Open Thread: Crane Sit-Up Bench

This post contains affiliate links.

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:

Crane Sit-Up BenchThe Crane Sit-Up Bench (Product Code: 803041) is an Aldi Find, which means it’s only in stores for a limited time. At the time of this post it costs $39.99, which prices it 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:

At the time of this post I don’t see any information on who manufactures the bench, and I also don’t see any warranty information. I’ll update that information if I find it.


Have any experience with this bench? Feel free to talk about it in the comments.

  1. Don’t buy the Crane Sit-up Board because the lack of suffient padding makes it Extremely Uncomfortable to use! I had add three layers of a yoga mat and recover it with vinal covering which I stapled on. I would not have bought Crane’s Sit-up Board if I knew how uncomfortable it would be! I plan to replace it with a professional sit-up board with thicker foot and knee pads
