Rated 5 out of 5★ by BmoreFinest Solid and does what it is supposed to do. The equipment arrived ahead of schedule. All the packaging and materials were in good condition. Probably took me 5 hours to put together and another hour or two to unpackage and organize the materials for assembly. I used marker labeled styrofoam cups to organize all the pieces. Very solid. I'm 245 lbs and everything holds me and my weights with no problem. With wd40 the guide rails and pulleys all work exactly how they should. Not the noisiest but could be quieter and could be smoother but is not bad for either. It is not perfectly as smooth as gym quality BUT it is equally functional and smooth enough to not make it feel any different for performing the exercise. Excellent value. This and some item/ plan for cardio is all you need. I'm 6'3" and the fly, leg extension, and hamstring curl are no problems for me. I can even do forced reps on my pullups by using the smith bar to step on while getting extra pullups in. I love this item and would recommend it to any home fitness enthusiast who is focused on function and not fancy (eventhough I think it looks great too). I'm a huge fan. 03/24/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Oman3D good for a serious workout I love this work at set I can work on it with ease. it's easy for me to get a good workout all the pieces work will for tall person. I'm 6'3" 250 pounds and it works well with me. I guess the only downside is it took five plus hours to put together but I was kind of expecting it. 04/10/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by CollegeStudent00 For the Money Great Machine for a Home Gym Workout I lucked out, I bought this item from Wal-Mart at $589.99 free shipping, and I just had to pay for taxes and freight. For a total of $706 I am very pleased. The item came sooner than the expected delivery date. Comparable prices are much higher actually. Even Sears has the Marcy Smith SM-4008 model advertised as $589 but has a hidden fee of $233 dollars in addition.Ultimately I am pleased not just with the purchase price, but with the quality of the home gym. The machine came in 3 heavy boxes. There were a whole lot of parts at first, I admit I was intimidated, but several hours later I had most of the frame and structure assembled. (I had a lot of fun putting it together, and surprisingly my hamstrings--leg muscles-- were worn out.)The only difficult part was the pulley system assemblage. For those steps in the instructions I needed a friend to help me see what I wasn't seeing in the instructions. At first glance the instructions do not make sense, but in the end all the parts come together and work properly.The home gym comes with a bar to be used specifically for the bench press. You can purchase an additional Olympic bar at your own expense, which I almost did, but the home gym came complete minus the weights. It is set up for either Olympic weights or smaller cement weights.Oh and the tools, parts and pieces were organized by numbers. I was very much impressed by the organization of the instructions and parts to be used. Everything you see in the picture is included in the purchase. I am referring to the attachments needed for the pulley system/ cables. 11/07/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by SillySammie Excellent machine for home use. Excellent workout machine for the value. Easy to build and use. I also bought a 300lBs Olympic weight set, for which this machine accommodates very well. The wall chart that comes with it is very nice and easy to read. Delivery time was much better then I expected. No pain no gain is the motto and this machine for sure does both. I would recommend this product to both young and old, those tying to build muscle and bulk up or just to stay in shape. A very well rounded machine. 12/02/2013
