Bowflex Xceed Alternatives

I’m sorry to inform you that the Bowflex Xceed Home Gym is temporarily out of stock. It will probably be available again in couple weeks. If you can’t wait that long, here is a list of other home gyms you might want to consider to get a head start on building your beach body. These aren’t full, detailed home gym reviews, just quick overviews of gyms comparable to the Bowflex Xceed Home Gym.

Stamina Viper Leverage System Home Gym
I’m surprised to say this, but Stamina Fitness did an excellent job with the Viper Home Gym. It uses free weights for resistance as opposed the much easier to use resistance rod system. Users put effective workouts together that target chest, arms, back and legs. It’s about a hundred bucks more than the Bowflex Xceed and will cost even more if you don’t already have a free weight system. But the Stamina Viper Home Gym is a little more versatile.

Body Solid EXM 1500s Home Gym
This is probably the best basic home gym out there. The Body Solid EXM 1500s uses weight stacks to provide as much as 160 lbs. of resistance. I personally prefer weight stack resistance over resistance bands, it just feels a lot smoother to me. If weight stacks are your thing and you’re looking to build large muscles or tone, you can definitely do it with the Body Solid EXM 1500s.

Bowflex Xtreme XTLU Home Gym
The Bowflex Xtreme XTLU Home Gym is a more feature packed version of the Bowflex Xceed. Anything you can do with the Bowflex Xceed you can do with the Bowflex Xtreme XTLU and more. If you had your heart set on a Bowflex Xceed Home Gym, this is the next best alternative.

Bowflex Motivator Home Gym
Like the Bowflex Xceed, the Bowflex Motivator is employs a resistance band based system to provide resistance. It’s not an exact replica in terms of features, but it’s the exact same price as the Bowflex Xceed and you may even prefer it! Give it a chance and check it out.

Well, I’m very sorry the Bowflex Xceed Home Gym is out of stock. I’ll post a note on here when it’s back in stock. If you can’t wait a few weeks for it to come back you should really take a look at these home gyms. They’re closest in price and features to the Bowflex Xceed.
