Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 168 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Jordan Weight storage sheared off, replacement policy is poor. I do like the stand overall, but the very first time I put weights on the weight storage, one of the weight storage posts cracked and broke, dropping 60 pounds of weights to the floor. I can't get a replacement post without either (1) waiting up to 15 weeks for a replacement, or (2) disassembling the entire unit and exchanging it at the store. So just hope nothing breaks on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BradC All you need in a rack, at a fair price Was looking all over for the best fit for our basement. Needed functionality, but not junk or components that would break within a year. Picked up in store and box fit in my Passat with backseats down and passenger seat slid up. Assembly was quick, even by myself. I have been with a few gyms over the years: big, small, crossfit, etc.. NO, this is not a $1,500 - $3,000+ rack/rig that you will find in some of those places, but you wouldn't expect it to be for $350, right? The safety bars are made to be a last ditch effort for safety, NOT to do 500+ lb rack pulls or drop the bar repeatedly (get bumper plates).. but again, why would you expect that in this price range? The pull-up handles allow for a few different configurations, depending on how wide you want them. Rack is solid when properly assembled. All-in-all, I am quite happy with the purchase. This rack is well suited for a home gym. If you are benching 315 or less and squatting 455 or less, this will work just fine. If you plan on doing more than that, then spend the money on proper equipment. Get creative. You can replace a lot of unnecessary equipment that you use in the gym and work on true, FUNCTIONAL lifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EricNM Love this rack I bought this rack to basically replace my gym membership. I was paying 40 bucks a month for a membership that I hardly used. I have a very busy day and while spending an hour at the gym doesn't sound like a whole lot you still have to get ready, drive, work out, possibly wait for machines, and drive back. I didn't have the time to spend 1.5 to 2 hours of my day trying to stay healthy. I bought a fully adjustable bench and the 300 lb barbell and weight set made by this same company. NOW I can just workout at home, cut out the time waste by having to drive and wait on other people. I am back to being decently muscular and feeling good. I can challenge myself to failure knowing that even doing flat bench press I won't strangle myself because of the bottom guard rails. I love it. Would recommend it to anyone, easy to setup, very good price. Just don't cheap out on the bench or weight set. Invest in solid equipment and you will enjoy working out. October 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe Absolute best rack for the price. When it come to squat racks, I'm kind of obsessed. So believe me when I say that a rack like this could easily sell for $800 bucks and still be worth it. What makes this an unbelievable deal is that it comes standard with spotter arms, a multi grip pull up station, and weight plate storage. The only thing I would add is extra weight storage to each side, and an optional dip attachment. The j-hooks and spotter arms look as if they were prematurely removed from the molds used to cast them. This is a minor flaw however and could easily be fixed by grinding down the rough edges. The metal looks and feels slightly thin but I jumped on the spotter arms and the thing didn't even budge. I'm sure that it holds true to its 600-lb weight capacity. Also the storage pegs are far enough apart to hold commercial bumper plates. It cost me $1200 to buy a Rogue half rack with the exact same features. A rack like this will allow you to build a home gym with everything you need for well under $1000 bucks. December 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by w3s Great for the money First of all, the shipping of this item requires that you be in person to sign for it, so heads up to anyone looking to purchase. Aside from that, all of the parts arrived and in good condition. Out of the box, all of the instructions were clear enough to assemble the rack without any issues. For optimal results, you will need tools not included with the gear. Given that all the instructions are followed, you should not have any hardware remaining, and the rack should be fairly sturdy. Keep in mind, a half rack will be less stable in comparison to a full cage. Either way, it is stable enough for the applications for which I use this equipment. Accompanying the half rack, I have a 7 ft Olympic bar and 160 lbs worth of bumper plates. Given that bumper plates are all of the same diameter, I am only able to utilize the top and bottom storage posts on each side. However, this is to be expected, and normal Olympic plates should have plenty of room for storage on the six available posts. With the plates racked, it allows for additional weight and stability on the rack to perform pullups or attach a suspension training system to the horizontal support bar. I have this rack in my garage, and the ceilings are just high enough to accommodate pullups without putting my skull straight through the drywall. I would most certainly measure the space you are wanting to put the rack before ordering and assembling. This should go without saying, but for some, it helps to know. I would highly recommend utilizing some type of gym flooring in whatever area you place this rack, and it should definitely be on a flat, stable surface. If you are looking to put it in a carpeted area, it may work best on carpet with little to no padding. The shear weight of the rack will likely leave an impression in the carpet and pad that may be difficult to quickly reverse. Bottom line: this is a great product for the price, and I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to build up an affordable home gym. April 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ali You get what you pay for Bought this yesterday at Dicks in Orlando, at Father's day sale for $300. Took me about 3 hours to assemble. Assembly instructios were straightforward and easy to follow. All the hardware was complete, and nicely packed. Here is what I found during assembly and testing:1) Metal is of a low quality, and bent easily. Do not tighten the screws all the way or you will put a dent in the metal.2) Some pieces were scratched with tiny dents, and paint was uneven in some places.3) This rack is ok if you are not a power lifter, or don't lift too heavy. For me the heaviest I press is 315 in bench. I think the weakest point are the bar hooks. They rattle a lot if you slam heavy bar on them. 4) I found the rack to be more stable if I store plates on the storage bars. This makes the rack feel sturdier.5) Rack is too wide. So be careful when you re-rack the barbell after finishing your set of bench press. You may miss one side, and barbell will be sitting uneven.6) Good deal for $300. What more can I expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lifter15 Great rack This is all around a great quality piece of lifting equipment, for a great price too. The adjustment pieces are very quick and easy to move and are very sturdy when in place. I have dropped 405 on squat and the spotting bars didn't even budge. I saw one review that said the rack tips when doing pull ups, but when I do pull ups the rack doesn't tip at all, even if I start swinging a little bit get my last rep in. Also, I recommend to get a bench to put under it. this is a great rack that gives you a great full body workout and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality rack for a cheap price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sleepingweasal Good Rack Awesome half rack, don't buy the full rack if you're looking for something at home. This half rack holds 600 pounds, the same as the full rack model. Why pay more money? I've been using it at home since I got it, it's very sturdy, and it looks good too. It doesn't look as ugly as some other home fitness products up may find. I'm 5'7" and the pull up bars are at a perfect height, I don't have to jump to reach them, nor fall several inches to get off. December 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by McCrank Unless You're Elite Level Powerlifter at 275+ This thing is perfect It's inexpensive but not cheap. Requires assembly but it's well made. The only thing I would like to see (and the ONLY reason for the four star rating instead of five) is the "Pro Dip Bars" for purchase. I can't find them anywhere. And I want them. I'm currently buying the bar storage and the band peg attachments. I need me some dip bars so I don't have to spend money for stands I don't have room for. BTW I'm a tall lifter with over a 300# bench, over a 400# squat/deadlift. This thing handles the weight just fine. January 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ika88 Half Rack review I barely have time to get on internet blogs, forums, etc......but I have to say that this purchase was the best investment I've made in my health, apart from a mountain bike I got a few years back. What a great rack set up for a home gym --- I purchased two 4x6 floor mats from the local tractor supply company, the horse stall mats kind, and I am ready to rip! Quality is great, easy time to set up - did it myself in about 2 hours, and it look really nice with the white, grey and orange detail. HIGHLY recommended! The sales associates said she'd purchase this one instead of the full rack --- I was ready to go for the full rack, but really, this is nice and compact and can handle some good weight.
