Question About Sensible Gym

HBKidDecember 23, 2001

I used to own a PowerMaster Ultra Gym that I really liked and used quite often. However, I think that the actual machine that I had was kind of a lemon because eventually metal pieces inside broke and it kind of fell apart. It never felt too sturdy, but I don't think it was a problem with the Ultra Gym, just the particular one that I had.

Anyway, the thing that I hated most about it was that in order to adjust the incline, you had to screw in the the pin. After using it for only a few weeks, it became very difficult to get it to screw in, and was very frustrating. I've started looking for a replacement in the $100-200 range, and I'm zeroing in on the Sensible Gym or the Total Gym in stores (1500, I think). My question for Sensible Gym owners is whether the incline adjustment is a screw in piece or is it a pin you just easily slide in like the Total Gyms?

Thanks in advance.

The Sensible Gym has a spring loaded pin that adjusts the height. Very easy to use. I have had the machine now for 7 months. I love it. It is a very sturdy machine and should last quite a while.
