Strengthen the muscles of the upper body by doing a proper pull-up using only a portion of your body weight. The Total Gym Pull Up Trainer is built on an adjustable incline allowing users to select a percentage of their own bodyweight to pull. With seven incline levels to select from, the Total Gym Pull-up Trainer lets users lift anywhere from 35 percent to 65 percent of their own bodyweight. Its unique design also permits anyone to do a plyometric or one-arm pull-up.
Total Gym Pull Up Trainer engages all the muscles of the upper body to efficiently and effectively enhance muscle definition and improve overall strength.
Using a percentage of a person’s own bodyweight rather than counterbalance assistance, the Pull-up Trainer is the only pull-up assist machine that allows for plyometric movements.

Total Gym Pull-up Trainer Exercise: Demo
My unit had several holes drilled and tapped at slightly off locations, meaning that the base and elevating section are held together by fewer screws than the original design intended. Probably fine for home use, if I had intended to use it commercially (which it is intended for), I would have probably returned it. The unit is a good alternative to going to the gym or risking damage to door frames with other types of pull up equipment. Realize that it allows the user to pull up about 60% of their body weight, so it is not the same as a real pull up, but it is certainly a start. Except for the misplaced screw holes, it seems to be very well made. Price was about 1/2 of MSRP, probably because of the screw issue, although it was not marketed as a "second". I do not regret the purchase.
