Bowflex PR1000 Vs Best-Fitness MG20
In my honest opinion -- if you are looking to get a good quality home gym for under $500 -- you pretty much have two options either 1) the Bowflex PR1000 or 2) the Best Fitness BFMG20 Sportsman. Both these home multi-gyms have their own unique features and specifications (which will be discussed in more detail below), and will hence appeal to different people. However, both are very well regarded and popular amongst their respective customers and not surprisingly there is a pretty good reason for this... they offer real value for money.
PR1000 Home Gym by Bowflex -- (Best Price: $449.00)
Obviously, a home gym under $500 -- that has that much to offer you, is a home gym that has got to be worth considering. However, don't just take my word for it on how good it is -- be sure to check out all the positive reviews surrounding it too. On Amazon.com for example, it scores an average of 4.4 stars out of 5 stars from a 112 reviews (as of 29/09/2012) -- making it the best rated home multi-gym listed, and is consistently praised with comments such as "I love it. Lots of exercises you can do (both muscular and cardio) and you can really feel it." and "Overall rating - The Bow flex pr1000 definitely is worth the money. The machine is well made and will do its job."
BFMG20 Sportsman Gym by Best Fitness -- (Best Price: $399.99)
In all, it is clear from both the price (under $400) as well as the features listed (and overall 'solid build') that the BFMG20, offers a lot of bang for your buck. And I am not the only one who admires the BFMG20 -- there are a lot of people out there who agree, with more than 75% of Amazon reviewers rating it either a 5 or 4 star rating (as of 29/09/2012). Along with it being covered in reviews with positive remarks such as "This machine does just what you need as a home-fitness gym. It is compact and both my wife and I find it great to maintain tone without wanting huge bulk." and "I'm very satisfied with the BFMG20 Best Fitness home gym. I've been using it for about a month now and I'm very impressed with the quality and function." -- which in all, sums up the general view of the BFMG20 rather nicely.
