Maybe that's why it's twice the price...

Not bad. Cheaper than a years gym membership. 90kg resistance is enough for most Persians

As if you could do the same workout on this as you could in a gym, these things are a waste of money and space.

Probably more of these gathering dust in garages throughout the land than in the Argos warehouse ......(_;)

Only 90kg, fine if you're a grandmother of 8 I guess.

Id personally recommend a gym membership over this, £200 is more than a years membership at my gym and you get a hell of a lot of equipment. However, if anyone really wants home equipment, id recommend only ever buying a power rack or a heavy duty bench rack. These multi-gyms are jack of all trade master of none.

A friend tried to warn me that I'd not use mine but of course I didn't listen and now I've lost the use of my 3rd bedroom lol
If I had to do it again, I'd probably go for something like this, which I can fold away.

I'd only consider this type of kit if was being added to an existing home gym. Free weights/bodyweight are better than this.

I have one of these (its been half price since they introduced it about 4 months ago, to replace a similar previous version).

As far as i can tell its pretty good. No, its not the same quality as the individual type machines at the gym, but what are you expecting for probably 10% of the price.

Its solidly made for a home gym of this type it has a decent amount of weight (i believe they do a cheaper version which has about half the amount, which on reflection wouldnt have been enough for some exercises).

Putting it together took about 3 hours and despite not saying so in the instructions was made considerably easier with a socket set. The cable is very slightly slack meaning the range of movement for some exercises isn't huge but on the other hand the results so far are good.

I accidentally put the weights on back to front - with the pin facing the seat rather than out the back. its easily done and is one of the first things in the process and pretty much impossible to remedy once its all together without taking it all apart again. This means you can't put the big metal cover on it. On the other hand it also means you can turn around in the seat and change the weight, rather than getting off and going round the back - personally i prefer this, but it has left the huge metal cover sitting in the garage..

Anyway, personally for my situation it works - My father has just retired and lives alone in the 3 bedroom 'family' home. 1 Bedroom is now the 'gym' with this taking up most of the space along with an exercise bike and a weights bench. Having the space to put it is obviously a major factor - its huge and you dont want it taking up space in your own bedroom.

I go round twice a week to use it and as an excuse to see how he's doing. It's early days but im enjoying it and unlike the gym its always available and there arent beefcakes standing there judging my puny muscles ;)

Its also a benefit to him as it gives him a way to keep in shape in his own time doing exercises that have a limited range of movement - considerably better than him dropping freeweights on his chest when theres no one around to help.

Summary: I'm happy with it, but i guess my situation is relatively unusual.
