    Smile Best Smith Machine to Buy

    Hi There, there's a lot of motivation going to a commercial gym, however as a mom, which time is really so impt., I was thinking of setting up a home gym. I do not have the budget to purchase expensive ones, my basement is huge so space is not an issue. I saw this Body Solid 7 Series, I found on the thewiredshopper review.

    It's an investment but I'm thinking if it saves me time going to the gym and if my husband and kids can use this and since it'll be mine forever, I guess it's ok.

    I'm thinking of purchasing something like this next month, if you have any suggestions, your advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    Is it this, and is the $4235 price tag correct? https://www.bodysolid.com/home/gs348...h_gym/features

    If so, you can probably get what you need considerably more cheaply. Are you opposed to free weights?

    Get yourself a regular power rack. Far more flexible than a smith machine, wont mess up your shoulders and joints like one either.

    While a smith machine offers some advantages over free weight,free weights are still more versatile and better in the long run.
    With a smith machine you take out the balance factor of stability muscles helping during a lift.
    You probably could get all you need for half the price of what your looking at.
    I myself have a smith machine but it's not my primary tool in my gym.
    Body solid is a chinese made product.
    I have not had good luck with product from china and would consider something made in the USA .
    I have a brand called Tuff Stuff made in the USA that is perfect for home use.
    Good luck with ever you choose to do.

    A Smith is a great tool to add to your equipment provided you don’t solely rely on it for the majority of your training
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough
