You are misleading people
To be blunt, you are full of it.
Take a look at the posts. There are a number of posts from people that have never used the VigorFit yet seem like sales people for the TT.
Doesn't make much sence to me. This is the only reason I joined the forum.
The VigorFit is extremely stable and offers more than any other gym I have seen. To say the TT offers more is just plain false.
Not only does it offer more resistance but it is incredible smooth and stable.
The rollers are larger than any similar gym and are held tight to the board for a very smooth and quite workout.
The frame allows the VigorFit to fold up extremely small.
And yes -- I am a very big guy and this thing is very stable.
It sounds to me like you're getting paid commission yet you try to turn it around when REAL VigorFit users attempt to state the facts about the gym.
Give me a break.
We Found You out!
Take a look at Bobsk8 's posts.
All of them have been promoting the Total Trainer and attacking the VigorFit. Most of them provide links to make a purchase.
All this yet he has the nerve to state that I am somehow a plant.
This forum was labelled Total Gym vs VigorFit yet somehow you try to taint the forum with FALSE insformation.
We found you out!
I joined this forum because I was sick of reading all of the false baloney you post.
So in an effort to provide real info check out VigorFits Ebay Feedback and despite what our false posting friend would like to say it is mostly for the VigorFit. I checked it out myself.
Don't believe me if you don't want to, but certainly don't believe the baloney being posted on this forum by this guy and a couple of others that seem to pop up to answer questions and provide links like a salesman.
Read and investigate yourself.

