Bowflex Home Gym Review
The Bowflex Home Gym offers many benefits that are lacking in other home exercise equipment. The Bowflex system has a clear advantage due to its use of mechanical tension in place of pulleys with weights. Although the unit offers stability, and is not prone to tipping over, the Bowflex Gym can be moved by one or two people without a great deal of straining, even after it's fully assembled. Bowflex fits conveniently in an average-sized room.
When we first received our Bowflex Gym, the instructions for set-up were easy to follow. We have also found that the settings to adjust the tension or resistance are convenient, so that different members of the family can work out at their own level of fitness. The company's Customer service and online assistance was also accessible when needed. The Bowflex Home Gym is one of the few residential systems that is competitive with what you would use in a commercial gymnasium or health spa. The other home gym sets we have used in the past tend to have jerky motions and problems with cables that succumb quickly to wear and tear.
You may be familiar with the exercise machines at "Curves," which use a sophisticated hydraulic system to create resistance. The feeling of Bowflex, although much more affordable in price, is comparable to a hydraulic resistance machine. The fluidity of motion, with a variety of resistance settings, offers a great alternative to a commercial gym, with comparable results. Compared to weight machines where the heavy disks must be attached and unattached for each level of difficulty, the adjustment of the Bowflex machine is more convenient and safe.
With regard to health results, the Bowflex Home Gym has delivered a variety of benefits. The greatest and most dramatic result for all three people using the machine has been toning of the upper arms. Bowflex offers several varieties of arm and shoulder exercises, and the user feels comfortable but adequately challenged when performing these. After four months of use, moderate results in thighs and abdominal muscle tone have been achieved, but these are notoriously tough areas to tackle. The Bowflex system has also shown good results for the lower calf area of the leg.
Two of the three family members using Bowflex have reported an additional benefit: lowered blood pressure and lower resting heart rates. Although the Bowflex Home Gym does not offer a complete cardiovascular workout, the slow and steady resistance does appear to benefit overall fitness and conditioning. As the muscles are worked the user's heart rate increases enough to replicate some types of aerobic conditioning, like water aerobics, but with more resistance. If you choose to push hard on the Bowflex machine, you can set the resistance higher and really work up a sweat. Conversely, if you want more repetitions at a lower intensity, Bowflex still offers a challenging workout. Bowflex optimizes the comfort and privacy of your own home, with the added bonuses of no driving to the gym, and no gym fees.
