Reviews from Amazon:
|G10B - One happy 48yr old - 5 / 5|
|I was a previous 12 year bow flex owner and decided it was time to upgrade my machine.
After looking at bow flex and doing intensive research, i kept coming back to the G10b and dove in and made the purchase.
It was the best decision of my home fitness life.
I love it, a solid built machine with many exercise options that brings a smile to my face every time.
If you can swing it, the GLP leg press, floor mats and aluminum pulleys are well worth the investment.
Instructions are pretty straight forward, it took me two days.
The only thing i would change is i would pay the extra money for installation (my exercise room is upstairs).
Thank you Body Solid and a special thanks to Scott in customer service.
|BFPR10 - Solid Squat Rack - 4 / 5|
|I squat 150 LBS or less, as I am a 5"9" endurance athlete. With that in mind...I find this is a well made rack, and the powder coated finish looks great. At 74 LBS it does not move. It has 4'' liftoffs and 7" safety's which are surfaced with rubber pads. I find the 7 possible positions for the liftoffs/safeties are adequate for my use.
I've seen a review where the rubber pads on the liftoffs came off after a few lifting sessions but this has not been the case for me.
I was concerned that the horizontal bar would interfere with squats. It does not, I do not step over it, but instead stand close to it, facing the bar.
However, the horizontal bar at the bottom is mounted a little high, so it can interfere with some benches. I don't use a bench with this rack so it is not an issue. You may want to buy this first and then buy a bench (which you probably already have).
After a session of Russian Dead Lifts, for example, I place my weight bar on the safeties to keep the bar off the floor and out of the way.
I did have to assemble it, but easily did so in less than 30 minutes.
I give it 5 stars if the horizontal bar were not in the front of the rack.
|BSG10X - POWERLINE BSG10X - 1 / 5|
|Lets start with the leg extension post,its to long it keeps the rear legs off the grown which makes the BSG10X unstable. The press arm pivot and press arm bracket are not level to the frame.|
|PSM1442XS - 1442XS - 5 / 5|
|I use to own this pro smith gym when I lived up north but had to sell it when I moved. It was the best piece of equipment I ever bought for working out with. I had a small like 8X10 room and it just fit, was always a squeeze to move the bench out of the way to do rowing exercises, but I made it work. I loved it. It, like all smith machines self spots you, so that when you just can't make that last rep, you can safely get out from under the bar without it crushing your windpipe or chest. With the low and high pulleys you can do almost any kind of cable work you want. The only draw back to most women (myself included) was that the pec dec was too far out in front of the back support. It is fine for 200 pound men but we who are of smaller proportions just can't safely/comfortably move the arms without straining (again because of the position of them away from the back cushion). Other than that it is a fine piece of equipment and will serve you well for years and years
|BFCT1 - BFCT1 "Great Machine" - 5 / 5|
|I have been working out for more than 45 years and the BFCT1 is a great machine for cardio fitness. Reasonably priced, Small compact size, no impact-easy on the joints, gives me a very good workout. Usually do 30 minutes in the morning on the machine. Not as hi-tech as some of the machines I have used, but that's OK, I don't need all the bells & whistles, just a good workout.|
|GLP - Great attachment for the G5S! - 5 / 5|
|Recently bought this as an addition to my G5S - very pleased. Fantastic for leg/calf presses. Same commercial grade construction. Easily assembled (compared to the G5S). The 2X leverage means the 210lb weight stack feels like 420lb ... more than enough weight!
Note: You can attach this leg press on either the left or right hand side! (Also, the G5S can only support one add-on as there is only one tie-in to the existing weight stack.)
|G5S - Great home gym - even better customer service! - 5 / 5|
|Bought this G5S a couple of months ago and recently added the leg press GLP attachment. Thoroughly impressed with the quality of the components and overall equipment. This is definitely commercial grade equipment. Very pleased with my purchase.
Also very happy with the service - which is good as they promise. Real live people to speak and they delivered on their warranty promise. I had a couple of odds and ends that either were missing, and in 2 cases, broke during assembly (imagine a big monkey with a large hammer and a few hundred parts). Body Solid happily and quickly shipped the replacement parts. No cost, no fuss. Happy customer.
