If you’ve done any research at all into buying gear for your home gym, you’ve almost certainly come across Titan Fitness. You’ve also probably come across a variety of strongly held opinions about them. Very few other companies in the fitness industry are as polarizing as Titan is. 

Some people hate them. Others love them. And that can leave you wondering if the gear they make is any good or should be avoided. The answer, as in all things in life, starts with “it depends”.

Titan Fitness is a budget-minded fitness brand with a broad array of products. Their impressively large assortment of gear is mostly made in China. The quality of that gear varies wildly from piece to piece. Some of it represents an amazing value. Other items are better sourced elsewhere.

Luckily for you, I own more Titan gear than I sometimes want to admit. Some of it I use to this day and love. Other stuff I couldn’t stand and had to sell. And there are an awful lot of their products that live between those two extremes. 

To help you navigate the sometimes murky waters of Titan Fitness gear, here is a complete walkthrough of the company along with my recommendations of some of it’s better products.

Who is titan fitness?

Titan Fitness is a division of Titan Distributors. Titan Distributors owns and operates 4 different companies. Titan Attachments, aka Titan Palletforks, primarily makes forklift and tractor attachments. Titan Ramps make vehicle and wheelchair ramps. Titan Great Outdoors makes outdoor firepit, cooking, and hunting accessories. And, of course, there is Titan Fitness, maker of home and garage gym gear.

What do all of these companies have in common? Big, heavy, steel products. After looking at all 4, it’s clear that they have relationships with one or more steel manufacturing plants in China. Anything that can be made of steel that fits in one of these four categories they can make/import.

The primary company name, Titan Distributors, clues you in that they are simply middlemen. They contract for bulk orders of goods, advertise them on their websites, and ship them to their customers.

They are not set up for much of anything else. When you understand the structure of their company, you start to see why they do some of the things they do. You get why they have the weaknesses that they have.

Are Titan Fitness Products any good?

That, my friends, is a loaded question. There are some people out there (Alan Thrall on YouTube comes to mind as an example) who would tell you that Titan Fitness makes nothing but garbage equipment.

There are others that have a very different view. Coop over at Garage Gym Reviews on YouTube has done some glowing reviews of Titan gear. See his rebuttal of Alan’s views here.

In my opinion, the answer to this question comes down to two things. What are you expecting and what are you using the gear for.

I’ll use one of their more popular products as an example. The Titan X3 power rack (which I own, love, and recommend – check it out by clicking here) is one of a good-sized assortment of power racks made by Titan Fitness.

If you are buying this for a commercial gym whose members are beasts lifting 1000’s of lbs every day, you are going to be disappointed. If you are buying this to look pretty so you can show off high-end powder coating and pristine welds, you aren’t going to be happy. In these cases, you will say that the X3 power rack is not all that great.

If you are an average person building a home gym and lifting normal human amounts of weight, this rack works fantastically well. If you and several family members will use it daily, you’ll all be happy.

If you need a rack to hold your barbell, be sturdy and secure, and to keep you safe by providing a safe and stable lifting environment, the X3 is ideal.

Most importantly, if you want your hard-earned dollars to go towards function and you are happy to sacrifice a little form to save some coin, Titan is a great choice in most cases! I’m perfectly comfortable with a lower-tier level of powder coating and welds that are strong, but not pretty.

With that example under our belt, let’s take a look at who should and shouldn’t buy gear from Titan Fitness. We’ll then dive into some of their better products as well as some cautions based on quite a few personal buying experiences.

Who should buy Titan Fitness equipment?

I’ll try to make this simple. If you are equipping a home or garage gym and you don’t have an unlimited budget, you should at least consider buying some of your gear from Titan. 

Piggy Bank

I’m not, by any means, saying to buy everything from them. That would be a mistake. There are several categories of products that are better bought elsewhere. But there are several categories where Titan will, honestly, be your best choice.

If you are the type of person who just needs things that work and doesn’t like spending money on shiny, top-end options, you are a Titan customer. A good analogy here is looking at the type of car you buy.

At one point in my life, I bought expensive cars. High-end sports cars. Fully loaded 4×4 trucks. At the time, I loved them. I still kind of do. But now I drive a little hybrid hatchback that gets 49 miles to the gallon. It’s not going to turn any heads, but it gets the job done remarkably well.

Both types of cars get me to work reliably. Sure, one is shinier and more impressive. But my little hybrid is at 169,000 miles and going strong. It’s paid for and I only have to fill up once a week. It’s saved me a ton of money and I still get to work on time every day.

That little hatchback is my Titan Fitness of cars. It ain’t the prettiest, but it works great and I love it. Just like I love my Titan X3 rack.

Who should not buy Titan Fitness equipment?

So, who shouldn’t buy Titan equipment? I think a lot of the people that end up complaining about Titan gear should not have been Titan customers in the first place.

They could have saved themselves some disappointment by being realistic with themselves in the first place.

Titan is not meant to equip a commercial gym. This isn’t their target market. This isn’t who they make gear for.

It kind of irks me when I see people online bagging on Titan because the gear didn’t work for their CrossFit box or commercial powerlifting gym. It’s not supposed to!!!!

It’s not for people looking for the best of the best. Sorinex and Elite FTS offer remarkable top of the line options. If money isn’t a concern for you and you must have the absolute best in your home gym, you probably won’t ever want to buy a Titan product.

It’s not for perfectionists. Their shipping is terrible. Their packaging is sub-par. Your gear is going to arrive with blemishes, scratches, and possibly missing parts.

