Rated 4 out of 5Â by pcallejas Good value for the price!
I bought this bc my workplace has no gym and I wanted to start taking gym lunches. I put it in the corner of our Coast Guard base's locker room and it has been a pleasant surprise. I open the Netflix app on my phone, place the phone on top of the monitor and start rowing. 30 minutes and a good sweat have passed before I know it. The fan is loud, so I have to watch Netflix with subtitles. I was listening to audiobooks for awhile with headphones and was still able to listen to the narrator with little difficulty with a higher volume. It does look flimsily made, but so far has proven quite sturdy.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Javi Pretty good overall!
I bought the Stamina 1399 and was pretty easy to assemble in an hour by myself. By the way I am not the handiest person in the world. I really like it except after a week the calorie counter wasn't working. I contacted customer service and they were good. They sent me a new counter but we realized it's something in the wiring. I'm not going to send back since this will be a pain to ship back. I can live with calorie counter since I don't really trust those things to begin with! I hope the company resolves the wiring issue soon because I know for 300 bucks some people won't be as forgiving as I was.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by KorJac Great rower at a great price!!
My wife and I bought this a few weeks ago and are very pleased with the rower. It was very easy to put together, is very stable and provides a good workout. The quality of the materials is very good for the price we paid. The seat has been a little hard to get used to, but it may be because we have never rowed before. It seems to get more comfortable with each workout. I have arthritis in both knees so the types of workouts I can do are limited. This is a very low impact workout that does not cause me pain and will get me into great shape. My wife and I are very pleased with this purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by pastrygirl Great rower for the $$
Previously I had owned an elliptical. I had used a rower in a gym loved it and preferred the workout to the elliptical. The only other cardio I do is jump rope. I wanted to see if I could find a reasonably priced and stumbled upon this one as one of the top 5 rowers to buy. l also did not want to spend too much. Based on other reviews I purchased this rower and couldn't be happier. It offers good resistance, the digital read out is easy to see and read, I find the seat to be comfortable enough for my bony butt, even after 45 minutes. I think for the price, this is a pretty great rower.
