As you can see, the more expensive brands have significantly better warranty terms than the cheaper brands. That’s because providing good warranty costs money. Another reason is that more expensive brands create higher quality products which means offering a better warranty doesn’t actually cost them that much.

And finally, people just expect a better warranty on something that costs a lot of money. It provides peace of mind to spend a big chunk of change.


Best multi gym warranty

Which multi gym has the best warranty conditions? This is again the manufacturer warranty. You retailer could give you different terms. Sometimes it’s difficult to say what’s best because things are just balanced differently. Some brands give better terms on the frame while other give better terms on wear parts.

This list is a ranking of which models have the best overall and balanced warranty. Brands often have a similar warranty policy for more than one model. I’ve combined the models that have the same warranty conditions because it isn’t very useful to just fill up the list with different models of the same brand with the same warranty policy.


1.     Body Solid

First up: a list. They all have a shared first place because they have the exact same conditions.

  • Body Solid G1S
  • Body Solid G2B
  • Body Solid G3S
  • Body Solid G5S
  • Body-Solid G6BR

Here’s what Body Solid’s warranty looks like for these models:

  • Frame & Welds: Lifetime
  • Pulleys, Bushings, Bearings, Hardware, Plates, Guide Rods: Lifetime
  • Cables, Upholstery, Grips: Lifetime

Of course there are a few limitations. While this is the best warranty of any multi-station home gym out there, it’s not as unlimited as it looks like:

  • Only for residential (non-commercial) use
  • Only extends to the original owner. Not transferrable
  • Excludes paint and finish (cosmetics)
  • Has to be bought from body solid or a certified retailer

All in all, the limitations are very reasonable which is why this is the best multi gym warranty you can find.

2.     Body-Craft

Next up: Body-Craft. This brand has an average sized line-up of all-in-one home gyms but they are all pretty awesome:

All of them have the same warranty conditions. They might be worded slightly different for the old models and the new ones but they’re practically the same. Here’s what it comes down to;

  • BodyCraft guarantees to replace or repair any manufacturer defects.

That’s clearly not worded as strongly as the Body-Solid Warranty. That becomes clearer when we look at the limitations;

  • Residential use
  • Does not apply to normal wear and tear
  • Applies only to the original owner

What’s the difference with number one? The biggest difference is that the warranty doesn’t extend to normal wear and tear. That means:

  • Cables
  • Upholstery
  • Pads
  • Grips

Those are items that will wear out with normal use over time. It really depends on how often/heavy you use the machine. Those items are usually pretty easy and cheap to replace. However, number one covers even those items.

The other limitations are pretty similar to the number one.

That said, I personally prefer the Body-Craft machines. While both number one and two make great machines, Body-Craft has some awesome features for home gyms and are generally just built to last forever.  The loss of coverage for wear and tear parts is worth it for the extra features you get.


3.      Life Fitness G2/G4

Next up, we have one of the biggest names in the fitness industry: Life Fitness. They make a lot of equipment for commercial gyms but this is about home gyms. That’s why we’re specifically looking at the models for residential use. The commercial machines have different warranty conditions.

The models for home use are the G2 and G4. Here’s what the warranty for this machine looks like:

  • Frame, Welds, Pulleys and Parts: Lifetime
  • Upholstery, Pad, Cables and grips: 3 years

What are the limitations?

  • Lifetime – for so long as the Customer owns the Life Fitness product. So it only extends to the original owner.
  • Only includes parts and repairs. Owner is responsible for other costs like; A. labor charges for service, removal, repair or reinstallation of the Life Fitness product or any component part; B. shipping, delivery, handling and administrative charges for returning parts to Life Fitness; and C. all necessary or incidental costs related to installation of the replacement parts.

Why is it number three?

Because while the coverage for wear parts is better than for BodyCraft, it’s cancelled out by their policy on extra costs. The fact that you’re on the hook for labor, shipping and more if something goes wrong, rubs me the wrong way. If those costs only apply outside of warranty, that would be reasonable. However, that’s not what the terms and conditions say.

With that said, it’s still better than the other brands.


Related questions

How long should a multi-station home gym last? The frame and most other metal parts should last for decades. Pivot points, bearings, bushings, pulleys, etc. can last for 10 years if maintained properly. Cables, upholstery and grips are seen as wear parts that have to be replaced every 1-2 years. High quality upholstery could last longer depending on use.

What part of a multi gym breaks most often? Cables and handgrips are the items that break the most often on a multi gym. These items are seen by manufacturers as ‘wear parts’. That means they have to be replaced regularly. How often depends on how often the machine is used but usually 2 years with moderate use.
