Rep Fitness PR-5000 Review
The Rep Fitness PR-5000 is a wonderful power rack for the home gym owner. This Rep Fitness PR-5000 Review video will discuss the rack’s pros and cons. I’ll also share some of the mistakes I made in building my PR-5000 and attachments that I’ll be adding to better fit my needs.

The rack is available at 80 and 93 inches tall. I went with 93 inches, but at 6’2″ and a standard pull-up bar, this setup was not tall enough to allow me to perform full range of motion movements like kipping pull-ups. So, I had to go back and purchase a multi-grip pull-up bar that elevated my pull-up position another 3 inches so that my feet would not hit the ground during hanging movements.
The PR-5000 is available in 16, 30, and 41-inch depths with additional uprights potentially being added if you choose the weight storage option. I wanted to minimize my rack’s footprint while still having enough internal spacing to lift inside the rack. The 30-inch depth is perfect for my needs.
I love the color options available for the PR-5000. I knew ordering white would result in scuffs, and that has happened pretty quickly. If I were ordering as just a home gym rack, I’d order black. But since I film so much content and have dark walls, the white upright gives great contrast in my videos.
The PR-5000 has 1″ holes spaced every 2″, which has worked well for my needs. I do LOVE that the rack has lasered numbers on every hole, making adjustments of J-cups and safety bars so much easier.
Attachments for the Rep Fitness PR-5000
I chose the following PR-5000 attachments:
- Pin & Pipe Safety Bars – but I wish that I had gone with flip-down safeties
- Dip Bar – great
- Leg Rollers – love them
- Landmine – opted not to, as I love my Ab Mat Barbell Bomb
- Band pegs – great
- Lat pulldown & Iso Arms I decided against as these aren’t used much in my training
- Belt Squat attachment – not purchased as I love my Squat Max MD Belt Squat
