You can find home gym equipment using Pinterest, the world’s catalogue of ideas. Just check out the inspiration boards. I found Bowflex and their Power Rod system in the Xtreme model 2 SE. It’s a good thing I was looking to spend a bundle as this one runs well over $1,000. But you get your money’s worth. You can change exercises quickly and easily with no cable changes. I love that. It has a ton of things to do and has added an ab crunch shoulder harness and ergonomically designed adjustable seat. Once you land on a reputable site like Fitness Select, you learn all the basic features and benefits.
210 lbs. of Power Rod® Resistance Standard
The Bowflex® Power Rod® gives you resistance, or weight, that feels as good as or better than free weights but without the inertia or risk of joint pain usually associated with free weights. The Bowflex Xtreme® 2 SE comes standard with 210 lbs. / 95 kg and is upgradeable up to 310 lbs. / 140 kg or 410 lbs. / 186 kg!

This Bowflex complete home gym is an all-in-one concept for people like me who want it easy but effective. I kept coming back to it online after searching wildly for hours for home gyms. I like the known brand name and solid reputation. That counts for a lot. When querying people on social media, I didn’t hear anything bad about it. It is nice you can confirm your choices so easily with the public. Ah, the wonders of the digital revolution. You can post photos and get feedback, use Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube to find out info and more. Thanks to the inspiration boards on Pinterest, I am happily working out on my own time and getting more toned every day. I don’t regret considering some other systems since all is going so well so far.
