Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym
The Bowflex PR1000 home gym is a great way to strengthen your muscles and add a bit of cardio training to the mix with over 30 strength exercises and a built-in rowing station. With up to 210 pounds of Power Rod resistance, this versatile machine helps work the abs, arms, chest, back, shoulders, and lower body. It includes triple-function hand grips for lat pull-down, a horizontal bench press, and four-inch upholstered roller cushions for leg extension and leg curl exercises. The rowing machine rail also folds when you’re done with your workout

The PR1000 utilizes Bowflex’s patented Power Rods, which provide 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. You can hook one, two, three, four or all of your Power Rod units to the cable pulley system and go from as little as 5 pounds all the way up to 210 pounds of resistance.

They’re precisely manufactured from a high-tech composite material under the highest quality control measures, then sheathed and tested 4 separate times to ensure quality and durability. The Power Rod units are so strong, you can flex them repeatedly but you won’t be able to wear them out.

tagsCost of a Home Gym?

Quick(ish) overview of the main pieces of my home gym and how much it all cost. In the future I’d like to re-visit this video and discuss pros/cons of the equipment and if I’d change anything after I’ve gotten the chance to train on it for a bit.


Bodylastics is a complete home gym system that relies on elastic tubes for resistance to be used specifically for strength training. It is billed as one of the most affordable and portable gym alternatives versus a typical home gym. Elastic tubes are separated according to different strength levels designed to simulate different weights and optimize your workout time. This is a great product for men and woman.

The Bodylastics Max Tension Exercise Bands Super Fitness System is very simple to use. Preparing for a workout is so simple! You just attach the bands onto the handles and ankle straps. You can customize your workouts with 31 possible resistance levels. The Bodylastics system comes with a door anchor to create the best workout situation possible. Storing this gym is a piece of cake since the Bodylastics system comes with its very own storage bag.

The Bodylastics exercise system can also be used to target every part of the body, whether you’re looking to work the arms, back, legs, chest, stomach, or shoulders. The elastic tubes come in many different strengths and are color coded based on resistance levels. A black band is used to designate extra heavy resistance, a blue one for heavy resistance, a red band signifies light heavy resistance, a green band for medium resistance, and a yellow band offers light resistance.

When you purchase the Bodylastics Max Tension Exercise Bands Super System, you will receive everything you need to begin working out right away. It comes complete with five elastic tubes constructed of high quality latex ranging from five to 22 pounds of tension. Each tube has a clip system for easy attachment. Also included are handles designed to be attached to the tubes. They are made of high density plastic with soft foam in the middle for comfort. Ankle straps also come with the Bodylastics system so you can focus on working your legs. They are also designed for comfort since they are made of nylon and Velcro. As mentioned before, the system features a door anchor so you can position the system for hamstring curls, triceps extensions, and back row. Most of the Bodylastics system is pretty self explanatory, but it does include a user’s manual that gives suggestions on work positions and also comes with an instructional DVD.

Designed to be used by people of all ages with many different levels of workout experience, the Bodylastics system is a great product for people who want a home gym, but don’t want to make a big investment and/or don’t have a lot of spare room at home.

Are you skeptical that a $ 50 exercise product could work out all of your muscles as well as a Bowflex, Total Gym or Crossbow? You should be. But I am here to tell you that you will absolutely love this product because you are going to save a ton of money. You will be able to work your muscles to the max. All of the best exercises for the chest, arms, legs, back, shoulders and abs can be performed with this compact workout home gym system.

Our unique super system is a complete home gym that fits in a 2 pound bag and costs less than one payment for some of the most popular health clubs and home gyms like Bowflex. Click my link below in the author section and see more specials and information about ordering Bodylastics.
