This product is great if you want some workout equipment and don't have a lot of space for several different machines. You can work out all different areas of your body and it uses your own body weight as your weights. It is kind of a pain to move the different parts to work out different areas but once you get used to doing it, it gets easier as you go along. It comes with a book that shows different exercises. It is perfect if you don't have a gym nearby and want a cheap piece of equipment to keep you in shape. Although, I have to admit that my husband does not use this machine enough as he needs more motivation and needs to go to a gym to workout. Otherwise, if you have the motivation, all you need is this machine and maybe a treadmill and you would be set.
