The equipment is five stars equipment. However Kama the box that I received it in was all banged up and the shipper put a label stating that I should take pictures of the box and then check for damage on the inside. 2 plastic end caps we're stoved and the manufacturers label was all torn up. My rating would have been 5 stars if the manufacturer would have cooperated. They sent me two replacement end caps but neglected to send me the rectangular metal manufacturer's label. I don't understand this because the label actually represent the company as much as their product. If I was allowed to post a picture with this I would post a picture of the label and how banged up it is. This is quite distracting from otherwise good looking equipment.
Great addition to my home gym equipment setup. Quickly went over an open door and provides narrow, wide and neutral grips for chin ups (either straight arm or bent - depending on the height at which you hang it and your own height). Very sturdy and requires minimal assembly, with all needed tools included in the box. The hanging ab straps can be added if desired to add additional exercises - it says you can use this for sit ups and push ups, but I think it's probably unneeded and minimally helpful there. The upper bar did leave a faint black mark on the wall above my door after repeated uses, but nothing that can't be removed (or in the worst case, painted over). Sometimes, in all things, the old ideas are the best - and in this case, it certainly is true. Pull-ups/Chin ups may be an old style workout, but can still make a quality addition to any work out.
This is a good quality exercise/yoga ball. There are many uses for this ball. My daughter would use it for yoga but my husband and I use it for exercise. My husband has a back problem and I have a back and shoulder problem. Out of the box it came out and it was sealed in a clear plastic bag with a white plastic plug and a plug remover if you wanted to deflate the ball at a later time. A hand pump was included in the box. The ball was a dark grey with SABLE written on it with white lettering. The only thing I would of changed is the color of the ball. A metallic purple would of suited me better. The ball didn't talk hardly any time to pump up. The plug inserted easy and has stayed inflated for days without any air loss. The ball is great to do our exercises on. It has ribs around the ball so it doesn't slip. It's easy to control and the air stays in. If you happen to sweat or get something on this it cleans up easy. Also doubles as an extra seat if need be. With it around people can't keep their hands off it!
Purchased Sept. 2016. After reading other reviewers, I anticipated easy setup. Not the case. Assembly took more than 5 hours. Would have been easier if photo of Aeropilates had been enclosed/attached on box. Had to Google for more detailed instructions. Be careful when getting off machine, especially is you have hypertension as I do. Occasionally I am dizzy when getting up from Aeropilates, even though I have stand. In summary, I am pleased with this piece of equipment and feel better after using it.
