Please note that, for those of you interested in the Leg Press attachment, that buying the main unit first, and then saving up to add the leg press "later" could be a bad idea. Why? Because the way this thing is constructed, you can't add or remove weight plates without disassembling the primary frame components... which means that you would very likely be required to disassemble a large portion of this thing in order to add extra weight plates (which are going to be necessary for leg presses). The whole process of disassembly/reassembly just to add the leg press attachment is likely to be extremely annoying and time consuming... albeit possible, if you're willing to put up with the headache.
The parts are very well built. After assembly, nothing seems the least bit wobbly. If treated well, I expect this product to hold up and perform quite well for many years. It has a great variety of exercises that closely mirror what many machines in a public gym would accomplish. Its sheer array of exercise options was one of the reasons I chose to purchase this unit.
After having stretched and fine-tuned the cables, the movement and action works very smoothly and confidently. I haven't heard any grinding, squeaking, or rubbing anywhere. Operation, while not noiseless, still approaches silent if you're someone with a gentle touch and good self-control.
I'm also pretty happy about how small of a space I was able to fit this thing into. I've got this in a tiny 90 square foot room, with enough space to operate... granted that I'm not using the optional leg press attachment. Having such a wide array of exercises available in such a small space is great, I think.
This home gym, despite its apparent versatility in many ways, appears to be built for relatively SMALL people. How so? It is due to the length of the frame materials. The length of the frame materials is critical to being able to stretch your body to extremities of your range of motion. Without using all of your range of motion, during strength training, you will not be able to take the most from your exercises.
I'm a male, standing 5'8", from which you can extrapolate the (relative) length of my arms, compared to yours. My arm length, compared to my skeletal frame, is probably about average proportion. With the cables fully tightened and adjusted, I feel like I'm missing maybe 1.5 inches from my complete range of motion when reaching up to grab the Lat Bar in its "home" position. Also, when using the "press frame" to do rowing exercises, I also feel like I'm missing maybe 1.5 inches from my complete range of motion. Also, consider that, ideally, you really don't want your full range of motion to include the "home" position! You want your full range of motion (while gripping the bar) to leave the weight plates suspended at least 1 inch from the rest of the weight stack... because you should NEVER be setting the weights down between reps.
What this means is that the frame is of this home gym is about 2.5 inches too short for someone of my height (5'8"). But, when I look at all this as positively as possible... the loss of those few extra inches (in some ways) could completely make or break your ability to fit this home gym into a room in your house. Because, keep in mind, that you don't JUST need space for the machine. You need plenty of space AROUND the machine in order to use it. Also, missing maybe 1.5 inches from your range of motion will not too adversely affect your ability to maintain your general health, nor your ability to strength train. The ONLY to two things which this will adversely affect are your ability to cut and tone your body, and your ability to use this machine "therapeutically", to nurse injuries back to health. Building a very tight and cut physique REQUIRES full weight pushed to your entire full range of motion. And nursing injuries REQUIRES using very light weight to your entire full range of motion.
But, if your only goals are building body mass or supporting general health, then I doubt that missing such a small amount from your range of motion would hold you back very much (Although it will a little bit).
There is only one other way I've noticed in which this machine is "too small". The Pec Dec station always brushes closely into my chest as I squeeze the pads inward. For "skinny people" this probably wouldn't be an issue. Personally, I have a very well developed chest, so the Pec Dec pads always push into my chest while using this station. It doesn't stop me from being able to take the most possible from the exercise... but it still is mildly annoying because it distracts me. Pec Decs in public gyms always have plenty of room for me, and I'm not accustomed to constantly having my chest rubbed while doing this exercise.
And the final reason, why this machine appears to be designed for small people: it only comes with 200lbs of weight plates. Though I was initially tempted to buy the option Leg Press attachment for this home gym, I'm VERY glad that I didn't. In a public gym, I need to put over 400 pounds of weight on my leg press exercises, and there's no way that this machine could ever provide that, in its wildest dreams.
Unfortunately, these cons caught me off guard. In retrospect, had I known about them beforehand, I would probably have still gone ahead with the purchase, due to the low price of the unit and the sheer array of exercises... but if I had longer arms (as will someone who is 5'10" or taller) then this could easily become a total deal-breaker. I imagine that 5'10" (if they have short arm length for their height) is probably the maximum height someone can be to still be able to get their money's worth... and then only if they expect to use this machine for mass building, and general health. 5'10" is probably too tall for someone to be able to nurse back and shoulder injuries or to chisel out a really cut back. (I say back and shoulder, because these are the only two exercises which are limited by this machine's dimensions)
I greatly wish I had known about these details ahead of time. It is borderline criminal to not fully explain this to purchasers before allowing them to drop thousands of dollars on an item.
