This machine is awesome! It's hard to not get addicted to. I try to stick to strength training (with my SelectTech 552's) one day, and jump on my M5 the next. I love the high-intensity interval training. I tried to do HIIT on my old elliptical but felt like I was going to fly off. My new M5 is a kick butt sweat'n good time! Better think about buying the floor mat, otherwise you might leave a stain on the carpet from all of the sweat that pours off of your body...lol! I like how you can adjust the programs within your profile. Great programs to choose from. I love having the two different handle positions during active and rest periods. Grabbing the top handles when going all out during HIIT I feel like I can lean into it and go as hard as possible on a solid machine. I can sure feel the workout in my abs. I like using the wireless heart rate monitor, it's a great way to see your heart rate on the screen so as to keep your heart in the range needed. Below asks if I would recommend this to a friend...I tell everyone about this machine and have a few friends looking to buy one. I look forward to the many years of continued use on my Max Trainer. Thanks Bowflex!

        Comments about Bowflex MAX Trainer M5:

        Greatest machine ever I have had treadmills step climber elliptical and exercise bike but none of them compare to the max trainer I only wish it came out sooner needless to say I am very happy with this. I started out with only two minutes as I haven't exercised in a long time now I'm up to 20 minutes I use it every day my wife and son are also happy with it.
        I hope it lasts a long time as it's getting a lot a use it is very well built I love all the extra features that comes with it. I will never give up my max trainer I bragged to my friends and I also posts on face book on how great this machine is.
        Great job on your new machine thank you

            I've been using the max interval training setting and love it. I'm drenched when I get off the machine. I'm still trying to figure out how to change the intensity and length of rest and active looks simple in the book then I forget to change before I start my workout. I think this is a great machine and sometimes use it morning and evening or just one or the other if I choose to do a video workout that day. Thanks Bowflex for creating a machine with great workout options that is not too bulky and definitely not time consuming!

            Comments about Bowflex MAX Trainer M5:

            I use my M5 on a daily basis. Sometimes I'm beckoned to the machine a second time on certain days. I feel the machine challenges me by putting the numbers in my face and driving me to top what I'd done a minute before. The machine itself is so sleek and stylized you have a hard time avoiding it. I searched for months before finding the M5 and fell in love immediately. The Max Trainer app is the one thing that turned me off as it was so pumped up on the advertisement videos. Hopefully bugs get worked out because I think it would add so much to the experience.

            Bought this as a last-ditch effort to start exercising regularly. It is set up in my home office, where I spend 9-10 hours every day. I can use it during some meetings, which is great! Unfortunately, the resistance level is higher than my body is ready for, so I'm using it 5 minutes several times a day until I build up my muscles and endurance. I am in my 50's and used to walking about 3.5 mph, but not particularly fit otherwise.

            From a regular treadmill I have Achilles tendinitis and found this was best for me as it was low impact.

            Just trying to get into better shape and I think with regular use and discipline this will do the job and I don't have to pay for gym membership or leave the house!

            The machine that I received was so noisy when I first started using it, that I was going to return it.
            But after a month of use, it has gotten less noisy. Not quite by no means, but bearable.

              I'm looking for a trainer that I can use whist watching a show on my tablet. I see that this machine has a shelf to hold a tablet, but it appears from the images that you'd have to look almost straight down in order to watch the screen. Does anyone have any experience with using the device shelf on the M5 or M3 in this manner? Have you noticed any neck strain due to it's placement? Thanks for any advice you can offer!

              My husband and I are trying to lose weight, we are both very out of shape. My husband is 6' and 290 and I am 5'3" 280, we need low impact for our knees and backs, but something that we can do. We have been looking at a tread climber, but the cost has stopped us. When we saw this product and price we thought is was still a little pricey but affordable. Would this product work for some one just starting out with some serious weight to lose?

                Hello there! We highly recommend that you check with your doctor regarding your particular exercise needs. The Bowflex MAX Trainer M5 is a very popular machine, largely because it is designed to be very low impact. However, your experience is subjective, so we cannot determine whether or not the machine would be right for you. We highly recommend seeking professional assistance before making any decisions regarding a purchase.

                Hi Larry! The Bowflex MAX Trainer M5 offers a compact, upright design that provides a high-intensity workout in a shorter period of time (14 minute MAX interval workout vs 30 minutes on the TreadClimber). The MAX Trainer M5 also comes with a free app that (available for applicable iOS Apple and Android devices) that syncs with your machine to allow you another way to track and monitor your progress.

              What size is the foot pedal? I wear size 14 mens shoes and wondering if foot pedals are long enough to support that size.

                Hi DJ! The dimensions of the pedals on the Bowflex MAX Trainers are approximately 13.5" L x 7.5" W.

                We highly recommend that you check with your doctor regarding your particular exercise needs. The Bowflex MAX Trainer M5 is a very popular machine, largely because it is designed to be very low impact. However, your experience is subjective, so we cannot determine whether or not the machine would be right for you. We highly recommend seeking professional assistance before making any decisions regarding a purchase.
