Weider Club 2980 Weight System



The bow cross gym Weider used to make is no longer available and has been replaced with the new Weider Club 2980 Weight System. We liked the bow cross home gym and were eager to check out the new system to see how it measured up. Weíre pleased to say we like it as much as, if not better, than the old model.

The new system is more versatile than the bow cross gym was because the pulleys allow for a greater range of motion. This allows you to get a more complete workout, including those hard to reach places.

Best Rated Home Gym

The thing we like best about the Weider 2980 Weight System is its versatility. We love that you can do 55 different exercises and we also love how easy it is to move from one exercise to another. With so much variety, you wonít get bored and youíre sure to get a thorough workout.   

As mentioned earlier, this is a great gym for beginners as well as more experienced trainers, which we also think is important.  If youíre just starting a fitness routine, you donít want to spend a lot of money on a piece of equipment that youíll soon outgrow.  If you have family members or housemates that also want to work out, itís nice to have equipment that can be used by those with varying levels of fitness. 

Finally, we love the detailed exercise chart that comes with this system. Not only does it provide easy-to-follow instructions, it shows you which exercises work which muscle groups, which is really important if you want to target specific areas of your body.
