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!

This is the most cushioned exercise mat that I have ever used. I have Fibromyalgia and this really helps my joints doing floor work for yoga. However, it is so cushioned that is is actually difficult to do some of the standing work on, esp anything that requires balance.

I have seen these mats much thicker than the ones that I received from Overstock and for less money. They are very thin. I will be sending these back or I may just donate them to my favorite charity.

The Stamina Pilates Magic Circle is an excellent workout addition to anyone who does pilates or yoga. It is easy to use and the price @ Overstock.com is hard to beat. I was able to get it on sale and really am grateful that I was able to. I am sure it is much more expensive elsewhere. The Magic Circle is made of quality materials and appears quite sturdy. I have also found the Workout DVD very useful. I highly recommend this product.

This is perfect to use in the home or to take to your favorite pilates matt class. It is lightweight and strong.

I bought this mat because reviews said it was plush and cushiony. I received it with a couple gouges and tried using it it was like sitting on the floor I do not know what others were talking about when reviewing this mat.

I love this mat, it has good thickness. I do my exercises on the hard floor and this mat makes my body feels so comfortable. :)

Good for general exercise purposed wouldn't use for yoga or Pilates. Rolls up and lays flat well. Seems durable.

I have been using a yoga pad for years, but my bones are getting old and tired, so I decided to try this mat because it had some thickness to it...and it does!! It has just enough padding so that I don't feel as if I'm on the bare floor but not too much that I slip around when sweaty. I use it on my area rug, and it does not move at all. It is a thin, oriental rug, so that may make the difference. But I did read at least one review that said it slipped on her rug - that was NOT my experience. I highly recommend this exercise mat to anyone who does pilates, yoga, stretching...I even stand on it when doing resistance training! I'm putting it through its paces and its standing up well.

This is the real deal. Easily foldable with less than 10 lbs lifting pressure. It is extremely sturdy and has all the bella and whistles of a regular Cadillac, May and reformer combined. What I really liked is that there is hardware mounted to hold the attachment springs in place when not in use. Then when simply needing to move across the room, it wheels easily. When you extend the reformer, the front feet go down and it's solid as a rock. If I'm searching for a complaint it would be that they updated the unit and I received old reformer directions. I was confused until finally going back to the website and seeing it worked differently (and better) after the update. Where you can't go wrong is if you use a 10-12% coupon, club I bucks, free shipping and no sales tax... This deal can't be beaten!

This machine is a great for home use. Had I been able to get the more expensive model shipped to an international destination, I would have done so. The DVD's give you enough information to get started on a home program of fitness and in time these exercises can be added to if you go online and seek out other ideas. I am able to situate my Laptop on a chair nearby so that I can do the exercises along with the tape. Perfect!

I had to make some modifications on my machine. With the help of my husband, we added some padding to the bottom bar so that it would be easier to to standing exercises. I also add more padding when I am on my knees. I feel like the rebounder is too low and I am only 5'6". Have not gotten a response back from the manufacturer with respect to the rebounder height being too low for proper form. Supposedly their spokeswomen, her ne starts wih an M, always writes back. It's been a week and I still have not hear anything. So not so happy with the support services.

Took a private pilates class and thought the reformer was the best piece of equipment out there until I tried the spine corrector! It has so many functions when it comes to core strengthening. Love the stretch you can achieve over the barrel!

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.

My doctor kept racing the benefits of Reformer Pilates. But after researching, we saw that the cost of most good machines was out of our price range. And I thought that I would be the only person in our house that would use it. Then I found this machine and with a 15% coupon that I had an my accumulated O Dollars, this was a great deal. Delivery was fast via UPS. Assembly was very straight forward, and I put it together with our 14 year old son, who immediately jumped on a used the video to workout. This comes with 3 DVD's even though it says only one. My wife and boys have started to use this on a regular basis. I love the workouts I get with this, form is important. Very sturdy. Great product.

The Stamina Aeropilates reformer is a fantastic machine and great value.
Yoga is a healthy activity that can be done with very little to no equipment. However, yoga and Pilates equipment, beyond a yoga mat, can help improve your yoga experience and offer greater benefits. Some yoga equipment is designed to accelerate the improvement of beginning yoga practitioners, whereas yoga clothing can benefit everyone.
Many people struggle to understand the differences between yoga and Pilates. That could simply be because the differences between the two practices are very subtle. Both yoga and Pilates offer similar physical benefits but take slightly different approaches to reach those improvements.
The benefits of yoga and Pilates are numerous: improved strength, balance, coordination, stress relief and peace of mind. While yoga doesn't require much equipment, a yoga mat is important for safety and improved performance.
Within the last several years, yoga has become one of the most popular exercise routines in the world. Whether you've seen yoga classes popping up or have passed a yoga DVD in the supermarket, yoga might have recently caught your eye. Although there are many pieces of fitness equipment you can buy for yoga, you only need a few to get started since your yoga workout relies almost completely on your own body.
You know it's important to stay in shape. You've decided to start a new fitness and exercise plan and to invest in some new exercise equipment. You may have many different reasons: training for sports, feeling healthier, or losing weight. With so many choices in exercise, you may be unsure of how to choose the fitness and exercise equipment that will help you reach your goals. This exercise equipment buying guide is designed to help you evaluate your options, choose the exercise that is most appealing, and select the home exercise equipment that will be the most helpful to you.
Resistance bands are an inexpensive and highly effective way to add another dimension to your core training and strength workouts. Unlike training with other fitness equipment, resistance bands use your own body strength and weight against itself to increase strength and flexibility. They are also highly versatile and can be incorporated into yoga, Pilates, weight training and a variety of other fitness workouts.
Over 40 years after the death of Joseph Pilates, his namesake fitness creation, Pilates, has never been more popular. Pilates teaches mental control over the body, which results in a full-body workout. Instead of just a bundle of exercises designed to bulk up the muscles, Pilates aims to reclaim control over the muscles and increase general health. Those who practice Pilates exercise are well versed in its physical and mental benefits. Whether you are considering starting with some Pilates DVDs or signing up for a Pilates studio, your body will thank you; however, if you aren't quite convinced, here are just some of the benefits Pilates can bring into your life.
