Bowflex Training





Bowflex Review
Why Merlino Fitness Highly Recommends The Bowflex

I am sure you have seen the Bowflex infomercials replayed over and over on televison and wondered if this home strength training system is really that good. Don't sweat it! This home gym is far superior than any on the market. I was a doubter also until I attended IDEA's (International Fitness Professional Association) Personal Trainer Conference in New York City in February of 2001. Bowflex had a booth at the hotel fitness expo and was giving demostrations to personal trainers to show them why this machine is the safest and most effective on the market today.

Here are just a few reasons why the Bowflex is so good:

  1. It is safe on the joints and biomechanically correct - You do not need a spotter even when attempting to push or pull heavy resistance loads. The machine is even safe for those that may have joint issues like limited range of motion in the rotator cuff. Many injury rehabilitation moves can also be performed on the Bowflex.

  2. You can mimic almost any exercise performed on expensive commercial grade equipment like Cybex or Hammer Strength - The Bowflex allows you to work in varied planes regardless of your size or height to maximize the efficiency of your workouts.

  3. Increased load progression forces muscle to work harder through the range of motion - Unlike many machines or free weights, the Bowflex increases resistance through the range of motion. For example, when doing a Lat pulldown the load gradually gets tough as the bar is pulled towards the body which does not allow the muscle to rest during the range of motion. This is a great way to build quality muscle mass.

  4. You can easily transition between exercises and resistance - You can easily switch out the pulleys to move between exercises. If you are working out with a partner whose strength differs from yours it is easy to reset the weight load.

  5. Dual pulley action for strength symetry - Two cables force the left and right sides of the body to work independently on many exercises. For example on a chest fly each pectoral muscle has to work separately so over time you get stronger where you body is weaker creating muscular strength balance along the way.

  6. A great backup system for missed gym workouts and busy people - Let's face it, you can't make it to the gym every night and with the Bowflex the gym is open when you want it to be. Keep your muscles fresh and don't miss a beat.
