Marcy Eclipse HG3000 Compact Home Gym

Marcy HG3000 Multi-Gym Review

Summary: The HG3000 multi-gym from Marcy solves the space problem. This setup does not need a separate garage space, it can easily fit in the corner of any room – and has the versatility to work all the key muscle groups hard. It is also the cheapest home multi-gym in the impressive Marcy range.

No wonder the HG3000 is a best-seller.

You get 68kg (150lbs), with a cable and pulley system to quickly switch between workouts and total weight. Stations include a curl pad, chest press, pec dec, leg extension with ‘EZ lat’ and more. This setup is built with alloy steel, and uses aircraft cables with a 2000lb tensile strength (put another way, its as solid as they get!).

Excellent feedback for the Marcy HG3000 over several years. You get a 2-year warranty from Marcy, and free kerbside delivery too.

Overall, a fantastic value setup from the biggest name in home multi-gyms – check out the impressive gallery and the latest price now – on this dedicated HG3000 page at the Marcy UK amazon store!

Detailed Review of the Marcy Eclipse HG3000 Compact Home Gym

The Marcy Eclipse HG3000 compact home multi-gym will give you a complete workout, all in the comfort of your own home or garage.

This is the lowest priced setup in the Marcy range – and is small enough to fit into the corner of a room (no garage or separate room needed). Assembled dimensions are:

  • 172cm long, 91cm wide and 210cms tall.

It weighs in at a sturdy 120kgs.

The Eclipse HG3000 is made from alloy steel, and has the smart looks to go with the solid build quality you’d expect from Marcy. The weight stack is 150lbs (68kgs), with a pin / pulley system to quickly adjust as you go. It comes with ankle straps and chains – and you even get a workout chart. I love the attention to detail which you won’t find on no-brand home gyms. For example, check out the stitched padded upholstery on the preacher curl pad. I recommend a rubber mat to put under your gym – this is much easier if you do it before setting it up.

Key Muscle Groups Covered: The Workouts

The HG3000 features a high pulley system with a lateral bar, a low pulley system with a straight bar, leg extensions with foam rollers, a dual function chest press and pec dec combination. The weight stack of 150 pounds (68kg) uses a selector pin, making weight changes quick and easy. The high pulley system is versatile and can be used for tricep pushdowns and lat pulldowns – so you can ensure your back and arms get the range of workouts.

Here are all the exercises covered by the HG3000:

  • Seated Bench Press
  • Pectoral Fly
  • Tricep Push-Down
  • Wide Lat Pull-Down
  • Seated Bicep Curl
  • Standing Bicep Curl
  • High Pulley Ab Crunch
  • Seated Leg Extension
  • Leg Curl
  • Outer Leg Kick
  • Leg Kick Back
  • Inner Leg Kick
  • Front Deltoid Raise
  • Upright Row

Feedback: What Regular Users of the Marcy Eclipse SG3000 Multi-Gym Had to Say?

When you consider the value price-point for the HG3000, the feedback is excellent. At the time of writing, 89% of people gave either 4 or 5-stars.

Positives that came up in multiple comments were based around ‘ a great little gym for the money’ – emphasising that this is at the cheaper end of home multi-gym setups. While the assembly is always a pain point for some people, most people found it simple enough. 4 to 6 hours alone (obviously halved with two people helping) was mentioned.

As you’d expect from Marcy, there are very few issues with quality. One buyer noted that you should not compare this small multi-gym to the stand-alone equipment at commercial gyms. That said, the same buyer was pleased with their setup.

Even with the stellar reputation of Marcy for many years, I always recommend checking recent comments before making your final choice of home gym.

Alternatives to the Marcy Eclipse HG3000 Multi-Gym?

My golden rule for cheaper home gym setups is to avoid the obvious ‘knock-offs’ – those brands where the names don’t make sense or are just collections of random capital letters.

Here are two tried and tested alternatives at the value end of the market:

  • Marcy HG5000 GymMarcy Eclipse HG5000 Multi-Gym: This is the next model up from the HG3000 in the impressive Marcy range. It is bigger, though not massively so. The biggest difference is the 90kg weight stack, compared to 68kg for this one. If you are worried you’ll out-train that smaller stack, then the extra money for this bigger multi-gym could be the perfect insurance policy. Check out my review here.
  • v-Fit Herculean: A popular setup for your first home gym for many years now, this is a great value multi-gym with a 72kg weight stack. It is smaller, with many comments saying its perfect for users under 6 foot – but on the small side if you are taller. All the key muscle groups are covered, making this a best-seller. Here is my V-Fit Herculean Gym Review.

Wrapping Up: Is the Marcy Eclipse HG3000 the Right Home Multi-Gym for You?

Marcy quality, a versatile setup and a super-low price point compared to other home multi-gyms keeps the Eclipse HG3000 on the best-seller lists.

There are two key buyers for the HG3000. First, not everyone has the space for a huge multi-gym – and this model fits into a corner easily. Second, people looking for a versatile home setup, without needing the bells and whistles of expensive gyms love the HG3000. It has plenty of resistance, covers all the key muscle groups and has the quality you’d expect from this long-running global brand.

No need to wait for your dream garage setup to build a body you are proud of – the Marcy HG3000 will get the job done.
