Product Features

The Total Gym Elite features standard equipment offered with all of the Total Body home gyms, including, dip bars, exercise mat, exercise DVD, nutritional guide and instructional manual. The machine does not use free weights or resistance bands, simply the weight of the user. Resistance levels range from 4% of the user’s body weight to 60%.

The maximum weight of the Total Gym Elite is 275 lbs. What we found concerning is although the Total Gym Elite offers guidance; the exercises could present a challenge to the user who is not physically fit. Moving the Total Gym Elite to the highest incline level presents an issue when the user enters of exits the equipment.

The space saving design of the Total Gym Elite allows users to position the machine in small spaces after use. It measures 10 inches high when folded and spans 51 inches. Unfolded the Total Gym Elite measures 44 inches long, with a height of 94 inches. The majority of the Total Gym Elite ships pre-assembled. The only assembly required is the accessories.

The Total Gym Elite is not available on the official website, only on It retails for $325 and is available with a two year warranty. The price is cheap compared to latter models of the Total Gym.
