I shopped extensively for a home gym and through tireless experience and comparison chose the G3S by Body Solid. One of my concerns was the availability of a 210 lb. weight stack. The G3S is a 160 lb. machine but can be increased to 210 lb. by purchasing the SP50 which is an extra 5 plates. The G3S comes with enough labels to label up to 210 lbs. of plates. The gym arrived in 6-7 boxes on a skid. Three large boxes and 4 small boxes containing the weight plates. Assembly takes better part of a day followed by tuning. The instruction manual is excellent. This gym is awesome, I love it. I gave up my Olympic bench and weights and purchased this machine so my wife would also be able to work out. She loves it which is a great relief. It looks awesome in the work out room and I find myself gravitating to it all of the time to exercise.
Body Solid is great
I bought a body solid G3S machine and am very pleased with it. Most exercise equipment is designed to be used for 3 months before it is turned into a clothing rack, and then donated. Not Body Solid. They are built solid.
My body solid G3S is built to last. Solid machine, ball bearing pulleys, solid construction. And the company is wonderful. They have gone above and beyond to help me. I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for exercise equipment.
