This is my first home rowing machine. It was very easy to out together. It took two people 15 minutes. It's not difficult to move around, and it fits nicely off to the side. I've used it almost every day since ordering. It provides some great cardio. Very nice for conditioning. The tension control settings go from 1 to 10, and while the top setting isn't super hard, you definitely feel the burn with repetitions.
It's not the fanciest machine out there, but for those looking for a reliable machine at a good price, this hits the spot.
As the first owner and former college rower, this machine is awesome! Easy to assemble and exercise. Very quiet and easy to move magnetic reluctance. I did a lot of research before installing this machine. I decided to use magnetic force to keep quiet sound. Setting 3 on the resistance is similar to on the water. The folding size is the perfect size for my bedroom space. Can't wait to get back to the original!
Easy to put together, all the screws come pre-attached so you know where each one goes. So far it works pretty well, the handle is a bit low, but the angle also gives a good leg workout in addition to upper body and core. So far really Luke it.
The magnetic resistance system makes it durable and really smooth in transition between levels. I love how the unit is foldable and really easy to store. Room is really important in a small townhouse, so equipment like this makes a quick little refresher or a sudden urge to flex my muscles possible.
I am 85 years young and trying to get in shape for my fall bowling leagues. This follows a short illness i I had early this spring. The machine works quite well. The only drawback was it is built close to the ground. After using it for two weeks that is no longer an issue.
