Read Paula’s story of success and find out how she incorporates Total Gym into her life.
“I’ve been using my Total Gym for 13 years and it’s my absolute favorite form of exercise. I enjoy it so much and it works! I used to work out on a Nordic Track and a stationary bike, but everything I was doing was aerobic exercise. At that time I thought, “working out is working out”— it did not matter what you did. But I was not doing any strength training and I was not seeing the results I wanted even though I was using them long- term on a regular basis.
My friend had a Total Gym and said she really saw a difference, so I bought one. I started out using it 4 – 5 times a week and in a short time I could see the results! Now I just do it 1-2 times a week, but I am able to maintain a fit physique and it’s fun!
Even after horrible injuries stemming from an assault three years ago left me with joint issues and ongoing pain from injuries, I can still get on my Total Gym and workout because of how it works; the mechanics of it. I can’t run because it’s too jarring on my injuries, but the Total Gym has helped me. I have to keep a tight core in order to be in less pain and working out on the Total Gym allows me to do just that. The Total Gym is so good at helping me focus on my core because every move you do on it requires you to keep your core engaged.
Raising two kids and running a business, it just wasn’t possible for me to get to a gym – I wanted to spend time with my family when I wasn’t working. Having the Total Gym has allowed me to do that and still stay in shape. I put on some Backstreet Boys, hop on my Total Gym and get my ‘40-minutes of me time’ and I have a ball while I’m doing it!
My husband and son have even used the Total Gym after they saw the results I was getting. In fact, my son got many comments about his ‘six-pack’ abs when he was using the Total Gym and my husband often gets comments about how fit he is. It has truly made a difference for all of us.
I turned 50 this year and just the other day I overheard a woman talking about how the ‘belly roll’ just comes with being over 50 and I wanted to say ‘No it does not! Not with Total Gym!’
Basically, I love my Total Gym!”
