Want a multi-functional home gym, but don’t want to break the bank to get it? The MWM-990 Home Gym by Marcy is designed just for that purpose. This multi-purpose home gym machine has surprising features that you wouldn’t expect to find at this low of a price point. The chest press arms act independently, so that you can train one arm at a time to encourage equal strength development in each arm or to rehab an injury. You can also use both pressing arms at the same time to focus on an equal path of motion throughout the exercise while using heavier weight supplied by the built in 150 lb. selectorized weight stack. The weight stack is solid steel – not sand filled plastic plates that can crack and spill out if dropped after a heavy workout. Marcy even provides an adjustable preacher curl attachment on this home gym to give you a support for concentrated bicep and tricep development training. Vinyl covered roller pads, an exercise instructional chart and a special EZ curl style lat bar are even more features that make this a special home gym. Marcy brings over 50 years of fitness equipment industry experience to your home gym.
