Marcy Power Tower Reviews
Now we offer to consider in more detail each of the models of this equipment. Each of the models has its own characteristics so it is difficult to say which is better for you.
1. Pro Power Tower TC-4699
The quality of production at a high level. We liked the soft back and armrests. Smooth seams and the quality of the coating material look reliable. Performing vertical knee raise is the most convenient. The crossbar is located on the opposite side from the arms for dips. It requires extra space but it is more convenient to do the exercises.
The horizontal bar has a specific curved shape. It has additional parallel handles. This allows you to perform a variety of pull-UPS grabs. Special coating prevents palms from slipping. There are push-up handles at the bottom. They have a non-slip coating for safer push-UPS.
- The best price
- Weight Capacity 300 lbs
- Good quality
- A slight tilt of the frame seemed comfortable for training
- There are no protective pads on the rear legs
2. Fitness Tower TC-3515
For a more comfortable exercise provides a soft backrest and armrests. Handles contain a non-slip coating. The lower stops for push-UPS have an inclined shape. Given the inclination of the body during the exercise, it is convenient for the hands. But when we decided to test their hands a little slid down.
The horizontal bar as well as most of the power tower of this brand is curved and allows you to perform pull-UPS with different grips. The design of the model is simple. On the legs on both sides there are protective pads to avoid damaging the floor surface. The main advantage of TC-3515 is reliability and durability.
- High strength and stability
- Weight Capacity 300 lbs
- Comfortable handles and horizontal bar
- Push-up handles without anti-slip coating
3. Marcy TC-3508
Horizontal bar and horizontal bars are located on one side. But this does not interfere with the exercise. Bars, if necessary, can be raised up and will not interfere. The horizontal bar is curved. Most of it is covered with non-slip coating. Handles on parallel bars are also non-slip. The armrests are soft and comfortable.
This model is quite high quality. We found it quite comfortable and durable. We recommend that you additionally view the video review.
- Takes up not much space when installed in a corner
- Parallel bars are raised for greater convenience
- There is a roller for crunches
- Push-up handles are not located at the optimum distance
4. Marcy TC-5580
So that we liked. Wonderful parallel bars. They have an optimal size and non-slip coating of the handles. To perform DIPS comfortably. Similarly, the horizontal bar is covered with non-slip coating and has a convenient shape. The height of the power tower allows for convenient pull-UPS.
What’s wrong? The bar for doing push-UPS is located inside the frame. If you are medium build you will already be tightly wrung out. The position of the hands is not the most comfortable.
- High frame strength
- Takes up little space
- Excellent parallel bars
- It is inconvenient to perform push-UPS
5. Marcy TC-1800
You will be able to perform basic exercises – pull-UPS, Dips, vertical knee raise. So you can comfortably take the original position on the frame provided footboard. Parallel bars are folding. Lifting them up is simply to use the lock and the performance of tightening will be more comfortable.
For greater stability, a special pipe is provided in the rear part of the structure. But when testing this model, the power tower swayed slightly. At the same time, there are no protective pads on the legs and we were afraid for the surface of the floor covering. It would be better to use along with your fitness mats.
- Parallel bars folding
- Affordable price
- Takes up little space on the floor
- No push-up handles
- There is no possibility to be tightened by a narrow grip
It is safe to say that Marcy Power Tower is quite high quality and functional at an affordable cost. They will be a great choice when shopping for a home gym. If you have any questions – we welcome feedback and your comments.
