Product Description

Amazon.com

Do you have limited workout space but plenty of motivation? Turn to the Stamina 1205 precision rowing machine, which offers a compact footprint of only 32.5 inches wide by 48 inches long, but offers the same terrific workout as machines twice its size. The Stamina 1205 mimics the smooth motion of rowing on the water, with a padded seat that glides on a ball-bearing roller system, rowing arms whose resistance is adjusted by hydraulic cylinders, and foam grips that keep your hands stable and comfortable. The multifunction fitness monitor, meanwhile, keeps you motivated and on track to reach your fitness goals, showing your speed, distance, time, stroke count, and calories burned. And users will love the thick padded seat and pivoting footplates, which combine to provide comfort and support during your workout. Other features include a precision extruded aluminum beam, a silver steel frame, a five-year warranty on the frame, and a 90-day warranty on parts.

About Rowing
Rowing provides an efficient, effective, low-impact workout that utilizes all the major muscle groups, including the back, legs, arms, abdominals and buttocks. It is also one of the best exercises for building a strong back, as well as one of the most effective low-impact aerobic exercises for increasing your metabolism. As a result, you can efficiently burn calories and fat without impacting your joints.

The continuous, non-impact movement of rowing can be broken down into three phases: the starting point is called the catch phase, followed by the drive phase, the finish, and the recovery. In the catch phase, knees are bent with shins vertical and shoulders and arms reaching forward. This phase mimics the point where the oars are being placed in the water. The drive phase is initiated by the legs. As the legs extend, your arms remain straight until the knees are mostly extended. Then the elbows flex bringing the oar handles into the upper stomach. In the finish, the legs are fully extended, your shoulders are back, your elbows are flexed, and the oar handle is against the upper stomach. For the recovery, your knees don't flex until after your hands pass over your knees and your arms and shoulders reach forward to begin the catch phase again.

Because rowing is an impact-free activity, it can be a lifelong form of exercise. It is always best to exercise in your target heart rate zone (70 to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate).

The seat glides very smoothly and the machine is very quiet.
MVC
The hydraulic shocks were impossible to move at the lowest tension setting, and if I did get them back it wasn't an even pull back for both arms.

It was totally easy to assemble and it took me about 2 hours to put it together.

I bought a used rower years ago and came to work it several times a week. I'm a busy person, so I don't have time for a sophisticated work out routine. I just want to work one machine for both strength and aerobic training. Rowing is great for this purpose. When I broke my rower, I started shopping. Unfortunately, even used rowers are over $100. I struggled with this model versus the smaller ones that stand up vertically for easy storage. I couldn't find any reviews on this that addressed the storage question. Finally, I chose it because it didn't look like I could break it from normal usage, whereas the kind that fold nicely seem flimsy.

Pros:

- This machine is very sturdy. It's solid, stable, and does not rock at all when in use.

- It is amazingly quiet. The only sound is the whisper of the pistons. I can use it with the TV on normal volume.

- The seat is very comfortable. I sat on it for 30 minutes the first time with no discomfort.

Cons:

- It does not fold, collapse, or stand up vertically. It just sits on the floor. It would be very awkward to try to store it under a bed. Don't lift the back end too far or the plug for the timer will bend. This is why it only has 4 stars.

- The front bumper pads are just stuck on. You can't drag it backwards without them popping off. The back ones also just sit on there, but they face sideways, so they won't come off.

- The instructions were difficult. My wife and I kept flipping back and forth in the manual to figure out to which bolt each step of the direction referred.

The work out was great. I really like using this machine. I only wish I had a better place to put it when I'm not using it.

Probably one of the best rowers I've ever used.

It was easy to assembly, and looks and feels really solid.

Lots of adjustment in the "power level" - from really easy to really hard.

I'm 6' and it is definitely large enough (will easily work for taller people as well). My wife is 5'3", and she finds it easy to use too.

Highly recommended.

I had one of these similar many years ago and let it go at a garage sale. Dumb idea! As I get older, this Stamina machine has replaced it and is giving me all the exercise I need. Good to set in front of the tv and row for 30 minutes, I've gone from a size 40 to a size 36 waist. I like the hydraulic part of it and the adjustability.

The first month I had this rower was great. Very smooth, lots of resistence, quiet, etc. I used it 6 days a week for 30-45 minutes a day.

Then, the squeaks came. Very loud creaks and squeaks that were hard on the ears. I have to keep a can of WD40 nearby when I use it to lubricate the joints periodically, and even then, there are some noises that are coming from inside the shocks that I cannot lubricate.

Then, the seat guides started disintegrating. The plastic wheels under seat actually have cracks and pits forming in them, which gives a very choppy, loud and bumpy travel of the seat. Not smooth at all.

Then, the left shock started going flat and losing resistence. There would be no resistence until the shock was pulled half-way back. This makes for a difficult row, when you have your right arm with constant resistence and your left arm with no resistence, but then sudden resistence at some point.

I emailed Stamina, and they are sending me replacement parts under warranty. From what I have read here, however, I feel the uneven wear of the shocks is something that will persist, and it also sounds like the seat guides are not made that well either. Thus, I expect to have similar problems in the future.

For the money, it is a good deal, and a good chance to experiment with rowing to see if you like it. If you want to stick with it and row more intensely, however, you should go for a non-hydraulic rower and use one that uses water or wind for more even resistence.

I thought the packaging, instructions, ease of assembly were adequate and nothing too difficult.

Worked well at the beginning but both shocks lost tension in little over 3 months of regular use. Manufacturer charges full price for replacement because warranty is only 3 months. Overall quality and durability not up to mark expected from exercise equipment.

I first purchased this same rower over 20 years ago as therapy for a back and shoulder injury. It helped a great deal to aid in healing and regaining full strength on both sides of my body as each rowing arm is separately adjustable. After a year's use, I was probably in the best physical condition of my life. Unfortunately, I sold it when I felt I no longer needed it. I now have the need to exercise again (old age and not enough exercise) and was delighted to see this rower was still available. I received it quickly (love Amazon), it assembled in less than an hour and I am back to rowing. Great rower for the price!!!

I purchased this rower about two weeks ago to get in better shape. I am 6' 3" and weigh 200 lbs, so well within the listed limits of the machine. I am by no means strong and basically have done no consistent exercise for years, thus I would only use it on the easier settings. Although I had read negative reviews I assumed I should not be overly concerned as I only needed use of the rower for about 6 months as I am moving overseas. I figured I did not need amazing quality- just something that won't fall apart in the next 6 months. After using the machine 30 minutes a day for only 1 week the shocks began to give way after they warmed up. This would mean that after exercising for 15 minutes there would be no tension in the handle bars and thus eliminating any effective use of the machine for exercise. I am disappointed with this product and would return it if I could but I believe my only option is to contact Stamina's customer service and have the faulty parts replaced- at my shipping expense. I will now contact them by email with a link to this review and see what happens. I'll keep you posted.
