    Big B “ex gym rat

    I have lifted weights any way you can, free weights, cable stacks, and nautilus machines. All of them have their advantages and disadvantages. I have owned a home gym(a soloflex machine, a good machine because of the iron plate adaptability, up to 400 lbs)and I have also been a member of a good gym. I stopped using free weights because of lower back problems(loading and unloading plates puts direct stress on the lower back). In the gym I used nautilus machines mostly and cable stacks. The cables stacks are good with any exercise. The problem is the frame for the cable stacks is large and unless you are rich with a huge room reserved for exercising, owning a cable stack machine is not feasible. The nautilus machines are a different story. Some machines are good and some are not. The best nautilus machines I have used in the gym are the life fitness machines. These machines for some exercises are more difficult than free weights(unless your lifting huge weight, over 300 pounds on chest and legs). If you don’t believe me use a life fitness chest press machine and set the weight to the same weight you lift using free weights and you will see. The bodycraft xpress pro is a composite of the cable stacks and the “life fitness type feel” machines in the gym. I have owned the bodycraft for a week and there is no home gym(and I have used several)that compares to this one. The price is steep, but if you are a member of a gym you will pay your gym fee monthly forever(if you are a true gym rat). The bodycraft xpress pro is a one time “fee” with a lifetime warranty on any cable or part. Company’s don’t do this if their machines are not top quality.(This would be bad business) The cable arms are just one of the features that makes this machine top of the line. These arms allow a full range of motion on any conceivable exercise(and there are over 50 with just this part of the machine alone, you can check a bodybuilding book to see this fact) The bench press arm completely adjusts to any size user for the flat(vertical) bench, incline bench, shoulder press, and seated row exercises. This provides the full range of motion for all of these exercises. The leg extension/leg curl exercises is also top quality on movement and range of motion. The lat pulldown feature allows for any type of pulldown movement and variation, all with full range of motion. The most impressive feature for me(a man who at one time was bench pressing 405 lbs, 8 fourty five pound plates plus the fourty five pound olympic bar) is the 2:1 feature which gives a benchpress of 400 lbs. This is the only home gym on the market I am aware of that can do this. If you don’t think this machine is real, go to the bodycraft website([…]) and find a dealer in your area. If you are lucky they might have the machine already set up so you can see for yourself. I was able to do this. After trying the flat(vertical) bench and incline bench, brother was working up a sweat and breathing hard(felt good). If you can’t find a dealer where you can try the machine you can take my word for it!!!!! There is only one drawback(if it applies to you). I am 6’3 and the ab station is uncomfortable for me even with the seat at the lowest point. The high pulley takes care of this for me. Attach the ab strap to the high pulley and perform the crunch like a cable crunch in the gym. Even when you think you have a problem with this machine you don’t.

    Simply the best

    I have a older model of this (2003 or maybe 2004, if I remember correctly), and this machine is great. However, things aren’t perfect when you are 6’3″. For example, the horizontal handles for the bench press are a little low. This shouldn’t be as big a problem on the new one, though, as I noticed there are two sets of horizontal handles. The higher one may take care of the problem. So that only matters if you are buying an older, used model. But on my machine, the seat does not go low enough (or the press bar and origin point of the cables does not go high enough) to really do bench press maneuvers the way I would really like to do them, either with the bar or the cables. With the cables, I am always pushing partially up instead of just straight out because they do not adjust high enough. With the bar, I am pushing slightly down instead of straight out. This, however, may not affect you at all depending upon your height. And again, the new press bar with the higher mount horizontal handle may take care of that on the press bar. The handles on the press bar could be a little closer together also.

    Anyway, even with the height problem, the best thing to me is the “outrigger” cables (what BodyCraft calls “cable station arms”). These pivot around to many angles and allow a whole new group of exercises. Even with normal functions, like bench presses, these cables allow you a new way to do the exercise. Basically, you get your normal workout machine plus a whole other set of exercises you can do with the cable outriggers.

