BSG10X - Sears.com Review
By nativesf - San Francisco, CA
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
I am a woman in my 50's starting out weight training for the first time in years.. Since my 30's I have only done cardio (treadmill, bike, elliptical at home). Haven't been to a gym since then, and at my age, even though I look good, there's mostly younger people there. I really did like the weights I did back then when I did go to the gym, so I found this on the Sears website and snapped it up. I like this machine better than the Weider I was going to get. The seat and back is movable so you can adjust it. I am 5'4.
The pluses: Great varied workout that gives your body a total workout. Compact in size. Smooth moving parts. The attached arms do a good job of giving you different workouts. Nice looking machine.
The minuses: had to get Sears store to send an installer to put it upstairs - delivery is only to your door (get them to put it in your house on the main floor or in your garage).
Scratches all over the machine - they gave me paint, but it didn't cover up very good.
Seat was not installed properly and had to call Sears again and have it redone.
If you have a significant other, get him to put it together and make sure all parts are on. The installers didn't do this.
Overall: I would definitely purchase this machine again because after using it for 2 weeks, I am already getting in shape, in 4 months I hope to be where I want to be looking and feeling and will maintain it. I do upper exercises one day with cardio, the next day I do lower exercises with cardio. I feel great!!!"
