The thing is am ready to take it to the next level and I can’t seem to find the pro version with out getting ripped offed. It’s selling in Amazon for over 300.00 dollars every known and then. Can you help me find it where I don’t need to deal with Tristar Products terrible customer service? It would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Over the past 4 years I have owned 3 Rack workout stations. I keep one at home and take one on the road with me for when i travel. I love the functionality of the rack and the efficient yet effective workouts it comes with on dvd. Unfortunately 2 of the racks broke. One of the T bars broke off on each one when doing multi grip explosive pushups. Even though you said that the rack can be “run over with by your truck” and that it wont hurt it i still took very good care of these racks because they are so useful to me. I used to be able to buy a rack from walmart.com but now they dont sell it and the rack workout website is no longer up and running. The last time i seen was that Terrell Owens was taking over the rack and that he had some new workouts that come with it. I would like to continue to use the rack workout for as long as i workout but like i said i am on my last one and i can’t find where to purchase a rack anywhere for a reasonable price. If you can help me or direct me to where i can purchase another rack or two i would greatly appreciate it. The rack workout is the real deal and works great when combined with your Mens Health Cover Model Workout. Yes i also have your book. Hope to hear from you soon!
