Bioforce Home Gym TNT
6 Facts You Must Know Before You Buy
Have you been considering purchasing the Bioforce Home Gym or Tony Little's Bio Force Extreme TNT?
Well before you blow your hard earned cash on these home gyms take a second to read this article.
A good friend of mine recently phoned me up and asked me my opinion about the Bio Force 1.7 Home Gym or the Bioforce home gym TNT as it's more commonly called.
I told him I knew very little about it, but what he revealed to me and all the TV infomercials I saw, got my interest.
I'll be candid with you I am no big fan of the overpriced home gyms that I see on TV or in sporting goods stores. For the most part they are poorly MADE and EXTREMELY OVER-PRICED.
So with much reluctance I took a quick trip down to the local Sports Authority (SA) to check one out.
Here are the Pros and Cons
Of The Bioforce Home Gym:
- It is a strong piece of equipment when compared to any of the Bowflex home gyms sold at SA (I have yet to see the Bowflex Revolution) and I would imagine on TV or their web site as well.
- The lat pull down attachment was well constructed and the handles were made of good quality.
- The unit itself is not light in weight (it weights 174 lbs. fully assembled) but I guess that is to be expected since you don't want it falling over on you while you are exercising.
- I asked the sales associate at the store about how easy it was to assemble and he stated that the Bioforce Home Gym people say it only takes 1.5 hours but he had assembled the one on the floor and it was closer to 2.5 hours.
He did mention that the instructions were easy to follow and complete. Also, he stated, that they do provide all the tools necessary for assembly. A nice feature I must add.
- The unit itself is not small by any means so you probably will need a good sized room to put it in. The assembled dimensions are 52-3/4" L X 65" W X 82" H. It is tall so forget about putting it in the interior of your home if you have low ceilings or in your basement. You will need to devote one room as a fitness gym for this big unit.
- I did get a chance to look at their training manual and here I was VERY disappointed! They advertise more than 100 exercises
the truth is that many of the exercises are simply doing the exercise with your other hand, as in the case of a biceps curl. They count the right hand as one exercise and the left hand as exercise number two.
In this one area they fail miserably... how can you get a good workout?
Personally for much less money I would get a quality set of resistance bands, an Isometric exerciser and some dumbbells.
Bodylastics Home Gym for a FRACTION of the cost (around $40 bucks) can provide you a great workout. Throw in the Bully Xtreme Home Gym and you have a one two punch that will pack muscle on you fast and for less than $100 bucks!
