Rated 5 out of 5 by Gednkerry It really works
I've had the upper body bar now for around 3yrs. My body was very toned 2yrs ago & then I had a lapse due to eye surgery. I've worked very hard since Feb 2016 - this year & I've lost nearly a stone & a half & im back toned already ~ the upper body bar tones you in ways you've never been toned before ~ I only use one cord as I also have a bad shoulder (for the last 61/2yrs) which dislocates continuously ~ that's why I do Pilates (it's the best fitness I've ever done!) Thankyou to Marjalin & Qvc ~ you've given me a new lease of life xxx

Rated 5 out of 5 by tessa Step up to the pull up
I found this a little difficult at first, I felt a bit unsafe until I discovered that if you use the furry straps with your feet inside pushing away to get to the bar and then bending your knees to loosen the straps so you are just using the bar to do pull ups and then if you feel like you have finished or cannot hold the bar or want to take a break you still have your feet in the straps to control your descent back to the end of the machine, apart from that i would like to say this is marvellous for an extra workout on the arms and will be a great addition.

I have had the pull up bar for just over a year and it is amazing. Really works your upper arms, and gives your shoulders and back great definition. I love it!

Saw this when watching demo of Aero Pilates machine which came with the bar and was delighted when I found I could purchase separately to add to my much loved pilates machine (three cord - one red/two black). Been using for a week now and find that it has expanded the range of exercises to target the problematic upper arm area. I found it easy to fit and thus far am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nettygirl1 Worth Waiting For
Missed out first time round, so had a waitlist order and boy, was it worth waiting for.
I would never ever be able to use a normal pull up bar and the addition of this to my AeroPilates machine is fantastic.
The fact that you are still using your own body weight as if using a normal bar, but also benefitting from added resistance with the cords lets you do the same exercises with much less risk of injury.
I usually use 2 cords and then at the end I just hang there stretched out for about 5 minutes before letting go.
Like a previous reviewer I am unable to do the kneeling down exercise, following ankle surgery, but hopefully will be able to do so in the future.
Would thorughly recommend this attachment for your machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mavisdavis excellent addition
I bought my four corded machine three years ago and have loved using it ever since, I bought the upper body bar to complete my workout and have not regretted it. I noticed a huge improvement in upper body strengh and flexibility very qiuckly and now use it with two power cords as well. I rang customer care to see if it was possible to get the chart which comes with machines which now include the bar and you can get it from the manufacturer if you would like it. All in all very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amelia1730 Love it!
Have been looking at this since it first appeared on QVC. The price was a bit high but I finally bit the bullet. So pleased I did. Having neck and upper body muscle dysfunction I was quite worried that this would make things worse but thought I would of course take advantage of the 30 day money back guarantee. Because of the way your body is positioned you feel so protected when doing the pull ups. I am unable to do the exercises in the kneeling position due to injury but wish I could. I have the special neck support, bought on QVC, which fits to the Aeropilates machine but remove it when doing the pull up exercises as it throws my neck forward too much. I am only able to use 1 cord but this is sufficient to say "bye bye bingo wings!"
