I bought mine online elsewhere for about 20% less including shipping, so do your homework before you buy. I’d spent about a month looking for the right product to help me lose fat, tone and strengthen and chose the Pilates Power Gym because it gives me everything I want and need for fat loss and muscle strengthening and toning.
As stated in other reviews, it’s ready to go when you slide it out of the box. It weighs about 70 pounds, but can easily be ‘dragged’ by its handle and stored against a small space on a wall or in a closet if your bed is too close to the ground. It’s strong, sturdy and works as advertised.
As for the height complaints, in reading the instructions and checking out the preparation video on one of the DVDs, it seems that The Gym should accomodate the tall people as well. Yes, the glideboard can be angled into two additional positions, but it also has a height adjustment knob that takes it further when it’s in the C position. For guys looking to work with maximum resistance, I think this should solve the height problem.
The included workouts are easy to follow along. I learned the basic pilates moves within three workouts and now alternate with some of the more advanced workouts. I’m definitely look forward to the fab results that will come. I’m happily sore every day since I bought it!
Love it and can’t recommend it enough!
