Bowflex 1000 Home Gym,
This review is from: Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym (Sports)
I absolutely love this item. I lost 7 pounds in the first five days and after almost one month the only times I cheated was when I worked out on my "off days."
Assembly was quick and easy. I was done in about an hour and a half and was and remain more than satisfied with the quality of this machine. I am very impressed with the it's design and engineering.
The bad news is I broke a rod on my first rep of my first exercise. That didn't bother me too much as it was fairly easy to use the machine without one rod. Also, the service department was quick to respond.
The only other drawback is that there is not enough weight to work the legs. However, I imagine it won't be too difficult to get a rod pack offering more resistance.
Bottom line is the drawbacks of this machine are minor and are vastly outweighed by the numerous advantages. I have combined the Bowflex workout with a daily walk, improved diet and hydration and have seen quick and dramatic results.
