Building a home gym was always a dream of mine. During the pandemic, that became a reality. I’ve always had home gym equipment (of lower quality) and always made it work. From cheap bars from the sporting goods store to doorway pull-up bars. All of that worked for many years, but this was an opportunity to build something of the highest quality that would last a lifetime. I came across The Strength Co. and was initially impressed with their plates and the fact that their products are made in the USA-which to me is a big deal. I knew I needed a power rack but had one big issue: short ceilings and no other company offered a custom cut shorter rack. I spoke to Grant and he custom cut a rack for me so that it would sit at 75” tall. I bought 500 pounds of weight plates, a plate tree, custom cut rack and a barbell. All my stuff came and Grant even threw in a free flat bench. I’ve had my home gym for about 6 months now and couldn’t be more thrilled. No more waiting in line for equipment, no more smelling people (other than myself), no more driving to the gym, no more sub par equipment and no more lack of equipment that I prefer. Everything I have is mine and mine alone. All equipment custom made and picked out for only me. I had an old boxing coach who used to say: “there’s something very comforting about putting your hand in a sweaty boxing glove and knowing that the sweat is yours!” That statement holds true for gym equipment as well. Big thanks to Grant and everyone at The Strength Co. for making this dream of mine happen, and if you’re someone on the fence about purchasing from these guys, don’t hesitate, do it now!
What a promotion!
After a year and a half lifting with the”Captain “ it was time to move up the chain of command to the “General”. Oh. My. Word. It is a beautiful thing. I assembled it my self in a couple hours, and immediately knew it would be a game changer. Solid, sturdy and every hole machined perfectly so bolts slid in and tightened up like they should. Made in the too! Extremely happy to have the General as my lifting partner now!
It was a very professional and efficient experience.
Totally worth the upgrade from the cheap stuff
I purchased "The General" to upgrade from a amazon-special rack I no longer trusted. Despite UPS's best efforts to destroy it, it showed up unscathed just thee days after I ordered it. TSC got me a rack faster than amazon can ship a book. The rack is a confidence inspiring tank. It's the opposite of cheap, it's an investment in a safe, quality home setup. I only regret not upgrading sooner.
I bought "The General" rack a few months ago and train on it regularly. The construction is solid and reliable. I am extremely pleased with it and also own the plates, etc from The Strength Co. TSC always puts a priority on craftsmanship and customer service. Buy this rack and you will not regret it.
