Body Champ PT600 Review: Is It Right For You?

Ready to upgrade from the horizontal bar in the doorway, deepen your push-up range, and let gravity help you strengthen your abs even more? You need a power tower.

In this Body Champ PT600 review, we’ll look at the pros and cons of this particular model, what it offers, the exercises you can do on it, and other power towers you may want to consider if you decide this one isn’t the perfect fit for you, your frame, or your vision for the home gym you’re building.

Even though you may be shocked by how many power tower options there are out there (been there!), we’ll help you know what to look for and narrow down your choice.

Question: Is the Body Champ PT600 Worth It?

Answer: I would say so. It’s reasonably priced, sturdy, and covers the basic exercises you’d expect from a power tower. Are there more robust options on the market that you can do more with? Of course, but they’ll cost more and maybe more than what you need. It really comes down to what type of equipment you want in your home gym and how you want it to be set up. If you want a separate bench or punching bag (or already have one or both), you’ll be fine with the Body Champ PT600.

Question: What Are the Dimensions of the Body Champ PT600?

Answer: It’s 57.5” L x 42.5” W x 84.63” H.

Question: Can You Hang a Punching Bag from the Pull-up Bar?

Answer: I wouldn’t recommend it. The power tower would be likely to topple over if hit hard enough from the right angle since it’s not designed for that type of force and only weighs 70 pounds, itself. I recommend looking for an alternative with a punching bag option if your goal is to have a power tower and punching bag in one place.

Question: What is the Max Weight for the Body Champ PT600?

Answer: Approximately 250 pounds

Question: Can You Use Resistance Bands on the Body Champ PT600?

Answer: I don’t recommend it because it’s not built for use with resistance bands and the power tower itself doesn’t weigh all that much, to begin with. However, very lightweight bands may be okay to use for some exercises. Still, I’d caution against it just to be on the safe side. Some power towers are built to be used that way (in fact, one alternative on this list includes free bands).

Question: Is the Body Champ PT600 Sturdy?

Answer: Yes, it’s sturdy and feels solid.

Body Champ PT600 Review Conclusion

The Body Champ PT600 is an affordable, solid, sturdy addition to a home gym. Its shortcomings, aside from potentially being too wide for some body types, really boil down to personal preference, the equipment you want in your home gym, and the configuration you would like to have it in.

This doesn’t have or support a bench or punching bag, but it covers the basics just fine.

If you want your power tower to stay against a wall or in a corner, this is one of the better options on the market and you’ll likely be satisfied.

If you’re looking for the most versatile piece of equipment you can get at a relatively low cost and aren’t concerned with the space your power tower will require, one of the other options on the list will definitely be a better choice.
