The Body-Solid product list is categorized into five different lines which include 17 home gym products. The five lines are:
All but one of the 17 home gyms is based on a pulley system which makes them compact and less expensive to produce. One of the gyms is a free weight unit which is somewhat larger and more expensive. In addition to the gym systems, Body-Solid also carries benches, racks, dumbbells, bars and collars, and more.
The endurance line is a complete separation from the gym system, offering elliptical machines, treadmills, and exercise bicycles. The Body-Solid Tools line goes even further in offering such things as medicine balls, yoga mats, jump ropes, fitness rolls, and much more. Body-Solid aims to be the one-stop shop for quality exercise equipment and accessories.
Body-Solid manufactures five different product lines for a commercial customer base that includes fitness centers and gyms, professional sports teams, fire and police departments, medical facilities, rehab facilities, military and government entities, and more. Their ability to provide customized fitness solutions to their commercial clients has further earned Body-Solid a reputation as one of the best fitness equipment suppliers in the nation.
Body Solid Warranties
Any exercise equipment manufacturer worth the time and effort of looking into should provide at least a minimum product warranty. Body-Solid goes well beyond the minimum, offering a variety of warranties based on product line and model. The Best Fitness line, for example, offers three different in-home warranties ranging from 3 to 15 years. The warranties cover the frame, labor, and wear and tear on some parts.
The Endurance and Body Solid lines carry in-home warranties good for the life of the products. These warranties cover absolutely everything from pads to pulleys to various other parts, and the company is not afraid to promote them with very emphatic language on their website. Commercial products carry warranties that are referred to by the company as "commercial rated".
Body Solid Website and Marketing
Body Solid markets their products through a variety of outlets including their website. The website is among the cleanest and most professional-looking in all of the fitness industry, preferring an informative display of information rather than aesthetic quality with no real content.
The site contains pictures and descriptions of all products including retail pricing. Furthermore, each product has a listing of specifications, benefits to using it, a picture gallery, and a downloadable owner's manual. Commercial clients can click a link to receive a quote on volume purchases.
For individual consumers of home-based equipment for home workout routines, it's not possible to buy directly from the Body-Solid website. But the site does contain a store locater which is as simple as choosing your state or entering your zip code. The store locater searches the company database and returns a list of local retailers from among hundreds across the U.S. and Canada. The store locater can also be used in any of the other countries where Body-Solid products are sold.
Other than the fact that some of their equipment can be rather pricey, there's nothing about this company that raises red flags. Consumers looking for quality home gym equipment owe it to themselves to take a look at what Body-Solid as the offer. If nothing else, you'll get an idea of what's out there in the world of high-end home gym equipment.
