User Reviews

Review 1

I was nervous to purchase this because there weren't any reviews at the time I purchased it. The model below this one has plenty of reviews where most of the complaints stemmed from the foot rest not being large enough and the machine being noisy while rowing. I took a chance and got this model and it seems those issues have been addressed.

The machine was easy to assemble, took less than 15 mins, the only issue I had was putting the bottom part, that goes in the back, the stabilizer, on the medal part, it didn't seem to fit. So, it was wobbly and unstable until after it was fully assembled, during my first few rows, my body weight forced the part to fit.

The foot rest is large enough to allow the foot to stay on the rest while rowing and the machine is pretty quiet. I'm not sure how accurate the calories burned meter is but the counter seems to be accurate for the number of rows. AA battery not included.

The actual workout, which can be adjusted with the tension selector, is a really good workout. I started on a 6 and you can really feel all of your muscles working. I've only had the machine since April 20th but I can already feel the results of the workout.

I would definitely recommend this machine to anyone looking to improve their cardio and tone up a bit.

Review 2

This is rowing machine is amazing. Easy to put together and very high quality. This is my first rowing machine and I love it. The seat moves with ease and the adjustable resistance is awesome. I really feel like this will help get me back in shape and highly recommended it. My only regret is not buying this sooner.

Review 3

Seems to be a good machine. Packaging is top notch and assembly is easy. My wife is happy with the tension setting on 3, I'm using the machine on 11 and slightly concerned it will not provide enough resistance for me, but we will see….We decided to buy this unit before we invest in a concept 2 and are so far pretty impressed for the price. As another reviewer mentioned, this seems to be the model to purchase. The one below this, with many reviews, seems to have some flaws that were corrected with this machine. So far so good, would recommend.

Update….I have used this machine on a pretty regular basis (3-4 times per week 400 reps per set) since I bought it and I am updating to report some of the same issues other reviewers have mentioned. Have owned it now about two months and the shock is squeaking like a banshee! I have been rowing on setting 10 and it now squeaks from beginning to end of my 20 min workout. The rollers in the seat are also starting to seize up creating an non-smooth slide. I really don't think that I should be at a point in which I'm doing maintenance on this thing and feel like its just about fallen apart. My return window through Amazon is “closed” and I'm not sure I'll have any recourse. Seemed like decent quality out of the box, not so much anymore.

Review 3

This is a decent rowing machine and I'm glad I purchased it. It does have it's issues though, but for ~$170, my minimal expectations were met. My main form of exercise is lap swimming a couple of miles every week and I wanted to have something at the house for when I can't make it to the pool.

ASSEMBLY
It took this stay-at-home-mom about 45 minutes by myself. I did have my husband tighten some things here and there. The most obnoxious thing about assembly was half of the nuts and bolts that the instructions said you should have from the box were already assembled on the machine. I ended up having to undo then redo some of the pre-assembly because of that. Not a huge biggie.

MACHINE USE
It IS a squeaker, it's only kind of annoying and I haven't tried WD-40 on anything yet. The phone/tablet holder is really convenient, as is the monitor. I haven't found a huge amount of difference between the lowest and the highest tension settings, maybe because I'm in fairly decent shape. However, I recall reading somewhere, if you're not getting a good workout on a rowing machine, it's not the machine's fault. You're supposed to speed up/increase the intensity of your movements if it feels too easy. So it's up to you how hard you work, not the machine. I found this to be true when I used a Concept2 rower while on vacation last week. I got only a slightly better work out after 30 minutes on the Concept2 than I do when I work out on this for 30 minutes. Granted, I have to work harder on this machine, but my point being, you can get a good workout on this rower.

Overall, if you need a cost-conscience machine–even if it's a bit on the clunky side–to get your heart-rate up, this rower should do the trick for you.

Review 4

I rate this value for money, it works very well for what I paid. I'm 5' 8″ 195lbs and it fits me perfectly. The seat is comfortable enough and rolls smoothly. The rowing arms cycle through their range smoothly with even tension. The foot pedals are large with a wide lip on the bottom, my feet have never come close to falling out. The Velcro straps are very basic but I haven't had any issues with them. The one thing that it does that the more expensive ones probably don't is creak and groan. It's like your rowing an old wooden boat, I listen to music when I row so I more feel it than hear it. It doesnt bother me at all but if you're trying to have a quiet morning or late night workout good luck.

Review 5

I received my Rowing Machine on 27 May 16, I had it assembled within 30 mins. The direction book for assembly, is step by step, clear and precise all hardware included, too easy!! I was rowing in no time. I'm very excited about this machine, it's stable, the seat is comfortable and it's convenient for fitting in small spaces. This machine's resistance can be adjusted, I rowed on # 5 and believe me I felt this workout. I really recommend this rowing machine, it's affordable and effective.
