I'm a little dissapointed with this equipment for the cost. If I would have been more patient I could have bought a better machine for about half the cost. As far as the assembly of this equipment the instructions were terrible. I had to really do a lot of hard thinking to figure out what they wanted me to do and I had to take a couple of peices apart and redo them. Furthermore, there is no directions on how to tune the cables, ie, make adjustments. I would not recomend this equipment for future purchases, especially if you are bigger in stature. I am only 5' 6" and there is not much extra room for motion. It took me about six hours to assemble and hopefully I can get many years of use out of it. There are many other peices of equipment I will have to buy in order to get a good full body workout.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lyopitch The price is right
Overall, I am satisfied with the product. For that price it is very good. However, I did not buy it for myself: I did it for my 85-year old grandfather who still likes to exercise. After I assembled the gym in his appartment, I tried to see it would work for me. Here are my observation. Pros: 1. As mentioned, the price is good for the offered quality. 2. The quality is very decent. Looks and feels quite sturdy. 3. Takes exceptionally small space! 4. Not tall, so could fit any basement. 5. One person could assembly it without a help (good tools would come handy, though). 6. Does give you many exercise options. Cons: 1. It is designed for a smaller users: a) the rack maximal weight is only 160 lbs b) the range of motion for the chest press is short for me ( I am 5'9") 2. It took me 4 hours to assembly it, although I had assembled a lot of stuff before. 3. Parts are not labled, so I had put them backwards twice. 4. Leg curl is a little uncomfortable on this gym.