There will be things that don’t fit or line up exactly. It’s part of the deal with Titan. It’s a big part of how they hit the price points they do.

None of those things will affect how your gear works, but it simply won’t be perfect. See the following images for examples from my own collection of Titan gear.

Other budget options besides Titan Fitness

I think another source of unreasonable complaints is that people tend to compare Titan against companies like Rogue or Elite FTS. And that’s just not a fair comparison.

It’s like comparing a KIA to a BMW. You are better off comparing that KIA to a Hyundai. It’s a much fairer comparison!

So who are the other budget options out there that Titan competes with? Amazon is the biggest, but I’d also include Walmart and Dick’s Sporting goods as well.

Having owned a few of the options from all three of those places, I can tell you with 100% certainty Titan is the better option in most cases. Barbells from Dick’s are just about worthless. Most of the inexpensive racks on Amazon are a waste of money.

Again, I don’t think you should buy everything from Titan. Sometimes Amazon will be the better option. Sometimes companies like Rep Fitness or Fringe Sport will be superior choices. To see all of my personal recommendations, check out my recommended gear page here.

Titan’s Best Products

While Titan offers a huge selection of gear, they make a few things that stand above the rest. Here are, in my opinion, the 5 best products that Titan makes.

Titan X3 Flat Foot Power Rack

Made from 3” x 3” steel beams and resting on a flat foot base (because let’s face it, most of you will never bolt your rack to the floor like it’s supposed to be), the Titan X3 provides all the stability and safety you want from a rack at a very reasonable price.

In fact, it’s a fraction of the cost of comparable 3” x 3” racks by other manufacturers. It won’t be the prettiest rack you can buy, but it will effectively do a great job. And it will leave you plenty of money for the other gear you’ll need for your home or garage gym (see my article on the essential gear all home gyms need here).

I own the X3 and would buy it again if starting from scratch. It’s one of only two racks I recommend to home gym owners looking for the perfect rack at a reasonable price (see the other one on my recommended racks page here).

Check out the Titan Flat Foot X3 rack here!

Titan Safety Squat Bar V2

While the X3 rack is my favorite Titan product, the V2 Safety Squat bar is probably their best.

There are a few things you want in a safety squat bar and the Titan option has them all in spades.

  • You want the right angles between the sleeves and the handles (check!).
  • You want a pad that is all one piece and not 3 separate pads (check!).
  • You want padding that is comfortable yet firm (check!).
  • You want quality plating and sleeves with plenty of room for your weights (check and check!).

I would say that Titan’s Safety Squat Bar is on par with the offering from Elite FTS and that’s saying something! I’ve used both and I can’t see a single reason not to go with the Titan. And the price difference is astonishing!

Check out the Titan Fitness Safety Squat Bar V2 here!

Titan EZ Load Hex Bar V2

I use this bar weekly and love it. One of the biggest drawbacks of a traditional hex bar is that they are a total pain to load. Not so with this option.

Add to that the choice of three handle diameters and you have, in my opinion, the perfect hex bar. From hex bar deadlifts to heavy farmer’s carries, this is one of the most used bars in my garage gym.

Check out the Titan Fitness EZ Load Hex Bar V2 here!

Plate Storage

I just can’t believe what some other companies want to charge for plate storage. Rogue, in particular, must have been out of their minds when they priced their storage options.

For me, the vertical wall mounted plate storage I got from Titan is a steal. It works great, the powder coating is very good, and it was very reasonably priced. This one is a no brainer in my opinion.

Check out the Titan Fitness Vertical Plate Storage here!

Accessories

Whether it’s plyo boxes, slam balls, battle ropes, or any other number of accessories, Titan is a great place to look. I have a number of Titan accessories and they are all high quality and perfectly priced.

Their accessories are scattered across their site, so I don’t have a specific link for you. But keep them in mind if you are looking for any odds and ends like that.

Titan’s worst products

While there are some definite winners in the Titan Fitness stable, there are certainly some losers as well. Here is a quick guide (all based on personal experience) to what I would stay away from if buying from Titan. 

I’ve also included a couple of overall cautions as well. There are some standard pitfalls with Titan that you have to be aware of and willing to deal with.

Bumper Plates

My first set of bumpers was the Titan Fitness competition bumpers. They were so pretty! And they were cheap, too! And holy crap did they stink!!!

That smell never went away. It filled my garage. It rubbed off on my hands. It gave me a headache every time I trained. It made me sell those bumpers at a loss and be happy that I did.

I’ve tried other Titan bumpers and rubber products too and honestly I’d stay away from all of them. The low quality recycled rubber they are made from just isn’t what you want in your basement or garage.

I’ve since gone to the Fringe Sport virgin rubber bumper plates and am absolutely thrilled with them! I highly recommend them and they come in a bunch of different options that you can see here.

Kettlebells

Cheap coating, pitted steel, and sharp bits poking out on the handles all left me more than disappointed in the Titan kettlebells. And they weren’t actually that much of a cost savings over better options.

If you are looking for great kettlebells at a reasonable price, check out the bells over at Rep Fitness. Great finish, awesome design, solid pricing.

Incline Bench

When my buddy called and said he ordered the Titan incline bench, I couldn’t wait to try it out. It looked to be a great deal on a very nice bench. It certainly didn’t turn out that way.

It wasn’t stable or well made. The material was cheap and the padding wasn’t comfortable. My friend used it for a while and then replaced it.

