We have been living on a borrowed Stamina brand inversion table for almost a year and decided to return it and buy a new one for our own. We wanted something sturdy. I like this brand much better than the Stamina because of the foot bars. The grips on the Stamina get painful pretty quick - I found these roller bars to be much better! My husband assembled it so I can't say whether or not it was difficult - he had it together pretty quick, but we were famliar with how an inversion table should work, so perhaps that made it easier. If there were a star for "ease of use" would give it a 4 out of 5. The handle bars on the side are awkward - I like the stamina ones that go straight up better. But it's definitely not a deal breaker. The other thing that is odd is that on the way down, it sort of "bumps" or shifts. Everything looks totally sturdy, but it's just a "looser" and less smooth feeling than the Stamina. It is also more difficult to fully invert even with the tether strap completely off. But since there's not too much reason to actually 100 percent invert, this is not a big deal either. (A note about the weight limit - I'm not sure what the other reviewer was talking about with the literature stating that it only is approved up to 300lbs. My booklet said right on the front in big bold letters, and all through it, 350. Perhaps they got the wrong booklet with theirs.) I still prefer this brand and the price is EXCEPTIONAL. I would recommend it. We bought our own because, due to having bronchitis, my husband had injured his back from the excessive coughing. It was very painful. We figured we'd spend at least this plus valuable time to go to our chiropractor, at $40 a visit. Well, we didn't need to, because within a little over a week, his back was 100 percent better. I have have had a chronic neck problem for years and have spent over $2000 in chiropractic to fix it. Once I stopped going to the chiropractor, I would throw it out again eventually and the pain would start all over again. Using a combination of an inversion table and "trigger point therapy" (google it!) I have fixed my own neck and have been problem free for almost a year. I have a range of motion I never had before and all wtihout chiropractic. I would highly recommend trying an inversion table for any back or neck issues, as well as purchasing The Trigger Point Workbook. Chiropractic is great, but those muscles will just keep pulling the vertebrae right back out of alignment once you discontinue your visits, and who can afford to go a couple of times a week forever?

Just what you need, when you cant get to the gym. Wish I bought the stand, just to get them off of the floor. Price was great on sale, two hundred less than Bowflex Selecttech 552.

We bought the Stamina 1700 Power Tower to use with the P90X fitness program. We wanted a pull-up bar that did not have to attach to our walls, ceilings, or on our door frames in our new home. Overstock.com had the best price because of the 2.95 shipping ... other sites wanted 30 just for shipping. The 1700 has a heavy duty frame and was pretty simple to put together. The only problem we have had with it is that when doing pull-ups, we have to be careful as the machine rocks and wobbles on the floor, we are not sure if it is because it is set on the concrete garage floor that has a slight slope in it. We have found by doing pull-ups facing the opposite way then the machine is more stable. Overall it serves the purpose that we need it for.

The bar comes with a poster outlining lots of different exercises to do with the bar. It just adds another dimension to the gym, more great ways to shape and tone. I cannot do traditional sit-ups, so I love the abdominal work that can be done with the bar. (Also read my review of the Premier Studio Gym.)

The Stamina X plyometric box is a great workout addition. No assembly required, use out of the box. Only need to adjust the various heights you can work with. Very stable platform, wider than most of these items. Item is fairly heavy but that is a plus when considering stability and whether it will hold up. Works for 300+ pound folks and everyone else.

I am a 68-year-old woman who has been using a three-cord AeroPilates machine for a little over a year. I previously added a stand and extra cords. The pull-up bar accessory completes my machine and greatly expands the versatility of exercises I can do. The accompanying chart with various exercises is easy to use. I am not mechanically inclined, but I easily removed the old end piece and attached the pull-up bar myself. I love this new addition to my AeroPilates machine.

The Stamina Aeropilates reformer is a fantastic machine and great value.

My husband, soon to be 92, has become extremely frail -- not surprising, of course. And most exercise equipment requires either walking or getting up and down, or just some strength measure he simply no longer is able to achieve. With this chair and the changes you can make to it as strength improves, he is able to do a great deal to improve his cardiovascular abilities and stamina. It has been and will continue to be very useful indeed.
