Worth the money for those who want to exercise but have limited funds.
Box arrived slightly damaged, but contents were all there.
Being mechanically inclined, it took me just under two hours to assemble with the help of my 12 yr old son. Some say it can take up to 15 hrs to assemble.
The weights only add up to 81lbs. But with the resistance of the cables and pulley setup, you can achieve the 215lb rating. I am a slender tall male, who is toned, but completely out of shape. I max out with 5 of the seven weights.
The lower pulleys for legs and preacher curls has twice the resistance than the upper body bench press or lateral bar portion. Not sure why this is, but I'm not complaining.
It does everything that I want to work on, and my two boys seem to like it also. Only other negative, is it needs a heavier base. Doing leg curls it can lift the front of the machine off the ground. Not enough to cause a tip over, but enough to make you second guess doing it again.
You do have to keep in mind,
It's not a professional gym system, but compared to some gym membership prices, I went this route, and so far, money well spent.
So for the entry level, or somewhat experienced weight lifter, or someone who just wants to get into better shape...... yes, I'd recommend this system.
