I picked it up on craigs w/ 10 45 plates for $600 about 9 years ago. Certainly a good deal.
Even better sounding these days, the plates could go for $600. I see that machine new is $1900. I guess I'll stick to my old fashioned squats at that price....

Keep a lookout on Craigs. You never know what will pop up! I used to keep an app on android that you could put search terms in and it would alert you once something was listed.

That reminds me....I ought to put that back on! I missed a freemotion cable cross for 400$! (worth about $4000) So pissed I missed it. It was 15 miles from my home and woman just wanted it out of their basement. I was the second caller and the first people came over and got it.

I always like a deal!

the FreeMotion version is the best out there and I can pretty much do my whole upper body on it.

Never been a big 'filter' guy. But I snapped this pic and with a B&W filter, it reminded me of the old school pics from back in the day. I am a fan of the 70's and 80's bodybuilding. I spent much of my youth dreaming to try to look like that one day.

The craziest thing now is I look at those pics from that era and many of the guys I idolized were in their late 20's and 30's. Now here I am, a year an a half from 50. I might not have been the guy at the center of the pic, but I could be in the background and no one would say....wtf is THAT guy doing in there.

This is my 'old school' look. Gray hair to match!

Outstanding physique and gym!
Started my garage gym at age 12 in my parents house as a kid, and 44 years later at age 56, I still tweak it.
