Total Gym Platinum Plus w/8 Attachments & 4 DVDs
Total Gym Platinum Plus w/8 Attachments and 4 DVD
QVC had the best package deal I could find on the internet including stores such as Walmart, Target, even Amazon could not beat this package. What sold me was the attachments that nobody else is offering. Most offer the dip bar which is good but QVC offers the crunch bars which are excellent! The crunch bars attachment sell anywhere from $55.00 to $99.00 alone. You will not beat QVC packaged price anywhere with the attachments and 4 DVDS. Total Gym arrived in good condition and every single item was very well packaged. Very impressed with the packaging! There is no way any item could be damaged unless it was hit by a forty foot truck! There are many less expensive fitness products sold but many are one trick ponies as they only target certain areas and are more than half the price of a Total Gym. The Total Gym does it all, and does it well. Take advantage of this great QVC offer while it is still on sale. And who else offers 5 easy payments? You will not be sorry you made this purchase.
Great for all fitness levels
Let me first say that I have a lifelong history of having gym memberships I don't use and equipment that has stood dusty after a week of use.
This has been the single best purchase I ever made for my family. My husband, my son, and me have used this since it was out of the box. It comes about 98% assembled. The only thing I had to assemble was some of the attachments. Not sure why so many reviews complain about the assembly. I had a harder time pulling the box in from the front door to my basement where I have my total gym set up.
The DVD's included are for three different fitness levels, AND within the beginner program, you can modify many of the exercises as well. The biggest difference between this QVC version and direct thru Total Gym is the price and probably the construction of the unit. That is not to say this one is poorly constructed, in fact it is really good. I am not a small girl, and it is comfortable and well-suited for all sizes. I was elated to be able to try this at the QVC price and still get a decently constructed unit. If I want to spend $2k on the upgraded version direct from Total Gym, I can do that someday.
Bottom line, this machine is FUN! I have not gotten bored, and that is an absolute first for me. I am seeing results, and I look forward to my workout each day. This was money well spent for my health!
Should be called Total Strength
I am over the moon This Total Gym is the best, It will take some time for me to do the full Video , but I do i little in the morning afternoon and it is fun.
The Gift is i can feel the strength and energy ! Now you cant beat that!I love my Total Gym and I am proud to have this Machine Thank you QVC for my Total Gym and Rick was right it is something that can change your life! This was gifted to me and what a gift this is I am so blessed !
For those who have never exercised.....maybe?
Ok kiddos, time for a very honest, and real review. This Machine is completely unnecessary for your workout routine. There is absolutely nothing you can do on the total gym, that you cant do on a yoga mat with your own body! Seriously folks, most of you will have this in your yard sale in two years, and you know it. The nutrition guide has out dated information, and in the start up guide they recommend certain exersises only for men? They weren't that difficult....Truly, you can get a better workout learning to use your own body as your fitness tool. Last but not least, the total gym is large, so you better have a basement. It is not as easy to fold and store ad they show on the infomercial.
Love, it helping with my arthritis
I fell about 5 years ago, hurt my left knee and now have arthritis in both knees (mostly my left) and at times could hardly walk because of the pain, even with a cane. My boyfriend bought me the TOTAL GYM as an early Birthday gift. For, I would tell him how . I used the Commercial TOTAL GYM in rehab and loved it. Ever since then I have been wanting one. Every time I could afford one, something would come up and I would need the money for something else. So, as a nice surprise my boyfriend bought me one for my birthday since QVC was offering a good price for it.. I have had it for a little over a week now, using it everyday 2 times a day (because I love doing the exercises) . I will do some exercises in the morning and some in the evening, both times doing the leg press. Now, being that I don't have the mobility yet to get off of it, I do use a walker sometimes to help me get up and off of it. Some of that problem maybe because I weigh almost 230 pounds. Anyway, I have noticed that I am walking with less pain, I don't need to use the walker as much for support and don't have to use my cane as much either. Working out on this machine is so much fun, and your muscles don't hurt afterwards either (even though you can feel, the exertion on them. . I can already see and feel a difference in by body in just a little over a week, that I have been using it..
