We use this bench to do stomach crunches as well as light weight lifting. Initial set up was very easy. This product is very easy to make flat for storage. Total time 30 seconds. Bench is also very durable and long. I'm 6' 1" and it's long enough for me. Could easily hold me plus weights which equals about 300 lbs.
How accurate was the sizing? Very Accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High Quality
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
This bench should be off the market, the design is all wrong for a normal person to use. Some one can git heart, or some sort of knee problem. I do not think there was a safe testing done on this bench before putting it on the market. I hope to get my money back.
How accurate was the sizing? The size of this bench is to small, the angle is not right for a average person
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is NO good to small
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? The defect is the design is all wrong for a normal person.
I ordered this item as a christmas gift for my husband. He is 6'4" and fit on it well. We realised right away that the bench was NOT convenient to set up or collapse. It took him 15 minutes to set it up alone. (granted we only tried once) It also didn't look very sturdy or durable. I'd rather save up for one that is more expensive than end up purchasing another bench for him 6 months from now. The material was thinner than what my own purse is made of and seemed loose. It also wobbled a lot while he was trying it out.
As a parent, this would be a great STARTER bench for the anxty teenager who swears he wants to start working out in his room and won't waste the $$$ he wants you to spend on the equipment.
ALSO incase you are like me and hadn't thought of checking out the return policy; it cost $$$ to return it.
