Wonderful easy to use
Pauline from Choudrant, LA– Verified Buyer
I have two herneriated disk in my back very easy to use without any pain to back. I had been going to Physcial Therapy for hip pain. My treatments were preformed on a Pilates Performer Several weeks after therapy was over my hip was starting to hurt a little. I decided to buy the Pilates Performer instead of returning to therapy. After one week of using the performer the pain in the hip has gone away. This perfomer works well for the money. I am getting a little older and arthrisis is starting to set up and I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I can tell that these aches and pains are getting better. I have been spending about 45 minutes a day doing simple leg and arm streches. The only thing I suggest is when putting together have help. The AeroPilates Performer weighs about 100 LBS and is difficult for one person to put on the frame. I did it alone but would have been much faster and a lot easier with help. Also be sure you have room for it. The performer is a lot longer than I anticipated and you need room to do the leg exercises with the pull ropes. I give this product five stars and would suggest that all people of all ages use this for an excellant workout that does not put stress on the body.
Good product for beginners

The Stamina AeroPilates Reformer with Rebounder is a decent product. I can appreciate what other reviewers mentioned - if you are taller than 'average', exercises on the machine would be limited as you can't adjust the reformer for your height. If you are very strong, this machine (at least with the 4 black cords provided) would be far too easy to use. It's perfect for my needs. I have a treadmill and weights and wanted to include something in my weekly workouts that would help with my core. I find that I could use more resistance on my legs but with greater reps, I really start to feel it in my arms and abdominals. I would definitively recommend this product to a novice or someone like me, who is not really strong. The machine was very easy to assemble and moves smoothly.

This product and DVD's are excellent. I have injuries and can not do impact exercise. This machine allows me to get my cardio and stretch and build my muscles. It also assists me with movements in my joints that I am not able to do because of my injuries therefore helping to prevent future problems with joints etc. I love this machine. It has helped me with my life enabling me to exercise in a manner that I would not be able to do conventionally. I thank you for making this machine available.

My sister attends a gym where this equipment is available and she said it worked well for her.
Pilates is awesome!

This machine definitely met my expectations. Very well made. Only problem is the CD only plays on the computer so I can't easily watch it while I exercise.
Good product for home workouts
Cat lover from Austin, TX– Verified Buyer
I am a yogi who wanted to expand the workout routine. Pilates was always fascinating to me and I worked with Reformers before. This is a an ok product for the price. Easy to assemble but very smelly. It took me several months to clear the smell out of the room. I love the rebounder, it really works the abs. The instructions and vidoes are basics, go on YouTube and search for more advanced exercises. If you are tall this is not the right model for you. Also it is heavy, I don't fold it but I assume it is not an easy task you could perform everyday. Overall it does a good job.
great product it is as discribed .

Really works great! Hard to put together....no way to put under bed....hard to move after it is put together.

The performer took a while to put it together, but so far it is working very well. It is very well constructed. I have bought other pilates products from your site and I am pleased with all pieces. The price and shipping I was also pleased with.
