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).
From the Manufacturer
Row Your Way to Fit Living
The fitness community’s migration back to the former king of cardio, the high-quality rowing machine, continues to gain support—for good reason. After trying any Stamina Rowing Machine, you’ll understand why our line of rowers is so popular.
Combined with Stamina’s commitment to engineering excellent products, advances in rowing machine technology have resulted in comfortable, easy-to-use rowers that perform reliably and provide the low-impact, full-body cardio fitness workout your body craves. While weighing the value of a Stamina rower, you’re naturally wondering if it will let you shed those extra pounds and work your way toward a chiseled body—and the mental & emotional benefits that stem from a stronger, healthier you.
You’re asking yourself smart questions about Stamina’s quality rowing machines:
Can I really sculpt my body without going to the gym?
Will I get condition both my upper and lower body at once?
Will I get an efficient, effective aerobic workout that burns calories?
Can I get the benefits of a challenging cardio workout without hurting myself?
The answer is yes. With an in-home rower, you’ve got all you need to shape a beautiful body. Rowers work all major muscle groups in both the lower and upper body, pushing your heart rate and burning more calories per hour than other residential exercise equipment. Finally, the low-impact motion minimizes joint stress, reducing injury risks.
With clear benefits and value, it seems your final question should be which Stamina rowing machine is the perfect choice?

- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
