Use your body's own resistance to create maximum impact where it counts: pecs, biceps, abs, and obliques. The portable Multi-Function Home Gym Bar goes anywhere! It's a great foundation for any training regimen.
Forget the gimmicks and build a powerful physique with this Everlast multifunction chinning bar--one of the tried-and-true cornerstones of fitness. A chinning bar uses your body's own resistance to create maximum impact where it counts most, such as the pecs, biceps, abs, and obliques. The multifunction bar sets up pretty much anywhere, including in a doorway, against a wall, or on the ground. When installed in the doorway, the chinning bar lets you perform pull-ups and chin-ups, so you can create a strong back and muscular biceps in no time. When on the ground, the bar's comfort grips make pushups more effective than ever, helping you build a strong, defined chest and sculpted triceps. Finally, you can rest the bar against a wall, where it holds your feet for sit-ups and other ab work. And best of all for people who want a versatile workout, the bar offers multiple grip positions that allow you to work muscles from several different angles. A great foundation for any training regimen, the Everlast multifunction chinning bar adjusts to fit doorways up to 32 inches across.

works like a charm Bought this for my new work out routine to include with the P90X, and it works great! fits very solidly in my door frame, and hasnt fallen off or anything yet, very sturdy design, a good name brand and a pretty good price as well...more info
Does the job Excellent chinning bar. The screws were a bit difficult to manage, but the bar was still relatively easy to assemble. Assembly did not take more than 20 minutes. It is a bit tricky to find the right doorway for situps but pushups and pull ups are a treat especially when you use the different hand positions that are available to you. You are able to target different muscles just by changing hand positions. Great product....more info
Great Product Very satisfied with this product. I've been using it daily for about three months now. Durable, and does what it says. I've very happy that I was able to get a chinup bar without having to drill holes in my metal door frames. Make sure that you measure your door before you buy it, though, if it's too small, it might not fit....more info
You have got to be kidding me Got this thing out of the box, tried to put it together. I could not figure out why there seemed to be two inches of play in the four main screws that hold the handles / door support to the main bar. From reading on here, it looks like they are basically too long! THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE CORRECT ASSEMBLY HARDWARE. China is a big place, you'd think Everlast could find a manufacturer that could figure those things out. Or maybe there was some kind of Spinal Tap thing going on with the screw lengths. Whatever, save your money, anything else on the market has got to be better than this. ...more info
The bolts are fine, use a wrench! Everyone talks about the bar coming with the wrong bolts because if you try to assemble the bar with your fingers the nuts don't tighten all the way. There's a lining of blue plastic inside the nuts that help them stay in place when tightened with a wrench, but yes they will stop you if you try to put them on with your fingers. Admittedly, the instructions should have either made this clearer or come with a wrench tool.
Once assembled, the thing works great! Everyone else who complains about the "substandard" nature of the product seems not to understand how all of these door-frame chin-up bars work. This one is arguably as good as the P90X bar (depending on your grip style) for about 1/3rd of the cost, and it is way better than the other door-frame bars that cost $10-20 more.
As long as you own a wrench and a standard door-frame, I can see no reason to buy any other chin-up bar.
Excellent choice I just recently purchased the P90X workout program and it requires a chin up bar. The Everlast bar is perfect. It fits nicely in the doorway and is very strong. ...more info
Decent but a littly messy Assembling this product requires tools. We couldn't use a regular wrench because the bolts are an awkward size and instead had to use an adjustable ratchet.
The wooden piece that props up against the top of the door has an abrasive strip of sandpaper (??) on it. This gets worn very easily - I'm 220lb and only did 2 sets and there is already a place where it scratched a bit.
