About Tiger Total Body Trainer
Tiger Total Body Trainer claims you can burn fat while watching TV or the kids - so long as you are exercising in its seated workout device. Tiger, which bills itself as the Ultimate Total Body Trainer guarantees you will lose up to 10 lbs or 10 inches in 30 days or your money back.
Tiger Total Body Trainer is brought to you by Telebrands, creators of the As Seen On TV logo and who claim to be the oldest direct marketing company in the world. Telebrands is based in Fairfield, NJ and has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau since 2007. They currently have an A- rating because most claims against their products have been satisfactorily resolved.
How Tiger Total Body Trainer Works
The Tiger is a piece of equipment you sit on that claims to be the ultimate full body workout system. It looks somewhat like an orange-colored exercise bike. But instead of pedaling, you are alternately pushing down with both feet and pulling the T-bar towards you, raising and lowering your body in the process. This is what they call “riding the Tiger”.
They say using Tiger Total Body Trainer is more fun than boring gym or treadmill workouts and that you can do it in the comfort of your own home. They say it combines a resistance workout with an aerobic exercise which they claim will transform your body fast and in ways you never thought possible.
They claim the secret is its revolutionary design and what they call dual motion technology that combines 4 traditional exercises - leg press, row, squats, and cruncher - into one “fat blasting” workout. They claim you can burn up to 220 calories in a 10-minute workout; they add it sculpts muscles and burns fat.
Tiger Ultimate Full Body Trainer claims it can be used by people of all ages. They say unlike a treadmill which can cause joint or back pain, the Tiger is low-impact workout that’s easy and comfortable. They state your body is fully supported as you ride.
They claim it will tone, sculpt and strengthen muscles and that it targets all the major muscle groups as you ride. They tout it will shape your buns, hips, thighs, shoulders, back, chest, biceps, and triceps. They state you will also have a cardio workout using your own body as resistance. With a simple grip repositioning, they say you can also target specific “problem areas” of your body.

Tiger Total Body Trainer Pricing, Shipping, and Returns
Tiger Ultimate Total Body Trainer sells for $199.99 plus $20 S & H for a total of $119.99. They claim your Tiger will most likely be shipped within one week but to allow up to six in case it is back-ordered. They have both a 30 day money back guarantee as well as a 30 day 10 lbs/10 inch loss guarantee, which are essentially the same thing: try this product and if it doesn’t deliver the results you desire, you can return it (you pay shipping) and they will refund the $199. Telebrands also insists that you provide a “detailed explanation” with your return, or they may not honor it.
Bottom Line: Is Tiger Total Body Trainer a Scam?
Combo exercise units can be a great idea, especially if one doesn’t have time or money to go to a gym. There have been complaints, however, that the Tiger you receive does not look like the one in the video and that it is cheaply made. Some also state that the exercises put pressure on the knees and it is difficult for tall people to use. And, while you may indeed lose some weight, odds are your body will not become as perfectly sculpted as the paid models in the informercial. You may want to wait until the Tiger is available at your favorite big box retailer, which will save you shipping charges and make returns much less of a pain in the gluteus maximus.

The best exercise machine ever.
This is the ultimate exercise machine. I have been exercising all my life but nothing is like the Tiger. I owned a $3600 machine that had about 6 or seven stations that you could do many exercises on. I use to run a 10k regularly but I never lost any weight. I got arthritis from eating poisonous Peter Pan peanut butter and had to stop running and somebody stole my weight machine. I couldn't find any machine that I could get an aerobic effect on because of my bad knees. Then I found the Tiger and started using it and the results are unbelievable. You get the complete exercise with it. You get muscle toning and strength, you get an aerobic effect and you get limbering and stretching exercises. What tops it is you can sit and watch TV while using it, get tired wait awhile and start all over again. Also the price is very good. I am just worried that I may wear it out with using it so much. That's another thing - the price is right.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
