It has lots of padding that protects you from the hard floor. In 2010 I was injured badly in a car wreck that really messed up my back. So, I have to be careful how I exercise that pertains to my back. This pad really supports my back from the hard floor and I couldn't be happier with the purchase.
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.
Great deal priced *** under manufactures retail price. See price in cart. Well, lets start with the negatives. Overstock uses ESTES and there is a lack of communication problem where Estes contacts you for delivery confirmation, day of week and time of day, which may change, and you receiving a second automated confirmation call. Which, can be transferred to a human operator which just confuses things because of the lack of communication between all involved parties and not knowing what has already transpired, from the time of purchase, to processing, to shipping that said, the people I spoke with where friendly though unknowledgeable to whats actually happening with prior confirmation calls and actual shipping process. So now on to the positives it was *** less than the manufacture listed retail price for this Pro XP557 model. It has springs not rubber cords. all the assembly tools are provided and they are good quality tools for Allen Wrenches. It states in the assembly instructions requires two people to assemble, though a mechanically inclined individual could do the job with a little more effort, it is a large cumbersome item at a little over 8' long and 160 lbs. it comes with the rebounder thats a bonus one less item to purchase. the DVD series yes, Series 3 DVD's so all levels of training Beginners, intermediate, advanced with easy to follow instruction featuring Marjolein Brugman pilates instructor. It moves a little fast for beginners but pause and rewind can help with that. I'm Glad I purchased the Professional model it is like the one I used at my local YMCA but, now I don't have to pay *** minutes of personal training which I already did for 21 sessions which could have been used to purchase my own Pilates reformer apparatus but now I'm 21 lessons closer to being an advanced user. Summary: Great Deal huge savings confusing delivery process easy assembly lots of fun to use exercising becomes a game thats fun to play and you save money on YMCA, Gym memberships and personal trainers if you want a pilates reformer you can't beat this deal you want this: Stamina AeroPilates Pro XP557 55-5557B Overstock.com sent me an email that stated your order has shipped after it already arrived so be aware of the lack of communication between all parties involved in shipping this over sized item oh yeah there is an addition shipping charge for oversized items it is mentioned at the bottom of the description box on this page.
I bought this over a year ago and have only started using @ 3 months ago. I had shoulder surgery and was not able to use it till recently. My arm muscles had shrunk to almost nothing. Pitiful. After just 3 months and starting from zero, at age 46 & female I am gaining strength back in my shoulders, seeing good definition and watching bingo arms that had just started disappear!!
it is a thin rubber compound mat it is rolled up in a box so when it arrives it needs to be unrolled and left in the sun to flatten out then place it in the room where you plan on placing your stamina AeroPilates reformer I have model XP557 and if sets beneath the apparatus with about 3"-4" extended beyond the reformers foot the apparatus pictured is not included it does the job of protecting the carpet from imprints and catches the sweat of your labors
I'd been shopping for a spine corrector for my pilates studio through the major suppliers of pilates equipment. Cost was 4-5x what I paid for a nearly identical unit here on Overstock. Received my shipment within days of order and it is exactly what I wanted. Well made piece that should last for a long time!
Bought to add to old Pilates Performer machine I owned. Did not fit into the existing holes drilled in frame. Called manufacturer and was told that it was not made for my machine and I had to return. Would have kept it for sure if it worked on my machine.
bought this for the foot of a spare bedroom bed and was worried it was going to be too small. perfect size if you want to open it up and throw it on you, pretty soft for the material, colors as expected. Happy with the purchase
I purchased this system with a 13% off coupon, no sales tax and no shipping! Saved me at least $1000 over Peak Pilates website which sold the system for the same price. It is delivered freight and comes in a huge crate which sat on my patio for days. I had a local fitness equipment delivery service come and move some other equipment around and assemble the reformer. Same reformer as the local pilates studio. Note that switching to two flat mats is difficult. I've figured out that is why the studios leave the bench set up all the time!
I've been doing yoga for over a year now and i had 6 sets of different brands of yoga mat and I can tell that the quality of this brand is awesome! It gives me a perfect grip on doing pose and it never gets slippery! I love it! I will definitely get the other colors soon.
I debated whether I needed this, but now that I am using, it is essential to full enjoyment of the Pilates experience. With the elevation the stand offers, you have much more range of motion, more fun to use, so simple to assemble, fit perfect. All aeropilates users, must add this to further their already great exercise experience.
While the instructional dvd goes a little fast, you can definitely take what you learn and apply it to your own workout at your own pace. It intensifies the exercises and increases the results...I love it!!!
