I love to squat. Maybe it’s because I compete in weightlifting—OK, it is because I compete in weightlifting—but there are few things as satisfying as loading some heavy weight plates onto my best Olympic barbell, and after a nice set of five reps, rocking that heavy weight back onto some heavy-duty J-cups in a squat cage.

But not all spaces have the room for a nice big squat cage. In smaller home gyms, space is a commodity, which is why a company like PRx provides compact folding racks to keep the floor space open for other workouts and exercises.

One of their latest additions is a sturdy four-post cage that folds compactly and easily. But, is this premium product worth the hefty price tag? In this PRx Profile Folding Full Cage review, we’ll go over this folding cage and its construction and performance to see if this folding squat cage is worth a look for your garage gym.

We’re Not Cagey About Power Cages

At Garage Gym Reviews, we’re experts on fitness equipment, with a team consisting of certified personal trainers, lifting coaches, and lifelong athletes. Folding and freestanding, we’ve tested dozens of different rigs for squatting—the best squat racks, squat stands, half racks, power racks, and full cages on the market—and we never shy away from giving our honest opinion.

For the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage, GGR Everything lead reviewer Lindsay Scheele took it through several squat workouts and noted its aspects of construction, versatility, and stability, as well as its overall value.

A Quick Look at the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage

PRx Performance started in 2013 but really took off in 2017 when they appeared on an episode of “Shark Tank,” where they secured a deal with Kevin O’Leary. Much of their line of gym equipment focuses on creating high-quality fitness equipment and compact storage solutions for small spaces.

Some of their space-saving equipment includes a wall-mounted folding bench, folding squat racks, and even heavy-duty wall-mounted storage shelves for dumbbells, kettlebells, and other weights. GGR founder Coop Mitchell tested out one of their more popular rack and bench combos—the PRx Performance Profile Squat Rack and bench, which uses gas shocks to secure the rack on the wall while not in use.

Like the Profile PRO Squat Rack, the PRx Performance Profile Folding Full Cage is another compact solution for a squat rack, but this time is for a four-post cage. Available in nine different colors, it can really pop in any gym setting. If you enjoy squatting inside of a cage, but lack the floor space to have one out all the time, this is a fantastic solution.

Before You Buy

  • While PRx offers a budget-friendly series of adjustable weight benches and squat stands, the Profile series is a premium offering. All their folding racks in this series are made with 3-inch-by-3-inch steel uprights and are rated to support 1,000 pounds.
  • The Profile Folding Full Cage offers two different height options for higher or lower ceilings. The 89-inch version will suit most 8-foot ceilings, while the 95-inch cage will suit a ceiling height of 9 feet or more.
  • A lot of its price comes from the design of having a compact four-post cage able to be folded and locked out with only one pin to secure the kipping pull-up bar. Comparable folding cages are cheaper but use several more pins, which will take up time to fold and unfold.
  • No worries on your gym floor; the uprights have plastic footplates to prevent any damage to the cage or your flooring.

Is the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage Worth It?

As with all fitness equipment, the value of the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage depends on what you want to get out of it. At $2,499, it’s a pricey squat cage, even for a folding rack, but it’s high-quality and heavy-duty as well. It also allows for you to keep the functionality of your home gym’s floor space. 

If you’re in need of a compact solution for your home gym, and you want a four-post cage, this is one of the better options. Although priced on the high end, the cage uprights fold in and out easily, only requiring you to pin the pull-up bar to the cage.

Folding out the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage

Lindsay rated the value of the full cage a 3.5 out of 5, mainly because if you don’t need a four-post cage, your options open up to higher-value folding racks. PRx’s Profile Squat Rack is half the price at $1,299 (with an optional multi-grip pull-up bar as well). Rogue Fitness’s RML-3W is a two-post rack that costs only $605, and REP Fitness has their PR-4100 folding squat rack at $499.

“While these two-post racks may not provide the same stability that the PRx Profile Full Cage will, they’re good value options for anyone on a budget,” Lindsey mentions. She adds, “I would still take the PRx cage home, though. It’s pricey, but a super solid rack.”

Using the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage 

The PRx Profile Folding Full Cage operates like a normal heavy-duty four-post rack, except with the ability to fold in to save space. Folding it is very easy to do, as you just lead the posts in or out, and the cage has stoppers to easily locate where the post should be.

Lindsay notes that as far as attachments go, the PRx Folding Full Cage doesn’t include much—only J-cups. However, the 5/8-inch holes and 3-inch-by-3-inch uprights should make the cage compatible with most power rack attachments out on the market, from the likes of Rogue, REP, Titan, or Sorinex.

Additionally, PRx has developed quite a few attachments for the squat racks, too, including a landmine attachment and a cable and pulley. While it isn’t included in the squat cage, there’s a good amount of versatility possible, leading Lindsay to rate the cage a 4 out of 5 for its versatility.

Durability and Construction

Made with 3-inch-by-3-inch 11-gauge steel uprights, the cage is built solid, leading Lindsay to rate the construction a 4.5 out of 5. Fully constructed, the squat cage is rated for 1,000 pounds, which is going to provide more than enough support for most strength athletes.

Man squatting using the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage

 The cage mounts on wall studs, which PRx recommends be evenly spaced at 16 or 24 inches. Otherwise, you’ll need a ledger board to help distribute the weight.

The holes of the uprights are 5/8 inches, spaced 2 inches apart with 1-inch Westside hole spacing along the bench press zone. Each hole is marked with laser-cut numbers for easy reference.

