Core Max REVIEWS
Core Max has received mix reviews from users. While some users are fairly satisfied with its design, others have reported experiencing various problems while using it.
Core Max, some users say, has ‘failed’ them as it is difficult to adapt to and uncomfortable to use. Some are aghast at the advertisements of Core Max, which they say are totally misleading and false. Some say that Core Maxis only a spring loaded device with a tensioner, which itself is hard to adjust. Some have also commented that Core Max cannot be used as a bicycle even though it’s supposed to function as one. Using Core Max to work out on abs also hurts the lower back even while doing sit-ups. One user actually said that he can feel the machine pushing against his kidneys.
Another person has complained about the condition Core Max arrived in. He says itdidn’t come attached with tension knobs.The packaging of Core Max was also loose and one of the plastic caps on the bottom arm was. He also finds it difficult to set the same level of tension on both sides of Core Max. Another customer says that due to the odd design of the split bar at the back of the machine,he’s started getting regular backache ever since he’s using it.
Core Max, according to other users also isn’t smooth or comfortable. It tends to slip while being used no matter on which surface it is kept on. Since it is split at the back, if you don’t get the technique of pushing it right at the proper level, it can hurt your back.
There’s one reviewer who calls Core Max a strictly average work out equipment. He feels Core Max should have been designed to offer better resistance and remain stable. It shifts around and makes squeaky noise while being used. Another customer who bought Core Max recounts how the initial excitement he felt when it was delivered turned into disappointment. He found that the knob on one side of the machine was very stiff. He spent 10 minutes to get one of the bars up. When he adjusted both bars at the same resistance level, one of them went higher and wouldn’t come down. He’s still finding it difficult to use Core Max.
Another user feels that Core Maxis made of cheaper quality material,and it can break anytime.Its foam rollers on the moving handles also move around too much, due to which his hands keep slipping off the roller. He’s not very happy with its non-expandable resistant feature and the small seating space. He also thinks one can’t perform an intense and vigorous work outwith Core Max.
One reviewer says that if one uses Core Max with single-minded dedication, it can give great results. He’s satisfied with the back support that Core Max provides.However, he says that Core Max should have better padding and its springs shouldn’t make noise.
Core Max apparently needs a major overhaul, if one goes by the observations of some more reviewers. One user has complained how difficult it is getting to turn the level knob of Core Max. His hands get hurt even when he tries to move his Core Max a bit. At times he just lets it be, exercises for a while and forgets about it.
A user of shorter stature says how much she struggles to use Core Max on lesser resistance level. Since her arms are small, she can’t perform certain exercises. She actually stands on a stool to complete her work out with Core Max.
