Total Gym 1000, Total Gym 2000, and Total Gym 3000 Reviews

Is The Total Gym Fitness Equipment For You?

I'm sure you've seen the infomercial for the Total Gym Fitness machine featuring Chuck Norris as the spokes person. So are you considering buying a Total Gym exercise equipment for you home? Read our Total Gym review, and you can probably make a better, and more informed buying decision.

So Many Total Gym Models, Which One To Buy?

Total gym has many different models to choose from, starting with Total Gym 1000, which is the most basic model. Then there's the Total Gym 1500, Total Gym 1700 Club, Total Gym 2000, Total Gym 3000, and the XLS model. Finally, you get up to the "super high end" models like the Total Gym 14000 all the way up to Total Gym GTS.

So many models, which one should you choose?

In all honesty, I don't think you're getting your money's worth going over the Total Gym 3000 series. Or in other words, spending more than $1000 for it. Why? Simply, for the average user, an average model should meet all your needs. Essentially, all the models do exactly the same thing, with the only major differences being a few little extra add-ons, slightly thicker (heavier duty) construction, ability to hold more weight, or accommodate for a taller person. Other than that, you're NOT getting your money's worth going with the super high end models. Heck, if I were to spend $3000 on a Total Gym, I'd rather get a complete machine workout station.

To give you a better idea of the differences between all they Total Gym models, I did a comparison article. Click here for the Total Gym exercise equipment models comparison.

Total Gym Review: What I Thought Of My Total Gym Exercise Equipment

Total Gym has been on the market for quite a long time. Back in the early 1990's I had a Total Gym myself. I can't remember what model it was, but I know it's a higher end model from the thick padding, and the number of available resistance levels. (The more basic models has less resistance levels.) I was also taking Tae Kwon Do at that time, so I figured it would be great for my Tae Kwon Do training.

I have to admit, even though it didn't come close to building the muscles I was hoping for, it did do a lot of good overall - especially for my upper body. I had the Total Gym for over 3 years, during which time I also got into serious weight lifting.

I'm going to tell you right now, if it's muscles you're after, then you'll be disappointed with Total Gym. It's not meant to build bulky muscles, but more so for overall fitness. From what little I knew about working out back then, I started a regular workout schedule using the Total Gym exercise equipment. I didn't know better back then to work different muscle groups and give it enough rest - I was down in the basement 4, 5 times a week doing mostly slight variations of the same movements. (Yes, I should've known better... )

But still, I have to say I started seeing some noticeable improvements in my overall physique, and I did become stronger, and felt much more capable during my Tae Kwon Do training sessions. Of course, this was all before I discovered the joys of weight lifting. :)

So, if you're after a leaner, and toned look, I'd have to say the Total Gym can really deliver some nice results. If you can stick to a regular workout schedule and actually spend a few minutes watching their instructional videos, I think you'll find yourself in much better overall health and physical condition.

Again, I have to warn you, if it's muscles and strength you're after, Total Gym is NOT for you.
