Multi Station Gyms Allow Full-body Workouts Safely In Little Space For Low Cost

By: Mark Green


Lots of options for workout on a variety of levels are offered by multi station gyms. You can find the commercial ones installed in member-based health clubs or decide to purchase one of the multi station gym for the home. These usually display quite many similarities to their commercial variety.
Multi station gyms consist of a four-sided "jungle gym" frame with a station on each side, 3-4 weight stacks in its center, and a system of pulleys and cables overhead. Two or more of these frames set several feet apart, form larger multi station gyms. One or more horizontal cross over bars connects these and can be used for pull-ups.
The advantages of multi station home gyms are that they are likely to be compact, assembling them is not complicated and they are not expensive. Their prices range from several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the brand, functionality and additional features. Additional cost of maintaining it over the years should also be considered. Though assembling the gym will normally require only a set of wrenches and ratchets, it is advisable to check with the sales representative whether any special assembly or pre-assembly is required.
While these systems tend to be more complex than their larger cousins, the overall savings in space, especially in a small home or garage environment, can more than make up for the difference. To save space without eliminating features and capabilities, the number of weight stacks in a typical home unit may be reduced to one or two and complemented by a larger network of cables, pulleys and elastic bands.
The most basic gym will offer garden variety stations like a lateral pull-down bar, chest press, leg press and, of course, the bench press. Accessories like ropes and individual attachments can increase the types of activities one can add to the routine in order to have a full body workout experience.
When compared to the space requirements of free weight stacks arranged in a similar format, these compact gyms are a more efficient way to economize space. On top of that they're safe for all ages and easy to maintain. Like most conventional weight stacks, no power is needed.
