Iron Gym Review
As you might not know about me. I love to stay active and try to keep in shape. I have had pullup bars in the past and have been ‘somewhat’ satisfied with them. While I was watching TV awhile ago I saw the ad for the “Iron Gym”. It looked really appealing to me for the fact that it didn’t seem that expensive considering all that it claimed to do. Instead of me rushing for my check card I decided to wait. 🙂 A few days after that commercial I was walking around Target and happen to see one there. It was a really good price of only $30, so I had to buy it and try it.
I got it home, and almost immediately began trying to put it together. Which by the way wasn’t difficult. I read all the directions “blah, blah, blah” and put it on my door frame like it showed and put the metal clip up there. At first when I went to pull myself up there I was skeptical that it would fall. I don’t know why, but I just felt like there was a chance. So the first pullup I did was nice and slow too make sure it was completely secure. Which it turned out it was. It actually is very secure. I’ve tried all sorts of different pullups on there and the bar doesn’t even budge. All you need to make sure is that you have a nice secure door frame to place the Iron Gym on to.
I’ve had the Iron Gym for over a week and a half now and it’s been working great. For $30 bucks or so, I couldn’t ask for a better piece of workout equipment. I love it. They do however advertise that it’s good for “Tricep Dips, Pullups, Pushups, Situps”.
Everything pretty much works great except for the Tricep Dips. They are not very useful considering you aren’t very elevated from the ground. I assume that if you elevate your feet it would help a little bit.
I would highly recommend anyone that want’s to keep in shape and likes doing pullups try out the Iron Gym.
