Best home gym
The Body-Solid EXM1500S is relatively affordable for a home gym, but reviewers say this value-priced machine provides an excellent workout. It has a single weight stack totaling 160 pounds, and the sturdy frame can accommodate numerous exercises from chest presses and leg curls to seated rows and biceps curls. Reviewers are impressed with the gym's smooth operation, and the relatively small footprint makes it a good choice for those with limited space, owners say. A lifetime warranty is another plus. The EXM1500S home gym is solid and durable, and Body-Solid receives a number of compliments for its responsive customer service. On a negative note, the assembly process can be frustrating; several users say the gym takes between four and six hours to put together because the instructions aren't always clear. Most reviewers are happy with the 160-pound weight stack, but advanced lifters say they need more weight.
