With a unique leverage system, the Inspire Fitness BL1 Gym offers both a smooth and a quiet workout. The machine has a total length of 137cm (this can extend to 157cm at resistance position 15) and a width of 64cm on the ground (the lat bar gives it a total width of 107cm).
The height is 204cm, which once again increases at resistance position to 220cm. The Inspire BL1 has a total weight of 92 kilograms and is designed for users of up to 136kg or 21 stone. You get a lifetime warranty on the frame and parts, a 2-year warranty on the cables and a 1-year labour warranty.
Here’s a list of all the exercises that can be enjoyed on this home gym. Each one is detailed on the BL1 chart that accompanies the product and details how you set up for each:
This home gym has a unique leverage system which utilises the body weight of the user. Unlike other similar home gyms, there are no guide rods or weight plates in place.
The leverage system has 15 positions, with each of the positions contributing 10% of resistance using the users body weight. For example, a user of 150lbs would create 15lbs in resistance at position 1. Move to position 2 and this doubles to 30 lbs, and so on. At the maximum 15th level, the total resistance will be one and a half times your body weight. The resistance levels at the lower end are in easy reach of the seat, so you won’t need to stand up and make any adjustments.
The frame of this home gym is made up heavy duty 2 x 4-inch Oval 11 Gauge Tubular Steel. The pulleys are made from fiberglass reinforced nylon and the cables have a 2000lb tensile strength. Much of the pressure of the machine is at the pivot points. 1.5-inch precision steel bearings take the pressure at the bench press. Oil impregnated brass brushings take the pressure elsewhere, ensuring a smooth and fluid motion when you use the gym. Also included are the 48-inch lateral steel bar and the 18-inch revolving curl bar.
Reviews of this Inspire Fitness made home gym are positive. One enthused user claimed that a gym membership was no longer needed after purchasing the equipment. The build of this fitness equipment was complimented by multiple users, with one commentor stating ‘It is well constructed and is a very intelligent design’. Assembly of the machine is said to be straightforward, with around two hours as a suggested time frame. The range of exercises are said to be excellent, enabling a complete workout. Value for money is a quote that comes up more than once.
This mid-price home gym setup is ideal for all users who want to enjoy an all-round fitness program. As you can see from the range of exercises listed above, you get an all-body workout.
The innovative design with the resistance based on your own body weight is an interesting concept. This already gives you the feel that this machine is customised for you. Smooth, solid, and quiet, it’s an ideal gym for use in the home.