    When putting this machine together, it is probably handy to find a picture on the internet (the BodyCraft website has a 360 spinning view you can use–at least when I wrote this) to look at while assembling the frame parts. The assembly manual is actually pretty good, but it is nice to look at a picture of an assembled machine. The cable stringing is not really difficult. The line drawings in the directions aren’t masterpieces, but are decent enough to understand. I think if the cables were shown as MUCH thicker lines in the drawings, it would have been easier to follow the cable routing. I would suggest putting EVERYTHING together with all the bolts loose before finishing tightening anything. Anyway, it only took a couple of hours to put together, which wasn’t bad at all, I thought.

    Kind of pricey though, but probably cheaper than lesser alternatives. I think just about all exercise equipment seems too expensive. Other than the problem I have because of my height, this machine is excellent. Well, now that I think of it, I bought a different straight bar (arm curl bar)–one that could rotate, because the grips kept spinning off the one that came with the machine and it became very annoying. A tricep rope is a good addition also. Also, and this is a problem with all cable machines I know of, it would be nice if there was a way to add just 5 pounds to a weight stack (instead of 10 because that is what each plate weighs)–like maybe a 5 pounds weight that could be put securely on top of the stack. 10 pounds is quite a bit when you are trying to hit your maximum, especially when doing one arm exercises. It seems a bit strange, too, that BodyCraft would put the seat bottom adjuster pin and the press bar adjuster pin on one side of the machine and the seat back adjuster pin on the opposite side of the machine. What’s that all about? It would be handier to be able to adjust all pins from one side of the machine, so one does not have to reach around to the other side when setting things up. This really is not a big deal at all, but it is a refinement that could be made in the future.

    Other good stuff:

    1. It looks nice. The weight stack covers help tremendously in this.
    2. It takes up very little space for all that it does.
    3. It is heavy duty: larger cross-sectional tubes than many home gyms, big pulleys, etc.
    4. It is very stable on the floor. Nothing I do makes it tilt or move or slide around (I am 6’3″ and 245 pounds).
    5. The cable system is very well thought out.
    6. The exercise chart is good.

    Also, after I recently broke my wrist and had my right arm go very weak due to my arm being immobilized for so long waiting for my wrist to heal, the cable system helped quite a bit because I could separate movement to my weak arm, instead of having my strong arm compensate for my weak one by having strengthening movements tied together to both arms (that might not make sense unless you think about it awhile–it sounded better in my head than it came out written).

    Maybe a problem stuff:

    1. If you have a very low ceiling in your basement like me, you could have a problem. I cut a section out of a ceiling tile so this gym would fit. Note, however that my basement ceiling is lower than normal, so you probably won’t have a problem.

    Other stuff:

    1. You do not get the same weight feel with this as you do with dumbbells. In fact, you get a different feel depending upon which cable you pull on. For instance, the bottom cable at 50 pounds feels like a different weight than one of the out-rigger cables set at the same 50 pounds, and both feel different than a 50 pound dumbbell. This isn’t really a problem, you just should be aware that 50 pounds of weights sliding on a rail with a cable winding around multiple pulleys means you might not necessarily have exactly 50 pounds when you are pulling on it.

    2. The set-up for rigging the 2-1 doubler for the press bar is shown here:
    bodycraftXXXX/pdfs/brochures/gyms/XpressBrochureNew09.pdf (replace the XXXX with .com and scroll down to page 2)
    My older model did not come with the little connector cables or the hookup points on the press bar to rig this up. However, with a little bit of effort, I am sure I can rig this up. I would assume the new models come with this set-up. If it does not, then maybe it is not the newest model and you need to ask to make sure you get the newest set-up.

    Anyway, I would not trade this machine for any machine without the “cable station arms”. With them, you more than double the exercises you can do. So, really, maybe I shouldn’t have complained about the price!

