Bowflex Max Trainer M5
Bowflex Max Trainer M5 is a hot new release cardiovascular trainer with a very unique modern design. You can choose to get the Florida State University, University of Florida or the University of Michigan logos, all at the same price tag at the time of this review.
The Max Trainer M5 will save you a lot of time on exercise as you’ll achieve the same ore more results that you would on an elliptical trainer or bike in a shorter period of time. It is offered with the breakthrough 14 minutes long maximum internal workout for the best results. The blue LED-backlit display panel includes a tachometer which shows the burn rate and target zones as well as the other usual indicators.
You can synchronize the M5 Trainer with the free max Trainer application. It comes with 9 built-in programs that will help you reach different targets faster. Or you can simply press the Start button to do your own workout manually. The M5 is compact in size and with its upright design it will not take up a lot of space in your home gym. You can’t really peel off the logo as it is painted during the molding. And you may want to order the same without a logo through the Bowflex website.
Please note that this is not for building muscles, but will help you burn calories, strengthen and tone muscles. It is important that you eat healthy on a daily basis and work out on the Max Trainer M5 at least 3 to 4 times a week. The results will be different for each person as we all have different bodies, muscles structures and metabolic rates. People that weigh up to 300 pounds can use the M5 comfortably and safely. The range of motion for arms will be fine for both tall and short people.
It is a very well-built, heavy-duty product that works smoothly and quietly without any squeaking, but you can hear a fan-like sound at higher levels. You may hear squeaking if the unit is not leveled properly on the floor. The Bowflex Max Trainer M5 looks nice, weighs 143 pounds as assembled and will be sent in two boxes that weigh 78 lb. and 88 lb. You need the plug the adapter into a power outlet to turn on the display panel and get the unit working properly. It is not hard to put together if you follow the directions carefully.
The Bowflex M5 is very easy on your joints- offers a low impact workout. And you’ll be burning twice as many calories as an elliptical machine. If you’re looking for a light, casual workout you’ll be challenged even at the lowest setting. It really pushes your body and makes you burn more calories and we do not recommend it for very old adults that can’t handle a tough workout. They are offered with a warranty of 90 days for labor and two years for the parts. These Bowflex bikes are designed in the US and manufactured in China, like most stuff these days. They offer very good value for money.
