I have used this type of equipment in gyms so decided to purchase one.It is very sturdy and made well but needs some improvements. The pads you lean against have two problems.....1. Being split is very uncomfortable. 2. They are made from cheap materials and I can already see wear in a week. The other problem is the height adjustments are too far apart so you end up too short and lean to far over or too tall and can't lean over comfortably.
