- Resistance: This home gym uses Bowflex’s Power Rod Technology as an alternative to free weights. The Blaze comes with a resistance of up to 210 lbs., and an upgrade of either 310 lbs. or 410 lbs. can be purchased separately.
- Chest, Back, and Lats: It comes with a lat tower and angled lat bar, for developing the lats, and back & chest muscles. A triple-function hand-grip/ankle cuffs keep your pulldowns safe and steady.
- Core and Lower-Body Muscles: The Blaze also comes with leg extension/leg curl attachments for getting and maintaining strong leg muscles. The seat rail slides, so not only can you do leg presses on it, you can also perform rowing exercises. A lower pulley/squat station is also available for you to perform squats.
- Custom Workouts: You can create your own program or workout because the Blaze has provisions for multiple cable and pulley positions.
- Other features: a 20-minute workout placard, and an owner’s manual and fitness guide.
- The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym is 90 inches long, 38 inches wide, and 83 inches tall. When folded, it takes up 52 inches (length) by 38 inches (width). You can work those muscles within a workout area measuring 8 feet 4 inches x 6 feet 6 inches.
Easy Breezy Assembly
With an easy-to-follow manual, you don’t have to spend an entire day already working up a sweat by trying to figure out how to assemble this.
Versatile and Customized Exercises
Compared to other home gyms, the Blaze offers workouts that can be customized for people with different needs. It even has a workout placard for folks who are always in a rush, but always wanting to stay healthy. The seat, pulleys, and cables, as well as the hand-grips/ankle cuffs add more to it being very versatile, that even older folks can use it.
Because of the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym’s limited range for leg extensions, you might have to purchase cable extenders, if you are more than six feet tall. Either that, or, you can just skip the leg extensions and leg curls all together. Not!
Do you Need Space?
If you live in a small apartment, it might be difficult to even store this piece of equipment. The Bowflex Blaze Home Gym takes up a lot of storage space even when folded. More so, it eats up a lot of room when fully assembled.
The Illusion of Resistance
For the casual user, the weights are enough to fulfill exercise needs. However, those who are into strength training or who are looking into building some serious muscles would notice that 210 lbs. doesn’t feel like 210 lbs. It feels lighter. Even if you would purchase the 410-pounds upgrade, you would still notice a significant difference between the resistances created by the Bowflex trademark Power Rods and your regular free weights.
Nothing beats good old exercise. With the Bowflex Blaze Home Gym, you can do more than 60 exercises in the comfort of your own home, at your own time. It’s everything you need (and even more) in just one device.
