Total Gym is a fitness equipment company serving the world for more than 30 years. The company features innovative products designed to assist users achieve their weight loss and fitness goals. The lure of Total Gym is the product line. The low-impact nature of the Total Gym allows users of all fitness levels the opportunity to exercise without the need of free weights. As the company grew, so did the need to add different exercises.

The Total Gym DVD evolved from exercise charts to the collection of today. The DVD’s feature exercises designed to work the entire body as well as target train specific body parts. The total body DVD’s are great, but we know that a dieter cannot spot reduce any part of their body. We also found several DVD’s were less than 20 minutes. Fitness experts agree that a minimum of 20 minutes of exercise is necessary in order to maximize weight loss.

The Total Gym DVD are found on the official website with prices ranging from $26 to $250.

  • Box set and individual exercise DVD’s.


  • Not every DVD is designed to offer a complete body workout.
  • The time on select DVD’s is not recommended in achieving maximum results.
  • Expensive.
  • Requires Total Gym purchase.
  • Repetitive.


When exercising, especially on an unfamiliar machine, DVD’s assist in the initial transition. They provide detailed instruction in order to allow proper form and avoid confusion. The Total Gym DVD collection is a combination of instructional videos ranging from exercise for the beginner to the most elite athlete. Several DVD’s include accessories for the Total Gym.

We found several of the Total Gym DVD’s repetitive, considering the majority of Total Gyms sold come with instructional DVD’s. The price is a concern as well. Single DVD’s start at $26, with complete sets costing in excess of $250. We could not find the Total Gym DVD a value for the cost conscience dieter, especially when instructional guides are provided upon purchase. Another key component missing is a comprehensive diet plan. An exercise plan will not work without proper diet and the correct amount of supplementation.
