Top customer reviews
It came nearly fully assembled. All I had to do was either install the bolts that were included, or use the pin that came with it for fast breakdown. That is great!
One common complaint is that the bench is narrow. It is narrow, but to do dumbbell exercises I didn't feel that it needed to be large. I'm an average sized guy, but if you were larger I would try it out first. Another complaint is that it would be short. I can see this one a bit easier. I am about 5'11 and I have to scoot down quite a bit.
One thing that I didn't really like is that there is no tab to lock the bench in the fully upright position. It does stop in the upright position, but if you wobbled back and forth I think you could ride it back to the next tab.
Another thing to keep in mind is that if you want to use it for decline lunges it is a bit unstable. But again its not designed for that.
OK, now that that's settled, the bench is great for small spaces and it is sturdy enough for larger people. I'm 6 foot, so I do not have any of the height issues. I use it for a quick dumbell workout, then hang it up on the wall out of the way. It's a little bulky and takes a little getting used to setting it up.
I would have given it 5 stars if the included the bungee cords since the eye hooks are there for a reason. Took me 3 trips to the hardware store to get the right size.
The only reason for a four star review instead of five (and I'd prefer to say 4.5), is that the back component does not lay completely flat ever simply due to the design, the lowest it can be is at a 5-10° angle. Nothing overwhelmingly problematic, just something to note.
Additionally I would prefer some manner of locking mechanism when adjusting the angle of the back, for safety reasons, and not simply using the pressure/weight of the back itself and the individual seated on it.
You can choose from 5 incline back positions and 3 locking positions for each leg, allowing you to set it up for a variety of flat, incline, and decline exercises. At first glance, the incline back doesn't appear to lay perfectly flat but once the legs are locked into place, only the seat itself is at a very slight incline. While its perfectly flat, you can hold onto the handles of the incline back during ab crunches and other ab exercises, a nice bonus indeed, not to mention it's upgradeable with the optional accessories Best Fitness makes for this bench.
One of the key highlights of the bench is its size. End to end, the bench measures about 3-1/2' when in the flat position, though this can be a bit of a double-edged sword. It's great that it doesn't take up a lot of room, but this also doesn't make it an ideal bench for tall people. If the length from your pelvic bone to the base of the back of your head is longer than this, you may want to consider a longer bench. The bench is also on the somewhat skinny side, measuring only 9-3/4" at its widest point, so keep that in mind when factoring in your body type.
Another key highlight is its storage-friendliness, allowing you to store the bench under a bed or in the back of a closet, which is a fantastic feature that is lacking from most home workout benches in general. However, there's a bit of a missed opportunity here - neither the legs when completely folded in nor the incline back while in the flat position can lock into place. Instead, there are 2 steel loops on each leg for securing them together with a bungie cable or strap, and the incline back just hangs if stored vertically. For these reasons, the bench is best suited for being stored under a bed.
Overall, the Best Fitness BFFID10 FID bench wins in the versatility department. The cushioning should provide admirable support throughout your workouts, but the cushioning is pretty firm so don't expect it to compare to the likes of your mattress or favorite sofa. It's also a little disappointing that the legs and incline back cannot be locked into place, which can make storing the bench in closets a clunky ordeal and further keeps it from being a 5-star product in my opinion. Still, the solid construction, expandability, and low price tag for this portable bench make it well worth the investment regardless.
