I'm just hanging out, really.

It's messed up our doorway. Left giant black marks and threw things out of whack.

I've got a sturdier, metal one that actually gets drilled into the doorway. That's the other common style for these. Only problem with it is I can't go very wide on pullups/chinups because it's only exactly as wide as the interior of the doorway. Y'know, and not removable.

Haven't gotten to try out this style yet.

I am not a huge fan of that trampoline - although apparently, it's the second-best dog bed ever (after Mom's lap, of course). The springs are very tense and don't have much give. This is a negative for me, but it might be a positive for others. I'm short and don't weigh much, and I use an indoor trampoline to get some exercise because I have injuries that want only low-impact activities. Because I weigh so little, I don't extend the springs very far, so the trampoline surface is more high-impact than low-impact for me. If someone weighed more than 100 pounds, like your average non-7/8th-sized person, I think this might be a great indoor trampoline because the additional resistance would make it safer and more durable. (And this is a great price for it!)

Seriously, my dogs love this thing. One of them likes it so much that I can't keep her off of it - even when I'm jumping on it!

Can someone confirm whether the pull up bar is made of a single long bar or consists of two parts? I recently bought one from Amazon that had good reviews but it consisted of two parts, even though you would never guess from the picture. The lack of single-piece construction made it so flimsy that it bends under the weight of my 100 lb. wife. I would like to not repeat that mistake.

My boyfriend has one. The ends have little pads so it is cushioned against the wall. Its sturdy and works great!

Too funny! I love dual-purpose exercise equipment: treadmill/coatrack, mini-tramp/dog bed!

BTW, for everyone else, this is currently available on the mother ship for the same $30, but w/ free shipping.

I have one. It left marks on the wall and a small crack in the drywall. I was careful while using it too.

A buddy told me you can prevent those black marks by placing a bit of a towel between where the pull up bar meets the door frame. Hope that helped. I myself have been considering buying one as well.
