The PR-5000 is a heavy-duty, highly customizable power rack that you’ll never need to upgrade. The rack is tough, made with 3x3” 11-gauge steel with a 1,000lbs rackable capacity. It has 2” hole spacing throughout with 1” pinholes. Laser-cut numbers on every hole makes it easy to line up attachments and set up for your lifts. The PR-5000 is REP’s most configurable system, with a robust attachment ecosystem. Add cable attachments, storage attachments, and so much more to build out your rack.
Customize your rack with a variety of height, depth, and color options. Build a half rack, 4-post, or 6-post rack. Your rack. Your way. The PR-5000 is finished with laser cutting, robotic welding, and robotic painting all under one roof. This rack will be the centerpiece of your home gym. *The PR-5000 was voted 2022 Favorite Rack on Reddit r/HomeGym*

How do I choose the right rack depth?
The PR-5000 comes in three depth options: 16”, 30”, and 41”. The 16” is great for small spaces. The 30” provides plenty of room to work, while still saving space. This rack needs to be bolted down to the floor. The 41” depth offers the most working space for exercises like box squats and adds a lot of stability to the rack. We recommend bolting this rack down or adding the Rear Base Stabilizer, which removes the need to bolt it down. However, if you're using the Iso Arms, Spotter Arms, or Globe Pull-Up Bar, you do need to bolt your rack down, even with the Rear Base Stabilizer, regardless of your rack's depth. With those attachments, you also need to add Front Foot Extensions to keep the rack stable.
Do I have to add a Logo Plate Crossmember to the PR-5000?
Yes, the top rear Logo Plate Crossmember is required. It serves as an anchor point for future attachments, and it also adds rigidity and side-to-side stability for the power rack.
What is the number one reason to consider REP’s racks versus another brand?
Many attachments are available now and more are in development. A rack’s attachment ecosystem is one of the biggest reasons why you would choose one versus another. When you purchase a power rack, you’re buying into the company’s ability to come out with new attachments that add additional functionality over the life of your power rack. Our engineering team is hard at work developing new attachments every year, and we believe this is one of our biggest differentiators.
How do REP’s racks compare to others on the market?
There are five key areas to consider when comparing power racks: construction, design, consistency, attachments (the “ecosystem”), and value. Here is how we compare to others on the market:
Construction: Construction refers to things like the thickness of steel, welds, and paint. We use state-of-the-art robotics in our brand-new facility to construct our power racks, including laser cutting, robotic welding, and robotic painting all under one roof. This helps ensure a consistent, high-quality product and sets the standard for precision manufacturing.
Design: A 47” width helps ensure easy unracking and reracking of the barbell. Some competitors’ power racks are wider, and you’ll frequently see complaints of clearance problems when re-racking the barbell, creating a safety concern with a heavy squat.
Plastic liners on all attachments are standard. This is a high-end feature that helps protect the paint on your rack and keeps it looking new. Most competitors don’t offer this, or if they do, it’s inconsistently used.
We don’t use stickers. Every logo on the rack is laser cut or stainless steel to look great for years.
In addition, we pay attention to accessory details and upgrades, including chromed weight horns (competitors use a powder coat that immediately chips and flakes away as you slide plates on/off), angled grips on our multi-grip pull-up bar, and many other fine details.
Consistency: We strive to deliver a great product to your door with no hassle. We ensure this by employing our own quality control team that is on-site daily for both inspections and training to improve production methods, such as welding (even the robots need help sometimes!) and packaging. We also ensure our packaging is designed to survive the brutal beating it takes with UPS, so you’ll notice our boxes are reinforced and the parts within are further protected with internal packaging.
Our competitors that import often don’t spend the money for quality control, and our competitors who manufacture domestically often don’t spend the money for great packaging -- both of which lead to hassle for you as you try to get credit for damaged parts or new parts sent.
Ecosystem: A rack’s attachment ecosystem is one of the biggest reasons to choose one over another. Other companies that import typically do not have a dedicated engineering team to develop new products; they simply copy what already exists. If it’s patented, they can’t copy. For domestic manufacturers, they rely on high accessory prices to make up for a lower margin on the initial rack purchase, which means any new attachments cost an arm and a leg, while our global manufacturing advantage keeps costs lower.
Value: Value is subjective, but we’re at the sweet intersection of price and quality. Spend more, and it’s likely just for a name or very minor, nonfunctional details. Spend less and you’re likely rolling the dice or giving up future attachment development. Our attachments are also developed with value in mind, and that’s an area many people ignore, to their later regret. It’s not just the base cost of the rack to consider; it’s the full attachment ecosystem and what you expect future attachments to cost.
In the past, racks were hand-cut, hand-welded, and hand-painted. Today, it’s mostly robotics no matter where it’s made, except for smaller shops that can’t afford the robots or custom one-off production. The benefit of our scale is that we can employ the most modern manufacturing methods, including laser cutting, robotic welding, and robotic painting, resulting in a consistent, high-quality product.
Do I need to bolt my PR-5000 power rack down?
Yes. If you add the Rear Base Stabilizer onto a 41" depth PR-5000, you don't have to. However, if you're using the Iso Arms, Spotter Arms, or Globe Pull-Up Bar, you do need to bolt your rack down, even with the Rear Base Stabilizer, regardless of your rack's depth. With those attachments, you also need to add Front Foot Extensions to keep the rack stable.
What are the differences between the PR-5000 and the PR-4000 power racks?
The PR-5000 has 2” hole spacing throughout with 1” pinholes. On the PR-5000, you can achieve 1” hole spacing on the entire rack with our Lowered J-Cups. The PR-4000 rack’s pinholes are 5/8”. It has 1” hole spacing throughout the bench zone and 2” elsewhere for a precise liftoff height.
The PR-4000 has an impressive attachment “ecosystem”, but the PR-5000 has more attachment compatibility than any other power rack.
The PR-5000 has laser-cut numbers on every hole which makes it easy to line up attachments. The PR-4000 has laser-cut numbers every five holes making it easy to line up attachments, including J-cups and safeties.
Both racks are made with precision manufacturing -- laser cutting, robotic welding, and robotic painting all under one roof -- ensures a consistent, high-quality product.
Can I add weight horns to a 4-Post Rack ?
Yes but be sure that your aren't placing them in the way of where your attachments would be placed.
Why would I want the Compact Logo Plate Crossmember instead of the standard 5000 series REP Logo Plate Crossmember?
The Compact Logo Plate Crossmember has a smaller footprint than the standard 5000 series REP Logo Plate Crossmember.
