Let’s Get Started:
The Body-Solid Free-Weight Leverage Home Gym (SBL460P4) is built-to-last and designed to help achieve maximum gains in strength and size in a minimum amount of time and in the comfort of your home. The extra heavy-duty mainframe is built from 10 and 11 gauge high tensile strength steel with all four side welded construction. Durable, electrostatically applied powder coat finish resists scratches, scrapes and chips. There is no other all in one gym machine in its class that can compare to its strength and stability. Each leverage exercise station moves fluidly on pivot points utilizing commercial-grade pillow block bearings and oversized bronze bushings.
The Free-Weight Leverage Gym provides over 40 different exercises in three distinctly different workout stations. Load up the plates and go to work. You can perform incline, decline and flat bench presses, pec flys, lat pull downs, preacher curls, squats, calf raises and many, many more exercises. You can feel free to max out your workouts too with advanced safety features that allow you to exercise without a spotter.
This home gym is designed for a commercial atmosphere and it will take anything that you can dish out. So if you’re looking for a home gym that can provide a heavy workout this is the one. Body-Solid is so confident in this setup that they warranty every piece of this machine for a lifetime.

Shipping and Assembly:
Shipping costs will vary for the Body-Solid Free-Weight Leverage Gym depending on where you purchase from and what type of delivery you prefer. However, some retailers, such as Amazon.com, might provide free shipping.
Assembly of the Free-Weight Leverage Gym is straight forward but it’s going to take some time. There are a lot of bolts, washers and nuts so make sure you have a good wrench. Everything is packaged to coincide with the steps in the instructions. Some of the frame can get heavy, but assembly can be done with one person. If you have the patience and can follow instructions well, assembly should take around six hours to complete.
What We Love About the Body-Solid Free-Weight Leverage Gym (SBL460P4):
The Body-Solid Freeweight Leverage Gym is a well built machine. Its construction is second to none. It uses 10 and 11 high tensile strength gauge steel with all four sided welded construction. With this design, it is commercial rated and comes with a lifetime frame and weld construction. For home use, the entire machine has a lifetime warranty. The Freeweight Leverage Gym has a total weight capacity of 600 lbs so no matter what your fitness level is; this machine will work for you. And being that this is a free weight machine, you can be guaranteed that you will never lose resistance like you will with resistance bar and pulley-designed home gyms.
Full Body Workout
What we’ve noticed is that Body-Solid is really good at giving you the most for your money. The Free-Weight Leverage Gym provides tons of exercise options; everything you’ll need for a complete workout. You can truly perform exercises for the upper body and lower body. Some of the competitor gyms in this price range will only provide a couple leg exercises like a curl or extension, but this gym gives you a complete lower body workout with the squat/calf press station. You won’t need another piece of gym equipment with this machine.
We need to point out that with the Body-Solid Freeweight Leverage Home Gym is that you’re only buying the structure itself with your initial investment. After you buy the home gym you still need to buy weight plates for resistance. Depending on quality and quantity of plates you decide to buy the prices can vary. This isn’t unusual, but it would be nice to get a starter weight set included or maybe a discount price with the purchase of the Free-Weight Leverage Gym.
Final Word on the Body-Solid Free-Weight Leverage Home Gym:
The Body-Solid Free-Weight Leverage Gym is going to last a lifetime. It is durable, well-constructed, and comes with a lifetime warranty. The three distinctly different workout stations are awesome for targeting specific muscles. Now, you will need to purchase the weight plates separately, but along with the home gym, these will last forever. You won’t need to worry about losing resistance like you might with resistance bands or pulleys and cables. Highly recommended. Rating: 98/100
