It is well built and very sturdy.

I looked at a few benches in the local sporting goods stores that were similarly priced and felt that this was the best deal.

It was very easy to put together with simple instructions.

A weight bench is a simple enough thing but the exact details of making a good one are very important. Universal / Nautilus studied each one and really got it right with this one. I looked at many benches around this price point and felt like they all fell short somehow and I looked at more expensive benches thinking you get what you pay for and a more expensive bench must be better, but Universal really knocked this one out of the park and got it right. If you use dumbbells and maybe situps (no barbell*) this bench has everything you need and nothing you don't (which would mean excess size and weight!). Speaking of which, if you don't want the leg supports the bench is designed and painted such that you can leave that off and it looks equally sharp.
*see edit/update at the bottom

Pros:

Solid- when the box for this bench showed up I was surprised at how light the box was. It actually had me worried as I've tried out benches that felt like they had give and of course when you've got weights up and you need to focus on perfect form the last thing you want is the chance of feeling a slip or flex underneath you. All fears were gone after setting it up though. This thing is SOLID. The design is clever - the supports extend from your CG at an angle to the floor supports and rest directly on the foot piece rather than being bolted to the side. This is akin to holding a weight overhead instead of out from your body - it will just transmit the weight with nothing to flex. Benches where the supports are bolted to the side have to sink in as the shear force is absorbed and the repeated loading will loosen the nuts.

For only ~$100, I don't know if you can do better. I heard bad things about the cheapo Apex bench and wanted something that wouldn't kill me. It was between this or the Bowflex benches. Since I hear bad things all the time about Bowflex products and they're all horrendously overpriced, I went with this one.

Pros:
- Sturdy (430lb weight limit). No qualms about stepping on this holding dumbbells.
- Very comfortable. Wide enough for an average person to lie down comfortably. Good height and length. Foam is dense but not hard and the surface feels VERY nice to the touch. Higher quality than I'd expect from a $100 bench.
- Easy enough assembly

Neutral:
- Item is slightly different than bench pictured. There is no rounded cushioning under your knees, it's just a flat cushion. It also appears to be lower than the one pictured.
- I'm 5'11" and the top of the bench hits my very upper neck. If supporting your head is important, be weary if you're above 6ft tall.

Cons:
- Foam rollers aren't the most comfortably thing in the world. I wish they had a vinyl cover or something.

Overall I'm very pleased. I don't like making compromises on quality but as far as a cheap bench goes, you can't go wrong with this one.

Amazon really needs to change the photo on-line. This bench has been redesigned and is not the one currently pictured.

This bench would not due for an advanced lifter but should be adequate for the novice.

pros:

1) good value
2) mostly well made with good materials
3) nice incline feature

cons:

1) bottom seat should tip up for comfort when in incline position
2) leg holder not a good design
3) not a good crunch board
4) plastic leg caps keep falling off when moving bench
5) no directions for assembly or use

I suck at putting stuff together. My wife has to help me out every time. I know, I'm a sorry excuse for a man. But I put this bench together all by myself with little error (make sure the logo on the front is right side up). After assembling, working out on it is great. It's solid, doesn't wobble, and actually DOES have a decline position. At first glance it appears to only have 4 positions but simply removing the lock from the last notch puts it into a slight decline... Pretty nice!

So yeah, for the price it's not too shabby. Four stars.

I usually go to the gym to work out. I bought this and a Select Tech 552 set to supplement working out at home for the winter.

Bench is sturdy, works for what it's worth but not quite enough to make me happy.

Decline position is not enough.
No 90 deg upright position.
The most upright position seems like it puts pressure on the padding structure.
Leg bars just seem not to be in the right position.
The seat only lays flat, would be nice to tilt upward slightly to keep you from sliding off.

This product is great just one small con and that is there is not a complete up right position. So for sitting to do shoulder presses it gets challenging but can be done. The quality is good and the product goes together fairly quickly.

Needed a solid weight bench to start Beachbody's Body Beast program, and I'm glad I found this one! At the time this bench was $107 and had solid reviews which is why I decided to order it. Some of the unhappy reviewers complained about the assembly being difficult, or not having the best instructions. But I found it pretty simple to put together, and didn't really read the instruction because you can basically see how each part fits onto the bench.

I've been using this bench for about a month now and its met my expectations, and has also stood up to a lot of use during the start of my Body Beast program. The base is solid, and does not wobble or feel at all unsafe during use, which is an important part when you are using heavy weights and need it to be as stable as possible. It's also got 5 different positions(inc decline) and it still feels safe and not cheaply made at all.

If I had one gripe it would be the fact that the bench does not have an upright position setting, the highest it will go is still at a slight angle so for some of the moves in Body Beast you have to just sit up straight rather than rest your back against the back of the bench. But this is only a minor complaint, and does not really hinder the workouts in anyway.

If you don't want to spend over $200 for a bench, then this is probably what you are looking for.
