Home Gym owners: What do you think of this? (Weider MAX Resistance System Gym)

Howdy

Do any of you happen to have this Home Gym?

I'm thinking about picking it up tomorrow and giving it a try. I can get it for a pretty good price...so I might just do it. But I would love to hear any feedback on this brand/model if I can first. I would love to go with a BowFlex brand - but I'm afraid of spending too much on something that I MIGHT NOT use much

Weider MAX Resistance System Gym



The Weider® MAX home gym provides the benefit of gym-quality workouts in the privacy of your home. The adjustable pulley gives you free range of motion for superior upper-body training and building. To help you achieve powerful, toned legs, the balanced leg developer targets quads and hamstrings while helping you maintain proper form. Get cardiovascular and strength-building benefits doing rowing and leg extensions on the low pulley.

imho you cant beat the gym. they have 1 machine made for 1 thing and only to work that primary area.

my vote is that these don't quite reap the benefits of the gym, but is better that nothing.

your best bet would be saving your money and paying for a gym membership. nothing really beats heavy freeweight lifting as far as strength and size building goes.
