What We Love About the Total Gym Force Home Gym:total-gym-force-home-gym-fitness-machine

Construction & Quality

When buying a bodyweight resistance home gym, your main priority should be to find a well made, quality machine. The Total Gym FORCE Home Gym is just that. Total Gym is probably the most well known manufacturer for home gyms in this style. That comes with over 40 years of experience. The Total Gym Force Home Gym has a strong, stabile frame design that will keep you balanced and secure in any position. It also has a 350 lb weight limit, which is more than you’ll find in any other home gym at this price point, regardless of the resistance system. When you buy the Total Gym FORCE Home Gym, you’re getting a piece of exercise equipment for life.

Extras

Another really nice perk with the Total Gym FORCE Home Gym is all of the extras you get. This gym is provides over 60 different exercise options and all of the accessories you need to do them. With your purchase you get the AbCrunch attachment, wing attachments, leg pull, dip bars, press up bars, squat stand and a large stability mat. If you’re unsure how to do these exercises or how to develop a routine, Total Gym also provides material like the Intermediate Program DVD, Total Body Workout DVD and Total Gym Exercise Flip Chart. As a final bonus, you get a complete nutritional program and meal plan to help you meet your fitness goals.

Other Considerations:

Resistance

The Total Gym Force Home Gym is a really good bodyweight home gym. If you are specifically looking for a home gym with this resistance system, then you can’t go wrong. However, if you’re looking for your best option in this price range, then there may be some better choices. The bodyweight resistance system isn’t the best for building strength. Bodyweight systems are more or less used for burning calories and therefore reducing fat and adding definition. There are a lot of weight stack home gyms in this price range that can help build strength as well as burn calories and add definition. If you’d like to research your options a little closer, take a look at our reviews of the Gold’s Gym XRS 50 or the Weider Home Gym.

Final Word on the Total Gym FORCE Home Gym:

The Total Gym FORCE Home Gym is an excellent choice for someone looking for a bodyweight home gym. It comes from a reputable manufacturer in the fitness industry and is very well made. It also comes with tons of exercise options and all of the accessories that you’ll need to do them. We don’t really see any big drawbacks on this home gym; only that you may want to research different resistance system home gyms in this price range, because there may be a better option for what you’re trying to accomplish.
