I bought this because the weight limit was 350 lbs. Not that I weight that much but I wanted it to be sturdy and last a long time. Also easy to get on and off and adjust as needed if more than one person is using. Can't say if it would be good for doing crunches since I only invert and not all the way yet. I also wanted comfort on my ankles and this has it. Takes an hour to an hour and a half to put together but the directions were clear. This has 5 star reviews on this website and others which also influenced my decision to purchase..
I live in the mountains. Had a 2" trailer hitch installed on my Jeep. Ordered this bicycle rack from Overstock. The rack itsself is very substantial. It's solid, and weighs 31 lbs. My mountain bike fits on it snuggly. This rack is going to serve me fine, because I only need to drive about four to five miles to where I will be riding, but it is not going to work for anyone who has to drive over bumpy roads to get to where they are going to ride. Why? The normal ball-mount that fits into the 2" trailer hitch is secured in place by a 5/8" pin. This rack has a 1/2" screw-type locking pin and treaded detail for securing to the trailer hitch mount. Once the bike is secured in place, the whole rack has about 2-3" of play in either direction. In other words, the bike can swing 4 - 6 " while it is being transported. If I had known that this rack didn't have the 5/8" locking pin assembly like my trailer hitch I probably wouldn't have purchased it.
The lady in the picture wearing this vest makes you believe it's for small petite females. I am 5' 2" and 115 lbs. This vest is too big to run in and it still bounces on my back if I'm walking fast. I do wear it to the gym to add to my lifting regime or when I'm cutting the lawn, but I will have to resew the elastic sides so that it does not bounce and hit my mid back.
I recently had a wake up call and by that, I mean a heart attack! I decided that my life style had to change, so I started out exercising on a recumbent bike exerciser, but although I was working my lower body and loosing weight, my upper body felt no change. I started to research different exercising machines and came across the BodyTrack Glider 35-1050D, which I purchased, based on the reviews that were posted about it on Amazon. When I received it, I was surprised that it was almost fully assembled and what was left to attach, was quite easy. I am 6' 2" and weighed 252 lbs at time of purchase. I do a 30 minute session daily, fast pace rowing for 5 min increments, with 1 min breaks in between. With just 1 month into my routine, I have lost 4 pounds and I'm starting to get muscle tone back into my upper body. I'm in no hurry to reach my goal, as my doctor always reminds me, slow, but steady. I'd also like to add, that I'm 65 years old, which shows that you're never to old to start exercising. I don't like to exercise, but with this rower, in front of my TV and doing my 30 min. routine, I fine it very invigorating and not boring. The only thing I wish, is that there would have been some workout programs include with the instructions for the BodyTrack Glider 35-1050D, as I couldn't find anything online, so I made up my own. For the price, you can't go wrong and as well built as this machine is, I feel it will be with me, as long as I'm able bodied.
