- Product: Bowflex Blaze Home Gym
- Company: Bowflex, sold from and shipped by Amazon
- My Personal Rating: 9.7 out of 10
Hello! Today I wanted to give you some information and a critique about the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym. For those that have a hectic schedule most of the time, home gyms can be a good option. They also work well for those who prefer working out in the privacy of their own home as opposed to going to a gym.
You can do over 60 different exercises for an awesome total body workout with the Bowflex Blaze. If you were to go out and buy all the equipment necessary for those 60 plus exercises, it would add up to a lot of money, not to mention all the space it would take up.
Hence, the Blaze can save quite a bit of money and space. It’s extremely affordable when compared to other home gyms with similar equipment and size.
Assembly & Versatility
The assembly is pretty easy or you can have it professionally assembled for a fee with Amazon. Once assembled, it can be partially folded to easily fit in a corner of your home to save space.
The exercises that can be done with the Blaze are also very versatile. Therefore, whether you’re in an advanced stage of fitness or a novice, it has plenty of exercises suitable for all.
It comes with pressure resistance rods instead of weights making the resistance easier on your joints. The rods go up to 210 lbs, but you can get the rods upgraded to 310 or 410 lbs for added resistance. By using rods instead of weights, it becomes a safe option and you don’t have to worry about dropping weights on your foot.
Some of the nicer components of the Blaze include its lat bar for shoulders, leg pulley for legs and glutes (buttocks), and it has a feature for rowing. For more information on the benefits of rowing, please see my blog here.
It also comes with a placard that shows different exercises you can do for your major muscle groups. This is great for those just starting a workout program because it guides them in the right direction. The Blaze received a 4.5 rating out of 5 on Amazon as well.
One downside some people have noted is it doesn’t come with any free weights. Some home gym users like to have free weights they can add manually to the system. So if your preference is working out with free weights, this machine may not be a good fit.
Also, some users have reported that some of the positions are slightly uncomfortable for taller people. The range given for taller people was 6’4 inches and taller. For more information on the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym please see the video below.
