After having this gym for a few weeks I have finally got round to assembling it. The instruction manual unfortunately is not that great, the step by step is more of an exploded view, so it can be confusing as to what to piece together first. The other thing that was a bit of an issue was the list of parts and their quantities, this did not always match up, however I did have a few spares once I finished. One tip is not to tighten everything up until you've finished, this way if you have put a longer bolt somewhere where you shouldn't have then it's easy and quick to change it. The plus point is that nearly all of the bolts are the same size just different lengths.

The build quality was very good and much better than I thought it would be, it is very solid and there are a few nice accessories, such as different hand/leg attachments for the cable clips (not sure of the appropriate names).

The movement of the main press is nice and smoothe and doesn't make any 'clonking sounds', both of the seats are nice and comfy and fully adjustable. The range of exercises is really good and there is even a nice plaque that can be attached to the side with some examples on it. I noticed someone asking whether the butterflies are any good, well yes it is. What the picture doesn't show very well is that there are another set of arms on hinges which clip onto the main brace. So when they are unclipped the motion has a very wide angle, hope that makes sense!

The last thing worth mentioning and probably one of the most important is the weight stack. There are alot of blocks but the great thing is that the total weight is 200lbs, or 90kg. This I believe will give the system a bit of a longer life, obviously depending on how strong you are!
