An Informative Home Gym Review
There are several well-known manufacturers of home gyms worth mentioning. While all have their advantages and disadvantages, the following home fitness gyms are particularly noteworthy. The reviews will focus on the universal gyms that the companies manufacture.
Weider Home Gyms ReviewThe Weider Crossbar (formerly called the Crossbow) is a universal gym that uses sturdy but bendable bows to create resistance. The range of resistance is from 5 pounds to 240 pounds, with an available upgrade that increases the amount of resistance to 440 pounds. The Weider Crossbar sells for around $500.
Pros: The Weider Crossbar is relatively inexpensive and has a wide range of exercises that it can be used for.
Cons: It takes a long time to put together and some of the suggested exercises are uncomfortable and impractical.
Gold's Gym Home Gyms Review
Pros: The Power Flex includes a rowing station, is capable of doing 65 different exercises, and folds to fit in a 2'by 3' space.
Cons: It is difficult to adjust the resistance level and the manufacturers provide poor customer service.
Tuff Stuff Home Gyms Review
Cons: It is large and relatively hard to move. There was no mention of any way to add resistance to the CFM-555.
Hoist Home Gyms Review
Pros: The Multi Gym H-100 is well constructed and durable. It has a multitude of possible exercises and a sleek, space saving design.
Cons: It is expensive and there is no way to add resistance beyond the single weight stack.
Marcy Home Gyms Review
Pros: The MWM 1800 is a good value for its price and fits in a corner.
Cons: There was only a 50-pound resistance add-on mentioned and the MWM is difficult to assemble.
Powerhouse Home Gyms Review
Pros: The PH-1300 can have as much as 500 pounds added to it. It is inexpensive and relatively lightweight.
Cons: The weights must be bought separately and the cables that hold the weights break easily.
Any of the products mentioned in the home gyms review could be a good choice for consumers looking to exercise at home. People who are looking to do light exercise could choose a smaller, inexpensive and less complex home gym, while people who are fully committed to build strength would be better advised to buy a larger home gym with more features. The main point to keep in mind is that there is a home gym on the market for everyone.
