    ... and I wonder if there are RJ'ers here that have tried this and like it?

    I am going to a demo session tomorrow. I'll let you know what I think. It looks like a way to get a toned, athletic body.

    That's what I'm trying to figure out. There's a guy on here who uses it, but I can't remember his username, lol.

    From what I can tell, it is a body weight exercise deivce that you can leverage against your body weight.

    The tricky part is that there is some slop in how you can pull yourself up or around with it, so maintaining proper form recruits a lot of additional muscle for balancing.

    Sort of an expansion on the classic gymnast rings, from what it looks like to me.

    Regardless of what you buy. You will not realize a major change without, for one, wanting a real lifestyle change. Dedication for a change on your mind-set. It's a long term thing. It doesn't change overnight. If your looking for your man body. Work at it. Walking, streching, lifting, mow the yard, just be physical in some fashion.
    Good Luck!

    1.) Ignore AllFriday
    2.) If you know you can dedicate yourself to using it, then get it.
    3.) Muscle gains? Only if you are willing to eat properly and change your habits.
    4.) It is my favorite piece of equipment hands down. Every trainer who works with me agrees, BUUUUUT, like any other piece, it is a tool in a larger repertoire.

    Hi Alpha:

    I have used it in several occasions with my trainer - like Pinny has said -

    I agree - is just another piece of equipment.

    What I can tell you is the first time I saw it and my trainer said lets go; I said -you got to be joking that will not do anything...I was completely wrong.... the workout was as intense as any cardio or muscle strengthening exercise I have done. You will be amazed on the amount of resistance and different exercises you can do. Additionally, it was also entertaining learning new techniques of building the same muscles group, but with a different angle. Is good to change the routine since your body tends to adapt.

    Bottom line - the equipment is just one variable to the equation - nutrition + perseverance is the other.

    I am in the process of buying one for myself as well on those days I can not make it to my trainer.