In fairness to Titan, they have since revised that bench and come out with a V2 and I don’t have a review of that for you since I haven’t tried it. V1 was certainly a stinker, though!

For my money, no one makes a better adjustable bench option than Rep Fitness. The AB-3000 is the only bench I recommend to anyone that asks and you can see one by clicking here. *Article update – I’ve upgraded to the Rep AB-5200 and LOVE it! If you need a bench that declines, go with the AB-3000, if you only need flat and incline, the 5200 is clearly the way to go. Check out the AB-5200 here on the Rep website.

Anything that’s a “V1”

Speaking of that V1 bench, Titan has a reputation for rushing products to market and correcting their mistakes based on poor customer experiences. Personally, I’d recommend staying away from anything newly released and wait for the V2 version.

You’ll see this V2 moniker on several Titan products. That’s usually a good indicator that V1 wasn’t the best.

Shipping & Packaging

While not a product, it deserves mention that anything you get from Titan will not be packaged well. The boxes will be torn and ripped and shipping damage is a real thing with them.

The damage is almost always cosmetic, but it does happen more often than it doesn’t. If you go into a Titan purchase expecting this, it’s a much better experience.

One thing to note here is that you are ordering big hunks of steel. They really can’t be “damaged” in shipping. Scratched or scuffed? Yes. But not “damaged” to where they won’t do what you bought them to do. See the image of my rack upright above for an example.

Having things in stock

And now, in my opinion, the thing Titan is the absolute worst at. Keeping things in stock. They don’t. I waited two months for my rack to be in stock. I waited more than two months for my safety squat bar.

It seems like every time I want to order something from them, they are out of stock. At the time I’m writing this article, they are out of literally every version of the X3 rack.

That cloud has a silver lining, though. It’s how I became a Rep Fitness customer. Rep is an amazing company out of Colorado that also sells lower-priced, yet high-quality home gym gear. Their customer service is absolutely amazing and the gear I’ve bought from them has been fantastic.

In fact, if you don’t want to wait on that X3 power rack, check out this alternative from Rep, it’s a perfect alternative.

Conclusion

So is Titan Fitness legit? It sure is. 

Does Titan Fitness make good equipment? I think they do.

Should you buy things from Titan Fitness? In a lot of cases, yes.

I understand that there are a lot of strongly held opinions out there about Titan that are both good and bad. I’m a Titan customer and I will continue to be one going forward. But I’m also a happy customer of quite a few other companies.

I’m not a fanboy of any one manufacturer. Each of them has their strengths and weaknesses. The important thing is to understand each of those, do your research, and buy accordingly.

If you want to see what my countless hours or research has led me to (along with thousands of dollars spent on both good AND bad gear), check out my recommended gear page here.

Happy lifting!

The Rogue R-3 Power Rack is the reigning champ of power racks.

In my opinion, for the majority of garage gym owners, there has not been a rack worth purchasing over the R-3. Not only is it backed by the Rogue Fitness name and all that comes with it, but it's also super high quality and willing to take anything you can throw at it.

Sure, there are bigger, beefier racks; but for the most part, they're unnecessary.

There wasn't a company or rack that could compete with the value of the Rogue R-3…until maybe today.

Titan Fitness over the past year has introduced their line of power racks (most notably, the Titan T-3) that are in many respects duplicates of the popular Rogue Racks, except for things I'll detail in this review. Oh, they're also much cheaper (like half the price cheaper.)

If you're looking for the best value in a power rack, these are your best options, and I'll detail which one should hold the most attention.

Now before I get into the details on these racks, I must first say that in all reality, you can't wrong with either.

If you're looking for a power rack for your own personal use, these are more thancapable of taking the beating that you'll throw at them. But, if you're like me, the details matter. You're interested in what powder-coating is used, are the welds clean, are there compatible accessories, does it shake, etc.

There's a whole gamut of questions that can be asked in deciding on which power rack to choose. There are also a lot of details that are often overlooked at first glance. Because of this, I'm going to attempt to go through as many of the features that I find important on each rack and then compare the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Although the Rogue R-3 and Titan T-3 power racks look-alike, they are different.

First, let's start with the current title holder.

Video Review

Rogue R-3 Power Rack

The Rogue R-3 Rack is the rack I've chosen to have a permanent foothold in my garage.

I've owned or used just about every rackRogue makes. Starting with the SML Squat Stands (I currently use one as a standing desk) and moving all the way up to the monstrous RML-690C. The problem with the smaller racks is they don't allow for a lot of the fun stuff I like to do. Using bands is difficult, forget

Using bands is difficult, forget doing any movements besides strict pull-ups on the pull-up bar, using the safeties is not only inefficient but not nearly as safe as working inside a rack. To put it plainly, If you want a rack for more than just squatting, then get a power rack.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have the oversized Rogue RML-690C.

I purchased the RML-690C after being enamored by its beautiful blue color (I also got a killer deal on it.) However, after delivering it to the house, I realized quite quickly that the amount of space it took up was WAY too much.

You see, it's great to have a lot of equipment, but what's the point of having equipment if you don't have the space to use it.

Because of these issues– the small rack being too small and the big rack being…well… too big, the size of the R-3 and T-3 are the perfect size for 95% of garage gym owners.

I'll start looking at the overall rack and then zoom into some of the details.

The Rogue R-3 features 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights that are 90" tall with 5/8" holes. One feature that Rogue first brought to market and every company since has copied is the Westside Barbell hole spacing pattern. This is a special way of saying that the holes for pin safeties and j-cups are spaced 1" through the bench and clean pull zone, and 2" through the rest.

