Don't do it. Buy a set of weights.

According to the Q&A it only has a resistance of 29kgs, Thats a lot of metal taking up clothes space for just 29kgs.

Guaranteed to loose pounds with this, a hundred and six of em....

I dunno why, but it reminded me of this:

bar,
I echo your statement. You wont get much results, from this little amount of weight.
Buy a bench, bar and weights. So much more versatile, and you can always add to it.

Buy some cast iron dumbells, a bar, and a pull up bar to go above a door frame. Not only will they take up far less room, they'll be cheaper, last forever and can be upgraded in weight with plates from ebay.

This is total overkill for a beginner, and not worth it for someone who's been training a while. Also you'll need a whole room to house it.

This would be ok for someone starting out, those with mobility issues or if you have a lifting restriction. However you would in all likelihood outgrow this fairly quickly, probably within 3-6 months.

I won't go brodude because no one likes that guy, but you might be better investing in some free weights and a decent book that gives you step by step help. Jim Stoppani is brilliant and has a free app etc, it's great for men and woman. I also really like the book "how to lift like a goddess" which has some excellent plans as well as nutrition.

Either way good luck!

I'd add to the above: check out scoobysworkshop

It's that rarest of rare things, a totally free website that isn't trying to sell you supplements and unrealistic 'get a six-pack in 7 days' routines.

"This website is for those who want to look great and feel great. Anyone … "This website is for those who want to look great and feel great. Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time. My focus here is on workouts the natural bodybuilder can do at home with inexpensive equipment. Don’t be fooled, home workouts do not mean easy workouts and they can be just as effective as the gym. This site is FREE and there are no “members-only” sections or newsletters to buy, its my way of giving back to the sport that has given me so much. I don’t encourage the use of any supplements or the purchase of any new equipment, you can build a fantastic physique with just a cheap used set of dumbbells."

Ok for a woman that wants to tone up, thats about all its good for...

Not sure what you mean... Need more input

Maximum height of users just over 6 feet ? Jesus that's pretty rough.

To be honest, you might be better off investing in a gym membership. There are some around for less than £20 in my area, which would get you nearly 6 months for the price of this.

The quality of equipment there would be far better than this. Be careful though, a lot of gyms have a minimum term, so don't commit to it if your not going to use it frequently! I pay £63 for my membership and try to go three times a week to make it cost effective.

NUMBER 5 IS ALIIIIIIIVEEE

Bear in mind when you come to sell Jonny 5 you will need to disassemble. For the sake of Pete consider free weights.

what a bargain!

A month. David Lloyd. Tried various gyms in my area and this is by far the best! Although, you would expect so at this price. I used to pay £19.99 at a previous place.

Took me a while to convince the wife!! lol.

29 Kgs? Sounds like it'd be good for a single arm lateral raise.

Bought something similar a few years ago. Realised when it was unpacked that it was flimsy and took it back to face stand up argument from sales assistant that the packaging was damaged and therefore the could'nt refund. After arguing with her and the manager, how can you see what the quality is without unpacking and the packaging wouldn't fit neatly back together, finally got refund. Never again.

And it has a built in mini ironing board.

Seriously though, this is a waste of money. Buy a set of dumbbells

Probably a mistake and meant to be actual weight of 29kg translating to 59kg resistance due to the way the weight is lifted through the gyms mechanism.

But definitely something I'd clear up before even considering buying though for anyone interested. As I'd agree that a resistance of 29kg isn't going to get you very far at all and not worth the size and cost of the gym. 59kg on the other hand is ok.

Personally I just use dumbbells, but I do like my friends multi gym for chest flys and his is 65kg resistance.

This is a really big piece of metal for not much weight. Better to advise this isn't good than say nothing. Anyway, deal gets some heat from me!

I suspect 59kg or so is correct - likely it has a weight stack of around 29kg, but a lot of moves will move the weights double the distance of your movement, giving an effective resistance of double that.
So likely you can do a 59kg bench press, pull down etc - which shouldn't take too long for your typical bloke to reach, but may take a while for women to push past.

However, I'd still suggest free weights if you can - though you typically can't hang the longer clothes from them like you can from this option :).

While we are on this, can someone recommend a set of dumbells? max 20kg each as I lost everything

Presuming you want dumbbells with chanable plates, I'd start with freecycle, then second normal second hand places for a metal set (though you can generally manage 20kg with vinyl just about too - but I'd go for metal if paying).
20kg is 20kg if you paid a fiver for a set of £180.

29KG???

Wowzers... I thought the £35 gym my mate is bugging me to join was too much. I hope they run you a nice bubble bath after each visit.I pay £20 currently like you used to, it's hard to move on when it offers everything I need for that kind of money.

Edited by: "AceRimmer15" 19th Apr

The only person that gets a workout from these deals is the postman.

Not a single person has realised it is 59kg lift from 29kg weights....pulleys provide a negative advantage.
Also free weights are great for the fully abled person but dangerous otherwise. this type of gym (not aimed at professionals) is ideal for building muscle tone after an injury etc
Its horses for courses people!
