Works Great

I received my Bowflex Classic 3 weeks ago and I'm definitely hooked on it. Working out hasn't been this fun and energizing in quite a while - seriously. From aerobic rowing for weight loss to the multitude of exercises for strength training this machine really does it all for an affordable price. It's really well-built and the power rods work as well as they sound. I hate messing with weights so this is a great setup for me.

1 minor quibble though, I wish it came with a DVD to better illustrate the exercises. I could have gotten up and running quicker if one was included. Not a deal breaker by any means though.

3 Days Sold Me

My Bowflex showed up just 6 business days after I ordered it which was a good start to my demoing it. After getting it put together (which wasn't hard at all with the instructions) I tried various exercises to get acclimated to the power rod setup. It quickly became evident that this system works really well. I really like the smooth resistance that the power rods provide. I think it contributes to a more powerful workout. After 3 days of putting it through a variety of tests I was sold. It's definitely a keeper.

A Godsend!

I was looking for a well balanced fitness system to help me tone up and get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm very happy to report that my Bowflex has really come through with flying colors! I've been using it 2-3 days a week for 4 months and I'm so pleased with the results. I've dropped 22 lbs and I'm feeling better than I every have in my life. The extra energy is really helping with the baby too!

Great Value

In a market full of overpriced and overhyped exercise equipment the Bowflex Classic is a wonderful contrast. It really offers a lot of value which is a good thing these days. After using mine for 2 weeks I can state that it does indeed offer the essentials I need to get a great workout without a bunch of frills that would have just made it more expensive. I'm very pleased with my purchase and I've been telling all my friends about it!

5 stars from us!

My wife and I have been using our Bowflex for about 5 weeks now and there's no way in the world we'd send it back. The quality is impressive and we love the Powerrod resistance that Bowflex came up with. We can do plenty of exercises with it and it really works great. 5 stars from us!

Love It

Very comfortable to use thanks to the power rod resistance and ergonomic design. After 2 weeks with my Bowflex I sold my old free weight gym. So glad to get rid of all those bulky weights and replace them with this all-in-one powerhouse. Bowflex rocks!

Arrived fast, easy to set up and works as good as advertised. Wish everything I bought was as smooth as this! Thanks TV Gyms and Bowflex!

5 stars!

This is an incredible machine for getting a really good full body workout. The resistance system works flawlessly and really is so smooth compared to working with weights. It really makes for a workout that's much less stressful on your joints. I'm able to workout longer for that reason. I was also impressed with how affordable it is for the quality that you get. There's nothing flimsy at all about the Bowflex Classic. 5 stars!

100% Satisfied

I originally was looking at one of the higher priced Bowflex models but since my finances were a bit tight I decided to go with the classic model which was more affordable. Boy am I glad I did. It does everything I wanted and then some. Heck, it was even pretty easy to setup which I wasn't expecting. Awesome work Bowflex!

Easy to set up, easy on my joints and easy on the wallet! I wish I had more hands so I could give it more than 2 thumbs up!

A Real Gem

I'm a senior so I was looking for something that would give me a vigorous workout at a level that I could handle. I use my Bowflex 4-5 times a week and it's a real gem in that respect. I'm very impressed with it in every aspect.

Great Machine

Great machine that works as well as advertised. Setup wasn't too hard and the well-written instructions made it easy to get up and running pretty fast. I love the power rods, it's great not having to mess with a bunch of clumsy weights.

I do recommend picking up the machine mat if you have wood floors. I'm glad I did.
