So with all the high ratings, why should you spend the extra money on a Teeter? This is a difficult question to answer unless you have previously purchased a lower to mid-range table. I purchased two different tables in the last ten years before I invested into a Teeter. I bought and sold my previous tables during different moves to avoid shipping/moving costs. Inversion tables hold their value very well so they are easy to sell.
Recently I moved once again (yes, I move a lot) and luckily this time around I owned a pair of gravity boots. The problem was not moving my boots, it was my lease that forbid me from drilling into any door frames. Once again it was time to grab a new table on Amazon.
I always wanted a Teeter and my back needed it. So I finally took the plunge and spent the money.
I was amazed as soon as I opened the box and saw the frame. It was beautiful. Thick solid construction and a beautiful dark charcoal finish. The leg extension was fitted with two contoured ankle locks. Most of the cheaper inversion tables just have a bar to trap your feet.
The set-up was easy. Only six screws and the main parts were easy to seat.
So what makes a Teeter a true 5 star?
-Very solid construction. The frame is a good 3x the weight of my previous tables. This keeps the table from making any squeeking noises and the base from wobbling as you flip backwards.
- The main table in contrast to the base is light but strong and comfortable. The strong blue backing is a huge step up from the cheap stuffed vinyl boards that are standard on most other tables. The cheaper models usually have the table back screwed into a metal frame that gets wobbly and creeky pretty fast.
- The ankle supports are fitted perfectly and mold to your ankles. Much more comfortable than a singe bar lock.
- The leg extension is also solid and heavy with an easy scale to determine what length you should set it to. It is does not wiggle at all.
- The balance may be the best feature. It is extremely accurate and controlled. The cheaper brands can flip faster and make it harder to pull yourself back up. If you adjust the leg bar one notch you can feel the difference but only slightly. With the cheaper brands one notch could give you an unwanted quick flip.
- Like floating on air. The solid base and the light table are the perfect combo for smooth controlled movement.
- Beautiful look and not a vinyl eye sore.
This table is more than worth it. Invest in a Teeter and you will not be disappointed. The mechanics of a Teeter actually make you want to use it. My other tables were more of a chore.
I never write reviews this long but I felt this product deserved it. If you are on the fence, I hope this review helps you take the plunge and buy the best. You won't regret it.
1. It is sturdy and will easily hold up to 250 lbs. This is what you want when you're thinking about investing in an inversion table because it will give you the confidence to eventually fully invert and can prevent you from earning a neck brace.
2. It folds so that it can be put away in a corner or closet, BUT IT IS STILL A SEMI-HEAVY TABLE-about 60 lbs. Also keep in mind that the ankle part sticks out about 8 inches, so this isn't a table you can easily fold and slide under your bed (unless you have a very high bed). In addition, many inversion tables do not fold, which translates to taking up more space.
3. I'm fully convinced that Teeter is one of the top of the line brands for inversion tables because they use quality material. Once assembled, it is easy to use, but DO NOT RUSH into fully inverting. This is a mistake I made in a desperate attempt to relieve the tension in my back. While I was able to fully inert after day one, I wouldn't recommend until you're comfortable bringing yourself back up. Yes, it takes a little muscle to pull yourself up, but you can do it.
4. While the ankle straps are a little painful (especially when fully inverted), I've come to the conclusion that this is the small price you pay BUT the Teeter is probably the one that hurts the LEAST compared to other inversion tables. I say this because when I compared this table to the other $100-$200 tables, they didn't have the cushioning or support that this table does. I found that wrapping a towel will ease the pain, but you will get used to it and be glad feel MUCH safer strapped in these than another other cheaper table. I almost went the cheap route, but I'm glad I didn't!
Now for the bad. :(
1. It takes up quite a bit of space. The table can hold up to a 6ft 5in person, but you need about 8 feet across so that when you're inverting you don't hit anything on either side. It's also about 2 and half to 3ft wide. I also mentioned that it is about 60 lbs, so it's a little hard to move by yourself. I recommend dedicating a space of its own because moving this table around gets old fast.
2. Some of the parts don't line up (at least my didn't). If I'm spending a lot of money on a product, I expect everything to fit as it's supposed to. That being said, I was able to force some of the screws in place until they set and was able to use the table.
3. I mentioned this earlier, but it's strenuous on the ankles. However, this is a small price to pay for a healthier back. And no, this isn't a "it hurts good" sensation, it's a "WTF am I doing to myself" feeling because it numbs your ankles and you look like a newborn giraffe when you immediately try to walk after you get off the table; however, if you wait about 30 seconds, you'll be fine and get used to it.
Overall, the Teeter lives up to its expectations. From my experience, the first use I noticed a difference, but that feeling of it "working" went away within a few days, but that's not to say it actually stopped. Expect a sore but tolerable back for a week and a half or two, as your back is getting used to the stretching. Don't buy this table if you're limited on space and consider a back stretcher instead. Also, remember that it takes time to feel actual results. Eventually, I stopped slouching and have improved my posture and even sleep better. My back feels much better than it has before and I highly recommend this table for those with back issues. Though there are other cheaper inversion tables on the market, remember that this one has all the bells and whistles you want in an inversion table - the bridge to arch your back, the pressure point balls - and I guarantee that it will pay for itself if you're a frequent chiropractor visitor like I was.
