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
The most popular Gold's Gym home gym is the Power Flex. This is a universal gym that uses flexible bows to provide resistance. The maximum resistance is 210 pounds, with an available add-on that increases the maximum to 410 pounds. The price range for the Power Flex is between $500 and $900.

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
The CFM-555 is the best-known home gym made by Tuff Stuff. This is a universal gym with a single weight stack. The CFM-555 sells for around $1200.Pros: The CFM-555 features easily operated range of motion device, a contoured seat back that is functional and comfortable, and a wide range of possible exercises.

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
The Hoist Multi Gym H-100 is a well-respected high-end universal gym with a suggested retail price of $1500. The Multi Gym H-100 features a single weight stack.

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
The Marcy MWM 1800 has dual 100 pound weight stacks to allow two people to exercise at once. It has the capability of doing over 20 different exercises. The Marcy MWM 1800 retails for about $400.

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
The Powerhouse PH-1300 is a mix between a universal gym and a free weight home gym. It has the set up of a universal gym, but the user has to supply the weight rack. It costs about $350 plus the costs of weights.

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.

Conclusion:

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.
