    Not yet rated.
    Pros:  Muscles constantly worked through extensions and contractions. Quick change of resistance.
    Cons: Hand grips fall too far away from reach.  

    Summary: I got the Bowflex Power Pro ( 310lbs )from my brother. He had it laying away at his place in a dark corner for a couple of years. He was going to sell it or get rid of it so I told him to give it to me to give it a try.He got most of ... read more

  • DO NOT BUY A BOWFLEX

    Pros: Quick transition between exercises
    Cons: Over priced machine; low quality; poor customer service

    Summary: I purchased a Bowflex Power Pro XTL in December 2003. I chose Bowflex because it seemed like a good piece of equipment. Now, one year later, I must say I am truly disappointed in the quality of this product. Shortly after I began using the Power Pro ... read more

  • Great Workout, why so much plastic?

    Apr 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great exercise, great customer relations, fantastic design
    Cons: Too much plastic used in critical, weight bearing parts. Dangerous.

    Summary: I bought a Power Pro about 2 years ago. It arrived and was exactly as I expected. Light, perfectly functional, and folded to a compact 2 by 2 foot floor space. It has given me 2 years of excellent workouts. I have performed upper and lower body ... read more

  • Schwinn Comp better value than Power Pro

    Mar 26, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: No weights to smash little fingers; Gym sizzle at home; Very adequate resistance; Price; features.
    Cons: No lat bar, just lat hand grips; no leg curl feature on leg attachment

    Summary: I agonized for weeks on which direction to go in a home gym. As most of you probably found out there are dozens of quality home gym alternatives. All have their pluses. In the end, we decided our key factors were *no* real weights to smash little ... read more

  • Best Buy of 2004!!!

    Jan 17, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to transport, Isolates muscle groups, works every muscle, comparible to free weights, quick results
    Cons: A bit Pricey!

    Summary: One of the reasons why I hate using the machines at the gym is because I don't find that they isolate my muscles. For example, if I had the option of doing Dumbbell Flies or Cable Flies, I'd pick Dumbbell flies because I really feel like I'm able to ... read more

    Pros: Gets results, lots of different exercises
    Cons: Lat extension is ill-designed, cheap build quality, expensive for what you get

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good resistance workout. You'll definitely feel the burn with this one.
    Cons: THE PRICE!! OOOOOOOH, THE PRICE!!! Some technical problems, potentially dangerous. Physical plateaus easily reached.

    Summary: I admit it, I've become a workout freak over the past two years. Especially when it comes to weight training. Never having really been into the free weight thing and finally deciding to purchase a home workout system, the Bowflex seemed right for me. I ... read more
