The Body Solid EXM1500S begins with a Lat Pulldown system utilizing a High-Pulley Station. Hold-down pads keep your body in place allowing you to lift your body weight and more. An added bonus is this type of exercise also strengthens back muscles.

The Mid-Pulley Station concentrates on strength training for those problem abdominal areas. The specific design of the EXM1500S firms and flattens your entire abdominal area.

Body Solid’s EXM1500S also includes the Lower-Pulley Station which again develops strong back muscles. The swivel feature of the station gives more accurate results for curls, rows and shrugs.
