I bought this product mainly for the chin-up bar. I have been using the P90X of infomercial fame and wanted to have a sturdy chin up bar for me and my husband - who weighs 240. This power tower is very sturdy. It does not feel cheap in any way. My husband uses it and was surprised that it did not "give" during use. He did say however that the dip bar felt a little shaky, but that he did not feel unsafe. I put it together myself using only a screwdriver, a crescent wrench, and another wrench (I forget the size, but all of the bolts were the same). It took about 1.5 hours, but my two year old was helping and I was chatting on the phone for at least a half hour while I was working on it. My husband did come in later with a drill to tighten up all the bolts. It does not stand very tall, which is nice for lower ceilings. I am 5'9" and I cannot hang from the chin up bar completely - I have to bend my knees. High quality product. Definitely worth the money.
