TechRod TR-2 gym cost-effective and efficient
Strengths: Wide range of exercises possible Fast workout--less wasted time Upgradeable to higher resistance if needed Reasonably durable
Weakness: Not as adjustable as BowFlex (of course, it's a fraction of cost, too!) Would like squat attachment
I purchased the TechRod TR-2 gym in the spring of 2006. At the time, it was on sale for about $160, which is a fraction of the cost of other rod-type gyms. In the case of TechRod, I'd say you get a little more than you pay for. It works very well for me in providing a fast, efficient workout in a small space. I did not like working out in my basement, and the TechRod gym lets me workout in a bedroom. I called the IMPEX customer support line (it was 800 999 8899 in March 2006) and bought an extra set of heavy (50 lb each) resistance rods to fit the open holes in the rod array. The gym comes with 200 lb. total resistance, the extra rods add another 100 lb. total. It's probably not really 300 lbs., but it's pretty tough nonetheless. The gym has a leg attachment that allows leg extensions and hamstring curls, but not squats. It is possible to do a front squat by removing the leg attachment (easy to do) and using the leg power take-off and some creativity--also an extra strap, and extra bar to grip in the front squat position.
I'm rambling here...it's a good gym for the money. You won't be sorry.
