Tuff Stuff Pro AXT 5 and Standard AXT 5 Gym Editions
There are two variations of the tuff stuff axt 5 home based weight lifting station:
The first version of the Tuff Stuff AXT model is the standard edition, which is slightly more affordable than the deluxe edition. The standard version costs $3999 to order through tuff stuff's company website, but both home based weight lifting stations will require assembly once you receive the parts before they can be used for lifting exercises. The Deluxe edition costs about $500 more than the standard edition of the Tuff Stuff AXT series.
The major difference between the standard and deluxe editions is that the latter can accept a higher total weight stack, while the standard version is limited to one full 200 lb stack of plates. This won't be an issue if you don't generally bench or leg press more than 200lbs, but it can be a hassle for those home athletes serious about adding major strength gains because it will put a cap on how much you can advance. In terms of appearance and features, the two tuff stuff gyms are quite similar besides this point of difference.
Here's a shot of a tuff stuff 5 odyssey gym for sale on buysellclassifieds.com. You can find these home gyms popping up on craigslist as well. Although going through an individual who no longer has use for their home based weight bench is a great way to secure deep discounts on these otherwise expensive pieces of equipment, you'll have to contend with arranging freight with the seller. These home gyms themselves weight about 500lbs flat!
Although you can expect to drop several thousands of dollars on these specialized basement weight benches, you can look at it in terms of the money you'd save on a fancy gym membership, especially when you factor in the gas you'd have to spend to get to and from the gym each day. A decent gym can easily charge you $150-200 per month, meaning you'd only need to attend a local gym for 10 months in order to rack up the same price of home gym ownership! This is one of the most common reasons that athletes serious about bulking up at home search local classifieds for tuff stuff 5 axt gyms for sale.
