Bowflex BXE116 Elliptical Detailed Overview

Just released for the 2017 beach season, the BX E116 Elliptical ($1499 on sale) is a first look at the new brand Bowflex Results by Nautilus. This new brand also features Nautilus E614 Elliptical Trainer and two treadmills. Compared with the classic Bowflex collection of home gym equipment, Bowflex Results fitness machines provide more workout programming and richer data feedback… and compared with competing brands, they have superior construction for higher performance and durability. Although this brand is new the great warranties help it launch with high expectations.The machine’s robust 30-pound drive system is a big selling point: The heavier the drive or resistance system, the smoother the elliptical motion. And with 25 resistance settings, the trainer just right for all workout intensities and ability levels. With this Bowflex elliptical you can get very gentle low-impact cardio exercise, or you can choose more challenging cross training by upping the resistance level and/or increasing the angle of exercise. Pedals on the E116 can incline up to 10% and have adjustable cushioning.

Designed with shared use in mind, Bowflex Results cross trainers can keep up to four user profile. Each machine is shipped with a chest strap for use with the console’s heart rate receiver. Calorie burn data from this new brand is especially accurate and useful too; you’ll see calorie burn per minute (not just overall) for extra motivation. And with Bluetooth connectivity the E116 Elliptical lets you export calorie burn, heart rate and other stats to various fitness apps for tracking.
