I bought a Door Gym, unfortunately I couldn't find a Creative Fitness one here in the UK (not on amazon.co.uk and US amazon won't ship to UK), so I found this on ebay and it arrived today:
I'm a bit disappointed though... Turns out it's a product called an 'EZ Up'.
Firstly, it only has parallel bars whereas the picture on the listing clearly shows a horizontal bar.
The other main problem is that when the lip is over the top of the door frame on the other side of the door, the bars sit way too low in the door frame, at about my shoulder height. Even if I tuck my knees I couldn't get a dead hang without hitting the floor.
Anyway I think I have a case for sending it back because of the misleading picture, but I wanted to check with people whether its worth doing that, or if they're all like this. I guess I can make do as it is. I thought I could use the horizontal fixing bar to grip, but then I think theres no cantilever anymore and all the weight would be on the door frame on the opposite side.
I could always fix something on myself to make a horizontal bar at the front. I saw creative fitness do a broad reach adaptor - so I wondered if the door gym was the same as this and you had to buy the extra part. Also if that part would fit mine (although it doesn't help much because I still can't get it in the UK!)
The most annoying thing though is the height... in all the pictures it is right at the top of the door, but this just slips down from there until it hits the door frame. Would this be the same with the real 'Door Gym'?
What do others do? Any advice greatfully received...