Since this has become a desired feature for consumers, just about every company producing racks now uses this style of hole spacing as well–Titan Fitness included.

In the beginning, Rogue's Infinity Line was just about the only rack style you could buy. The Infinity Line is what the Rogue R-3 is a part of, which basically means that the racks are made of 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights, along with 5/8" bolting.

In my opinion, this is all that's needed. The Monster-Lite series may have wider steel tubes, but they're not thicker steel, and it's unnecessary. From the perspective of Rogue, they want more people to buy the Monster Lite Series because they can charge more for the accessories (kind of like printer companies who sell toner cartridges for astronomical amounts, but I'll save rant that for a future article.)

Either way, 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights are more than enough.

One of the features of the Rogue R-3 Rack that increases its sturdiness is that its uprights are welded together using 2×3" 11-gauge steel cross-members. Welds are a much more solid way of connecting two pieces of steel together versus bolts that are used on the Titan T-3.

That said, the cross-members are welded, but the pull-up bar is not. This isn't as big of an issue because the uprights should be bolted either through concrete or a weightlifting platform. The problem that arises is not swaying from forwards to backward, but side to side.

Both racks experience this swaying, but I really only notice it when using the Matador dip horns.

One feature that Rogue has spent a lot of time and money on perfecting is their powder-coat. You see it on just about everything they make from their specialty bars to their racks. Rogue has begun selling custom colored equipment, but in my mind, the flat black powder-coat will always reign supreme.

Seeing Rogue's facilities make you realize that their products are cutting edge. Everything is laser cut and machine assembled. I love handmade products like Position Weightlifting Shoes, but equipment is different. I want my barbells to be straight and my power racks to be strong. For that, I trust a high-powered, over-priced machine to do the job.

There's a reason that all of Rogue's welds are so clean. This is a part of their products that outperform all other companies. You won't see spotty welds on Rogue equipment because it won't pass quality control, and if it somehow did get past QC and ended up on your doorstep, then they'll make it right…FAST.

The last part of using Rogue equipment that is a significant benefit, although costly, is the available accessories. Being a part of the Infinity Seriesmeans anything that is compatible with the 2×3" tubing will fit your rack.

Here's what mine looks like when it's decked out:

Titan T-3 Power Rack

Titan Fitness kind of came out of nowhere and had really begun catching the attention of many home gym owners.

I started seeing Titan Racks being talked about a little over a year ago and the question that always came up was, "how can they sell these racks for so cheap?"

And I've wondered too. In fact, I was so curious that I bugged Titan Fitness until they gave me an answer. That answer was, "Trade Secrets =p."So, not much of a reply, but I'd guess it's related to running tight margins, having good relationships with overseas manufacturing plants, and skimping on some features that could be viewed as "non-essential."

Looking at Titan as a company, it becomes quite apparent that they are first and foremost a ramp and forklift attachment company who saw a need in the fitness market and have capitalized.

Unlike other companies trying to keep up with Rogue, Titan has shown that innovation is great for some, low prices are great for most.

Is the T-3 the greatest, sturdiest, best power rack of all time? No, it's not. And that's not Titan Fitness' goal. In fact, one could argue, and I will argue that Titan Fitness is trying to fill a need in the industry and that is slightly cheaper made racks, for a whole lot less money.

And that's exactly what they've done with the Titan T-3 Power Rack.

Titan T-3 Details

Looking at the stat sheet for the Titan T-3, it appears that there really isn't much difference between it and the Rogue R-3.

Here are some details:

  • 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights.
  • 1" hole spacing through bench area.
  • Black powder-coat
  • Bolted to ground
  • Skinny and Fat Pull-up Bars
  • 90" tall

Now, I could go through every detail of the rack, but what everyone wants to know, is how does it stack up to the Rogue R-3. Therefore, let's just dive right in.

I've gone into great detail on the Rogue R-3, but now let's see how the Titan stacks up.

First, let's look at them from an overall perspective.

In all my testing, including using one that was bolted to the ground, I did not find a significant difference in stability between the R-3 and the T-3. It would go without saying that a welded unit like the Rogue R-3will be more stable overall, but, in use, I didn't really notice any differences.

And that's a pretty big deal because the T-3 is a completely bolted together unit. This means it's more portable and easier to adjust depending on your foundation than the R-3. The bolts may, however, lead to more maintenance to keep tight and less durability. But again, I don't find the welded aspect of the Rogue R-3 to be a significant benefit over the T-3.

One aspect of the R-3 that outdoes that of what Titan offers is the powder-coat.

After much back and forth with Titan Fitness, they have assured me that the T-3 is powder-coated and not simply painted as many have claimed. I have no real way of saying for certain that they're telling the truth other than to trust their word. (I have no reason not to at this point.)

Although the Titan rack is powder-coated, it's certainly not the best quality. As you can see in the above picture, saying the powder-coat lacked uniformity would be an understatement. It's spotty, and not even throughout.

I decided to test how durable it was by jamming the J-Cup against it and even went to the length of scratching each upright with a dull razor blade. Here are the results:

As you can see, the Rogue R-3 was more resistant to scratching and after rubbing the scratches, the one on the Rogue pretty much blended in. The scratch on the Titan T-3 stood out plain as day.

The question you need to ask yourself is, how much does that matter to you? I don't baby my power rack, and so there are scratches, rust, and chalk all over it. What matters though is that it does not affect the performance of the rack. Despite there being scratches, the Titan T-3 is not going to perform any worse than before it had scratches.

