  • Great bench for all exercises. Like wheels to move
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Pacman - February 26, 2021

    Solid bench. Work well for weights and torso exercises. A 5” gap between seat and back when flat. I just made up an insert out of wood, foam and vinyl to fill that gap. See photos Like wheels to move around and store standing up when not in use

  • Great Bench - Very Solid
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Sheltering in PDX - April 2, 2020

    Due to my gym shutting down for the time being, I bought this bench to add onto my home gym so that I could continue to get some strength training in. It was delivered in great condition two weeks ago. Putting it together was a breeze. The nuts and bolts were all high quality and felt very sturdy while tightening them. Since then, I've used it every day and it's serving its purpose well. The bench feels very solid and doesn't wobble at all. Even when in an incline position, it felt very stable. I don't have a need to store it in an upright and folded position, but when I did test it out it was also very stable. Great product.

  • Bowflex Adj. 5.1S - FID Bench
    Reviewed by Bill - November 5, 2020

    I've owned this bench for a few months now and I workout in my garage. The biggest problem, for me, is the large gap between the seat back and seat bottom. This occurs when the bench is placed in the flat position. The gap is about 4 inches and is uncomfortable for me. I've read other reviewers having the same problem. Another issue is the front support legs. They are very wide and get in the way of my foot positioning when doing bench press. Overall, it can be a challenge to find a comfortable position; it just feels awkward. The PROS of this bench are the upright storage, FID adjustments and wheels to move around.

  • I would not recommend this bench to serious lifters
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Cajun Powerlifter - October 24, 2021

    If you are a serious lifter, I would not recommend this bench. The front legs do not allow for proper foot placement and form when bench pressing. The bench seat is too wide to step over when you have heavy dumbbells in your grips, or if your workout partner does not have long legs. One of the forward seat extension supports, where the bench bottom seat splits, broke the first day of use and now it sags more than the other side. I have other benches for equal or less money that far out perform this bench. I am extremely disappointed in the construction and quality of this bench. I love most all of the Bowflex products, however, this is one that I do not recommend anyone purchase.

  • Ok--not great.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by AGLift - April 30, 2021

    Positives: Feels pretty solid. Stores easily. Height adjustment options are nice. Negatives: The gap that everyone is complaining about is really huge and uncomfortable in certain situations. I'm not sure how the designers of this bench thought that was OK. The screws that come with this bench are one of those really really cheap Chinese screws that will melt off if you use any amount of force. The leg holder pads are too close to the butt pad for my legs. How hard would it be to allow you do adjust the distance from the pad? A little disappointed given this is their best bench.
