Little More About IQI
IQI is a privately owned company that realises its success and great reputation depends wholly on whether their customers are happy or not. The company’s name stands for Innovation Quality Inspiration and these are three qualities that can easily be applied to any of their cutting edge and user-friendly exercise and health products and equipment. The Power Tower is no different and you can really tell that a lot of thought and expertise has gone into the creation of this dip station. As this is quite a bit more expensive than many of the other dip stations we have reviewed for this site, you may be wondering why you should spend the extra money. In the following article, we hope we can show you why.

More Than Just A Simple Dip Station
Although dip stations are perfect for adding quick and effective exercises to your day to day life, whether you workout already or not, if you are wanting to have a truly diverse routine you may want to consider the Power Tower. It combines a press bar, pull up bar and dip station into one single piece of equipment. You can even perform vertical knee raise. The IQI Power Tower can therefore be used to perform exercises that will build and tone muscle groups such as your core, abdominal, shoulder, chest, biceps and triceps.
We feel it would be very foolish to purchase a piece of home gym equipment just on the basis of what we or even the manufacturer said. You really need another, more biased opinion to give you a more complete story of what it is like to own and use apparatus such as the IQI Power Tower Dip Station.
When looking to Amazon UK then, it is clear that there had been something of a mixed reception among people who have purchased this particular dip station. Although it still has a relatively high average of 4.1 stars out of 5, 4 of the 19 people who left reviews awarded it a 3 star rating or less. While it is true that you should not dwell on just the negative comments, you should not just look at the incredibly positive reviews.
There is a lot of disagreements with some customers commenting that it is not nearly stable or robust and durable enough and others saying that it is. Similarly many people have commented that it does require some of your own tools to put it together in quicker time. You need to think carefully about whether the positives are enough for you to part with your cash with or whether the negatives are just too off-putting.
As it is a considerable investment, we would always advise that you think carefully before purchasing this Power Tower dip Station. From what we have seen and read despite its high price tag, it offers good value.
