Total Gym Platinum Plus w/8 Attachments & 4 DVDs
Total Gym Platinum Plus w/8 attachments &4 DVDs
I have wanted a total gym forever and the opportunity came when I saw the show on QVC. I ordered it right away and am I glad I did. I have been using it now for about a week and I just love it. If you only want one piece of equipment to help you loose weight and tone your body then the total gym is the one. I highly recommend it. I also have a treadmill and I warm up on that for about 5 minutes then move to the total gym. I like it so much that I forget just how long I have worked out. Moving from one exercise to another is very easy. All the DVDs that come with it are great too. You won't be disappointed. Prior to the purchase I lost 50 pounds so the total gym is my helper to keep the weight off and keep my 65 year old body toned. I'm 5'2 and weight 123 and I'm in the best shape of my whole life. The total gym is a great addition to my workout routine. I LOVE IT!
I just received my TG..and it is somewhat hard to understand all these screws, nuts bolts...wish they would just draw simple pictures with close ups...but it is sitting here until tomorrow morning.. I will contact someone as to making sure I have it set up right...OTHERWISE..I am so happy to have received it ..been working out on a Power Gym similar but not the range of motion like Total Gym has...I am 64 and getting a sixpack soon enough....lol...Thank You QVC for making this affordable for us ...
I ordered last Friday, came today, wow that was fast. I can't believe the bad reviews. I took 70lb box into house myself, carried gym upstairs too. Took me 30 minutes to set it up. No broken rollers, everything was packaged neatly, the instructions were easy to follow I'm totally satisfied. Thank you QVC, I played around with it a bit, its sturdy, & I'm thankful you finally made the Total Gym affordable.
Replacement for a14 year old total gym
The kids will get the older total gym, still in great shape. This one is awesome. Takes up less room then the older one, also slides easier. This one has a lot more attachments and videos. The older one only came with one video. Looking forward to getting a lot more use with this one. Having had the total gym for 14 years would definitely recommend to anyone that needs exercise to try this out. So easy and you never have to leave home.
Not as expected
I have several issues with the machine. First it was demonstrated as being assembled. Just pull it out of the box and you are ready to go. This is not true. The attachments, screws, bolts, wrench, and foot pads will fill one corner of a room. There should also be a warning that the box is very heavy. If you live alone and have a few years on you, I am betting you won't be able to get this box into your home. The main unit alone is large, heavy and difficult to move. As a female over 60 it was a struggle. I am thinking that if I could move this tonnage I probably don't need the Total Gym. Unless you have a dedicated place you can leave the equipment set up with all the attachments, I don't think it will easily fold and store....just too heavy to maneuver
It's really fun to use!
I just purchased the Total Gym and am very excited to start a workout program that works for me and my schedule. I find the gym easy and fun to use. You are using your own weight as resistance. I am so excited about this product that my boss, his brother and a long time friend also just purchased the Total Gym.
Also a BIG Thank You to QVC for making this product affordable!
the very best!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have used the original total gym since it came out, the 1000. I finally decided to upgrade, after using the 1000 for more than 10 years, and almost every day. I love it! its effective, easy to change from exercise to exercise, and I have never felt or looked better, pretty good for 62 years young! I would strongly recommend to anyone who is serious about getting in shape, the total gym rocks!!!!!! and by the way, my total gym 1000 is still usable, that's a good machine!
Exercising on the Total Gym is fun!
I'm not athletic at all and I'm loving the workouts as they DON'T HURT. A few minutes even on level 1 and I'm beginning to sweat. Already feeling more energetic.
I've read comments about difficult set up. I found it to be easy enough that I did it myself :) Had I waited for my grown sons it would still be in the box.
Looking forward to getting trimmer and healthier with this.
Total Gym Platinum
I bought this for my Grandson for football so he could build up his muscle and strength, he loves it ND IS WORKING ON A "8 Pack" as he says. This is a good overall investment and I prefer this to a weight set for a teenage boy.
Verdit still out....but,
We received this item with two broken roller wheels. We hauled it up to the loft to open it, only to find out it was broken. These wheels aren't even on the exterior of the unit, so it's hard to imagine how this happens...but, I see other complaints. We did call up QVC immediately, & they're sending out another unit to arrive in about 10 days. That was the easy part, packaging it back up and hauling it back down stairs was a pain. We'll see what the next box holds, but right now, not too impressed. If the next one has a problem, it'll go back. QVC told me that we will not be charged for the shipping, so I'm not sure why others were charged for defective product shipping. You may wish to contact them, because QVC customer service is outstanding!
I'm in love
Great purchase. So much fun working out. So many different excercises you can do. Lots of attachments but once you get the hang of them it becomes easy as well as folding up the machine.
What a workout!
Great deal for a well-rounded home gym - I appreciate the variable levels of difficulty, range of DVDs and attachments. I set this up on a mat in my basement and plug the DVDs into a laptop nearby. (It is 8 feet long when setup and bulky enough that I don't want to fold it up and move it often, so I didn't want to keep it in the living room or a bedroom.) The hardest part for me was lifting the wide, 80-lb box from the porch into the house by myself, and then digging all of the separate parts out of the box - a LOT of packaging, but it protects the equipment. Once that was done, putting it together was a breeze. One of the wheel caps was broken, but QVC replaced it with two new ones within a week. The flip-chart is also difficult to read - small, grayscale print. Wish it were in color and laminated. Also, a note of caution for those with longer hair - even pulled up into a bun, strands of my hair catch in the pulley under the end of the board. (Ouch...) Overall, this is a terrific workout when I don't have time to stop at the fitness center after a LONG day at the office.
