30 minutes a day my foot

By 

from Hinton, WV

Comments about Bowflex Motivator II Home Gym:

Don't believe the hype, I worked out for 6 month's just as they said and didn't  see any of the results. just a big dent in my wallet.  For the price this machine just doesn't live up to all it's hype. Don't waste your money on this product.

Easy for the whole family to use!

By 

from Portage, MI

Comments about Bowflex Motivator II Home Gym:

I purchased this from a friend who never seem to find time to use it. I have a family of five - and I have found that you are able to maxamize your at home exercise with this machine. You are able to work many areas of the body including your abs (ladies). We all commit to a 30 minute routine 5 out of 7 days without much difficulty!

not a great machine, but is adequate for the beginner

By 

from Vestal, NY

Comments about Bowflex Motivator II Home Gym:

I saw the infomercials. Don't believe the hype. This machine is not for serious body builders. If you're used to doing certain exercises (bench press, leg curl, and others), you will need to adjust. The bench press is actually on an incline. You can not do a leg curl even with the optional leg extension. Also, you will notice that you are able to lift more "weight" on the bowflex. With free weight, I can bench press 150lb. On the bowflex, i tried 150 and felt like a feature. I continued on and was able to bench press 180lbs on the bowflex!The machine is good for beginners who are just starting out.The have a 6-week program to help lose weight. I did not buy the machine to lose weight, I bought it to stay fit. So maybe that 6-week program would be worth it. But if you are already in good shape and looking to maintain or build strength, this is not the machine for you.

For most, this is all you need for toning

By 

from Mason City, IA

Comments about Bowflex Motivator II Home Gym:

Hello. The Bowflex Motivator 2 is really all you need for total body toning. It comes with a booklet and wall poster that give you ideas for specific workouts for specific body parts. The power rods are durable and will not wear out if used properly. The bench can be positioned for incline ab, chest, shoulder workouts. The handles are for either hand, ankle, or foot. The lat pulldown tower is excellent for back and tricep workouts. This unit is very durable and is very quiet. The cable system will not bother other people while they are trying to watch tv, sleep, or listen to music. The cable and hook system makes it very easy to change exercises quickly. There are two sets of cables: one for the lat tower and one set for the let extension system. The system has 210 pounds of Power rods but is upgradeable to 310 pounds. The system takes up a small amount of space in a family room or large bedroom. The space needed would be about 7' x 7'.

Provides for a great anaerobic workout and easy to use

By 

from York, PA

Comments about Bowflex Motivator II Home Gym:

As a long time fitness enthusiast an trainer (including in the Army), I have been very satisfied with my Bowflex Home Gym overall. Further, this is after being somewhat skeptical at first and granted there are some limitations (e.g., this model is limited in terms of being able to do a leg press or squat exercise); but overall the machine provides for an excellent all-body anaerobic workout and the changes in adjusting the weights and the exercises are as easy as advertised.

Fantatic Product

By 

from Lansing, MI

Comments about Bowflex Motivator II Home Gym:

This is a great work out system.  You can work out every muscle from your own home and don't even need to step foot in the gym.  I love how the seat moves since I am a bit short.  I would recommend this product to everyone and have even purchased one for my daughter.