    I am a bit of an Amazon junkie, but this is my first review. I just added this xpro to my home gym and it is fantastic. I cheated by paying someone to set it up for me, and it took an experienced person 8 full hours (would have taken me 2 times that). So be prepared for that. And this may be on the pricey side but, WELL worth it. You can tell it is a quality product that will last for a very very long time. The first time I ordered through Amazon, it was out of stock with the vendor I went through…then switch to another vendor and same thing. I then got a call from Bodycraft who arranged to get it to me working with the supplier. The Bodycraft person was extremely helpful and professional. Like I said, I don’t write reviews, but this is a piece of equipment my whole family will get a lot of use out of. And as for myself, I have wrestled, boxed, and done martial arts – so I have high expectations from work out equipment. You can’t go wrong with this….

    It arrived as promised from Amazon and is everything I thought it would be.

    Something to note: It was packed by the manufacturer extremely well and I’m glad it was for when it arrived (via Amazon’s shipper) the boxes were really beat up. I was afraid that there would be damage or parts missing for the boxes looked like they’d been through Hell. Fortunately, everything was fine. Again, thanks to BodyCraft. They make a great product and they take the care to pack it well enough to withstand a real beating in shipping. Nothing inside was missing or damaged.

    it took 2 weeks for my machine to arrive at my house in semi-rural oklahoma, not too bad. there were 3 huge boxes and 4 small ones, in all it took me about 10-12 hours to construct over my 2 day weekend. i gave the machine its own room, and at 7 feet high and 7 feet long it wont be comming with me should i ever move. this is not some “casual machine” you buy and then leave in a corner collecting clothes; at this price and size, you have to make a commitment to actually use it. putting it together wasnt the hardest thing i’ve ever done but it was a challenge. i found 3 typos that mislabled some of the bolts and where they go (not bad at all if you saw some of the reviews for other machines i’ve read out there), but one of the typos almost made me ruin the seat to the machine. if i find a way to let the manufacturer know about them i’ll try to save you the trouble i went through. all in all i didnt have a hard time putting it together, just make sure you have a good socket set, and some wrenches (sae type). would i recommend this machine to others? only if i thought they would use it because this thing is a monster. theres not a single gym anywhere near where i live, and i’m tired of my clothes leaving marks on my body once i take them off (you know what i mean). so i would say get this machine only if youre serious about getting in shape. now i gotta go, i’m late for my workout.

    The Chemist

    My wife got on a fitness kick and wanted me to work out as well. To be honest, I wasn’t that interested, but she persisted, did the research, and said this was the machine to get. Boy, was she right. I love this thing. I went from never working out to running 2 miles a day and lifting weights five to six days a week. This machine is solid, but amazingly compact for what it offers. The quality rivals what you see in gyms, and it has a lifetime guarantee. I’m in the best shape of my life now, and enjoy working out on this machine. My wife uses it as well, and she loves it, too.

    The gym itself was everything I expected and more. The one bad point was putting this monster together. Many of the instructions were confusing or just plain wrong. Even to the point that we had to call customer service thinking we were missing parts when really they were just pre-installed. At the end we were missing one of the clips used to attach the items to the pulley. I called customer service again and they over nighted not just one but four more of the clips.

    I just bought this gym with the leg press option and love it. I researched it to death online and definitely made the right choice. It shipped from the factory super fast and I had it in 3 days. I needed help carrying 2 of the 7 boxes but the rest were no problem for one person. It’s packed really well and there were no issues with damage even though a couple of boxes were beat up. The instructions are decent but not perfect. It took me a day to assemble the gym and another 3 hours for the leg press by myself. Running the cables is the tricky part but as long as you read ahead and look at the pictures it’s not too bad. If you get the leg press be careful because there’s one cable on the gym that you have to replace with the leg press cable and the main gym instructions don’t tell you up front. The nuts and bolts are labeled very well and that was a huge help. Don’t go crazy if you can’t find some of the bolts because if they’re not in the bolt package it means they’re already on the part. The gym itself is commercial quality for homeowner use. The pulleys are smooth, padding is real good, and adjustments are easy. No worries about quality here. Plus the lifetime factory warranty is there.

