EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for 2022.
When the new year rolls around, you can bet on people resolving to get fit, packing gyms and making resolutions to get healthier. Aldi is all over this, laying out exercise equipment in January and February as part of its rotating Aldi Find section. A lot of what Aldi sells is smaller — like kettle bells and resistance bands — because the store has limited space to sell them. On occasion, though, Aldi will sell something large, and this sit-up bench is one such example.
What We Know:
The Crane Sit-Up Bench (Product Code: 803041) is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a limited time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, and you won’t be able to find it in stores again until next year.
In 2022 the bench costs $49.99. That’s $10 more than the same bench cost in 2020, but it’s still lower than most other sit-up benches I see online.
According to Aldi, the sit-up bench comes with:
- 2 latex exercise bands with handles
- An integrated push-up bar
- Padded handles
- An exercise guide
Expect to spend some time assembling the bench.
Once put together, the bench measures 53.1″ x 22.4″ x 31.5″. The bench angle can be adjusted as well as folded up for storage. It has a maximum user weight of 330.7 pounds, so keep that in mind depending on who is using it.
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t tried out this bench, so we can’t speak to how easily it assembles, how sturdy and stable it is, or how long it lasts. We’ve created this open thread for users to share their thoughts.
Have any experience with this bench? Feel free to talk about it in the comments.
