[Amazon.ca] Bowflex BodyTower - $169.00

Pulled the trigger on this and it arrived - excellent build quality. Arms are adjustable, so you get a wide variety of options for exercises.

Matches lowest-ever CCC.

Another option, to save a few dollars for a competing brand:

The Weider Tower is slightly taller (extra half-foot), so may be an option if you are taller. That said, it is much less adaptable to the Bowflex and there are fewer options for exercises and customizability.

Meh, over priced for what it is. The Weider one is cheaper. Can probably find a used one on Kijiji for half that as well. ** or not, I just looked.
But the main thing you're doing with this is pull ups, I'd just buy a door pull up bar for $20-$30.

I agree with @baz5, buying separate a pull-up bar & dipping station is cheaper.

Eh still in the market for it. Door Pullup bars have messed up my door frames and the dip station would be nice.

Anybody have experience with this model tho?

Do you not have a sofa or any chairs at home? You can easily do dips with those

I agree with you too.

Buying none would be cheaper also.

I got it.

It's bullet proof, and damn sturdy. It's a bit on the short side, meaning I have to tuck for pull-ups (I am 5"11') otherwise my feet will touch the ground well before I get to full extension. That said, the shorter height also allows it to work for indoors. It also offers varied pull up grips, arms are adjustable to get the height right for dips or to do a variety of other exercises including deficit push-ups, tricep dips, pike/handstand presses, among many others. The TRX-style nylon handles are wicked as well for introducing some additional control and the cradle for your arms facilitates core-focused movements.

The adjustable arms is way more sweet than I was expecting. You can just dial it in for your height (my GF shares, she can lower for herself and also get it set up to do negatives). It also allows you to do many other movements.

I've got a squat/bench rack with olympic plates and this is the only other piece of equipment I'd consider sacrificing space in my house for (I also have a gym membership). Good for leg raises and a few other workouts as well

I'm interested to see what the price on other product names for this would be since the post above mentioned another brand. These aren't always easy to find on Kijiji.. I've tried. Plus try dealing with random people on Kijiji. Most people waste your time or don't want to be reasonable on pricing for used stuff

I'm jealous. Squat rack and a bench is your bread and butter of strength movements - you've got a good set up. If I were you, I wouldn't get this unit but try rings, if you have a bar to hang them off the squat rack. Will save money, and most importantly , space. And damn, rings are versatile.

The other one in the OP is this guy. Don't know if I would recommend it over a few dollars savings, but it is an option.

when doing pull-up, do you need to bend you knees/legs? The height is 77"

Yup, I have to tuck in. I wouldn't recommend this if you're over 6'.

Thanks. Ordered 1. Some mixed reviews on this but I have other bowflex stuff and it's all been good quality so I figured it's worth a try.

I have this, it’s great. Very sturdy... I wanted it mostly for the pull ups but also use it for dips and other core exercises.

I find the door ones are clumsy and can leave marks. This with the dip bars is a good piece of equipment. There's a used one in my area on classifieds for $100.
