    VigorFit routine

    I just got the VigorFit, and so far so good. I'm looking to make a good even workout routine for all the major muscles. Could someone help me out here?

    Edit: I'm thinking about doing full upper body one day, and full lower body the next day..and so on.

    VigorFit Resistance

    I am interested also in the VigorFit and was wondering if the resistance bands truly offer enough resistance. also been reading other reviews and was concerned about the pullies location and interfearing withthe work out. Any feedback wouldbe great.

    I'll have to get back to you on the resistance bands. I've only used them once to test them out because I don't need them for my workout. A few weights are enough for me. The only way I'd see the need for the resistance bands is if you're very strong or you're doing two-legged squats. As for the pulley location I don't see a problem. The bands do provide a pretty good amount of resistance though. I think I can safely say that I won't grow out of this thing. But this is only a couple days worth of an opinion.. I'll have to use it more and get back to you.

    Edit: After trying to use the leg cuffs, I realized they are actually a big pain in the ass to use, and are very uncomfortable. This is a disappointment because that seems to be the only way to work your hamstrings. It also doesn't provide enough resistance with the way it's set up.

    VigorFit Use vs Total trainer cost

    Doe anyone have actual knowledge of the VigorFit and the use of the bands. I am trying to decide between the Vigorfit and total trainer. The total trainer is a littler cheeper " Total Trainer plus Pilates with 19 LEVELS" on ebay can get with best offer and get for about 349.00 vs Vigorfit 379.00. The main item that I am thinking about is the added resistance of the resistance bands on the Vigorfit. But if the difference is not so great does it make sence to go with Total trainer and save some money

    Vigorfit Vs Total Trainer

    I have owned both the Vigorfit and Total Trainer Ultimate Pilates. They are bothy great machines, but I actually prefer the Total Trainer Ultimate Pilates. It is much easier to fold and store if space is an issue, which it is with me. Also, even if you don't think you'll use the pilates routines on the machine, don't knock it till you try it. It is a great compliment to weight/resistance training activities. I do both. Actually, if anyone is interested, I am probably going to sell my Total Trainer since I have three (soon to be four) small children under the age of six and I don't have anywhere to set this up away from where the kids play. I would only be asking about $225 plus shipping so if you're interested you can reach me at designchick67 at hotmail dot com. Hope this helps.
