Bowflex Ultimate® 2 - Overall Review

By: Lorna Goldsborough

The Bowflex Ultimate® 2 home gym is the top-of-the-line model for Bowflex. Overall, customer reviews rate this home gym by Bowflex® high on the scale regarding durability, comfort and the quality of features.

Some of the pros of this model include:

There are 95 different exercises available which means there are options for every part of your body; arms, legs and your core.
It comes with a 12-year warranty. Bowflex® stands behind their product 100%.

It comes standard with 310 pounds of resistance (with an option to upgrade to 410 pounds).

It folds and rolls for convenient storage which means you can use it in one room and store it in another if space is a challenge for you.
The pulley system provides great resistance while delivering a smooth, quiet operation.

It comes with a six-week guarantee: if you aren't satisfied, return the home gym for a full refund, minus the cost of shipping and handling.

A workout poster, training manual, DVD, and instructional
video are included with the purchase. These are great tools that enable you to get the most from your Bowflex Ultimate® 2 home gym.
Power Rod® technology is one-of-a-kind and promises a no-time-limit warranty on the Rods.

A beginner can learn how to operate this machine in a short period of time.

The squat station is fantastic. It ensures proper posture while doing a squat and prevents 'cheating', therefore resulting in the best movement possible.

An in-home gym is so convenient. Many Bowflex® owners rave about not having to travel to the gym to exercise. It is right there and ready to use at any time.

A few cons that owners reported:

The upgrade to 410 pounds of Power Rod® resistance is an extra cost. Just include it with the original purchase instead of tacking on another cost.

Yes, the machine folds and rolls, but for some women, it is heavy and bulky and not easily rolled over carpet. In addition, Bowflex® asks for another $100 to get the mat that is placed underneath your machine to prevent damage to carpets and floors. The mat should be included in the purchase price of the home gym.

A few owners mentioned that it took nearly 16 hours to put this machine together, not the mere 4 hours the company mentions in its advertising. (Be prepared to take the time to devote to assembly of your home gym.)

Overall, customers who purchased and own a Bowflex Ultimate® 2 home gym are very happy with the machine and with their personal results. It comes highly recommended.
