**03/30/2017 update** I've been trying to get a part to fix the rower since December 2016. I've emailed and called multiple times with no resolution from manufacturer. Will update if anything changes.
I purchased the Velocity Exercise Magnetic Rower on Jan 1st 2016 and it died on my December 3rd 2016. The manufacturer (CAP Barbell) will not respond to emails on how to fix.
I have used the Velocity Exercise Magnetic Rower at a very minimum of once a week since I received it. I'm 6'2", 200 lbs and it has worked great for me. I had been very happy with this product until it broke down. The CAP Barbell customer service experience has been sub-par. I'd be fine with replacing the motor if the cost was reasonable but I can no longer get a response from CAP Barbell.
I just hope I didn't waste all this money on the Velocity Exercise Magnetic Rower that the manufacturer, CAP Barbell, will not support.
Quiet - the main reason I went with magnetic vs air resistance is the noise level, and this delivers being very quiet indeed. My gf uses it in the room next to our bedroom and I can't hear it when I'm awake let alone have it wake me up if I'm sleeping.
Size - this is about as compact as I imagine it could be made and fits nicely where I wanted it. That being said about the only negative I have with it is also due to it's size or maybe configuration. I'm 6'-1" tall with long arms and long legs (35" inseam) and while the seat rail is plenty long with 3-4" of travel remaining when I'm at full extension, the part the could be better is the other end. When at the "catch" as the rowers call it, the full forward position, I do not have enough room to have my arms straight out in front of me or cannot fully scrunch up my lower body. In other words the foot position is too close to being underneath the hand bar, the bar should be further forward or the foot rests further back. I have adjusted to this configuration, but could be more optimal with some design changes.
Quality - built very well, and was very easy to assemble although instructions could be a little better. As others noted mine arrived with the display hanging out, but was not damaged in any way and was simple to pop back into place.
The bad first:
As others have noted, the packaging sucks and the unit did arrive with some damage. The damage was to metal fortunately, and was minor. I decided to pound out the damage myself and that was that.
I have found the need to repeatedly force one of the black traction shoes onto the front horizontal support, and may simply glue it on. During use the unit rocks slightly from side to side, which causes the shoe to wiggle off.
The heart rate monitor and programmable computer do what they should. However, the calories burned function is useless as I can’t input any data about myself, like weight, age and so on. The recovery function is also mystifying. No matter how many times I watch it run, I can’t figure out how it is making its calculation, so ignore it.
The above being noted, overall, for the price and with my own reasonable expectations in mind, I am quite satisfied with this machine.
I am a 49 year old woman and first-time rower, and I have been both in excellent and rather fatty shape. I started using the machine on the fatty end. In my current, slightly fitter shape I get a solid, balanced workout. I also think that for anyone (male or female, of any age) who is not super fit, this machine could provide a strong, challenging workout. I have used ski machines, treadmills and stationary bikes and this rower definitely offers a better whole body workout.
I use all of the built in programs, the heart rate monitor, and the stroke count. The choice of what to base my workout on helps me to tailor my workouts and stay interested.
Final note: if you have never used a rower, take the time to learn how to use the machine. Take it easy, pay full attention to your body, and make every effort to use good form. I went through a period of having my neck hurt, then my lower back, then my legs. All these pains were due to injury pains from bad form, versus normal sore muscles.
