At the early age of 19, Walter Marcyan began training with barbells and soon after won the central AAU Light Heavyweight Lifting Championship. From 1934 through 1940, Walter Marcyan began entertaining audiences as a Vaudeville Strongman, performing incredible feats of strength and balancing acts.
In the early 1940’s, Walter Marcyan moved to Santa Monica, California where he began training at the newly established Muscle Beach: a famous training facility that still exists today and where many of the legendary pioneers of bodybuilding such as Jack LaLanne, Bill Pearl, and Arnold Schwarzenegger began their careers.
In 1946, Walter Marcyan opened the first of seven strength training gymnasiums, House of Health, in the Los Angeles area. He was the first to offer personal trainers to his members and emphasized the importance of strength training to men, women and children.
In the early 1950’s, Walter Marcyan participated in the first organized body building competitions. Based on his own personal experiences, Walter Marcyan began building his own strength training equipment for his gyms in Los Angeles.
In 1959, Walter Marcyan founded Marcy Gymnasium Equipment Company. Walter Marcyan believed that everyone should have the opportunity and the knowledge to exercise at home with their own, professional grade equipment. Walter Marcyan was an innovator and a visionary. His patented designs were years ahead of their time and still widely used in commercial and home applications today.

Assembly was easy just took some time. Bolts, nuts all wrapped and clearly marked... not extras or shortages. then again, I'm fairly handy.
Would give this 5 starts but Instructions illustrations could be larger and packaging could be much better as box was damaged and stuff got some marks on it. The company could look to Ikea packaging for some improvements.
Assembly is easy enough and only took a couple hours. One misprint in the instructions for an L pin that goes under the seat. Easy enough to get sorted out.
Solid construction and well made. I like the two sizes of catches, large ones should work well as a press catch when lifting alone. The squat rack on the back is a nice feature for lighter squatting, would have been nice to have catches there as well.
The preacher/leg extension is nice to have, though I'm not a fan of the range of motion the curls allow. Perhaps would be able to get better extension if you are taller than 5'11".
I received this bench about two weeks ago. I assembled the majority of it the night I got it and finished it the next night. All together, it took less than two hours to assemble. I was curious about several things that I didn't see answered anywhere, so I'll go ahead and answer a few questions I had. First, the bench can withstand 600 total pounds (user's weight + lifting weight). You will need a few tools (I believe I used a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket, but don't quote me on that), but everything else is provided.
There are numerous reasons why I gave 5 stars for this bench.
1. The bench feels very, very stable when I'm lifting. I have the bowflex adjustable dumbbells (5-90 lbs) and routinely use 90lbs/dumbbell. When doing this, I haven't even felt the bench move. I also have a Cap bench that feels quite unstable when lifting this much weight (one of the reasons for this purchase). Granted, the other bench was cheaper, but this bench feels solid.
2. There are multiple positions available to do numerous lifts. You can do decline, flat and incline chest presses and you can move the bench part to 3 different locations to ensure your lifting from a comfortable location. I haven't tried the shoulder press yet, so I don't know if the positioning is awkward, but it looks normal to me (I know, really helpful stuff there). The preacher curl can easily be removed or change the position of it, so it's not in your way during other lifts.
3. There are two different locations to put the squat rack attachments in, ultimately allowing more flexibility. I'm able to use either one. However, if you're under 5'-5" or so (my guess), it may be difficult to squat using this.
4. The leg attachment can be locked in the down position, which is nice when doing other lifts. That way, it isn't swinging around when you don't want it to be.
5. The seat is nice and big (both wide and long). Again, my Cap bench has a miniscule seat and makes it a little awkward when doing one handed presses.
6. The preacher curl attachment is easily removable/addable as necessary.
7. There is TONS of room to use dumbbells with this, in addition to barbells. There are a lot of benches where it can become cramped when using dumbbells. I found this to be kind of annoying, even at gyms with commercial grade equipment. Now, I do have to move the barbell attachments (easily done). However, there is plenty of room for me to use my dumbbells when I feel like it.
I have found some minor flaws. Some affect me and others have not.
1. The bench takes up a LOT of room. If you account for the room needed for squatting, a 7' bar and the rotation of the leg curls/extensions, this bench has a pretty massive footprint. I have an unfinished basement, so it's not terrible for me. But, it probably needs something close to a 8' x 12' space.
2. The seat seems to wiggle a little much. I haven't noticed it AT ALL while I'm lifting. However, I moved the bench the other day and it didn't seem as secure as I was expecting. As I just said, this doesn't seem to be a big deal and I'm sure it's fine, since I haven't felt it at all while I'm lifting, just an observation.
3. The preacher curl bar is kind of close to the leg curl bars. I actually hit the leg curl bar a few times with dumbbells while doing preacher curls. However, I have now raised the preacher curl attachment up to where the pin is holding the entire thing up (rather than being in one of the holes, I fully inserted the pin and then put the preacher curl attachment in, ergo the pin is holding up the attachment). Now it's a little high and I have to stand to do preacher curls. Not a big deal in my book and shouldn't be a big deal to anyone who has a curl bar. I personally found the preacher curl bar provided to be crap, but others may want to use it.
4. Using heavy dumbbells can make for some awkwardness with this bench. There's a lot going on and the seat is nice and big. All in all, that's a pro. However, when trying to kick your legs over the seat, with dumbbells in your hand, it can become a little awkward.
I haven't used the leg extension part yet, but my wife seems to like it a lot.
