Another great piece of home gym equipment designed and manufactured by Nautilus, we have the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 3.1, this weight bench is one of the best sellers in its category due to the simple but effective design and of course the very competitive pricing.
The Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbells also by Nautilis would go nicely with this weight bench. The dumbbells also happens to be one of the best sellers in its category.

The Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 3.1 is similar to the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 5.1 but has less adjustable positions however this would probably be sufficient enough for most people. Due to the fact that this bench is strong, stable and sturdy I think it is definitely worth the money. The bench is fairly light weighing only 63 lbs and with the attached wheels at the bottom this makes it more mobile.
Although it’s not shown in the picture but the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench Series 3.1 does come with a leg hold down brace which can be removed in literally seconds. The leg hold down brace is used for decline exercises or abdominal exercises but when doing flat bench or incline exercises the leg brace may get in the way which is why it can be removed easily.
The fact that Bowflex offers a 15 year warranty on the frame implies that the bench is made with good strong material and Bowflex are confident that something is unlikely to go wrong with the frame.
