    You'll have to request it from them, I used to have a price list but it is rather old and I have no idea whre I put it.

    Thanks, taken down by the flu so haven't had a chance to follow up. Since I work out at home,I am looking for something a little more confidence inspiring than my Trojan power cage when squatting in the 5's and their stuff looks good.
    I didn't realize there were other South African's on the board, are there any others ? Which neck of the woods you from ? I'm from Crazy Monkey land, I live on the edge ..... of Benoni !

    EDIT: Never mind, the search engine is my friend. You still down in PE ? That's my home town !! Moved up to the reef in 88 when my old man got a promotion to HQ.

    Hey Smee

    Question I have asked before but did not seem to get much response.

    Well, I am still in PE, but not for long looking forward to emigrating soon to the All blacks land!

    Hey, funny, I also bought myself a power cage, the only thing I don't like about it is that the stoppers (if you can call them that) are just shorter that the bar, which does not pay to use on your own as a real cage! Know what I mean?

    Cardiogenesis will do customized stuff if asked as well, but there is a lot to choose from, the only thing I found is that their biggest inclination is gym chains and the like, and therefore their prices are a little on the up side...but hey...looks like th real McCoy to me!

    Man...I have been managing OK with teh squats, this cycle I am aiming at 130 Kg. (for 5's) that will be my best lift, I am only 70Kg, I guess I won't be too unhappy once I can do double my bodyweight!

    But...get a good partner mate, I know...I know...people I have talked to also think they know it all but some guys have gripped the HST idea, I know it is good stuff!

    Anyway time to go back to work...mooi bly (he, he, he) my spelling is not the best

    Power Rack $299
    Optional Lat attachment with low pulley $239
    Flat, incline, decline bench with leg extension and preacher curl attachments $477
    And I got the cable cross over on Ebay for $150 plus $50 S&H ($200) .
    If you got it new it would be $500
    There was no shipping charge for any of the Body Solid equipment from the Fitness Factory.
    And what I really like about it, it has a lifetime grantee.
    I broke the seat pin on my bench and they shipped me one the very next day.
    I already had 600lb’+ - of plates and assorted bars I had accumulated over the years along with the weight racks.
    Not all the equipment is showed in the pic.
    I also have the leg press/hack machine $1000.
    All I want next is the seated row machine $350. I hate to do standing rows.
    I got this equipment by selling my silly Bowflex XLT and a bunch of other near useless equipment I had purchased thru the years. .
    So! Let me add this all up …………
    299
    239
    477
    200
    1000
    Total=$2215

    Thanks
    Sonny

    I like the cage, unfortunately here in south africa, I could not get a proper cage, what I got is called a cage but does not do the same job. It was cheap I must say, (R 2500.00 = +/- 385 U$D) but it is not quite the same.

    Your equipment came to just over 1000 U$D which is not bad.

    I make do with mine, but certainly lacks some of the stuff you got, I particularly like the cable cross over, doubt whether one could get away with shipping chrgaes this far though!

    See below the power cage by Trojan (some chinese manufacturer - rather underground as I struggled a bit to get a replacement cable initially), I have about 300 odd kilos of weights so yep I make do.
