  • Well worth the price!

    Feb 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, easy assembly, best out there for the buck!
    Cons: Had to wait over a month to arrive, minor fit and finish

    Summary: I have been a Stay-at-Home-Dad now for three years and have put on 42 lbs. This is the year I have dedicated to getting back in shape. I considered everything from Bowflex to Crossbow, to Universal, to Body Solid. I only wanted to spend about $1000. ... read more

    Pros: decent weight,good build,smooth lifts,you can wear whatever in your house without anyone laughing
    Cons: need extra handles,

    Summary: I'll try to cover every question. I found the powertec WB-LS at Dicks Sporting Goods for $699. After 4 mths of searching that was the cheapest. You can even try it out. They had two models on display. You cannot pick it up in a car unless you take ... read more

    Pros: Price, exercise quality and quantity, fairly compact, resistance better than rubber-band or bending-rods.
    Cons: Nothing that would cause buyer's remorse. Read above review.

    Summary: I have only been using the Powertec gym for a couple of months, but I have seen dramatic gains. I have done free-weights off and on for over 20 years, and I have also tried every machine I could get my hands on. I was looking for a new home gym that ... read more

  • Finally, a safe and effective workout

    Sep 21, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very versatile. High quality construction. Small foot print. Good price.
    Cons: The feel of the rear leverage arm takes getting used to.

    Summary: I bought the Powertec Leverage gym after using a standard weight bench and weight rack for the past few years. Since I work 12 hours shifts at a power plant and I have no time to go to the gym I have to do my workouts at home. And I have recently started ... read more

  • Solid System

    Sep 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: High quality, easy to use, well designed.
    Cons: Not quite so good assembly instructions, one cheesy part.

    Summary: I am 67, overweight (225), big belly, no muscle tone and not in any kind of condition. I ordered my Powertec Leverage System from Fitness Factory Outlet and received it on August 26, 2005. My wife and I assembled the unit that evening and ran into some ... read more

  • Wow, glad I purchased this system

    May 30, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Gives the feel of free weights with cable use to complete a workout.
    Cons: Slow delivery,you have to put it together. You will need some accesories later.

    Summary: I did some online homework as well as checking out some local sport and gym stores. As I looked around I found that most home gyms are upright machines and use mostly cables 90% of the time. Well as you know from going to the gym, cables seem to break ... read more

  • One of the few serious home options re: function & value

    May 15, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Value for the money, durable, excellent gym-quality feel, no spotter required.
    Cons: Not easily moved (no wheels). Replacement cables not easily obtained-stock up with extras. Machining: so-so.

    Summary: I've worked out for more years than i want to admit. Always wanted to be able to work out at home, which wasn't easily possible until relatively recently. Remember the Soloflex? Perhaps the precursor to most of the equipment we can now choose from, but ... read more

    Pros: Good directions and a poster to help guide the assembly

    Summary: Powertec Leverage System Home Gym(Assembling) by webconspiracy | Mar 26 '05 ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------------------- Recommended: Very good machine. A few things to ponder though when assembling it. The ... read more

  • As good as it gets for a single machine

    Jan 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It offers all the exercises I could want and many more.
    Cons: It can take a little time to switch from one set up to another.

    Summary: I have used the Powertec WB-LS for about 18 months. I am 58 years old and use it 3 days a week. It is a fantastic exercise machine. I prefer a machine that allows me to add free weights, at the increments of importance to me. Not plates. I can make ... read more

    Sep 17, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality construction. "Gym" feel of exercises. Other than dumbells, only piece of equipment I need.
    Cons: Bench feels too tall for someone my size (5'8")

    Summary: The last few months have been hard for me to get to the gym so I've started searching for home equipment as an alternative. The Bowflex interested me because of the advertised versatility and limited space requirements. After trying it for myself I ... read more

    Pros: smooth and quiet, built to last, great range of motion
    Cons: assembly, a tad bulky

    Summary: After reading up for months on home gyms, I decided to get the Leverage System by Powertec. Words can't describe how happy I am with the decision I made. At first I was contemplating the weider Crossbow Platinum. It looked like it would give you a ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality Construction, flexible features, price
    Cons: bulky, not completely flexible.

    Summary: I've worked out at my gym for 4 years consistently. The cost of membership, and limited hours thought was forcing me to consider a home gym long term. Sometimes, I don't get home 'til 11:00pm, and my gym is closed then. I've looked at the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid construction, very versatile, works as advertised.
    Cons: Price tag.

    Summary: After much comparison-shopping, I finally bought the Powertec Workbench Leverage home gym. It deserves every bit of its 5 star rating and then some. The other reviews have really done a good job pointing out features so I won’t duplicate their efforts. ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Commercial quality home unit for a very reasonable price
    Cons: Needs 2 people or about 3+ hrs (alone) to assemble. But worth the time!

    Summary: I grew up lifting free weights at the local YMCA and enjoyed the motivation and "spotting" assistance of the other guys in the gym. As, I grew older though, I had less time to spend working out and decided to equip my home with workout equipment so that ... read more

    Pros: Solid construction, plate loaded
    Cons: low pulley connection and range of motion

    Summary: I have had my eye on this piece of equipment for close to 3 months now. I finally talked my wife into letting me purchase one and I had it delivered the following day. I have had a gym membership at various gyms since my high school days (16+ years), so ... read more

  • bye bye gym membership

    Sep 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review

    Summary: This machine is simply AWESOME. Why someone would pay $2,000 for some flexible rods is beyond me. This thing uses real iron weights. The nice thing is that you don't need a spotter for any of the exercises. The pulley system for the lat-pulls and the ... read more