The product works best on doors and door frames with moldings, because they don't leave much room for it to slip. The problem with this is that they will dent and scratch up your frames. So I'd recommend attaching your own bar in the basement or somewhere else in your house over using this product if you own your home....more info
Great exercise tool! Great tool: well designed, light and portable. Would recommend to any exercise aficionado not willing to spend hundreds on gym membership. Having this thing and a spring expander one can carry a gym in his business suitcase or vacation duffel-bag anywhere in the world....more info
Sturdy and doesn't damage the doorframe. We've had this for many months now and it is as solid as in the beginning. It was easy to assemble and hasn't left any marks on the door frame. We really like the versatility but it really is mainly used for chin-ups....more info
Not long enough. Seems like good quality. However, it's only good for up to 32" doors. In a lot of areas, code for new homes requires 36" doors so that wheelchairs fit through them. This bar (and all of the others I've looked at) falls short....more info
Everlast multi function chinning bar This is a great product that will support a lot of weight. I weigh about 250 pounds and it holds me easily. The only con is that it is not made for wide grip pull-ups. However, I highly recommend this product....more info
It's not a perfect fit. I'm happy with product. It's fits in doorway. Not perfectly, but it does what is designed to do.
nice and sturdy This chin up bar works perfect for me. It goes on easy and comes off easy, but it stays up when it is supposed to. I weight 300 lbs and it holds me just fine....more info
Good product. Takes a little faith to trust it. I've been using this for a couple of months now and works well. Putting it together was fairly simple. Feels a little flimsy at first but I was much more confidant once I understood the physics of this thing. And also what can you expect for something that slips around your door jam, that can be installed in 5 seconds flat. Now if they could only make the pull-ups easier then I'd give it 5 stars. Peace....more info
Functional, but there might be better Very easy assembly, it took ten minutes. That included getting my socket set. It did & will scratch the paint above the door. Another problems is that it almost did not fit in my door way. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE LESS THAN A 36" DOOR. It did dent my door frame as well. I had no problems as far as stability during the pull-ups. It seems stong enough for a while. I hung this in a doorway in my chiropractic office and it will get overused, so I hope it holds up for a while....more info
Does good job with chin up This product does a great job with chin up exercise, but it doesn't do well with situp like it advertised at all. I have carpeted floor, which is not firm enough for the bar to leverage against during situp. I haven't try it on a hard floor to see if it work there or not, but I doubt it will. The bar is strong and sturdy once all screw is in place and tighten. The bar does need to have a doorframe header to work properly, I would not just depend on the leverage wood bar and its sandpaper to hold by itself. The bar size is not adjustable, so it will only fit certain size doorway only. The soft grip is nice and comfort as well. Overall it does chin up bar function really well without having to screw the doorframe, but does not work with doing situp....more info
Very strong and reliable I recently purchased this item from Amazon and received the item in 3 days. Good job Amazon! The chin up bar is a little hard to assemble because the nuts provided were really tight and it's only possible to screw them with the help of some tools. Other than that, I think for the price, this bar is worth every penny. Bear in mind that the sandpaper on the wooden support does scrape off the paint on my wall. What I did was put a tape on the wall to minimize friction. ...more info
who needs a gym? it's been about a year since i bought this bar, but i still use it almost every day.
there are countless maneuvers available with this bar, which is what makes it so useful! it attaches to almost any door, with little to no damage!
better bargain than anything available in the chinning bar market....more info
Awful product Took way too long to assemble, screws aren't the right size.
Once I finally got it together, it didn't work on my door frame.
Apparently made for door that are very deep, the top part couldn't actually grip onto anything and I fell on my butt.
Does what it's supposed to Fundamentally this product does what its supposed to. I had read several negative comments about the assembly; while the instructions are not crystal clear it was reasonably straightforward. An improvement might be to include wrenches but pliars and a socket set put it together fine.
As stated it works on most door frames. I have one doorway in my house that is too wide for the bar so measure before you buy.
I was a little tentative on the first use but it holds my weight (210 lbs) no problem. In my mind it is the solution I was looking for.
