The Powerline PFT100 Functional Trainer by Body-Solid is a budget-friendly home unit designed to offer the same exercise variety and flexibility as the cable machines you find at your local gym. This trainer comes pretty packed with dual weight stacks, fully adjustable pulleys, and a pull-up bar.
The PFT100 has a durable steel frame. It consists of 2 independent towers that connect through the structure in the rear and a straight pull up bar in the front. Each tower has its own 160 lb weight stack with its pulley. You can do exercises using only one pulley (tricep extensions) as well as exercises using both at the same time (cable crossovers).
Keep in mind that the pulleys give you a mechanical advantage- meaning that 160 lb doesn’t feel like 160 lb when lifted on the pulley system. It’s actually at a 2:1 ratio, so 160 lb on this system is only 80 lb of resistance. This is common for functional trainers.
Each pulley on the PFT100 is fully adjustable vertically, giving you the option to choose any 1 of 20 different starting positions (the positions are spaced out 3.2″ from each other). With this many positions to choose from, you shouldn’t have any problems performing any exercise comfortably.
