- Not the best position for the monitor
- Reduced parts warranty
The Air Rower manages to deliver a controllable workout that will enhance your weight loss efforts. It comes at a lower price while still managing to offer a good workout based in the wind-resistance technology. You can expect a full-body workout with an emphasis on: arms, shoulders, quads, hamstrings and glutes. The rowing machine is great for home use on surfaces like wood due to the added protectors that prevent skidding.
The machine comes with a modern and durable design. The foot plates are large and allow adjusting with nylon straps. The seat and the handlebar are padded for increased comfort which makes the machine perfect for longer training sessions.
The rowing strap is made of out of high-resistance nylon which should have a long life. The seat railing design is angled which puts an extra emphasis on muscles in the upper back and the shoulders. As with most machines in this price range, it comes with a foldable design for easy storage.
In terms of performance, the machine will deliver a heavy workout due to the angled railing and the wind resistance technology which increases in difficulty at the same time with the effort of the user. The monitor is multi-function and it supports the interpretation of data such as speed or distance. It will also measure the burned calories which is crucial for any full-body workout.
The rowing machine has an increased comfort in the foot area with the adjustable footplates, with the padded handlebar and seat thus increasing comfort especially during training sessions of over 15-20 minutes. The machine is thus recommended for those looking to maintain a high heart-rate level for intensive weight loss or for people that need extra comfort from a rowing machine.
There are minor issues with the Air Rower but overall the machine manages to deliver a good result in a durable package. The increased comfort is targeting home users and with the foldable design it will be a great addition or it could also work as standalone equipment for anyone looking to increase their fitness levels from the comfort of their own home.
Although the monitor is not placed at the best possible angle it still manages to deliver some data on speed, distance, time and calories which new users will appreciate the most.
