The Revolution and the Xtreme 2 SE are two well-known home gym models from Bowflex which is one of the leaders in home gym equipment. We compare all of the pros, cons, the exercise variety, and much more of each machine.

Bowflex Revolution Home Gym
Bowflex Xtreme 2 SE Home Gym
The Bowflex Revolution offers over 100 exercises with a 220 lbs of resistance. This is a solid, heavy-duty home gym with a maximum user weight of 300 lbs. The machine is guaranteed by a 10-year machine warranty. If you are looking for a home gym with vertical bench press then this machine is the one.
The Xtreme 2 SE offers over 70 exercises with a 210 lbs of power rod resistance. The machine is guaranteed by a 7-year machine warranty and lifetime warranty for the power rods. It’s also one of the most compact machines of Bowflex. With this machine, no cable changes needed between exercises. The only thing we don’t like is the lack of a bench.
