A barbell is the interface to the weight and although they may all look similar to an untrained eye, there are actually a...

Another functional trainer thread - Inspire, Rep, or Bodycraft?

I seriously doubt anyone has used all three of these functional trainers, but thoughts based on specs? I'm seriously considering going with the Rep FT-5000.
