Proving you with multiple ways to work out and focus on your fitness the Bowflex PR3000 is a true ‘total-body’ exercise machine in every sense of the word and in this article, we are going to take a closer look at the PR3000 and see if it has the makings of a good piece of home gym equipment or not, read on to see what we think about the Bowflex PR3000.

​The Bowflex home gym series PR3000 is a home gym system that provides challenging exercises for a total-body, home-based workout.

Using power rod assistance, the Bowflex PR3000 can provide a total body workout experience without using free weights and without the need to include more attachments, bars or weights.

With a heavy-duty steel construction, the Bowflex PR3000 is a very strong and durable piece of kit that can withstand long term use and with the ability to perform over 50 different gym-quality exercises you can be confident that this one machine can certainly offer a challenge to your exercise regime as you perform exercises for all the major muscle groups in the body, it even has the capabilities to reach the small, harder to reach muscles to truly help you improve your physique.

​Features of the Bowflex Home Gym Series PR3000

  • ​Power rod resistance – With adjustable resistance levels from 5lbs all the way up to 210lbs (can be upgraded to 310lbs) the power rod resistance can provide you with more than enough resistance to perform strength-based workouts for a range of different muscle groups.
  • ​Workouts – The Bowflex PR3000 will give you the chance to complete over 50 different gym-quality exercises, giving you a complete total-body workout as you work muscles in your legs, back, chest and shoulders and build the complete physique.
  • ​Accessories – The PR3000 comes equipped with a range of different multi-use handles and ankle cuffs, all designed for maximum performance in every workout, and you will also receive an instructional workout placard giving you a strong breakdown of the different exercises you can do, how to do them and even highlighting which muscles you will benefit.
  • ​Comfort – With such a powerful frame, made from heavy-duty steel and offering long-lasting durability, you would be forgiven for thinking that the PR3000 wouldn’t find any place for comfort, you’d be wrong. The roller cushions and padded seat and backrest will ensure that whichever exercise you are doing, you will still feel comfortable and in control.
  • ​Pulley System – The pulley system allows you to go from one move to the next without having to change and waste time in between exercises, loading or removing weights, bars or other attachments. It makes working out much simpler and far easier to use than a traditional home workout station and also saves space as you won’t need additional pieces of equipment.

​What We Liked

What we liked the most about the PR3000 is the high variety of gym-quality exercises that are available to complete on this machine and the fact that the PR3000 also comes with an exercise placard to make it easier for you to figure out what to do and how to do it.

Having so many exercises at your disposal eliminates the need to buy multiple pieces of kit, helping you to save time, space and money and it also means you have more than enough options for all your exercise needs. The power rod resistance levels can reach 210lbs (or more if you upgrade) which should be sufficient for most people meaning that once again, this machine really can offer something for everyone.

​What We Didn’t Like

We did find some of the lower resistance levels too light, meaning you have to start going heavier before you really feel the benefits of the exercise. For this reason, we feel the standard weight limit should be 310lbs, not 210lbs. It may not be a number that everyone will achieve but it will offer a bigger range of possibilities for anyone that finds the lower levels too light.

​Final Thoughts

​For intermediate or novice users alike the Bowflex PR3000 is a really good piece of gym kit.

It provides you with exercise options for a complete total-body workout and has more than enough available exercise options to make this a great piece of kit for all different types of users.

The power rod resistance makes completing the exercises far easier than we initially thought and the fact that you can go up to 210 or 310lbs is certainly a bonus for the more experienced lifters out there.

If you’re looking for a machine that can do it all, without requiring you to spend more money on other attachments or pieces of kit, the PR3000 could be a fantastic option for you and your home gym.
