Bought my first Soloflex in the late 80's.
And I sold it. Bouts a used one a year ago. And last summer I found a mint Rockit!
I have a small place and the Rockit is in the living room. I will never give up that machine.
I just ordered replacement parts. A red stopper, and a bolt the previous owner never used.
And lost it. I also ordered new grip tape for my Soloflex and Shock Rings.
They are awesome! I also mix them with the weight straps.
I can get a great muscle building pump with these machines.
Commited Soloflex user.
And your customer service when I called to order was excellent!
I would even like to treat myself to a brand new Soloflex.
Ahhhh, to be young again. 1985. Dreaming of a body that was beyond my genetics. But, I dreamed anyway. Did I ever get the body of my dreams? No. Instead I got stronger, leaner, more energetic. My body transformed itself into the best that *I* could be. My dreams? They were just dreams. The great body that stared back at me in the mirror? That was reality.
Now....I am in my 50's. Still strong. Still energetic. My weight is the same as it was back in 1985.
My Soloflex? Still going strong. Best machine out there. Period.
I'm Back. 53 now and loving my soloflex. I'm 240lbs now and the greatest benefit of my soloflex is hands down, Attitude. Loving life again, I'm definitely not old at 53, I feel 30 again, things don't hurt like they used to. My health and strength are phenomenal. I have been a little slothful simply because the soloflex is in a room right besides the bedroom and its just so dang easy to use. I had to force myself to slow down, was using every day. I get better results using every other day. My wife and grown kids are so proud of me. I'm thinking of putting a video on YouTube called, body by Solofletch. Soloflex was and still is the BEST !!!!
I have been working out since I was 14. When I turned 22 I purchased one because I was so impressed with the design. Its a companion in a way. You will know what I mean if you are 52 and have seen many things change.
Its had a number of benefits and some I can mention and some I will not. Lets just say it will keep you "active". For a flat stomach it does a great job on lowering your blood sugar which is such a plaque in today's world. Unlike 1982. Anyway customer service has been good and over the years too so enough said.
Bought mine used I already was very stout at the time. Could bench 350lbs without ever having worked out. I sold it. Years later got fat and week wanted to get back in shape. Bought a bowflexd revolution. Didn't like the results at all couldn't hardly give it away. Did.t think soloflex was still around. Picked one up the other day used. New type bench. Amassing how I was dum b enough to have ever let my first one get away. Won't happen again. 51 now and 290lbs. 5'11. Will holler back in 6 months. Don't ever stop building this machine. AAA
I have had mine since they came out. I love the workout, I love what shape i am in at 50.
I got it when I was a Sophmore in high school & it's moved with rme every where I go. I may take 2-3 months off but than 8 always go back to it.
Yep, I bought my SoloFlex in 1984. I started experimenting with it and learning how to use it to my max benefit. No piece of equipment works if you don't use it. In college I used to do free weights and other machines like the classic "universal gym". I also had a spotter and coach. Free weights are great if you have a good spotter. If you don't you most likely will have real problems. I did.
The human body is not perfectly symmetrical so we naturally tend to favor one side or the other when we lift. Simply put, my back muscles were tighter on one side than the other which resulted in a spinal twist that, one day, became excruciating. A good chiropractor spent two years getting me back in form.
SoloFlex addressed that problem perfectly. The machine provides the resistance I need with the safety that replaces a spotter. The bar "floats" just enough to make your muscles work independently without the danger of backlash or bad drop if you have a muscle 'exhaustion' failure.
The SoloFlex is forgiving and patient. After moving some time ago I didn't set my SoloFlex up right away. Space issues. Over time, aging and lower activity levels took their toll. I became re-inspired and kicked my SoloFlex program back in action three days a week, for starters, and modified my diet. Four months later I was 37 pounds lighter and feeling great again.
Today, at 60 years young, I'm still able to out perform my adult sons on the machine. Hopefully, dear 'ol dad will be an inspiration. I think the SoloFlex is the best bang for the buck I've seen since 1969. I'm trying but I haven't worn mine out yet.
The Soloflex is efficient, effective and very durable.
