My Review of the Bowflex Max Trainer M5 – Features and Benefits of the M5

There are so many options available to consumers today for fitness equipment. The market has been flooded with gimmicks that work well and others that don’t work so well. Bowflex is a company that has been around since 1986 with a well-documented history of creating fitness/workout equipment. The product that we’re going to look at today is the Bowflex Max Trainer M5.


Possibly the most important feature of the M5 is the actual physics of the machine. Operation of the machine produces low stress situations on joints with low-impact technology. The machine itself weighs a couple bills and is relatively easy to put together if you have a hex wrench and a couple hours.


Anyone who is a fitness enthusiast appreciates workouts that are streamlined and efficient. This same technology that produces little stress on joints also improves the efficiency of your workouts yielding caloric expenditures that are 250% greater than a comparable workout on a treadmill. Any fitness enthusiast will probably appreciate this feature since it will translate into greater motivation to achieve new goals.

Efficiency translates into time saved with your workouts and/or getting better workouts overall. The machine has 9 longer sessions of pre-programmed workouts available or a 14-minute “interval style” training option that will push you to the limit. These “interval style” workouts have been shown to produce caloric expenditure not only during the workout, but hours after. This means you will be burning residual calories throughout the day.

Combine all of the mechanical and technical features of an advanced treadmill machine together with the aesthetic appeal associated with a Bowflex, throw in Bluetooth technology, and you’ve got yourself the M5. A few other notable features of the Bowflex Max Trainer M5 include premium grips, back-lit display, heart-rate monitoring and a compact design which gives you the flexibility to fit in just about any room in your home.
