      1. This has a lot of functionality with all those exercises that can be done. It look small enough that it could easily fit in my garage and I can still get my car in there. But does it come pre-assembled?

        1. No there will be some assembly required. But an excellent question in which I’ll address in an edit to the post! Yes it doesn’t take up to much space at all and could work in many different rooms.

      2. This looks amazing, especially for someone interested in building and maintaining strength and muscle.
        Great product review.

      3. Great review. I am just checking the market about the home gym machine. I promised myself to do more weight training in the new year, but with two little kids, going to the gym is often a hard mission.

        Keep up with excellent work.


        1. Thank you, I hope you found the review helpful and informative. Of course I understand having two little ones will slow down the pace. Hopefully you can find some time to keep up the goals!
