Bowflex logoBowflex started selling their first product in 1986. Their name changed a few times. It went from Bowflex of America to Bowflex, Inc, and then shortly after, they changed their name to Direct Focus, Inc. After becoming more popular and successful, Bowflex bought the companies Nautilus Corporation, Schwinn Fitness, and Stairmaster Fitness. Later, they changed their name to the Nautilus, Inc. that consisted of those three brands, and then later purchased other brands. When you visit their page now, they offer Bowflex, Nautilus, CoreBody, Schwinn® Fitness, and Universal for their brands.

The Bowflex treadmills have always received pretty decent reviews and The Nautilus Company has a good 30 years of background experience with fitness. The name itself is pretty trustworthy. The problem with Bowflex is their limited amount of treadmills. Currently, Bowflex is only selling 1 treadmill. It is difficult to compare treadmills when they are only offering one. For the lower price of the treadmill, you would think that they would have a great warranty on it. However, the warranty is slightly disappointing.

Considering the low price of their treadmill, they offer pretty decent features and specifications. The treadmill has a great motor with a large running surface. It comes with workout apps and heart rate control. They also have the folding capabilities that make them easier to store in your home while you are not using them.

The treadmills that Bowflex offers seem to be pretty decent. The only negative thing about this company is that they do not offer enough treadmills and the ones they do offer have a poor warranty. If you wanted to buy fitness equipment from Bowflex, I would recommend purchasing their treadclimbers instead. They have a little more options to compare and browse through.
