My wife and I received our Max 5 trainer over a week now. So far the only down side is where the bottle holder is located, it's hard to reach.
Now for the good news, first if you can afford the M5 it's worth the extra money. Second this is by far the best workout on a cardio machine I've ever experienced.
The 14 minute workout is definitely a challenge I was able to complete 2 and burned over 500 calories.
I was skeptical at first but after considering for 2 months, my wife and I decided to go for it and I am so glad we did.
Lastly my wife has challenges from arthritis and the impact is minimal.
I am now a Bowflex family member.
I purchased the 552 weights stand and looking to feel my home gym with more. Thanks Bowflex Max5.
It's only been only a few days. I'll check in with you after 30 days to share our results.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Are you still happy with the M5?
