Nothing is perfect in this world also the German Masterpiece lacks in some qualities.
What isn’t so great?
This product is no doubt a master piece therefore it consumes a lot of time to get in shape during the assembly process. There is a big size guide with images which guide perfectly to assemble the machine but if you are technically sound you will assemble it in 1 hour but, it has been observed that in some cases it took nearly 3 hours to only get assembled.
Lack of Height Versatility
The fitness machine is designed perfectly for medium and above then medium height persons. The machine has many ergonomic features which makes it unmatched for tall heighted persons.
It has been equipped with a hydraulic resistance mechanism which has a drawback worldwide that the hydraulic mechanism looses resistance as the intensity of the workout increases, so it happens here also. But the good thing is that all the machine which uses these mechanism looses the resistance after 20 minutes but the Kettler Favorit machine stretches the resistance duration up to 50 minutes and also gives the option of different levels of resistance so you can increase the resistance as the time increases to make your workout perfect.
