  1. Thinking of buying the total flex, can you add extra bands and hook them all at once along with the original ones like four or five or even six at a time for heavier work outs do the bands in the performance package work for all exercises or just the leg raises

  2. I am very interested in this machine and I’m wondering: if you don’t add the leg extension or head rest to your cart, does this really limit the number of exercises you can do? I can only afford the Total Flex itself at the moment and I don’t want to wait to start working out. Can you still work out your legs without the extension? Is it extremely uncomfortable without the headrest? Are these things I could buy later when I have more money? I’d really appreciate anyone’s advice=)

    • You can still do most of the exercises but I would recommend having them. Specially the leg one, really good for the muscles of the top in your leg.

  3. I am asking for help for my husband. He has many health issues. We are trying hard for him to loose weight. We have tried so many times to loose weight and he will loose 50 lbs. then put it back on. I feel it is so important to his health to loose the weight. He is disabled so our income is very modest. He is a great husband of 31 years, wonderful dad and now grand dad. We need help please. I watched the advertisement of this gym. I believe it would help him to get the exercise that would help him feel a little better. I am praying for help for him!

    • It is a good machine. I am extremely obese and this is the only exercise I have just loved. Tell him to do it in front of the TV with the DVD, it passes so fast and in 15 mint you have done a very good session of exercise. It is worth it.

    I just had a very pleasant surprise. I just received a call from Thane Direct apologizing for the lack of customer service. Seems my e-mails were initially sent (how?) to a new French Canadian rep, who is now under going some more customer service training. No explanation why the founder of Thane, Denise DuBerry, ignored me but that’s understandable as she’s in California and the rep who called me was in Toronto. Denise should change her last name to “Don’t Berry”.

    Regarding the smell: The only thing we could think of was it needs a good time to air out. I couldn’t wait that long so that’s why I took it apart and washed it.

    So I will be getting 2 red resistance bands free of charge. The Rep offered 2 extra packs of the gray, black and reds as well but that wasn’t necessary. No sense in being greedy. That was very nice of her to do so.The Rep was very pleasant.

    I suggested that the head rest extension be lengthened by 6 inches. If they do that the Total Flex would be good for 6 footers. I also suggested they add a section on their website to place parts orders for extra bands etc. If you used three reds on each side, you’d be in really good shape. I asked if the machine could indeed take 3 reds on each side and the answer was yes.

    So 2 thumbs up for the Toronto Thane Direct Rep.

    As PJ Katy would say “Case Closed”.

    • After 3 months, you are now satisfied. BUT, are you getting the results that were advertised? I’m not looking for the weight loss but the muscle that you have gained. AND would you refer it to others who do free weights now and again? Thank you

  5. Regarding the Total-flex and Thane Direct: No response to my e-mails so I sent them one more asking for compensation in the form of 2 packs of resistance bands. One band wasn’t on a pulley (not visible because of protective cover) so it is now frayed/damaged. I took the cover off because the one side sounded different than the other. That’s when I found the band was off the pulley. Also the machine had a noxious toxic smell so I needed to remove the upholstery and wash it.

  6. I would not recommend this product unless:

    1) You are under 5′ 9″

    2) Have a high tolerance for plastic/rubber odors.

    3) You are in poor shape or just want to keep toned. You won’t get like the Hulk using this machine. I have had this machine less than a month and I’m already using all six resistance bands for the bench press.

    4) You have to call their toll free number to order more resistance bands. When I called it at 10 a.m. est, a message said they were closed. Plus you can’t order just 2 red bands. You need to buy a pack. I don’t know what’s in a pack because they didn’t give me that information when they responded to my e-mail asking why they didn’t answer the phone.

    Please see my blog for details of my experience with the machine and the company.
