale quite yet, but I do see and feel that there is change and am very happy with my Total gym so far.
Also QVC made this so wonderful for my budget to do an easypay. You guys are the best!
Love My Total Gym
Wow! So easy to use and makes exercising fun. You are able to accomplish the workouts with getting discouraged. Great for beginners for sure.
