Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym Review

Hello Readers,

Click Now to Read Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym User Reviews

Today's treadmill review is the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym. I get a lot of e-mail about this one from people asking me if it's worth the extra $300 to upgrade from the Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym to the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym. Well, that's a real tough one. There are a few ways we can figure this one out. First, if you're rich and $300 is little more than an hour's pay I say yeah definitely go for it. It's always better to have things you don't need then to need them and not have them. The next two ways to figure this out take a little bit more explaining. To help you make the best choice possible I will cover the differences between these two home gyms.

Just a quick overview, the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym enables users to perform over 70 exercises to work out shoulders, chest, arms, back, and legs. This is a total workout gym, which is an industry buzzword that means someone can use this particular machine to work out every major muscle group. Be careful, there is no real industry standard definition for what a total workout actually means and some treadmill manufacturers use the term to sell cardio equipment. If I were King of the world, that term would only apply to strength training equipment. Anyway, like every other Bowflex home gym the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym utilizes power Rod resistance rather than stacks of weights to provide resistance. It has its advantages over weight stack including being much lighter and more portable than a traditional home gym. As always, this home gym can be upgraded to 310 pounds or even 410 pounds of resistance.

As for the differences, while this is essentially the same home gym as the Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym except it has more pulley positions. If I were personally deciding between these two home gyms and I were on a budget I probably wouldn't be willing to shell out an extra $300 to get the extra pulley attachments. Most of the extra exercises benefit your back and chest but there already plenty of exercises on the less expensive version of this home gym to benefit from. I would only buy this home gym if I had plenty of extra cash in the bank, which I don't.

Overall, this is a great home gym. If you buy it you go to be able to build whatever kind of body you want to build provided you put in the work to do it. The only problem is it's about $300 more than most people really need to spend and you get a whole lot more for the extra cash. If you're considering this home gym I suggest you take a look at the Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym before you pull the trigger and by the Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym.

Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym Review

Hello Readers,

Click Now to buy the Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym Review

I have another Bowflex home gym review for you tonight. In the last couple weeks we've been covering most of the high-end equipment. And we're finally ready to start covering some of the midrange equipment, from the $900-$1500 range. The first home gym on my list is the Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym.

As everyone who knows me knows, I'm a huge fan of Bowflex. There are not too many home gyms out there I would rather have, unless you include the really expensive $10,000.24 hour fitness specialized equipment. Other than that, Bowflex really is the top player when it comes to home gyms. The Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym in particular is designed for someone with a moderate budget. This home gym enables users to perform as many as 60 different exercises and work out every major muscle group from the shoulders to the calves and everything in between.

Some of the highlights of this Bowflex Xtreme SE Home Gym are the 210 pounds of power Rod resistance. Power rods have the advantage of weighing far less than free weights or weight plates that normally come with a home gym. One thing Bowflex has been increasingly including in their home gyms is an abdominal crunch shoulder harness that attaches to the home gym and allows people to develop abdominal muscles. I suppose this is making quite a stir and is an effective response to the strong consumer demand for products that help the build stomach muscles. If you are on a personal quest to sculpt your abs, this is a great home gym to have at home!

I think I really have said it all. You can work out your arms, your chest, your stomach, and your legs. The motion is smooth and fluid. If you don't believe me you can always take the Bowflex six weeks challenge to find out for yourself. If you like this home gym for any reason whatsoever just call Bowflex up in a friendly customer service agent will provide you with instructions for returning this home gym. Bowflex really does put its money where its mouth is!

Blaze Home Gym Review

Bowflex Blaze Home Gym Review
Bowflex Blaze Home Gym Rating:
4 stars out of 5 for being a little pricey
Price: $829
Buy The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym

I just spent about 5 hours filling out my taxes. I wish things were simpler. Can I deduct this, should I count that? Who needs it? I wish I could just say “I made this much” and the IRS says “this is how much we’re screwin’ ya”. Anyway, one of the things I like about Bowflex’s Home Gym product line is the simplified warranty. Home Gym manufacturers often count guide rods separate from bushings, and weight stacks different from frame. Bowflex offers a simple warranty to follow, 5 year warranty against all workmanship and defects, and lifetime warranty on all resistance rods. It’s easy enough to follow even for someone as dull as me!

So, what does the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym have to offer weight trainers? Well, the Bowflex Blaze includes a lat tower to build up your back and shoulder muscles, a pulley station for squats and a number of other exercises like rows and pull downs. Oh yeah, and the seat slides when performing rows. If you’ve ever done rows on a home gym before you know how useful a sliding seat can be. Side note, rowing definitely helps improve cardiovascular endurance, just in case you were wondering. Users can build up their lungs and explode their arms at the same time!

The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym enables users to perform over 60 different exercises targeting the arms, abdominals, chest, shoulders, and legs. The Bowflex Blaze will help just about anyone looking to build muscle strength or tone reach their goals. If you’re worried about the resistance bands not providing enough resistance, the Bowflex Blaze comes with 210 lbs. of resistance standard, and can be increased to 310 and 410 lbs. worth of resistance. That leaves plenty of room for just about anyone to improve.

This is one of my favorite Bowflex Home Gyms and I strongly recommend it for anyone except for professional weightlifters. The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym is a strong buy!
