Great overall body workout!

Workouts can be as easy as you want or as hard as you want! Work out the upper body more, or use your legs more or both at the same time plus the coaches if you use them are great incentives to keep your reaching new heights of your work out! I keep pushing myself and my endurance is getting a lot better over the last two months plus I sleep better! I’ve been looking for a machine that does it all so THANKS BOWFLEX!!

Love my Max Trainer- app needs a little more.

First off I love my Max Trainer M5U!! I just wish the the app paid subscription adjusted the speed and resistance based on previous workouts. I also wish it connected to my Apple health. My only complaint is the calories burned seems really low. My last workout for 9 min and showed 29 calories, while using my Apple Watch it showed 89 calories for the same workout. I would think it would be closer and it’s a pain to remember to start my watch since it don’t sync to Apple health. I also noticed a few people having trouble with the GR strap connecting. Mine (arm band) does not connect to my machine even though blue tooth is on, but connects to the Max app on my phone without any issue. Other then that great machine and a good app!

Hello Rigorouslogik, thank you very much for being a customer and for your review! We do appreciate it!

If you have the Max Intelligence subscription, and aren't already, make sure to check out the Custom workouts. We don't allow external sources to control certain settings on our machines, but the workouts will adjust based on your exercise performance and Fitness Assessment.

For calorie calculations, a lot of different formulas are in use anymore so things will not typically match up between different sources, but results should not be drastically different. Not receiving heart rate data may be throwing things off though.

For the Bluetooth Heart Rate monitors for the M6 and M8, they are intended to be connected directly to your Max Trainer. Being connected to your mobile device instead may interfere with its use. We're happy to figure out what is going on here for you so please give us a call at 800-605-3369, Monday through Friday, 6 AM to 5 PM Pacific.

We're constantly working on, and making improvements to, our app so hopefully we have expanded support for options like linked services ( Apple Health, Google Fit, etc. ) soon. Thanks again for your business and support and we wish you all the best! - Bowflex Team

Pretty good - Suggestions

I’d like to see the subscription plan offer recommended resistance level’s for new workouts based off that weeks performance or even the last couple days.

Another good suggestion would be to have the ability to delete a workout from the journal. I sometimes need to jump off when only a couple minutes into a workout for whatever reason. It recorder that workout as a completion, which I do not want on the journal. I typically start over and complete.

Good app so far, a little pricey for what it is offering. I’d give it 3.5 starts now, hope it get better moving forward!

Hey sabbondanza, thank you very much for your review and suggestions! I think something like a weekly report with recommendations on where to go next could be a really cool feature. I will definitely pass this information.

Good news regarding the ability to delete individual workouts as well! I do know this feature is coming at some point for the new M6 and M8. The new consoles can even be updated through the app so whether it requires an app update, firmware update, or both, this is something we will be adding down the road. We do apologize for any brief workout snippets cluttering things up in the meantime, but if anything, they are tracking and recording activity you did take and calories you did burn :-)

Thanks for your feedback and good luck on your fitness journey! - Clayton, Bowflex Team
