Bio-Dyne Universal Total Home Gym Assembly Instructions
A Bio-Dyne Universal Total Home Gym enables you to have your own home gym and fitness center. However, before you can use it, you must assemble it. When doing so, be sure to have handy the detailed diagrams that come with the workout equipment and follow the directions in the order of construction.
Lay out all the base supports, upright bars, crossbars, plate shafts, pin shafts and stacked plates in the area where you are placing the workout equipment. Spread them out on the floor in the order of assembly from base to top. Have the socket set and all bolts, washers and nuts next to the frame.
Assemble the base by laying the bottom side supports of the frame parallel with each other. Connect the front and back base supports by putting the bolts in the holes of the supports and screwing on washers and nuts. Tighten the nuts firmly but not too tight.
With the help of another person, place the upright supports next to the front and back corners of the side frame base. While on its side, place two upright supports parallel to each other and connect them at the top with the side supports using bolts, washers and nuts. Repeat this process for the other side.
With assistance, lift the connected upright supports on each side one at a time. Connect the bottom of these supports to the frame base with bolts, washers and nuts. Then connect the top of the frame with the front and back top supports using the same parts as listed for the frame base. Go back and tighten all the bolts and nuts on the main frame before continuing on with the next section.
Insert the plate shafts into the holes at the bottom of the base frame. Slide on the rubber stoppers and the plates one at a time and then bolt the plate shafts to the top of the crossbars. Repeat this step for machines that have more than one set of stacked weights.
Attach the pulley cams with bolts, washers and nuts to the appropriate extensions of the crossbars. Then connect the cables to the pin shafts and slide them into the plate stacks. Now attach any bench or seat frames to the main frame using bolts, washers and nuts. Next, attach any back or seat pads to these frames using the ratchet and socket set to tighten the bolts and nuts.
Attach the handle bars to the ends of the cables using the "S" hook clips. Label each plate with the weight listed numerically from lightest to heaviest, going from top to bottom. Place the pin selectors in each stack. Test the movement of each exercise using a light weight.
