The recently released Bowflex PR1000 home gym is an economical piece of exercise equipment from a trusted company. Bowflex has been the leader in home gym equipment for many years and has offered the fitness minded public several different choices in home fitness equipment. With the PR1000 you get a machine that lets you do 30 different strength exercises.
Not as much as the new Bowflex PR3000 but plenty of choices for most people who want a good quality home gym without breaking the budget. You can find this home gym listed at a little over 500 dollars across the internet. The power rod resistance gives you the equivalent of up to 210 pounds of resistance. The variety of exercises you can perform on this machine range from aerobic rowing to bench presses to lat pulldowns.
You can get a full body workout with it. You can have the machine assembled for you but that cost quite a bit extra. You can save quite a bit of money by assembling it yourself with a bit of effort and patience. If you have not experienced working out with the power rods before it will probably feel a bit shaky to you until your muscles adjust to them. This is a great economical workout machine for most folks who want to build their strength and cardiovascular endurance.
The entire family should be able to enjoy it. On the other hand if you are a serious weightlifter or bodybuilder you might want to consider other models such as the PR3000 or even the top of the line Bowflex Revolution. But this home gym will meet the needs of most people very well.
