I am really excited to use this product. I have had several sports injuries and cannot put pressure on certain parts of my body long enough to get a good workout. I just ordered this product as it works out the entire body without undue strain.
I am already strong in the upper body, so I was looking for a well made rower. And I was happy to see that this rower is well made. But I did find one weak point, and it didn't take long. The bushing in the rower's handlebars are made of soft vinyl, and started to give way almost instantly. They need to be made of nylon or strong material. To me, this is a easy fix
The name is misleading I have a work related back injury and thought this was a apparatus for the spine when it is actually a core apparatus after it arrived I immediately watched the DVD to see how I was going to correct my spine and the secret is abdominal training core strengthening exercises. I am a beginner with little to no core strength so I haven't really got to use this correctly but, I can review the product construction: It is made from solid wood on the exterior, the interior looks to be veneered plywood and pine slats, this is covered with a polyurethane foam 100% then upholstered in a vinyl nylon fabric, to me it feels more like plastic then leather, all the handles are cast aluminum and the strap nylon. It is very solid I weigh 200+ pounds so it creaked when I sat on it. I did a couple exercises and realized I'm not ready for this but can work up to it. as for the questions that follow I don't have any friends or colleagues I'm an injured worker with a work related injury all alone.
I got these after I tried 3 others from a sporting goods store. These are SO comfortable! Thick chinchilla-soft fluff padding around the ankle :) I would have given these 5 stars, but I haven't gone skating with them yet. They just came in last night. I am SO excited to use them!!! With my pants pulled down over the boot tops, looking down, they just look like athletic shoes :)
