Pin Loaded Gym Equipment
Pin Loaded Gym Equipment is also referred to as Single Station Gym Equipment and Selectorised Gym Equipment (selectorized in the U.S.) as the resistance or weight is adjusted via a selector rod or pin that selects the amount of weight to be lifted by the user.
Quality varies dramatically from decent quality entry level machines starting around $2,000 to mid-range machines in the $2,000-$3,000 price point and premium grade machines around $3,000 to $4,000. Now prices also vary dramatically between brands but don’t be fooled by this. We have compared the specs and overall build quality of our products. As an example, our mid-range machines has been compared against other brands that are asking over $6,000 a piece when we are charging under $3,000. In most cases our Titanium USA series come with a heavier weight stack, better quality framing, metal instead of plastic or nylon pulleys and are smoother and be easier or your clients to use. There is a lot of slick marketing around regarding single station machines but the only way to really get the facts is to compare them for yourself.
If you are the type of business owner or club manager who wants premium quality gear but doesn’t want to be ripped off and wants high end gear that will handle years of heavy use then you will love our single station machines.
Which brand is best?
There are 6 key pieces of pin loaded gym equipment every gym should have:
1. Chest Press
2. Lat Pull Down
3. Seated Row or Cable Row
4. Pec Fly with Rear Delt
5. Horizontal (prone) Leg Curl
6. Leg Press
This also depends on whether you are also providing a lot of free weight style benches and plate loaded machines and of course the model and style of facility you are operating. Our purpose is to help you build a strong and successful business, so we will recommend only what you really need to provide your clients with high quality and safe equipment that will more than impress even your most critical clients.
What size weight stacks is best?
We recommend you purchase pin loaded gym machines with at least 80kg weight stacks but in most cases our clients prefer to upgrade to 120kg or 130 kg stacks, especially for Chest Press, Leg Pres and Lat Pull Down, however other machines such as Abductor, Adductor or Ab Crunch machines don’t require really heavy weight stacks as users won’t max out the stacks.
Finance, Lease or Rent?
We have a number of finance, lease or rental options and these can be tailored to your specific requirements depending on your financial position and requirements.
We will work with you to ensure you get the best deal possible. Finance is a great option to free up available cash on other things such as promotion and marketing expand and grow your business or to upgrade other parts of your facility.