The only real negative is that it has marked my door frame (as mentioned by other reviewers). It 'dented' the wood and scraped some paint off during the first use. Since then I always put some extra cushioning, like a towel, behind the contact points on the front side and it seems fine. It's a little extra hassle but nothing that upsets me too much. My advice is to add some extra cushioning in visible contact points....more info
DO NOT BUY! This is a terrible product. A piece of junk. The assembly parts do not work properly, I had to go and buy new nuts and bolts and upon assembly the fixtures don't align to grip the door post - lost money on rubbish, have to throw away....more info
Worthless The "self-locking" screws result in about 2 inches of play and won't hold the contraption together. Either the box is missing tools, or contains the wrong screws. They should have provided normal screws for all 6 bolts. I am returning this thing back to Big 5 tomorrow.
Assembly problems are a recurrent complaint for this item....more info
Great bar I looked at several different chinning bars and this seemed to be the best for the money. I've owned it now for two weeks with no disappointments. It came with all the necessary bolts, nuts, and washers. The directions are very simple if you have any experience with reading/looking at pictures. Be sure to tighten bolts with tools (not your hands as others seem to have tried). The only caveat is that the bar doesn't fit all door frames. I tried 3 different doors in my apt. before I found one that fit, but as long as you have several door options you should be just fine. Also you should put some type of clothe between the bar and frame to avoid potential scratching/denting. Highly recommended!...more info
Awesome piece of equipment! This chin-up bar is easy to assemble and super easy to "install". It comes with optional wall anchors, but I love its convenient design that allows me to use it in any doorway....more info
Faulty mounting I did some research on pull-up bars through other customer reviews, and the Everlast bar had the fewest negative reviews (that's not saying much). Many of the negative customer reviews on Everlast were because the customers had old doorways and the bar didn't work for them. I live in a new house, so I figured that I wouldn't have a problem with the door size.
The pull-up bar was straightforward to assemble, but I must admit that I spent awhile trying to figure out how it was mounted on the doorway. After looking at the picture and trying out different ways of mounting the bar, I finally realized that the bar just mounted on the doorframe, and had nothing to do with the door itself. The reason it took so long for me to figure that out was that it doesn't look safe or secure. There's a tiny sand-paper-like band on the wooden bracket that's supposed to hold it in place on one side of the doorframe, but that's a joke. I only weigh 165 pounds, and after three normal pullups, the whole contraption fell, and me with it. Most of the sand-paper tape came off the wooden bracket, showing how precarious the whole doorframe mounting idea was in the first place.
I'll just have to find a way to mount this thing on the wall, the doorway frame mounting idea is a joke!...more info
Renters beware As mentioned in other reviews, the nuts were dificult to thread onto the bolts. I had to use two wrenches to assemble it. I tried it in four different doorframes. It didn't fit in three, and it damaged the paint on all of them. On the only door it fit, I was afraid it would tear off the trim....more info
False advertising: Multi Function is a lie Just got this item. did a pull up or 2 to see if it holds me...so far so good. I don't need a tool to do push ups. Now to test the 2nd reason I bought this thing: sit ups. I wanted something that holds my feet down while I do sit ups (as advertised in the picture with the dorky haired dude right?) This is the point you realize you've been had. If anyone knows how to make this work (the sit -up part), I'm golden with this product, if not, lying to a customer PISSES ME OFF!
(Please comment if you know how to make this bar hold your feet down whilst doing sit ups...more info
pull up chin bar save your money. won't fit but certain doorways. I am about 190 pounds and when I found the doorway that fit, it cracked the drywall first pull up if it slips, which it does, better have health insurance if you want to buy one anyway, send me an email we can make a deal on a very very slightly used one....more info
Good as any. All the parts were there. Fairly easy to put together. One odd thing was the bolts were metric while the nut was 7/16 imperial; not the threading - just what I had to use to tighten them.
