Hammer Strength Vs Muscle D Power Leverage Line

When deciding on the best strength equipment for your gym, it’s natural to compare all your options. Our Power Leverage Line is a favorite with athletic sports clubs and strength training facilities around the world. We’re sometimes asked how it stacks up against other manufacturers’ products, such as Hammer Strength by Life Fitness. In this article, we’ll run through the key differences between the two ranges, so you can decide for yourself which is best-suited to your needs.

Sturdy Uniframe Bases

Our Power Leverage Line utilizes a consistent uniframe base across the entire range. Unlike the varied and inconsistent bases used on Hammer Strength, the uniframe base only requires minimal nuts and bolts to attach it together. This makes it more stable, durable, and easier to clean too. This also ensures assembly is quicker and simpler, whilst delivering a sleek look without any unnecessary clutter.

Easy Adjustments

Easy adjustments are crucial for a positive exercise experience. If people find machines difficult to adjust, then more often than not they’ll simply give up and move on. It’s therefore crucial that equipment can be easily customized to their height, size, or weight on the go. At Muscle D Fitness we design our products with exercisers in mind, which is why our pneumatic lift seats can be adjusted while sitting in them. This is something that many other manufacturers have failed to incorporate into their products, including Life Fitness. Hammer Strength equipment incorporates an old rack and pinion system which requires users to get off in order to make adjustments. There is also a tendency for the seats to rattle down while being adjusted.

Stable Construction Axels & Bearings

We consider the smallest details when designing our strength ranges. The axles and pillow block bearings on the Power Leverage Line are supported by 1/3 inch thick metal brackets. This minimizes any side to side movement and ensures maximal stability. However, Hammer Strength products feature smaller axles and pillow block bearings that are attached to side walls of the tubing (instead of being fully supported by brackets).

Consistent Pre-Stretch Experience

Prestretch is something that varies greatly between the Power Leverage Line and Hammer strength. On the latter, the level of prestretch on some machines is dependent on the user’s torso thickness. However, Muscle D Fitness products deliver a consistently high standard of prestretch across the entire range to ensure full muscular development.

Knee Stability Pads

Knee stability pads may be a seemingly small detail on strength equipment, but they can be a source of frustration for many exercisers. On Hammer Strength products, the knee stability pads that hold the upper legs down during exercise are cumbersome to adjust. However, Muscle D Fitness products include knee stability pads that are easily adjustable, so users feel securely held down in place.


Price is a key consideration when purchasing strength equipment, so you’ll be pleased to know that Muscle D Fitness equipment costs significantly less than Hammer Strength. In many cases, our prices are 10-30% lower, enabling you to reinvest the savings into other areas of your business. Unlike Life Fitness, we also shop around to find the most economical freight shipping rates for our customers. This further decreases the overall cost in comparison to Hammer Strength products.

Our Power Leverage Line was designed with exercisers in mind and features keen attention to detail. It’s a rugged and durable range of plate-loaded products, that are all produced with performance at heart. Best of all, it’s available at a more competitive price than other products on the market, so you can make the most of your investment dollars.
