Super excited to start my rowing machine journey. I'm sure this will be my first rowing machine in a long line of them. Love the simplicity and ease of use. Just set your resistance, pick up the "oars" and start rowing. I do wish the resistance went a LITTLE bit higher as I'm working out at a 9 or 10 out of a max of 12 resistant levels my first few days using the machine. I was pretty shocked at what a great workout it was for my quads which have been relatively neglected the last few years. I don't really feel much after burn anywhere in my arms, back, or shoulders, so that's a little disappointing. I'll keep experimenting with resistance levels and different rowing stances. Overall an excellent buy. A time saver for sure as I used to have to do 30-45 minutes on my elliptical and another 30-45 of resistance training. Now I have a super time saving option if I'm short on time to combine my cardio AND resistance training. A follow up to a previous post: I have no idea what incline he/she is referring too. If there is any incline it would just be that the seat sits up higher because it's cushioned. Overall no incline to speak of. (SMS). For a beginner or rowing enthusiast on a budget, don't hesitate! No doubt there are more advanced machines out there for a LOT more.
I bought this a month ago to add extra cardio to my workouts. So far I like it! It was pretty easy to put together. Easy to use. I like the orbital motion of the arms. You can make the tension easy for a a cardio workout or increase for a muscle working workout.
