Not sure if you guys are familiar with it, i'm not either, but i think its supposed to use technology that astronauts use for outer space.
any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Absolutely. Joining a gym practically saved my life. Tizimare is right though. Walking, or jogging if you are up to it is a lot cheaper than a Bowflex and you can start tonight. Anything that gets your heart rate up for a while and causes you to get hot and sweaty is the perfect way to combat stress. I jog and have done the gym both for 10 years now and it has made a huge difference in my personal and professional lives. Bowflex is portable and easy to switch work stations but resistance training is the same whether it is weights or a machine. Not that you shouldn't consider it because they are not junk but don't get caught up in needing a gadget.
If you opt for a gym you can go for about three years for the price of the Bowflex machine and you will find once you go to the trouble of showing up at the gym it is a little harder to blow off the workout when your TV, kitchen, and couch aren't waiting just a few feet away.
