Best Home Multi Gyms - Our Top Picks

1. York Perform Multi Gym - Best Multi Gym Under £1000

York PerForm Multi Gym
Weight Stack
1 x 100kg
141cm (L) x 115cm (W) x 196cm (H)


York Fitness is a renowned name in strength equipment, and their York Perform Multi Gym is their best selling multi gym.

One of its most attractive features is the 100kg weight stack which is one of the heaviest available for single-station multi gyms.

A nice feature on this machine is that the chest press and flies function independently. This is an advantage for those keen on super-setting these exercises.

It's equipped with both a high pulley, great for lat pulldowns, and a low pulley suited for seated rows. However, the absence of a footplate on the low pulley is a minor setback, as it would provide added support during rows.

The gym boasts a comfortable leg developer for extensions and curls, targeting both quads and hamstrings.

But one limitation is the lack of shoulder exercise options, though it's worth noting that few single-station multi gyms offer exercises such as shoulder press built in.


  • York Fitness is a respected and renowned brand in the strength equipment market.
  • Heavy 100kg weight stack, making it one of the heaviest for single-station multi gyms.
  • Good value for money.


  • Lacks a footplate on the low pulley, which could offer more support during seated rows.
  • Limited shoulder exercise options, although this is a common drawback among many single-station multi gyms.


2. Marcy MD-9010G Home Gym

Marcy MD-9010G
Weight Stack
Requires Olympic Weight Plates
254cm (L) x 200cm (W) x 215cm (H)


The Marcy MD-9010G Home Gym seamlessly melds the attributes of a typical multi gym with those of smith machine/ power rack. But as you can see, it does require more space than a conventional home multi gym.

It comes with a pec dec, low pulley, and high pulley, which means it can perform almost all the same exercises.

However, due to the absence of an integrated weight stack, you will need to purchase some Olympic weight plates.

You also get a flat/ incline/ decline bench and attachable preacher curl/  leg developer which expands the number of exercises you can perform and isolate certain muscle groups.

But the biggest difference between this unit and the ones we have seen so far is the built-in smith machine and squat rack combination. This allows you to perform large free-weight compound movements like squats, bench press, and shoulder press.

While we are big fans of all in one trainers, there are trade-offs. They do tend to require more space, both for installation and operation. In addition, their price tag is a little steeper.

But, they undoubtedly bring unmatched exercise diversity and cater to long-term strength goals.

3. Marcy MWM-4965 - Best Multi Gym Under £500


Marcy MWM-4965
Weight Stack
186cm (L) x 107cm (W) x 198cm (H)


The Marcy MWM-4965 stands out as an ideal pick for those getting started in strength training.

Priced under £500, this multi gym offers excellent value without compromising on brand reliability, given Marcy's longstanding reputation.

The machine boasts an upper, middle, and lower cable pulley system.

Additionally, the chest press can be unlocked and used for chest flies.

However, there are a couple of downsides to be aware of. The pulley length is relatively short, which can restrict the range of motion for taller individuals, particularly for functional movements that extend away from the unit.

The leg extension, while providing good amount of resistance, also has a restricted range of motion. Although this is a common issue in multi gyms within this budget.

For beginners, the exercise chart helps give you ideas for exercises you can perform to make sure you get the most out of the machine.

Overall, the Marcy MWM-4965 is a good all-rounder, perfect for beginners aiming to engage all major muscle groups. 


  • Ideal for beginners in strength training.
  • Priced under £500, offering great value for money.
  • Trusted brand with Marcy's longstanding reputation for reliability.
  • Features an upper, middle, and lower cable pulley system.
  • Exercise chart provides guidance on various exercises, ensuring optimal machine use.


  • Pulley length is on the shorter side, potentially limiting the range of motion, especially for taller users.
  • While the leg extension provides decent resistance, its range of motion is limited. This is, however, a common issue with budget multi gyms.

4. Inspire Fitness M5

Inspire Fitness  M5
Weight Stack
2 x 95kg
250cm (L) x 220cm (W) x 213cm (H)


When budget isn’t a restraint, the Inspire Fitness M5 takes the crown as our choice for Best Home Multi Gym.

Its quality is night and day better than all the other pulley multi gyms in our list.

Inspire Fitness are well known for its high-quality equipment and the M5 is no different and wouldn’t look out of place in a commercial gym and the overall feel of the machine is better than other models. 

The meticulous attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the M5. Even the way the adjustable seat back pads can be moved independently of each other to target certain muscles adds to the machines versatility.

Plus, the ingeniously designed chest press doubles as both a shoulder press and a machine row — a feature unique to the M5 among our reviewed pulley-style gyms.

Enhanced adjustability optimises your range of motion, amplifying rep efficiency.

The leg developer isn't limited to just leg extensions and can be unfolded to also offer seated leg curls.

The M5 also comes with a second station that has a dedicated lat pulldown station, complete with knee support that converts into a preacher curl pad or hyperextension bench, targeting glutes, hamstrings, and the lower back.

There is also an extra low pulley, designed for extended reach which allows for exercises like lateral raises. As an extra bonus they even included a calf raise block to really target every muscle group.

