You’ve probably heard the Bowflex name before, but you probably haven’t ever associated the name with treadmills. The name Bowflex is more synonymous with body strengthening equipment, but they are breaking into new territories. Bowflex is a subsidiary of Nautilus, which is the second largest maker of exercise equipment in the world. The other brands they own include Schwinn, Stairmaster and Trimline, so Bowflex is backed by a solid company.
There are three different models of Bowflex treadmills: the 3, 5, and 7 Series. The prices are as follows: 3 Series $999, 5 Series $1, 299, and the 7 Series $1, 399; so they are all priced to be in the mid-range market. This is a market that is already quite crowded, which is largely due to the growing popularity of home fitness equipment. There are some features, especially on the 5 and 7 Series, that should allow Bowflex treadmills to make a name for themselves in the market.
One of the great features of the 5 and 7 Series is its 60” running platform. This feature is especially advantageous for those people who are taller or for serious runners who want to lengthen their stride. The deck also gives adequate cushioning, and it can incline up to a 12% grade. Unfortunately, the deck does not have a decline mode.

I worded that wrong2010-12-31 08:37:45 by LOVE-AQHA
When I said "nice gym". He just wants one with serious machines and free weights. Not one Bowflex and a Sams Club treadmill. He's not that demanding as it must sound to you all.
I see the favorite buzz word here is "enabler"...
We took his car, his phone, his computer, and told him that he could either find a friend to support him or get help.
He asked for patience from us an...that physical activity is an overall healthy activity for mind and body. Geez
To say that he's not serious is a great observation. Yeah, you'll be able to pat yourself on the back just about every time you say that to an addict because they fail at everything 95% of the time...
Congrats smart one.
Nobody is "serious" who tries to kick their habits that they have come to love...
Need serious help2007-09-28 03:42:05 by coyotetu
I've tried crash diets, I've tried reading labels for hours, it's only resulted in small short-term losses and hours wasted in the store. Let me tell you right now, I'm a very, very heavy-set person, I'm currently 430 pounds.
I've lost some before now from weightlifting, but before that I seemed to equalize around 450 or so. I've gained a good amount of strength, and that may be offsetting...d be able to continue it after I reach my goal. Money is a short term object, as I'm currently unemployed, but I hope to fix that shortly. Budget would be, 20 dollars a day?
Just a rudimentary shopping list, I'm horrible at shopping for myself, which probably got me here in the first place.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to those that took the time to read this.
What I do and it has worked2007-02-05 10:58:25 by climber703
Here's what I did. It is sort of the whole picture. i had to set realistic goals for myself. I used to set unrealistic goals and then when I didn't meet them I'd get frustrated and stop trying.
First goal was to lose weight and I am quite happy with only loosing 2 pounds a month as long as I am having progress I am ok.
The exercise I do now is I swim at least 3 times a week. I am up...festyle change. i'm not doing this to loose weight I'm doing it because it feels good now and I like what I feel like after I exercise. Loosing weight is a side benefit. when I focused on the weight loss I failed continually. If I don't want to be fat and yo yo all the time I have to have a lifestyle change that becomes part of me just like the lifestyle change I had when I began gaining weight.