Now, I must warn you, being that it is a good piece of gym equipment it is heavy (30 to 40+ pounds depending on model) , even though it does fold up nicely to about 3 or 4 feet tall if needed, has wheels, it sometimes, isn't the easiest to put away. So, if you have the room leave it up for I think (if you are like me) you will use it more often if left up.. It also is about 7 1/2 feet long. Therefore it does take up quite a bit of space, so don't think this has a small foot print for it doesn't., even though it does have a width of about 1 foot 7 inches. So, the width isn't much. Thank goodness,, I have room in my bedroom for it. In spite of that, I would highly recommend this machine even if you have mobility problems such as arthritis like me, it can still help. You just need to work on getting up or down from the machine like I did. Outside of that, I think you will LOVE IT, just like I do.
Don't Waste Your $$
This product is not assembled when it arrives. It took my husband around 30 minutes to get it all together. It is VERY heavy & bulky. My husband has to close & fold it away for me. I'm 26 years old & not feeble. It's too hard to maneuver & takes up A LOT of space. It's quite annoying because on TV they preach how easy it is to maneuver & put away. I would LOVE to send back but it's too much of a hassle to box up & send back. Save your $$ & buy another piece of equipment. I'm going for a treadmill.
Best Exercise Equipment Ever Bought
This is the best piece of exercise equipment I've ever bought and I have a lot of equipment. It was fully assembled, all I had to assemble was the ab crunch accessory. Love this Total Gym and can't beat the price.
I am not someone who loves the drudgery of exercise. It has to be fun with enough variety to keep it interesting. This is my second Total Gym, my first one was many years ago. I love this product! It keeps me motivated and excited to get on and get going. The endless choice of exercises benefit every area of your body keeping you toned and healthy. I think that many people do not realize that exercise does not have to be back breaking. This keeps me flexible and energized. I have an ankle injury right now and I can still keep my upper body condition through my recovery. I just complete the exercises where my foot can ride on the board comfortably. It will be a great asset when it comes time to strengthen the ankle. I love the fact that you can do Pilate exercises.
The Total Gym is sturdy and a quality product.
A great buy!!!
Before receiving my new equipment, I decided to review the opinions of those who purchase this equipment and just to get a little more insight; well I have to admit I was a little startled by the mix reviews but that didn't change my excitement. The oblong box came, the assembly was easy (anyone can do this) and I am well on my way to loosing those unwanted pounds!
Great investment In Yourself!
I have been interested in Total Gym for many years...just afraid of the investment. After seeing this great value on QVC, I decided to try. I live in a small apartment and since I got my Total Gym, I have donated all other exercise equipment ...this is all I need!
It is heavier than I expected and does not fit under my bed but, that does not take away from what an amazing, all encompassing piece of exercise equipment this is!
It does come fully assembled!..there is only one accessory that requires assembly. I have a great suggestion for those who find it hard to move. I use EZ Moves Furniture sliders which help me easily slide it ( on carpet ) up and out of the way. I am a 57 yr old female with neck & knee issues. This allows me to exercise without too much stress and impact on joints. I would highly recommend!
Thank you QVC for making this affordable!
I love my total gym it was so easy to get started. When it came I took it out of the box and got started that day the DVDs give you different exercises to do so you don't get bored I've had my total gym for a little over a week now and I have done it every day for 30 min and having fun with it.
This is by no means fully assembled, granted I have trouble turning on my computer but there are parts and boxes of parts that need to be put together. Truly indicating this is fully assembled is not a truth in advertising. Maybe the average person would have no problem but I was not pleased trying to put this together. Almost wanted to just return, maybe I am just lazy. But the point is the fully assembled statement both in advertisement and box were very misleading.