Should you desire more, there's an optional leg press attachment that mirrors authentic leg presses.

While the M5's price tag may raise eyebrows, its unparalleled quality makes it a justifiable investment, complemented by great after-sales support from Inspire Fitness. 


  • High-quality commercial design
  • Clever design offers extra versatility
  • Multi-functional chest press which can also be used for should press and machine rows.
  • Optional leg press attachment
  • Exceptional after-sales support from Inspire Fitness


  • High price tag


5. DKN Studio 7400

DKN Studio 7400
Weight Stack
165cm (L) x 107cm (W) x 210cm (H)


The DKN Studio 7400 closely rivals the Marcy model in terms of value, both being similarly priced.

Its weight stack is heftier at 80kg, catering to those looking to improve their strength.

While it lacks a middle pulley, the inclusion of a preacher curl pad is a bonus for those looking to target and isolate their biceps.

An advantage over its Marcy counterpart is the top pulley's design. Thanks to its upward-bent bar which makes the machine 12cm taller, users get a marginally improved range of motion, though pulling cables far from the machine remains a limitation.

On the downside, the assembly process can test your patience as the instructions aren't very clear. Yet, with perseverance, setting it up is achievable.

All in all, the DKN Studio 7400 is a worthy consideration.


  • Competitively priced.
  • Features a heavier 80kg weight stack.
  • Comes with a preacher curl pad


  • Lacks a middle pulley.
  • Despite the improved pulley design, it's still restrictive in pulling cables far from the machine.
  • Assembly can be challenging and time-consuming as the instructions provided aren't particularly clear.


6. V-Fit STG09/3 Herculean Modular Python Gym

V-Fit STG09/3
Weight Stack
188cm (L) x 131cm (W) x 214cm (H)


The V-Fit STG09/3 Herculean Modular Python Gym is a wallet-friendly choice, offering the standard multi gym features like chest press/ flies, high and low pulleys, and a leg developer.

But it comes with the added bonus of a Vertical Knee Raise (VKR) station on its side with dip handles and an aerobic stepper.

While the stepper may come off as a mere space-filler, the VKR and dip handles provide a valuable addition, enabling enhanced workouts for abs and arms beyond the capabilities of a regular multi gym in the same price range.

Although its weight stack is advertised at 100kg, it feels slightly lighter; nevertheless, it offers good resistance.

On a side note, it is important that you take your time assembling the machine to make sure it is set up correctly. If not, the equipment may feel somewhat unstable during workouts.


  • Budget-friendly choice
  • Vertical Knee Raise (VKR) and dip handles


  • Aerobic stepper feels more like a space-filler rather than a functional addition.
  • Weight stack might feel lighter than the advertised 100kg.


7. Fit4Home Multi Home Gym


Fit4home multi gym
Weight Stack
170cm (L) x 105cm (W) x 203cm (H)


Last but not least, we have another budget-friendly option from Fit4Home which costs about £400 at the time of writing this.

Equipped with everything you would expect, it comess with a lat pulldown, pec dec/ chest press, preacher pad, leg developer, low pulley and has a respectable 68kg weight stack.

One possible downside to be aware of, Fit4Home have tried to keep the machine footprint as compact as possible which can make it feel a little cramped if you have a large frame.

Nonetheless, the resistance is enough if you are just getting started and want to add some extra resistance to your training routine. But if you are planning on seeing how strong you can get, you might need to get a machine with a bit more resistance.

When being used it feels stable as long as it is assembled correctly. We did see a few comments that it felt like it moved on exercises like the lat pulldown.

But chances are this was caused but it not being assembled correctly. It is important to check the bolts after the machine has been used a few times as it will settle slightly.

When it comes to multi gyms in this price range, they are all very similar and it often comes down to what deal you can get on the day you are looking to buy one.


  • Affordable
  • Compact
  • 68kg weight stack


  • Compact design might make it too small for users with a big frame.
  • Resistance may not be enough if you are strength training.


What To Take Into Consideration

Choosing the ideal multi gym for your needs requires careful consideration of several factors.


Weight Stack Capacity

Firstly, assess the Weight Stack Capacity. Ensure it supports your current fitness level and offers room for growth.


Type of Multi Gym

Next, consider the Type of Multi Gym. Do you prefer a Pulley Multi Gym that often comes self-contained, a Leverage Multi Gym that simulates free weight exercises, or an All-in-One Trainer which combines various machines into one unit?

Space Requirements

Space Requirements are crucial. Measure your available space to ensure not only that the multi gym fits but also that you can comfortably perform exercises.


Does it Require Extras?

Lastly, think about Extras.

While pulley multi gyms tend to have everything you need, other types might require extras such as additional weight plates for leverage gyms and all in one trainers.

Make sure you're ready for any added investments. Weighing these factors will guide you to a multi gym tailored to your needs.



When budgeting for strength equipment, we recommend avoiding the cheapest options. They often have poorer quality parts, wear out quickly, and lack good warranties.

If you budget can stretch for an upgraded unit, investing a bit more now can save future headaches.
