BodyCraft X2 Family Xpress Home Gym

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

As an avid exercise enthusiast with a very busy schedule I decided to purchase my first home gym and went with the BodyCraft X2 Family Xpress. The gym membership I was paying for was a waste of money and too far from my home. I tried out the BodyCraft X2 Family Xpress and several other home gyms at the sporting goods store I purchased it at. The BodyCraft X2 is not an entry level model and is for people like me who have experience working out and need heavier weight and several exercises to choose from. With that said, the price of the BodyCraft X2 is quite a bit higher at $3,500 hundred dollars compared to entry models that can be purchased for less than $1,000.

One thing I liked about the BodyCraft X2 was the versatility. It comes with three exercise stations with an optional fourth. I like to have a variety of exercises for every body part and the X2 offers that. It also comes with two 200 lb stacks of weights making it heavy enough for me to do the strength based workouts I like to do.

The exercises are virtually limitless with the X2 as it has fully adjustable seats and an adjustable cable system that lets you simulate dumbbell workouts. Although this is a good machine it is not without its flaws. One major factor is the price, although I feel it is a good investment at $3,500 I realize this will price many people out. Again, for entry level fitness enthusiasts it's probably not the machine for them anyway.

The set up process is very difficult for this home gym. It took me over seven hours to complete. The directions were difficult to understand and had too many steps. If I would've known the set up would be so cumbersome I would have paid the extra to have it assembled. It also takes up a lot of space so you'll need to have a dedicated room for it.
