  1. A good review right there. I love the fact that you have looked at the functionality as well as the budget when doing your reviews. Especially for gym equipment, one has to know exactly what features they are looking for to ensure the equipment will be of any benefit, and also since these equipment don’t come cheap, you want to make sure you get something functional. Thank you for the good work

  2. Yes, a weight bench is one of the key elements in our home gym. And I difficult one to purchase (to make up our minds). From all the benches you have listed here, I had already read a couple of review on the Marcy adjustable weight bench. I think I’ll decide to buy it! Thanks for this review.

  3. Hi,
    Great review of the various home gym bench press equipment. Among all, I think I will like the bench press with rack and attachment because I want to work on my lower leg.
    Great information about how they work and prices.
    Thanks for giving me insight before I purchase.

  4. This is a very comprehensive review on the many choices available for weight benches.
    I like to do varied workouts, my choice therefore would be the Reebok bench, it ticks all of my boxes especially the not much room factor.
