This is a simple but versatile machine that is sturdy and easy to assemble. It’s a good choice for people who want to be able to do some of the best fundamental exercises for building upper body and core strength. Although the list price is $249.99, it is currently being sold on Amazon for $130. This exercise machine weighs just over 90 pounds.


Review Weider Power Tower - What You Need to Know For Home GymThe Weider Power Tower is very a ver stable piece of equipment as you would expect with the material that it’s made from, steel. It is said that it holds up to over six feet tall and 300 lbs in weight and even though this may be more than enough for many, you should take precautions in the future.

The support that comes with the Weider Power Tower is very thick with the arm pads and the back padding that it comes with. This makes a huge difference against other similar working out equipments as you want to be as comfortable as possible when performing your exercises.

I’ve used other towers that are super uncomfortable specially when performing knee raises as i end up with marks and even blisters on my hands and arms as the padding isn’t ideal.

This machine is ideal for people who want to do relatively short but intense workouts. You can focus on a few powerful exercises and, if you work out consistently, get good results over time.


Like any product, the Weider Power Tower is not perfect and not ideal for everyone. One drawback is that, although the machine is compact considering how many exercises you can do on it, it does take up quite a bit of space. If you live in a studio apartment or a small cabin, the machine will probably take up most of your living space. When assembled, its dimensions are 41” length x 57” width x 84” height. Since the height is close to seven feet, you couldn’t use it in a basement or a room with low ceilings. So it’s most suitable for people who have a fairly large room to store it in.

Although the Weider Power Tower is not difficult to assemble, some people really dislike having to spend any time at all assembling products. You should be able to put this machine together in around two hours at most. This is about average, as most exercise machines do not arrive at your home fully assembled. However, some people may consider the assembly time a disadvantage.

Finally, although the machine is sturdy and can handle quite a bit of weight, the manufacturer doesn’t recommend it for people weighing more than 300 pounds.

Customer Reviews

As a result of the ratings being all over the board on this one, the average rating comes in 4 out of 5 stars. Ratings are very positive and comment that the bar is strong and sturdy.

There were no reviews when I bought this and I am 6'3" 210 lbs so I was worried that this tower was going to not be stable enough. But to my surprise, this tower is built like a tank. Very sturdy and heavy. The tower is about 7'6" tall. I can do pull ups and dips without issue (well I still have an issue in doing them, but the tower has no issue holding my weight). The tower arrives in pieces in one box. 

The box is very heavy and you might need help lifting it. Follow the instructions and DO NOT tighten the bolts until it is fully assembled. You might also need some help in getting it assembled. Four hands would be better than two. I did it alone and wished I had help a few times. Make sure it is level before tightening everything and you will be ready to go. My only complaint is that my hands we black after putting it together. I guess it is from the powder coating. I have not noticed any paint coming off while using it, but all of the places you put your hands to do exercises have rubber grips. Overall I am very pleased with this tower and would recommend it to anyone looking for this type of equipment. It will also make a great clothes hanger if you stop using it :) - Jaydog said

Robotguy reviewer says: When I first started looking into power towers, my main concern was how much flex these "budget" towers would have. I finally took a risk on this power tower and at 6'5/ about 215lbs, so far I really love this thing.

My Verdict

At the end of the day without a doubt I would recommend the Weider Power Tower over many other towers. One of the only concerns anyone should have with this product is the actual height of it at 6”11 it can very uncomfortable for some taller people or the height of your roof that you are putting this equipment under. If these are not any concerns of yours then I would totally encourage you to get it.
