    Ouch - 4:1, wow... what a reduction/compromise. Borderline criminal! Very fortunate in this case with the FTX!! (I believe the CXT-200 is similar, but it offers two ratios - 2:1 and now that I think...

    Thanks! The people here have been quite helpful!!

    Firstly, the Costco deal was insane. As I mentioned, FTX trainer, adjustable bench, 1 year Inspire app and delivered to my garage - $1700 CAD +...

    Indeed, this input is greatly appreciated - thank you for the detailed, considered information. I actually ended up purchasing the Inspire FTX - the deal at Costco (under $1900, delivered, including...

    Greatly appreciate the input, @Prozach2!
    True in that the Smith bar isn't a huge selling feature/perk, but much like yourself I'll probably make use of it semi-regularly. Happy to hear it's almost...

    Thanks, @ripper238!

    It's really, really weird - I was leaning hard towards the CXT-200 largely based on your endorsement & the layout of the machine itself; however for whatever odd reason (and...

    Some people are born with it, haha!! (jealous but happy for them!)

    That's a good point, @gym62richard - makes sense considering the pandemic-related run on gym supplies/equipment. Thanks! I couldn't even find a retailer in Canada that sold Cybex equipment; figured...

    @ripper238 - one quickie/final question, if you wouldn't mind: the FT2 has seen some revisions in the past 2 years or so (all-black + chrome frame now, some decals are actually now badges already...
  • Very much appreciated, @ripper238! I guess...

    Very much appreciated, @ripper238! I guess overkill is better than the alternate, haha!

    Curious if TuffStuff would ship direct to Canada - they've yet to respond to my email from over a week ago...

    @Asjogren - I mentioned the Canadian pricing earlier ($4300 + $200 delivery for the TuffStuff CXT, $4600 + $200 delivery for the FT2) from two separate retailers (neither carry both brands, sadly)......

    Standard CYA-clause - noted, haha! ;) Not surprised in the least, but it helps to hear that others aren't bolting to the floor.

    At this point I'm leaning towards the FT2, simply because they've...

    ^ That right there is tremendous help, to be completely honest - you read my mind. I had figured those would be the main 'pain points' regarding wear/replacement. It's awesome to know, should it be a...
  • @Asjogren - too funny! Same machines that I'm...

    @Asjogren - too funny! Same machines that I'm currently considering??! 5 years strong (pun intended), and no issues with the FT2? I appreciate the input very much. It looks like an absolute monster -...
  • @Duplicitous, I can't thank you enough for both...

    @Duplicitous, I can't thank you enough for both of your thoughtful responses. I've had no experience with FTs outside of the Cybex BRAVO back in 2012 or so; reading what you wrote certainly helps...
  • ripper238 - I need your input on two things,...

    ripper238 - I need your input on two things, please! Anchoring, and the warranty:

    1. How critical is anchoring/bolting the unit to the floor? The CXT-200 manual makes the following mention:

    I appreciate that! Inspire seems to be the "in"-brand currently...

    Sadly, Prime Fitness and Cybex aren't options in my area - interesting side note: it's Cybex's BRAVO Functional Trainer that...

    Can't overstate how much I appreciate the advice, especially since you yourself have installed the very machine I'm considering!!

    Thank you, @ripper238!

    I appreciate the experience - especially noting that TuffStuff parts should be available for some time to come. They've been around longer (70's, I believe?); however,...
  • Functional Trainers: INSPIRE FT2 versus TuffStuff CXT-200

    Hey all!

    This is only my 2nd post in many, MANY years (apologies if this thread exists elsewhere); hoping you can help out with a decision based on company history/product support:

    - Inspire's...
  • MUTANT Pro 100 series review - ALL 7 FLAVOURS!

    This is my first review, so please bear with me; I can be excessively wordy, but I'll strive for brevity here!

    I was very fortunate to obtain single-serving sample pouches of Mutant's PRO 100...
