Multi gym

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I’m after some advice on a multi gym. Specifically the one linked below. 

https://www.fitness-superstore.co.uk/body-power-pro-home-gym.html
 

Originally I was thinking of a power rack, 100kg Olympic weight set, bench and dumbbell set, but places are all sold out. I’ve come across the above and was considering getting this instead.

My main goal is to lose weight and build some muscle. I’m a right fat slob at the moment, just under 17 stone. Is this gym sufficient to build muscle as a long term investment, or am I better off being patient and waiting for the companies to stock up on supplies?

cheers

Haha, will do. Cheers for replying. 
 

I’ve got my eye on the following package and dumbbell set from mirafit.

Could be in for a long wait. 

The dumbbells don't look that great of a deal;

You'll likely not need the 3kgs or the 5kg so that's 4 of them your buying for nothing.

Great, thanks for pointing that out to me. Anything you can recommend?

Cheers all for your input. 
 

I’ve punted for the Marcy Pro PM4400 leverage multi gym. It’s not the same standard as the other you linked but it’ll hopefully be ok for what I need. It’s in stock and from what I gathered, the price doesn’t appear to be inflated. Plus I had an extra 5% off so it cost £569.

Just need to keep an eye out for weight plates now.

Looks like you’ll have some fun with that! Get some bands ordered too... it’ll add another dimension to your liftin’

Like my protec (I once had) you could probably rig a low pulley for seated rows!;)

Homemade foot plates for leg presses -https://homemadegymstuff.blogspot.com/2011/08/wbls10-leg-press-footplates-for-reduced.html?m=1

Use a hand towel(s) for pulldowns/triceps and your grip/forearms will get extra work, too. (Wrapped over the squat bar)

Enjoy!
