With this Iron Gym Total Body Fitness Kit, you have every muscle-building accessory available to augment the included Iron Gym bar, enabling you to perform a surprisingly challenging, wide-ranging series of workouts in any standard size door.
The kit lets you work your entire body, and most people see noticeable results within 30 days. When used properly, the Iron Gym home training system helps you build a bigger chest, defined shoulders and abdominal muscles, stronger upper arms, and increased endurance and metabolism. The sturdy metal bar's unique design wraps around your doorframe, using leverage to remain securely in place without requiring the hassle or damage of inserting screws.
When used properly, the Iron Gym helps strengthen and tone your entire upper body, and three different grip positions (narrow, wide, and neutral grips) let you switch up your body's positioning and continuously challenge your muscles.
Along with the popular Iron Gym doorframe bar, the kit also includes:
- A pair of ab straps
- Rotating push-up bars
- A cardio jump device--a "rope-less jumprope" with digital counter

Top Customer Reviews
I bought this kit on another website a couple months ago, and overall I have really enjoyed it.
Pullup Bar - I have large doors in my house. Well, mainly tall, but quite wide also, and I was happy to find that the pullup bar was just barely wide enough to install without a problem. The pullup bar is well made, and I can say that with confidence since I weigh 225lbs and the bar supports me with no problem (though the strength of the top of the door frame, where it attaches, is something to consider). Overall, the pullup bar is the main point of the purchase, and is still a great value alone for the price.
Rotating Pushup Bars - I had never used these before receiving them in the kit. I am pleased with this type of device, especially since it has the effect of allowing me to do "deeper" pushups, though this particular unit has two shortcomings. The first is that there is no option to lock the handles in place. They are freely rotating and I must always use that extra bit of effort to keep control of them. Granted, this is not really a big issue, but a lock would be a nice optional feature to have. The second and more important issue is that the grips are THIN. Not thin as in they might break, but thin so that they quickly begin to hurt the palms of my hands. There's no padding on them, and the effect of these small grips is that they concentrate all of the body weight onto such a small amount of surface area on the hands. So, in order to overcome this, I have wrapped both handlebars, liberally, each with a folded dish towel and duct taped them on. The result has been a MUCH more pleasant experience. Now they both have padding AND increased surface area, so my hands are not hurting by the time I finish my reps.
"Cardio Jump Device" - KNOW THIS NOW: these are garbage. Yes it's a great concept for a space-saving alternative to the classic jump rope, and yes it has a built-in jump-counter and cool little weighted foam pendulums and a rotating joint where the ropes connect to the handles... but it's simply not possible to stay in sync with them (at least, for me). The weights are entirely too light, so I find myself whipping these things around at 2x-3x the speed that I am jumping. Even when concentrating on staying in sync, and/or changing hand positions, it's just not possible for me to slow them down to my jumping pace without the pendulums just flopping down. Not even the professional trainer in the commercial can get it to work correctly (see the video on the sale page and you'll see what I mean). I haven't thrown these away yet because I think they might be great if I replaced the pendulums with a real rope... but right now they are completely worthless. So keep your expectations VERY low for these jump-handle-things. I just wish Iron Gym could've spared the extra $0.50 to throw in a DIY replacement rope for them.
Ab Straps - It should also be noted that the kit includes another included piece of equipment not shown in the stock photo - the hanging ab straps. These are attachments for the pullup bar that assist in hanging while doing various leg-raises/crunches. I absolutely love these things. I'm 6ft 3", so I have very long arms and I needed to loosen these straps to what I believe to be the maximum limit. I was surprised to find that, even though I loosened the velcro to where there is only about 6" of connection, the straps have continued to support my weight. They use an extremely strong velcro to attach, and they do what they're supposed to do, without letting my arms slack off too much. Yes they are technically just another feature of the pullup bar, but as I said earlier, the pullup bar is the reason to buy this kit (and the pushup handles, after modification, are a great bonus).
Overall I really like this product. So whether you're really dedicated to working out at home, or you tend to have a collection of old optimistically-purchased equipment piled in your storage, this is a very good set that won't break the bank.
NOTE: This review was written while the item was priced at $25.
The Iron Gym (aka Pull-Up) Bar is solid and does not make you feel like you are going to break either the door or the bar itself while you are doing pull ups. It is slightly adjustable so it fits a limited range of door widths, which I would say is most indoor doors (you're not going to be installing this on your front door or garage door, are you??). I place it in the hallway door between my bedroom and bathroom, which I would say is my most frequented route in the house, so it's not much mental effort to do a couple or more pull ups when I pass under the Bar.
USEFUL: Use paper or a piece of cloth between the foam rests of the Pull-Up Bar and the moulding of your door, or you're gonna get the foam rubbing off on your door or leaving an imprint. Also, if you feel that your hands are hurting and using that as excuse not to do pull-ups, then take a handtowel and wrap the bar with it before encircling it with your hands, or get some leather weight-lifting gloves.
The Rotating Push-Up Bar (aka discs) is not as great as "The Perfect Push-Up" which I unfortunately already had. It doesn't feel as solid and well-made, BUT it is not flimsy by any means. I gave it to a friend a couple of weeks after owning it since I preferred The Perfect Push-Up equipment, but I think it's better than nothing, and when used right, the Push-Up discs strains your wrists less and decreases potential injures. Also, harder than a regular push up when your wrists are straight (vs. bent forward a la traditional push up)
I don't really use the Ab Straps Tried it a couple of times and felt it was awkward to use. I've also read that working on abs in this aerial manner is not effective since most people do not have enough ab strength to do this exercise properly. You're better off doing Bicycle Ab Exercises (which are very effective).
Finally, the Cardio Jump device, which is basically a ropeless jump rope. I am an above-average to excellent jump roper, and these are sort of weird. The straps that hang off are flimsy and I think most people will just fool themselves when using this. You are honestly better off spending $6-10 on regular jumpropes, or doing a bunch of squat/lunge jumps to get the desired leg/cardio workout.
Overall, it's a great purchase, especially since most Pull-Up Bars are already over $25!!!!
Problem is that the foam at the end of the long crossbar wears out. I began noticing marks on the doorframes that I couldn't wash off. Then I noticed that the marks were becoming dents, as in pushed in spots in the wood. After a little bit of pondering, it hit me... the pull-up bar. I checked it and sure enough the foam padding was all but gone and there was bare metal with no padding pressing against the wood.
Be careful and watch out for the wear on the foam and marks and dents on your door frames. I had my son take the crossbar off and rotate it, then refasten it from the other direction. This operation moved the worn foam 180* so that the worn part is now away from the door frame. Now we have fresh padding against the wood, at least till the foam pad wears out again.
