REP PR-1000 Power Rack

The REP PR-1000 Power Rack is a budget-friendly no-frills rack. It’s ideally suited for beginner or recreational lifters, but with a 700lb capacity, it can also be used by advanced lifters on a budget. The rack is constructed with 2×2 steel and it offers 1″ holes.

This PR-1000 differs from the slightly less expensive PR-1100 in that it only comes in black, it has two pull-up bars instead of one, it offers more hole options, and it has weight storage posts on the base.

Read more below.


Features & Highlights

  • Steel Size – The PR-1000 is built using 2×2 steel and it’s assembled with a bolt-together design. This rack is rated to 700lb, which is plenty for most, but 2×2 does lag behind 2×3 and 3×3 in terms of capacity and attachment options.
  • 4-Post Design – As a 4-post rack, you’ll save some space and money compared to a 6-post rack. With most 4-post racks, plate storage on the back uprights can be tricky. With the PR-1000, there are no side holes so plate storage isn’t possible unless you buy the optional weight storage add-on. With the standard setup, however, there are two vertical posts on the back of the base that can be used for plate storage. This not only helps organize your plates, but it creates stability in the rack.
  • Hole/Hardware Sizing – This rack uses 1″ hardware, which is a common hole size. The rack will accommodate all of REP’s 1000-Series Attachments as well as some from other companies (read more in the compatibility section below).
  • Hole Spacing – The PR-1000 utilizes 2″ hole spacing throughout the rack, which is a common hole spacing. This rack does not offer Westside hole spacing through the bench zone.
  • Exterior Rack Dimensions – This rack is space-friendly with a total footprint of 58″ wide, 48″ deep, and 83″ tall. The majority of the rack is only 48″ wide, but the rear base extends 10″ further for structural stability and plate storage. In terms of the uprights themselves, the dimensions are 30″ deep and 48″ wide. If you’re training in a low-ceiling room, the 83″ height will likely appeal to you.
  • Interior Rack Dimensions – The interior lifting area measures 26″ deep. While this is enough room to safely lift in, some users may find it to be too cramped.
  • Safety Options – This rack includes chrome-coated pipe safeties that extend off the front of the rack to serve as extra J-cups if needed. It does not offer upgrade options like flip-down safeties or safety straps.
  • No Color Options – One of the downsides to the PR-1000 is that it only comes in standard black powder coat. If you want something with color, you’ll need to look at the PR-1100 or upgrade to a higher-lever rack like the PR-4000 or PR-5000v2.
  • Laser-Cut Numbers – The rack includes laser-cut numbering every 5th hole.
  • Bolt-Down Not Required – With the PR-1000, you do not need to bolt it to the ground or to a platform given its rear support.

What’s Included in the Box

The PR-1000 includes several pieces as standard:

  • (2) Standard J-Cups
  • (2) Pipe Safeties
  • (1) 2″ Diameter Pull-Up Bar
  • (1) 1.25″ Diameter Pull-Up Bar
  • (4) 81″ Uprights (83″ Total Height)
  • (2) 26″ Crossmembers
  • (1) Base including rear support with 2 storage posts

Attachment Compatibility

The PR-1000 Power Rack is constructed with 2×2 steel and 1″ hardware, which is compatible with REP’s 1000-Series Attachments.

Some attachments that I think are worthy of consideration include the Lat/Low Row Attachment, the Landmine, and the Dip Station.

The Lat/Low row allows you to perform cable movements off the back of the rack, the landmine opens up additional barbell movements, and the dip station allows you to perform various-width dips using the safeties.

As for attachment compatibility outside of REP Fitness, one notable place to look is Titan Fitness.


What They’re Saying at REP Fitness

The REP PR-1000 Power Rack receives excellent feedback from users. With an average rating of 5/5, here are some of the things people have said at repfitness.com.

Positive

  • “I have this rack for a few months now. Easy to assemble (also purchased the lat machine) alone and was using within a couple of hours. The rack gets used almost daily with barbells, TRX and bands. I am very happy with this purchase and recommend. I have 300# in bumper plates and this rack handles is all easily.”
  • “I purchased this rack about 7 months ago and i have to admit, i didn’t think it’d hold much value considering the low price. It really is a nice surprise to say i think this rack holds up in quality, looks, functionality as some of the far more expensive racks out there. (For about a 1/3 of the price)”
  • “Very economical and easy to assemble with the add-on’s providing value and making it an awesome home gym.”
  • “This is a solid, functional, good looking rack. It’s stable enough to handle the (currently) moderate amount of weights I lift, without a wobble or any other problem.”
  • “This rack does everything I need. I have a small room in my basement that I needed a compact rack for and this fit the bill. Just small enough for my space while still providing all the functionality I wanted.”
  • “This is a really stable rack, i would say the best value out there and i love the fact that a rack at this price point can be upgraded with a cable system in the future at a great entry point.”

Critical

  • “Feels a little shaky side to side for anybody using the dip handles with it.”
