Okay so here's my review. I actually love this machine. I gave it 4 stars only because people who are as out of shape as I was when I first got on this machine will know just how out of shape they truly are. This machine on level 1 kicked my butt! I am now able to do the max interval workout as well as the fat burn & calorie burn workout. I have had the machine a little over 5 weeks now and I have dropped 23 pounds. I am following the nutritional plan that is included in the manual with the M5 and can say it has helped a lot. I eat a lot more lean meats, load up on vegetables because they are a smart carbohydrate, more water than what can fill a pool, and stay away from snack foods and trigger foods. The base is actually sturdy, some people may not know they can adjust the feet on the bottom. I haven't had the squealing noise come from the machine so I hope that doesn't happen. The one problem I have with the machine is the app you use with the M5. It just doesn't work wright sometimes. My wife has an iphone 6 and I have an htc one max. So both android and ios have some issues that need to be worked out. I'm also am not sure the calorie counter is accurate because I was at 279 pounds when I started and now I am at 256 pounds now and I can tell you it sure feels a lot more than 180 calories being burned in 15 minutes, but hey it may be right.

The pictures in the mirror is where I am today. The one with my wife and a friend are when I was my heaviest. The black vest makes me look thinner but trust me I was bigger than what the picture shows.

Comments about Bowflex Max Trainer M5:

I am 53 years old and have had 3 back surgeries; I use to be an avid power walker but with life changes and job demands to give it a full hour + was just way too much time. I was looking for a piece of equipment that was low impact yet gives you an intense workout in less time. I have found it in the MAX! I am building up endurance and seeing my body transform. I love this machine!!

      This equipment was easier than anticipated to assemble. It took a novice like myself working at a steady pace less than 2 hours to complete. The equipment is well designed both physically & mechanically.

      I recommend if you are a novice like myself you start slow for a few weeks before you jump into more advanced feature/options as it will wipe you out.

      I feel great after 15 minutes each with my treadmill & M5.

        Comments about Bowflex Max Trainer M5:

        I like the pre-programmed routines, and have been alternating them. The design and performance are well thought out. It's easy to move around if you have to. I initially thought the exercise would be similar to an elliptical machine, but it is more like a stepper. However, it is still low / no impact. I can feel that I am working out my legs, back, arms, and shoulders with each use.
        I have noticed that if the foot platforms stop in a certain position at the end of a workout, the machine can be hard to get going the next time. Only happened a few times. I now always position them at extremes at the end of a session.
        The heart rate chest strap that was included with the machine takes a while to display a heart rate after a workout has been started. Also, the heart rate seems to be lower than it actually is. I feel this contributes to registering fewer calories burned. I have also used a Polar brand strap that syncs with my I-Phone. My heart rate is consistently higher with that strap.
        I thought that the machine would sync with the Bowflex app on my phone during a workout. So far, I have only been able to get it to sync and download data to the app after the workout. This simply updates the number of workouts, and the stats from each so they can be tracked over time.

                Hello! Each will burn calories equally. It's just a matter of how quickly you want to burn them. The MAX Trainer is built to burn calories in the quickest way possible. The Treadclimber, while still burning calories at a fairly high rate, the burns calories a little slower.

                For example, if you use each machine for 14 minutes you will burn more calories on the MAX Trainer because the intensity is much higher. Some people aren't comfortable with this intensity and prefer something they can do with a little more ease. It's really a matter of personal preference and which machine you will continue to use over and over. Thank you!
