Easy installation / removing = Portable
If you buy a home gym machine, you must be sure that the assembly will not be a piece of cake. And, once you put it together, you will hardly take it somewhere else.
Setting up this equipment is very easy. You do not need to use bolts or screws. You just put it on the door frame, and you are ready to exercise. This way you can take it with you, for example, if you travel.
The door dip bar and pull up station are individual parts. (But, you need the pull-up section for the dip stand.)
Good Price / Value Ratio + Free Extras
On the official website, the price is just $59.95. For that price, you can hardly find other home workout equipment that provides so many opportunities to exercise.
Plus, with the package, you will get the Shamrock Triple Gym workout chart and 3 DVDs that lead you how to use this home gym efficiently.
The weight capacity is acceptable
While the manufacturer claims that the maximum weight capacity is 300 lbs, the customers do not think so. People over 200 pounds feel the equipment wobbles, and few of them complain about bending parts. Hence, it more suitable people under 200 lbs.
It damages the frame a little
In 2017 the manufacturer added extra thick foam pads to bars which touch the frame of the door for better protection. But, still, some users complain about scratches. A simple solution if you put a piece of clothes or foam under the pads for extra protection.
It wobbles a bit
Well, it is impossible to create multifunction equipment that can be used with the door frame to be rock solid. The chin-up section is somewhat stable, but the dip bars wobble a bit, particularly under heavy people. But the wobbling not so annoying that it spoils the workout.
Are the suspension straps adjustable?
How does the dip station work?
After fixing the doorway bar, you need to place the dip station on it with hooks. The dip station comes with a vertical bar that stands against the frame for stabilization.
How heavy is the package?
About 20 lbs.
Verdict / Is it for you?
Because of the numerous Shamrock triple gym exercises, easy installation, space saving feature and affordable price, it is a great price/value ratio equipment. The workout experience is also good. If you have just a little space to train at home, or you are on a budget, and you prefer bodyweight training, it is a good buy for you.