The uprights have a solid, even powder coating, which is available in nine different colors. While color options aren’t a dealbreaker all the time, it’s a nice touch to have so many options to fit a home gym’s color scheme.

Footprint

When folded out, the PRx cage will stick 54.75 inches out from the wall, and is 54.5 inches wide, so you’ll need to make sure you have that sort of space available in your home gym for the power rack to function properly. When it’s folded in, however, the rack sticks out only 8 inches, making it an incredibly compact folding four-post rack. You can choose a rack height of 89 or 95 inches, so it can be suitable for low or high ceilings.

Man folding the PRx Profile Full Cage

Folding the uprights is simple, as you simply push the posts in or out. The posts rotate on guides that stop at 90 degrees when you pull them out, making it easy to know where the post needs to be. When the posts are out, the pull-up bar swings up and is secured by a pin. 

Guide stoppers on the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage

Although it’s a compact folding rack, it’s not flimsy in the slightest while you’re squatting. Lindsay rates the stability a perfect 5 out of 5, saying, “I was so surprised at the stability and sturdiness of this rack. With it being anchored into studs in the wall and having four uprights, this makes for a super solid rack.”

PRx Profile Folding Full Cage vs Rogue RML-390FULLW Folding Power Rack 

Rogue RML-390FULLW Folding Power Rack

Rogue RML-390FULLW Fold Back Wall Mount Power Rack

GGR Score: 4.2 starstarstarstarstar

Product Highlights

The RML-3FULLW is our most space-efficient and uncompromising Fold Back Power Rack to date. Equipped with (4) 90” Monster Lite uprights in your choice of a dozen different custom color finishes, this full wall-mounted unit has a 30” inside depth with a set of 30” Strap Safeties included standard with all orders.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • 11 color options
  • Space-saving
  • Made in the USA
  • 11-gauge steel

Cons

  • Pricey
  • No customization options on height or depth
  • Must be bolted into the wall

One of the biggest reasons to go with the Profile Full Cage is the four-post rack design, so it’d be best to compare it to another four-post space-saving rack, like this one by Rogue Fitness. The Rogue RML-390FULLW Folding Power Rack (try to say that five times fast!) is a folding full cage like the one from PRx, with a lot of the same features of the PRx—11-gauge steel, 5/8-inch hole sizing, made in the USA, and even different color options, which is rare to see from Rogue.

The most obvious difference between the two wall-mounted cages on paper is the pricing. The PRx Profile Folding Full Cage is about $1,000 more expensive than the Rogue folding squat rack. Unlike the PRx Profile, the Rogue cage not only comes with J-cups, but also safety straps.

Because the squat cages seem so similar, the price hike might leave some scratching their heads. However, the main difference is in the design and convenience of the cages. The wall-mounted rack from PRx requires only one pin to connect when folding the squat cage in or out, which is for the pull-up bar. The foldable uprights are engineered with stoppers to only go out to 90 degrees, which makes folding the cage out and in very easy.

The Rogue rack, on the other hand, has a few more pins to maneuver—a total of six pins. Two pins secure the kipping bar, but a pin secures each of the crossmembers along the wall when folded out and folded in. Compared to the PRx, that’s a lot more work to fold your rack out, or to put it back up.

While it’s up to the person on whether an extra $1,000 is worth the difference, the design of the Profile PRO rack may be enough to justify it.

Customer Experience 

The PRx Performance Profile PRO Folding Full Cage is covered by a limited lifetime warranty covering defective materials or workmanship during the lifetime of the product. The “lifetime” of the cage ends when the cage is deemed no longer usable for reasons other than those covered by the warranty.

PRx also provides a 30-day return policy on their fitness equipment. Items must be unused in their original packaging to receive a refund, and you’ll need to show your receipt. You’ll be responsible for return shipping costs as well as a 10% restocking fee. The warranty, financing, and return policy are fairly standard, leading Lindsay to rate their policies a 4 out of 5.

There are multiple ways to contact PRx Performance through their website—including phone, email, live chat, and a contact form. Additionally, you can schedule a consultation with them if you’re deciding on a squat rack. Lindsay reached out to customer service and they were both prompt and helpful, leading her to rate the customer service a 4.5 out of 5.

Ordering and Assembling the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage

The PRx Profile Folding Full Cage can be purchased on prxperformance.com after choosing your rack height and color. Financing options are available through Bread Pay starting at $72 a month. Be mindful that interest rates will begin at about 6.99% though.

Wall mounts on the PRx Profile Folding Full Cage

The squat cage uses 5/8-inch hardware to connect the uprights to the crossmembers, and the PRx Profile rack must be mounted on the wall; the cage comes with all the hardware needed for assembly. The wall brackets can be mounted on studs spaced 16 or 24 inches on center, so long as they’re evenly spaced. If the studs aren’t spaced evenly, you’ll have to use a ledger board to help distribute the rack weight.

Customer Reviews

As of this writing, there are no customer reviews of the Profile Folding Full Cage. Because the power cage is fairly new, we’ll update this section as reviews come in.

Final Verdict of Our PRx Profile Folding Full Cage Review

The PRx Profile Folding Full Cage is a premium, high-end squat cage that can solve quite a few space issues in your home gym. If you aren’t committed to having a four-post power rack, though, then there are more affordable options with two-post racks. 

However, if you want the stability of a four-post rack in your foldable squat rack, then the PRx Profile cage is a solid option—a premium price for a premium design.
