AeroPilates Elevated Stand for Medium Machines
The stand does not fit my machine
I recieved my 4 cord Pilates machine with rebounder, finding with my back problems a stand would make it much more pleasurable to use. Alas I called and ordered the stand to fit my machine...... only to find the stand does not fit my machine.
The stand was easy to put together, I was happy with the height... but alas it was too big for my machine.
Thinking I had goofed something up.. I called a friend who is an engineer come to "critique" my "building" effort. I was hoping he tell me I had made an error in putting it together and tweak it for me...Alas it was not my building skills that were the problem.
sturdy but not wide enough
I just received this in the mail. It is so sturdy and secure. It does slip together
pretty easy. I put it together without assistance and it feels so secure I felt I would be happy to get on this. HOWEVER, it does not fit my 3 cord machine. This is way too wide for my AeroPilates. I am so disappointed and frustrated. I will now have to take it apart and attempt to re pack it and send it back to QVC. I am grateful I can send it back. But this is going to be a big job getting it back in the mail. It is pretty heavy. Be careful what machine to have when you order this. I wish I had known the width of this before. Darn !!
AeroPilates Elevated Stand for Medium Machines
I ordered this elevated stand thinking that it would make it easier going into each exercise. I does help but I don't like the way the AeroPilates machine just sits on it. Would be better if it attached together somehow.
Love it but BEWARE
Got it . Love it. Height makes sooooo much difference in ease of getting on and off. Actually makes ALL the difference. Extremely easy to put together. However...... It is a bear to try and get the pilates machine on the stand and is almost impossible by yourself. Ingot so frustrated but was determined. Finally i had the machine on top of it then took the REAR stand OFF to be able to get the front posts in the holder of the FRONT stand.'then put the rear stand back on and finally got the posts in there. I was cussin and fussin and hot and very irritated by the time i got it done. If you have 2 people to lift and place it would be a piece of cake. That part was alot of work but worth it
What's the smell!
I finally decided to order this stand for my pilates machine due to a recent back injury I thought it was just what I needed... Frankly, I'm surprised that QVC would sell such a poor quality item. I read some of the review about the smell but wasn't prepared for the reality. I thought it was unusual for the product to be so heavily wrapped in plastic. Now I know why, it's the smell...which is so overwhelming. Something seriously went wrong in the manufacturing process. No amount of airing out or washing could take away the smell.
Do not waste your money or time on this item.. QVC you should be ashamed, please recall this iten and don't send it out the door.
This Stand Improves the AeroPilates Machine!
I didn't buy this when I bought my Pilates Machine. Now I wish I did. It has made it so much easier to exercise. If you buy a Pilates Machine, make sure you purchase a stand at the same time.
Good Stand, A Must Have!
Just received my medium stand today, finally! The first one I ordered never made it to my door. It got lost somewhere along the way so I had to order another and it only took a few days to arrive. It's a nice stand and is a must have in order to get more range of motion for the exercises. Most of all, it makes it so much easier to get on and off the machine instead of having to almost get on and off the floor without the stand. One of the pins won't fit. That's the reason for the four stars, but I think it will still be okay. All in all, I'm really happy I decided to get the stand and not wait. I just received my first Aeropilates machine about a week ago and love it!
My pilates machine is several years old and I've gotten to the point where I can't get down on the floor and back up easily. I received the elevated stand within a week of ordering it, had it put together quickly and was able to get the pilates machine on it myself. One of the pins that holds it together was cracked so I called the Customer Service number in the directions and was helped without question. It's a good buy, works well, and makes the equipment usable again. I put furniture slides under the feet and can move it around when I want to.
How did I live without it!!!
This is the best investment if you love your Pilates equipment!!! Highly recommend!!! I love my PILATES MACHINE but raising it off the floor brings it to a whole new level LITERALLY!!! Piece of cake to put together.
Great product, but it SMELLS AWFUL!
I hate sounding like a whiner, but I think I need to express my huge letdown with this product.
I have no idea why this is so ridiculously STINKY!!! I have had this a week and my entire home smells like very strong cigarette smoke. Even my garage, where the packing cardboard is awaiting recycling, smells like an overflowing ashtray. We've left the door open, used a fan to try to circulate air on it for 3-4x/day for 20 minutes each time and sprayed Lysol and nothing, nothing will take the stench away.
My daughter has minor asthma issues and is very sensitive to cigarette smoke. This product is aggravating her allergies, which doesn't happen often. If you have serious smoke allergies, you might want to leave this product open and outside for at least a week. It's THAT bad!
Absolute Must Have
If you have the aero pilates machine, this accessory is an absolute must have! I could not have used the machine without it. It raises it up high enough for me to manage getting on and off with such ease!
I had my Aero Pilates 3 cord Machine for a year before I splurged on this. So glad I did, I wish I would have ordered it way back when I bought the machine! If your thinking about it, JUST DO IT! It makes all the difference in the world.
