Force USA G9 All-In-One Gym
This Force USA G9 Multi Training Station from GymRats is an exceptional all-in-1 gym for the home gym or P.T. studio. Using the same commercial grade components as the G20, G12 and G6 the ForceUSA G9 differs simply by being a "Plate Load" machine for the cable pulleys rather than the weight-stack option of the other models.
Anyone that has a collection of weight plates already (either Olympic or Standard)

Force USA G9 Monster Gym
8 machines in 1 Strength Training Station offering over 250 exercises
The Force USA G9 Monster Gym from GymRatZ combines 8 machines into one compact and extremely versatile Plate Loaded weight training machine.
To date the Force USA G9 Gym has shared the crown of our ForceUSA sales with the Force USA G6 and Force USA G12. All offering very similar features but with their own unique differences.
The Force USA G9 All-in-1 Gym is to all intents and purposes the "plate load" version of the G12 in that it has a 1:1 pulley ratio on the cables, a counter-balanced smith machine and the same range of accessories along with "full commercial" grade components.
Unlike some of the other plate load units in the range the
Whether you are a bodybuilder, powerlifter personal trainer, performance athlete or just looking to have a great workout from home. The ForceUSA G9 Monster has everything you need to have a great workout everytime you train no matter what muscle group, exercises or level of development.
Force USA G9 Monster Multi-Gym – 8 Strength Machines in One perfect package!
The Force USA G9 is described by manufacturers as having a power rack/cage but it's technically a half-rack as with the rest of the Force USA range. Difference between a full Power Rack /Cage and a half rack is that the lift-off hooks and safety arms extend from the front of the frame rather than between front and back of the frame which makes it easier to perform a wider range of exercises using an adjustable bench and lifting from the front of the frame.
Whether you want to bench or squat, we’ve got you covered. Adjustable commercial grade J-Hooks allow you to vertically adjust heights when lifting or squatting and are designed to handle heavy loads while also protecting your barbell.
Functional Trainer (Cable Crossover)
This Force USA G9 Monster has the same dual adjustable pulley system of the rest of the range except both handles are directly interconnected to use a single plate loaded weight carrier mounted at the rear of the Force USA G9 Frame.
The weight plate carrier glides up and down in smith machine like guide rods with smooth nylon bushes offering a virtually friction-free action. One thing to note is the plate carrier assembly is built from heavy guage steel to ensure it can handle the maximum weights loaded onto it but this does give the quite a high "no-load" weight as the carrier it's self still weighs in a little shy of 10kg so not light enough for some of the much smaller muscle group exercises for which light dumbbells would be a better choice.
The Functional Trainer and cable crossover allows you to perform over 75 different exercises. Includes 6 functional trainer attachments for the ultimate strength training workout. Features 16 adjustable height positions to perform shoulder, arms, chest, back, core, and leg exercises. Dual cable pulley system that each connects to weight plates with two 12” sleeves that hold up to twelve 2” thick plates. Fluid cable movement via commercial grade pulleys and 6.2mm nylon coated mil-spec aircraft quality cables that are tested to 2,000lb. The pulley systems are easily adjusted vertically on the structure using just one hand.
As with the Force USA G12, this G9 has a commercial grade Counter-balanced smith machine that uses high grade bearings for extremely smooth performance and precision.
Release and re-rack the weight by simply rotating the bar. This allows the user to safely perform a variety of exercises without the need for a spotter.
Innovative counter-balanced commercial grade Smith Machine and guide rails prove ultra-smooth and natural movement. Premium safety catch allows you to max out your training without requiring the need for a spotter. The included Smith Machine bar features grip knurling for a solid–yet comfortable–feel.
You can quickly convert the Force USA G9 smith machine into a vertical leg press thanks to the leg press attachment. This enables you to target the quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings and inner thighs and simply locks onto the smith machine bar latching into the lock-off smith hooks so a slight change in angle of the foot either latches or frees the assembly at the start or end of the set.
Note: ForceUSA G9 Smith Machine needs to be loaded with either Olympic or standard weight plates and the unit can be set-up for either when installed but a combination of both isn't particularly feasible.
