Product Description


Engineered to offer a deep and varied workout, the Bowflex Sport home gym offers a quick, convenient route to improving your physique. 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. Additionally, the Bowflex Sport can be expanded with 100 or 200 additional pounds of resistance by adding additional Bowflex Power Rods, which can be purchased separately.

The Bowflex Sport features over 60 exercises for both strength training and cardiovascular workout. You can build your back and shoulders with the lat tower, your glutes, hamstrings, and quads with the lower pulley/squat station, and all the muscles of your legs with the included leg extension/curl station. Plus, the seat rail slides for aerobic rowing. It also provides handgrip/ankle cuffs for custom workouts.

The Sport 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.

The Sport folds to a compact size (52 by 38 inches) and includes transport wheels for easy storage.
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. In fact, they're so strong, Bowflex backs them with its No-Time-Limit Warranty free replacement offer.

Key Features:

  • More than 60 gym-quality exercises
  • 210 pounds of Power Rod Resistance standard--upgradeable up to 310 or 410 pounds
  • Lat tower with angled lat bar--build back and shoulder muscles quickly with this integrated tower
  • Lower pulley/squat station--use this station to do squats and build your glutes, hamstrings and quads
  • Leg extension/leg curl attachment to develop strong, muscular legs
  • Adjustable seat with polyurethane cushion
  • Sliding seat rail for aerobic rowing, leg presses and seated leg curls
  • Triple function hand-grip/ankle cuffs
  • Multiple cable/pulley positions for custom workouts
  • Owner's manual/fitness guide
  • Dimensions: 38 by 90 by 90 inches
  • Workout area: 100 by 80 inches
  • Folds to a compact size (52 by 38 inches) and includes transport wheels for easy storage

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.

As a new owner of the Sport model, I'm incredibly impressed with both the quality of the machine itself and the quality of the workouts. Nothing replaces free-weights, but you can workout at home without the need for a safety spotter. Good for folks that can maintain their motivation to workout at home. Just a couple of small caveats:
See one assembled before taking one home. These are not small machines - they take up a lot of room. You need room for the rod tower, bench, and leg extension. You also need room to the side for the rods to bend out without obstruction. This machine does not have a small footprint - make sure you have room. The bench and leg extension do fold up for storage, but this isn't something your going to wheel away and store in the closet. It's big!
Second (for the Sport Model at least) remember these words: "Some assembly required!" It comes in four boxes and it took me about three hours to assemble, with a couple of mistakes here and there. It comes with a couple of allen wrenches, but you're going to need a wrench and a screwdriver for this one. Just consider the assembly your first workout on this machine.
Third, the manual that comes with this model is apparently a stripped down version of what comes with the higher priced models. This manual didn't have any recommended workout programs or the Body Leaness Program (with diet) - just assembly instructions and pictures of the individual exercises. If you need help (like I did) putting together a full workout, full manuals are available on-line to download.
This model also does not come with the wall posters that other models do.

(This review is of the nearly identical Conquest Model)

Over the last 2 years, I have been member of 4 different gyms. I traveled a lot overseas during that time, so I juggled the memberships quite a bit and ended up paying way more than I wanted. My usual trips to the gym took 2-4 hours including travel time, I'm a pretty motivated person, but after a while, it is just becomes too difficult to get myself in the gym because of the time and money involved.

After coming back from a recent 1 year trip overseas, I've decided to look into home gyms to save both money and time. After extensive research, I ended up purchase the Conquest here on Amazon. Some other machines I looked at were the Platinum Crossbow, Total Gym, Bandflex. After comparing all the machines and going to the local sporting store to try out the Bowflex, I had no doubt that Bowflex is well worth the money.

Other machines might be cheaper, smaller and easier to assemble. But I found that the Bowflex quality is difficult to match.


I put together the machine in about 2 hours. All you need is a couple of screw drivers, the everything else needed is in the package. The instructions were easy to follow and makes logical sense. However, my Bowflex, like many others, arrived missing a few parts. In my case it was just a few washers and a couple of screws, nothing critical, but such problems seemed common from what I've read.


If you have not used a Bowflex yet, you are in for a treat. The Power Rods provide very smooth resistance and wonderful range of motion. The resistance builds as you flex the power rods, very easy on the joints at the beginning of the motion, yet still provides enough to break down your muscles toward the end of the motion.

Overall, I'd rank the Bowflex Sport as a five star machine. The composite power rods are quite good at providing solid resistance, and the machine has a great variety of features found only on the more expensive Bowflex machines, including a lat tower, leg attachement (with an additional seat) and a squat station.
My one peeve is on another reviewers comments about the ease of assembly and I'm guessing she doesn't have this specific machine. I doubt that she has a Bowflex Sport model, becuase this comes delivered as a case of peices with a whole lot of screws, nuts, bolts, cables to attach it all together. There is no way possible you're going to be up and running within 15 minutes of getting this. Putting this thing together was so tedious, I actually had to take a break in the middle of assembly to run out for coffee. The manual lists 30 different parts that make up the physical unit, almost 20 different types of nuts and bolts, and 11 "accessories" that need to be added after the main unit is put together. This is NOT a 15 minute project!
That said, I'm not deducting anything for the time-consuming assembly, mainly because I like the unit so much. Be forwarned, it's a great machine for weight training, just slot out a half a day or so for assembly!

I have been working out for almost 20 years using free weights and machines and have been using Bowflex sports for almost 3 years and I love it. I still workout with free weight and machines in the gym, but find Bowflex very useful. It still makes my muscles reasonably sore, probably because with Bowflex additional muscles fibres were worked that were left untrained by free weights/machines.

You can do all the exercises with a greater range of motion with Bowflex than with the free weights and machines and in half the time. For legs, I suggest that you buy additional resistance going up to 410 LBS.

One reviewer has correctly stated that the resistance is not uniform and he sees this as a drawback. The resistance is not uniform because the more you pull the power rods greater the force is needed. But you can use this so-called drawback to your advantage in a way that will eliminate the need for a spotter. This is how I use the so-called drawback:

I begin the exercise by pulling the handgrips to a range where the tension feels right, say 90 degrees. For example, if I am doing bicep curl and using 30LBS, in the beginning, I don't feel much resistance until I am half the curl or at 90 degrees angle. So, I limit the range of motion to 90 degrees, and workout the range between 90 and 180 degrees. Next I add more resistance and work out 0 through 90 degree range. This way I am isolationg the entire bicet and can feel the burn through out the muscle without the help of a spotter.

Drawbacks: I have not felt any resistance when using it for crunches.
