CPSC, Total Gym Fitness LLC Announce Recall of Exercise Equipment
Sold by TV Infomercials
PRODUCT: Exercise Equipment - Total Gym Fitness LLC, of West Chester,
Pa., is voluntarily recalling about 3,100 Total Gym XL exercisers. To
operate the exercise equipment, consumers lie on a glideboard that rolls
on an inclined track as the user pulls the hand cords. The Total Gym XL
home exercise equipment has a double rail system that attaches to a
support column at a degree of incline selected by the consumer. A
glideboard slides on the rails. The consumer lies on the glideboard and,
using a pulley system, pulls the glideboard from the ground to the
support column with their own body weight providing the resistance. The
recalled exercisers are black and chrome and have 'Total Gym XL' written
on the glideboard. Total Gym Fitness LLC sold the exercisers directly to
consumers nationwide through television infomercials between January
2002 and February 2002 for about $1,300.
PROBLEM: A lever pin that supports the elevated railing of the
glideboard could fail, causing the user to fall.
INCIDENTS/INJURIES: CPSC and Total Gym Fitness LLC have not received any
reports of incidents. This recall is being conducted to prevent the
possibility of injuries.
WHAT TO DO: Consumers should stop using the exerciser immediately and
call Total Gym Fitness for a free safety bracket. For more information,