Force USA offers the only Functional Trainer of its kind to include a leg press attachment that you can use either on a bench or when in use on the floor.
Chin Up Station
Built into the frame of the Force USA G9 multi-gym is a multi-grip chin up station with a range of grip positions such as wide grip, close grip, underhand, overhand, neutral a variety of others.
"Power Bands" can also be added to provide a degree of assistance when performing bodyweight chins although bands are not included with the G9.
Ergonomically designed multi-grip chin up and pull up station with a massive 772lb weight rating. Knurling grips positioned for classic grip, hammer grip, wide grip, narrow grip, and pronated grip.
To perform a variety of dips, all you have to do is attach the multi-grip dip handles to the G9 Half rack uprights.
The height is adjustable which gives you the flexibility to use weight belts or bands to add resistance or assist you.
The Multi-Grip Dip Handle attachments provide different width options for you to choose from. Adjustable height for use with weight belts or resistance bands.
Core Trainer/ Landmine
Also included with the ForceUSA G9 Monster is the landmine attachment which allows the user to perform a variety of rotational torso training as well as may upper and lower body exercises when using an optional barbell (Not Included).
Includes an attached landmine station that is suited for all types of rotational torso training and allows for a wide range of upper body training when using a barbell (sold separately).
The vertical leg press attachment also transforms into a low row station footpad that combines with either side of the cable pulley system and delivers a full-body workout. Strengthens and tones your upper and lower body simultaneously.

ForceUSA G9 Installation details
All of the ForceUSA range are perfectly feasible for self installation providing the user is assisted (no individual component is very heavy) and as long as one person can follow the installation manual and is competent in the art of using a spanner and socket set it shouldn't take more than a day to assemble.
The ForceUSA G9 is no different in this respect and although the assembly instructions look complicated most of the frame bolts are the same.
Here at GymRats we (Pete & Steve) have plenty of first hand experience installing the ForceUSA gyms and will be happy to provide advice, hints and tips picked up through our own experiences of installing many ForceUSA G6 units.
Pete has written a .pdf document more specifically for the Force USA G12 Monster Installation but most of the tips transfer across through the whole ForceUSA range. The tips are very significant and not detailed elsewhere either on youtube or installation manuals but they WILL save the self installer heartache, headaches and prevent potentially costly mistakes. All these tips will be e-mailed to you once delivery has been booked. Even we had to do a first install just like the self-install customers. It's really not as daunting a task as it first appears, and unlike flat-packed furniture, we're just a phone call, WhatsApp Video Call or e-mail away.
Questions and Answers
Q: Does it come with weights, a bench or a barbell
No, it doesn't. They are all available for purchase separately on this website.
Q: What size weights fit this unit
The barbell on the smith machine uses Olympic plates while the pulley system uses either Standard or Olympic plates.
Q: Does the Leg Press attachment come with it
Yes, it does.
Q: Can I do lat pull downs on the G9
Yes, you can. This unit includes a knee holder attachment and a lat pulldown bar.
Q: Are the cable crossovers far enough apart to work your chest effectively during flyes
The pulley uprights are 48 inches apart. The pulleys freely rotate on the uprights so if you stand outside of the cage you can effectively start your flyes at a wider angle as needed.
Q: What is the shipping weight
The shipping weight of the G9—including boxes, packing materials and pallet—is approximately 608 lbs. It is delivered in one seperate box by a freight trucking company.
Q: Can I do squats using the spotter arms or the smith machine
Yes, you can use both. You can squat with your own barbell using the J-Hooks and Spotter Arms outside of the rack. You can also use the safety hooks and stoppers that are built into the Smith Machine.
Q: What is the pulley ratio
The pulley ratio is 1:1 when using both cables and 2:1 when using a single side. This means if you have 100 lbs loaded the resistance is 100 lbs with a 1:1 ratio and 50 lbs on the 2:1 ratio.
Q: What is the minimum ceiling height I need
The minimum ceiling height to be able to do a full pull up with your head above the bar is 8' 3".
Q: Does it come assembled
No, this unit requires assembly. All necessary tools and instructions are included in the box. However, there are third party assembly services you can contract with to assemble it for you. Please contact us if you need a recommendation.
