Home Multi Gym Review

If you are anything like my friend’s and hate stepping in a gym or cannot find the time to actually go then maybe it is time to consider a multi gym for your home, many multi gym’s nowadays for the the home can folded away compact and safe so don’t even take up much room, not only that many of the decent branded multi-gym’s incorporate nearly every exercise that you will need for your workout all from the comfort of your own home.

If you are currently in the market for a home multi gym, I have reviewed several of the best ones below, all with different prices and features, some of the more popular ones are listed below:

 Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym

The Bowflex PR1000 is a fantastic machine for increasing strength and even throws a little cardio into the mix as well, with over 30 exercises and even a rowing machine, there is up-to 210 pounds of resistance available although this is sadly not upgradeable as some exercises will soon become too easy, the machine comes as a ‘flat-pack’ when delivered meaning some assembly is required, this is easily taken care of in 2-4 hours maximum (depending how practical you are), and is a very well-made and sturdy machine, the manual itself that comes with the machine is very well thought out and very illustrative of what you need to do. The only issue you may find is the resistance does not feel as heavy as the weights tell you due to the setup of the machine, this may or may not bother you but I must tell you that doing an exercise on free weights and then on this machine is not the same weight-wise.

Overall a very good machine with a huge range of exercises available fort he discerning home gym fanatic, however if advancing up in weights, this machine cannot be upgraded and you will either have to purchase a better machine or join a gym.

Best Fitness BFMG20 Sportsmans Gym

The Best Fitness BFMG20 Sportsmans Gym is designed for building muscle and give a total body workout, one of the great features of the machine is the compact design for users looking to save some space, at 61lJJYd3awL._SL1000_only 79 inches tall, this unit will fit in many cellars or low-ceiling homes, upper and lower pulleys allow a multitude of exercises to be performed to challenge your whole body and give a thorough workout, the instructions for assembly are not the easiest in the world to follow and there are many individual little parts to put on, altogether assembly takes around 4 hours, another issue with the bfmg20 is the slight lack of space for most guys of average or above weight, it seems to have been designed with smaller framed women in mind, having said that, the range of exercises that can be performed along with the weight stack make this challenging enough for any beginner or home gym enthusiast.

Powerline BSG10X Home Gym, Short Assembly, 160-Pound Weight Stack

The BSG10X has been designed with space-saving and ease of assembly in mind, with only 9 bolts to assemble upon delivery the whole process can take as little as half an hour to put together, also being 6.5 foot tall and only 4 feet wide really helps aid space saving.

Some people even describe the quality as almost ‘gym-quality’ which attests to the manufacturers excellent build and quality control, this multi-gym fits in at mid-level and offers excellent value for money, the only criticism seems to be the lack of weights available on the stack more could be offered but this isn’t a problem as more can always be purchased to top it up.
