Twist and Shape Review
Sydney Barnes says in her review – “The Twist and Shape handle post is a little rickety but the base overall is stable. You will be able to use Twist and Shape for cardio but it would have been great if there was height adjustment to make a higher step.”
Lauren Norton reveals in her review – “Twist and Shape seems like a good machine, and does well – but the only problem is that you have to keep tightening up the bolts.”
Elizabeth Ryan mentions in her review – “It would be nice if the equipment was a little bigger because if you are on the bigger side it is difficult to use.”
Gordon Marshall says in his review – “Twist and Shape is a little bit of trouble to assemble because of the holes lining up.”

You will need to tighten the screws ever so often and oil the pistons (included) but other than that the Twist and Shape unit is fabulous. It is pretty, the tension works very well, noticeable difference between tight and loose. This machine is super simple to put together with all the tools included. There will be no problem with this machine when you move homes. You can it keep in your living room because your kids won’t hurt themselves with this machine.”
