Let me cut right to the chase. The home gym equipment industry is full of scams. Most of these people care about nothing but making a quick buck. The products they sell are glorified wall decorations that never get used. They strip innocent customers of their money. In this article I’m going to give you an honest Bowflex review.
When I first saw the Bowflex commercials, I’ll admit that I was intrigued. I was looking for a home gym at the time and it seemed like a viable option. But, let me tell you, the Bowflex is not everything they make it out to be.
From what I gathered from the commercials, I believed I would be able to build some serious muscle with a Bowflex machine. All the guy models on TV looked big. My wife on other hand, was impressed by the female models and thought she could use it to tone up. Well, I’ll be first to say: I’m pretty sure those models have never used a Bowflex machine.
There are some good features of the Bowflex. It is pretty compact and easy to fold away. If you ever decide you want to move it to another room, or another house, you wont have any problem disassembling it and putting it back together.
The Bowflex is not a muscle building, or fat losing, machine. You simply cannot build a body like they show on TV with the Bowflex. It takes a combination of the right diet and exercise program to get there.
I paid nearly $2000 for my machine, which I regret. I could have got a couple years worth of gym memberships for me and my wife.
It is as not as easy they claim to switch between exercises. I ended up spending as much time fiddling with the resistance bars as I did working out.
I hope this review has helped you in some way. I wouldn’t necessarily say that Bowflex is a scam. Certain people might like it’s convenience, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
