|G6B - G6B - 3 / 5|
|I am 6 foot tall and, even with the seat in the lowest position, when doing the shoulder press the hand grips bang together well before my arms are extended. 6 foot is not particularly tall and I would have expected that any multigym would cater for someone that tall. I called customer services to see if there was any way to adjust the biangular settings and was told that I should have tried out this exercise before buying the machine.....not very helpful or practical as there are many, many exercises on the machine and it would not be feasible to try them all before buying. If I join a gym I do not insist on trying every piece of equipment before joining......I expect that the equipment will be suitable for people of normal size.|
|SFID325 - SOLID BENCH-DON'T BUY FOR DECLINE - 3 / 5|
|This is a well constructed, stable bench. It works well for flat and incline movements and is easily moveable with the convenient wheels. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BENCH FOR DECLINE BENCH, ETC. THE PADS ARE VERY SLICK AND THERE IS NOT A WAY TO HOLD YOUR FEET IN PLACE SO IT IS DANGEROUS TO DECLINE BENCH-YOU WILL SLIP OFF THE END!|

|I have had this home gym a year now and I am very satisfied with it. I am in the best shape of my life|
|BSTMB - Lasted 6 months - 1 / 5|
|I ordered these Medicine Balls through Sports Authority for the High School I work at. I always try to order products that last and these being on the commercial side of the Body Solid web page looked like a great buy. Well I was wrong. 5/6 of the medicine balls I have ordered have all split. I followed all directions, I made sure each med ball had the correct amount of air. I have medicine balls that are still good that have been used 7 years now. I called Sports Authority and they said it is past the 30 day return policy so it is up to Body solid to warranty the product. I called Body Solid and the gentleman told me to go back to Sports Authority and he can not do anything. He proceeded to tell me they sell a lot of medicine balls. I will not order these medicine balls again, the kettle bells are nice but now with the customer service I have witnessed, I will not be ordering my second set of kettlebells from them either.
Inclosing, stay away from these, they are not commercial grade.
|GLM83 - Good Machine, but..... - 4 / 5|
|This is a very well built machine and I'm sure it will last a long time. The only real problem I see is the assembly instructions, in reality you could say there are none. It is just a diagram with part numbers. A non mechanical person would most likely have issues. A few sentences with step by step instructions I think would help greatly. Other than that I think my family will love it.|
|P1X - Very Good Home Gym - 4 / 5|
|Does all the exercises I want and more. It's smooth working and relatively noiseless. Customer service has been a pleasure work with.|
|GFID71 - Yup, that'll do it. - 2 / 5|

|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.
