Bowflex Max Trainer has high intensity of stair climber and low impact of elliptical machine

This exercise machine blends the elliptical and stair climber machines. The combination of these two gives a high-intensity, low-impact workout. This machine had a steep exercise incline angle, so it has a small foot-print (49″ L x 30.5″ W x 65.5″ H) and can fit into a small space. Your smartphone can sync to a tracking app or Apple’s Health Kit. The power cord is not very long. I happen to love both types of machines… so I love this exercise machine.

The machines require a little assembly. Both Bowflex and Amazon will assemble them for you for a fee. The models listed below have the option to add the assembly into your order. The M6 and M8 can be bought from Bowflex, but the M5 and M7 cannot.

These two are the higher end models with more bells and whistles
