    Important Announcement:

    We are happy to report the first X9 and H3 units will soon (90 days out on production) be available. Due to the initial demand, we expect a backlog pushing into next year. We will begin accepting refundable deposits for the first delivery positions in the coming weeks.

    More will follow once we have an exact day the sign up will go live. Those wishing to get an early delivery position should plan to sign up first. We will offer deliveries in the order received.

    Those signing up during the initial order period will receive special one-time pricing. What does that mean? Many of you have waited months and even years for this product. We want to reward you for your incredible patience and willingness to take a chance on us. Because of your loyalty you will be offered special pricing lower than any in the foreseeable future. This includes international customers.

    If you are thinking about purchasing a home gym and see the long term benefit of owning the best all in one home gym on the market, now would be the time to purchase. The X9 will be the last gym you will ever want or need.

    I've been probably aware of this for years ever since John mentioned it a few years back. How much is this thing going to cost? I am from Canada.

    Hello SuperRex,

    Thank you for being a loyal Bodyforce follower. We do appreciate! We are trying to push the loyalty launch pricing down as low as possible. A special one time discount price list will be sent to all who have supplied their contact information through this thread or directly to Bodyforce.

    I know you want at least a ballpark regarding pricing. I will post that below. Again, I need to emphasize, these prices will be available only to those who have signed up here or contacted us directly.

    With discounts applied, we hope to offer the most basic system (frame, barbell rack and safety strap) for just under $2K. You will be able to add any option you want from there. With discounts applied, we hope to offer a freeweight system with our not yet announced "Swing Wing" at or near $3300. With discounts applied, we hope to offer a robust functional training package including 300 lbs of stack plates, our deluxe gliding bench (Catalyst H3XL...this has more travel than our standard H3) , leg developer, high cable crossover arms and articulating low cable arms, full free weight capabilities, etc. for under $6K. This package will allow for seated leg press, belt squat, leg extension/curl and more. With discounts applied, we hope to offer a "Titan T3 killer" (with stack plates AND carriage systems) near the $8700 price point.

    Also for this special launch, we will offer to upgrade any system from a fixed cable arm set to a swiveling set for $260. Bodyforce is the only company in the world to offer this function which has several advantages, not the least being able to move the arms out of the way when doing free weights but also being able to swing both arms together, doubling the available cable resistance for things like lat pulldown.

    One thing to take into consideration, the larger the package the more we are able to discount. Not everybody is in the same situation financially. Some will want to just get the basic platform with the idea they can add as their needs and budget change. Those with the ability, and that have a long term plan, will want to consider the bigger packages as they can save more money vs buying one option at a time. Financing will also be available. Part of the cost of financing gets cancelled out with the discount you receive on a larger package.

    As others have noted, having two independent selectorized weight stacks (up to a total of 400 lbs) available is really great as it allows you to pin the weight and get moving right away. We are excited to talk about our new Swing Wing. It offers benefits not found on any machine on the market. More to come.

    Hope this helps!

    Hello,

    We recently received a question regarding required space for the horizontal articulating arms and I wanted to clarify here. We have increased their length by six inches each side.

    Here are the minimum suggested distances for all three cable arms that mount on top of the X9:

    Suggested minimum space for fixed cable arms (similar to what are found on the Titan) is still 10 feet. Suggested minimum space for horizontal articulating cable arms is now 12 feet. Suggested minimum space for 3D cable arms is 11 feet although you can get by with as little as 10. These are minimum values and more space will give you greater freedom depending on what exercise you intend to perform.

    Please let us know if you have further questions!

    Thanks,

    Bodyforce

    An earlier version of the H3 Catalyst Bench. We've improved it even further! This is the most robust and functional weight bench on the market, bar none. The H3 also has a big brother, the H3XL with extended length/travel and capabilities.

    Overall a good first day for signups! Thanks to all who took the time to claim their position and discount. (Some right at 6AM this morning!) So far packages 2 and 3 are leading in popularity. If you are at all interested in purchasing what we believe to be the best all in one gym on the market, now is the time to sign up and receive the pre-order discount! The last day to get the discount locked in is October 7.

