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.

   
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

   
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.

   
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
