AeroPilates Elevated Stand for Medium Machines
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.
I didn't know about this stand when I first got my AeroPilates 3 corded machine and It was a little difficult to get up and down(I'm 62). This makes it so much easier!
Works for Me!
I hesitated purchasing this elevation stand because of the cost but recently decided to buy it and I am so glad I did! I only wish now that I bought it sooner! I've had my AeroPilates for a couple of years but found I was using it less and less because of my difficulty getting on and off the machine (I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists, arthritis in my knees, and my acid reflux would activate whenever I bent over), Well, this stand has made a huge difference and now I can get on and off the machine with ease!! It was simple to assemble and I even lifted up the AeroPilates machine by myself and placed it on the stand.
The stand makes a big difference and worth the price. Very sturdy and was super easy to assemble. The rubber feet had a strong rubber smell at first but less now. I used the tip from another reviewer and added movers underneath - now I can easily slide it out of the way!
I just received this stand. It took me all of two minutes to put this together. It took longer to take out of the box than it did to put it together. It has made an already enjoyable task even more so. It is true quality, sturdy and well made.
