Please don’t bypass my review it will be well worth your time to read it.
So I spent roughly 78 hours non-consecutively, researching inversion tables. I am a disabled combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. When I came home I had severe issues with my lower back, left shoulder, neck and severe debilitating migraines. That was 2009, the VA tried a few of it’s standard, here’s a rubber band now use this to stretch and build muscle. Yeah right ok whatever you say. Here it is 2015, The VA finally recognized via MRI’s, EMGs and CT scans what I had been telling them for the last 5 years.
Don’t stop reading, it’s not what you think!!! My bad back told me that the chiropractor and the doctors were not helping, so I had better try something else. Enter the Gravity 4000…….It’s kind of scary the first few times, but even at a gentle inversion (it’s infinitely adjustable) I felt my spine stretch….crunch….Ooo, that was nice. I righted myself too quickly, which made me light headed for a few seconds, but when I stepped out of the machine there was no pain. Upon daily use for 3 or 4 days, I went 3 or 4 days with no pain. On the machine at a steeper inversion for about 10 minutes (it gets a bit uncomfortable for me after that amount to time) I slowly righted myself, and again….NO PAIN!! As I write this review, I haven’t needed to use the table for probably a month. A waste of money? No way!! A tried and true, no drug, fix for my back if and when I need it is priceless to me. If there was a negative to this machine it might be that it’s fairly heavy. That being said, I’m pushing 280 and surely don’t want something that’s going to fold under me.
Good Table – Poor Packaging – Comparison to Teeter Hang Ups
I received my Ironman Gravity 4000 a few days ago. Before I discuss the actual product, I want to include a few words about the packaging. The box arrived torn completely open on one end. Possibly, UPS was more to blame, but if the manufacturer had chosen to use double wall, heavy duty corrugated, it might not have torn. Once I opened the box, I found that cheap Styrofoam was used to secure the parts in place. At least, that must have been the idea. By the time I received the package, the Styrofoam had disintegrated into millions of tiny pieces. Once released, the Styrofoam bits took on a life of their own and invaded every nook and cranny of my Family Room. It took me hours to clean up the mess. Despite the Styrofoam padding, the heavy metal parts had all shifted around inside the box resulting in some damage including dents, broken plastic parts and one sheared-off screw. I emailed the manufacturer to obtain replacement parts, and they answered my email right away. A few days later, I received a large box (very well packed this time) containing all of the replacement parts I had requested, and more – All for free. Definitely major points in Ironman’s favor for the quick response and excellent customer service.

The Ironman Gravity 4000 Is Better In Price, Accessories, and Quality Compared To Teeter
After reviewing at every possible inversion table on the market online, and then testing multiple brands at local brick and mortar stores with the exception of the Ironman Gravity 4000, which I was only able to fine online. I made a decision to purchase the Ironman Gravity 4000.
Running up and down the stairs!!
8 months of agony GONE in one week. My husband and I tried out the Big Name Brand at a local fitness equipment store to see if inversion was even feasible for us. We experienced some relief from just a the try-out time, and started researching the less pricey competitors.
Too Small. I bought this one over others because it had the highest weight limit and seemed to be sturdy and capable of handling my 6 foot 4 inch body. It includes a height adjustment that goes up to 6’6″(height adjustment is for the purpose of balancing), but I find it to be too small for me in two respects: the padded board that I put my head on needs an additional inch for me, and three more inches if it is really going to fit a person 6’6″. As it is, when I am inverted my head extends beyond the end of the board just enough to be irritating and resting on the edge. Secondly, the part of the equipment where I put my feet is way too small. I can’t wear any kind of shoes, not even sandles, because it will not fit and the safety part will not close and lock. So barefoot, but the problem with barefoot is that the cross bar or step that you stand on is too narrow and it goes under the worst part of the foot to support weight – across the arch, not the heal and not the pad, but the arch. The IRONman company may think this is designed for tall people, but the foot part is suitable for a man who is 5’4″ and wears a size 9 shoe, not 6’4″ with size 16 feet.
As advertised – well constructed – but watch the feet …
This is a “large” and heavy unit. Which it NEEDS to be, of course. It seems construction is quite sufficient.
One of the best purchases I’ve ever made!
The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is I think the foot/ ankle supports could be improved on. For me they are a little narrow, and the design seems kind of cheap and easy vs putting some research into making them more comfortable and ergonomic. They are better than other inversion tables I’ve used though, so not a lot to complain about still. I bought this over a Teeter Hang Up (which seems to be more popular) because I weigh about 320 and none of their tables had a weight capacity over 300 pounds. This thing overall is very heavy duty and well made.
Worth the Investment
I’m writing this review after two months post-purchase and from the perspective of a single, middle-aged man with lumbar disc herniations for the last ten years – specifically – severe disc degeneration at L4/L5 and L5/S1, moderate at L1/L2, L2/L3, and L3/L4. I’ve included some self-assembly tips below as well.