Another aspect that Rogue outshines Titan is in their welds.

Man, Titan's welds are ugly. There's really no getting around that.

But again, there's a reason they're able to keep their costs so low. If minor details like the appearance of the welds on the rack annoy you, then Titan probably isn't a company you'd buy equipmentfromanyways.

Here's a shot of the welds on the J-Cups:

Speaking of J-Cups, there is another minor annoyance I have with Titan.

Like I said, I've used a lot of racks including just about everything from Rogue as well as many other companies like EliteFTS, Fringe Sport, Get RXd, Again Faster, and others. A feature I've never noticed until now is that J-Cups come in pairs. And just like a pair of shoes, each J-cup has a different connecting brace than the other.

The J-Cups that come with the Titan T-3 (or at least came with mine) features J-cups with the brace on the same side.

Again, this does not affect the rack's performance, but it is a minor annoyance, especially for the OCD side of me.

The j-cups that come with the T-3, outside of the brace being on the same side, are high quality with replaceable UHMW plastic inserts.

Before I evaluate the rest of the accessories, there's one other possible disadvantage on the Titan T-3 when compared to what Rogue offers.

Yes, that's an ugly weld, but you'll also notice how thin the steel is for the piece of steel that connects the cross-member to the upright. My contact at Titan said the steel is 3/16" thick, which is thicker than 11 gauge (what's used in the uprights.)

If I hadn't been spoiled by Rogue, I'd probably never notice that it seemed thin, until I went over to look at all of the connection pieces on their attachments.

That is 3/8" thick steel!

And if you were to purchase the bolt-together R-3, the connection points are all the same as well. Again, we must ask the question, is it necessary? It's likely not and is yet another reason Titan is able to keep their costs lower.

Let's move on to the accessories.

Rogue R-3 vs. Titan T-3 Accessories

Rogue has done a lot of things right, but in my mind, one of the best things they've done is created so many options for accessories.

Sure, they're expensive, but it's obvious people are willing to pay the price for more versatility.

One of the things I was most hopeful for when Titan began producing more accessories was compatibility with Rogue racks. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and I'm guessing it's for a reason.

Rogue Fitness accessories will work with Titan Fitness Racks. Titan accessories will NOT work with Rogue racks. Bummer, I know.

I'm guessing this keeps consumers from purchasing a Rogue rack and then decking it out with cheaper Titan accessories. Or, it could be patent related, who knows.

One of the biggest benefits the Titan T-3 has over the R-3 outside of price is the included accessories.

The T-3 comes with:

  • 2 pairs of plate posts
  • 1 pair of Pin/Pipe Safeties
  • 4 Band Pegs
  • 1 Fat (2") Pullup Bar
  • 1 Skinny (1.25") Pullup Bar

And it's all included. Rogue can't hold a candle to that.

The accessories are pretty great too. The plate posts held the weight well, the band pegs gripped the bands, and the pin/pipe safeties will save you from dying.

That said, the pin/pipe safeties on the T-3 are less "heavy-duty" just as most of the rack is when compared to Rogue's R-3. Here is the thickness of the pipe safeties:

I'll let you guess who makes which (hint: Rogue is on the left.)

The last feature of the Titan T-3 that I really like is separate pull-up bars. Rather than being connected like Rogue has done, Titan decided to keep them separate adding stability to the rack and allowing for two people to do pull-ups at the same time.

The powder-coat holds chalk decently well, but it's quite a bit slicker than Rogues.

So, which should you buy?

I've written an exhaustively detailed article on both racks, but now you have to decide which is best for you.

As of this writing, the Rogue R-3 retails for around $700 not including shipping.

The Titan T-3 is around $420 with free shipping.

That's a BIG difference.

If you want the absolute best and are willing to spend the money than I would suggest going with the Rogue R-3 Power Rack.

If you don't sweat the details and simply want a rack that is going to perform years of reliable service, then go with the Titan T-3 Power Rack.

You literally cannot go wrong with either, it just comes down to how much you want to spend.

I would like to end with what I truly believe: The Titan T-3 is the best value power rack available today, and nothing comes even close!

Great value and quality

I wanted a new rack for our home gym. Our old rack was a budget one that we had bought from a big box store several years ago. The biggest problem with our old rack was the spacing of the holes for the J hooks which were too far apart. This rack is comparable to Rogue but at half the price. It has closer hole spacing the in the bench press area and the gets further apart for squats. The other nice thing about this rack is all the add ons. It comes with J hooks, safety bars, weight holders and pegs for bands. Ther are also several accessories that you can buy from Titan fitness for it.

No instructions, no plate holders

First attempt at buying this resulted in a lost package via FedEx. Second attempt arrived in a bent box halfway thrown in the bushes. Opened the box to find no assembly instructions and no plate holders included. For $500 I should at least get instructions, come on

Please read the negative reviews & trust.

Since its a power rack, it ships in multiple boxes, which is fine. To add on, I am sure these pieces of equipment are great, they seem sturdy and usable. What happened was that as another customer said, "Don't Ship FedEx." I should've listened right away. There were only 4 plate holders and two bars that came home and the rest was just gone. I was luckily able to get a refund. Spend more and buy yourself a good Rogue Rack (even though racks are expensive, it is worth).

I ordered this rack after a friend recommended it and I was not disappointed! The packaging was a little rough, but the equipment arrived without any damage.

