Summary: No other way to introduce this home multi gym from Marcy other than to say ‘this is one hell of a unit!’ You’ll get a full 90k weight stack, independent pec arms (as well as a regular chest press) high and low pulley systems, middle pulley for your abs and a leg extension. This unit is big, solid and fully adjustable. I recommend checking out the full picture gallery (as well as the buyer feedback and nice discount) on the dedicated product page over at amazon.co.uk.

Detailed Review of the Marcy Eclipse HG5000 Deluxe Home Multi-Gym
Choosing a home multi-gym unit is not something to take lightly – though this unit really does tick all of the right boxes.
The main innovative feature are the independent pec arms. I’ll cover these first, though really this should be thought of as an additional bonus – the unit would be excellent without these.
With a standard pec deck, the movement is restricted by the levers / weights. The innovation with the free moving arms is that you get the resistance without being restricted to a single curved trajectory. The arms move in 3 dimensions, which simulated free weight movement. You can see these on the main picture.
Overall this is a big unit, weighing in at 130kgs. Assembly is required and the maximum user weight advise is for 21 stone and under (manufacturers are notoriously cautious with this advice!). The HG500 multi gym is EN-957 safety compliant and comes with a 2 year warranty which covers all of the parts.
The list of features is impressive. There are 3 pulley systems, a high and low – along with a middle option which comes with a dual handle ab crunch strap. There is a leg extension, chest press system and the pec deck + independent arms already covered.
As well as the seat and weight stack adjustments, you can clip the extensions to the chains at different lengths to suit your height / reach. Those cables are ‘aircraft’ quality, and Marcy claim 2000lb of tensile strength for them.
Buyer Feedback for the Marcy HG5000 Multi-Gym
There is only a small amount of feedback at the moment – though this has been overwhelmingly positive. One reviewer gave 4 stars, though he was delighted with the machine, it came with some scuffed parts – which rightly cost the supplier a star. You will need to assemble this machine, and this looks to be a 2 person task, which will take quite a few hours to complete.
Buyers have complimented the sturdy build and the quietness of operation. The theme I am seeing throughout the feedback is that buyers did a lot of research on their options before buying – and were very happy with their choice once they got the machine up and running. One comment notes that this is better than hotel units.
The Marcy H5000 is an amazing unit – it really feels like every angle has been thought of, and the extra 3D movement of the additional pec arms is an innovation to add to the mix.
