Bowflex Blaze Home Gym Review
What You Should Know
The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym is a huge workout station that folds to consume less space in tighter areas. When unfolded, the home gym takes up around 9′ by 7′, much more space than other compact units. As is the case with most Bowflex home gyms, the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym uses power rod technology instead of standard plate weights. The Blaze comes with 210 pounds of resistance, but the buyer can choose upgrades to 310 or 410 pounds, for an added cost. The official Bowflex website does not list the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym as part of the current lineup of machines, but we did find the machine on sale through Amazon.com for $699.99 through a third-party retailer. There is a shipping and handling cost associated with ordering the machine.
List of Ingredients
Bowflex Blaze home gym, lat bar, leg extension/leg curl attachments, triple-function handgrips and ankle cuffs, 20-minute workout placard, and owner’s manual/fitness guide.
There are so many different styles of Bowflex; the buyer may be confused about the differences between one and another. The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym offers 60 exercises and a full bench. Most models include only a seat so the user cannot perform exercises like bench press. Power rod technology places tension on the muscle during all stages of movement, which is why this technology is considered superior to plate workout machines. Users with fitness backgrounds may find they must set the poundage down a bit because the muscles must control power rod movement.
The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym is huge. Assembly is required, which can take hours. Once assembled, the machine will not fit through a standard doorway. If the machine must be moved, it must be disassembled and reassembled in the new location. The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym measures 83″ or about 7-feet tall and weighs 214 pounds. Assembly requires more than one person to accomplish.
The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym is covered with a 5-year limited warranty on the power rods and a full, lifetime warranty against defects.

The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym is larger than most Bowflex stations. At more than $700, the dieter needs to be sure they will use the machine on a daily basis before making the purchase. The unit will come in multiple boxes, but each will weigh more than enough for one person to lift.
