Bowflex M3

Bowflex M3 Max Trainer Detailed Overview

The Bowflex M3 is the entry-level model in the Max Trainer series of fitness equipment by BowFlex. This model is fairly affordable at just under $1,000, and features a highly unique design that promises the ability to burn up to 2.5x more calories overall while engaging the upper body 80% more than other fitness equipment.

The Bowflex M3 is jam-packed with the power and drive needed to truly challenge the user. Looking at the overall design of the Bowflex M3, users will notice that unlike a treadmill, the Max Trainer has virtually zero impact. There is also reduced impact on injury-prone regions like back, knees, etc. with this machine, leaving you more time to worry about strong arms and a trimmer waistline than about debilitating physical stress as a result of “getting in shape.” Using the Bowflex M3 guarantees your joints will experience 200% less impact than running.

The Bowflex M3 is not like a traditional elliptical trainer, stair climber, or treadmill, so there are some features unique to this piece of equipment, but also some similarities. Like an elliptical trainer, you can adjust the resistance. The Bowflex M3 offers 8 resistance levels that can be changed manually using the dial on the handlebars. Unlike other pieces of workout equipment, you have the ability to workout at an intensity that is hard to find with other trainers. The Bowflex M3 can withstand weights of up to 300 pounds as well.

Coming to the console area, you will find a slightly more “non-traditional” set-up, with no display screen at all. There are just a few program controls and the turn dial for resistance, but that’s pretty much it. To monitor heart rate, a chest strap is included but there are no contact heart rate grips. Users do have access to 2 built-in workout programs and 2 user profiles, a well as a water bottle holder and media shelf to store your favorite devices. This model lacks any audio capabilities or entertainment offerings, but there is a media shelf to use your own device for entertainment or music.

Most of us have seen those Bowflex commercials with those “too-good-to-be-true” results. Well, we confirmed that Bowflex only uses real world people (not actors) with REAL testimonials. That gave us some serious peace of mind.

The Bottom Line

As the Bowflex M3 is specifically designed to be compact with slim to no impact on your joints, it is a desirable machine. Beyond this, it is known to encourage the burn of as many calories as possible, leaving your workouts more effective and emotionally providing you with a better feeling of accomplishment. This will spur you on to your next day of exercise, unlike traditional machines that can leave the user feeling exhausted and discouraged. There is really nothing on the market to compare to a Max Trainer, although it does fall somewhere between an elliptical and stair stepper. The Bowflex M3 specifically comes with two different workout programs. Some may argue this is a pretty sparse offering, but fortunately the ones offered are the ones you would likely use the most anyhow. Bowflex com Store 

Choose from eight different resistance levels that keep you challenged and in shape – avoiding the cliché plateau that tends to occur after a few months of losing weight rapidly. When it comes to optimal personal fitness, Bowflex’s Max Trainer Bowflex M3 is where it’s at. The only better option may be the Max Trainer M5, although this one costs more money. For those looking for a simple, straight forward machine without a high learning curve, the Max Trainer Bowflex M3 is just the ticket. You’ll love its portability, convenient features like a media shelf and cup holder – and most of all how good it makes you look and feel.

BURN
2.5X MORE CALORIES BURNED EVERY MINUTE‡
An independent study pitted MAX against treadmills, steppers, and ellipticals with users working out at the same pace and intensity. In the end, users burned more calories on MAX than every cardio machine tested by up to 2.5X per minute!‡ In fact, trial users have burned up to 600 calories or more in 30 minutes. How's that for MAX burn?

TIME
LESS TIME WITH MAX RESULTS
Research tells us that "lack of time" is the #1 barrier to working out. That's why the breakthrough Max Interval workout was designed for those with speed in mind. You'll get all the cardio benefits of a much longer workout in just 14 minutes. Strengthen your heart and lungs and improve your endurance and stamina — all while incinerating calories faster than you ever thought possible.

MOTIVATION
SEE YOUR BURN AS IT'S HAPPENING
MAX's unique BURN RATE display puts you in control, showing you exactly how many calories you're burning every minute and setting activity level targets throughout your workout. It's an incredibly motivating tool that pushes you to challenge yourself in every workout. Plus, MAXimize and track every workout with the free Max Trainer® App (Android / iOS), which can sync with Apple Health™.

FULL BODY
MAX ENGAGES IT ALL
Ellipticals claim to be a full body workout, but they don't come close to MAX. Testing in the lab showed it engaged more core and lower body muscles than ellipticals and up to 80% more upper body.‡ Now you can get more done in less time.

COMFORT
VIRTUALLY ZERO IMPACT
MAX is gentle on your body, but tough on calories. Running at even a moderate speed produces up to 200% more impact on your body than a Max Trainer® workout.‡ That's training smarter — not harder.

AFTERBURN
IT KEEPS GOING... AND GOING...
Burn now and burn later. The 14-minute Max Interval workout uses simple science to deliver very complex (and amazing) results. Small bursts of activity followed by longer periods of rest keep your body guessing and ramp up your metabolism to burn additional calories for hours after your workout.
