The directions were easy to read and follow. I built it myself and it took 4 hours. The tricky part is doing the cable and pulleys. This is where most of the time is spent. The machine has a weight stack that is 120 pounds but using it with this pulley system increases the tension weight. For example if you have it set on six weights the pounds are 60 but the tension would be 168lbs. So you don't need a ton of weights the pulley system works fantastic. Great engineering. A must buy for the price.
I've had this "Gym" for 1.5 years. I weigh in at 160 lbs male and consider myself moderate at workouts. The metal frame that holds the seat to the frame bent and snapped off at the welds (could of been serious hurt). Contacted weider they told me they couldn't do anything for me but could sell me the part for $150. I paid less than $400 for the whole gym. Called sears they said it past the 90 day warranty, noting they could do. Sooo If you intend on actually using this gym, and it really is only good for a few exercises (mainly the bench). Be prepared for shotty workmanship that nobody will back after 90 days. Next time I will get a bowflex they actually stand behind there products. Good luck..
Stuck in the Whirlpool of Mainstream Diets?
If you struggle to lose weight or continue to pack on pounds, then hear this:
It’s NOT your fault.
That’s right…contrary to popular opinion—and what the media and medical community will
probably tell you—there is a strong chance you are not to blame for those extra pounds.
There is something else you need to know:
You are NOT alone.
The majority of dieters fail to keep off a single pound, and the average American dieter makes 4-6 dieting attempts per year. One study even concluded that 95% of severely overweight dieters gained back every pound within 3 years.
Most likely, there are several reasons you’ve struggled to lose weight in the past, and my experience tells me that you fall into one or more of 5 categories.
See those 5 categories here in this short presentation >> https://bit.ly/2wti4tr
One of the most common issues is lacking an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan of action tailored personally for you.
