From the Manufacturer
Provides a cardiovascular workout to tone and strengthen arms, legs, shoulders and back.
The rower has an easy to use console that includes readouts for distance, time, calories, stroke count and strokes per minute giving you all the information you need to get a great total body workout. The console uses a single AA battery and requires no external power supply. Making this rower both energy efficient and convenient.
Quiet and Comfortable
The patented Eddy Current Drive System delivers smooth and ultra-quiet resistance and the belt retrieval is slack free, even during intense workouts. There are 5 levels of resistance that are conveniently controlled by a resistance knob located directly below the display. If you’re looking for a rower to use without turning up the TV or waking up the family, this rower is a great fit.
For comfort, the rower includes padded hand grips, a comfortable 14-inches injected foam seat supporting users up to 300 pounds and large swivel foot pedals with Velcro straps.
Quick Fold for Easy Storage
No tools are required to fold and store the rower. Simply remove the locking pin, fold the rower and replace the locking pin to lock the frame in the folded position. Once folded it rolls on the transport wheels located underneath the footpads. A great product when floor space is limited after use. Compactly folds to a mere 34 x 19 x 64-inches (L x W x H) from it's unfolded dimensions of 90 x 18.5 x 23-inches (L x W x H).

Top Customer Reviews
Putting this thing together is a piece of cake. It literally took me 15-30 minutes. The main piece, the big gray box that houses all the pulleys and such, is already assembled for you. All I had to do was attach the seat, bars, etc. (The instructions were a little confusing when it came to the seat; I actually thought they hadn't sent the bolts for it and was very upset. Turns out the instructions were just a little poorly done for that particular piece, so if you get the same thing, don't worry!)
There are several different tension settings, so you can choose what works best for you.
And possibly my favorite thing - the seat and long bar fold up easily so storing it, or just reducing it's footprint, is really easy.
The computer part is supposed to show you strokes/min, a timer, estimated calories, etc. You put in the included battery and pop the unit into place. Mine has never worked. Oh, when I start rowing, numbers show up. But only on the timer - everything else stays blank - and the timer seems to work randomly. It will say 2:17 for a very long time, then decide to work for about four seconds, then stop again, etc. I have to use a watch in order to actually time my workout. Obviously it doesn't affect the workout, but it is disappointing.
If I get into a good rhythm and start pulling with any force (and it's just a fabric strap you're pulling) I find that the front actually lifts off the ground. I only weigh 135lbs, so I definitely didn't expect to pull the unit right off the ground! I actually had to find some heavy weights and put them on the front feet in order to keep that from happening.
After about 7 or 8 workouts, I started to notice a bit of noise when I was using it. After I pull, and I start to move forward, there's something like a squeak or a squeal. I assume it's from the pulleys inside the machine, and it's very distracting. I don't expect a silent machine, especially in this price range, but I like to try to watch tv while I'm rowing and the constant squeal/squeak gets extremely frustrating.
All in all, you get what you pay for. You're going to get a decent workout, it gets heart rate up, and it's much better for cardio than an elliptical or treadmill. (In my opinion.) But you're not going to get quite the same quality of experience you would if you shelled out the extra money for a higher end model like the Concept 2.
The only thing that I think I would change is that the console doesn't have a back light. So if that would light up it would be easier to read but that is only because I have my gym in the basement where it is darker.
I have no tried to fold this up since I have room to leave it down, so I don't know how easy or hard that is.
I bought the mat for it to sit on but haven't had to use it. I have it placed on a cement floor and it doesn't move around while rowing.
So far so good. Not sure how this compares to the more expensive ones but I really like this for my first rowing machine.
Simple Digital Display lasts a very long time one one battery
No chain, the pull mechanism is a strap of fabric.
Plastic wheels support the seat and pull movement. Mine have note worn out yet but they're not that smooth and they do feel as if they have worn down significantly during the year that I have used my rower.
The pull movement creates no momentum as with a fan or water resisting model, so you really cant build up much inertia and each pull feels like you're starting from a stp, which is not mych like real rowing.
All in all it's a good unit but if you're looking for something that will really take a beating and last a long time and also emulate the feel of rowing much better, get a concept 2 model D or E. I wish i had spent the extra $400 at the time, because now I have to sell my current rower first. Interested?
I read some other reviews and found out that the lifting was because I didn't put the pin in that holds it up for storage. I didn't realize it would go back in while in user mode. The machine is now totally different!! I can go as fast as I like with tension staying the same always. I am moving my ranking to five stars. For the price it is all I could ask for!!!
