You will need to dedicate just a few minutes per day and the great results are guaranteed. It serves resistance and cardiovascular training purposes as well as stretching and circuit training and lets you do more than 80 exercises on all parts of your body, all in a single machine and can carry a maximum weight of 400 pounds being quite a strong and stable unit. There is not much of assembly work and is easy to store with its foldable design, comes with a lifetime warranty for the frame and 6 months on all parts. It measures 19 x 90 x 43 inches unfolded and 19 x 51 x 9 inches as folded, is quite easy to use and on tens of different exercises you will be working several muscle groups simultaneously. The Total Gym XLS has quite a heavy duty build with solid components and is bigger than the other 3000 model and a lot of the included- listed features are upgraded and you’re getting all the other extras (even though you may see only the squat stand as the upgraded one). And Total Gym is obviously a very well known brand for great modern design and functional products.
Customers are reporting very positive results on different websites, how they started working out very quickly straight out of the box without assembling much, how it feels like having the whole gym in the house with the variety of exercises they can do and how they felt it all over their bodies even after the first session. Just be careful if you have certain health problems and it is always a good idea to consult your health care advisor like with any exercise program but it is up to you how easy or hard you want to do or what part of your body you want to work on easier or harder. It is not a cheap home gym system but if you are not worried much about cost and if you want the best model out there then this would make a great all in once gym system to have but if you’re on a limited budget then you can still get a lot done with the other Total Gym models, especially the 3000 and whichever model you choose, you should be able to use it for many years. And the great thing is, if you are one of those people that don’t like going to gym, you can have only this one in your home gym and not have all the free weights, heavy and large machines and do anything you would at the gym.