Even with the padding, it will most likely leave an indention in your door frame. Looking at the cantilever design of the other manufacturers, I suspect they all would. I have had it for a few weeks now, and it hasn't slipped off which is something I read on reviews of other manufacturers. It's probably better than average in terms of value for price. The online store I bought this from sent me the wrong product for a soldier at GTMO, then would not even express ship the correct product. Not a huge deal, but not good customer service....more info
Terrible This Cheap knock off slid down from the door frame and almost broke my nose. There was blood involved. I only weigh 160lbs. It doesn't do what its supposed to do and that's sad since its such a simple concept. When I showed it to a friend who has something similar she was shocked by the terrible materials used for this thing. It feels cheap and flimsy when you take it out and i should have known then not to put all my weight into it. If you don't want a nose job then please try and find something like this but not this.
Awesome workout tool I bought this bar for my husband. We live in a small apartment and he is a workout buff at 57 years old and he loves it. It was a snap to assemble and is easy to put up & take down. He is very happy with it. He bought me a computer in return=-)...more info
Good - but the loose screws confuse you. The product is really good. Strong, sturdy and very comfortable to use. Works with most doorframes. My only useable doorframe is a bit low - so i have to fold my legs upwards to do my pull-ups, but it is still fine.
While installing it - you may get confused, the screw are bigger than they should be - so the whole frame (parts put together) will be loose. Not sure if this is the way it was originally designed, but it does confuse you if you could have possibly got a defective piece. This however does not affect your workout in any way once you mount it. Overall - a good product - worth the money....more info
Pretty Decent Setup Pro's - Pretty sturdy. I'm about 185 and find that this thing doesn't feel like it will snap in two. Easy to assemble.
Con's - The 'flat bar' that goes through the doorframe and provides the resistance against the opposite wall is terrible. It came with sandpaper on it to hold it to the wall! I mean say goodbye to that nice paint on the wall. I placed a 1/8" piece of same sized gum rubber over the sandpaper to go between it and the wall which does the trick.
The foam padding that rests on either side of the doorframe basically starts to tear after a week. They should have used a much more solid rubber based material. Same might eventually happen to the areas your hands grip, but have only used it for 2 weeks so far.
For what it is and does, its an acceptable product for the money. It seems that it will hold up a bit better than some of it's counterparts. Have fun doing chin-ups and pull-ups! They are my favorite exercise...NOT....more info
Gets the Job Done I have had the bar for about 2 months. It a little while to get the pieces together maybe 30min or an hour. The wooden bar will nick your paint but nothing a little touch up paint won't fix. My only suggestion is the two bars that go on the door, put a piece of cardboard or something similar between the trim and the bar. If not it will dent the jamb and leave a black mark from the bar....more info
Waste of money and time Wrong hardware and will damage your wall! It is a complete waste of time, look for some other bar. I returned mine and ordered the Iron Gym Bar. Easier to put together and works perfect!
Great for real short people There's a reason the entire leg of the model is not shown on the ads. In order to use this on the average door ,you legs must be constantly bent at a 45 degree angle to keep them off the ground . ...more info
great product. given me no problems at all. just made sure your doorway has space on both sides for the bar to stick out. ...more info
Works great for me Despite some of the negative reviews I ordered this bar anyway. It took me about 10 minutes to put it together, without instructions. Those having trouble must be missing a few brain cells.
The quality is good for the price. Not the greatest, but it holds my weight (180 lbs.) just fine, without feeling like it's going to come apart.
Having the bar sitting in my doorway is great; Every time I walk by I do 4 chin ups. It's so convenient that you get a workout without thinking about it. It's motivated me to get back into the gym and I've already seen a nice improvement. Using it for deeper push ups is great too. After using it for a week you'll almost double regular push ups. ...more info
Terrible Product It's a nice idea and I would say the variety that they try to emphasize is appreciated, but the workmanship and actuality of maintaining a pull up bar that can hold your weight simply with friction and the reversion of your weight is horribly done, sandpaper came off after only a few tries. ...more info
No problems - big arms Im not sure what all these people are talking about with "hard to setup this and that". The directions were simple and I put it together and was using it within 30 minutes. I dont/havent gotten any tools so this unit is not together right, however the bolts and everything still holds under my weight (178 lbs). Soild unit, Im impressed....more info
