None of the home gyms in that style are any good. Range of motion is too restricted, weight increments are too coarse, and total weight is too light eventually. Save your money and get a gym membership until you figure out what exercises you will actually use, and how.

If you want to invest in something, buy this:
Add on an olympic bar + plates, and a simple, sturdy bench, and you have a hugely versatile, useful workout station that can serve you from beginner to advanced stages.
EDIT: For full disclosure, I'm not sure if that particular cage that I linked above is any good, my point is that buying a quality cage similar to that one is a better investment.

Hmm.. very tempting. So your overall impression for fit/finish/quality is good? Bolt-together design I guess?

I also have this exact rack. I bought it about 5 months ago and use it 2-3 times a week. It definitely provides excellent value. I have read some negative reviews online about people not trusting it because it's: too cheap to be any good, not a known brand, cheap materials, etc, etc. but I think it's excellent for your average person's use.

Just a note about this particular rack. When I was researching racks I read a review about this rack and the issue that kept coming up was the width. It is 51" wide which can be an issue for some people because the sleeves of the bar come right up against the j hooks. For some it wasn't an issue because they just grab the bar closer in but some people complained that their bar didn't even fit onto the rack so they had to measure and then buy another bar. Just something to be aware of.Fire Man wrote: ↑Jan 16th, 2014 3:37 pmNot a bad unit.
There is a fitness store I found off the Allen and Finch in an industrial area that has great prices on power racks.
Initially, my wife ordered some equipment on ebay from them. She found out they were located in the GTA and right by my work. They have lots of professional grade equipment and better prices than the US I found. I paid $799 for a fairly basic power rack from fitness depot (Northern Lights brand) a few years ago.
