Overall, this roller is pretty effective, as long as it's used correctly. Good thing it comes with an instruction sheet. The little knee pad it comes with nice, too.

simple to use, and at a reasonable cost. Great for stomach exercises.

The addition of the stabilizing bar is great and useful to people who might otherwise be unable to exercise. (Be sure to check with doctor). Great piece of the equipment! We didn't have a good place to walk and this solved the problem. You can increase the level of energy you us. The bar does not remove easily but we never felt the need to remove it anyway. It is a fun was to exercise and is fun for all ages. If you jump in front of the tv, time flies and you are finished before you know it!

Not only was this a great piece of workout equipment, but it also had a great video along with it. Good price. I've taken it on trips with me to keep up with my workouts.

I would defintely recommend this product!! If your looking for a way to work out your abs this is what you want. The ball is extremely easy to use and comes with easy to read directions and a helpful guide that shows you multiple ways to use the ball. I love this product and have already gotten tighter abs in just one week.

I received this product the other day and I absolutely love it. I am recovering from surgery and I think that this will be a great benefit to obtaining the goal weight that I need. I am glad to know that it can hold up to 250 lb. person. The equipment was packed properly, most parts already assembled and after getting beyond the initial tightness in the machine, I truly love it. I would definitely recommend it to someone and even see if a couple of my friends would like to use it.

The twisting action of this stepper actually puts less stress on the knees than the typical compact stepper, and the elastic bands are a nice bonus. The stepper is a nice size and the platforms are larger than on other similar steppers that i've seen. The computer has an helpful features as well. Overall, a good buy and I might buy another.

I love this little machine! It's easy to put together and easy to use. It can really work your legs. It has resistance options and has a helpful little computer to keep track of your reps/cals/time. The arm bands aren't that helpful and actually throw me off balance a little bit (but maybe you have better coordination than me:) so I just use my hand weights. It is quiet and takes up very little space. I can use this early in the morning without waking up my daughter in the next room.

If your looking to tighten ur buns...and for those of us that are older and would like to have things come back up north where they were heading south lol...this is the perfect workout machine... I have had it for a week and use it every other day and let me tell u at 49 my bottom is looking and feeling great...tightens the legs and buns... the pistons do get very hot if u used it for over the 15mins just dont touch them and they do squeek if ur on the machine for 20mins or longer (i have used it for 30-35mins) but its not an abnoxious squeek . the arm bands are a lil too long for me(im 5'3) but i use my free weights... . I am very very pleased with the results from using this machine and would truly recommend it for anyone who would love to have a bottom of a 20yr old again lol...and my boyfriend loves the results also lol !!!

I wanted something that would not take up a lot of room. I was a bit skeptical because of reviews regarding the hand grips, but have found them to be adequate. I am not tall (about 5'5") but they are sufficient and I can use them. You may need to be a bit creative in how you use them but I think that actually makes for a better workout. This is something that I can hop on while watching TV, talking on the phone, etc (I have even used it while brushing my teeth--just 2 minutes, but, hey--every little bit helps). It is sturdy and does not move on the floor. It was simple to put together. I have no complaints. I have had it for about 6-8 weeks now. I rated it 4 stars on durability solely because I think it needs more time than that to adequately judge but so far it seems durable. I also bought the mini-elliptical sold by OS, and MUCH prefer this, although they are both good and I could recommend either. This was cheaper which is a plus.

First, I need to say that the item was damaged, either before it was ever in the box or in transit. Let's just say the box was not damaged. However, using a hammer, I was able to bend the connections (top metal bar opening for the handrails) and open them up myself so I did not have to send it back. Second, while it was relatively easy to put together, the parts in several places don't fit together well. Third, the digital program device is VERY annoying and non-intuitive (i.e., it's hard to use and get the hang of). Fourth, the base is really small - I am short and petite and I cannot do some of the recommended positions if they involve sitting on the base, because I don't fit. Finally, the wheels on the bottom are worthless - I have to drag it when I move it as the wheels don't even turn, much less facilitate a move. Luckily, it is pretty light so moving the machine is not difficult. However, for the price, this machine does work. The vibration is strong (when set high) and I definitely felt it working. I used it several times then went on vacation, and I have not had a chance to use it since I got back. I will start back up again this weekend now that I am nearly caught up at work. Once I have had it longer, I will see if I can update my review to see if it actually has any affect on my physique. It is also not very wide, so it doesn't take up a lot of floor space.

Purchased this mat to go under my ProForm Treadmill (which I also purchased from Overstock.com) and was the perfect mat size for my treadmill. The mat sits on laminate flooring and it hasn't moved or shifted at all. The quality is heavy duty and I'm extremely pleased with this product. Thanks again overstock.

