Body-Solid G5S Perfect Pec Home Gym


Similar to the G3S, but this gym comes with an upgraded 210lb. stack and the Perfect Pec™ Station. Several other upgrades as well make this a higher performing machine. In addition to the In-Home warranty, this gym carries the Body-Solid Commerical Warranty.


210lb. Selectorized Weight Stack: Upgradable to a 260lb. stack
Multi-Grip Press Arm delivers deep and effective muscle interaction for chest, incline and shoulder press movements. No need to sit on the floor to perform rowing exercises, simply grasp the mid row handles for an exhilarating mid and lower back workout that will increase flexibility, build strength and relieve lower back stress.
Perfect Pec™ Station: Equipped with swivel arms, adjustable range of motion, and designed for both unilateral and bilateral movements so you can get the maximum stretch for deep muscle toning, and the most incredible upper body development possible.
SmoothGlide Bearing System™: Glides you friction free through the press and leg developer stations with a biomechanically accurate pivot point
Integrated Leg Developer CAM:  Prevents resistance drop-off at the end of the exercise movement and provides consistent resistance throughout full range of motion.
Leg Extension Cuffs: Self-aligning and contoured, they automatically adjust throughout the exercise movement
Gas-Assisted Seat Post: The telescoping chrome plated post will adjust easily and smoothly.
Flip Up Seated Row Foot Plate: Stabilizes your body when using heavy resistance

Note: Product photos above may show aluminum pulleys and other options not included with the base model.
Note: Some photos above of the exercises show a difference press arm design. The current design is shown on the default(first) photo.

Solid, Easy to Use Home Gym - D. Grant
Rate: 5 out of 5
Bought this from a local supplier after talking to several salesmen and doing some test drives.

This machine is not the typical, flimsy, entry-level crap you see at chain stores - it is built more like commercial gym equipment (not surprising, as Body Solid is a major commercial gym supplier) Lots of steel square tubing and 1/2" bolts here.

All exercises are connected to a single weight stack with the usual weight pin via a clever system of interconnected pulleys and cables. The mechanical advantage provided varies by station, meaning that the weight felt at a given station can be higher or lower than the actual weight stack - meaning that many exercises can offer different weights to different muscle groups without having to change the weight pin.

All settings on the machine (seat height, etc) are adjusted via spring-loaded, captured pop-pins, just like commercial equipment. As a nice touch, the seat has an integral gas cylinder that makes height adjustment easy with no wrestling with the machine. Re-configuration between exercises is kept to a minimum, and what little is required can be done in a matter of seconds. This isn't a machine that requires major setup changes between exercises, meaning more time exercising and less time futzing with the machine.

As far as exercises go, you get a solid set of basic stations (where, like a dedicated single-use machine) the intended exercise is immediately obvious: chest press, leg extensions/lifts, pectoral flies, pulldowns, forward row, weighted crunches, and a bar that can be used for lifts/bicep curls. There are also a series of secondary uses for each station where the use isn't immediately obvious (and in some cases, a little awkward) but where, admittedly, other muscle groups can be worked.

For those looking to establish a good basic weight training regimen, and where you don't have easy access to a full gym, this is a great machine that gets the job done with little to no tradeoffs involved with this being a "home" gym; it really is a very impressive bit of engineering.

The one fly in the ointment is the assembly instructions. The instructions as given are clear and comprehensive, and the hardware for assembling the machine is bagged individually per step. But the design of the machine has materially changed several times without the instructions being updated. In some cases, whole parts have been deleted (with the hardware being changed to reflect the change) in others, subassemblies (the main seat) now come pre-assembled but still have the old hardware bags, leaving surplus hardware.

I was able to suss it all out - but I also have a mechanical background. I can see how anyone hoping to just follow instructions could wind up hopelessly lost and frustrated in very short order. If you are not particularly mechanically adept, find a friend who is.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this product.

If you want a great home gym, BUY THIS ONE - YOU WILL BE VERY PLEASED!! I bought this gym about 4 months ago and it was the best purchase I've made in years. My son and I use it on a regular basis, and it is changing the shape of our bodies. The quality of this gym is second to none, it is built to last. I am 100% satisfied!! :)

Bought this G5S a couple of months ago and recently added the leg press GLP attachment. Thoroughly impressed with the quality of the components and overall equipment. This is definitely commercial grade equipment. Very pleased with my purchase. Also very happy with the service - which is good as they promise. Real live people to speak and they delivered on their warranty promise. I had a couple of odds and ends that either were missing, and in 2 cases, broke during assembly (imagine a big monkey with a large hammer and a few hundred parts). Body Solid happily and quickly shipped the replacement parts. No cost, no fuss. Happy customer.
