It glides very smoothly.
R. Meltzer
The build quality and fit and finish of the rower are very high -- and are frankly exceptional for a machine for home use.
M. Raschid
I have used the Concept 2 at the gym and it was excellent, but I like this rower even better.

Overall an excellent unit that I feel is worth its steep price. I've owned a couple rowers and a skier for years and after 3 weeks this is now my cardio workout device of choice. It's quiet, comfortable and the computer controlled workout options are nice. At first I thought things like "whitewater" rowing were a bit goofy but the variable resistance programs make a real difference. The fan does make a bit of noise but far less than my skier and I can easily watch TV over the top of the resistance unit.

The stats and options in the computer unit are top notch. The only gripe I have here is at full extension it sometimes loses the signal of my heart monitor (new Polar unit) - I'm 6' 3" - I tested the Polar watch and it, too, tends to lose the signal at that range so I suppose it's to be expected. I just wear the watch on my wrist to keep track of my actual heart rate (which is normally pretty close on the rower computer anyway) and use the computer stats for tracking distance, speed etc...

The Unit is very solid and sturdy and can give anyone a good workout. Yes, it's a tad on the expensive side but in my opinion it's worth it if you're going to use it often as I do.

After looking at several manufacturers and models I settled on the R100 because it has magnetic as well as air resistance. I'll admit I was a bit reluctant because of the price but after using it for three weeks now I'm extremely satisfied with the R100. It works like a dream. The flywheel isn't too loud and the seat glides very smoothly. It takes a bit of assembly but the allen wrench that comes with the R100 works just fine. When I placed my order I received notice that it would be delivered in 3-4 weeks but I had it in my house in one week! I've read some negative comments about Mercantila but I had no problems. If you're considering a rowing machine I highly recommend the R100. But if you've never used one before, see if you can test a few different types to experience air vs magnetic resistance. Possibly at a gym or spa if they allow single day or guest memberships for a day.

I tried every rower I could find before buying one, and the Lifecore R100 is by far the best of the bunch. I only gave it 4 stars because there are little things that I think can and need to be improved, such as the screen tends to lower itself gradually when working out, to the point where you need to let go of the handle bar and raise it, yea I am sure it just needs to be tightened up, but on a brand new machine, one should not have to do anything. I also think they could have made a longer, and beefier cord to plug this thing in, the little short cord is just not long enough.

The thing glides smooth, rows nice, and is a good rower. It goes together very easy, took me maybe 5 min to put together. I also spoke to the owner of Lifecore when researching these things, and the guy really knows a lot about rowing machines, and you can tell that he spent a lot of time refining this machine, and he cares about his product. Bottom line, good product, and this is defiantly on the top end of rowing machines.

I did not purchase my R100 through Amazon, however I have decided to post this review here since Amazon appears to have the largest free consumer review database online. Many websites that compile consumer reviews actually link into the reviews posted here. And I wanted to get the word about the Lifecore R100 rower, and why I am confused that it is considered a competitor to the Concept 2 rowers.

First a note on my rowing background: it is limited to rowing machines only, I have never rowed crew in real life. Also, a vast majority of my rowing has been on Concept 2 rowers. I row regularly for fitness both as a stand-alone workout, and integrated into Crossfit-type circuit training. I am no expert rower, but I do have many many hours logged on rowing machines.

After reading the rave reviews I decided to purchase a Lifecore R100 over a Concept 2. I did this against my instincts as I am very familiar with the Concept 2 line of rowers and know that I like them. And I had never used the R100, but I wanted to give the magnetic/wind resistance combination a try. So I picked up a used 2009 R100 in excellent condition from a private seller for $600. And after just one 5K row (approx. 20 minutes), I immediately put the rower up for sale. Here are the reasons why:

1. Poor Ergonomics: One of the big selling points that Lifecore promotes about the R100 is the angled footrests, which are supposed to produce a more ergonomically powerful rowing position. I found the angled footrests to be incredibly troublesome for my rowing. Angling the toes outward causes the legs and knees to spread when you go into the recovery position to begin a stroke.

I love this machine. I usually hate doing cariovascular workouts and I hate running and Ive found it to be a beautiful piece of equipment.It is relatively quiet and much quieter than the schwinn airdyne I used to use. It is very sturdily built, has a great seat and I absolutely love the foot spacing on it. I am a big guy (250lbs) and I find it very comfortable. For a guy who hates workouts I unexepctedly find myself jumping on it several times a day for 5-10 minute workouts. It is very user friendly and very easy to work with.It has had a slimming effect on my body and it would be great for a bodybuilder or weightlifter trying to cut up or improve cardio without resorting to higher impact exercises.You can explosively row this machine and do interval routines with ease. Its effect on my back, shoulders and waist has been great and noticeable. I have not used other rowers like the concept 2 so I cannot really compare. I have used an older model A concept 2 and didnt like it that much. However, it is not a fair comparison as Concept 2 has many more modern models on the market such as the model D and E. I have not done any amateur or professional rowing so I cannot say whether any rowing enthusiasts would find this machine useful to training for their sports. For any other fitness enthusiast, fighter, endurance/strength athlete, or couch potato I cannot recommend this machine highly enough.