Overall it’s a solid sturdy rack for a great price! Definitely recommend if you are in the market!

Don't buy! Don't ship FedEx!

Between the pisspoor packaging, scratches, nicks and dings all over, this looks like a10 year old product. Letters in the word "fitness" are missing, the whole thing is crooked, I had to put a piece of rubber under one leg to sturdy it up, it is off by almost 3/4 of and inch. No instructions, no packing list, 100 or so pounds of metal packaged in cardboard, Good one titan! "Sarcasm" I'll never buy another titan product. Spend the money and get rogue, it'll last forever. Fedex took forever to deliver the second box and their customer service sucks. DON'T SHIP FEDEX! Box 1 received 6/21, box 2 received 7/16. It has been sitting in Ocala fl since 7/1 with discrepancies in damaged label. Noone from titan or FedEx bothered to call to let me know what was going on. I had to pitch a fit to get this delivered. Driver from FedEx rode around with the package yesterday and took it back with him. He never bothered to deliver it. Unprofessional, pisspoor management with titan quality and fedex customer service. This is just plain laziness and people not willing to do their jobs. A lot of people should be fired. Go local and support your local stores and businesses.

The Rogue R-3 Power Rack is the reigning champ of power racks.

In my opinion, for the majority of garage gym owners, there has not been a rack worth purchasing over the R-3. Not only is it backed by the Rogue Fitness name and all that comes with it, but it's also super high quality and willing to take anything you can throw at it.

Sure, there are bigger, beefier racks; but for the most part, they're unnecessary.

There wasn't a company or rack that could compete with the value of the Rogue R-3…until maybe today.

Titan Fitness over the past year has introduced their line of power racks (most notably, the Titan T-3) that are in many respects duplicates of the popular Rogue Racks, except for things I'll detail in this review. Oh, they're also much cheaper (like half the price cheaper.)

If you're looking for the best value in a power rack, these are your best options, and I'll detail which one should hold the most attention.

Now before I get into the details on these racks, I must first say that in all reality, you can't wrong with either.

If you're looking for a power rack for your own personal use, these are more thancapable of taking the beating that you'll throw at them. But, if you're like me, the details matter. You're interested in what powder-coating is used, are the welds clean, are there compatible accessories, does it shake, etc.

There's a whole gamut of questions that can be asked in deciding on which power rack to choose. There are also a lot of details that are often overlooked at first glance. Because of this, I'm going to attempt to go through as many of the features that I find important on each rack and then compare the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Although the Rogue R-3 and Titan T-3 power racks look-alike, they are different.

First, let's start with the current title holder.

Video Review

Rogue R-3 Power Rack

The Rogue R-3 Rack is the rack I've chosen to have a permanent foothold in my garage.

I've owned or used just about every rackRogue makes. Starting with the SML Squat Stands (I currently use one as a standing desk) and moving all the way up to the monstrous RML-690C. The problem with the smaller racks is they don't allow for a lot of the fun stuff I like to do. Using bands is difficult, forget

Using bands is difficult, forget doing any movements besides strict pull-ups on the pull-up bar, using the safeties is not only inefficient but not nearly as safe as working inside a rack. To put it plainly, If you want a rack for more than just squatting, then get a power rack.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have the oversized Rogue RML-690C.

I purchased the RML-690C after being enamored by its beautiful blue color (I also got a killer deal on it.) However, after delivering it to the house, I realized quite quickly that the amount of space it took up was WAY too much.

You see, it's great to have a lot of equipment, but what's the point of having equipment if you don't have the space to use it.

Because of these issues– the small rack being too small and the big rack being…well… too big, the size of the R-3 and T-3 are the perfect size for 95% of garage gym owners.

I'll start looking at the overall rack and then zoom into some of the details.

The Rogue R-3 features 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights that are 90" tall with 5/8" holes. One feature that Rogue first brought to market and every company since has copied is the Westside Barbell hole spacing pattern. This is a special way of saying that the holes for pin safeties and j-cups are spaced 1" through the bench and clean pull zone, and 2" through the rest.

Since this has become a desired feature for consumers, just about every company producing racks now uses this style of hole spacing as well–Titan Fitness included.

In the beginning, Rogue's Infinity Line was just about the only rack style you could buy. The Infinity Line is what the Rogue R-3 is a part of, which basically means that the racks are made of 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights, along with 5/8" bolting.

In my opinion, this is all that's needed. The Monster-Lite series may have wider steel tubes, but they're not thicker steel, and it's unnecessary. From the perspective of Rogue, they want more people to buy the Monster Lite Series because they can charge more for the accessories (kind of like printer companies who sell toner cartridges for astronomical amounts, but I'll save rant that for a future article.)

Either way, 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights are more than enough.

One of the features of the Rogue R-3 Rack that increases its sturdiness is that its uprights are welded together using 2×3" 11-gauge steel cross-members. Welds are a much more solid way of connecting two pieces of steel together versus bolts that are used on the Titan T-3.

That said, the cross-members are welded, but the pull-up bar is not. This isn't as big of an issue because the uprights should be bolted either through concrete or a weightlifting platform. The problem that arises is not swaying from forwards to backward, but side to side.

Both racks experience this swaying, but I really only notice it when using the Matador dip horns.

One feature that Rogue has spent a lot of time and money on perfecting is their powder-coat. You see it on just about everything they make from their specialty bars to their racks. Rogue has begun selling custom colored equipment, but in my mind, the flat black powder-coat will always reign supreme.

