Question

My legs and gluts need a good work out. How does this machine perform for those muscle groups?

For the abs, this product is great when done properly on machine. When I first started using the machine my abs burned for the first few days. I have not done much on the leg exercises yet but what I have done it performs great. If you think you need extra weight when doing squats then just grab a free weight and hang onto it while doing squats.

You set your own resistance. I feel it is good and the pilates will do what you want if you use it.

The product comes with a DVD which has a Pilates session which covers that area. Also there is a flip chart which comes with the gym that tells you what exercises will target specific areas.

If you use the bar that you place on the bottom of the machine, positioning your feet flexed, it is very effective for the calf muscle.

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.

answer 1
6'7" is about the max this machine may handle, the key here is the board is pretty big and you can lie down on it easily no matter the height.
325lbs is the maximum weight suggested.

375-400lbs. under normal circumstances, you really want to operate the machine at the lower height settings if you are over 375lbs, this way there is not so much weight being exerted on the downward angle of the machine. The weight you are is directly proportional to the weight you will lift or move, so for the first months or until you are able you may want to stay on the lower 3 settings.
