5.0 out of 5 stars | Quality and Sturdy Weight Bench - Quick to Assemble and Easy to Store!
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Overall Impression: I bought a weight bench because I was looking for ways to increase strength exercises at home during COVID. After using this bench for a few weeks, I wanted to share my thoughts. In summary: It is easy to assemble, quick to fold/store, and strong/comfortable to use - I would buy this bench again in a heart beat! Assembly is Quick and EASY! (2-4-6!) The majority of the bench comes arrives folded and pre-assembled , all that’s left is: 2 (removable) pins to stabilize, 4 pieces of foam cushioning for leg comfort, and 6 screws/washers to attach the front/back base supports! It honestly took me less than 5 mins, from opening the box to testing it out. The assembly guide is just a few pictures, but assembly is pretty intuitive and all tools are included. (See my video!) Folding/Storing: Simply removing the two “stabilizing pins” allows the bench to be collapsed and folded for storage quickly (see my videos!). There are two ways it can be stored (see my collage photo for visual and dimensions): 1)It can be folded flat for storage under a bed (35 inch length, exactly 10 inch height clearance,), 2)It can be folded vertically to be stored in a closet or against a wall If your plan is to store it under your bed, I suggest measuring the distance from the ground to your bed. My bed has 13 inch clearance and the folded bench was easily able to slide under. Impressions Using The Bench - The bench frame is solid metal and it well soldered and all parts are well attached. It feels sturdy, and I felt supported using it. -I am 5foot 11inches and the height of the bench felt good. -Once set up, adjusting the angle of the back is quick. the frame (metal) can fit into several (metal) ’grooves’. There are several positions ranging from seated, various incline positions, flat, and a slight decline position. -The adjustable end caps made it quick and easy to fix any ‘rocking’ - leveling out the bench is as easy and rotating the end cap at the corner that is rocking. -The shin/foot supports are comfortable, and I enjoyed using the bench for core work (and added bonus, IMO!) -The one part that I was surprised at, was seeing the red stripe around the outside of the bench. Initially, I was expecting this bench to be fully black. I think that Packaging: I could tell that a lot of thought went into how to package this product - the packaging was well designed and secure. I appreciated that the majority of the product packaging was recyclable (except 2 pieces of plastic-foam and 4x six inch squares of plastic wrapping). There was no styrofoam or excessive plastic usage, which I also appreciated! PROS: -Easy assembly -Quick and Easy folding with various easy storage options -Easy to convert from seated/flat/incline/decline positions. -Metal framing with solid build -Comfortable (standard) height -Leveling out end caps -stylish -well packaged CONS: -Selecting the color option not clear in ordering process. -No ‘Con’ with use or build of product! VIDEO: Easy Assembly and Storage For anyone who is more of a visual-learner, I made a 3-minute quick video to walk through the quick assembly and demonstrate how easy it is to collapse/fold the bench! I sometimes struggle with printed instructions so I hope this helps someone!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Nice Bench
It is as described. Sturdy and of good quality. I have no complaints. Feels safe when in use. In my opinion the height of the bench in just right for me. The anti-slip feet keep it stable even when leaning. Using weights it seems easy to keep balanced. The adjustable back ranges from fully flap to nearly fully straight up. I like the foamy “leg rest/braces” they are comfortable and well placed. The bench in heavy but not too much to move around when needed. The padding is not too slippery or sticky when in use. I very much like how this thing folds up if needed. Less than 12 inches high and about 36 inches long. Can slide under a bed or similar if needed. When up it is about 20 inches high (similar to most other benches ) There are 7 different bench backing adjustments that is more than I need but is nice and easy to adjust. Easy to assemble on arrival. I have no complaints, it appears to be a worthy bench that will provide years of quality service. -

5.0 out of 5 stars | Really high quality weight bench with great price！
Really high quality weight bench with great price！It's lightweight， light enough for my son（12 years old） to move, but very sturdy and comfortable. It was very easy to install as it is described on the bench page and it came with all the tools I needed in order to put it together. I'm 5'11, weight about 190 lbs, i had no issues with it wobbling or not being able to hold my weight so far. I need requipment which will save space and cost not so much, i think my choice was great. I tried already lots of different workouts with it, even do ab exercises by putting it in the recline position and propping my feet up on the bench. Highly recommend to anyone who loves to do home excercises. The only thing the color of the bench edges seems different as it shown on the page, but does no affect to use at all and looks nice!

1.0 out of 5 stars | Misaligned bolts
The assembly was easy enough but when I had to attach the last bolt on both ends of the bench they didn't fit properly. When I tried to put them in, it stripped the bolts. I got replacement bolts but then when it was finished it was too wobbly to be functional as a weight bench. As much as I liked the prospect of its stow-ability it isnt worth it. I recommend finding something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great bench that’s easy to store!
Ever since the pandemic, we’ve been trying to add more items to use for workouts at home. This bench is a great addition. This was fairly easy to assemble. The instructions weren’t great, but the assembly is basic and easy enough to figure out. The bench is comfortable, sturdy and easy to adjust. And it’s light enough to easily move out of the way or to where it’s needed. Even better is the fact that you can completely fold it up and store it. No complaints!
