IT's amazing. I havent found one thing in the gym I go to that I cant do with MaxPro in my own home. Kudos to the inventor. It's got a little AI going on, very cool
Able to connect with blue tooth and see the activity but it's not recording the activity. Will give it a few more tries.
If you have space for this, then just get it! It absolutely expands the possibility of what the MAXPRO can do. I haven’t had any issues with it. I was worried about the types of screws included to anchor the plates to the wall. However, this is a flat plate anchored not a TV mount that extends outward causing a lot of torque on the anchor points. I.e it is secure and I don’t worry about pulling it off the wall.
My fitness journey has transitioned as I have gotten older. Gone are the days of throwing around huge amounts of weight with no regard to my joints. Currently, I use the MAXPRO to get my weight lifting in. My workouts usually involve a strength training class (which gets the HR up) and then I transition to a weight class on the MAXPRO.
Using the MAXPRO is easy. It will take you a few sessions to get the hang of it and a few more sessions for the pulleys to smooth out. The unique thing about it is that it only gives resistance on the concentric phase. Think of starting a lawn mower. I personally like this because it feels safer on the joints for me. I know that in bodybuilding, eccentric muscle training is essential to hypertrophy. However, if you are looking to become a bodybuilder, you should search elsewhere.
This gives a great resistance/weighted workout without having a bunch of weights. Am I missing out on some eccentric training? Of course. But that is why I do a strength training classes in addition as well as resistance band training in the evening. I would recommend getting the complete elite package. I know it is pricey, but you really miss out on the bench and the secruity of the wall mount.
Having purchased the MaxPro about a year and a half ago, I recently decided to buy the bench. The MaxPro has been an incredible addition to my home gym, which I decided to create when Covid hit and LA Fitness was no longer available. I live in an apartment and can't attach anything to the wall, but with the addition of the bench I can do everything I need to do, and more. The bench itself is beautiful, rock solid steady and worth every penny.
Works get love how I can switch workout in like 20 seconds
Love it so light and portable very smart idea
Love it so easy to change the work out.. a little wobbly at first but everything straightens out in about 2 weeks
I bought the Max Pro with a slim line wall and converted my adjustable Weider Bench to be a combo of the wall mount and the bench. I used the 2ft sections in 3 different places. It attached to 1" tube steel. I primed and painted it and it's what I imagined it would be. I use this bench for everything except squats. I love it for tricep pulldown, lat pulldown, seated row. I was hoping the pull of the Max Pro would feel a little better and a downside is adjusting left and right drum to pull the same amount of weight. It was worth my money though.
Easy operations and easy to install.
Small, portable, easy to use! I was looking for a cable machine to compliment my free weights, and this works so good for me! Changing from light to heavy is super quick, and trust me, it can get heavy! I use the door mount system and it works for my needs perfectly.
My favorite, addicted and love it!! 😁👍
I thought for a thousand dollars this would be a quality product. I was wrong. It's very jerky and the thought of 5 lbs. per number setting is false. I've been using it for 3 weeks with hope it would get better and still hasn't.
It was slightly troublesome to get one of these in Germany. Eventually I got one and it's really making the portability so much better. Gotta just love it.
However I think it would be reasonable to ship the MaxPro itself in the Backpack. Even if that makes it slightly more expensive but I think that would be super senseful.
I have been absolutely loving my MAXPRO. I got a refurbished/reconditioned unit and was very pleased. Everything came packaged in the original box, was nice, and appeared new. The machine and app itself are awesome.
I love it plenty of room for my water bottle my gym shorts my tommy copper sleeves it's great
Well made, high quality and easy to use. The versatility of use is my favorite aspect.
Bench is great. I just wish that it inclined. It is very sturdy and light weight.
Still no change one side jerks a different pressure the the other and they both DONT pull evenly ,2nd machine - the first I had for over 30 days and used as instructed
I really want to give MaxPro a 5 star review, but it’s not quite there. The machine seems well built and will hopefully last several years. The wall track and bench are bomber. However, I tend to experience a bit of a “catch” on one side of the machine during heavier resistance. It’s not a deal breaker, but it’s not smooth resistance and can be uncomfortable. Almost feels like the cord is winding incorrectly. I was initially hopeful that it was simply the unit I had, but upon replacement (great customer service BTW) the new machine started doing it within a month of owning it too. I think it’s something I’ll just have to live with-perhaps it’s user error. Besides that, really love the concept and company.
The track has unlocked the MAXPRO for us. With it, there are virtually no exercises or routines we can’t accomplish and can specifically target muscle groups based on angles and height. Love the track. Well built, easy to put together.
I've had a few different benches and was worried this one would be less sturdy because the legs fold in. I am happy my worries were for nothing. When folded, I can put it up against the wall or under a bed to save space. When the legs are down, the bench is sturdy. There's no wobbling at all even though the legs are on hinges. Very happy I chose to purchase the full package.
I bought the MaxPro and the slim line track two weeks ago. So far, so good. I bought it primarily for lower body (squats, good mornings, hip abductors, leg raises, bridges). I'm very limited on space and the MaxPro eliminates the need for a squat rack and cable machine. I'm building slow to prevent injury, but the MaxPro provides plenty of resistance. When combined with the bench and slim line track, there is nothing that the MaxPro can't do, although you might prefer free weights or resistance bands the MaxPro can still do it and safely (free weight squats and bench presses can be dangerous even with a spotter). I compliment my MaxPro with a folding bench, pull up bar, Powerblocks (rows, military presses) and resistance bands (side bends). Even if I did have the room, I don't think I would buy free weights. The MaxPro is safer, simpler and can be used in any room of the house (as long as you don't need the slim line track - although you could use the door mount). Where the MaxPro really shines is to be used as a cable machine (kick backs, hip abductors, pulley lateral raises, etc). The downsides are no eccentric training and the price. Hopefully, the price can come down in the future so this machine can be available to a wider audience of fitness enthusiasts.
