    I'll be completely honest with you. Most if not all consumer level multi station home gyms are crap. If you look at your local Craigslist it is probably full of them.

    My advice is to read the stickies at the top of the page and do some research. I would look into a pair of adjustable dumbbells and a decent bench. If you or your wife can stick to a program with these items then move up to a rack, Olympic barbell, and weight set.

    What are your wife's goals? Weight loss and "toning" up can be done with diet manipulation (actually eating decent food and knowing what your putting in your body) and body weight exercises.

    You might want to look into p90x and other video routines that you can follow along with if your new to exercising. I started with this. It helped me lose weight and educate myself about food.

    Good luck this forum is full of knowledgeable people that are willing to help of you do some research.

    This is what my ex wanted me to build her as a home gym (after we seperated and my gym moved out). I suggest something along the same lines.

    Photo in progress. Should really get a completed one.

    We have the Powerblocks, Treadmill, etc... I should have been more precise. Was looking at more of a top of the line Multi. If that actually exists. She is not looking to join the fitness circuit, just look like that again... Thanks for your reply..

    She is cutting right now.. Diet, cardio, weight training... Just looking for something for the home..

    If you want an "all in one everything included minus weights" type of gym and don't mind spending the money on it, it might be worth your time to check out the Titan X series over at Impulse Fitness. Read some reviews talking about how it's quite complicated and takes time to configure it when swapping from one exercise to the next, but otherwise people seem to like it and it quite literally does everything.
