Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym
The Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym is meant for those looking to tone up or lose weight with resistance type workouts. This machine is also meant for bodybuilders who need to do extra work outside of the heavy lifting at the gym, in order to achieve a more ripped physique and to improve muscle endurance through high rep exercises. The biggest gripe for most users of this machine is that the leg workouts are not intense enough. There are options to upgrade to higher resistance versions of this machine to quell that issue though. Assembly time for this machine is said to be quite quick and easy, averaging around an hour and a half in time.

Marcy Diamond Elite Smith System with Linear Bearings
The Marcy Diamond Elite Smith System with Linear Bearings is meant for those looking to gain muscle mass, tone up and/or lose weight through muscle building. This machine actually replicates a large number of exercises that are available in large public gyms.
