Ordered this rowing machine for my everyday exercise, been lazy to go to the fitness gym, because it’s getting so cold out, especially in the morning, but still need to do my exercise, so this one works, exactly what I need for my whole body. It was pretty easy to assemble it, the instructions are clear to understand, did need an extra helper to do it, very easy to use it, just need to adjust the level, which ever that fits your need, on the video was my son, who’s using it, as you can see it’s pretty easy to function it, and now my whole family loves it, so we just take turns, and I loves it can just standing up, with wheels on the bottom, it helps me move around a lot easier, of course save lots of rooms, especially I have a small living area, so recommended for anyone that’s lazy to go to the gym, you’ll find it exercise in your own house is fun and convenience.
I was hesitant to purchase this at first due to none of the reviews or details stating anything about max height. The details of the rower give a max weight (100kg/220lbs) but no height, anyway I decided to purchase one anyway and I’m glad I did. I’m 5’3 and my fiancé is 6’2 (210lbs) and it works great for both of us. It’s quiet, light and compact (unlike other competitive machines like the concepts), and easy to maneuver. Not to mention the resistance levels are decent too. It’s easy to assemble, fast delivery, and for the price it’s definitely worth it. I’m hoping it lasts awhile. Very happy with this purchase.
I use this product at home for an all around good workout. I am a full time server while going to restaurant full time. I bought this so I could still maintain a healthy lifestyle with a full and busy schedule. This rower is fairly easy and quick to setup. It has a smooth ride and what seems like a sturdy body. The only drawback is the computer was little small. Other than this, it is a good purchase for a beginner rower on a budget.
I've been using this for almost a month so far. The rower really does the job! I used to run on treadmill everyday, now I use this rower instead. It was very easy to assemble when it first came, and the settings are user friendly. It has become an important part of my daily exercise routine, and it made my life so easy and healthy.
It is my first foray into rowing machines so I didn't want to spend too much money, at 199 Dollar this looked like a good compromise between price and quality. Then, when I unboxed it, I realised there's very little compromise on quality indeed, this is a properly sturdy piece of kit. The assembly took me 20 minutes and the assembly instructions seemed quite clear when I first looked at them. The rowing machine comes with all the tools (spanners and a crosshead screwdriver) you need to do the assembly. Also the magnetic rowing machine is foldable, which is also a nice design. The machine has a built in LCD display that shows various bits of information from stroke rate to calories used. I'm 5 feet 10 inches tall, all solid muscle obviously :-), it is very easy to use. Nice purchase.
In process of making my home gym, only thing lrft was was rowing machine. I bought this to complete my gym. Now I have treadmill, elliptical, cycle and rowing. This one is very light weight and took no time in assembly. Everything is already constructed and very less needs to be screwed. Comes with all the required tools but I used my own tools to assemble it. The seat cushion is very comfortable and spongy. The tension out resistence is perfect for beginners to experts. Just 15 mins of rowing is more than enough for the day. Storing is very easy. Just make it stand and store any where. A great small and light weight rowing machine for the best exercise.
We love this. My husband is right around 200lbs. He can use this and get full extension. This rower is actually better than the one i had been using at the gym. At the gym i rowed at a tension of 10- the max. If i row above a 3 (and it goes up to 10) on this one, i last all of 4 minutes and am sore for days. Its light (enough) and totally durable. We've been using it religiously for some time no problems. Bonus- easy set up and fast delivery.
Just got this rowing machine, but seems great on the test ride. I am no handy person and was successful in assembling the machine myself. I followed the directions/steps and looked at pictures of the final product online to help and 2 hours later it was done. It also does not take up much space in my workout room.
