Does Bowflex Revolution Work?

Does the New Bowflex Really Work? There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the release of the new Bowflex Revolution FT. It features Spiraflex, a state-of-the-art system that uses a patented resistance technology that offers the same benefits of traditional weights. But does it work?
Have you tried it? Did the Bowflex Revolution worked for you?

Here's an Expert Review:

"Unlike some exercises performed on Bowflex's power rod-based home gyms, we find that the range of motion of the Revolution was uniformly smooth and delivered a constant resistance throughout the exercise. The Revolution succeeds in replicating the feel of a traditional plate machine. It also offers an impressive array of workouts -- more than 100, according to Bowflex's claims. The twin variable Freedom Arms at the rear of the unit pivot 170 degrees for a broad range of upper body exercises. The unit includes a leg press station, a preacher curl attachment and an integrated rowing machine function that allows you to add a cardio workout to your strength training. The 220 pounds of resistance can be upgraded to 300 pounds for a nominal fee, while the leg press station maxes out at an impressive 600 pounds of resistance (with upgrade). Anyone but serious athletes should be able to obtain a complete body workout with this machine."

I didn't try it but apparently it works.

The Bowflex Revolution would be a good fit for you:
# If you have a home office and or if you want convenience
# If you dislike fighting the primetime crowds at the gym, which begin to amass at about 5:00 PM and go until about 7:30 PM
# If you have ample room in your home
# If you are an intermediate or advanced user Ė or you have a professional trainer get you started; Iíve been lifting weights for years and it took me a little time to get used to it
# If you are either strong or donít plan on moving the machine: this machine is heavy and itís bulky. It does have a foldaway feature, but it does require a fair amount of strength. Moving and folding away the machine can be dangerous for most people, my suggestion to you is not to move it or fold it up unless necessary Ė even then, be careful.
