The Solid Vision of Body Solid Home Gyms

Body Solid Exm1500s gym

Since its founding in 1989, Body-Solid has seen a remarkable growth. Its original 10,000 square foot warehouse has become a 200,000 square foot distribution facility and worldwide headquarters located just outside Chicago in Forest Park, Illinois. It doesn’t just sell its equipment in the US and Canada, but in more than a hundred countries all over the world.
Body-Solid has acquired an enviable reputation for the quality of its equipment, as all Body Solid Home Gyms are made according the guiding principles of the company:

• Safety. The engineering begins with making a body structure that’s both unyielding and stable. The stability comes from the preference for low profile designs, while the rigidity is provided by exceptionally strong mainframes. The frame and cross members, along with the adjustment parts, connection points, and braces, are made mostly from heavy-duty carbon steel.

• Tough. There’s no reason to worry about the equipment’s toughness, because the steel alloy used in every home gym has a very impressive strength-to-weight ratio and superb impact-absorbing properties. “Tough” is the only word to use for its oversized pivot point bushings, reinforced arms, and shock-resistant weight stacks.

• Comfy. You’re not supposed to contort your body to fit a home gym. Instead, the home gym must be designed to fit the human body, and that’s what Body-Solid did. Throughout the design stages of each home gym model, ergonomic studies were firmly applied. This results in machines that are extremely user-friendly. The placement and shape of each component feels just right for you. The weight stacks are within easy, and adjustments can be made quickly and safely. Even the grips and the bars are designed to conform to the shape of your hands.

• Hi-Tech. The home gyms are designed with the most advanced CAD technology and other hi-tech tools. This allows the designers to place each component in its optimum location.

• Affordability. What’s the point of creating home gyms that everyone can use if very few people can actually afford it? Body-Solid has come up with the right formula that allows them to create high quality products at low prices.

The Body Solid Components

Each Body-Solid home gym comes with absolutely solid components. This isn’t an exaggeration, because Body-Solid offers a warranty that’s unmatched in the industry. The in-home warranty is for a lifetime of use, and it covers every piece and component. There are no exceptions to this.

So take a look at just how excellent these components are:

• Frames. The standard in the industry today seems to feature typical 2-side stitch welds. But Body-Solid machine frames feature welded construction on all four sides. Heavy-duty 2″ x 2″, 2″ x 3″ and 2″ x 4″ high tensile strength steel are used for the mainframes. The gyms also feature heavy, hardened gauge bolts and reinforcement plates for even greater stability.

• Pivot Points. Body-Solid used advanced pillow block and sealed ball bearings along with oversized, self-lubricating oil-lite bronze bushings for all pivot points. This allows for smooth, precise, and friction-free movement.

• Finish. Every Body-Solid home gym is protected by a powder-coat finish. This has been electrostatically applied, a process that’s also used on industrial machinery because it is very durable. The finish resists scratches, chipping, and corrosion, and cleaning the home gym becomes quite easy.

• DuraFirm Pads. These pads are resistant to tearing, super-thick, and extremely comfortable. The highest density foam in the industry has been used for them, and they come with an impressive 8 pound rebond rating to maximize the support provided.

• Cables. The cables are made from galvanized steel rated at 2200 pounds. They’re made in a 7 x 19 cable pattern and covered with nylon. They’ve been design to meet military specs, and they come with a 4:1 safety factor against stretching and breakage.

• Pulleys. The pulleys here are all resistant to impact. They are precisely matched to the diameter of the cables and designed for exact cable tracking. The nylon pulleys are reinforced with fiberglass, and they go around on sealed ball bearings that will never need maintenance. This ensures a lifetime of friction-free performance.
This is the Body-Solid hallmarks of superior features, impeccable design, and unassailable durability. Add the low price and the unmatched warranty, and they are truly a very solid choice for any fitness buff.
