Some Assembly Required' is an understatement. The box weighed 174 pounds on delivery, which meant I needed a hand getting it into the house. Once the box was opened, I was surprised at the number of components to be assembled. After digging in, the assembly guide followed a very logical order and was easy to understand. You'll need a couple tools to assemble, but this isn't bad. The PR3000 goes together quickly and none of the components are unmanageable. I had assistance on assembly, the whole process consumed about an hour and a half. Assembling this bowflex is easier than most of the kit furniture you get at office supply stores.The build quality of the Bowflex is stellar. This thing is very stable and looks as though it's built to last. The hardware and attachments are all of very good quality. The user can switch between different exercise 'stations' in very short order. The grips move with carabiners and can be attached to the various cable points very quickly. I am truly impressed. It's quite big once fully assembled, for clearance of the power rods when exercising, you will need approximately 6 feet of available width. The lat tower stands over 7 feet tall!I have worked out on my new PR3000 and am impressed. The exercises aren't geared towards building huge muscle mass, but instead to work all muscle groups. On something as simple as the seated chest press, I noticed that I was working abdominal muscles quite thoroughlly. The force gradient builds up as you reach the travel limits, which feels odd compared to free weights. Nothing bad, just different from what I've done in the past. It seems to be a fairly complete exercise routine in just a handful of basic exercises. The results should be interesting!
1. Easy to assemble.2. Quality materials and fit/finish.3. Absolutely awesome workout. I’m a 40 year old retired Marine. I’ve been lifting since playing football in high school and this machine gives great resistance and a great pump. The resistance band/stroke is different than cable weigh stack machines or free weights so it challenges the muscles and you will feel it. You can do so many exercises with it that a descent workout for all muscle groups is possible. I purchased the 400+ pound extensions and they were worth it, however the average lifter could get a good workout without. Cable and exercise transitions are very easy and quick. If you like resistance training you will love this machine. I bought it for convenience when I can’t make it to the gym and it has been a life saver during this silly virus scare. I will continue to use it even after the gym reopens.
12 years ago we bought Bow Flex for just slightly over $1,000. It's has been good for that many years.. My short & less than 5 feet wife uses it as a rowing machine and LOVE IT !! This beats rowing machine, since the seat is sturdy. The entire machine is light-weight, can be easily moved upstairs. My kid was using it too, it's safe for children. We rarely use the leg press, but the bench is great to do sit-ups.
A marvel of engineering, great quality, fantastic versatility.
