Information about the GymRatZ Smith Machine
(Our best selling Smith Machine by a long margin)
GymRatZ Heavy-duty Smith Machine. Solid construction from heavy gauge steel. There's good and bad with the new and traditional smith machines, GymRatZ combine the best of both. Traditional straight up and down smith machines can prove uncomfortable when performing certain movements - in particular smith machine bench press, subsequently, we provide the option of this slightly pitched (7 degree angle) Smith Machine. Also, on the majority of Smith Machines now, you'll have lock out holes (cut-outs) along the body of the frame that the hooks hook over, but not on our machine. The GymRatZ Smith Machine is fitted with traditional lock out pegs and hooks. I (Matt) think the lock out pegs are much easier to feel and see when the smith bar's locked back in to position. Most importantly, the GymRatZ Smith Machine is incredibly smooth and passes the test of being able to raise the bar (unloaded) by lifting from one side - many cheaper smith machines jamb.
This GymRatZ Smith Machine now comes with the addition of a front Gun-Rack for free-bar work, (squats, bench press etc), enhanced by the 7-degree backwards tilt of the front uprights, it also includes adjustable safety stops to ensure full and complete safety when you might not be able to lock the hooks back in for some reason, and to add to this, although not shown on the pictures this extra value package also comes with 4 x weight storage posts (2 on each side) attached to the rear uprights of the frame.
We also do a pure perpendicular (traditional) smith machine but we can't see any justifiable reason for not going with this one as it's got so many additional extras as standard.
I (Pete) Have used this smith machine for many years when training in the shop after hours. Squatting and pressing from the gun rack has never been an issue providing you know when NOT to go for the last rep which you inevitably won't make; although this isn't such an issue for bench press as you can re-rack and any height.
Our shop unit has neither the adjustable safety stops which are collars that slide up and down the guide rods and can be hooked into place to stop the bar and carrier from going too low, neither does our shop demonstrator have weight storage posts so when you add these extra features that now come as standard fitment into the price you can see just what a great addition to any commercial gym this Smith Machine is.
Key features as follows:
- Super-smooth 7 Degree off vertical for most ergonomic movement.
- 2 machines in 1
- Thompson Linear Bearings for super-smooth operation and long life
- 4 x Plate Storage Posts (not shown on current pictures)
- Adjustable Safety Stops
- 1200 mm x 2100 mm x 2200 mm

For rehabilitation or 'light' usage we also make a counterbalanced smith machine, see: GymRatZ Counterbalanced Smith Machine.
With a huge range of off-the-shelf colour options as standard we're sure you'll find just the right combination of frame, upholstry (and stitching) to match your gym colour scheme. We do think that stitching to match the frame colour is quite exceptional though and one of our favourite combinations is Orange frame, Black Upholstry and Orange stitching.

A favourite with schools and rehabilitation centres - the GymRatZ Counter Balanced Smith Machine. Offering the smoothness and toughness of the GymRatZ Smith Machine, but with the benefit of the smith bar being counter balanced to just 2kg.
The Selectorised Smith Machine has found favour with the growing increase in pedantic health and safety concerns whereby some gyms are equipped solely with selectorised gym equipment. So, in this instance, at least your gym can still provide versatility with machine such as the GymRatZ Selectorised
3D movement (up, down, backwards, forwards). Smith Machines have long been a gym favourite alongside power racks and the like. A 3D Smith Machine fits somewhere between the two, eliminating the guided straight up and down restraints of a generic smith machine, but not a fully free bar motion.
