Flex Force Review

All the cords of Flex Force could get tangled and you may not be able to fix them to even set up Flex Force.

The bad news is that Flex Force does not come with assembly instructions. Even if you want to look for the instructions online you will not be able to find any. Flex Force comes with only 12 bolts and some washers for assembly so you could end up messing it up.

Flex Force does not come with any DVD’s. The booklet that comes with it explains the DVD’s, but there is none with it.

You may encounter problems with the mesh guards that are supposed to cover the vertical bands. They do not fit properly.

Directions to use Flex Force are a little bit confusing because the manual refers to pieces by a letter designation but there is nothing on those components to note which is which. Once put together, Flex Force works very well and comes with a lot of material to get you started with different exercises. Flex Force is not recommended for anyone who is into serious lifting, as the maximum tension you can get on the stock machine is only 74 pounds.

Flex Force Question and Answers

Q. What comes with the Flex Force machine? How many bands? What weights are they? Does it come with any DVD's? A. Flex Force comes with 3 Flex Cards with 50 different exercises, 7 DVD’s, 3 levels each. Gray band=5 lbs, Red band= 12 lbs and Black bands= 20 lbs. 2 of each color.

 

Q. Does Flex Force fold up for storage when not in use? If so, how small is its footprint when folded? A. Flex Force does fold up and takes up about 3X4 feet.

 

Q. What assembly is needed to put Flex Force device together? How long would it take for one person to do it? A. Flex Force requires assembly. It will take you about an hour to do it yourself. You have to put the frame together, cables are already in place and you have to put the seat on. It is tightening bolts and nuts.

 

Q. Is it possible to add tension by twisting the bands somehow? A. You can add tension by clipping more than one band together during the exercise but not by twisting the bands. You can clip all 3 bands together for most resistance.

 

Q. Can you work butt muscles or glutes with Flex Force? A. Yes, the Flex Force machine works the butt great. You can do squats, dead lifts, standing hip extensions, kneeling hip extensions, and kneeling kickbacks. These are all designed to work the butt muscles. The Flex Force machine is also really easy to put together and doesn't take up much space.

 

Q. I can see how the arms are exercised. How are the legs exercised with Flex Force? A. Flex Force has straps that fasten to ankles for resistance weight just like the hand straps for resistance band weight lifting. Flex Force works great without all the weights to move around.

 

Q. What are the dimensions of Flex Force when set up? H x W x L, (back to front). How much space do you need to use it? Would a 6 ft x 6 ft area work? A. With the footplate and exercise card display attached, it is roughly 45 inches front to back, 47 inches tall and 30 inches wide. Removing (or not installing) the card display brings the front to back measurement down around 36 inches (3 feet). As to whether this will work in a 6x6 area, as long as you are under 6 foot you should be able to perform some (but not all) exercises. More space would be ideal as some exercises require you to fully extend legs and arms while others require you to position yourself on floor in front of machine.

 

Q. What body parts does the Flex Force machine work? A. Flex Force works the arms, legs, and core.

 

Q. How much weight are the bands are equivalent to and what is the maximum resistance for each side would be in LBS? A. The bands are 5, 12 and 20. One side is 37. You can use all bands for one exercise which is 74 and you can combine them in various ways to make different weights. The Flex Force machine comes with a chart.

 

Q. What are the flat dimensions of the Flex Force machine? I am trying to determine if it can fit under my sofa. A. Flex Force would require more than 8" clearance under the couch because you need room for the cushion chair to fit.

  1. O/K so you didn’t get the DVD’s, but did you still use the chair?? Have you tried to use it even though?? Did it work like they say on the web page?? How is the resistance, did it feel like it actually works??

    • I got the Flex Force system without the workout CD. It is a good system. But i need the workout CD to have even flow working out and not having to stop and look how to position myself etc. Have tried twice to get the CD from them. I have not seen them yet.

      • I got Flex Force without the dvds as well, I contacted the company and they said they are looking into it. I threatened them with the reporting them to the BBB for false advertisement if I dont get them. Let you know what happens.

  2. So looks like I’m not getting my DVD’s at all. The generic call center says they have no way to order it. If you have complaints against Flexforce go directly to the owners. The owners of Flexforce is Emson. If you bought this and want to complain do so here: http://www.emsoninc.com/contact

  3. I also ordered this and didn’t get the DVD set. I called and still have not received DVD trainer set. This company is a complete scam. This is a waste of money, do not buy this product.

  4. I bought the complete program but they didn’t send me the DVD set. When ever I called them they say they will ship but it never happened it is already over 2 months. The service is really bad. I think I wasted my CAD$ 250.

  5. I really liked reading your post!. Quality content. With such a valuable blog I believe you deserve to be ranking even higher in the search engines :). Check out the link in my name. That links to a tool that really helped me rank high in google. This way even more people can enjoy your posts and nothing beats a big audiance 😉
