Bowflex Max Trainer M7 Review
It’s hot, fresh, and a piece of equipment you’re going to want to check out! If you’re ready to take your workouts to a new level or are just looking for a little more excitement with your cardio routine, the Bowflex Max Trainer M7 is one machine you’ll definitely want to check out. This top-of-the-line offering by a company well renowned by many offers a zero impact workout that will torch fat faster than the treadmill, elliptical, or bike – combined. It’s been noted that you can burn the same number of calories on this machine in 7 minutes as you can on the treadmill in 15. This will save you plenty of time during the week; something we could all use a little more of.
One of the highlights of the Bowflex Max Trainer M7 is the fact that it can save up to four different user profiles, each one with its own customized program offering. This makes it perfect for those who are looking to improve upon their usability and jump right into their workout session and who are sharing the machine with other family members.
Users who frequently use the Bowflex machines also note they don’t feel nearly as tired after their workout sessions and this is thanks to the fact the joint impact is so much less. With a regular workout on the treadmill for instance, your joints ache after the session is over and you just want to sit down. With the Bowflex, this problem is non-existent.
The Max Trainer M7 has just launched in 2017, so is relatively new to the scene but is having a huge impact on those in the exercise field. People are already quite familiar with the Max Trainer M3 and Max Trainer M5, but now we are seeing many people move from those models to this model as they like what it has to offer.
What are some of the key benefits of going with an M7 over the previous machines?
- Greater selection of resistance levels (get 4 more levels on the M7 versus the M5)
- Greater list of preset workouts ready and waiting for you.
- Sport performance pedals built and designed to make your workout that much more comfortable
- Three year full coverage warranty
Our Favorite Features
What do we think really stands out about the Bowflex Max Trainer M7? Our favorite thing about this product is the higher level of resistance it provides. We feel this will really benefit those who are on top of their game and advancing their workout programs.
We also think that the fact provides more programmable options for those who are bored with their routine is a great thing as it’ll keep more people on track and actually doing their workouts.
With exercise drop off rates at an all-time high right now, it seems no one is able to maintain their exercise program so anything that helps them do so is going to be a huge advantage.
Here are some of the other key points we love about the max trainer:
- 20 Resistance Levels
- Preset Workout Variety
- Syncs with Bowflex Fitness App
- Zero Impact on Joints
- Wireless Heart Rate Monitoring
- Premium Grips
- Premium Pedals
- Water Bottle Holder
- 8 week Daily burn subscription included
- Media Shelf
- Four User Profiles

- Compact Machine Size
Our Least Favorite Features
There are plenty of advantages and a few downsides to choosing the Max Trainer M7:
- High price
- Not-so-fast assembly time
- Is this machine right for you? Just about anyone could benefit from a Max Trainer, but some people prefer less vigorous workouts. Bowflex TreadClimbers are a better match for such shoppers.
