  • It should be extremely simple to assemble and simple to install. This is a big one and in fact this is the main top feature you should keep in mind while evaluating various door gyms. During our research we found many with fancy looking attachments, complicated assembly instructions etc but simple is simple and it is better if we keep the fitness gadgets also simple.
  • Iron is the preferred construction choice as it is sturdy and durable. While researching we found some door gyms without any polish but it is better to look for one which is coated with a good paint as final product look will be better if there is a good paint finish. So avoid plastic door gyms and go for the iron door gyms.
  • Customer Support is a key while buying an item and we suggest to look for a company which is there for you when you need them.

So overall our top one suggestion is to go for an iron door gym with no complex setups. It needs to be simple to assemble and simple to install.
