Bowflex Max Trainer M5 Review

Quick Introduction

Do you have 14 minutes to spare?  14 minutes to get into tip-top shape, ladies and gents?  This amazing machine will get you into great shape in a fraction of the time, and at a cost that’s quite reasonable, if you ask us.

With the Bowflex M5 you will get a hybrid training machine that gives you a great cardiovascular workout, that’s low impact and burns up to 2.5x more calories! Some of our favourite features with the M5 Max Trainer is the outstanding calorie burner in just 14 minutes, 8 awesome programs to burn off even more calories,   computer-controlled resistance, compact design, and it is low impact! 

In addition to all the features listed above, we love the fact that you can sync via Bluetooth to the Max Trainer app to keep track of all your progress!  And trust us, you’ll make tons of progress with this great machine.


  • Zero Impact: Zero impact to those all so important joints!
  • Higher Intensity: Zero impact lets you go a little bit harder, and the harder you go, the better the burn!
  • Smartphone Connectivity: Connect via Bluetooth to the Max Trainer app.
  • Upper Body Workout: The design of the Max Trainer, gives you a great upper body workout, also enabling the burn!
  • Resistance Galore: 16 levels of resistance on the Max Trainer, letting you have a wide range of levels – we suggest you work your way up to those higher levels, bruv.
  • 9 Preset Workouts: 9 intense workouts to choose from (Manual, MAX Interval, Smart MAX Interval, Calorie Burn, Fat Burn, Calorie Goal, Stairs, Steady State, Fitness Test)
  • Multi-User Profiles: Ability to set up two different profiles on the Max Trainer
  • Compact: Compact design is perfect; works for your 1 bed flat in London Town, or even if you are staying in Clarence House!
  • 5x the burn: Burn 2.5x the calories, need we say more!!!!


  • Assembly: We have received some feedback that assembly maybe a tad bit challenging for some, however it can be done in a hour or so
  • Warranty: 2 years – which is a little lacking considering the price point
  • Difficult: Even at the lower resistance levels, some may find this to be too difficult

Warranty Summary

The Bowflex Max Trainer M5 comes with:

  • 2 years – on entire machine

Bottom Line

Great hybrid trainer, I’ll be back in 14 minutes – going to go burn 2.5x the calories!
