Body Vision PT600 Power Tower
The Body Vision PT600 power tower is ideal for those of you with limited space–which was my situation before upgrading to the recommended model below.
If you need to place your power tower in a corner, you’ll need a unit where the dip station and pullup bar are facing the same way! Most units on the market put the pullup bar facing the back, mostly for stability. This one is angled back so that the front facing pullup bar does not cause rocking.
This does weigh 71.6 pounds, so it’s not quite as easy to move as other models–but with the same side orientation you shouldn’t have to.
When I was using mine, I added some weight on the back using plates and a kettlebell just to make sure it stayed stable. I didn’t do that because of instability, it was more my own OCD. 🙂
This unit does not provide the bar across the bottom to support situps and crunches. However, I personally prefer L-Sits to sit ups or crunches, and in fact, I caution against the use of sit ups and crunches because of risks to the back.
So, to me, with any space limitation, this unit is ideal! It supports the following exercises:
– Leg lifts and leg raises
– Chins and pull-ups
– Hanging Knee Raises
The unit measures a compact 42 x 43 x 85.
