The gym was packaged very well. It was fun to put together. The instructions started in a lot of detail, but after finishing the first two stations suddenly became vague and had lots of errors. That didn't cause too much trouble however because by then I had the general idea of what was intended.
There were two particular issues I had with the assembly. First it comes in 8 large boxes. Without adequate room to open all the boxes in advance, it becomes a guessing game which box each of the pieces you are currently looking for is in. The boxes are numbered and for the most part the assembly progresses through the boxes in order, but it would be very helpful if the instructions listed the contents of each box.
Second, I was lucky because I have 9 foot basement ceilings but one of the weight stack shrouds required the full 9 feet with some bending to get in place. Otherwise it would have required removing all the weights from the standing station and removing the station from the rest of the assembly to get the shroud in place.
Other than those two issues, everything fit together very well, operates smoothly and quietly, and looks good. So far we're very happy with it.
