First of all Sears did not notify me when it arrived for pick-up. I had to go to them. The instructional diagrams are difficult to follow, as parts are not labeled, as they are when putting together a purchased bookshelf. The lever for moving the shoulder rests is difficult to impossible for someone with little hand strength. Had to loosen the bolts, and still can just budge it with much effort. The details before purchasing did not make clear that it uses weights with 2" centers, so need to purchase weights, and oddly cannot find 50 lbs, only 50 and 100. Otherwise, expect this to be helpful, and much safer for a 79 yr old man and 55 yr old woman than lifting a bar overhead to do squats.
