$2500!
We are selling a slightly used Balanced Body Tower of Power system from one of our clients who moved out of the country. The Tower of Power is a Reformer, Mat unit and Tower all in one! It's in excellent condition, and also comes with box and jump board. The only blemish is that it has a slight fade line on the leather carriage due to storage.

For comparison, a new Tower of Power with jump board and box would cost approx $4000, plus tax and shipping. We're selling it for $2500 total. The unit can be picked up in Moss Beach (just north of Half Moon Bay) and is ready now!
