Product Summary

The REP Fitness Ares Cable Attachment was named after the god of war. If you’re looking for a multi-use attachment for your power rack, and are tight on room in your home gym, this could be a great option for you. Since it attaches to your pre-existing power rack, it doesn’t take up much extra space. Plus, you’re able to perform exercises like lat pull downs, low rows, wood chops, single-arm chest presses, and many more.

Each weight stack has 260 pounds with the option to purchase an upgrade to increase the weight an additional 50 pounds. However, it is worth noting the attachment has a ratio of 2:1, which means a 200 pound stack will feel like 100 pounds. I’m a fan of the adjustability of the front pulleys, because you’re able to turn them in a full circle to perform more movements and not be limited by the rack.

Curious if your power rack will work with this attachment? According to the REP Fitness website, only the PR-4000 and PR-5000 series are compatible, but you might be able to use this if you have 1-inch holes in your uprights. If you have a non-REP Fitness power rack, I would recommend speaking with REP customer service to confirm your rack will work with this attachment.
