If you are making the choice on what to place inside your home gym, you have to check out a fitness store that carries Life Fitness equipment and check out the Life Fitness G2 Home Gym. This costs generally around $1400 for the better models and this is worth your money. There are cheaper choices of course but they do not have the same quality that this brand does.
Details and Specifications
The Life Fitness G2 Home Gym measures 71 inches in length, 83 inches in height, and 48 inches in width. There is an optional leg press that you can add, in this case the width becomes 81 inches. But even if it does make the equipment bulkier, the leg press as well as the calf raise are really added benefits. Some home gyms have these as well but they are a lot bulkier compared to this model.
Some sets have lat bars which are not needed to be lifted in order to remove it from the bar. If you do choose to go for the Life Fitness G2, you need to make sure that you have extra ceiling room so that you can get the lat bar off of the holder.
The warranty on the Life Fitness G2 Home Gym frame and parts is for a lifetime. The pads and the cables have a three-year warranty which seems like a good deal.
Features of the G2
The Life Fitness G2 comes with a weight stack of around 160 pounds. You can place the pin on the weight level that you wish to lift.
The equipment comes with a low row bar, an ankle strap, a lat bar, some exercise cards, and two handles of different sizes. These are great features to have and they will cost more if you buy them separately. You also have the option of purchasing 50 additional pounds.
It can be safely said that the Life Fitness G2 Home Gym feels a lot more stable compared to other household gyms. It also has that commercial quality feel to it. You do not have to worry about wobbling and wiggling especially when you do the part of the leg extension. It also has a low cable which lets you do seated rows, shoulder work, leg work, and biceps work.
You can also switch to and from different exercises since the machine has a contoured back and a comfortable seat.
Probably the one disadvantage that the Life Fitness G2 Home Gym has is that its seat is not movable so you cannot do exercises like triceps extensions. But you can do a lot of other exercises.
