Multiple Machines Fitness Equipment in One DeviceThe Blaze home gym is similar to having a whole resistance training gym tucked right into your den. Bowflex's lat tower with angled lat bar helps build back and shoulder muscles quickly, and the lower pulley/squat station enables you to do squats and build your glutes, hamstrings and quads. In addition, the Blaze is equipped with a leg extension/leg curl attachment that helps develop strong, muscular legs, and the sliding seat rail allows you to perform aerobic rowing and leg presses to improve your cardiovascular health. And instead of different handles for every exercise, Bowflex has designed triple-function handgrips and ankle cuffs with multiple cable/pulley positions that encourage custom workouts. But if custom workouts isn't your cup of tea, Bowflex also includes a workout placard that steps you through the famous Bowflex 20-minute workout.
Power Rod Technology Fitness EquipmentBowflex Power Rods give you resistance, or weight, that feels as good as or better than free weight lifting -- but without the inertia or risk of joint pain that is almost always associated with free weight strength training. Power Rod units are precisely manufactured under the highest quality control measures, then sheathed and tested four separate times to ensure quality and durability. Bowflex is convinced that the Power Rod units are so strong that you simply can't wear them out. You can flex them repeatedly, but they won't lose their resistance or break. In fact, they're so strong, Bowflex has given the Power Rods a no-time-limit warranty. If you can wear the Power Rods out, Bowflex will replace them for free.

Fitness Equipment Bowflex Blaze Home Gym ReviewOverall I am enjoying this equipment. I used a gym and personal trainer for some time a few years ago and did great. But time wasted on travel and using the locker room helped me to quit. My body's hunger to do something drove me to try a Bowflex. And I'm glad I did. This machine takes up a lot of room. I found that I am only so motivated (like many people even if they won't admit to it). The first time I folded this up and moved it out of the way, I ignored it for 1 1/2 weeks. So if you are honest with yourself and realize your motivation is questionable, make sure you have room to keep it down.
These are my issues. But I have 2 complaints with the Bowflex Blaze. First, when folded up the Lat Bar does not rest on its mountings, so it likes to fall when moving the machine. Second, I am 6-4 and due to the limits of the cables and bench there are a couple of exercises I can't do properly. These include Any Lying exercise (Lying Leg Extension, Resisted Reverse Crunch, etc) and Overhead exercises that begin at the Chest Bar Pulley (French Press and Seated Shoulder Press). This is not a deal breaker though since there are many other exercises that will work these same muscles, just not from that angle.
And I agree that the Power Rods do not seem to meet their advertised resistances. But that would only matter if you switch between the Bowflex and free weights. If the Bowflex is your only weight training machine then it really doesn't matter because you will still make gains and increase your workouts.