Seeing Rogue's facilities make you realize that their products are cutting edge. Everything is laser cut and machine assembled. I love handmade products like Position Weightlifting Shoes, but equipment is different. I want my barbells to be straight and my power racks to be strong. For that, I trust a high-powered, over-priced machine to do the job.

There's a reason that all of Rogue's welds are so clean. This is a part of their products that outperform all other companies. You won't see spotty welds on Rogue equipment because it won't pass quality control, and if it somehow did get past QC and ended up on your doorstep, then they'll make it right…FAST.

The last part of using Rogue equipment that is a significant benefit, although costly, is the available accessories. Being a part of the Infinity Seriesmeans anything that is compatible with the 2×3" tubing will fit your rack.

Here's what mine looks like when it's decked out:

Titan T-3 Power Rack

Titan Fitness kind of came out of nowhere and had really begun catching the attention of many home gym owners.

I started seeing Titan Racks being talked about a little over a year ago and the question that always came up was, "how can they sell these racks for so cheap?"

And I've wondered too. In fact, I was so curious that I bugged Titan Fitness until they gave me an answer. That answer was, "Trade Secrets =p."So, not much of a reply, but I'd guess it's related to running tight margins, having good relationships with overseas manufacturing plants, and skimping on some features that could be viewed as "non-essential."

Looking at Titan as a company, it becomes quite apparent that they are first and foremost a ramp and forklift attachment company who saw a need in the fitness market and have capitalized.

Unlike other companies trying to keep up with Rogue, Titan has shown that innovation is great for some, low prices are great for most.

Is the T-3 the greatest, sturdiest, best power rack of all time? No, it's not. And that's not Titan Fitness' goal. In fact, one could argue, and I will argue that Titan Fitness is trying to fill a need in the industry and that is slightly cheaper made racks, for a whole lot less money.

And that's exactly what they've done with the Titan T-3 Power Rack.

Titan T-3 Details

Looking at the stat sheet for the Titan T-3, it appears that there really isn't much difference between it and the Rogue R-3.

Here are some details:

  • 2×3" 11-gauge steel uprights.
  • 1" hole spacing through bench area.
  • Black powder-coat
  • Bolted to ground
  • Skinny and Fat Pull-up Bars
  • 90" tall

Now, I could go through every detail of the rack, but what everyone wants to know, is how does it stack up to the Rogue R-3. Therefore, let's just dive right in.

I've gone into great detail on the Rogue R-3, but now let's see how the Titan stacks up.

First, let's look at them from an overall perspective.

In all my testing, including using one that was bolted to the ground, I did not find a significant difference in stability between the R-3 and the T-3. It would go without saying that a welded unit like the Rogue R-3will be more stable overall, but, in use, I didn't really notice any differences.

And that's a pretty big deal because the T-3 is a completely bolted together unit. This means it's more portable and easier to adjust depending on your foundation than the R-3. The bolts may, however, lead to more maintenance to keep tight and less durability. But again, I don't find the welded aspect of the Rogue R-3 to be a significant benefit over the T-3.

One aspect of the R-3 that outdoes that of what Titan offers is the powder-coat.

After much back and forth with Titan Fitness, they have assured me that the T-3 is powder-coated and not simply painted as many have claimed. I have no real way of saying for certain that they're telling the truth other than to trust their word. (I have no reason not to at this point.)

Although the Titan rack is powder-coated, it's certainly not the best quality. As you can see in the above picture, saying the powder-coat lacked uniformity would be an understatement. It's spotty, and not even throughout.

I decided to test how durable it was by jamming the J-Cup against it and even went to the length of scratching each upright with a dull razor blade. Here are the results:

As you can see, the Rogue R-3 was more resistant to scratching and after rubbing the scratches, the one on the Rogue pretty much blended in. The scratch on the Titan T-3 stood out plain as day.

The question you need to ask yourself is, how much does that matter to you? I don't baby my power rack, and so there are scratches, rust, and chalk all over it. What matters though is that it does not affect the performance of the rack. Despite there being scratches, the Titan T-3 is not going to perform any worse than before it had scratches.

Another aspect that Rogue outshines Titan is in their welds.

Man, Titan's welds are ugly. There's really no getting around that.

But again, there's a reason they're able to keep their costs so low. If minor details like the appearance of the welds on the rack annoy you, then Titan probably isn't a company you'd buy equipmentfromanyways.

Here's a shot of the welds on the J-Cups:

Speaking of J-Cups, there is another minor annoyance I have with Titan.

Like I said, I've used a lot of racks including just about everything from Rogue as well as many other companies like EliteFTS, Fringe Sport, Get RXd, Again Faster, and others. A feature I've never noticed until now is that J-Cups come in pairs. And just like a pair of shoes, each J-cup has a different connecting brace than the other.

The J-Cups that come with the Titan T-3 (or at least came with mine) features J-cups with the brace on the same side.

Again, this does not affect the rack's performance, but it is a minor annoyance, especially for the OCD side of me.

The j-cups that come with the T-3, outside of the brace being on the same side, are high quality with replaceable UHMW plastic inserts.

Before I evaluate the rest of the accessories, there's one other possible disadvantage on the Titan T-3 when compared to what Rogue offers.

Yes, that's an ugly weld, but you'll also notice how thin the steel is for the piece of steel that connects the cross-member to the upright. My contact at Titan said the steel is 3/16" thick, which is thicker than 11 gauge (what's used in the uprights.)

