Product Summary

The Inspire FTX is the little brother to the FT2. This cable machine comes equipped with dual 165-pound weight stacks at a 2:1 ratio, so you’ll expect to feel 82.5 pounds of resistance on each stack. This is more than enough for a beginner or even intermediate exerciser. 

This machine does have a large footprint at 54 inches long, 40 inches wide, and 82 inches high so you’ll need a dedicated space for it, but the versatility it provides could be more than enough to warrant the space (and financial) investment. The FTX comes with a tricep rope, two D-handles, a dual hook curl bar, and a chin-dip belt. You can also purchase these attachments separately: bench, ab bar, straight bar, ankle strap, 5-pound add-on weights, and rubber D-handles.
