  • Total Gym Knock-off and rip-off

    Dec 30, 2013 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Obviously the low price is the incentive that they use to lure in potential customers
    Cons: Horrible customer service and very unprofessional ownership

    Summary: Obviously this is a Johnny come lately contraption that seeks to copy the hard work and technological innovation of a real entrepreneur through what is termed reverse engineering. What is most troubling about the company that sells this product is their ... read more

    can use for pilates & stength
    Cons: postage (>$900)
    rollers not smooth like Stamina reformers
    Plastic fittings on shock cords look like won't last

    Summary: I live in Australia. I had a Stamina aero pilates reformer (xp 610) but found the slide board was too short for me (90cm total, 75cm to shoulder pads). Looked at total gym, vigorfit, bayou total trainer, Weider Total Body Works as suitable replacement ... read more

    Pros: Well designed, well built, easy to use, and it gives a great workout.
    Cons: Easier set up procedure if parts had been color coded in the User Guide.

    Summary: As soon as I opened the box and saw its construction, I was impressed. I was more impressed as I began assembling it and seeing how well the parts fit, how clean the welds are, and how nice the finish is. Wow! This is one stout piece of equipment! ... read more

    Pros: Good quality components
    Cons: Horrible design and overall implementation of what it's supposed to be intended for

    Summary: I can take a long hard lesson to heart from buying the VigorFit, NEVER buy something off the internet without first physically trying it out in real life first..! At first sight, this machine seems to be of good quality. Thick gauge metal, large seat ... read more

  • Vigorfit vs. Total Gym by owner of both

    May 16, 2008 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Great warranty, great construction, beats paying to work out in a smelly gym.
    Cons: Board has a bit of drag, doesn't glide very smoothly. Needs a better pull-up bar.

    Summary: This is a comparison between the two by an owner of both machines. 1. Unpacking: TG was a breeze. Vigorfit was tedious to get all of the plastic off especially the glideboard which was wrapped in plastic and then attached to the rails. Glad that they ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Does give a decent workout.
    Cons: Practically have to disassemble machine to fold and put away.

    Summary: I will agree that this machine provides a decent workout and good resistance. It did however take me almost an hour to put together and only then did I discover that to 'easily' fold this machine I had to basically take the entire apparatus apart. ... read more

    Cons: Can't get a turn on the gym. My family fights over who uses it next.

    Pros: Sturdy, Versatile, Safe, Great Resistance.
    Cons: I like the bike attachment but it could use pedal straps.

    Summary: Re: VigorFit I have never wrote a review before nor had the desire to do so but I feel compelled so this is my first. I was completely skeptical before purchasing the Vigorfit. I did my homework. I compared item for item and spec by spec with the ... read more

    Cons: Quality and versatility compared to the Total Trainer DLX III.

    Summary: I owned the VIGORFIT for 2-3 months last year.  It's OK.  Just NOTHING compared to my new TOTAL TRAINER DLX III!!  Everything on the Total Trainer, including the finish (chrome instead of scratchable powder-coat), speaks of well thought ... read more

    Pros: Low price, fast delivery, sturdy build, comes with everything you need.
    Cons: Assembly manual pictures aren't good.  If you're not very handy, assembly could be challenging.

    Summary: I received my new Vigorfit Home Gym yesterday.  Delivery was fast. It took about an hour to put it together, but it wasn't hard to do. The main parts are already assembled.  I haven't done a complete workout, but I tried a little of everything ... read more

    Pros: The quality appears to be good.
    Cons: It is lacking in some major areas of importance to me.

    Summary: I recently purchased the VigorFit Home Gym. I am not satisfied with the product in 2 areas for certain. The footholder doesn't hold my feet at all. If you have really big feet it might work but for a ladies foot it is much too large. Also, the upper ... read more

    Dec 20, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Good but for professionals

    Pros: Excellent quality. More exercises that I'll ever need. Tons of built in resistance. Very sturdy.
    Cons: Power bands could be color coded.

    Summary: VigorFit is great. My brother has the expensive Total Gym. I think he paid $1600 or more for it. When he saw my VigorFit he got sick. He could not believe all of the features and upgrades that are on my VigorFit and I paid a fraction of what he paid. ... read more
