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.
I was able to assemble pretty easily with just a little help from someone else. Easy to use and enjoyable type of exercise. Received is a short time from order. Would recommend it for anyone needing some type of aerobic exercise that doesn’t want to hurt their knees.
The rowing machine comes in large heavy box. It is preassembled and easy to complete the setup. The rowing machine sits pretty low to the ground compared to other machines. The foot pads are actually touching the ground at all times. The ten different tensions do not feel that different or difficult until you get to 7-10. It is not a fan operated rowing machine like at most gyms but rather a series of cords. The slide is angled down (you can see pictured in the ad). The downward angle makes for a different experience than a traditional rowing machine. The slide feels a tad short as well. This rowing machine is of good quality for the price point but not a traditional rowing machine. I feel like it will make for good long distance easy rows to build endurance but not so good for sprinting and power/stamina based workouts.
