Are you looking to work out? Do you want to lose some extra weight that you've built up? Maybe you want to add some muscle or firm up some areas of your body? Home gym systems provide the convenience of getting in shape at your home and on your schedule, without an audience of onlookers or stressful and expensive monthly membership dues.

There are basically two different types of home gym systems - gyms with weight plates, and gyms with resistance systems. Weight plate gyms come with a various set of weights that you use to work out. These home gyms are generally more complex, more expensive, and better recommended for serious body builder individuals.

Cost:

From $599 to $876

If you've ever stayed up late flipping television channels you've probably come across Chuck Norris and Christie Brinkley promoting the Total Gym home gym system. This resistance gym was initially sold to the rehabilitation market, but in 1995 Total Gym was licensed for the direct response and retail markets. Placing Total Gym on American TV allowed for a comprehensive demonstration to potential customers and was a good way to broaden it's reach to the home gym market.

Total Gym is an incline plane training device that uses from 6 to 60% of an individual's body weight as resistance. A position change on the glide board allows individuals to change the exercise and muscles they're working on.

Total Gym gym comes with a nice 30-day trial offer which allows you to try the product in your home before you're fully committed. The product comes fully assembled and is only 96 pounds, making the transportation of the equipment generally easy.

Equipment overview:

  • Type of Home Gym: Resistance technology
  • Cost Range: $599 - $876
  • Different Models: 3
  • Financing Available: No, but offers payment plan to spread out the cost
  • Weight Resistance: Dependant on your body weight at 6-60% of your total weight
  • Return Policy: 4 weeks trial period
  • Guarantee: Lifetime on the frame, and warranty on the parts ranges from 0- 6 months
  • Shipping: Free

With Total Gym, you can anticipate good toning and a pilates-style workout. This is a good machine for firming up specific body areas. The Total Gym also comes pre-assembled and is easy to move around if needed.

Since the resistance with Total Gym is dependant on your body weight, bodybuilders would probably be better served by looking at another type of home gym. Also, we think the parts warranty could be improved and standardized across all models.

If you're looking for a convenient home gym that will give you a workout at an affordable price, Total Gym is definitely worth your consideration.

Resistance systems use methods other than heavy weights to fulfill your workout regimen. These home gyms are typically much more affordable and easier to move, but depending on the type of system they may not be as effective or easy to operate.

Several different brands of home gyms exist today. These gyms range greatly in cost and quality, so before you make the decision to purchase a home gym, you need to consider several factors. Some of these include:

  • Cost.  What is the price range for the different home gyms offered?
  • Weight Resistance.  What is the maximum weight resistance accompanied with each home gym?
  • Return Policy.  Does the company enable you to return your home gym for a full refund if you're not happy with it?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Home Gyms available today. We hope these reviews help you find that healthier, happier you!
