Shipping and Assembly:

Some retailers, such as Amazon, may offer free shipping (prime members). Otherwise, shipping costs vary depending on where you purchase from and what type of delivery you request.
It takes you approximately 6-7 hours to complete the assembly. The assembly is entirely worth the effort. The construction is not as hard as it seems. It’s just time-consuming. Luckily, you’ll only need to do it once.

There are dozens of nuts and bolts used throughout the machine. Make sure to get all the parts organized before you start and be sure to pay attention to the differences in size and width of the various bolts. Other than that, it works well.

What We Love Most About the EXM2500S Home Gym:

At this price range, you’ll start to see some home gyms designed with just one fixed workout station where you can perform all of your exercises. It’s not ideal because to get a good burn; you want your station designed explicitly for the workouts that you’re performing.

Well, even at this price range Body-Solid is still providing you with three distinctly different exercise stations. There’s a station for presses, pulldowns and leg extensions. There’s a second station for flys and a third station for rows. Thus, each of these stations is well designed thereby providing for an excellent workout.

Final Thoughts on the Body-Solid EXM2500S Home Gym

The StrengthTech EXM2500S Home Gym is an excellent value for the money. Furthermore, it is well constructed and comes with a lifetime warranty. The machine provides you with three different workout stations specifically designed to get the best results out of your workouts.  Highly Recommended.

  1. What I love the most about this machine is that it comes with a lifetime warranty. It makes the product worth its price tag

  2. Thank you for featuring types of equipment like this and having to give us a preview of what we can actually do with the body-solid strengtech exm 2500s home gym equipment.It looks quite promising and I would love to check it out for myself.

  3. I desperately need to lose weight, but having already tried different gyms and never been really able to stick to any, I have been looking for alternatives to exercise at home. I have been trying body weight exercises, but they don’t seem to be delivering any results (or at least not as fast as I would like them to). I have been considering a home gym, but I am worried it might be a bit overwhelming for a beginner with no professional support. I also have an important knee injury that stops me from cardio work like running and walking long distances. I wonder if you think this would be a good option for me. Thanks!

      1. Hi Robert! Thank you so much. I really have a lot of reading for this weekend 🙂 Thanks for everything you’re sharing here 🙂

  4. This is a good exercise machine but a bit pricey. Although pricey, I think this is good enough price since it has multi functions.

  5. This would be a great addition to a more experienced athlete’s home gym. Looks a bit cumbersome to assemble for a beginner though. Perfect for people like me who prefer to workout privately away from a lot of people.

  6. As a person who is bad at assembling stuff, this purchase seems a bit worrisome. If I put it together wrong, I could get injured, right?

    1. Hi Kevin, take the guesswork out of assembling the home gym correctly and preventing possible injury. I suggest that you have it assembled professionally (for around $100.00). Thanks for sharing, Robert

  7. I must say with this equipment it’s as if I have my own gym at home. Been used to the treadmill alone to be use at home. Thanks for the review.

  8. This machine is one stop, bodybuilding equipment, as a gym enthusiast. a lot of multi gym brand in the market. but the specs of this one are massive. The only thing that you have to ask your self is the SPACE because you have to consider after the extended part has been pulled out, but if you have enough area, definitely will go for it. Amazing review Robert Thumbs up

  9. This is an equipment you’ll surely need to achieve that sexy body. I love all of its features, it will complete my gym equipment at home.

  10. Thanks for the review. Always thought equipments like this belonged to the gym, I now have a review of my thinking after reading through this post. I think every home that’s concerned about good health should own one.

    1. Hello Jide, before purchasing a home gym such as the EXM2500S a person needs to answer some questions such as: Will I use it? How much does it cost? Do I have room for it? etc. etc. Thanks for sharing and you’re welcome, Robert

  11. I think I’m too small/short for the machine. It might really stretch me out! But I really wanna buy this! I’m reconsidering this. Thanks for the review though!

  12. The price is quite attractive considering its multi-functionality. If I set this up at home, I’ll be able to maximize my fitness program. It’s kinda like an all-in-one fitness equipment.

    1. Hi, Andrew, you’re right. It’s a multi-functional all-in-one home gym. If you decide to get one for yourself come back and give us an update on what you think after using it for a while. Thanks for joining in, Robert

  13. It’s lifetime warranty speaks for itself. Body solid has come out with a product every exercise hobbyist should hope to have. Thank you for your fantastic review.

    1. Hi Chatingale, the Body-Solid EXM2500S has 3 workout stations allowing a person to get a wide range of different exercises. And with its lifetime warranty, this home gym is an excellent investment. Thanks for joining in, Robert

  14. Compare to other equipment online, this product delivers the same efficiency, but at the cheaper price. I believe that it can help me building strength and muscles in my arms.

    1. Hi Renz, no doubt about it. The EXM2500S will help you build strong muscles throughout your body. At this price point, the features of the EXM2500S home gym gives consumers an excellent value for the money. Thanks for joining in, Robert

  15. This is cool and all but here is the thing unless it comes with a comprehensive guide only then will it be useful. After all not all go to the gym much less knows what they are doing.

    1. Hi Stark, I agree. Not everybody knows how to properly use exercise equipment such as the EXM2500S. There are plenty of u-tube videos demonstrating how to use the machine. Thanks for sharing, Robert

  16. Good post on this home gym. One thing that I love about having a home gym is that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home, you can have a good workout right where you are. This home gym set that you are talking about here seems to be top of the line and you will get your money’s worth for it. Your readers will love what you are sharing.

    1. Hello Norman, Thanks for your nice comments. I agree that this is a great home gym. I hope you and other readers come back and read all of my exercise equipment product reviews. You’ll find a large variety to choose from. They are located on the main menu of product reviews. Thanks again.

  17. Hello
    This looks like a really nice home gym for anyone who has the room for one. All the muscles would surely be targeted with it. I suppose it wouldn’t be very safe for one person to try to put it together themselves. Does it come with a video of different work outs?

    1. Hi Angie, thanks for your question. Unfortunately, no it doesn’t come with a workout DVD. I’ve found a few u-tube videos show people using the gym and there’s supposed to be a workout poster available with the different exercises. I hope this helps and thanks again.

  18. Hi Robert,

    I was looking at reviews for a home multi gym and this body solid strengthtech looks very good indeed. Its perfect because although I am nowhere near 210, I would want to work my way up to that (years away) I do like training my lats and this looks perfect for that as well. The chest press is also a really important so I see it works pretty much the entire body (even the legs! which i have to admit I haven’t been doing) Can i ask though, im 6ft4 would it be OK for me to use?

    1. Hi Freddy, the EXM2500S may be a bit a challenge for your height. Take a look at the Body-Solid Fusion 500. It’s built for full adjustability for any size user. I hope this helps.
