Superior design, thousands of users, 30 years of improvement. Includes a Super Bench
There isn't a piece of weight training equipment that has as many features as the Ironmaster IM2000 with the same compact footprint. It's rock solid feel with silky-smooth movement. The list of exercises you can perform on it is huge - check out just some of them in the video at the bottom of the page, They make it the ultimate piece of gym equipment for any home gym or studio. The IM2000 represents 30 years of development and refinement. For a piece of gym equipment to last this long in the US market it has to be heavy duty, super-functional and multi-featured.
Ironmaster's lifting bar locks out forwards in a quicker and more natural movement than a traditional Smith machine. The sliding system is super smooth, with virtually no noise. The lockout points are only 1.7" apart so you never get stuck. The IM2000 also features secondary safety stops, and heavy duty springs act as additional back up for the lifting bar. Much more compact than a Smith Machine, the number of exercises you can do is much greater, because of the simple and elegant design. (The IM2000 doesn't need the complex counterbalance system that Smith Machines require)
The best Smith machines use linear ball bearings as a means of guiding the bar up and down the guide rods and under ideal conditions work well. But they can require (and acquire) grease, grit, dirt, maintenance, wear and noise. Others use bushings that have simple plastic sliding on metal. This causes fast wear and friction and the action feels terrible. Ironmaster's patented approach uses a special polymer material bushing that slides over specially coated slide rails of compatible materials.
The only maintenance it needs is occasional application of silicon spray on the nylon bushes on which the bar floats. There is none of the binding (the catching where one surface grabs another because of weight pressure and/or imperfect alignment) which frustrates users on many machines. Plate storage holders are by the lifting bar for convenience. And they carry lots of plates!
This video contains an optional calf raise block, and plates. Super Bench included, and the Ultimate Chin Up Bar.
