I actually stopped into "2nd Wind" sports store, and they had one of the Total Gyms for sale. I was pretty sceptical, but I climbed on it for the heck of it. Well, shockingly I broke into a sweat on it! And it seemed to be made of quality materials.
A posting above stated that all of these are junk and to join a local gym instead. I think that this was a pretty generalized statement that does not apply to everyone. The reason so many of these "contraptions" are on people's yard sales is due to their laziness, I know I've been there myself!! People buy these things because they think they will actually work out on them, then they lose interest and quit. Here is were the magical idea of just joing a health club breaks down: How many people do you know that join a gym and then quit going? That is the same thing as someone selling their contaption at a garage sale.
I'm not saying you are going to become a world class body builder on tghe Total Gym (if that is your goal, then join Gold's Gym), but if you stick with it you WILL get a decent workout and tone your muscles. I've owned one for five months and seen good results. It's actually kind of a fun workout.