If I hadn't been spoiled by Rogue, I'd probably never notice that it seemed thin, until I went over to look at all of the connection pieces on their attachments.

That is 3/8" thick steel!

And if you were to purchase the bolt-together R-3, the connection points are all the same as well. Again, we must ask the question, is it necessary? It's likely not and is yet another reason Titan is able to keep their costs lower.

Let's move on to the accessories.

Rogue R-3 vs. Titan T-3 Accessories

Rogue has done a lot of things right, but in my mind, one of the best things they've done is created so many options for accessories.

Sure, they're expensive, but it's obvious people are willing to pay the price for more versatility.

One of the things I was most hopeful for when Titan began producing more accessories was compatibility with Rogue racks. Unfortunately, this is not the case, and I'm guessing it's for a reason.

Rogue Fitness accessories will work with Titan Fitness Racks. Titan accessories will NOT work with Rogue racks. Bummer, I know.

I'm guessing this keeps consumers from purchasing a Rogue rack and then decking it out with cheaper Titan accessories. Or, it could be patent related, who knows.

One of the biggest benefits the Titan T-3 has over the R-3 outside of price is the included accessories.

The T-3 comes with:

  • 2 pairs of plate posts
  • 1 pair of Pin/Pipe Safeties
  • 4 Band Pegs
  • 1 Fat (2") Pullup Bar
  • 1 Skinny (1.25") Pullup Bar

And it's all included. Rogue can't hold a candle to that.

The accessories are pretty great too. The plate posts held the weight well, the band pegs gripped the bands, and the pin/pipe safeties will save you from dying.

That said, the pin/pipe safeties on the T-3 are less "heavy-duty" just as most of the rack is when compared to Rogue's R-3. Here is the thickness of the pipe safeties:

I'll let you guess who makes which (hint: Rogue is on the left.)

The last feature of the Titan T-3 that I really like is separate pull-up bars. Rather than being connected like Rogue has done, Titan decided to keep them separate adding stability to the rack and allowing for two people to do pull-ups at the same time.

The powder-coat holds chalk decently well, but it's quite a bit slicker than Rogues.

So, which should you buy?

I've written an exhaustively detailed article on both racks, but now you have to decide which is best for you.

As of this writing, the Rogue R-3 retails for around $700 not including shipping.

The Titan T-3 is around $420 with free shipping.

That's a BIG difference.

If you want the absolute best and are willing to spend the money than I would suggest going with the Rogue R-3 Power Rack.

If you don't sweat the details and simply want a rack that is going to perform years of reliable service, then go with the Titan T-3 Power Rack.

You literally cannot go wrong with either, it just comes down to how much you want to spend.

I would like to end with what I truly believe: The Titan T-3 is the best value power rack available today, and nothing comes even close!

Great value and quality

I wanted a new rack for our home gym. Our old rack was a budget one that we had bought from a big box store several years ago. The biggest problem with our old rack was the spacing of the holes for the J hooks which were too far apart. This rack is comparable to Rogue but at half the price. It has closer hole spacing the in the bench press area and the gets further apart for squats. The other nice thing about this rack is all the add ons. It comes with J hooks, safety bars, weight holders and pegs for bands. Ther are also several accessories that you can buy from Titan fitness for it.

No instructions, no plate holders

First attempt at buying this resulted in a lost package via FedEx. Second attempt arrived in a bent box halfway thrown in the bushes. Opened the box to find no assembly instructions and no plate holders included. For $500 I should at least get instructions, come on

Please read the negative reviews & trust.

Since its a power rack, it ships in multiple boxes, which is fine. To add on, I am sure these pieces of equipment are great, they seem sturdy and usable. What happened was that as another customer said, "Don't Ship FedEx." I should've listened right away. There were only 4 plate holders and two bars that came home and the rest was just gone. I was luckily able to get a refund. Spend more and buy yourself a good Rogue Rack (even though racks are expensive, it is worth).

Highly recommend

I ordered this rack after a friend recommended it and I was not disappointed! The packaging was a little rough, but the equipment arrived without any damage. The instructions are online and they provide a small card in the box that gives you a code to lookup the manual for your specific piece of equipment. Overall it’s a solid sturdy rack for a great price! Definitely recommend if you are in the market!

Missing lots of bolts, washers, and nuts

Was excited for this thing to arrive but as I was putting it together I noticed that the counts on the bolts, washers, and nuts was way off. Still waiting for Titan fitness to send the replacements.

Don't buy! Don't ship FedEx!

Between the pisspoor packaging, scratches, nicks and dings all over, this looks like a10 year old product. Letters in the word "fitness" are missing, the whole thing is crooked, I had to put a piece of rubber under one leg to sturdy it up, it is off by almost 3/4 of and inch. No instructions, no packing list, 100 or so pounds of metal packaged in cardboard, Good one titan! "Sarcasm" I'll never buy another titan product. Spend the money and get rogue, it'll last forever. Fedex took forever to deliver the second box and their customer service sucks. DON'T SHIP FEDEX! Box 1 received 6/21, box 2 received 7/16. It has been sitting in Ocala fl since 7/1 with discrepancies in damaged label. Noone from titan or FedEx bothered to call to let me know what was going on. I had to pitch a fit to get this delivered. Driver from FedEx rode around with the package yesterday and took it back with him. He never bothered to deliver it. Unprofessional, pisspoor management with titan quality and fedex customer service. This is just plain laziness and people not willing to do their jobs. A lot of people should be fired. Go local and support your local stores and businesses.
