Differences

The adjustable weight benches have different unit weights

  • The FLYBIRD weighs 31.8lbs, the Fitness Reality is 35lbs, while the X-Class is a much more substantial 55.6lbs.

All three adjustable weight benches have different dimensions

  • The FLYBIRD adjustable weight bench has a length of 49.2”, a width of 15.7”, and a height of 44.5”.
  • The Fitness Reality 1000 is 59” long, 23.5” wide, and 48.5” high.
  • The Fitness Reality X-Class adjustable weight bench has a length of 64”, a width of 28.8”, and a height of 35”.

Maximum weight capacities differ 

  • The maximum weight capacity of the FLYBIRD is 620lbs, the X-Class has a higher limit of 650lbs, but the heavyweight contender here is the Fitness Reality 1000 at 800lbs. All weight capacities include the user’s body weight and weights.

Maximum user height recommendations vary between the benches

  • The FLYBIRD can accommodate a maximum height of up to 6’2”, while both Fitness Reality benches can cater to those who have a height of up to 6’4”.

All three adjustable weight benches have a different foam pad thickness

  • The FLYBIRD has a 2” foam pad, while the Fitness Reality X-Class has a slightly thicker 2.5” foam pad. The Fitness Reality 1000 makes do with a 1.75″ thick pad.

The adjustable weight benches all have different incline/decline positions

  • The FLYBIRD has seven back pad positions and three seat positions.
  • The Fitness Reality 1000 offers 12 Positions, from 20 degree decline to 80 degree incline.
  • The Fitness Reality X-Class has one flat, three decline adjustments, and 14 thigh support cushion height adjustments.

One bench is non-foldable

  • The Fitness Reality X-Class is not foldable, while the FLYBIRD folds with folded dimensions of 30” length, 16” width, and 9” height. The Fitness Reality 1000 folds down to 51″ L x 23.5″ W x 9″ H when not in use.

All three adjustable weight benches have different warranties

  • The FLYBIRD has a 1-year warranty for the frame, and 30 days for the foam. The Fitness Reality X-Class has a 10-year warranty for the frame, three years for parts, and two years for wearable parts. Strangely, the 1000 bench from the same manufacturer only has a 1-year warranty.

Conclusion

The FLYBIRD and Fitness Reality X-Class are both reliable choices if you are looking for a lightweight foldable bench. However, if you are after a stronger, more substantial bench, capable of carrying a higher capacity (including the weights you are working with), the Fitness Reality 1000 is the clear winner.
