A Review Of The Bowflex Extreme

The very popular bowflex extreme is a decent choice for many people who want to purchase a home gym to get into shape.

You may not want to buy a gym membership because of your daily schedule, time commitments, etc.

But before running out and buying a bowflex in the hopes that it will meet your needs you need to read over the bowflex reviews.

First off, there are many cheaper bowflex machines out there.

Some can give you close to the identical workout, but for less money.

This bowflex, as with most bowflex home gyms, is well built and quite solid.

It's not a perfect machine but few are.

Over-all it's convenient and easy to use but costs a lot of money.

In our opinion there are a lot of really good home gyms out there that may be just as effective but at a much cheaper price.

Benefits Of The Bowflex Extreme

This particular bowflex model does have many positive features, including:

  • You can perform over 60 different exercises on this bowflex exercise equipment. This means that you can get a complete body workout, use a maximum amount of muscle therefore burning more calories.

  • 210 pounds of resistance comes with it but you can upgrade this bowflex model to 410 pounds. Being able to add weight is a good option because most people will find that 210 lbs is not enough. It might sound like a lot but it's not, especially for leg exercises.

  • Lat tower. While a lat tower is a good option for most, you may find that using free weights and doing pull-ups for your back and shoulder muscles is better.

  • An upper & lower pulley and squat station. A must for proper and complete development of your legs.

  • It's easily adjusted and is quite comfortable.

  • It has a reinforced base to provide for added stability.

  • It's compact in size which is very important when selecting a home gym. You don't want to spend a couple thousand dollars on something then get it home and find out that you don't have enough space.

  • It comes with multiple cable/pulley positions.

  • The power rods come with a lifetime warranty.

  • And, it has a 7-year limited warranty on materials and workmanship. Over-all the warranty is one of the best you will find in a home gym.

Note! The very best place you can buy any exercise equipment including the bowflex is online. Some of the reasons include; a much better price and a greater selection.

Many clients have used the bowflex extreme on occassion but in their own opinion, ours too, they did not see the same results as they did when using free weights.

As with most home gyms you will see some results at least with the extreme model of the bowflex as long as you stick with it and follow proper nutritional guidelines.

However, if you want more dramatic results in a much quicker time you are going to have to use a more effective alternative to the bowflex extreme and use a much better over-all fitness program.

There are also a lot of home gyms that can get you much better results a lot quicker for the same price as a bowflex extreme. Hopefully our bowflex review will help to give you a better understanding on how to make a decision that is best for your particular needs.
