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!
