I decided to buy this product because I'm making my home gym. This product will complete my home gym.
The product arrived early. The driver, which is also the attendant, helped me moving this thing into our house. (I thought it was going to be left on the curb and I am the one who's going to move it alone inside the house). After inspecting the box for any flaw, I signed the paper and opened it immediately.
I was really scared because I have read lots of reviews here where they got the box with missing parts. But luckily, I got a box with the whole/complete parts.
Before you assemble this, you'll need a GOOD READER if you are not and GOOD INSTINCT.
I assembled it alone which took me one-two hours more. Assembling looks like hard but read the manual CAREFULLY and you'll be done early. DO NOT RELY ON PICTURES. I made lots of mistakes because I used the pictures as a manual and didn’t read some parts when assembling. The parts of the product (like cable, handle, etc) were not labeled correctly (except the nuts, bolts and washers). You'll need to figure out yourself which is what and which is which. But not really a big deal. Just use instinct (here, you can rely on pictures in the manual). ALL EXERCISE CHART ARE THE SAME. READ THE WHOLE THING! Look at the lower part of the Chart exercise. This are the exact words: " This poster shows a selection of exercises that can be perform using GOLD'S GYM weight system. Note that weight system may not have all the features shown on the poster..." So it means that you can only perform some exercises on the chart. Dont think that you got a wrong chart.
DONT COMPLAIN. Look at the price. You wont get any perfect product (perfect welding, paint, etc) for a cheap price. LOOK DOESNT MATTER. WHAT DOES MATTER IS YOU CAN USE THE PURPOSE. If you want good quality buy some $1000 plus home gym. For sure, you wont get any complain. Yes, It is a bit noisy because of the bumps between the combined tubes in the weight stack. HEY!! Gym's are noisier than this. Not a big deal..
The resistance are different in evry exercise station. For instance, you're doing a high pulley exercise with 1 weight stack. That is about 18 pounds which changes when you do a low pulley exercise. It becomes 46 pounds. Yes, you cant perform some of the exercises in the low pulley because of the high resistance (heaviness). But if you've been working out for a long time you will figure out some other exercises. For beginners, SEARCH the web for exercises...
All in all I am satisfied. I am just hoping that this product will last long because I am going to use this 5-6 times a week and in advance mode (heavy load). I really recommend this product to every one. Buy this product if you love/like working out and in tight budget, and dont if you are stagy and looking at the looks not the purposes, uses and performance.
