    It works, no harm to your door frame. My roomate who bought it weighs about 210, 6'1". I'm my size, and we've already put a dip in the thing. The bar that spans across your door opening is 2 pieces, attached right in the middle.

    A lighter person might be able to get away with using it, but for bigger guys I would say its out of the question.

    I think the Iron Gym is definitely worth the $30 if you are under the weight limit (I think its 300lbs). I didn't use the little metal piece they say you should mount on the door frame because I don't want to mess up the door/frame and it still held strong (I weigh around 180lbs). Its just nice to be able work the back at home in your free time. Don't forget to take it off the door after you're done because its easy to forget its there and it can mess up your door if you try to shut it.
    They also give you the hanging ab straps for the price of shipping and handling.

    I own one and took it to my office. I started of with 5 guys from my office, but am down to 3 doing a 100 day pull up challenge and we use it for that. It gets about 170-200 pull ups on it a day right now and is still working great. No damage to the door either. Def a good 30 bucks spent.

    Hasn't done any damage to my door. At least not yet and I have had it for about 3 months.

    If you have a place that you can hang them from I would highly recommend Blast Straps. I have used these consistently for over a year with up to 300+ pounds hanging from them I haven't noticed any wear.

    It broke my doors, but mine are very weak doors. But yes, it's definitely good for pullups.

    I bought one a few weeks ago and love it! No damage to the door frames, which is something I worried about. I feel like the design pushes into the side frames, so it's not like all the weight is pulling down in the top frame. I only weigh about 155, but up to 200 lbs should be fine.

    Im a little late on this, but my 25+ year old door frames held fine when I was 230+ lbs, and are still holding now that Im down to 219. Plus I really like the foam grips, just slightly different than the "rubber" foam on the pull up stand/rack I have access to, which I dont care for. I recommend the iron gym highly to everyone who asks about it.
