In this review, we look at the Supreme Toning Tower, a home workout system that offers the benefits of Pilates and Barre in one convenient fitness aid.
If you want to get a toned body, increase your strength, flexibility, and endurance, and do this quickly, you may have considered signing up for Pilates or Barre classes to help you achieve this goal.
While worth doing, classes can be expensive. And if you’re busy and you don’t live close to a Pilates studio, you probably don’t want to have to fit another commute into your day. Instead, you may be considering using a home exercise system. But which one should you get?
If money and space are tight, choosing a multi-purpose machine is the way to go, and the Supreme Toning Tower is one of the best of its type that you will find. Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about it to help you decide if it will suit your needs.
I will also give you a brief overview of the two other machines in the range; the Supreme Toning Tower Deluxe, and the Supreme Pilates Pro.
Supreme Toning Tower Overview
The Supreme Toning Tower by Beverly Hills Fitness is a Pilates Cadillac Trap Table, a Barre, and a total body toning and strengthening fitness aid in one relatively compact unit. While light in weight, it is very durable. It is easy to use, and it will give you visible results quickly. And, it comes in at a lower price than most comparable machines on the market.
Arriving almost fully assembled, completing the job takes just a couple of minutes, so you will be able to start working out soon after unboxing the device. Just watch the included instructional DVD which explains how to use it, then move onto the exercise DVD.
When you’ve finished your workout, the Tower can be folded to store in a closet. It will even fit under a bed providing it has more than a four-inch clearance from the floor. To fold the tower, simply loosen the screws on either side of the bars, then fold the bars down toward the mat.
When you buy this item you will get a 30-day money-back guarantee, and a 1-year warranty, so you can buy with confidence knowing that if you change your mind or there is a problem, you can get a refund.
There is also the option of buying the Supreme Toning Tower Deluxe, or the Supreme Pilates Pro. Both come with some additional accessories and features, as outlined below.

Benefits of Doing Supreme Toning Tower Workouts
Supreme Toning Tower Workouts provide a variety of benefits.
Using the provided instructional DVDs, you can learn how to take full advantage of the device to target all areas of your body. In fact, doing just ten of the one hundred and twenty plus exercises demonstrated on the workout DVD will provide similar benefits to those of a studio-style Barre and Pilates workout. And you can experience these benefits in the comfort and convenience of your home without having to spend a lot of money!
The Tower’s Barre is set at the same height as those in professional studios. Its heavy-gauge steel is durable, and its uni-tower construction provides easy maneuverability.
Every exercise you do will target your core and abs. By using the Pilates-style swing-thru bar as outlined, regular workouts will enable you to tone your abs in just a few weeks.
Included are 15″ resistance coils that can be attached to the Barre to give you a great leg toning workout and improve your cardiovascular health, muscular strength, and endurance.
The coils’ resistance will vary depending on where you position yourself. They do not come into contact with your skin, so there is no fear of them pinching you.
As well as your legs and abs, you can use the device to target the muscles of your upper body. The included Sculpting Bar gives access to a variety of upper-body workouts. Combine it with the resistance coils, and you will be well on your way to a stronger body.
Regular workouts will also help you to train your body to maintain proper posture. This will improve your muscular and skeletal health, your appearance, and therefore your confidence.
