Home exercise equipment like the Weider X-Factor and the Tower 200 both allow fitness enthusiasts to work out in the comfort of their homes. The Weider X-Factor and the Tower 200 can both be used to do most of the exercises that you would perform at the gym on a cable tower. The differences are in the design, quality and price.

Tone At Home

The Weider X-Factor and the Tower 200 both come with the same equipment. They each come with two handles, two ankle straps, workout DVDs and even exercise charts to help guide you through your workouts. The Weider X-Factor even provides you with an eight-week nutrition plan, which the Tower 200 does not. They both create tension with a system of three individual exercise bands that work together. The Weider X-Factor has up to 210 pounds of tension, while the Tower 200 has 200 pounds.

Quality

The X-Factor comes with a lifetime manufacturers warranty against defects to the equipment. The Tower 200 does not. Each attaches to any standard door by clipping on to the top and bottom of the door securely. The X-Factor's design is a lot wider than the Tower 200 which is important especially if you are a larger individual. The Tower 200's frame is made of steel, which could harm your door; the X-Factor is not made of steel.
