Nowadays, we spend most of our time sitting. We sit at work and sit in the car on the way home. Human Beings need a little more activity than that to stay healthy. Keeping your body healthy is essential for a long life. The heart is a muscle. Like all muscles, it strengthens with exercise. A healthy heart pumps oxygen rich blood throughout your body.

A home gym is exactly what it sounds like; a space in your home, for example, a spare bedroom or in a garage, which is used to exercise. There could be a large selection of equipment, or just an empty space with some hand weights, depending on your workout. The Total Gym XLS Trainer is the top of the Total Gym line of machines. Even just shoving aside your coffee table and doing some push-ups can be a good start. There are also a number of options on the market that are all-in-one machines, meant to allow a full range of exercises without a needing several different sets of equipment. That means they don’t just have a few extra pounds here and there but are significantly overweight. A home gym may be increasingly necessary. One-third of U.S. If nothing else, overweight Americans paid nearly $1500 more per year in health expenses.

Want to switch up your existing workout routine, but aren’t sure where to begin? You’re in luck, because the Total Gym workout system also offers a wide variety of products designed to help you along the way. The Total Gym 1000 is the first in line of all the Total Gym exercise equipment collection. The 1000 is the most basic model, but it can basically do the same exercises as the higher models. With each addition in the Total Gym models, you get a little bit more. Some models offer a thicker pad, others, slightly bigger board, or ability to accommodate more weight and height. One of the home fitness solutions offered is the Total Gym Platinum Plus. It boasts six attachments designed for crunches and squats, plus a wing attachment, flexibility bar, and leg pulley system, so you can tailor your routine to meet your unique goals.

Testimonial from a Real Buyer

Total Gym 1000 Home Fitness Folding Exercise Equipment Machine on ...

“I’m 72 an need to get fit. It’s a little late for me but I am trying. It was shipped to the store in good condition, and Walmart staff were helpful getting it to my truck. I opened it up outside and everything was there and in good working order. My wrists have the big A (arthritis), and it took longer to put together than it would a healthy person. I purchased the Total Gym 1100 because I was not sure how I would like it and use it, and I didn’t want to spend the money if I wasn’t going to use it. So far, I have it in the 5 setting and do 200 Seated rows and 100 bicep curls and squats. It is better than going to a gym – which I did for awhile because I didn’t have to pay for with my health insurance. Now that I have used it (the Total Gym 1100) for almost 2 weeks, I would have gotten the 1900 or new model thru Walmart because it is cheaper buying thru them. If I would have got this machine years sooner I would be in better shape now… If you just like to use hand wipes on all machines, drive to a gym, pay Dues and be with sweaty people, then go to gym. I watched all the commercial, looked at YouTube and decided to buy. I like this $200 Total Gym and I think you will too.”

Testimonial 2 from a Real Buyer

“Great machine with so many possibilities. A bit daunting when you first look at it all stretched out in the bedroom, but when you feel the muscles burn after only a few moments of the work out, you know you made the right choice.”


Total Gym offers the 1000, 2000, and Total Gym 3000, all the way up to the commercial version, the Total Gym GTS. Some physical therapists have of  the GTS in their offices to rehabilitate their clients from past injuries.The GTS is basically the same exact piece of equipment as home Total  Gym versions (XLS, 3000, 2000, 1600, 1400, 1100, 1000, etc.). The difference is that the Total Gym GTS is designed for commercial use.  The advantage of using the Total Gym for rehabilitation is that every exercise regardless of the body part forces you to use your stabilizer muscles, specifically your core. This is similar to real life activities. In addition to this, many Total Gym exercises cannot be imitated by traditional free weights or via other forms of resistance training equipment.