    I first saw the Bodycraft Xpress Pro at a nearby specialty gym equipment store — I appreciated a cable machine that actually felt like the ones I used at the gym; I have no time for the flimsy kinds found at some of the “big name” nationwide sports equipment dealers (Sports Authority, Dick’s).

    I have integrated the machine into my P90X routine, so I’m using it in addition to free weights. It gives me variety.

    The machine has held up well, and does everything I want it to…the adjustable cable arms are really useful for adjusting from chest flys to core workouts.

    Set up was a challenge, but not impossible.

    You can get the exact dimensions on BodyCraft’s web site. Box 1/3 75x22x8 133 lbs; Box 2/3 45x42x17 197lbs; Box 3/3 79x11x6 40lbs; Weight Plates 4 Boxes 5x10x5 ea. 190lbs total (3-50lbs, 1-40lbs). Greg at IncrediBody was kind enough to get this info for me prior to ordering from them. Once the boxes are opened; there is no single piece that is too heavy for an average guy. Before assembling; you may want to watch the DVD video in Box 3(see above). There are some exercises you perform from the side. I didn’t know this. Once it’s fully assembled; it would be a real pain to move it. As it turns out, I got lucky and have enough space on the sides.

    This thing is completely in parts. It took half a day to assemble. I took plenty of breaks. But yes, the first workout you get will be moving the boxes and assembling the thing! The instructions aren’t the greatest and I believe there’s an error when you get to the cable assembly diagram. You’ll want to have a ratchet wrench or your build time will be significantly longer. One strange bolt is the allen bolt for the top of the weight stack – it’s a size 8 (I think). That’s very large for an allen wrench so you may not have one in the tool box.

    Most of the vendors only include curbside delivery. Greg at IncrediBody upgraded me to “inside” delivery for free:) Unfortunately, the delivery company would only bring it into the garage. They aren’t insured to bring it in the house. I know you can tip the driver and they’ll bring packages to a specific room but I doubt one man can carry the largest box #2. This delivery company (Road Runner), does not operate on weekends and the delivery window they gave me was like 4 hours. I didn’t have anyone who could accept the package for me on a weekday so I asked the dispatcher if I could have 2 guys deliver it to my basement on a Saturday – and I’d be ok to pay them extra. Sure enough, it pays to ask. A day later, she found 2 guys who could do that for me. So I paid extra but it was well worth it.

    The gym itself is very nice as other reviewers have already mentioned.

    Workout Machine 5 Stars
    Customer Support 6 Stars

    This review is about BodyCraft’s rock solid Customer Support. No if’s, and’s, or but’s.

    Yes, the machine is awesome – but our experience with BodyCraft Customer Support was so extraordinary and unusual it has to be told.

    A used BodyCraft Xpress Pro Home workout machine was purchased 2 months ago. One of the “push -pull” cables on the side arms (the bits that look like bicycle hand brakes) had broken. Called BodyCraft to either buy replacements or get someone to come out to repair it. Let me again state – we had just bought this used.

    One week later – 2 new cables arrived – no charges!

    Jon Wolf, the National Account Manager, had said that installation would be quite simple and intuitive, but that if I had any problem I should give him a call and they would talk me through it. Turns out he was right. Installation was a breeze!

    After dealing with the “Customer Service” division of a very large Cable company the prior week we have experienced the two extremes of the customer service spectrum. BodyCraft was polite and provided a painless (no cost) and timely solution to our problem. The Cable company – not so much.

    BodyCraft is extraordinary!

    Excellent Machine! It’s been a few years since I did any serious weight training, and this machine is just the ticket to get back into it.

