After owning it for a year but having the boxes sit in a corner for lack of space, I finally decided where the Bowflex (an “XTREME XTLU” model) would go and started unpacking it last night.

An hour and a half later, I had everything but the “optional leg attachment” unpacked and mostly laid out on a rug in the living room (since we have hardwood floors).

Tonight I’ll proceed to the actual assembly stage; it shouldn’t take me more than a couple of hours tonight to put everything together.

This will let me finally get rid of all EIGHT boxes this week when Big Trash Pickup Day rolls around on Friday.
