Lat pulldown machine?

I am trying to find a particular piece of strength training equipment but have no idea what it would be called in german, and am not sure what swiss weight training equipment stores there might be.

I believe americans call it a cable column or a lat machine or lat pulldown machine.

Anyone know where I might find such a thing, or what I should be googling for in swiss-german?

Thanks :-)

Do you mean the bar, which you can screw between doorframes?

Athleticum has it, see the link below.

They also have the actual machine which is a tad bit pricier.

Re: Lat pulldown machine?

Google "fitness geräte" you'll find ample stores offering such devices. Thing is, they're mostly all in German and the price would easily cover a gym membership IMO.

Re: Lat pulldown machine?

We have something that does the same job, ie bar you can pull down that you can add weights to, this is part of a multigym system including other exercise options that we are selling. Pm me if you are interested.

Re: Lat pulldown machine?

Thanks, but I'm only interested in the one pulldown machine, not a whole home gym.
