Power Systems is a 25 year old company manufacturing advanced fitness and performance products meant for commercial settings such as fitness studios and club chains. Some of its products such as treadmills and its fitness decks can also be used in home gyms. Since its products are meant for people who want to push themselves hard every day, Power System is expected to provide you with the finest quality products that can bear a lot of rough use.
We recently came across the Power Systems Fitness Deck, a fantastic all-in-one training system for cardio and strength training. It is more like a stepper but with extra-large foldable legs that make it function like a plyometric box and a ramp. Plus, the top surface of the deck can be folded to three positions, making it work like an adjustable weight bench.
95% of the buyers have agreed that the Power Systems Fitness deck is an amazing piece of equipment for small homes. It can’t really replace a weight bench but it is still a good option if you do not have enough space or if you aren’t too much into weight training.
Let’s learn more about it and find out why it is one of the best fitness decks for home gyms.
Quick Review Summary
Power Systems Fitness deck is a highly versatile equipment for cardio and aerobic exercises. The top surface has rubber knobs, which provide you with good grip during fast-paced workouts. But, these knobs might cause some inconvenience when you lie on the surface for benchwork. The legs are pretty easy to adjust and they do not get unlocked so easily, which is a good thing because you can rely on them. Comes with just 90 days warranty.

Easy adjustability of the legs makes it perfect for circuit training
The legs can be folded flat to make it work like a basic 8” stepper.
When they are opened and locked in their respective positions, the top surface is about 14” from the ground, which is enough to be used as a plyometric box or as a ramp. The legs can be operated using a lever, which makes the process super easy and quick. This is exactly what you need to do fast-paced cardio workouts.
The best thing about the Power Systems Fitness deck is that, once locked, the legs remain fixed in their position unless you use the level to change the setting. A number of other fitness decks do miss out on this feature. The legs, even after being locked, come undone rather easily, which could cause accidents. If you are doing a fast-paced aerobic or cardio, you need something sturdy and reliable like the Power Systems Fitness Deck.
Short warranty period
Power System is offering just a 90 days warranty on its fitness deck whereas all other competitive products such as the Yes4All fitness deck, Reebok aerobic workout deck, and Escape Fitness deck V2.0 come with 1-year warranty.
Short warranty period can obviously make you doubt its quality. But, don’t worry; hundreds of buyers, in their reviews, have mentioned that the quality and durability of this Power System Fitness deck is quite good and you can expect it to bear a pretty decent use.
The circular knobs on the top surface may feel uncomfortable
The other fitness desks have grooves on their surface. They too are uncomfortable but you can cover them up with a towel and that helps.
The knobs of the Power Systems Fitness deck, however, are more uncomfortable than grooves. Plus, even if you cover them with a towel, they might still feel uncomfortable enough to distract you during your benchwork.
Well, the all-in-one fitness decks are obviously the space-saver alternatives, so you will have to accept these minor issues.
We are giving this a rating of 4.8 out of 5.0.
