If you are serious about training at home ( I am going to guess you fall into the bodybuilding crowd), I would not advise the above unit. It is limited and you will outgrow it very quickly. (unless this is an addition to your home gym already but I can't see why you would want such a unit regardless.)

Have you considered a used Power rack and some weights instead? Never buy fitness gear new..

And splurge a little on a decent barbell.

BUT if you must buy a "machine", consider the bowflew

some of the equipment mentioned above won't fit in the room i have, i used to have a bench press but i sold it to get something more small that doesn't occupy a lot of room. that's why i was thinking about getting something like the picture above

Weider has a good gym... Costco was selling an awesome gym a while back.

If your gonna get a bowflex do NOT get the power rod version but the version with the plates instead.

Berz out.
