What experts liked
It’s awesome that you can find a complete total gym in this price range. For the price of an annual gym membership, and in some cases less, you can get your own home gym. This means no more crowded gyms, or waiting on equipment, or stares from other people
- Top Fitness Magazine
This is a pretty basic home gym that can assist a variety of gym-goers. There’s a list of exercises provided with pictures and descriptions, so it’s decently easy to navigate the machine

It is a great home gym that gives you up to 150lb adjustable weight stacking that suits different people in your home. It is a well-built home gym that remains highly rated and recommended.

Thick and durable vinyl upholstery, with consistent padding for maximum comfort.
- Best Fitness Equipment
The Marcy MWM 990 home gym is an excellent price/value machine recommended for beginner and intermediate level trainees.

Marcy MWM-990 comes the 'Weight Stack Lock', allowing the user to lock weight stack, preventing the unauthorized use of this home gym. Personally, this is very interesting feature.
- Home Gyms 101
Although it may look like your average budget home gym, this model offers significant improvements. By that we mean the 150 lbs shielded stack, a well padded seat and a pretty high build quality. In other words, everything on this machine runs extremely smooth.
- Fitness Verve
This is one of the affordable complete home workout set. It provides over 30 strength-training exercises for the chest, back, lats, abdominals, arms, and legs. The 150 lb. weight stack provides good resistance and about as much weight that you can expect at its price range.
- Klassik Essentials

The Marcy 150 Ib Stack Home Gym is viewed among one of the best weight stack home gyms that offer durability with impressive performance. The Marcy home gym is designed with a heavy-duty steel frame that offers a precision build with a stable unit that remains sturdy during intense workout sessions.
- Aim Workout
What experts didn't like
If you’re six feet or over, you may not be fit comfortably in exercises that use the leg developer or the chest press. With a smaller general footprint, the MWM-990 was clearly designed for the average person. If you’re taller, your range of motion on some exercises may be restricted.
- Top Fitness Magazine
The only possible downside to this machine is the weight and height recommendations that come with it. Someone who’s taller, or a little heavier, may have a tough time using it with ease.

Handles for the flies don’t come back far enough
- The Z9

In case you’re wondering, the machine stack is not upgradable. There aren’t extra plates available that you can add, and the plate bars don’t allow any plate additions.
- Best Fitness Equipment
But, Marcy 990 is not for tall people who are over 6 feet. The lat pulldown provides a short range of motion for them, and the same is true for the chest press.

However, this home gym doesn’t fit everyone perfectly. If your height is more than 6 feet then you may not fit comfortably in exercises that use the leg developer or the chest press. This MWM-990 is clearly designed for the average person.

This home gym is not suitable for people who are taller than six feet as they won’t be able to exercise in full motion especially the leg workout.
