More Pro's then Con's

" Purchased this for use with the p90X programs and have some variety and options with the bands.
1) very sturdy and esthetically looks very well made. im about 190lbs and there is no give/bouncing while doing chin ups or using bands.
2) variety of exercise options worth the money
3)a bit time consuming but very straight forward set-up. a bit daunting opening box to see how many pieces there were but instructions pretty easy to follow.
Had a few issues with some of the screws not threading easily, but with a bit of force all worked in the end.
4)big unit for the small space that i'm using in, but fits in corner nicely.
5) fold away dip station is a nice option
1) Dip station is WAY to wide, makes for awkward dips that don't really isolate the triceps and there is a bit of "bounce" as you do them. ( believe this is due to the dip station being able to fold away so not as sturdy as rest of unit)
2)for wide grip pull ups, I find the handles are a bit to wide compared to the in door unit I was using before. perhaps just an adjustment for me but may want to keep in mind
3)Because of size and weight of the box, when delivered it looked like it had been tossed around quite a bit but luckily there weren't any issues when I opened it.
Overall it suits the needs that I wanted and compared to some units without the bands/pulley system it is a great unit for the price point. "

Solid workout machine

Pros: solid chip up bar, solid ab raiser, great bands
Cons: tricep dips bars are too far apart
" I bought this product to aid with the p90x routine. It was a better fit than I thought, I can do almost every exercise with the bands, the 25, 35 and 45 options also give me options. The chin up bar is solid, I weigh about 220 and it holds me no problem.
I did crack the base board but that's no big deal and probably my fault.
Highly recommend for p90 or any other work out routine. "

good not great

" Good quality product however I am 5' 1" and so some of the exercises are not possible for me to do just because the arm rest width is too wide. I do like the pulley system and the chin up bar is still o.k. I think this is great equipment for taller people (my husband is 6' 1" and he likes it fine) The biggest complaint is when delivered the box looked like it was drug behind the truck so some bolts were missing and to put this thing together took a while!

Great addition to the home gym

Pros: decently priced and convenient add on to any gym
Cons: none so far.
" Good quality product, easy to assemble, sturdy. Doesn't take much space (dip station folds away). Bought primarily to use for pull ups and dips - nice add-on to regular gym stations. Liked cables as well as muscles react differently to an exercises. "
