It is definitely expensive compared to other great machines that help others loser weight and get fit. While the equipment is top notch, it may not be that affordable for most people. It is, however, worth the money when buying this because of how it works and its simplicity when setting up for each workout or exercise.
- No weights
There is zero weights to worry about, but for some, this is a downside. Some guys really want to lift the way other bodybuilders do in the gym. This machine is focused primarily for home use and for those who want to stick to their own bodyweight for as long as possible. If you are still on the rise to gaining muscle, start off with this machine and move your way to the gym later down the road. However, you can still do a bunch of weight gaining exercises on it.
