They have a heavy-duty premium steel construction with sturdy steel tubing with guard rods that help keep weight in place during your training sessions. There is a decent selectorized weight stack of 150 pounds that you can adjust according to what you can handle- how much you can lift. You don’t need to worry about or feel the burden of loading or unloading any weight plates.
With the security lock the gym station will not be used by anyone without your permission. This is quite a versatile station that covers different major and minor muscles of your body. The dual action press arms let you do your vertical butterflies and chest press to tone and strengthen your chest- pecs and arms- triceps and biceps by just inserting or detaching a pin. The comfortable seat with a large backrest has an ergonomic design and very dense boxed upholstery for much less impact and tension.
You’ll be able to work on all your body on this great fitness equipment with more than thirty different exercises on its leg and arm stations conveniently in the comfort of your home. You can do your leg curls and leg extensions on its double function leg developer, and pec flies and chest presses on the double function press arms. The low and high pulleys and cables are linked to the 150-pound selectorized weight stack. You’ll be able to perform all your exercises in a smooth and controlled manner.
You can do isolated biceps on the detachable preacher curl bicep pad. The adjustable preacher curl pad lets you work on triceps and abdominals. You can do ab crunches to target your core section with the upper pulley and adjust the weight stack to control the resistance. The padded press arms have the large foam roller pads for more comfort. The weight stack lock will ensure you do work out safely and the security lock will help prevent any unauthorized use. You can do your isolated bicep exercises with the detachable preacher curl bicep pad.
Marcy MWM-990 weighs 125 pounds and measures 68 x 36 x 79 inches as assembled. As this is such a large and somewhat complicated fitness equipment, the assembly may take a while. And it will be quicker if you have a second person helping you and you follow the instructions very carefully. It will fit in even a small room easily as long as you have enough leg space at the front. Please note that you can not add additional weight on the stack. With the multiple grips- upper, lower and inner you can target your upper chest and shoulders, lower chest and middle chest. The weights on the stack are made of rubber with composite metal coating.
You get all of what you see in the photos, including a lat bar and an ankle strap. The build quality is pretty good and would be more suitable for beginner and intermediate level trainers, rather than advanced body builders. The complaints and negative reviews are mostly because of the poor packaging and the lack of instructions, rather than the product itself. Otherwise it offers very good value for the dollar: Functionality, durability, ergonomic and modern design, and fair price. *Marcy Gym Equipment Company has roughly six decades of history of designing and producing professional grade home gym equipment with an innovative design.
