It was through TV infomercials that I learnt that the Total Gym XLS was different from others in the market. It was the fact that it worked only those parts I wanted to work on that inspired me to buy the item. Though the price looked a bit high, it had a great payment plan and a return back policy if I was not satisfied with the set. So in other words, I had nothing to lose.
Just to be on the safer side, I did some research on the web, and found both positive and negative reviews about the unit. However the positive reviews outnumbered the negative ones, meaning only a small percentage of people received faulty pieces while others were happy with the unit.
When the unit reached me, though heavy, it was packed right which made unpacking easy. Assembly too was easy; it took me just 10 minutes to have it operational. Then I popped the DVD in and immediately tried some exercises. The Total Gym XLS was not only smooth and well built, it had various accessories.
What I loved most about this gym unit is the many workout programs it offers. There are dozens of cards with different workouts where I think the 6-8 minute program is the best. Despite being such a short program, I found my muscles tightening and shaping in just a week’s time. The cards also show which part of the body the exercise works, some coaching tips and how I can amp up the workout too.
So you can say I am really happy with my purchase. If you want to work out at home, this is indeed a great buy. Moreover, the unit can be easily folded and put away if required.Google+
