Max Trainer Reviews: Pros & Cons and Coupons
The table above compares both Max Trainer models side by side. To get more details about each one, including pros & cons and the best deals, check out their quick summaries and full reviews below:
1) Highest Rated: Bowflex M5
Price: $1,799 - Best Price: $1,599 and Free Shipping ($150 off with coupon)
Coupon: Get Free Shipping (Save $150) by entering the coupon code found at the top of the exclusive M5 discount page (ends soon).
Pros: Burns a ton of calories, plenty of workout programs and resistance levels
Cons: More expensive, no built-in speakers, 2-year warranty
As the Editor's Choice, the M5 received the highest rating from our algorithm by far, and even competes with higher-priced elliptical models. Highly recommended.
2) Most Affordable: Bowflex M3
Price: $1,199 - Best Price: $999 with
$100 $50 flat rate shipping
Pros: Lowest price, very compact, burns a lot of calories quickly
Cons: 2 workout programs, 8 resistance levels, 1-year warranty
The most affordable Max Trainer available, the M3 is a great choice as an alternative to ellipticals in this price range. Bowflex trimmed some bells and whistles, but it's a good deal.
What sets Max Trainers apart?
By taking advantage of the same zero-impact workout of ellipticals, but combining it with the intensity of a stair stepper with 16 resistance levels, the Max Trainer burns up to 2.5x the calories in the same amount of time on an elliptical (according to an independent university study).
Plus, these machines are ultra-compact so they won't take up nearly as much room as a treadmill or elliptical, and the cool futuristic design makes it something you'll be proud to talk about when people come over.
Most importantly, the workout is great for burning a lot of calories in a short time (Bowflex recommends the Max Interval workout, which lasts just 14 minutes), you get an upper body workout too, and the gauge readout with calories burned and burn rate indicators keep you motivated.
All in all, the Max Trainer is a great choice for anyone looking for cardio exercise in their home.
Not sure which model to get? The Editor's Choice is the M5 because it has the most to offer at an affordable price.
