This is a great home gym. It is totally solid and has everything I use when going to the gym. It was very very easy to assemble. There is a video (at the top of this page) and it has every step of the build, I didn't need to look at the instructions once. All the nuts n bolts are clearly labelled / numbered as well as in individual sections. The video also tells you what number to use. It took me on my own just under 3 hours to build. This was one of the more complex flat packs I have done and turned out to be the easiest.
Only real grumble is the weights were spread over 3 boxes, one weight was on its own in a different box and I missed it, set me back 20 mins.
Purchased from the Edinburgh store and the staff were very helpful, especially Kathryn.

Two of us built the gym in around 3 hours. Can be done by one person but easier with two. The instructions were relatively easy to follow however if you are not used to following flat pack type instructions it may be tricky. The gym itself is really good and well worth the money. It has a higher maximum user weight than some in the same price bracket so is suitable for most people. It also has an height adjustable seat so can comfortably accommodate me at 6ft 2.
The only gripe I have is with the Decathlon on-line shopping service.
I ordered the gym through their on-line collect in store service in the knowledge that they had 3 in stock at the Sheffield branch. I thought than one of those units would be allocated and I would be able to pick it up more or less straight away. This wasn't the case and a date of 2 days after was allocated for collection and I was advised that an email would be sent when ready. No email arrived on the allocated collection day so I called the store the day after to be told there had been a computer system problem and delivery to store would be the following day. I waited a couple of days but no email. When I rung the store again they said that the gym had arrived but there was a part missing and it would be another 4 days before this would arrive. On asking why I couldn't just have one that was in stock they gave me the usual "that isn't possible because blah blah blah". At that point I cancelled the order and asked for a refund. 45 mins later I bought one in store...... Decathlon were lucky I wanted this particular gym as I could have easily gone elsewhere...... In summary the Gym is pretty ace but Decathlon need to look at their stock allocation/distribution processes.

I'm really enjoying using this gym equipment and my only regret is I didn't buy it earlier. I'm much more likely to exercise when the equipment is in the house rather than having to travel to the gym. I feel that I'm getting a lot more value than from a gym membership and it's compact in size too.
