Update: Adding a couple of smart alternatives to this page, as the JTX model has gone ‘currently unavailable’. As always I’ll add this model to my watch list and update if needed.
Closest in price and spec:
Summary: This compact multi gym from JTX Fitness solves a common issue – space. Many of us would like a solid and versatile weight training setup at home. Not all of us can easily dedicate half a room (or a garage) for this. When it comes to looks, the JTX Compact is a stunner, when you see the list of exercises, the integrated weight stack and the positive feedback from buyers, you’d be crazy to exclude this from your ‘wanted’ list. You will find the full picture gallery and spec on the dedicated amazon.co.uk product page – check it now!
This gym arrives flat packed, and will be delivered to the room of your choice by a 2-man delivery team. Assembly is required, though does not appear to have been difficult compared to other types of gym equipment. You get a full 2-year home servicing and repair warranty, plus a 28 day no questions asked money back guarantee.
The secret to not taking up too much space is that the setup is narrow. There is a pulley system (which uses aircraft cables) which works with the 68kg solid vinyl weight stack. You can adjust this using pins in 10 pound steps (4.5 kg). All the attachments you need for pull-downs and so on come included.
You’ll find a lot of exercises are possible from this compact unit. The press arms are independent, chest press and pec dec are included – plus preacher pad and leg press. This is before we even get to the shoulders… rather than list everything here, I’ll just say this is an impressive spec for a smaller unit – and leave those interested to see the full spec on the main amazon product page.
This is a reasonably new gym, so there has not been too much time to collect feedback from buyers. What there has been to date has been 100% positive.
The build quality came in for praise, with smooth and even resistance noted. One buyer put this gym together on their own, another with assistance.
One thing that comes over in the buyer comments for the JTX compact gym is that the seller (that’ll be JTX fitness) are great to deal with. This sentiment is echoed in the comments for many of their other products – great to see a company that goes above and beyond when it comes to service!
This home multi-gym fills a niche, the size and shape mean you can store it against a wall (pivoting out for use), which makes it suitable for a spare room without ‘taking over’.
What it comes down to is the exercises… and the spec is certainly impressive in this area. The 68kg weight stack will be suitable for most of us, and the versatility of the unit means you will not need additional equipment alongside.
In short, a compact multi gym with a great spec, from a company that really looks after their customers – what is not to like?
