The Rugged Fitness Y100 power rack is a feature-packed commercial-grade workstation for garage gyms and fitness clubs. With its durable and rugged build quality, along with several optional attachments, the Y100 is undoubtedly one of the better power racks on the market at this time considering its starting price point.
Y100 Power Rack
Build & Warranty
The Y100 power rack has 2″ x 3″ 11-gauge steel frames that support a max weight capacity of 1000 lbs. Fully assembled, the Y100 is already relatively stable, and due to it weighing close to 270 lbs, there isn’t a need to secure this model to the floor. In many cases, buyers of the Y100 will end up purchasing the Y200 rack extension, which extends the Rugged Power rack (Y100) by 18-inches for additional spotter access or storage without increasing the footprint
At 89″ high, the Y100 will fit in most locations. In addition, it has an electro-statically applied black powder coat finish and comes with the appropriate warranties. Full dimensions for the Y100 are 66″ L x 45″ W x 89″ H; giving the user plenty of space to perform all necessary movements inside the rack while keeping a relatively small footprint. Pin and pipe safeties and j-cups are also included.
Lastly, the Y100 uses Westside hole spacing. As a result, the holes in the uprights are closer together (25mm) near the bottom of the rack and further apart (50mm) toward the middle and top, allowing for more precise safety bar positioning for bench presses.
- In-Home Lifetime Warranty: on frames & welds, cables, pulleys, bushings, bearings, hardware, plates, guide rods, upholstery and grips.
- Commercial Lifetime Warranty: on frames and welds, 5-year warranty on cables, pulleys, bushings, bearings, hardware, plates and guide rods. 1-year warranty on upholstery and grips
Attachments and Combos
Besides the standard integrated chin-up bar, the Y100 power rack has several useful optional attachments. The Y200 rack extension will extend the Y100 rack by 18 inches for additional spotter access or storage without increasing the footprint. The Y200 will set you back another $229 but it is well worth the money in the long run.
Also, the Rugged Y210 lat pull-down adds a whole new set of exercise variations because of the cable system. It features a plate-loaded carriage design with 2” diameter weight posts to accommodate all Olympic weight plates and bumpers. Its easy bolt-on design makes installing to the rear of your Power Rack fast and straightforward.
The pulley system uses 2200 lb. tested nylon-coated aircraft-quality cables, and the frame is designed with 11-gauge 2”x 3” steel, just like the power rack. The lat and low row bars are included and designed with snap links to allow quick change and use with several cable attachments and handles.
Below are a couple of pictures of how the lat and rack extension would look assembled.Additional attachments for the Y100 includes bar holders, dip bars, ball target, weight horns, and heavy spotter arms.
Rugged Fitness Combos
Right now Rugged Fitness is offering a combo deal that packages the Y100 with the lat pull-down system, an adjustable bench, Olympic barbell with clamps, and a set of 225 lb Olympic iron weight plates for $1618. I don’t know how long that deal with last but you can see more about it on the Promotions page.
Rugged Fitness Y100 Power Rack
Whether you opt for a combo deal or stick with just the Y100 power rack you can’t go wrong. We’ve watched the price of the Y100 starting at $700 to today’s price of $559. That’s a steal and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s sold out very quickly.
