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 weighs 62 lbs, with all the accessories the total is actually 93 lbs. approx. The total shipping weight is 103 approx.
The user weight maximum is 275 lbs.
The total weight resistance varies on your body weight vs. the machine's height and it will be 5% your body weight to 52% your body weight.

At or about 250 lbs. it will hold about as much as the 2000 model since they are so closely constructed as a whole.

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.

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.

answer 2
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.
