H2H ROUND-2: Shipping & Setup

View Official Scorecard

Shipping: Both items can be bought at stores such as Sports Authority and Wal Mart, or online shops such as Amazon, Sears Marketplace, and Sports Authority. General shipping time is less than 2 weeks. The Bowflex is 144 lbs to ship, whereas the Marcy is almost 400 pounds to ship.

Set up: The Bowflex machine uses power rods instead of actual weights to train with. While this concept may seem foreign to those who have never used one before, it is fairly simple to set up and basic to use.

A detailed manual is included with both gyms. Set up time should take about 2 hours for the Bowflex and roughly 4 hours to set up the Marcy Diamond home gym. The many pulleys, screws, and small parts that ship with the Marcy Diamond unit are not clearly labeled, and it can take a while to get oriented and fully assembled.

Overall, the Bowflex home gym bests the Marcy Diamond in shipping cost and setup time. While the shipping particulars are dependent on the store used, the Bowflex is much lighter to carry and thus, less costly to ship. The Bowflex also comes with great instructions, and set up time is normally much shorter than the Marcy Diamond.

    I don't know much about the Olympus, but I own the D300 and love it. One thing I love is it feels solid (kind of heavy). If you are planning on doing wendidgs, it has some auto focusing problems, but you going to get that either way (focusing on the background). Anyways I love this camera, and its not going out of date anytime soon!Hope Im not getting you into something you wont like, but have fun with which ever one you get!References :
