The Bowflex Home Gym is a resistance exercise machine used for building strength and muscle. It was first patented by an engineering student in San Francisco in 1979. Bowflex Inc. began selling home gyms in 1986. Traditionally, Bowflex Home Gyms have been sold via television infomercials. These days, you can buy one on the Bowflex web site or from a sporting goods store.
Many exercises you can do on a gym machine can also be done on Bowflex Home Gyms. But the Bowflex has the advantage of being compact enough to store in almost any room of the house. Prices for Bowflex gyms range from around $650 to over $2,000, depending on the model.
Bowflex Homegyms: How it works?
The advantages of using Bowflex-branded home gyms over other types of fitness equipment are many. As is the case with other good home gym systems, the Bowflex machines provide an all-in-one solution that allows you to exercise every muscle group in your body all in the convenience of one machine that is small enough to fit in people’s homes. The current models of Bowflex Homegyms include Bowflex Xtreme 2SE Homegym, Bowflex Revolution Homegym, and Bowflex PR3000 Home gym.
The power-rod technology used by Bowflex machines is unique and provides an easy way to select the resistance needed. Furthermore, because power-rods get stiffer as you bend them they provide a nice way to increase resistance while doing an exercise.
