Features: The Bowflex M5 features a backlit LCD which displays calorie burn rate and targeted muscle zone. All of your workout data will be sent directly to the Bowflex app, which also syncs with the MyFitnessPal app. The Bowflex M5 also includes 8 workout modes: Max Interval, Smart Interval, Calorie Burn, Fat Burn, Calorie Goal, Stairs, Steady State, and Fitness Test. Also use the Blowflex M5 in manual mode and choose from 16 resistance levels.

Price: The Bowflex M5 can usually be found online for around $1,599, allowing you to burn half the calories for half the price.
