The TUT Trainer Tower is an all-in-one functional trainer that uses custom resistance bands called TUT Plates to mimic a cable machine. It’s a unique option for a home gym that’s great for beginners, trainees with small spaces, and anyone who likes using a cable machine but wants something less expensive and bulky.Manufacturer: TUT FitnessCategory: Functional Trainers

Product Summary & Specs
The TUT Trainer Tower is a unique functional trainer that you can mount to studs in your wall or to a door frame (or to an outdoor patio post like our product tester did). This tall, slim piece of equipment is like a minimal all-in-one home gym. It’s similar to a cable machine, but much smaller and more portable, especially if you don’t use the wall-mount option.
With the TUT Trainer Tower, you can do just about any exercises you might do with a cable machine, including triceps push-downs, lat pull-downs, low rows, hip abduction and adduction, chest press, biceps curls, and more. For certain exercises, such as the low row, you’ll need additional equipment, like a stability ball or bench.
The TUT Trainer Tower package comes with the tower itself, a stud mounting package, 150 pounds of TUT Plates (custom resistance bands that work with the Tower), ankle straps, an aluminum straight bar, two single handles, a carabiner, and a rope clip/cable lock.
The Garage Gym Reviews team loves that the TUT Trainer Tower is so functional yet comes in such a small package: It only extends 6 inches from your wall or door frame and it weighs less than 12 pounds.
