Rated 2 out of 5 by Affiliate I Expect More From GAIAM
We purchased an inversion table. The instructions were poorly illustrated, especially for inexperienced assemblers.
When I opened the box, I found some of the bolts, nuts and washers were strewn about while others were partially installed.
There are very sharp edges around the holes for the strap and the achilles adjuster bar so be careful.
I used a dremel tool to remove the sharp edges.
When assembled, the unit feels sturdy, however, it costs too much for an average quality Chinese made product.
I expected more from GAIAM, especially since they produce the product.

I almost cried when we opened the box. Several plastic bags filled with screws and nuts and bolts etc. were zip tied to several parts of this. My husband should have been put on your payroll for several hours. This much assembly is not something you put on a customer! And a few things simply weren't made accurately enough to fit together. We had to bend and force one connection and another...well we should have sent it back because it just doesn't fit securely, but by then it was almost assembled. Poor instructions with poor illustrations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RetiredProfessor Nearly Impossible Assembly
We started assembly and found the directions impossible. Fortunately we called and got a new set of directions, but it still wasn't easy. The Inversion Table is great, but I'm not sure I would recommend the product due to the assembly problems.

This inversion table is so easy to use. The handles make it easy to get into position, the height adjustment is clear and simple to change, and the ankle support feels very secure. I love the feeling of space it provides my spine. After I've inverted, any tightness in my lower back or neck and shoulders is gone, my body feels more fluid, and I have more energy. It's awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spidey A great find!
I love this device! As I writer, I spend too much time working on a computer (sitting on a balance ball, though!). Regardless, the time spent sitting began causing me back discomfort as well as draining my energy. The inversion table has helped with both! It was suggested to me by a friend, who is also a writer and suffered similar discomforts. We've both found that an afternoon "hang" gives us a much needed energy boost and unkinks our backs. Love it!
