Enjoying the benefits of a home workout is now widely recognized as one of the most effective ways of improving health and building a better body. But for those who want to take this route to a healthier lifestyle, the process can be expensive – in part due to the amount of equipment that is required to get a truly effective workout. However, there is an alternative to the cost and clutter involved in the myriad of pieces of equipment that traditionally delivered a superior home workout experience – Total Gym. 

Total Gym manufactures stand-alone pieces of equipment that allow for strength training and cardio workouts (and the option to enjoy cross-training) all with a single piece of equipment that is both cost and space-effective (and easy to store). Total Gym has become one of the most trusted names in the business – but purchasing the ideal Total Gym can be challenging due to the number of different models there are on the market.

In order to make that choice a little easier here is a brief rundown of some of the different Total Gym model home workout solutions on the market.

The Total Gym XLS is one of the best choices for those who want exercise options for yoga, pilates, circuit, strength, and cardio. It has a huge amount of workout options and is one of the most comfortable options on the market. IT is lightweight and folds in half – making it ideal for those who have limited space – for instance in a small apartment. However, lightweight does not mean flimsy – the build quality is excellent. A great selection of accessories (such as a wing attachment, a leg pull accessory, a training deck, and a ribbed squat stand) mean that it has something for everyone who wants a full-body workout (80 different exercises are possible). It is also supplied with 5 exercise DVDs. Great value for money when you consider the versatility.

Another option is the Total Gym 1400 Deluxe. This piece of equipment allows for 60 different exercises and the adjustable glide board makes it incredibly easy to change resistance levels. It also comes with a variety of accessories such as a low row bar, a dumbbell set, and a bicep curl bar (to mention a few). This makes it ideal for strength training. It is manufactured using highly durable materials – but it is also lightweight. That quality construction means that it can easily handle users weighing in at up to 350 pounds. At a price point of around $400, it offers exceptional value for money.

The Total Gym 1900 is perfect for those who want to get a full-body workout that will not take more than 20 minutes. As is usual with Total Gym products it is manufactured from the highest quality materials. It also comes with leg and wing attachments so that arms and legs get the full benefit of this great piece of equipment which offers 60 different exercises to keep things interesting. At under 70 pounds in weight, it is easy to move and storage is a breeze due to the fact that it is foldable. Another Total Gym that comes in at around $400 it will not break the bank.

Total Gym offers an enormous variety of different models – and for those in search of value for money equipment that has a small footprint and is easy to store – yet highly effective Total Gym is certainly worth a second look.
