My friend bought one of these a couple years ago and raved about it all the time. She talked about how it was changing her body, and really, she looked incredible after just using it for a few weeks.
Another friend of ours was selling her power gym for a fraction of the cost I was finding them anywhere else, so I purchased hers. (Why was she selling it? I was a bit concerned, but she an avid cyclist who rides hundreds of miles a week. She didn’t need more exercise!)
This thing is incredible! Usually I would by go on and on about an “as seen on TV” type product. This little piece of machinery is legit.
The Power Gym comes with DVD instructions but YouTube really did it justice.
Check out these videos I found on YouTube:
The first is “Pilates for Her.”
Next is this guy Kevin showing the host of the episode some workouts that can be done with the Power Gym.
This video is of a guy named Steve who’s apparently gotten some world records for “world’s fittest person” doing some ab work on the Pilates Power Gym.
Here are some examples of some other exercises that can be done.
And if you want to work your legs, here is another video for examples of that.
You can search YouTube all day for examples of workouts to do with the Pilates Power Gym.
I talked the other day about how I used to be fit. I’m back in the game. My plan right now is cardio from P90x, leg stuff with the Power Gym, and running. I’m limited with upper body stuff right now because of my wrist injury (torn TFCC) and have to get surgery. Not looking forward to that. Cardio will have to do for now.
So far I’m on day 2 of using the Power Gym. Yesterday can’t really count as a workout, it was me doing exercises, checking out the gym, and keeping my infant from using it a a jungle gym! It was easy enough to work ad made me sweat.
It’s tough getting older! Diet and exercise are so important. As we age our metabolism changes with our body chemistry. We must adapt our lifestyle and workouts to deal with these changes. Join me on this journey. I need all the support I can get!
