The beginner workout is designed to increase your strength, energy, and stamina. The 19-minute bonus is only to be used on days you simply do not have the time to fit in a full workout. The intermediate is more challenging and increases in intensity to build muscle for burning fat. The advanced program has separate upper and lower body workouts that are meant to give you that ripped body.

The official website is selling it for $599.70 with a payment plan of 6 payments at $99.95 plus free shipping and handling. Let me stop you right there! QVC is selling the exact same package for $299.80 with a payment plan of 5 payments at $59.96. There is a $29.97 shipping fee with QVC.
What I really like, other than how it works my entire body all at the same time, is that it folds up and can be put under my bed or set into a corner. That is important to me because I have a small house. I had to get rid of my treadmill because it just took up too much room. I also love that there is no set-up involved. It is ready right from the box. That is easy, even for me!
There is a lifetime warranty on the frame and 24-month warranty on parts. I have to say this is an awesome machine! I think it can truly change your life. It is perfect for the person that can’t make it to the gym or simply is too embarrassed to go. This machine provides real results fast. Bring the gym home to completely transform your body and get into the best shape of your life!