The only other "cons" I can think of are that the included "accessories" leave something to be desired. Obviously they skimped on these parts. I had to order mini-plates to add to the weight stack, so that I could select weights in 2.5 pound increments, instead of 10 pound increments. This is not so important when working compound muscle groups, but is critical when working biceps, triceps, and shoulders. I also ended up ordering multiple bars with better shapes, better sizes, and better grip material and grip options.
All these accessories probably cost me something around 200 bucks altogether. The included bar that is intended for use with curls or push-downs is a joke. It is TINY, short, completely straight, and has a hard plastic (brittle and slick) grip. It might as well be from a toy store. I replaced it with a bar that has "angled" rubber grips, so that it doesn't destroy my wrists as I exercise, and the whole experience is more ergonomic. I also purchased a "rope attachment" because varying the type of strain on your triceps is critical to toning and cutting your arms. The included Lat Bar isn't so trashy as the Arm Bar... but is clearly very generic. I replaced it also, because I needed better grip material, a different bar width, and more gripping locations. I consider these accessory replacements to (essentially) equate to "hidden cost requirements" for this gym that cause its price to be about $200 above the listed price.
I assembled it alone in approximately 6 hours. There were a few times when I wished that I'd had help but, in the end, there was nothing required by assembly that couldn't be finished with only a dash of "acrobatics". I question whether a small woman or an old person could do it alone... mainly because sometimes I was required to hold up a very heavy part, at an awkward angle, with one hand... while doing some fine manipulation with the other hand. But, finally... success. My shipment had no missing parts, and the assembly instructions were (mostly) clear, and in understandable English.
I like to be a bit more hardcore with my workout routine than this gym was designed for. HOWEVER, I bought this home gym to "supplement", not "circumscribe" my training. Also, I'm not rich and I was on a budget when shopping for a home gym. These two points are what made this purchase worth it for me. I actually live right across the street from a public gym (at which I have a membership). Ideally, I want myself to train every day... I kept finding myself skipping a few training days here and there because "It's rainy and depressing outside" or "I got off work late, and I need time to cook dinner"... etc.. etc.. So I wanted workout equipment in my house, to give me a way to still work out on days where I skipped going to the public gym for various reasons. For this purpose, this particular home gym is both awesome, and a great bang-for-your-buck item... if you aren't too tall for it. :)
My previous home gym was a different story. After a few years of use, the places where pins and bolts pierced through rotating metal plates had worn the holes in the plates to huge sizes, leaving me with only millimeters before the holes broke through to the edge of the plates. This had made the mechanisms sloppy and loose and the range of motions faulty and imprecise, not to mention making me constantly anxious that the whole thing was so unsafe it was ready to come down on my head. With this gym, wherever there are pivoting parts or rotating shafts, there are proper bushings incorporated to allow for the movement over time, and it appears these can be lubricated as needed. Again, much thought went into this.
I also find the possible exercise positions to be extremely versatile. I will be able to work any muscle group I choose in a variety of different ways. It would be impossible to get bored because one could change it up constantly, if desired, and for anyone serious about body-building, the several different nuances of conducting the same movement will prevent developing only one set of muscle fibers in the muscle bundle. For example, the multiple positions possible in the chest press station will prevent you from looking like you're smuggling 2 grapefruits under your shirt and provide you with wider, taller and better proportioned pecs, if that is what you're after. Same holds true for delts, lats, quads, etc.
In short, this thing is the bomb! I'm a believer in this company - they really know their stuff. And I'm expecting years of enjoyment out of this thing! P.S. This review box doesn't let you go back and review what you just wrote, so I hope whatever I just wrote makes sense!
Assembly was fairly straightforward, although there are instances where the picture shows more things being done than the accompanying words (most end caps and things like that being installed, but if you miss them it's a pain to go back sometimes). I did end up with 2 extra washers and a nut, but as near as I can tell everything was put together correctly. About 3 hours to assemble by myself, and another decent workout.
The operation is very smooth, and the exercise poster is very helpful. I did not get the leg press attachment, and I use a different curling bar (the straight bar that it comes with doesn't do my wrists or elbows any good), but the look and feel of the machine is everything you would expect to find at your local gym, and the 30-plus exercises you can do make it easy to vary your routine and work specific muscle groups. I was feeling results almost immediately, and physically seeing results in about 2 weeks. I have this product, a treadmill, and an exercise bike and I really do feel like I have a complete gym right in my house.
