- Heavy (96lbs)
- Requires complex assembly
This machine is solidly built and is made for purpose. It can handle multiple daily uses and can display and save workout information. As expected, it is quite large: 92” length, 19’ width and 36” height. It comes with a complete set of presets and the ability to monitor the heart rate through the included chest strap. The rower can be used by everybody looking to tone muscles and lose weight.
The machine is complex and takes some tweaking to fully assemble. The frame is solidly built as is covered for the rest of your life should any problems arise with it. The monitor is not the best looking but it serves the purpose of a heavy, commercial, use.
The foot pads are very large, made from steel and have the ability to pivot. They are truly built for a premium product. The rowing handle is ergonomic and it reduces the stress on the hands, especially on longer workouts. One interesting feature is the adjustable air vent which will keep you cooler during your high intensity sessions. It is a foldable design that can be moved on the built-in wheels.
The rower performs very well due to the combined technology of air and magnetic principles. The monitor is complete and includes: 16 levels of resistance and 15 preset programs for daily use: 4 programs for heart rate, 4 programs for user-defined settings, a manual mode, ramp and pacer modes, white water, watts control, interval distance and time.
In terms of data display and interpretation it includes: total calories burned, strokes per minute, total number of strokes, total time in rowing, pulse rate, watts, and 500 meter split time. This data can be interpreted with the included chest wrap which is something rare even with premium machines.
If you can pay the price you will get a complete, modern, machine that is capable of multiple daily uses without any problems. Not only does it have the capability to bring multiple programs to the user which will allow for more challenging workouts in the gym, but it will also deliver a complete high intensity workout at home.
