Questions & Answers for Total Gym Total Gym 1800 Home Gym

Question

What is the real difference between Total Gym and Weider Total Body Works 5000

My biggest concern is that this machine will be stored under my California Queen bed (what is the max height when you store it) and I would like the option to do some pilates exercises (realize the Wieder machine does not come with video however, is the potential of re-creating the moves there?). What other attachments does it come with?

Maximum height fully assembled and with the seat on it lying flat is 8 inches at the highest point. If you remove the seat pad, which it will instruct you on how to do so, you actually come in under 7 inches.
Pilates bar, leg pulley kit, wing accessory, dip bars, press up bars, ab crunch boards, and of course the machine itself.
There is a huge amount of Pilates workouts on the video, I actually grew bored watching it, I am not into Pilates, and the video goes into deatil showing many, almost 60 moves that you can do (don't quote me) but there are lots of them.

The machine can be used by anyone, even children, if you can drag it on the rollers to the place you are working out and are able to manipulate the machine into setup position then you will be able to use it. It is not really hard, watch the video first he shows all the steps, and Maureen is pretty small and she can set it up too.

Well I'm 5'4" so I'm taller but I don't think you would have any problems using it. It is really adjustable.

Near or about 250 lbs. The 2000 model is built basically the same and has the same structure, I would say it will hold about 250 lbs easily. The resistance is determined by the amount of body weight placed on the machine and it varies according to how you set the incline, it could give as much as 300lbs. resistance in my best estimate, although that can't be precise since TG company didn't print anything regarding it online.

Question

What is the maximum resistance compared to other machines in Total Gym family?

I was wondering what the total amount of pounds of resistance that the machine can create? Most standard machines will state 210lbs. resistance and such, What is the Res. on this one and the 2000, and the 3000?

I have a Total Gym 1800. It all depends on how much the individual weighs and how the glide board is positioned. You can raise the glide board to add resistance. Hope this helps.

There is no way to give you a number to answer that question. That depends on how much YOU weigh and what level of incline you set it at. For example: a 150 lb person would get 66 lbs of resistance at level 7 and a 200 lb person would get 87 lbs of resistance on level 7. If you want to be a body builder the total gym is not for you, use free weights, but if you want to slim and tone your entire body the total gym is a great gym for you.

All parts are covered by the first year warranty for the machine, if you do not have the extended warranty I would have suggested you get it before your first one expires so you are covered. That's why we push that warranty on you in store so you're covered. The best and only really good way to get parts, is to contact the manufacturer at the number or address included in your paperwork when you bought the machine. It may cost you if you have no warranty and my suggestion is buy extra if need be.

For the most part it's assembled. It took me less than 10 minutes to get it up and together. The main frame with the glider board is already attached as are the pulleys. The main thing you have to do is read the directions to do a couple of things before you fold it out. This model comes with a bunch of accessories that you don't have connected when not in use so it looks like you have a bunch of stuff to put together when you really don't.
