Our Rating

Rating: 86.1/100. The Yowza GravityGym ($1299) is a sleek alternative to traditional home gyms that use weight stacks. It lets you use a specific percentage of your own bodyweight — choose from 20 to 90 percent — as your challenge in head-to-toe training. For instance, with the GravityGym you can accomplish chin-ups by lifting just half of your bodyweight instead of 100%! A moving platform helps lighten the load, letting you complete more repetitions of exercises than you ever thought possible.

The GravityGym supports a wide range of exercises for the upper body, lower body and core. Examples include pull-ups, shoulder pulldowns, chest presses, squats, and a standing one-leg press. Yowza’s website lists 17 of the many possibilities.

Proper form is a big advantage of using the Yowza GravityGym. With traditional weightlifting and resistance training, less precision is allowed for resistance… and form can easily suffer when the challenge is too great. In contrast the GravityGym lets you get a very precise challenge. You can therefore have better focus on using proper form, which helps you avoid long-term injury and get the best benefits of training.

Pros:

  • Supports more than 17 exercises
  • Adjusts between 20 and 90 percent of body weight
  • Powder-coated steel frame
  • Three-year warranty on parts and electronics
  • 330-pound user weight capacity
  • Platform self-locks for safety after use

Cons:

  • Can only be used by one person at a time
  • Can’t provide more than 90 percent of bodyweight as resistance

Introduction

Yowza describes their GravityGym as an “anti-gravity muscle trainer” that lets you accomplish more repetitions than usual and thus build strength more quickly. It supports weightlifting, cable resistance training and gymnastic exercises. From 20 to 90 percent of your body weight can be used in a challenge. To avoid applying your full bodyweight as resistance, the GravityGym has a platform that moves with nitrogen-filled cylinders. This unit has a $1299 sale price. Full price is $2199.

Home Gym Workouts

The Yowza GravityGym supports a wide variety of exercises with its pulleys and multiple handgrips. The list below gives examples or the upper body, lower body and core. More exercises are listed on the Yowza Fitness website, and even more exercise possibilities will likely come to mind as you train.

– Narrow Shoulder Pulldowns
– Wide Shoulder Pulldowns
– Triangle Tricep Extension
-Pullup
-Chinup
-Chest Press
– Standing Ab Crunch
– Squat
– Twist Squat
– Standing One Legged Press

For each exercise the resistance used can be from 20 to 90 percent of your own bodyweight. Altering the workout resistance is easy with the GravityGym’s power dial. Starting at a low percentage gives you the opportunity to develop perfect form and accomplish many repetitions, two goals that can be more difficult with traditional home gyms.

Yowza GravityGym Features

Pulleys and other foam grips for the GravityGym are centered around the Gravity Platform. When you’re positioned on this non-slip deck, nitrogen-filled cylinders help control the percentage of your bodyweight that’s applied in exercise.

The GravityGym’s frame is commercial-grade steel with powder coating. The whole machine weighs 210 pounds, so it’s sturdy but more manageable than a typical home gym. It takes up just 4 feet x 4 feet of floor space.

To help keep children and pets safe, this fitness machine can be locked with a lever.

Warranty & Guarantee

The Yowza GravityGym home gym carries a seven-year frame warranty and a three-year parts and electronics warranty. Servicing is free if needed during the first year, and labor is in-home.

Conclusion

The Yowza GravityGym is a user-friendly alternative to the traditional weight stack home gym. It lets people accomplish exercises and repetitions like never before, so results come especially quickly. A potential disadvantage is that the resistance maxes out at 90 percent of your body weight; some shoppers would like an even greater challenge.

Unsure? Compare the Yowza GravityGym to other home gyms under $1500.
