Rated 5 out of 5Â by Steve007 Excellent equipment for the price!
I bought this a month ago and have used it 2-3 times weekly to supplement my running and other fitness activities. It definitely works different muscles in the legs and has helped me feel stronger as a runner.
For me to get my heart rate up, I really have to have a high tempo (30+ strokes a minute). The machine is smooth and not as loud as some reviews would have you believe. The seat is cushioned, but firm. I wear padded biking shorts and loose fitting gym shorts over them. So, your sit bones do get a little sore.
I was in good shape before I started using this. Now, after a month, my legs and forearms are finally conditioned to not hurt after using it for 25 minutes.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by karenj900 Decent rower for the price
I like the rowing machine. It is a bit small and I wonder if a taller person would have trouble with it but I am 5'5" and have no troubles. I love that it folds up and rolls away. The one issue that I have with it is that there is no way to increase the tension on the rower and the rower is quite loud when you are using it. But other than that it seems to be a good machine and I am glad I made this purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Plugged nickel Good $$$ value
Purchased about a month ago. Although it isn't a "professional gym" product (and it never claimed to be), it provides a very good low-impact cardio workout. Also does a decent total body toning workout including arms/shoulders, abs, back, and legs. Unit is well built and comfortable to use. Definitely could recommend if you
are in the market for this type of workout!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dw46 Works like I expected and wanted it to.
I have owned this machine for almost a month now and it seems to be built very well and it is very easy to operate. I bought it for me to use but my wife is using it too, she likes using it. Good investment.
