Best Body Solid Home Gym Reviews

In this post, we cover some of the best and most appropriate Body Solid gym setups for your home. This post does not necessarily cover every Body-Solid and Powerline home gym out there, since there are numerous models. But we have definitely found and included some of the most popular options for you to consider.

Keep in mind that we’ve also excluded all of Body-Solid’s commercial gyms from the following post with the exception of the EXM3000LPS, which is considered a light commercial gym that can be rather exceptional in the right home. Depending on your space and finances, here is an overview of the kind of Body-Solid equipment you can expect for an awesome Body-Solid home gym.

Body Solid Powerline Home Gym

Perhaps Body-Solids most popular home gym of all is with its most basic model, thanks to its simplicity and effectiveness. The high-quality Powerline home gym is already almost completely assembled when shipped, which is amazing and unusual. The Powerline is considered a gym that is very durable, strong, and well-build; a result of its gauge mainframe construction.

Other features include military-grade aircraft cables with 2,200-pound tension strength, allowing for smooth and fluid resistance. One of the best things about the Powerline gym has to be the fact it is space-saving. As one of Body-Solids smallest and lowest maintenance home gyms, it’s easy to see why many flock to this model.

Its use of a 160-pound weight stack is accompanied by a 48-inch lat bar, low row bar, and ab crunch strap. The Powerline gym further offers a number of ways to begin your workout – these include a high pulley station, mid pulley station, low pulley station, chest press, seated row, and leg station. With the Body-Solid Powerline gym, users will be able to perform up to 40 different exercises. You can also check out the Body-Solid Powerline Gym with Leg Press.

Body-Solid G1S Selectorized Home Gym

Another one of Body-Solid’s most popular, functional, and preferable home gyms is the G1S. The G1S is a great fit for any home thanks to its smaller than average footprint. The gym offers three main sections with over forty strength-training and toning exercises to work-out with. The three main workout sections include a high-pulley, mid-pulley, and low-pulley, all allowing you to perform a full-body workout with the finest quality pulleys and cables. Additional stations include a chess press, leg extension, curl station, and low row station.

The G1S further uses a single 160-pound alloy weight stack and comes with multiple accessories. They include a lat bar, straight bar, ankle strap, ab and triceps strap, along with your own Total Workout Body DVD. No additional weights can be added to the weight stack. It has a high max user weight capacity of 400-pounds, while the G1S gym itself comes with a full lifetime warranty. Overall we would say the G1S is an above-par, exceptional home gym that will allow you to really work out the lats, chest, shoulders, and triceps. The number of workouts that can be performed with the G1S is simply impressive.

You will also need to make sure you have the proper space in your home or garage to setup the gym properly. We’ve added the dimensions here. Lastly, the G1S is also an updated version of their best-selling EXM1500S, which is why we recommend going with the G1S first and foremost. Differences between the G1S and EXM1500S include its dark grey color and use of optional aluminum pulleys.
