    There's only a few reviews on Amazon but all are good. What do you all think of this for home?

    If a product has to resort to corny photoshopped pics, I would say you're better off spending your money elsewhere.

    I don't buy it!
    BTW, Photoshopping indirectly gives us the fact that it's not good enough/confident enough to avoid Photoshop.

    Stick to a regular gym and use the machines there. I think you'll find it much more gratifying. icon_biggrin.gif

    $200 for a chair and some flex bands? Ridiculous. A fool and his money are soon parted. (Hint: Anytime they bury the cost deep into the add just under the credit card information, its probably junk.)

    A good training system challenges your body by increasing the strain you put put on it. That's how you gain muscle.

    Variety is good but overall you've got to increase the weight that you lift etc.

    A lot of these home systems can get you to a certain point and then you max out on what they can offer you in terms of resistance.

    Might work for toning though. But that could also be limited.

    I've heard of people complain that home systems like that become tedious and repetitive after a while which isn't good for motivation.

    It's a bit confusing, the advert is too flashy. Looks like you can't push very much weight on it so the benefits may not be huge.
    Better to use the full range of machines and weights at a communal gym.

    "50 different exercises on 1 chair." Right. Dude, just join a gym.

    Don't buy. It will end up in a garage sale - and then the trash heap.

    Check out Jeff Cavalier. I'm a PT and I love his stuff.
    He has multiple programs and plenty of advice videos on YouTube. Best thing is it's web based so it's much less expensive and you don't do the same DVD over and over.
    Worst thing is he talks too much.
