|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.
|G3S - Versatililty & Quality - 5 / 5|
|I shopped extensively for a home gym and through tireless experience and comparison chose the G3S by Body Solid. One of my concerns was the availability of a 210 lb. weight stack. The G3S is a 160 lb. machine but can be increased to 210 lb. by purchasing the SP50 which is an extra 5 plates. The G3S comes with enough labels to label up to 210 lbs. of plates. The gym arrived in 6-7 boxes on a skid. Three large boxes and 4 small boxes containing the weight plates. Assembly takes better part of a day followed by tuning. The instruction manual is excellent. This gym is awesome, I love it. I gave up my Olympic bench and weights and purchased this machine so my wife would also be able to work out. She loves it which is a great relief. It looks awesome in the work out room and I find myself gravitating to it all of the time to exercise.|

I want to share with everyone the fantastic experience I had purchasing gym equipment from Tony Spoto at "The Bench Press." Tony is a real professional with exceptional integrity and great knowledge in the business.
|EXM3000LPS - Bodybuilding.com Home Gym review - 4 / 5|
Clearly the highest price tag of all the pieces in this report, but worth the money based on convenience alone. If you aren't interested in lugging plates around and loading them on all your machines, then this piece is definitely for you.
This machine has duel weight stacks, each being 210 pounds. However, the calf raise and leg press station works off of a 2:1 weight ratio which allows the resistance to go up to 420 pounds. Just like above, this machine also handles 2 users at the same time. The size of this piece is about the same as the Powertec Workbench.
This piece of equipment is built very well and of great quality. The padding on this piece has the same Body-Solid standard on all their pieces-being very comfortable and durable. This piece has a very natural and comfortable feel when in use.
Biomechanically, this piece is amazing. With so many pin positions, you can tweek this piece to hit the muscle exactly the way it needs to be worked.
|SBL460P4 - Bodybuilding.com Home Gym review - 4 / 5|
Here is another piece similar to the Powertec Workbench above. This piece is another plate-loaded machine which has many of the features of the Powertec above but without some of the extra stations. For the value, I rank it second because of the lack of versatility compared to the product above. However, don't get me wrong-this Body-Solid Leverage Gym is definitely on the list of must have's if you are tight on space and still want to get a piece that can pretty much do it all.
The piece itself is of very high quality and very durable. The pads are comfortable when working out and are tear resistant. Just like above there are no pulleys to worry about so this piece is maintenance free. This machine can only have 2 users at once whereas the piece above you can get up to 3 so that is one thing that you'll want to keep in mind. If you are training by yourself or with a buddy/spouse/sibling/whoever, this piece would work just fine for your needs.
Overall, this is another piece worth looking into if you are looking for a home gym that doesn't take up a lot of space, yet gives you everything you need to hit every body part. Even though you are paying a little more for this piece compared to the Powertec Workbench, this is still a great buy for any household.
|GDCCBAR - Great for certain exercises, but a few weaknesses - 4 / 5|
|I've owned this attachment for my GDCC200 cross-functional trainer for about a year. It enables many exercises (e.g., lat pulls, barbell curls, rows, squats, deadlifts, shoulder shrugs, etc.) that otherwise can't be done with the machine. The bar is very solid/good quality. My only two gripes are 1) the stitching in the straps that secures the attachment rings tears over time, and 2) the bar is not wide enough when the ring attachment closest to the bar is used to secure the bar to the machine (I think the bar length was designed with the narrower GDCC200 model in mind). Both of these issues lead to premature wearing of the straps. So why a four-star review...? Because one call to Body Solid's customer service center and they are sending new straps via their incredible lifetime warranty!
The only exercise that I've found a little misleading in the advertisements (not the bar's fault, but rather a limitation of the CFT's design) is squats. It's simply unrealistic to start a squat with any significant weight in the fully tucked position necessary to put the bar on your shoulders/back with the pulleys near the floor to create vertical resistance (free-weight and machine squats all begin with one standing upright). But otherwise, all exercises are as you'd imagine/as-advertised.
I do love this attachment and use it regularly. If the stitching was stronger and the bar was a few inches wider, I'd give it four stars, but given the lifetime warranty, I'm not terribly concerned and would highly recommend this accessory to others.
