I'm very happy with this equipment except for one thing: my feet tend to slide out of the velcro grippers. In a 45 minute work-out my feet slip out probably about three times. It doesn't seem like a lot but when you're working out and you have to stop to tighten the grips, it's annoying. Plus, they should allow for more tightness because, I don't know, maybe I have small feet or too narrow. BUT! That being said, the workout itself is great! The tension knob allows for an easy aerobic workout or a full on muscular workout in deeper knob tension. I do recommend this machine. I get a great workout. I'm just going to have to figure out added means to keep the feet grips in place. : )

Bought this rower about 6 months ago and it does work good. However, we have had problems with the "elbow" portion of the handles. We first noticed plastic shavings on the floor and even though the company sent us new ones, we still get shavings and it won't be long before the plastic washer wears down completely.

I've been using this machine for a couple weeks now and it's great! I like the rowing motion better than other machines I have used at the gym because it feels more like real rowing. I gave it four stars instead of five because the foot pedals are a little awkward and I wish the resistance could go higher. I am already using it on the 9th resistance level (goes up to 12) and I am really out of shape right now due to an injury. However for the price, you can't beat this machine. Also super easy assembly. I did it by myself in no time and I'm not very handy.

This was the first piece of exercise equipment I've ever purchased and overall I'm content with it. The only thing I wish it had was a mechanism to make the workout more difficult on the lower body. The hydraulic cylinder works fine for making the workout more difficult for the upper body. I have used resistance bands to anchor the seat to the base of the monitor stand - as a result, when my seat moves back when I row, I now have some resistance. I prop up my phone on the monitor and watch shows while I row to make the hour go by. It's good cardio. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
