I compared this machine to others & did lots of research before purchased THIS … 12 levels of body weight resistance was a major plus, the quality of the machine a plus, and the attachments when used gives you more exercising.
Inclosed with the machine, pins & attachments, also came a ‘FLIP CHART’ of exercisers that attaches to the top of the machine. Also included is a 50 minute DVD ( haven’t used this) and an ‘exercise guide’ booklet (8×11) and a ‘nutrition guide’. This is a complete package, you won’t really need to buy anything else.
I had ordered the ‘Total Gym’ exercise wall chart which is NOT needed (wish this was mentioned before)
Unboxing the Total Gym was easy. Just cut through the packing tape along the edges of the box, then lift the cardboard lid. Total Gym was folded and fully assembled inside the box. To get Total Gym (TG) out of the box, no need to lift it. Just cut along all four corners of the box and the box will collapse flat. Simply move TG off the now flat box. Make sure to remove all the cushioning, padding, and foam you find. Underneath the glideboard are two padded cardboards. Make sure to remove them. Did I say the TOTAL GYM came FULL ASSEMBLED? Yes it is fully assembled!
Not sure why some users are having a hard time folding and unfolding the TG. I am only 5ft 1in, and weight 137 lbs. I am a very tiny man but I don’t it difficult to fold and unfold the TG. The TG isn’t even heavy if you lift it folded. First few tries, yet it can be a bit tricky but once you know the steps, it’ll be quick. I can unfold mine in 2 minutes, and fold it back in 2 minutes, with minimum effort. The trick is to do SLOWLY and be aware of your fingers as you move it around the underside of the TG.
The TG comes with all the accessories you need:
1) short pins.
3)a set of dip bars
6)DVD featuring Dan Isaacson discussing 18 exercises you can do three times a week (excellent dvd produced in 2002, and he still says “Rewind the tape”. It’s that old but still VERY USEFUL.) I encourage prospective buyers to watch it.
8)Flash Card with rings containing exercises shown on manual
9)TG clipboard to mount flash cards
This is my first TG and I am loving it. I strongly recommend this product. You might not end up looking like Chuck Norris (yikes!)with all his chest hair; but you will definitely have a great workout. Also, don’t forget to purchase two rubber mats from Total Gym. You don’t want to scratch your floors or tear your carpet.
