Thanks in advance.

Plus it's far cheaper.

Hi

It is my opinion that most of these machines do not correctly fit many
people, consequently they cause injuries and are not used for very
long after a purchase. Whereas a properly comprised free weight set up
will last many years, IF a proper schedule is designed and followed.
Free weights allow the synergist muscles to work and a machine
normally does not allow this to happen. You work your body in a more
natural fashion by using free weights in a multiplanar manner.
Machines will not allow combination planar training.

better, reply here, and I'll get back to you.

Seriously, you're making a bad decision if you go with these gyms.
Cables and angles are all wrong. Body Solid is bad.

Go with a simple bench and dumbbells.

So you wouldn't buy a power rack and bench by Body Solid then?

It doesn't look as if "joging" helps your spelling much.

Never worry about anything that you see on the news.
To get on the news it must be sufficiently rare
that your chances of being involved are negligible!

Hi!

I started this with the question!

Thanks for all answers. Just to put things in their context.

I do run, 2-4 times a week.

I do an easier work-out program every day. Military style abs, back, chest
(push-ups) etc (no equipment than your weigh).

However, I would like to step it up some levels as well as letting my
teenage kids have the possibility to train at home. I do not feel that
dumb-bells or dumb-bars is the right way for them. So, I thought that a gym
with a weight stack and large variety of possible exercises would do it. My
eyes then fell at BodySolid 2750.

I will go to the shop once more and check it according to your comments.

Check out www.genofit.com
Call them and ask for their recommendations. I wound up with two very good
choices for euipment, and the one I chose was well-suited to what I was
looking for in a home gym. There's a guy there named John -Daniels- I
thnk... Anyway, he was probably the most knowledgable, helpful person you
could ask these questions of. I would recommend it again to anyone!
