Body Solid EXM 1500S Review
What You Should Know
Body Solid EXM 1500S is a home gym that is sold by Body Solid. Body Solid is a company that manufactures and distributes fitness equipment to both private end use and commercial use as well. Body Solid was founded in 1989 and has its home base just outside of Chicago, Illinois. Body Solid sells both nationally and internationally to over 100 countries in the world.
The Body Solid EXM 1500S is, as stated above, a home gym. With a 160 lb. weight stack centered in the gym, you simply change out the pin for how much weight you wish to lift on each separate exercise. The EXM 1500S has the following available exercises on the equipment itself:
A lat pull down bar/High Pulley Station, Ab Crunch/Mid Pulley Station, Leg Curl Station/ Leg Extension, Chest Press Station, and a Seated Row/Low Pulley Station. Each station works a different section of the body.
There are some advantages to working out at home. You get the privacy you crave, no monthly membership fees, and no having to get ready to work out. Of course, the price can be a quick turn off unless you have about $2000 sitting around waiting to be put to good use on gym equipment. This is a heavy investment for the novice or irregular gym go-er and should be carefully considered before purchasing. The website does offer a lifetime guarantee on all its products and pieces so it seems that while you’ve broke the bank once, at least you won’t be doing it again and again to fix anything. The bottom line is there aren’t any short cuts to using a home gym. In order to get results, you’ve got to pump some iron. Getting fancy gym equipment might be a great motivator, but make sure it doesn’t end up becoming an expensive laundry rack for clothes you don’t end up putting away.
