Weider 200 Power Tower
In Depth Review
The Weider 200 is a beast of a power tower, and it is a must-have if you are thinking of setting up a home gym area. It comes with many awesome features and looks amazing to boot. The standard pull up bar on it allows you to do narrow, regular, and wide grip pull-ups with ease but that’s not all! You are also able to push-ups with the built-in push up bars, ab raises, and tricep dips as well. This lets you get a great full body workout without having to leave the comfort of your home. It is also relatively easy to move around if on a carpet, however, it may be tough to move around without scratching the floor otherwise since it weighs in at just around 100 pounds unassembled. Once the assembly process is done the tower looks amazing, the red on black design is great!Another bonus is that the instructions are well clear and well written. The foam padding on the arm and backrests is also of high quality, and even with moderate use, it has not begun to show its age.
The only real downside to this product is that you must have a dedicated space for it, and you have to make sure before buying that space is high enough. The full power tower stands right around 7 feet tall so you must have at the bare minimum an 8′ ceiling to make it work properly. If this is not the case it may be easier to use either a wall mounted bar or a door mounted pull up bar.There is a small amount of shaking when doing dips (I weigh in at 185 pounds) and other reviewers have noted that there is some minor instability at higher weights. Assembly also may take a fair amount of time (45 min+) however it is well worth it, I felt like a kid on Christmas building this thing. Also be sure to only tighten the bolts at the end of the process as specified!
If you are looking for a stable piece of workout equipment for at home, that also looks great then this is your best bet. This tower provides you with the ability to do anything from pull ups, and chin ups to dips and abs. This power tower allows you to get that full body weight workout without a problem. As long as you take to do a proper assembly and tighten the bolts then you will be more than satisfied with a stable power tower sitting in your house. Since it is a larger tower make sure you have a designated spot for the Weider 200!
