TuffStuff Muscle 3 Home Gym

TuffStuff Original LogoIn 1991, Sherman Grider’s Task Industries Inc. introduced the TuffStuff brand name.  TuffStuff became the fitness industry’s first free weight benches and machines painted in white and black combination. TuffStuff also introduced the first machines with adjustable cams and pull-pins on all adjustments.  The TuffStuff product line become an overnight sensation, and set many of the industry’s standards still in place today.

In the same year, TuffStuff was awarded the contract by the City of Los Angeles to install commercial free weight benches at the world famous Muscle Beach outdoor gym in Venice, California.

Then in 1993, Task Industries introduced the TuffStuff Muscle 1 Home Gym.  The Muscle-1 was the first home gym to feature an A-frame press bar, and utilize a dual pulley cable system.  It included a 200lb. weight stack with two training stations.

The success of the Muscle 1 lead to the revamped TuffStuff Muscle 3 Home Gym in 1994.  The Muscle 3 included the same core structure as the Muscle 1, but featured an improved cable system, and a low pulley on the side of the machine.  A vertical knee raise (VKR) and leg press were also available as optional attachments.

On one station, users could use the improved press bar for chest exercises.  Leverage the overhead pulley for lat pulldowns.  Or strengthen quadricep muscles with the leg extension.  While the other station featured a pectoral fly, also known as a “Pec Deck”.  The Muscle 3 Home Gym was the second residential strength training machine (behind the Muscle 1) to include a Pec Deck attachment.
