    I was nervous about ordering this bench given the complete absence of reviews, but I’m very glad I did. This flat bench is an absolute workhorse, and compares favorably to more expensive competition. As a plus, the visual branding is much more refined and subdued than most options at this price point, so it ends up having a premium feel even when compared to similar models.

    Probably the best flat bench on the market and you should not hesitate to buy. You won’t find another flat bench this good for this price point. You probably won’t find a better flat bench at all. The padding is wide, grippy, and firm, but not too firm. The bench is low enough to use leg drive, especially if your short like me. The tools provided don’t work well, so have a tool set handy. Griffin fitness nailed it with this bench.

    Unbelievable quality for the price point. I’d say aesthetically the logo is more pleasing to the eyes than the Titan and Rep flat benches. The pad does not feel cheap at all. The single post in the front makes it easy to stack your feet in any position close or wide. It is hefty but not too heavy. If you are hesitating, do not hesitate no longer. This bench comes at highly recommended. 5/5 quality and customer service.

    Putting together a home gym for the first time and finding quality products in stock for a good price was proving difficult. When I came across this company I was unsure but decided to give them a try. This bench has turned out to be amazing. The quality of the parts and ease of assembly was the first hint that it was well worth the price. This bench is sturdy and built solid and I feel that the value you get from it is amazing. The style like others said is also a plus. The logo and branding is nice and subtle. If you are on the fence definitely give them a try you won’t regret it. I cant wait to see where this company goes and I will definitely be purchasing from them in the future.

    Love the bench, and love the price. I have an elite fts bench, and a rogue flat bench to train on, but the griffin flat bench will be my daily trainer. Build solid and love the single post front footing and the wheels. It’s a deal!

    Great product. Price point is irrelevant here as this product is up there with all other competition benches I have used. Tolerances are spot on, came in quick time, all correct hardware, and super easy instructions. Bench is sturdy and ready to go once built. Really happy I ordered mine, I wouldn’t be surprised if they sell out quick! Great product. A+

    Excellent bench for a great price. It is easy to build, light but sturdy and great grip. I will recommend this bench to all who lift.

    Very well built, works as it should/no slipping on it, shipping was quick, the price is fantastic, it looks great…This is definitely one of those unicorn products that hits all the requirements out of the park IMO.

    Really like my competition flat bench. Nice nice design, Didn’t know how much I would like the wheels and handle only worked out on it once but love it. Had to give 5 stars based on solid construction and design.

    I love this bench. There is no way to beat the value Griffin has delivered here. I almost pulled the trigger on a Rogue bench that would have totaled over $500. The REP FB-5000 bench has been sold out and its aesthetic never really checked the box for me as weird as that sounds. Frankly, this bench knocks that bench out of the park for me.

    Anyway, Griffin’s flat bench is low profile but has attention to detail (e.g. the laser cut Griffin logos + horizontal handle) that keeps it from being boring. Its functionality is even better. The steel is strong and effective and the padding is feels awesome! For those who want it to be stable when standing, just glue/drill two 2 inch blocks of wood together and set it under the square part that’s directly under the pad. Selfishly, it gives my DIY calf block more functionality! So that’s one thing that can be improved: if the center tube can extend a few inches more to make standing the bench up easier. Another thing (insanely minor) is if the handle can be centered with the center tube instead of aligned with the right side as well since I find my left leg hitting it every now and then when setting up my feet (thinking of something similar to Vulcan’s 3×3 Prime flat bench’s trapezoidal handle design).

    Regardless, these aren’t even complaints, just suggestions. As it stands, this bench is basically perfect and Griffin’s customer service, interaction with its customers/community and honesty and transparency about restock timing and new product releases makes it such a great company to work with. That alone should sell you on their products but nope, they make top-notch items to outfit your gym with as well.
