it's a great home gym. the instructions are excellent until the last couple of steps. i had to read the entire set to decipher which pulleys are which. the "v" pulleys are obvious, but then there's the others. if you read the instructions carefully and look at the numbers of the pulleys, you'll discover that the two "spider-webbed" skinny pulleys go at the top. i've got brain damage, but i got it together in 4 hours....well, 3 hours. it takes a while to unload the box. i recommend laying out the parts before putting this thing together, i believe that it helped. also, don't open the screw packages until you need them. they are explicitly labeled. also, i recommend a flashlight for the back, bottom nuts on the cover. the only suggestion that i have for the gym is that there are two retainer pins over your head. if you do the butterfly excercise, there are two holes behind the center bar that the pins will sit comfortably in, otherwise, those pins will be brushing against your head and be annoying. i am extremely happy with this machine, but it is a workout to put together. i highly recommend this home gym. oh yeah, there is three different lengths of cables, just lay them out side by side and you can figure out the length. oh, and it calls for adjustable wrenches to assemble. i prefer wrenches....2 each...1/2, 9/16, and 5/8. it comes with the hex wrenches that you'll need (they are in the packaging with the nuts, bolts, and screws), but you'll also need a #2 phillips screwdriver. that's all. just pay close attention to the drawings in the instructions (the best drawings i've ever seen in building) and you'll do just fine
