Thread: The Total Gym
1/05/2004 5:39pm, #11
Right before the site switched to 2.0 there was another thread about the Total Gym. Someone mentioned they had a chance to get on for cheap on Ebay or something like that and asked if it was worth it. Most of the responses said yes. I tried to find the thread, but it apparently got erased in the move.

I donít see how any home system can match a proper gym. Plus home exercise equipment has a poor resale value and takes up space.

I had a Total Gym for a while. I found it only marginally helpful. THe main thing was at the time I was rather overweight, so it made for a good cardio workout, but almost nothing in terms of strength training. I bought a weight bench, barbell, and free weights and have never looked back. Weights by far have improved my strength the most.Click To Get My Free Training Newsletter... Do It NOW!

Why would anyone buy a Total gym? I really don't think people actually bother to check the prices of things:
Full olympic set $139(often onsale for $99):
Total Gym $250:

it doesn't sound like most of you are fans of home gyms - but I have the following and it's pretty nice (very similar to Hammer Strength Machines)
I've also got a concept 2 rower, and an olympic bar and two full sets of weights for it.
Get's the job done.

After reading Jekyll's threads I bring back an old sig.......
Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.
