Amazing, Love It !!!!!
from Hamilton, On
I too bought this machine. There is just too much one can say about it? It is really amazing. Exercising without pain, wow.!! I also bought the stand to go with it but I have not used it yet? I am new to the world of Pilates so thought I would start on the floor. This machine comes assembled with very little to do and what you have to do is so very easy. It is a very sturdy machine. Love the wide board. Glides so easily and is very quiet. The rebounder is just top notch and amazing to use and boy does it give you a work out. So does the angled foot bar. Love the furry straps. Love it all.!!! I feel like I stand taller. It sure relieves stress, just pop onto your machine and away you go. I have a daughter with an acquired brain injury. She was once a jogger, runner but no longer. But when she gets on this machine with the rebounder ,she feels like she is running again , this is a real blessing to watch. She loves it. I also bought the neck support pillow, really nice to have plus the other Pull Up Bar Kit. Still have to get the Box and Pole Kit. There is just so much to love about this machine. I just can not get over how one can exercise and not have to suffer with pain on this machine. I LOVE when Marjolein comes to tsc.ca. She is amazing to watch and listen to. Her body is amazing. I really believe this machine and all that it has to offer is worth every penny spent on it. Wish I knew about Pilates long ago but not to worry about that any more as I do now !!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had lower back problems for the last several years. This machine allows me to exercise...sometimes just a 5 minute stretch...without the pain or fear of pain. It is so easy to use and easy to adjust. The rebounder is an added bonus. I feel stronger and look forward to using it. That in itself is an accomplishment.

I'm lazy, but I love using this machine!
Just as the other reviewers have stated, the machine came basically assembled and what needed assembling was so simple and fast. I watched the videos before using the machine to see what was going to be expected of me, lol. The videos are great! Simple to follow and they don't go so fast that you can't follow along with them. I am the laziest person when it comes to exercising and I can come up with a million excuses every day not to exercise, but after owning this machine for a month now, I still look forward to going home and working out on it. The time goes by SO fast! I thought I had worked out for about 20 minutes yesterday, but my daughter informed me I was on it for 45 minutes! I feel better and can feel the results in almost every unused muscle I have, but not to the point where I hurt too much to continue. It's just a little work out pain in a good way, lol. It's a gentle work out. I wish The Shopping Channel would offer some of the other videos to purchase as an add on, and I'm really, really hoping they get more stock in on the pillows, as I think this would make my work out even more comfortable. I highly recommend this machine for everyone, but especially for those that find it hard to get motivated into working out. It's simple and fun.

Too easy to be true
By the slug
from Halifax, NS
Results with no pain?! Yes!I have long been loathe to buy any exercise machine that would just end up being an expensive clothes hanger but, at an astonishing 234 lbs, leading a sedentary life and beginning to realize significant limitations, I had to do something. Getting down onto the machine was the biggest challenge but generally I found the exercise fairly easy - any slight feelings of muscle strain disappeared the next day rather than stiffening as typically occurs. I thought the exercise was so insignificant that it would have no effect but it has quickly started to flatten my tummy that, despite a 12 lb weight loss from dieting, hadn't budged and now I have also lost another 6 lbs. Yes - a flatter stomach and 6 lbs more weight loss in just 3 weeks. Still along way to go but this is definitely a program I can live with.

I use it at least five times a week.I feel better, have more energy and most of all it is easy on the body, no pounding on the joints.It has improved my sciatica so much that I have a better nights rest,thankyou TSC.I have recommended this machine to several people and have shown interest, hope you bring it back soon.

By Happy to exercise
from Leaskdale, Ontario
It looked daunting when I took it out of the box but with the well written instructions it was easy to assemble (in reality it is almost completely assembled when you receive it). I have been using it for a week and now look forward to my exercise sessions. The written exercise sheet clearly outlines the different moves, shows you how to get a full body work out and feel 'properly supported' while exercising. Glad the 'rebounder' was also included when I purchased and would also recommend the use of the head and neck support pillow.
A Real Keeper
from East Garafraxa
After several recommendations from a friend at work, I finally broke down and bought the Stamina AeroPilates Showstopper. I was hesitant because I figured it would be like every exercise machine or workout DVD I bought in years gone by - - okay at first, but rarely saw any results and then it becomes boring. First of all, I was able to put the machine together myself (yeah for me!). I watched both of the DVD's before starting the exercises to get an idea of what they are all about. I did the first DVD the whole way through and the next day, I could literally "feel it". I thought I had strong abs, but I guess I was wrong. The first DVD is easy to follow and gives you time to change the cords. I will admit I can't do some of the exercises (the "Skater") that well, but I figure that will just take time. I haven't used the rebounder yet, but will get to that. I have to say, I have never been so excited about working out now and I actually go home and look forward to going on the machine. I am actually seeing some results in the short time I have been using the Stamina AeroPilates with respect to posture and physique. I only wish I had taken my friend's advice a few years ago, but I am hooked now.

I bought this expecting to return it because I didn't think I'd like it.I was so wrong. I love it! The low or no impact work out is great. I wake up feeling great, I have more energy and am more flexible.

from DEEP RIVER
Did not take long to set up but it was frustrating to find a bolt was missing. The "tension" cords are amazingly easy to use and stay out of the way. For a machine of this caliber it would be more appropriate to include more than the 2 basic DVDs. In using the equipment I was pleasantly surprised to realize that while using the rebounder, although you are lying down, your stomach muscles are engaged. Even after only a few days, this is my favourite activity on this equipment. I have not done pilates before and it will take me a while to get comfortable with the more traditional moves but I find the low impact pace very relaxing. Not my normal experience with exercise. The wide bed and padding provide good support, I highly recommend this equipment to others.

I bought this machine specially for my back. Had spinal operation in Oct/2013 and the surgery was a big one I had bought this machine to help me get back one my feet. This BEST money spent.
