Product Description

The Bowflex PR1000 home gym is a great way to strengthen your muscles and add a bit of cardio training to the mix with over 30 strength exercises and a built-in rowing station. With up to 210 pounds of Power Rod resistance, this versatile machine helps work the abs, arms, chest, back, shoulders, and lower body. It includes triple-function hand grips for lat pull-down, a horizontal bench press, and four-inch upholstered roller cushions for leg extension and leg curl exercises. The rowing machine rail also folds when you're done with your workout

The PR1000 utilizes Bowflex's patented Power Rods, which provide resistance, or weight, that feels as good as or better than free weights--but without the inertia or risk of joint pain usually associated with free weights. You can hook one, two, three, four or all of your Power Rod units to the cable pulley system and go from as little as 5 pounds all the way up to 210 pounds of resistance.

They're precisely manufactured from a high-tech composite material under the highest quality control measures, then sheathed and tested 4 separate times to ensure quality and durability. The Power Rod units are so strong, you can flex them repeatedly but you won't be able to wear them out.

Upgraded to 410 lbs.... how to.
by Amazon Customer (5 out of 5 stars)
January 31, 2015

well made, and with a little warranty voiding custom work, can be made to work with the 310lb and 410 lb upgrade kits. See my pictures in the customer uploaded pictures section for my instructions on how i did it. i dont know how safe this is, so do this at your own risk. it works fine on my bowflex though.

Great product
by Rich S (4 out of 5 stars)
March 2, 2016

I bought this a year and a half ago and it has been great. I'm a 30 year old, former athlete that had fallen out of shape. This unit helped me build a little muscle and get back into formidable shape. I use it 2-3 times a week and it has held up well. However I will probably have to replace the resistance rods in the next 6 months to a year. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is that the rods will need replacing and the weight limit.

Bottom line, if you don't like going to the gym, want something that doesn't take up a ton of space and you're goal is not to enter a body building competition look no further.

Well worth what I paid.
by Solom01 (5 out of 5 stars)
August 8, 2017

I've had this for about 2 years. During that time I've used it every other day and it works as well as it did when I first got it. This isn't going to turn you into a body builder, but by using it for 1 hour workouts consistently it has done a great job of keeping me in decent shape. Like any exercise equipment it's going to take discipline and effort (if you think 15 minutes twice a week is going to work good luck), and the leg press simply doesn't have enough resistance for even a weak man, but outside of that it's well built, easy to use and has enough exercises to give your whole body a good workout. There was one broken piece when I got it, but there customer service got me a replacement piece quickly when I called them.

Great home gym
by MK (4 out of 5 stars)
March 19, 2017

Thanks to this machine I can finally get a consistent workout routine going. I did the gym thing for awhile, resistance bands for awhile, and a combo of free weights and kettlebells for awhile, but nothing really stuck. It's convenient, provides a solid set of exercises, and is priced well. That alone should give it five stars, but I have to ding it one because some exercises are a bit awkward to perform, and a handful of the leg exercises are too easily maxed out with the provided resistance. I supplement my leg workouts with kettlebells when the PR1000 doesn't cut it. Switching between resistance rods and exercise types is not as much of a nuisance as expected, which is nice. I ordered a set of ProSource fs-1908-pzzl Puzzle Exercise Mat EVA Foam Interlocking Tiles (Black, 24 Square Feet) which fit perfectly as well. All in all it's hard to find a better deal.

... decently made but I just cant get over how bad the bench is
by dan (2 out of 5 stars)
January 23, 2017

It's decently made but I just cant get over how bad the bench is. The base of the seat is held onto the rail but the back (larger part of the bench) just sits on top. It frequently falls/slides out from under me. As a whole the bench does not snap into any position. So its really just a balancing act; using your body weight to hold it in place. If I had known this I wouldnt have made the purchase but now that I have it, I'm going to make some warranty voiding modifications to make it a little more stable.

A versatile machine for a great price.
by Amazon Customer (4 out of 5 stars)
May 14, 2017

This is a great machine for the price. I'd highly recommend this for anyone who is new to fitness or for anyone who is moderately active.

- Lightweight.
- Assembly wasn't terrible. I took my time - from cutting open the box to completion took 2.5 hours.
- Fairly versatile. As I said above - if you're new to fitness or moderately active, this machine will probably be satisfactory. If you're a serious body builder, this probably isn't for you.

- Apparently this machine isn't designed for the 310 lb upgrade. I didn't realize this when I made the purchase.
- The lower body workouts are not very challenging. I can easily max out the leg press (I'm a 200 lb male).
- Changing the configurations is time consuming (e.g. going from a bench press to a tricep pushdown).

Overall I'm satisfied with the purchase, although I'd probably spend a little extra and purchase a model that is designed for the 310 & 410 lb upgrades.

Great Entry Machine - Don't Pass It Up
by Sammo123321 (5 out of 5 stars)
October 11, 2017

Great home gym! Really enjoy working out on this system. I've had it since April 2017 (its now Sept 2017) and still functions like new. All rods seem well made and (as far as I can tell) haven't lost resistance. Took around two hours to setup by myself. The shipping box it came in was VERY rough and damaged. Was afraid the equipment inside would have been hurt, but thankfully everything was intact. Definitely have lost weight and gained muscle with this gym.

Really great workout system for a killer price.
by Modred189 (4 out of 5 stars)
December 1, 2016

Assembly: The assembly instructions were adequate. The problem is that there are about 7 sizes of bolt, and many of them are VERY close in size to one another. This makes it somewhat tedious to make sure you have the right bolt at each step.It didn't help that they shipped with the nuts attached to them, meaning the length of similar-length bolts was often obscured.

That said, it took me about an hour to do it alone, and I was taking my time, for sure.

Workout: The workout was as provided. The way the powerbars provide resistance takes some tie to get used to, but they are smooth operating, and adjusting weight is very simple.

One BIG minus: there does not appear to be any way to secure the long seat rail in the vertical position. This make sit relatively dangerous to have it up in an area small children can access.

Easy assembly. Nice product.
by AJ430 (5 out of 5 stars)
August 27, 2017

I have enjoyed this very much. It's a quality product and very easy to assemble. When I opened the box, I was slightly overwhelmed with the amount of parts, but the directions were easy to follow. I think my total assembly time was less than two hours with breaks. Since I assembled it, I have used it very much and it's been working great!

Would have been great if part were labeled
by Amazon Customer (5 out of 5 stars)
August 24, 2017

Very well made. Took me about 2 hours to put together. The instructions stink! Parts are not labeled, but easy to get through it if you pay attention to the schematics. The bolts are the worst part because they are of similar sizes and several times I had to undo something I just did. Have a tape measure handy and measure the bolts (without the heads) to be sure which one you need for that step.
