Body By Jake Tower 200 Review: Busting The HypeBody By Jake Tower 200 Review: Busting The Hype

You've probably seen it in TV infomercials. Or perhaps you've seen it endorsed by five-time Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) champion Randy Couture.

Because this celebrity endorsement comes with a lot of hype, many people are actually seeking for real reviews about the Tower 200. This article will explore the claims of the product and reveal if it does indeed live up to its hype.

Body by Jake Tower 200 - What it is and what it does?

The tower 200 is a resistance-based exercise machine that can be easily installed into practically any door. It comes fully assempbled - you just have to clip it into the top and the bottom of the door, and you're good to go. The metal frame that fits to the door is surprisingly sturdy, considering reviews that products made by "Body by Jake" aren't high-quality.

The resistance bands come in two 25-pound cords, two 35-pound cords, and two 40-pound cords, which you can mix up to get the level of resistance you need. The company claims to provide "explosive resistance up to 200 lbs", which confuses a lot of people. Simply add up 25 plus 35 plus 40 and you get 100 for each side (arm/leg). Combine that and you get 200 lbs overall.


The Tower 200 is easy to assemble and simple to use. You can simply grab the hand grips and put on the ankle straps and you can start working out. Since you only need a door to attach it with, the machine itself doesn't take up space. If you're being hounded by your significant other about free weights lying around the room or bulky work-out equipments taking up space and clutter, then the tower 200 can provide the solution.

The machine also comes with instructional DVDs and manuals to guide you in creating the right routine for you. If you're strapped for time, there's the famous "11-minute workouts" so you've got no excuse not to workout. Just wake up 11 minutes earlier than you need to, and you now have time to workout.

When I was searching the web looking for Body by Jake Tower 200 reviews, the consensus among users is that the simplicity of the equipment and the workout routine makes it easy to stick with it - a common problem among people seeking to lose weight or build muscle.


It's quite understable of course, to be wary of exercise equipments that claim to be "the solution". We need to know whether the tower 200 is worth our hard-earned cash. The common question among interested parties is "Does it work?"

The answer to that question is relative - it depends on the need of the person. If you're a professional bodybuilder, then you won't get what you want just with the Tower 200 alone. However, if you're looking for a versatile equipment that will help you kick-start your way to building muscles or even to maintain muscle tone, then the Tower 200 fits the bill.

Let's conclude this article by answering our primary question...

Does the Tower 200 live up to its hype?

The Tower 200 works - if you're willing to work on it.

However, if you're thinking that you can get ripped muscles from just 11 minutes a day, then allow me to pop the bubble and tell you something you don't want to hear - "You won't!".

The 11 minute workout routine is for those really busy days when you're tempted to skip the routine. Sure, it may provide you all the workout you need for the first couple of weeks, but if you're really doing the 11-minute routine consistently, you won't get any improvements if that's all you do. You need to intensify your routine - either by adding more resistance or repetition.
