This is my second inversion table, and as another review wrote, I too was looking to get the 4000 model, then happened upon the 3000. After reviewing the features, and the cost difference, decided on the 3000.... and glad I did!
Here was my main Concerns with the table I was going to get...
1.) Sturdy construction - wanted to have a weight limit of at least 300 lbs ... this is rated at 350! - and is well made.
2.) Wanted a Long handle to lock your ankles in ... This has... and why this is important.. you will notice many tables have these VERY SMALL / Short handles that require you to bend over, almost doing a toe touch... I have longer legs and shorter torso so this was a MUST...
3.) Wanted a unit that folded, or at least would partially fold so as not to take up alot of floor space ... this does, mind you it is not to practical to take it apart each time as they state, but can be folded to reduce floor space by about 40%.
4.) Ease of assembly ... This was a breeze, took roughly 30 minutes by myself! Most is pre-assembled - what isn't is described in the directions and easy to follow.
My first table took over 3 hours, and was a total pain to assemble, I needed to use the table just from assembling as it also weighed a hefty 125 lbs, and did NOT Fold at all!
5.) Nice manual - they should note that you must read before using, as it has some great suggestions for first time users, and exercises to do before inverting to help with stretching so that you don't hurt yourself...
6.) USE COMMON SENSE, MY MOTTO WAS "LOW AND SLOW" - LOW DEGREE OF DECLINE (15-20 DEGREES AT FIRST) AND LIMIT YOUR TIME... USE YOUR HEAD, AS YOU CAN CAUSE YOURSELF MORE HARM BY RUSHING THE PROCESS!
I AM A TOTAL INVERSION BIGOT - AFTER GETTING MY FIRST TABLE I DID NOT GO TO A CHIROPRACTOR FOR 6 YRS ! BEFORE INVERSION I HAD TO GO ABOUT EVERY 3-6 MONTHS FROM PULLING SOMETHING IN MY BACK!
I can't stress the "LOW & SLOW" enough ... If you take your time you will, I hope, get all the relief and benefits that I did....
Take care, and "HANG IN THERE"!!!
