Great piece of equipment, *especially* for the price. Took about 30 minutes to put together and has been used daily for the past few months with no problems.
Great quality for a good price

This is a well made machine. I am 6'5" and 235lbs and this unit is very solid and stable. The platform glides very quietly. The pulleys are smooth and I get full range of motion on all exercises. The color is black with red accent stripes not tan. Assembly was easy (three bolts), and it breaks down easily for storage. It is approx 60" tall and 14" deep with the squat platform removed (two pins). I would suggest tightening all the bolts on the unit just to be sure they are all snug. This is more than likely the reason why some have said it is not stable. This item arrived in perfect condition and very quickly. Many have complained there is not workout chart but a simple Internet search will give you everything you need to put together a great routine. Just google "Total Gym workouts" and click video or images. You can do just about any exercise that the more expensive Total gym does (depending on attachments) or you can take pictures of the box which shows just about all the exercises you will need. You can also use the pull up bar as a inverted shoulder press attachment by moving it to the squat platform spot. I'm 52 years old and don't foresee outgrowing this equipments limits, If I do need more resistance mission accomplished. Time will determine the durability of this machine, but based on my first impressions, it is well worth the investment. At this price you get a very well made machine for a very reasonable price. Update: the cables were too short for some exercises due to my long arms. I bought two 6 inch lengths of chain and two more clips to extend the cable length and problem solved 5.00 at local hardware store. I can now do full extension shoulder press without bottoming out at the top of platform.
An effective and very reasonably priced piece of equipment

First of all, for those of you wondering how this differs from the older model, the "Total Body Works 5000," it really doesn't. The colors are different, and the shape of the glide-board is slightly different, but other than that, it's the same thing. So if you already own the Total Body Works 5000, and you're trying to decide whether or not to "upgrade" to the Ultimate Body Works, I'd say don't bother, since it's really not an upgrade at all. It does the exact same thing, there are no new attachments or anything other added functionality.
The name describes it perfectly

Full disclosure: I was not able to buy this from Amazon as I didn't have the cash to spare, so had to buy it from another retailer where I have credit; this same review is at the other retailer's site, should they approve it.

I have such great things to write about this. I had been looking at this Weider Ultimate Gym Works for over a year. Kept debating on purchasing it. Procrastination is probably a better word for it... I was alwasy into fitness but as time went on the 'fitness mentality' sort of left me (apart from walking at the park which walking is great as well). I needed more though. I wanted the toning and stretching that I felt I could get with this machine. Well, on my birthday this year I broke down and finally got it. Everyone, this machine is a must. If you are a beginner or more advanced you WILL get something out of this machine and that is RESULTS. I kept the top of box as it lists with photos many of the exercises that you can do.
A whole lot of machine for so little dollars!

I cannot believe what a great product this is for it's price. I've been using it since I got it out of the box and can't get enough of it. I also purchased the Total Gym exercise chart and paid $20 to get it laminated at Kinkos.... So worth it! The two machines are practically the same so it translates perfectly. It's fun, easy to use, and it really works. I'm actually sore and showing results in only one week of use. I can't wait to see the long term results.
Overall I really like the Weider Ultimate Body Works and I am very glad I found it when I became interested in Total Gym... This is a huge savings over the Total Gym and you basically do the same workouts.... Can use Total Gym DVDs Youtube, etc, Total Gym poster, etc no problem.
