The Total Gym 1000, the one with Chuck Norris as the spokesman, offers some excellent features for a piece of home exercise equipment. This fitness center, from Fitness Quest(r) offers a number of different models ranging in price from one hundred fifty dollars to one thousand five hundred dollars. For the average user, though, a basic model will fit your needs. Reviews indicate that you will not be getting more for your money if you pay for one of the higher end models.
The Total Gym 100 is meant for overall fitness, and will not build the rippling muscles you see on the late night television commercials in just a few weeks of use. It does help you strengthen and tone every major muscle group, and provides good stability for your workouts. For the most part, this series of equipment requires little or no assembly, which is great for someone who wants a quick workout out of the box. Moreover, the Total Gym 1000 has been around since the early nineties, which would indicate some level of customer satisfaction with the product.
