Mark’s Summary: This adjustable weight bench from JX Fitness is flexible enough for both lay-flat and chair workouts. It can be used as a sit-up bench, used to store your dumbbells and is easy to store. This adjustable bench is at a lower price point than many non-adjustable (or not as flexible) products. It is solid, stable and has cushioned padding for comfort.
This is a best-selling weight bench. Feedback comes from 100’s of buyers, with the common thread running through the feedback being ‘value’ and ‘solid’.

This is heavy, solid bench. It weighs 16.6kg, using tubular steel construction. The maximum weight capacity is a massive 600lbs (that is more than 42 stone). Max user weight is advised at half of this. The dimensions are 47.3 inches, by 19.7 inches by 16.9 inches.
What sets the JX benches apart is the range of adjustments. There are 5 positions. You can use it as a classic flat bench, or as an incline bench. One extra I liked about this one is that it doubles up as a sit up bench too. You can even use it in-between, for example with resistance bands.
As well as the adjustments, you can attach other equipment to this bench. Examples include adding a squat rack, or even a half cage.
This bench has small wheels. When you lay it flat, you can wheel it into place. If you have owned a bench without wheels, you might already know the hassles of moving your bench around every time you want to switch workout.
The padded surface is thick, comfortable and wipes clean. It has a vivid light blue edge, with the main colour of the bench being black.
A final extra I noted is that you can use this bench to store your dumbbells.
The older version of this bench had 1000’s of happy users. This new version is also accumulating a lot of fans judging by the feedback. At the time of writing this, a full 80% of people gave it the maximum rating.
Two themes reoccur in the comments left by owners. One is that this adjustable weight bench is excellent value. At the price point, you get a versatile piece of home gym equipment which works perfectly for a wide range of exercises. Second, that this is high-quality – especially in today’s world of ‘generic’ brands with flimsy, low-quality products.
Some assembly is needed, though this did not get negative feedback (a good sign, as this often gets people grumbling).
Make sure you check out the latest feedback – whichever weight bench you buy. This can and does change fast (though JX have stood the test of time so far!).
A solid, versatile weight bench is a cornerstone of any home fitness setup. This model from JX Fitness works for multiple functions. You can use it as an incline bench, lay it flat for use with a cage or move it through stages. It also doubles up as a sit ups bench.
For the price point, you get a quality item, with tubular steel construction, wheels, and a padded surface.
This works for any home weights setup, though will have a wider appeal than that. Anyone that enjoys a barbell or dumbbell workout will benefit from this bench.
