What We Love About the Weider Home Gym:

Price

In this price range finding a good home gym design is tough. Most of your options are bodyweight benches with variable incline levels and resistance bands. Finding a weight stack home gym is nearly impossible, but the Weider Home Gym is one. The 80 lb weight stack provides up to 214 lbs of resistance with its cable-pulley system. This machine has high and low pulleys, a leg developer and a chest press/butterfly. With this design you are able to work ever major muscle group in the upper and lower body.

Other Considerations:

The Weider Home Gym has a 300 lb weight capacity but it is a very compact machine. There is a single square steel tube base with a small front support and a little larger back support. I guess it’s a good thing that the weight stack is only 80 lbs or this home gym might really get rocking while exercising. The Weider Home Gym itself weighs 196 lbs, so if you’re at the top of the weight capacity, you better have some good balance while performing the chest press and butterflies. Reports are that its small compact size also makes it difficult for larger or taller users to get full range of motion during exercises.

Final Word on the Weider Home Gym:

You can’t complain about the price of the Weider Home Gym. For a very low price, you are getting a complete body workout gym with a weight stack resistance system. That’s a far better resistance system than most home gyms in this price range. The one complaint that isn’t unusual in this price range is that due to its compact size, it may not fit larger individuals. Even so, it’s a great entry level home gym to get you on your way to a healthier lifestyle.
