Loaded with features, the Body Solid home gyms have been consistently ranked among the top-of-the-line in strength training equipment for 20 years. Along with a sibling company, Powerline home gyms, the BodySolid brand name has stood apart from the pack thanks to their distinctive state-of-the art design, smooth operation, and consistent performance.
It’s no wonder that Body Solid is the largest supplier of light commercial home gyms and strength training equipment in the USA.
Body Solid home gyms are traditional models with fixed-stack plate and pin adjustment systems. They offer smooth operation and come bundled with a variety of exercises for a full body workout. The multi-exercise stations on Body Solid home gyms include workouts for chest press, triceps press, shoulder press, high and low pulley stations, a chest row and pec deck, and more.
Powerline gyms by Body Solid have similar features and are also know for offering great value in their unique designs. The systems are also ergonomically correct and offer a multi-grip press arm system for the best results when working the chest and shoulders during incline and press movements.
The Body Solid Powerline P1 Home Gym is designed to be versatile, durable, dependable and affordable. Even more, with its graceful arcs and design-forward aesthetic, this cost-conscious gym merges form and function to complement modern home decor.
The compact, feature-packed design of the Powerline P1 offers proven motion and pivot points for a fluid routine. To increase comfort and functionality, ergonomically correct press arms allow for natural arm movement as you cruise through your favorite workouts. This machine also offers the added benefit of an optional leg press station that can be mounted on either side of the gym.
The top features are the:
Chest, Incline & Shoulder Press
Chest Supported Mid Row
Adjusted Back & Seat Pad
At one time the materials from the manufacture had a number of features lacking in the instruction department, but this was been fixed as of early 2010. This is truly a great entry-level machine if you are just building up your home gym.
The Powerline BSG10X is an excellent home gym for the workout novice. With a terrific number of exercises available (over 40) for the price, and individual components that provide enough customization to fit almost any preference, the BSG10X is a great starting point for anyone interested in owning a home gym.
The Powerline BSG10X takes up a relatively small amount of space when compared to similar home gyms with the same functionality. The footprint requires a long space rather than a long and wide space, which is perfect if you have a limited amount of room in your abode.
The design is also highly convenient, with no need to constantly change the cables with each exercise. Speaking of the cabling design, the manufacturers have utilized a pulley system which can withstand 2200lbs of tension – well above the machines lifting capacity.
I was very impressed by the ease at which the Powerline BSG10X could be set up. Within just 30 to 40 minutes, the machine was fully functional. This can be attributed design of the product, with just 9 bolts required to secure all the pieces together.
The weight stack is adjustable numerous times throughout its applicable range, and almost every piece of the Powerline BSG10X can be altered to suit an individual’s preferences.
For example, the arm / leg press component can be altered to suit 8 different positions, while the pulleys can be put in high, medium, or low functions.
Set up was particularly easy, and the design is extremely sturdy and durable. I should also mention that 10 year guarantee on the frame which comes as standard.
The Powerline Vertical Leg Press provides an impressive platform for obtaining huge muscle gains through isolated lower body workouts. The unique vertical design not only reinforces support for your back and hips, but also minimizes space used to perform the exercises.
