Bowflex Revolution Home Gym Review
If you’re in the market for a home fitness system, you’re going to want the most bang for your buck. That means you want a well-made, high-quality set that has the durability of a commercial gym set but can also be reasonably situated within the confines of the home.
With such great demand in the general area of fitness and equipment today, manufacturers are paying attention and are offering products that fit the bill, and in this article, we’ll review one of them, the Bowflex Revolution Home gym.
Bowflex Revolution Homegym Model
Bowflex Revolution, a home gym still using the concepts of tension and resistance, now incorporated circular plates with coiled straps around a cam interlocking in the lace of the rods. According to the company, this new design allows for multiple adjustments for the size of the user, as well as an increased number of variations of exercises. This new technology allows your home gym to take up less space when in use, and be stored in a quicker more efficient manner.
Product Features in General
The Bowflex Revolution Home Gym offers you a compact total body workout. The Revolution is distinguished by the company’s SpiraFlex resistance technology. Because of the SpiraFlex technology, every exercise with the Freedom Arms delivers ultra-smooth, consistent resistance through the entire range of motion – an important ingredient in building lean, strong muscle.
The Revolution utilizes lightweight interlocking plates which let you quickly and easily adjust the resistance from 10 to 220 pounds for upper body workouts (which can be upgraded to 300 pounds). The machine duplicates virtually every exercise from your local gym, with Freedom Arms that adjust 170 degrees to work muscles from various angles with 10 different settings so you can quickly and easily change the direction of resistance and work upper-body muscles from a variety of angles. The machine also includes a leg press plate for your lower body, along with a five-position foot harness. All told, the Revolution supports more than 100 exercises, including a comprehensive core and abs workout.
Advantages of Bowflex Home Gym
For years, home gyms have been bulky multi-station units that occupied a lot of space. Bowflex Gym is the complete opposite of these archaic contraptions. The advantages of the gym over traditional home gym units include:
- The gym is compact
- Variety of exercises
- Cutting edge technology
The biggest challenge with this home gym is the adjustments. With the arms adjusting to over 10 positions depending on the workout it will take time before you can fluidly move from one exercise to the next. All of the positions are clearly explained in the manual so it won’t take long before you are going from one workout to the next.
Typical gym membership costs $100/month (depending on the location and quality of the place). If you shell out the money for a Revolution and cancel your gym membership, the machine is paid for in less than 3 years (and you can get it for $45/month). The Revolution also comes with a 10-year warranty. The bottom line is that Revolution is a quality product. If you want an excellent strength training machine in your house, this is a great choice.