  14. 5 out of 5


    Very pleased. I’ve never experienced more percise packaging/labeling/instructions. Very solid equipment.

  15. 5 out of 5


    Being an engineer in the Motorsport industry , I see construction, welding, Fixings on a day to day basis, the first thing i noticed were the Bronze bushes for the pivot points – Very nice attention to detail, All the welding and fabrication is spot on , very very easy to build up.

    In use its so smooth and solid and quiet and there hundreds of ways to use the machine

    It gets a 10/10 thumbs up from me – definitely worth every penny (or dime ).

    I have been using my Xpress Pro with leg press for over 10 years now, several times a week. I have just replaced all the cables and now the system is just like new. The upholstery is still perfect (no tears or rips, no cracking, no worn through spots) and the frame has only minor chipping around the pin insertion for the arm press (expected).
    The system has paid for itself several times over in terms of gym fees, and it’s easier to get to.
    The company stands behind their product and honors the warranty. I did have a few problems with it when it was new, but the company replaced the problem parts with better designed parts that have been reliable ever since.
    FYI: I have calibrated arm press and leg press: The arm press has a mechanical advantage of about 1.09 so that the full stack of 20 (200lbs) is effectively only 183.3 lbs at the lower handle, and the leg press has a mechanical advantage of 0.384 so the 200 lbs stack is effectively 521.4 lbs.

  17. 5 out of 5


    I’ve owned this piece for over 10 years. And is as smooth today as it was day one. The weight selection is definitely enough for 90 percent of people. Customer service is great as well with a lifetime cable warranty getting replacements is no issue.

    We have had it for many years and it not only allows you to do all muscle groups but to exercise them from different angles. The leg machine is an important addition. It has been maintenance-free and is easy to do basic adjustments when desired. This is the best home system we have seen.

    Just received my new XPress Pro Strength System and I am stoked!! Took me about 4 hours to assemble (by myself) and the instructions and packaging made this very easy. The cabling instructions were a bit confusing with the blow-up diagrams, but I was able to follow the cabling from the overall assembly drawing and it was very doable. My first use of the machine is today, but in my testing after assembly, the machine is extremely smooth and fluid. Many accessories came with the machine so moving from one exercise to another should be seamless. I will drop another review after I have had a few workouts in. Thanks again! (and just by the way… I am turning 60 yrs old in a few months and this machine was an early birthday gift to myself!)

    This is a great unit with multiple features. The unit isn’t to tall and can fit in most spaces. The ability to chest, shoulders and back workouts without straining myself is a big reason why I chose this unit over Hoist and Tuff Stuff. Having the cables easily positioned where I can access them is great for pec fly and other various cable workouts. I really like that there is a foot plate to hold me in position while doing row. I have the leg press option as well and due to my bad knees I have to take extra precaution while using a leg press. This leg press however is one of a few that actually works for me because of the design and angles ! The Bodycraft Xpress Pro is one of the best units on the market for the price. Great quality and easy to use !

    PS you can do a 400lb chest press with the Xpress

    About 20 years ago, I purchased an XPress home gym with the leg press addition.
    I thoroughly researched the home gyms available at the time, and one of the reasons I went with the XPress was that it had a lifetime warranty on all parts.
    In 2017 the leg press cable started to wear, so I called Bodycraft to get a replacement cable.
    After speaking to the sales rep, they sent me a new cable for the cost of shipping.
    In December 2020, I noticed the remaining cables were starting to wear and needed to be replaced as well.
    I called Bodycraft, and again they sent me the new cables for the cost of shipping.
    This gym has been used by my wife and I four to six times a week since it was new, and we’ve had no other issues.
    Not only do they stand behind their equipment, they sell you a product that is meant to last.
    Well worth the money.

    I’ve owned this piece for over 10 years and have broken it down 3 times and re assembled and it is still as smooth as the first time. I’m also on the 2nd round of cables. Highly recommend!!
