LOL Colleen, I also tend to be an equipment glutton
So I have a question about "the rack"! I like that it folds up which my Leibert Equalizer doesn't do but I can't find one that has the padded seat! Is this some special add on that I'm not seeing?

Kristieb726, I ordered directly from their site years ago, and it was an add on, they offered it when I was paying, they also tried to sell me a dvd and weights, but I didn't add anything and still I got the dvd they were trying to sell me! (that one was not listed on the rotation. I did my seat pad on my own, I had wood, so I asked my DP to cut it for me, I bought a padded foam from the dollar store and bought some vynil-cuir, mine looks exactly like theirs. HTH

Eta: I do have a question though, you said your Lebert Equalizer doesn't folds up (they are two separated bars, so no need to folds up ), for the design of it I guess it shouldn't take that much of space? I'm attaching pics of the seat pad we did at home.

That is brillant! I might have to try that as a DIY project if I decide to purchase this. You're correct that the (equalizer) comes in two pieces and while I have them stacked closely I like the option that this folds flat. My condo is all open plan and small at 1200 sq. ft, so any extra space is appreciated...lol. By the way what did you use to stabilize the seat so that it doesn't slide off? Are there screw holes there already that can be used to attach a seat?

Thanks! I heard you on the space issues, I've limited space as well. To answer your question... Nothing! I mean, the way the handles for the push-ups are placed (on level 2 position) with the main metal frame create a rectangle making it stable (I hope I'm making sense), I haven't have any issues of it sliding at all while sitting on it, in the workouts he transitions from workout to workout really quickly so I guess that's why it was designed like that.
