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!

    I am a single mom and could not find the time to get to the gym and could not get motivated to do workout videos. This is an awesome machine; who doesn't have 15 mins a day?!? I am really motivated by the burn rate and the tracking capability in the app. I am looking forward to getting back in shape!

      I love this mainly for the workout u get in less time.
      i used to be a gym rat. But with current job long hours, it was impossible. I am 55 and did not want to lose my mobility or muscle tone. I need to be in shape for my job. And this machine is everything i want it to be. Cant wait to have it for awhile and see the results i know i will see!!!

        My wife and I started using the MAX approx. 3 weeks ago and honestly started out slow but have increased our useage time each day we use it. I'm convinced that our motivation will also increase as we are seeing results already...I highly recommend this equipment for any type of athlete, person looking to drop a few pounds or anyone that wants to exercise in a low impact capacity.

        Comments about Bowflex MAX Trainer M5:

        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.

                Health issues kept me from any cardio for a while so starting out with the M5 was tough. I like tough. Solid, smooth machine I've come to expect from Bowflex. The near zero impact is the greatest. I have a bad knee that flares up sometime. The M5 has not caused any stress on it. I'm doing 15 minute workouts then hitting my Xtreme 2 without any knee pain. Awesome! Get one!

                I purchased this unit for my wife to rehab her knees and for me to get some much needed exercise. The M5 works great for me however the unit needs a lower resistance setting. I need to atually assist my wife to get the unit started and during her workout.

                Otherwise, I love the unit. It is a quality unit that provides a great workout.

                    A:

                    Hi Zippy! The distance between the two pedals, if they were directly parallel to one another, is around 3 inches. The distance between the "top" pedal and the "bottom" pedal, when the top pedal is at its highest point, is around 8 inches. Altogether, the pedals are 15 inches from the floor when they are at their highest point.

                    Hi Angie! No, it is not necessary to place the machine on a cardio mat, though doing so is nice in that it can help protect your flooring (divets from the machine, sweat from the user, etc).

                    Hello there! While the Bowflex MAX Trainer M5 is fairly quiet, there is some fan noise that comes from the machine that while not extremely loud, could over time wake someone sleeping in the same room, especially if they are a light sleeper.

                    While it is physically possible for a person who's weight exceeds the maximum user weight for the Bowflex MAX Trainer M5, this machine was never tested or designed for use by person's over 300lbs.

                    To calculate the minimum ceiling height you'll need to use this machine, add your height plus 15 inches, which is how high the pedals are from the floor at their highest point.

                    There really isn't any minimum or maximum height requirement to use the Bowflex MAX Trainer M5, aside from making sure that you have enough clearance during use so that you don't hit your head on the ceiling. To calculate the minimum ceiling height you'll need, add your height plus 15, as the pedals at their highest point are 15 inches from the floor. The MAX Trainers are not sold retail, only direct through Nautilus/Bowflex, so there isn't anywhere you can go to try it out ahead of time. However, one of my co-workers is 6'6" and has no trouble using the MAX Trainer M5.

                    Hello there! No, there isn't a "guest" profile on the Bowflex MAX Trainers. They come with only the two user profiles as outlined in their respective owner's manuals.
