Bowflex HVT Review
First, it supports both cardio training and strength training, providing a well balanced workout routine that will dramatically enhance your physique. Whether you want to build muscle, burn fat, or just gain functional strength to use day-to0day, the Bowflex HVT can do it all!
The machine’s remarkable workout based around the concept of low impact ellipticals, providing 150 different exercises designed to keep the body strong while still protecting the knees, spine, and joints from harsh impact and injury.
When all of these exercises are combined, you get a very smooth and continuous motion called ‘hybrid velocity training’ (or HVT). You might find that this is unlike any other workout you’ve done before and it’s one that you’ll be excited to do each and every day.
What really sets the Bowflex HVT apart from some of the other more traditional weight focused home gyms the smooth magnetic resistance system, which provides a far different user experience than traditional weight stacks would.
In just 20 minutes, you can get a total body workout that will leave you feeling energized and strong. Yet, you’ll also recover quickly and feel great the next day. Users of this machine often state that they don’t suffer from nearly the same degree of soreness as they from their traditional gym workout sessions.
The Bowflex HVT also takes up far less space than a typical home gym because it does away with the traditional resistance stacks. They add quite a bit of space and of course make the machine exceptionally heavy. Instead, you get a sleek look with the HVT and a machine that is easy to use and adjust. To adjust the resistance, you simply turn a dial and select between different resistance modes. This allows you to easily advance your workouts and become stronger over time.
What’s even better is that this machine comes with the capacity to support the official Bowflex HVT app, which offers you fifty workout videos that guide you through a variety of routines that will sculpt and strengthen your body. Having a coach by your side via this app may just give you the motivation to carry on with your workout sessions and keep you committed until you see excellent results.
The Bowflex HVT is innovative home gym experience that offers a space saving design that’s fun and functional to use. It helps enhance all areas of your fitness level and best of all, provides the guidance you may need to reach higher levels of your physical fitness. Use it on its own or in combination with a treadmill or a Bowflex Max Trainer to see even better results.
