Consumer's Guide Best Buy!
Body-Solid has built the tank of free weight home gyms with the Body-Solid Leverage Gym. The three-station frame is a solid 10 and 11-gauge high tensile steel strength with all-four-side welded construction. Itís a unit unsurpassed in strength and stability. Commercial grade pillow block and sealed ball bearings make for friction-free precision movement. The Body-Solid Leverage Gym also offers a unique spotting feature, providing safeguards at every station to prevent pinning under heavy weights. With the three stations, there are up to 40 exercises that can be done on this machine, and each station is adjustable to fit your size with the best possible positioning. Itís a free-weight gym thatís meant to be seen. The detail given to the stitching of the thick 3-inch DiraFirm padding that contrast so strongly to the rugged, raw strength of the construction kind of make the Body-Solid Leverage Gym a Best Buy at first sight.
"My foolish Bowflex Ultimate is wilting in shame next to that big SBL460! I bought it for my husband for his birthday and I am so impressed with Body-Solid that I would like to purchase another gym for myself. Another reason I am sticking with Body-Solid , I've never seen such good customer service coupled with this high quality in equipment."

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
Pros: This is the best Leverage Gym available. Can do more exercises than the Powertec units, and can withstand more weight on the Lever arm. The Lever arm also has handles that pivot and can make most exercises feel like free weights. Includes some attachments that are not shown in the picture, and can use any bench with it. Nuts and bolts are extremely well packaged and labeled.
Cons: The instructions do not say anything about lubricating the pillow bearings, even though all the bearings include nozzles for some type of grease gun. Some of the parts had scratches and scuff marks on them, however they do include touch up paint for that.
