Total Gym 1500 is a one piece fitness machine that can be folded and stored easily. The Total Gym 1500 is no longer featured on the company website since it has been replaced with two newer models. Websites that still carry this model state that it strengthens and tones almost all muscles in the body. Websites also mention that this machine has the capability of giving your entire body a “gym-quality” workout in your own home.

There is not much information other than marketing information available on sites that sell the product. On some independent websites that rate exercise equipment, there are reviews. Most reviews have positive things to say about the toning abilities of the Total Gym 1500 but there is no scientific evidence or research support the claims made in testimonials on independent websites.


This product has no ingredients.

Product Features

Total Gym 1500 has over 60 different exercise possibilities. Websites state the Total Gym 1500 works by pitting your body against gravity. When using the machine, users stabilize one part of their body and lift the other. This method uses gravity as resistance and reduces joint damaging impact.

The machine is made out of steel. It folds up after use so that it can be stored in smaller spaces. Purchase includes a DVD and exercise book as well as a one year guarantee.

You might remember the Total Gym 1500 because of its commercials that featured Chuck Norris and Christy Brinkley. Infomercials for this product used to run night and day on cable channels for about 5 years.

  • The Total Gym 1500 claims to work out every muscle group in your entire body.
  • This product used to be heavily endorsed by celebrities known for their fitness.


  • At the time of this review, the Total Gym 1500 has been discontinued.
  • Two newer products are offered as replacements.
  • Reviews around the Internet are mixed.
  • As will all fitness equipment, you must use it regularly to get any results.


The Total Gym 1500 is a lot like many other exercise machines that claim to give your whole body an effective workout in just a few hours each week. The biggest problem with most exercise machines is that you have to actually use them. Many people will order these machines, use them for a couple of weeks, not see dramatic results and put them in the garage or give them away.

Using a Total Gym 1500 could be a very useful part of your home exercise regime if you could set a schedule to use it and not deviate from that schedule. In addition to any exercise machine, you may want to include a thermogenic weight loss supplement to help burn fat all day and night.

    If you get a Total Gym (I have a 1500 that I bought in 2002), good luck finding repair parts when it needs them. You might as well plan to throw it away.



    I also have the 1500 model, you can find any of the repair parts on Ebay.
