Product Description

Amazon.com

The streamlined Bowflex Motivator 2 Home Gym is designed to give you all the tools you need to get results while keeping an eye on your budget. Offering a total body workout in as little as 20 minutes a day, it incorporates specific circuit training into one workout and provides more than 50 different exercises and up to 210 pounds of Power Rod resistance. Great for all fitness levels, this versatile machine helps work the abs, arms, chest, back, shoulders, and lower body. The Motivator 2 includes a lat tower attachment for gym-style lat pull downs, triceps pushdowns and a leg extension/leg curl attachment for gym-quality leg exercises. This machine also utilizes a squat attachment to enhance your overall body workout.

The Motivator 2 utilizes Bowflex's patented Power Rods, which provide resistance, or weight, that feels as good as or better than free weights--but without the inertia or risk of joint pain usually associated with free weights. You can hook one, two, three, four or all of your Power Rod units to the cable pulley system and go from as little as 5 pounds all the way up to 210 pounds of resistance.

They're precisely manufactured from a high-tech composite material under the highest quality control measures, then sheathed and tested four separate times to ensure quality and durability. The Power Rod units are so strong, you can flex them repeatedly but you won't be able to wear them out.



The Motivator 2 provides more than 50 different exercises and up to 210 pounds of Power Rod resistance.
In fact, they're so strong, Bowflex backs them with its No-Time-Limit Warranty free replacement offer.

Key Features:

  • More than 50 available exercises

About Home Gyms
While offering the convenience of working out in the comfort and privacy of your own home, home gyms also allow you to focus on specific routines without having to wait in line or switch between a complex array of machines. In addition to improving strength, power, coordination, and muscular endurance, weight training can enhance weight reduction, enhance the immune and cardiovascular systems, and help prevent injuries. In general, home gym machines are compact units designed to strengthen and exercise many parts of the body. While no single home gym can provide a complete strength training solution, they are a convenient way to combine many exercises into a single unit. Some home gyms focus exclusively on upper-body workouts, while other, more advanced units focus on upper- and lower-body conditioning.

I have owned this bowflex for 2 weeks, and I am very, very impressed. We have owned a "gravity edge" and have worked on a "Solo Flex" before, and after seeing this bowflex, we can understand why the machine has stayed popular for so long.

First, the assembly wasn't too hard. It took me and my 13-year-old daughter about an hour and a half to put it together. I was relieved when I saw that the machine is very ruggedly built. Note that I said VERY ruggedly built. It would be hard to trash this machine without trying very hard.

Second, the machine is very easy to adjust between exercises. Adding or removing weight is a piece of cake, which is a relief after so many pinched fingers and long waits on other machines. Changing the bench position is just a tiny bit tougher to master than changing weights. There are occassions when you have to attach different pullies from the lat tower or the leg extension attachment. This takes a couple of times to get used to, and then it's no problem, either. I can change the machine from the leg extension position to the bench press position in just over 30 seconds.

Third, the program is great and very easy to understand. It focuses on using heavy weight and 1 set per exercise, and has an easy way for you to figure out which weight you should be using for each exercise. The program was explained well enough in the machine's manual, but I bought a book called "The Bowflex Body Plan" when I ordered my machine, and I'm glad I did. You don't have to have it, but it explains more about the program to help you buy into it. It also has several routines that go beyond the initial six weeks plan... for those of us that are optimistic about wanting to continue past six weeks.

I am a house parent for a girls' home.

We got this for our teenage son for Christmas - we all use it and we like it. I don't find it "jerky" or difficult at all - we used to have a Body Solid Pro Smith machine, but it was too big for home use and we ended up donating it to our kids school athletic department.

The only problem with this machine is 210 lbs is not enough resistance for my husband and my son. I purchased the upgrade to 310, but there is no way we can see to attach the rods to the Motivator 2 machine... I plan to check with Bowflex, but according to the information we've found on line, the Motivator 2 seems to be the only unit unable to upgrade - I WISH they would have made that clear, it would have influenced our choice and we would have went with a different unit.

Bought to help lose *baby weight* after having my first child, I love it. Its much more affordable than the typical bowflex yet it still has every exercise I would want for a fraction of the cost. Folds up nicely, is a little bit taller than I guessed but over all a great exercise buy!

Are you tired and fat and want to get in shape? So was I (I know I sound like an advertisement, but it's true). Back in the day I had no clue about eating right and getting in shape. I bought this and used the (once) included guide to eating right and working out. Unfortunately this unit no longer comes with that!

The day I put it together I threw away all my junk food and told myself I would eat better. I ate 1500 calories a day and worked out a half hour every other day. No cardio AT ALL. In under a year I dropped 89lbs. Probably 35lbs within the six week challenge. Using just the Bowflex. Did I gain muscle? Yes, but if that's ALL you want, this might not be for you. I'm sure you can gain a lot of muscle with this if you ate the correct amounts of food and had a good plan.

Will a barbell and dumbbells works just as good? Probably. In fact, if you're goal is to build muscle, i'd reccomend that first. A Gym membership is even better. I have no problems suggesting this product though if you prefer to exercise at home and need something to get started. It did the job for me.

I originally bought the Power Pro model. That didn't have the LAT tower and once sold for over a grand. This model comes with even more and is now much cheaper. I've recently upgraded to this model and it's just as good, if not better.

This is a nice unit, full of exercises that really do help. I've owned it a few weeks and worked out on it religiously and I can really start to see great changes in my body.

The bad news: The 210 pounds of weight resistance it provides was quickly outgrown, and I didn't know this was the ONLY model Bowflex makes that is NOT upgradable. Oh, I bought two sets of extension rods, only to find out you can't put them anyone without making "modifications" to the machine. I added on two of the rods bringing it to 310 pounds total (which is good because my bench press is already 270 - a month ago I couldn't bench press my keyboard), but I see I will outgrow this system in less than a year.

For light workouts this is probably a great system, but if you're interested in continuing to build muscle mass and strength as far as you can, this is one to steer clear from, simply because you can't upgrade it easily (and not at all, unless you're probably voiding the warranty).
