I was in the market for a home gym and found this Bowflex. I bought this over a year ago and it has yet to mess up. The power rods are still holding strong and no issues with the actual machine at all. While it is big when you have it out and using it, you have the option to fold it up and free up half the space. I also love the fact that you can add an extra 100 lbs to this machine if and when you get too strong for the current weight it comes with.
