I don't believe REP fitness has released these "ISO Arms" yet for their PR5000 or PR4000 series racks yet. Good luck ordering a rack from them anytime soon. Nothing in stock and demand is incredibly high. Great equipment for the price even though it's made in China.

Im having the same problem regardless of the company. Havent been able to get a quote from anyone except elite fts, and thats after calling them twice. Never have I had to try so hard to get people to take my money

I feel your pain. We're experiencing the same frustrations. There is a huge demand for fitness equipment at the moment. I don't expect it to slow down anytime soon. IMO commercial gyms are done as a viable business model as we've known them:
That's why we've decided to put together a first class garage gym. No more reliance on someone else's facility. Slow downs in production and/or imports have caused huge delays getting new equipment to market. Patience is the only course I see at the moment. This shutdown has put a strain on every kind of market conceivable, both domestic and foreign. I expect there will be lots of commercial equipment available used in the next twelve months. Importing from China may also change dramatically in the near future. Keep a positive attitude and we will prosper.

Have you tried looking for used, like on Craig's List or one those buy/sell apps ( which I have no idea how to use.. lol). A couple of days ago, my son found over 400lb's of free weights. a new bench and a dip/pull up unit for free because the people were moving and didn't want to pay to have someone haul it off. I know a rack is harder to find, but it might be worth a try.

Same here. After going 2 months without training i swore to myself that i will never be at the mercy of anyone or anything in regards to my training. I went the last 10 years of consistent training....no time off. Ill be damned if a virus or anything else out of my control is gonna stop me again

While it hasn't happened yet officially yet some of the 24 hour fitness are doing it in the states are open.
Here the chain gym EOS (formerly Gold's) sent email to members says you down load the app and schedule your booking time online in hour blocks. Hasn't happened yet the governor here in Nevada will announce today if phase 2 which includes opening of Casinos will include gyms. So we'll see if f I build my own or hopefully return to normal!!!
