A great piece of equipment for anyone
Made by Gold's Gym, but not what you would find in an actual gym, this is still an excellent piece of equipment. I'm 6'2 219 lbs and it's perfect for me. I have to bend my knees doing pullups/chinups, but that is not a problem at all. Does not hamper anything. Other people have commented that this is wobbly, but I don't find that to be the case. The joints do flex somewhat, but that only makes since because this is not made of a solid single piece of metal tubing. It has joints/points of connection and those do give a little/really little. Doesn't really require two people to assemble. Assembled this by my lonesome in about 2 hours, a little slow just because I had a movie playing in the background and stopped to watch every now and then. Would recommend a socket wrench. You don't have to put this together on a hard surface, carpet is fine. I would've hated moving this into the spare room from my cement floored garage anyways. For the price, this really can't be beat.
Functional if a Little Squeaky
I got it assembled within an hour or two, very simple to put together. It sits slightly crooked, but I just put a small shim under the right end-point of the floor bar under the side with the pull-up bar and it's good to go. That could be me though, maybe I just need to adjust it and tighten it down. It squeaks a bit at the points of connection where the bolts are when I do dips on it, so I feel like maybe some thin rubber buffers could have been helpful here. Also, although it doesn't feel flimsy per se, it does wobble a bit when I do exercises like dips or pull-ups that involve hanging on a point that is far out from the unit's center-point; perhaps it could have benefited from a few more structural cross-support beams somewhere; honestly it's a minor quibble and not enough to worry about though. It looks good and does exactly what it's supposed to without any functionality issues. Glad I bought it overall! Great buy for the price, and I will use it for many years to come!
Used an Everlast power tower in the '90s and a Weider in the 2000s. Both served me well. Opted to give this a try despite previous bad experience with other Icon exercise equipment, and wish I hadn't. It's definitely lower quality than the Weider alternative that sells for around the same price. The dip bars are horrible, but luckily I had no intention of using them. The assembly process is poor compared to the aforementioned alternative, the unit does not come with tools like the aforementioned alternative did, and I found myself stripping a few bolts no matter how careful I was. The biggest PRO I found was the push-up grips, which give you more room than the alternative mentioned. I've already used these more than I ever used those of the Weider. Overall, if you just need a sturdy push-up bar, this will work... just be very careful with assembly. If you're going to use the other side of the tower, though, I would recommend looking for something else.
Great Product, Great Value
Similar item goes for over $300 on a very popular internet auction site. When I saw this for just $120, I had to try it, given the price and WalMart's great return policy. Set up was easy and didn't take too long. I've used all the functions and so far it's great. Surprisingly the footprint of this thing is smaller than I thought and takes up very little space in my garage. I'm about 185-190lbs and 5'11", and it does everything I need it to. I got this because on days I don't want to go all the way to the gym, I can knock out a quick workout in my garage in less than 10 minutes. Pullup bar holds my weight extremely well. Hanging knee raises are great. The only thing that doesn't feel as sturdy are the dips because it's just a few bolts that keep the arms in place, so when I do the dips, I do them more slowly than in the gym, which turns out to be a good thing because it makes my form better, and thus I get a better workout. I'd say at this price point and convenience, you can't beat this product.
