I'm 36. I've been a member of a gym for 22 years. I pay 40 pounds a month. Thats over £10,500 I've spent.
I love working out, feeling fit/pumped/ripped/toned. I don't really like smelly changing rooms, especially in wet winters.
I bought the Ztrainer for my home gym. I have cancelled my gym membership. I no longer need it.
To clarify: as a new father i no longer get to the gym 4 times a week. I started building a home gym in my basement 2 years ago - bench, squat rack, free weights, mats etc. Simple stuff.
I've now added the Ztrainer - suspended to a hook in my (concrete) ceiling. Its replaced 90% of my weight work. Now I do bodyweight stuff with the XT system. Its awesome. And controlled. And secure. And i can do 10 minutes or an hour - and feel the benefits immediately. And see them too.
Note: I also took it on holiday with me - barcelona - hooked it to goalposts and volleyball posts in play areas/beach. Worked perfectly. Took it to the park - hooked it to a tree. Got told to take it down (botanical garden you see).
I've used it hooked to doors - and although doing chest flys and pushups isnt quite as effective as when you have it hooked to directly above your head - its still better than using a bench.
If you're looking to get TONED, and generally just feel toned (like you own your body). This could be your best investment ever. (and if you want to add muscle - use this - and eat right. Sixpacks are made in the kitchen)
Now, what to spend that extra £500 a year on?.......
