VANCOUVER, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Breaking away from traditional fitness conventions, two new BowFlex® cardio machines put feeling good first. The BowFlex Max Trainer SE and the BowFlex IC Bike SE are engineered to accommodate all fitness levels and fit in any space, with intuitive features that are easy to adjust and sleek designs that are worthy of a place in your living room –– or anywhere else.
BowFlex is making it easy to work out whenever it works for you, and wherever you choose to work out at home. The new machines are nearly silent, which means late-night and early-morning workouts won’t disturb your family, roommates, or neighbors. Plus, both products are compatible with the JRNY® fitness app, offering personalized trainer-led or Explore the World workouts via your tablet or mobile device.
As the first products inspired by the bold evolution of the BowFlex brand, the new cardio machines are engineered to deliver fitness that’s empowering, inclusive, and reflects the feeling that comes from movement. Full-color displays and compatibility with popular fitness apps, including JRNY, give fitness enthusiasts true flexibility to move to what’s important to them. The BowFlex Max Trainer SE and the BowFlex IC Bike SE are now available for pre-order at bowflex.com.
“Home fitness is here to stay, and there’s no reason to relegate it to the basement or limit when you can exercise,” said Jim Barr, Chief Executive Officer. “Today, we’re encouraging our customers to move to what matters to them, and we’re helping them do just that with a new lineup of products designed with both form and function in mind. Being a consumer-focused company is more than just a philosophy; it’s a core part of our mission, reflected in the features present in our products, and the connected, personalized experience we offer through JRNY – our digital fitness platform.”
Design engineering that elevates the feeling of home fitness
Stair stepper meets elliptical in the BowFlex Max Trainer SE, and low-impact, high-intensity workouts are now whisper-quiet, so that you can tune into your virtual trainer or playlist and work out without disturbing anyone else. The BowFlex Max Trainer SE offers an upgraded, minimalist design and maximizes your options to use your own device to access popular fitness apps. Sixteen resistance levels vary workout intensity and efficiency, while Terrain Control Technology replicates the sensation of climbing hills and descending valleys in JRNY Explore the World routes. The BowFlex Max Trainer SE also comes with a 7-inch color display to keep track of your heart rate, burn rate, and more, and a media device holder to follow your favorite workouts or shows on your phone or tablet.
BowFlex is also building on the success of its C6 indoor cycling bike with the new BowFlex IC Bike SE. The new, sleek, and sophisticated indoor cycling machine offers flexibility in fitness app compatibility just like the BowFlex Max Trainer SE, and its streamlined design is right at home in any room. Inspired engineering puts the flywheel behind the seat post and gives you more ways to adjust your handlebars and seat, so you can more precisely customize the comfort of your ride. Thoughtful details include an expandable water bottle holder located below the console, along with a padded media holder. You can monitor your workout with an unobstructed view of the full-color, 7-inch display that keeps track of your distance, speed, heart rate, and more, or follow workouts on your phone or tablet while connected to JRNY or other fitness apps. The new IC bike also features 100 magnetic resistance levels, a pair of 3-pound dumbbells, and dual-sided pedals.
“Both products were designed with our customers in mind, and we looked for opportunities to integrate their feedback into the product design process,” said Gregg Wilson, senior cardio product manager. “For example, we want to support a range of customers, so we made the BowFlex IC Bike SE even more adjustable. We heard that people find fans are a little noisy, so we took that off the BowFlex Max Trainer SE. Our decisions were aimed at supporting our customers and what moves them – whether they are focused on building their physical or mental health.”
Both the BowFlex Max Trainer SE and the BowFlex IC Bike SE come with a two-month, free trial JRNY membership. JRNY workout options include trainer-led cardio classes, virtual coaching, and hundreds of stunning Explore the World routes, as well as options to stream your favorite playlist or shows. With each session, the JRNY adaptive fitness platform recommends a unique selection of workout options tailored to your individual progress and potential, based on your usage and goals.
