Weight-bearing exercise has been touted as one of the most important tools for weight loss, fitness and overall health, but not all people are keen on lifting dumbbells and barbells. Resistance products fill the gap between free weights and no weights and you may be surprised by just how many popular fitness programs utilize resistance products for the ultimate burn.

One of the most popular resistance brands on the market is Bowflex. Bowflex uses resistance technology to create a free-weight style workout machine – but there are multiple machines to choose from and some are no longer listed on the official website. That’s where we come in. We have reviews for Bowflex machines – newer and older – so you know exactly what to expect from your resistance workout.

Resistance products are not limited to home gyms like the Weider X Factor Door Gym or TRX training products. You can also workout with some of the most popular workout programs, including Beachbody programs, with resistance bands. Resistance bands range from lightweight for beginners to extreme for advanced users. You may be surprised by just how intense a workout with resistance bands can be.

Our reviews on resistance products don’t stop with bands and machines. We’ve also reviewed resistance bikes like the Schwinn Airdyne Upright and rowers like the Waterrower – both providing increased workout intensity with resistance technology.