This is a Powerful little stepper. I could not believe the great work out I got from this unit. The twisting motion is another added bonus to an effective workout and the resistance bands are a plus as well,. It took only a few seconds to assemble which was very easy to do which for me was another added bonus since I am easily intimidated to putting anything together. I burned about 300 calories in 45 minutes which I plan to increase because I need to get accostumed to the feel of the unit. Really worth the little amount of money and it's great on saving space. I also purchaed the Body By Jake heart rate monitor that I returned because it totally sucked!!! I got the Polar heart rate monitor instead so I can get a heart rate read with this unit since it it's the only thing it dosen't do. Happy Fitness to all!RMC

This piece of equipment is a nice addition to my home workout equipment. Fits under the door, and doesn't take up a lot of room. It came with pads for both sides of the door to prevent scratching and will adjust to different heights for the desired fit. I was also pleased to find in the box ideas for other exercises that you can do with this little guy as well. For the money I'd say it delivers.

This compact little stepper fits the bill for what I needed - something small that I could leave out so that I would actually be motivated to use it. It gives you a good workout; you can really feel it in your legs! I had some concern when I read some of the comments about the clips for the resistance bands breaking...but so far, so good. It was worth the money and I would recommend this to others in need of compact exercise equipment.

The fact that you can work out whenever you like in the comfort of your own home is also a big bonus.

To properly use an exercise bench, think beyond bench pressing to the multitude of opportunities for including it in a general fitness plan that involves using a wide range of weights and machines.

Fitting exercise into your busy schedule can be a challenge. Treadmills make it easier to budget exercise into your day by allowing you to run or walk whenever you want. You don't have to worry about weather or time of day or going to a gym. You can hop right on the treadmill in your home gym and get a cardio workout that's customized to your needs whenever you feel like it. However, not all treadmills are created equal. Today's treadmills come with a slew of different features, which can be baffling if you don't know what they all do. We've compiled a brief list of features commonly found on treadmills, so you know what you're looking at as you shop for treadmills.
New variations of tried-and-true exercise machines are always being introduced to the market as the technology of exercise equipment improves. Two exercise machines that have gained popularity are elliptical trainers and treadmills. A major advantage to elliptical trainers is that they possess little risk of injury to the knees, hips, back or ankles. Meanwhile, treadmills are home gym machines on which you can run, walk or jog. The treadmill has been in the marketplace for a long time and is a long-standing piece of standard equipment for most exercise enthusiasts. Elliptical Machines: Elliptical machines present a lower risk of injury to the body. This home gym machine allows the individual to stand in an upright position while supporting her upper body by holding onto the handrails. The individual is able to pick out what muscles to train by shifting the strength on the legs or the arms. This provides for a more flexible workout machine. The machine bears its name because it works to copy the foot's elliptical motion as well as the rotation of the hip during walking or running. Advantages of Elliptical Machines: Since elliptical machines work the upper and lower body, they help you reach your target heart rate more optimally, providing a better cardiovascular workout overall. Individuals can burn a larger number of calories in a shorter period of time. Muscles that benefit from this machine include the legs, shoulders, chest, biceps, triceps and the back. Elliptical machines are also relatively easy to operate and are energy efficient because they do not use much electricity. Treadmills: Traditional treadmills were developed to help you walk, run or jog. Treadmills differ in advantages as there are some machines that have programs that can be customized based on your weight and fitness level. You can also manually control the program to increase or decrease the speed, the incline or the duration of the workout. Walking on a traditional treadmill, however, creates more impact on the knees and hips and may be a cause of injury for some users. Advantages of Treadmills: Some treadmill models have a cushioned surface to support the knees and other parts of the body. With these models, there is a lower risk of injury and an increased level of comfort for the user. Moreover, treadmills provide you with the option to run, jog or walk in the comfort of the gym. Also, you can burn calories by increasing the heart rate, providing a good cardiovascular workout. Buy Home Gym Machines Back to Guides Directory Buy Home Gym Machines
If you want to add resistance to your core training workout, strap on a weighted vest. Ideal for aerobic exercise as well as sporting competitions and training sessions, weighted vests can provide one pound to 60 pounds or more of added weight to allow you to perform sports and recreational activities under more challenging conditions. Some weight vests are designed with removable weights that are added to inside pockets, which can then be taken out as needed. Weight vests are designed for male and female athletes and sports enthusiasts alike as well as those just wanting to increase the resistance level of their fitness and core training during exercise.