    I'm excited this is finally coming to fruition, and I put my name in the queue. I have shoulder and back injuries and the flexibility of the X9 will be very useful to me. I have a few questions:

    (1) Is there an anticipated ship cost in addition to the prices mentioned above? Shipping 3,000 lbs can't be cheap. Also, are you willing to tell us what the undiscounted price will be?

    (2) Will there be some videos showing people actually using the equipment? It's one thing to see some animations, but it will be more useful to see someone doing a large number of exercises with substantial weights to see how smooth the movements are.

    (3) Can we expect an impartial (third-party) review before deposits become unrefundable? I can't imagine many people are going to drop 9 grand on a completely untested product. It looks awesome, but there are many intangibles that need to be tested, for example, the comfort doing leg presses or pec deck flyes. Most "home-gym" type machines are uncomfortable and even dangerous to use with heavy weights compared to commercial machines because they force the body into the wrong position or the padding is insufficient.

    (4) When can we expect a full list of the different add-ons and their costs (and which are included with each of the packages)?

    (5) Is there a full list of lifts/exercises that can be performed with this machine?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for signing up and sending these questions. After the price goes up and the product finds it's way into wider circulation, you will proudly wear the badge of early adopter. More importantly, you will be getting amazing workouts with the X9. I know I keep repeating this but we appreciate you following the development of the X9 for so long! Please see answers to your questions below.


    For pre-order customers we anticipate a 50/50 share on the shipping (ie shipping costs $600, you pay $300). We are also looking at some outside the box solutions to further decrease shipping costs such as Uship.


    We want our videos to reflect the final iteration, the one you will receive. Those units are in production as we speak. We will be creating extensive videos with that edition. It is our belief that those videos will create a lot of buzz for the X9 and H3.


    As mentioned previously, John Stone (the owner of this website) will receive one of these units. If you follow John very closely you will know he is a no BS kind of guy. If he likes this product, he will say so. Likewise, if he does not like it he will tell us what he does not like. While we are confident he will like it, we are willing to hold your unit at our warehouse until his review is complete. You can decide at that time if you want to move forward with delivery or pass to the next in line. If you decide to pass, your money would immediately be refunded. For the record, it appears the first deliveries are sold out.


    On October 7 (six days from now in the USA), the discount sign-up period will have ended. At that time we will be going down the list contacting those who filled out the discount signup form. Full pricing information, along with a list of available options will be made available. We will answer any questions you may have. If you like what you see at that time, we will ask you to lock in your delivery position with a 30% deposit.


    Regarding function, you can check all the standard exercises off the list (ie Flat/Incline/Decline Bench, Military Press, etc)

    Combine our robust functional training cable suite (high and low) with the H3 gliding bench and things start to get interesting. The X9 is a Superset/Dropset/Giantset superhero. Dare we say, it will be the flagship of any machine on the market in this regard? Yes we will.

    Now add the two independent linear carriages, You’ve got “Smith” function yes, but so much more. Ultimately the X9, with its assortment of options, will perform nearly every exercise you find at the commercial gym. On top of that, we still have a couple Easter eggs (options) to reveal.

    As a side note, I will be interested to hear John's review as he contrasts the X9 with other equipment he has used, including the Titan.


    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the information. Another question is will it take a PhD in mechanical engineering to put this thing together? Will it be difficult to disassemble and reassemble in the event of a move?

    Assembly is pretty straight forward. The X9 primarily uses one size of Allen bolt. The base frame is welded at the top, reducing bolt connections there.

    Naturally the more options you add the greater time you should allow for assembly. If you are ordering a package that includes the carriage system, there are optional (recommended) counter weights that drop down into the frame tube. This, along with attaching the cable arms (heavy) are a little more challenging. We will be available to guide you along the way.

    If you are disassembling and transporting you will want to have MANY padded blankets to protect the finish of the X9.

    You can get a basic idea what assembly looks like here:


    Since the time of this video, we have separated the botton frame tube to make the frame sides/top a little lighter and easier to move into position for assembly.


    Please let us know if you have further questions.


    Thanks,

    Bodyforce
