Description: BodyMax CTX5 Multi Cable and Smith Machine

The BodyMax CTX5 Multi Cable and Smith Machine is a comprehensive, all-in-one piece of strength equipment, incorporating Smith machine, cable machine, power rack, and more to produce a one-stop-shop for all your strength training needs.

Smith machine in use


The CTX5 brings together three of the most fundamental pieces of gym equipment into one space-saving, cost-effective machine. The Smith machine is great for stability, as it can only move vertically, helping you keep good form as you lift, as well as allowing for more safety when training alone. The variety of exercises possible with a functional trainer is huge, and the continuous tension provides a greater challenge, and therefore greater results. The power rack is a classic piece of equipment, again popular for its diverse range of exercises possible, and the pull up bar, along with other attachments allow for bodyweight-based training and add even more variety to this powerful product. The commercial-grade, heavy gauge steel construction and reinforced welds make the CTX5 sturdy and durable, and the powder coating and anti-rust protection helps avoid scratches, dents, and wear, while anti-slip rubber feet keep the machine stable. The classic red and black BodyMax colourway will suit any home gym or commercial fitness studio.


The CTX5’s Smith machine features a beautifully-counterbalanced barbell, complete with diamond-cut, machined knurling and rated at 400kg, suiting advanced users and beginners alike. The bar is Olympic-sized, fitting Olympic, 2” weight plates, and comes with spring collars to keep plates safe and secure on the bar. You can adjust the height of the Smith machine to any of the 12 catches, accommodating a variety of user sizes and types of workout. Smooth, slick barbell travel feels great to use and helps you maximise your training.

functional trainer in use


Featuring 16 height positions, the dual pulley system is an extremely versatile component part of the CTX5. The high-tensile cables are rated at 910kg, meaning they are built to last, as are the dual fibreglass reinforced pulleys. Cable machines offer exercises that are designed to move with the natural movement of the body, which both maximises workout impact and feels comfortable for the user. Continuous tension means your muscles are working at all times during weight resistance workouts, increasing efficiency and helping you achieve the best results possible. The plate-loaded pulley system has a maximum weight rating of 200kg, and also comes equipped with spring collars to keep plates stable while you work out. The 1:1 cable ratio means you lift exactly the weight added to the machine.


The CTX5 can also be used for free weight training. Its heavy duty steel frame allows for all the versatility of a power rack, with included J-hooks and spotter arms. Adjust the J-hooks to a height that suits you, along the 16 height positions. Also adjustable are the spotter arms, which allow the user to train without a partner, so there’s no limit on your fitness journey.

pull-up bar in use


The CTX5 comes equipped with an in-built pull-up station, which can be used with a variety of grip types, allowing you to work different muscles and vary the difficulty. From wide grip to angled chin-ups, the pull-up station is extremely versatile. The rubber sleeves provide a comfortable, secure grip, and there’s even a ring mount which can be used for suspension training. The multi-grip pull-up station is rated at 350kg. Also built-in to the frame are storage pegs and slots for weight plates and barbells, which help keep your gym space tidy, safe, and saves time in your workouts. Attachments to enhance and vary your CTX5 include: a rotational core trainer attachment, barbell row, ab crunch attachment, lat pulldown bar, and a straight double-ended bar. These attachments add even more exercises to the already-versatile machine, and give you control over your training. A multi-grip dip station enables you to perform bodyweight dips, helping build chest, shoulders and triceps. For those seeking guidance or inspiration, a workout chart is fitted to the CTX5, featuring 18 different exercises.

  • Smith machine, J-hooks, and spotter bars – 400kg
  • Pull-up station – 350kg
  • Cable pulley – 200kg

bodymax ctx5
very impressed by my recently purchased bodymax ctx5, quality bit of kit, although was slightly damaged in transit, powerhouse fitness quickly responded and replaced all parts effected without a quibble, I would recommend to purchase equipment with this Company.

