Customer Review 

Amazon has awarded this product with a strong 4 out 5 stars. It has received over 150 reviews, the majority of which speak volumes about the best aspects of this power rack. I highly recommend it.


This power rack has few drawbacks. However, it is worth mentioning that it can only support close to 300lbs of weight. Also, it is not foldable and can take up quite a bit of room.
