Total Gym owners manuals can be found on the Total Gym website, TotalGymDirect.com. As of 2015, the site has PDF copies of manuals for more than 15 Total Gym machines available for download. All manuals are in English, but at least one machine also has a French language manual available.
Total Gym makes exercise machines designed for strength training and increasing flexibility. The company was founded in 1974 by a former professional bodybuilder and his business associates. The machines produced by the company use resistance bands to work muscle groups and improve strength rather than traditional weights and pulleys. The machines can also be adapted to allow a variety of exercises to be performed without additional equipment.