CTX5 2 months of use
Highly recommend the bodymax ctx5. Read the full review for a full picture. After some research, i went for Bodymax ctx5. There is no perfect machine so it comes down to having least inconviniences. Other machines had either not enough weight attached, or cables were in the way, or so many other bad design faults. I went in the shop next to Willesden Green tube station to check it out before buying online and i can say it is a very welcome advantage to see it in person, try it out etc. Chuck was great in the shop and on the phone. Same with the rest of the team. Now to the machine. There is only one thing i can complain about it. The weight holders have plastic caps and the paint on them started to wear already because of constant use of the weights. THey could`ve used metal caps like on the smith machine bar. The rest of the machine is perfect. Great strenght, very sturdy. placed on the barbell short holders 150kg and no issue. pulleys move well, no noticeble resistance. Smith machine is perfectly balanced. Easy to do chest press and any other excercise the machine can do. Totally recommend for a home gym. a bit pricey but it is a very good investment and you will get your moneys worth, especilly if like us, me and my wife use it. VERY IMPORTANT POINTS IF YOU BUY: 1.The cable row at the bottom middle is actyally 1:1, not 2:1 like the rest of the pulleys. I was told its 2:1 and used 200kg as i was using 110kg at the gym before, and couldn`t move it :)). SO yeah, that pulley is 2:1. 2. Buy heavy rubber mats to place the machine on. I bought 6 1sq metre from them, 4 you need for the machine and 2 i placed in front of it where i can do everything else. 3.When installing (and this should be in the manual) you will need more height then the machine measures. I was lucky that my garage was taller but i still strugled. THis is becaue, late in the asembly you need to put the smith machine counter weights in the frame in the back and they go down from the top so you need machine height+weight height. I think it`s best to put the weights in before you lift the frame up, but this is just my opinion and its not in the manual. Just saying you will need a lot of height. 4. Do not OVERTIGHTEN. it is said so many times and yes i did a bit on one side and it bent the frame a bit. not much but follow their instructions. 5. Make sure you use a suitable bench. if its too big or wide etc it wont fit. I was shown Bodymax PM121 Utility Bench in the shop for it and it is perfect fit, good for presses etc. 6. Delivery will be a pain! Luckly the driver was nice and explained. They lift it with a forklift in the depot, in the truck. When they come to your door they don`t have a forklift anymore. It is crazy big and heavy. and can`t be taken down. Me and the driver opened the box and moved the whole machine 1 piece at a time. it took about 45 minutes. This is a very bad delivery system and not fit for purpouse. THey are meant to leave it kerb side and they can`t do it lol. My driver was nice and not in a rush, good luck with other drivers. Customer service is great. Phone answered very fast, had 2 issues with my order and it took a bit of time to be resolved. Mostly because of transportation/supply. Can`t give 5 stars because of the delivery and the very slow delivery of defective parts.

I'm very happy with my purchase. Well built and looks great in my new home gym.

The best multifunction gym on the market
I honestly don’t think there is a better all in one machine for the price. I had to wait longer than expected for delivery but it was worth it. I was expecting 2 people to build however I managed to do this myself over 4 evenings and most of a full day. Take your time and study each instruction page carefully. Could’ve been easier if each part was numbered. Put counter weights in upright tubes for smith machine before putting it together as the ceiling may not be high enough. Recommend electric bolt tightener. Once built it’s very sturdy so you don’t have to bolt into ground. I’m amazed at how many exercises you can do with this machine. I also bought a few additional attachments like leg press attachment and a rope for the cable but other than that it’s perfect and will guide you on a bodybuilding journey for many years! Special thanks to Edinburgh team for helping me place the order :-)

Highly recommended
Can’t recommend this machine enough ! Makes training at home safer with the brake bars on the smith machine. Comes with a decent amount of attachments to aid training different muscle groups. Would allow a few evenings to put together though as a lot of nuts / bolts to do up ????. Would definitely buy again .

Amazing quality
Would recommend easy to set up

Ctx5 bodymax
Bought this as it looked really good for a good price, and it actually is really good, you need grease for good movement. Also do not attach the counter weights for the Smith machine bar, not needed. The Smith machine has such a smooth movement no grease is needed as its ball bearings, definitely worth the cash.

great quality and price, would highly recommend

The service was fantastic, helped me process my order and made me feel secure with my choice. Could not be happier with my purchase

Superb quality product and service, definitely recommend!
