Well, it’s time to finish up my Bowflex Home Gym Reviews with the Bowflex PR3000 Home Gym. Ahhh, just about 450 more words and it’s off to huntingon beach for some boogey boarding! Well, let’s dive right in to it. The Bowflex PR3000 Home Gym retails for about $999 on Amazon.com. What does all the dough buy you? Well quite a bit. You can perform more than 50 different exercises and is built with several design features to make using the Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym a breeze.
First off you get 210 lbs. of weight resistance. That’s going to be enough weight to beef up just about any football player who isn’t in college or the pros…and if you are in the pros you probably have free access to professional grade equipment anyway. The Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym delivers the resistance via a power rod system. Basically, you’re bending metal. If 210 lbs. still isn’t enough for you, there’s an upgrade that will add a hundred pounds of resistance for a total of 310 lbs. of power rod resistance.
One thing just about everyone likes about the Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym is the no change pulley system. That’s right, I said no change. That means you don’t have to spend so much time bothering with the pulley system when all you want to do is start your routine and finish. Believe me, nobody appreciates this feature more than me! Bowflex is really good at identifying the suck parts of using fitness equipments and making them better or more bearable.
One reason to buy a home gym that uses power rods over a selectorized home gym that uses weight plates to provide resistance is the weight itself. If you live in an apartment all that pounding of the plates and heavy machinery can wear on your building and neighbors. If you need to be quiet during your workouts for the sake of your neighbors I can’t think of anything quieter!
Overall the Bowflex PR3000 Home Gym is one of the better home gyms in the $1000 range. It comes with 210 lbs. of resistance and users can work out all major muscle groups in several different ways. The no-change-pulley-system is a huge draw for just about everyone. If you hate messing with all those chains and wires in the middle of a workout I strongly suggest clicking on the product link to Amazon and ordering a Bowflex PR3000 Home Gym. If that’s not enough to sell you on the Bowflex PR3000 Home Gym it’s lighter than conventional gyms that use weight stacks and consequently, makes hardly a sound because there are no weight plates clanking around. All around, a very well made and well thought out piece of fitness equipment.
