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.

   
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.

   
Does all the exercises I want and more. It's smooth working and relatively noiseless. Customer service has been a pleasure work with.

   
Yup, that'll do it. You have my apeoaciptirn.

   

Reviews from Amazon:


   
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.

   
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.

   
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.

   
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

   
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.)
