Product Summary

If you’re looking for a high-end functional trainer that enables a full-body workout from the comfort of your home, the Life Fitness G7 Home Gym could be a valuable investment. Featuring 160-pound dual weight stacks, a 2:1 pulley ratio, 20 height positions, and a variety of included attachments, the G7 enables you to perform a seemingly endless amount of exercises. Whether you’re looking to work on small, stabilizing muscles, target specific muscles with fixed motion exercises, or perform a full-body functional workout, the G7 has you covered.

The G7 comes with a pair of medium-length soft strap ergonomic handles, a foot strap, thigh strap, straight bar, and exercise ball. And, since it uses a traditional carabiner for attachments, you can easily build out your gym with various attachments. The machine comes equipped with a multi-grip pull-up bar that allows for three different hand positions. Cable motion technology enables user-defined paths of motion so it can be used in virtually any position.

Costing close to $3,700, the G7 is certainly an investment. Additionally, it stamps out a rather large footprint. Measuring 48.5 inches long, 69.5 inches wide, and 83 inches high, Life Fitness recommends an area of 10 feet by 8 feet to house the machine. While the full weight of the machine is not specified, we know this thing is heavy . You want to be sure you have the space for it as well as the ceiling clearance before making this purchase.
