Shape your body, get strong, lose weight, and even improve your golf swing with the BodyCraft XPress Pro strength training system. The XPress Pro lets you perform a wide range of exercises, with stations for chest presses, shoulder presses, lat pulls, leg lifts, and more. The XPress Pro starts with a row/press arm that supports safe, machine-style bench presses, incline presses, shoulder presses, and seated rows. The leg extension/leg curl station, meanwhile, offers a convenient self-aligning feature that accommodates virtually any user. Add in the functional training/cable arms–which support more than 100 exercises–and you have a terrific gym for functional core training, sports-specific workouts, and rehabilitation exercises.
XPress Pro Pulleys
Users will also appreciate the XPress Pro’s series of pulleys, which includes a mid pulley for ab crunches and tricep extensions, a high pulley for lat pulldowns and tricep pushdowns, and a low pulley with a foot plate for low rows, leg and hip exercises, arm curls, upright rows, and more. The XPress Pro uses these pulleys and cables to deliver unrestricted, completely natural, biomechanically correct movements. You define the path, providing for a greater, more natural range of motion that incorporates the use of stabilizer and core muscle groups, an advantage not found on typical home gyms. Finally, the XPress Pro includes a 200-pound weight stack that can be doubled to 400 pounds when combined with the leg press, which is cabled at a 1:2 ratio.
XPress Pro Features
Construction features include 12-gauge steel tubing; flexible, nylon-coated aircraft cable rated at more than 2,000-pounds tensile strength; 4.5-inch-diameter, fiberglass-impregnated nylon pulleys with sealed ball bearings; 2-inch-thick high-density foam covered with double-stitched vinyl; chrome-plated 1-inch tubular steel guide rods; noise-dampening, perforated steel weight stack guards; and a platinum gray, powder-coated finish.
The XPress Pro measures 56.5 by 83 by 82.9 inches (W x H x D) and comes with a lat pull bar, curl bar, ankle strap, and two single handles. It’s also backed by a lifetime warranty.
Reviews of BodyCraft Xpress Pro
Review 1: rock solid
It arrived as promised from Amazon and is everything I thought it would be.
Something to note: It was packed by the manufacturer extremely well and I’m glad it was for when it arrived (via Amazon’s shipper) the boxes were really beat up. I was afraid that there would be damage or parts missing for the boxes looked like they’d been through Hell. Fortunately, everything was fine. Again, thanks to BodyCraft. They make a great product and they take the care to pack it well enough to withstand a real beating in shipping. Nothing inside was missing or damaged.
Review 2: Logistical info
You can get the exact dimensions on BodyCraft’s web site. Box 1/3 75x22x8 133 lbs; Box 2/3 45x42x17 197lbs; Box 3/3 79x11x6 40lbs; Weight Plates 4 Boxes 5x10x5 ea. 190lbs total (3-50lbs, 1-40lbs). Greg at IncrediBody was kind enough to get this info for me prior to ordering from them. Once the boxes are opened; there is no single piece that is too heavy for an average guy. Before assembling; you may want to watch the DVD video in Box 3(see above). There are some exercises you perform from the side. I didn’t know this. Once it’s fully assembled; it would be a real pain to move it. As it turns out, I got lucky and have enough space on the sides.
This thing is completely in parts. It took half a day to assemble. I took plenty of breaks. But yes, the first workout you get will be moving the boxes and assembling the thing! The instructions aren’t the greatest and I believe there’s an error when you get to the cable assembly diagram. You’ll want to have a ratchet wrench or your build time will be significantly longer. One strange bolt is the allen bolt for the top of the weight stack – it’s a size 8 (I think). That’s very large for an allen wrench so you may not have one in the tool box.
Most of the vendors only include curbside delivery. Greg at IncrediBody upgraded me to “inside” delivery for free:) Unfortunately, the delivery company would only bring it into the garage. They aren’t insured to bring it in the house. I know you can tip the driver and they’ll bring packages to a specific room but I doubt one man can carry the largest box #2. This delivery company (Road Runner), does not operate on weekends and the delivery window they gave me was like 4 hours. I didn’t have anyone who could accept the package for me on a weekday so I asked the dispatcher if I could have 2 guys deliver it to my basement on a Saturday – and I’d be ok to pay them extra. Sure enough, it pays to ask. A day later, she found 2 guys who could do that for me. So I paid extra but it was well worth it.
The gym itself is very nice as other reviewers have already mentioned.
Review 3: … Gym now for over 6 weeks and I really love it. I am not an exercise fanatic
I have this Home Gym now for over 6 weeks and I really love it. I am not an exercise fanatic, just someone trying to get into shape. My son and I use this Gym and we are both very impressed with how easy it is to change the set up for different exercises. I would strongly recommend this gym to anyone. It is a very well designed and manufactured piece of equipment. All you need when exercising with this machine is imagination because the number of ways it can be used appear endless.
