One of the best features of this machine is the heavy duty construction. It is built using a heavy duty steel frame which is designed to retain its shape. The Bowflex Xceed is an investment and is sure to give you a lifetime of workouts.

What experts didn't like
Be aware, however, that the power rods do require a little extra room to flex. This will require about one hundred inches side to side.

Its base does not come with anchor holes or points so you cannot attach the entire equipment to the floor of your home.
- Gym Gear Info
Of course, some of these exercises require extra accessories. For example, the ab crunch exercises require an ab harness. Also, leg kickbacks or adductions call for an ankle cuff.
- Best Fitness Equipment
Does not come with all the necessary assembly tools
