- Some design features look outdated (especially the monitor)
- Noisy for an air rowing machine
The Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower is the typical mid-range machine. It combines some advanced features such as the metal chain with some entry-level features like the unimpressive monitor. It also proves to be a bit noisy for an air rowing machine although this should not be a major problem for most users. It comes with large footplates and can thus be used by all family members, especially with the adjustable nylon straps.
The design combines modern features such as the metal chain with some outdated patters such as the monitor. It`s compact size will make it a top option for people living in smaller spaces and given the foldable design it will prove to be a long-term option. It comes with floor protectors so it will work on any surface in the house, although transporting it on the wheels may not be the best idea for hard-wood surfaces.
The design combines steel, chrome, nylon and plastic but lacks a proper identity. So if you`re need the best looking machine you`ll have to accept that design is not the best feature of the rower.
The performance of the machine encourages long, daily, workouts due to the metal chain, the foam molded seat and the angled seat rail. This is coupled by an easy to use monitor that will display basic information such as: distance, count, calories and time. It comes with some presets which will be greatly appreciated for diversity in the workouts.
Although it aims to provide a full-body workout you can expect some extra focus on: the upper back, hands, quads, hamstrings and glutes. As a tool for building cardiovascular endurance it performs well. It is compact in size so it will be friendlier on new users.
You can expect a sturdy machine that will last for years and even the simple monitor will prove to have a long life together with the metal chain. If you`re looking for a compact machine that you can use every day and don`t care that much about modern looks, then Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air is the rower to choose.
