Fitness Reality® have made this workout bench about as easy to assemble as it could be. The assembly process is split into 6 simple steps, making it very straightforward. All of the nuts and bolts are individually packaged according to the step that they’re used in, which is brilliant and something other manufacturers of workout equipment should consider doing. However, the drawback is that if you have to send it back for some reason, you’ll struggle to get it all to fit back in the box so neatly. All of the necessary tools come in the box, though you may want to have a small mallet / hammer on hand if you have one. All up, it shouldn’t take more than about 30 – 45 minutes to assemble, probably less if you have someone helping you.
