Best for the money, love it, large piece of equipment and heavy, but easy to put together. if you are thinking of buying one and don't want to spend 1000's then this is a great buy I am very happy with my choice to buy it. added plus' are it is off the ground, and it comes with the extra neck and head pillow. have not used the CD's yet, just do my own thing, so I can't comment on those.
I ordered the gym just before christmas,I live in Australia & was surprised that I came within 10 days, I am very happy with it, it is everything you said it was r**********

Great product and I enjoy working out on this machine 3 times a week. I can see noticeable difference in my abs in 4 weeks. Such a concept of a machine that can tighten your abs and you get to exercise while lying down. I love it. It's also good for improving arm strength. I am pleased that I finally got this machine.

- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? There was a slit on the seat but Overstock immediately sent out a new seat. It was easy to replace the old damaged seat for the new one too.
I am a 45 yr old female. I've always been in decent shape, but four natural births did a number on my core and pelvic floor. I have struggled over the last several years with back pain and mild pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) symptoms. Doctors have not been much help. My own research has helped me learn quite a bit about what exercises I should NOT be doing (i.e. Sit-ups, jogging, anything high impact, etc.), but I was frustrated trying things and experiencing flare ups with my back or pelvic floor. I started seeing a physical therapist who has some experience in treating patients with PFD. She started putting me on the Pilates reformer. I loved the stretching and strength exercises, but it was costing a fortune! One evening I got distracted by a child while flipping channels. I just happened to leave the tv on a shopping channel, glanced up, and saw people doing the same exercises I had been doing with the physical therapist. I immediately got online and found a great deal at Overstock on this Premier Studio model. Simple to set up. I did it without my husband and with the help of three children. I have been working on the machine about every day for 30 mins to an hour for about three weeks. I use the DVDs and lighterliving online videos. I am amazed at how much stronger I have gotten. My clothes are fitting the way they did two kids ago. Rebounding for cardio is the answer for those with PFD issues. No gravity pulling everything down. I am strengthening my core which only alleviates the back pain. I'm toning my arms, getting rid of the little belly pooch from all those babies. This thing is a game changer!!! And I'm saving $$$ in PT bills. It is rather large, but it's really the only piece of exercise equipment you need. It does fold if you need to get it out of the way. I love this model because the stand allows for more exercise options as does having four cords. I am thrilled with my AeroPilates Gym!
I really wanted to love this, but I just don't. My main issue is that it's quite unstable without the riser bar, and part of the appeal for me was that it could be used with or without it. Additionally, it arrived with the carriage cover already ripped on the side and makes quite the squeaking noise when the carriage is moved back and forth. Sadly this item isn't worth the $500 for me and I'm disappointed that the company would ship out a product with a large hole in the side (and no it isn't from opening the box, it's an impact hole from something).
I put it together by myself. It took me about 40 minutes to do so. I purchased the AERO PILATES beacuse it was suppose to offer a low impact workout. After using for a short while I began to have knee pain from the repetition of pushing on the foot bar. I also found that the padding on the board is not that comfortable. Otherwise, this is a great machine that offers a GOOD workout....You will feel it!
Loved the idea of this machine after watching the infomercial on TV. I normally do daily workouts at home anyway so commitment is not a problem. Then did lots of my own research stumbled across this product on Overstock for far less than this product is offered in Australia, in fact this model is better than what the manufacturer is selling in Australia and I paid about so much less (after shipping to my door)! Very happy with Overstock, product arrived very quickly and was able to track product once shipped. Product itself is fantastic pretty easy to put together, Ive discovered muscles I didn't know I had!

I have owned a Pilates machine for 10 years and outgrew its capabilities. I was reluctant to purchase this because of the price, however, when I got it and used it for the first time I wonderred what had taken me so long to take the plunge! Much better quality than my previous machine and the extra cord will provide me with years of workout success. The cardio board is also an added plus.

This is great! It is a quality piece of equipment, easy to put together, easy to use and it's sturdy!!! I have worked out on professional grade machines and this is right up there with the best. It will also pay for itself-paying for lessons and a trainer really adds up and this is on my time schedule! Love it-best workout ever!
First of all I'm so impressed how quick and prompt delivery time was to Finland, still can't believe it! Product quite easy to assemble (with husbands help) and really sturdy and made of excellent quality. I have not been able to do any cardio for almost two years now, due to my knees, this can now be done without any negative impact on my knees! Could not be more thrilled or happy!
So excited to put this together and use. My husband and I had no trouble with assembly. Great piece of equipment; however, I with the ropes were stronger. Worry that they will wear out fast since it is a step up from yarn. Curious if they offer replacements or even alternative construction option.
It's a great value and performs well. If your short, I'm 5'3" it's to large to really do all the Pilates moves, although I worked around that issue. It's very well made and sturdy. The spring board will give you a great cardio workout without pressure on the knees.
