Buying equipment for the home gym can be a great one-time investment that will benefit your health for years to come.

Since it is a one-time investment in most cases, you really need to consider different options and buy the equipment that suits your present and future needs.

In one of our previous posts, we compared a power rack vs multi gym for home use and shared with you 7 different factors that you need to take into account before making your decision.

Similarly, we will share 7 factors that will help you determine which option between Powertec Levergym vs Multi Gym is more suitable for your home gym.

Those 7 factors are as follows:

  1. Price
  2. Safety
  3. Ability to Lift Heavier
  4. Variety
  5. Ease of Use
  6. Durability
  7. Effectiveness

So without any further ado, let’s take a look at how these two popular options for home gym match up!

1. Price – Winner: Multi Gym

If budget is your main concern, then multi gym is surely the more suitable option for you. At the time of writing this post, a standard multi gym in Australia costs about $1000 whereas the Powertec Levergym will cost you $2600. This doesn’t even include the cost of weight plates that you’ll need to buy separately.

However, the extra money that you will spend on the Powertec Levergym will offer you some unique benefits that we will discuss later in this post.

2. Safety – Tie!

Talking about safety in the Powertec Levergym vs multi gym debate, it’s a tie. Both pieces of equipment are safe for home use and are suitable for beginners.

Both of them are much safer the working out with free weights, but as with any type of exercise machine, you need to ensure that you warm up properly and use the equipment as per the manufacturer’s instructions to avoid any injuries.

3. Ability to Lift Heavier – Winner: Powertec Levergym

If you need something that allows you to lift really heavy weights, then a Powertec Levergym is definitely more suitable for you.

Almost all multi gyms come with a pre-built weight stack which means that you can’t really add more weight to it.

Powertec Levergym on the other hand allows you to lift up to 225 kg (in form of weight plates) which is more than enough for most people.

So if you are an advanced level lifter or someone who is looking to power lift in the future, a Powertec Levergym should be your go-to choice.

4. Variety – Winner: Powertec Levergym

The number of exercises that you can perform with a multi gym is quite limited as compared to what you can do with Powertec Levergym.

Now this doesn’t mean that you can’t train your whole body with a multi gym, but if you are looking for more variety and are looking to perform compound movements such as squats and deadlifts, then you should invest in Powertec Levergym.

5. Ease of Use – Winner: Multi Gym

It is easier to use a multi gym as compared to Powertec Levergym. You can easily change how much weight you want to lift for a specific exercise and you don’t need to worry about changing the weight plates or adding more weight to the bar. Everything is taken care of by the machine.

However, with Powertec Levergym, you’ll need to change or add the weight plates and adjust the bench according to the exercise that you want to perform.

But once you get used to it, it’s not really a big deal.

6. Durability – Winner: Powertec Levergym

Don’t get us wrong here! both machines are quite durable and come with a warranty but if we had to pick one, then Powertec Levergym is more durable as compared to a multi gym.

The main reason for this is that Powertec Levergym is made with commercial grade materials and is built to last. As mentioned earlier, you can lift up to 225 kgs of weight with Powertec Levergym whereas the maximum weight limit for most of the multi gyms is 75kgs.

7 Effectiveness – Tie!

The effectiveness of your workouts isn’t necessarily dependent on the type of equipment you’re using.

It all comes down to how well you use the equipment and how hard you push yourself during your workouts.

That being said, both Powertec Levergym and multi gyms are effective for building muscle and strength.

So it all comes down to your preference.
