Shipping and Assembly:

Shipping costs will vary for the BodyCraft Galena Pro Home Gym depending on where you purchase from and what type of delivery you prefer. However, some retailers, such as Amazon.com, may provide free shipping.

Surprisingly the BodyCraft Galena Pro Home Gym doesn’t take as much time as some of the other high end home gyms. The instructions are good and the equipment is packaged well. A single person should be able to complete assembly in less than four hours.

What We Love About the BodyCraft Galena Home Gym:

Multiple Stations

We really like the three distinctly different exercise stations on the BodyCraft Galena Pro Strength Training System. The three stations are allow you to perform seated flys, a low row or upright cable curl, and presses, pull-downs and leg extensions. You can perform all of these exercises on most home gyms.  But the individual stations are nice because they’re specifically designed for these exercises. That means you can do the exercise with minimal knowledge of specific technique.

Other Considerations:

Weight

A limit of the BodyCraft Galena Pro Home Gym is that it only has a 200 weight stack and there is no ability to add additional weight. If you add the optional leg press attachment the pulley and cable system will bump up the stack resistance to 300 lbs, but it’s only for the leg press. While 200 lbs is a good amount of weight for most exercises and most people, for more advanced user it may not be enough.

Lower Body Workouts

Like some other BodyCraft home gyms, another drawback of the Galena Pro Home Gym is that there aren’t a whole lot of lower body workout options. You can do some basic curls and extensions. But if you want to get more lower body workouts, you’ll need to spend another $400 for the leg press upgrade or look at other home gyms. One option that you might want to take a look at is the Body-Solid EXM3000LPS Double Stack Home Gym. Check out our review of this machine.

Final Word on the BodyCraft Galena Pro Home Gym:

BodyCraft home gyms are well built and designed well. The Galena Pro is a great example of this. The large steel tube gym is backed with a lifetime warranty. We love the design that provides three separate workout stations. We just wish there was the ability to add more weight to the 200 lb stack. If this is a concern of yours as well, you might want to check out our reviews of the BodyCraft XPress Pro our Body-Solid Freeweight Leverage Commercial home gyms.
