Check out this REAL Amazon review:

Over the years, I have spent a ton of money on home gym equipment. Most of it turned out to be either very flimsy or not at all versatile. I have had my gr8flex for over a year, and this machine is by far the best purchase and has gotten the most consistent use because the workout is actually fun.

I have also worked out in many gyms over the years, on all types of equipment, and the moves here feel very natural, unlike most home gyms where every exercise requires an extensive reconfiguration. This workout is convenient, enjoyable, and versatile enough that you can duplicate almost anything you would do in a gym. If you are a guy already doing 350 lb bench presses, this machine is probably not for you, but it will build plenty of muscle for most purposes.

Don't think you are going to put it under a bed in between uses, though. It's heavy. It's too large for most apartments. Regarding attachments, there are many complaints in the reviews about not understanding their use. The resistance bands are self explanatory, but somewhat difficult to attach and remove. I would prefer a weight bar.

The leg pulley system is very hard to use as well, but I get plenty of heavy leg work on the squat stand.

The dip attachment is unnecessary, you can do a dip without it, and the ab accessory also is optional. Judging by the pictures, the move mainly works hip flexors anyway. The core gets plenty of work on the machine as you are doing various compound exercises.

Of all the attachments, I only use the wing bar, for both upper and lower body exercises. It is easy to attach.

The machine is on the floor. Getting off and on will be somewhat awkward at first if you are older, or overweight. I arrange my routine to minimize position changes. I have also gotten more limber using it.

I was a little worried that the resistance for the legs might not be sufficient, but I can get a good lower-body workout on this. Try a super slow-tempo one-legged squat. Still sore months later, after every use. The squat stand is large enough for correct foot placement, unlike some similar models made by other companies. The hamstring exercise with the wing bar is surprisingly challenging.

After more than a year, I am still quite pleased. You really can get a great strength workout with cardio benefits in 20-30 minutes. Don't expect dramatic weight loss without reducing calories, though. But if you are over 50, you'll be surprised how quickly you feel better with short, but intense workouts.

As far as I can tell, this model is the equivalent of an 800-1500 dollar machine sold by infomercial.

I lifted weights for years, then got out of the habit after it was no longer convenient. I have had other home gyms that were nowhere near as simple and versatile. With this equipment in the house, there is no excuse not to strength train.

It is fun to use and makes me feel wonderful. I workout 5x a week, 30-40 minutes, and I have lost at least 30 lbs of fat and gained 5 lbs of muscle. I just wish I had bought it sooner.
