I once saw an info commcerical on TV, with that TOTAL GYM. With Chuck Norris.
I have always wanted to get it but didnt have the money, now I do....and I just wanna know if anyone has it, and whether they like it. Any success stories with the TOTAL GYM and so on.
Please let me know!
Great beauty and virtue rarely dwell together.
Hi, my brother in law has the "Total Gym" we dont use it very often, but both him and I have just started using it lately. Theres a lot of different things you can do on it, and it comes with a leg pull so you get a work out with your legs. If youre looking to just tone I think it will be alright, but I dont think it would give you big bulky muscles(if thats what youre wanting) because your lifting your own body weight, so after doing it for a while, it only gets easier.
Hi. I'm female and have had a total gym for several months. Do to an injury (not on the total gym) I wasn't able to use it for several weeks. Now I'm back on it and enjoying it very much. I think it fun, and it is hard work. You can adjust the level of difficulty and lift more or less of your own body weight, and there are something like 200 (I think) different exercises you can do, so you can always change things up. I am really impressed with the leg pulley. Not only is it really awesome for inner thigh toning, but my flexibility (which I didn't have much of before) has improved greatly. I'm also starting to see definition in my triceps, shoulders and biceps, which is very exciting. I would definitly recommend the total gym. As long as you stick with it I think you'll enjoy it.
Hi, to answer your question about the cardio, I know it has certain exercises you can do that would be cardio. You can adjust it so you can do the rowing(thats a good cardio workout) and theres a few others, I cant think of. Like the previous poster said, there are about 200 different exercises you can use it for. I would recommend it. I think my brother in law bought one at Big W, so you might want to have a look there.
Look at QVC. I just got my new total gym yesterday from there and it was the cheapest from anywhere around. You get everything with it too, leg pulleys, squart stand, and a couple more accessories. Well worth the money
I have the Weider Body Works Pro only because I have longer hair and the Total Gym's track literally ripped a good chunk of my hair out when I tried it, even though it was in a ponytail. The WBW works great - I absolutely love it and am sure that the TG works just as well!
