How Hard is it to Assemble the X9 and How Much Time will it Take?
Assembling the X9 does not require any special skills. A basic tool set (Allen wrench which is included, socket set, screwdriver, etc) will cover the full assembly of the X9. The heavy grade steel used on the X9 may require up to 3 guys (and 4 guys when installing the "Twin Boom Cable Arms" due to the weight and insertion point on top of the machine). Otherwise two guys can handle the rest. We recommend buying a large pizza to attract friends for this "Barn Raising" event.
The amount of time required to assemble the X9 will depend on how many options you have purchased. For the basic free weight platform (frame, legs, spotting system) it should take between 2 and 3 hours. Each additional option will cumulatively add more time to that.
The frame "walls" come fully welded reducing assembly time as well as making for a more rigid structure. You simply bolt the legs to the side frames then stand them vertically on top of the two bottom frame "trays", hand tighten bolts connecting those three parts. Lastly you bolt top arched tubing cross sections to the side walls and level the X9 to the floor using the height adjustable foot nodes.
Where Can I Find Assembly Instructions For My Bodyforce Product?
Assembly instructions will be posted initially in a picture/text format. You will be able to find basic assembly information via the pop-up menu located on each individual product page. When you purchase a Bodyforce product you will be given a passcode which you will enter on the Assembly Instructions Page . This will give you access to a full set of instructions.
How Will Your Professional Assembly Service Work?
We are currently establishing a professional assembly service covering most major metropolitan areas across the USA. For a fee (yet to be determined) a technician will come directly to your house/facility and assembly your Bodyforce product for you. This is the perfect solution for those with busy lifestyles preferring to order, ship and have their X9 operational with one simple click. More details to follow.
How Are the Swing Wing and Monolift Different?
The Monolift attaches at the back of the X9, the Swing Wing attaches at the front of the X9 (locks onto Safety Spotters). The primary function of the Monolift is squats/benchpress and stabilization. The Monolift as a system and also arms separately can adjust in height. The Swing Wing also allows squats and benchpress but other attachments as well. By placing the Lower Crossbar on the Swing Wing, other items such as Dips Handles, VKR, Multi-function Pad can be attached.
Future items under development can also be plugged into the Swing Wing. The Swing Wing is height adjustable through the arms. To adjust the height of the Swing Wing, the Safety Spotter height would need to be changed. The standard configuration for the X9 has the Safety Spotters always in the highest position and normally there is no need to move the Swing Wing system higher or lower. The Swing Wing has two separate locking discs to adjust arm angle. The Monolift has a single locking disc.
Is the Stabilizer Pad Required to Use the Peck Deck?
The Stabilizer Pad is not required to use the Pec Deck. You can effectively use the Pec Deck without this attachment. However, it is useful for supporting your body to add stabilized targeting to your workouts while performing Pec Deck or Cable Exercises. Note: The Swing Wing at the front of the machine accepts this stabilizing attachment as well. Note: The Stabilizer Pad replces the previous Ball and Cage, serving the same function.
What's the Relationship Between the Gun Rack and the Monolift ?
They both attach at the rear of the X9. You would purchase one or the other, but not both. Primary use is squats but the Monolift can go lower for Benchpress as well.
Is the Pec Deck the Same Height as the 2D/3D Articulating Cable Arms?
The Pec Deck is a slightly lower height than both articulating arms.
What's the Difference Between the 2D Articulating Cable Arms and 3D Articulating Cable Arms?
The 2D Articulating Arms are able to change positions laterally, anywhere from the front to the back of the X9. The 3D Articulating Arms cover a similar range but also have a secondary arm that rotates vertically 360 degrees, similar to a clock. This allows lateral and vertical adjustments.

As a quick overview, materials found on the frame and options include: Stainless steel tubing with gas assist springs- Monolift system, customized 8 gauge tubing, precision linear bearings, 40mm hardened steel guide rods, proprietary spotting system, Twin-boom 3-axis cable system and many other features not offered on any competing machine.
This is not a normal, everyday fitness product. Our products are something special that you will take pride in ownership for years to come. Also please take a look at our Comparison Matrix to see how the X9 and H3 stack up against the competition in pricing and features.
We designed the X9 allowing the user to start with a basic (albeit premium) free weight platform. From there he/she has the ability to tailor-make it to their desired budget/requirements. An engaging bundled package with some of our most popular options (including bench and cable/carriage system). Please click on the "Packages" button on each product page for more specific information. Pricing will be adjusted upward after the initial discounted sales period.
We currently have over 15 options ready or in the pipeline. Different options will appeal to different people depending on their objectives. We will continue to create more options based upon user feedback and recommendations.
A person can start with the basics now and as their needs/budget increase, add more options later. We have worked hard to "future proof" the design so the attach points remain consistent. Other companies want you to buy entirely new products every few years and don't worry about future proofing. In fact, they typically stand against this concept for increased revenue and market share to support their multiple layers of management/overhead, etc. We focus on premium function and value. Our prime directive is to sell one amazing machine to each customer once, supporting them with great service and options over a lifetime.

Where Can I See Videos or a Review of the X9 Hybrid Gym?
We were going to shoot some HD video of our prototype but then elected to wait for the production units underway to avoid confusion. As soon as we receive a production unit, we will be creating videos that articulate the many benefits the X9 and H3 have to offer. John Stone of JohnStoneFitness will also be receiving one of these units and is planning on doing a thorough review. I understand he may take some video as well. If you know John, he will be going through everything with a fine tooth comb.