You are a fake!!!
Mr. Bobsk8 - you are a fake!
Everyone - go and look at his post record. He has left something like 27 plus posts -- all about the TT. All promoting it.
Not only does he critize the VigorFit but he critisizes every other gym someone mentions in a post and then goes on to state how great the TT is.
All this and you have the nerve to talk about the fact that soemone real - myslef - who owne and loves the VigorFit actually posts about why they like it so much.
More than 27 posts all sounding like a salesman.
You are a real joke and the more you post - the bigger joke you look like.
No one stays on top of a forum like you have - over the lenght of time you have just to promote a gym they purchased.
You, my friend are the sole reason I entered this foum. You and your false information is the sole reason that I have left 5 posts to bring the truth about the VigorFit.
How do I know about the TT -- I've used one. I will not and have not blasted another gym like you have here - even though you have not used it -- even though you are incorrect.
I could go on and on about the safety upgrades that the VigorFit has -- that the TT does not.
I could go on and on about the complaints on various forums about the TT.
I have seen peopel talk about the fact that there is nothing holding the TT board on and it has fallen off on them yet my VigorFit gyms board is held securely with safety brackets.
The list goes on and on.
In addition, when I and others view the VigorFit Ebay feedback we don't see delivery information, but rather tons of people that have used the gym for months, former Total Gym users raving about the gym.
To put it simply you are full of it.
Bottom line: you ask why I come on to leave 5 posts all about VigorFit. Why have you - over a continued period of time left more than 27 posts about TT. In addition, it is completely miraculous that regradless of which gym a poster talks about -- you seem to have a " firend" that used it once.
Give us all a break and go away!
P.S. _ you mention the TT bands. VigorFit posts the test results to their bands. Lab tested 188 lbs of resistance. I've seen reviews of the TT where people complain about the lack of resistance. Where are their posted test results. Again, give me a break. The TT may be an alright gym but to say and keep stating that it has it all over the VigorFit is a bunch of bull!
Your a joke
First, You make comment that the VigorFit has to be imporved yet you have never used it.
I am a user. I have nothing to do with the firm as you would like to imply. Obvously anyone who posts something favorable about the VigorFit offends you!
I have actually used both gyms and the VigorFit is far superior. There simply is no comparison.
If you must know -- the TT was clinky and made a lot of noise. In additon the rollers felt very bumpy. I also didn't like the fact that there was absolutely nothing but gravity holding the board to the frame.
1. I am 6'2" tall. The pad has an ergonomic design and is very comfortable. Review feedback and other forums and you will see many other people stating the same thing.
2. All of your reviews point back to one thing - the tt - you are real joke and transparent.
3. You never opened the VigorFit. It has a really unique and easy to use folding system so while you would like to "play" engineer. You don't know what you are talking about. The VigorFit is very sturdy and in my opinion of commercial quality.
I'm not going to play back and forth with you. Bottom line is that it is obvious who you work for and despite your false implications and false posts - people will see right through you.
My reviews are reall and genuine. In fact, if people look everyone that has actually used the VigorFit posts fabulous things about it.
Best of luck.
To anyone trying to decide -- The VigorFit has my vote. You can not go wrong. It is comfortable, sturdy and offers everything you will ever need.
And by the way...
The VigorFit offers a lifetime warranty on 100% of all parts of the gym. That says it all.
Mr. TT -- your firm only offers a life warranty on 3 lousy parts of the gym.
Give me a break.
Give other REAL PEOPLE a chance on this forum and stop mucking it up with your lies!
Since it is obvious that you are the plant and trying to throw attention from yourself I am not going to address your baloney any more. People will see right though you.
Fact - you have written more than 20 posts about a gym that you have never used. You are a fake.
You are right about only one thing consumers should compare for themselves and while comparing ask yourself these questions:
* What is holding the board to the frame? What, besides gravity holds your TT?
* What does the part that hold the entire board up when you raise incline levels look like - what is it made of? The VigorFit uses steel. Does the TT?.
* Look at the pulley system -- The VigorFit uses a sealed pulley system. Look at both pulleys very closely.
* How do you adjust the ropes when needed?
* compare the rollers
and then when you're done compare the warranties.
I know I did and I made the right decision.
Again - VigorFit is for me.
Lets let other decide so that you can stop blowing your hot air.
Again, you seem to have an awful lot of opinions for someone that has never used the gym. I for one have!
Hi, I'm new to this site. Anyways I like to get a gym set similar to total gym like the vigorfit and total trainer. I think the max I could spent is $400 or maybe more, indeed I am a poor college student. I am 5'7'' and I weigh 127lb if that makes any difference. The main reason to use the set would be to increase flexibilty, strength, and tone for my dancing (poppin). I think in the long run, I want to eventually learn to bbboy (breakdance). The real question is I don't know what to get between VF and TT. Please leave any comments plz!
You have got to be kidding. Haven't you read this thread? If you want to save some dough, take a look at this one. I own it and it is just fine. May not have all the bells and whistles of the $400 ones, but I can do almost every exercise that they can do. My wife and I use it daily. It is very sturdy, quiet,
Sports Authority - Exercise/Fitness: Exercise Equipment: Home Gyms: Weider Total Body Works 5000
yeah, ive heard about that. But what i heard it had too many problems and its cheaply made
I don't know where you heard that. If you read epinions, there is nothing but good remarks about them.
Here is the link:
Compare Prices and Read Reviews on Weider PS WDR Total Body Works 5000 at Epinions.com
An old saying "you get what you pay for". The Weider stuff I've seen is cheaply built. I bought a set of Weider dumbbell bars years ago and the chrome plating was so bad it was flaking off the day I got them. The sharp flakes would slice into my hands when I used them. Just looking at the pictures tells me it's not built to last. At first it might be solid, but give it a year or two of hard regular use and you'll see. Plus there is no way to slap a few weight plates on it to really up the resistance. Joe Weider should be ashamed of himself for all the kids he's ripped off with the cheap/inferior junk he pushes.

Another question came up to me. Hmm, if the vigorfit, total gym, etc. only allows you to use 70% and less of your body weight, isnt that bad? So I weigh 127lb and I can only use 88.0lb. It wouldn't be good for chest press or and leg exercises? I just dont really get the whole mechanism of resistence.
Thanks for the reponese so far.
And yes, I have reserached, but still does really make sense.
The Vigorfit and some of the Total Trainer models have resistance bands, plus they have a bar to throw on weight plates to up the resistance even more. But you'll have to buy the weight plates seperately, you can get them pretty cheap.

Also on amazon, some guy is selling the pro version for $300<<good deal. Since im 5'7'' Im not sure the pro is for me since its bigger and max height for that is 6.7'' compare to the TT pilate system 6'2''
