    Those are the basics. I don't know the quality of the components, so I don't know if it's a good deal, but those are the basics for a home gym. Well, the high/low pulley system is an extra, but it's an extra I personally like.

    Basics as in equipment wise (if so what else would you need in a home gym?) or quality wise? I just wanna know if someone has this brand / will it fall down after 6 months

    Better off signing up to a gym, you'll get better results cause you're body is going to get used to doing the same exercises all the time and it'll also give you more motivation.

    Basics equipment-wise. You don't really NEED anything else in a home gym, but some dumbbells would be nice. I don't know anything about the brand, so I'm no help there.

    OP, read the stickies, and then check out ebay. You could do worse then this set, but you can also do a lot better.

    The package will get you started, I'm not sure that I'm a fan of the bench though.

    Also have a look at this... http://www.fitness-superstore.co.uk/..._/13503_p.html It's a Powertec rack on its own.

    And the lat attachent http://www.fitness-superstore.co.uk/...1/13505_p.html

    The Body Solid rack is also reported to be very good.

    You can get a weight set here... http://www.fitness-superstore.co.uk/..._/11784_p.html

    Here's a good starter bench ... http://www.fitness-superstore.co.uk/...ey/7087_p.html

    Thanks for the input man. Your set up comes to around 1200 pounds though so it's like 1450 euro with shipping

    I have read that people like the Bodymax CF475 so I think it will be okay for me. The olympic bar and weights will do me for a long time.. so the bench would probably be okay. I can get more plates as I progress. I might ask them if I can get it without the pully so it will be even cheaper.

    Squats, press, bench, deadlifts, rows, shrugs, curls, pullups/chinups and I have a bike, jump rope and kettlebell so I should be alright?
    Admit it, I have jimmied your rustles, haven't I?

    There will be nothing wrong with the CF475 package, you can just get a good amount better for a little more.

    Why not leave the cable attachment for the minute and look at getting a better rack and weight set?

    You can get the cable attachment when you have the extra cash...
