Not bad for home equipment
 from Outside of Boston in the 'burbs,  Jul 22, 2011

My knees are shot from years of spinning and ballet. As a result I can no longer spin, ballet is proving to be a challenge and using the elliptical or treadmill sends me running home to pack on the ice. As a result, I started using the rowing machine (at the gym) to give my knees a break. Then I decided to purchase a rowing machine for home-use. I have to say, this isn't a bad piece of equipment, and it folds up which is great. The only negative I have to say is this: the tension settings are from 1-10 and to be honest, 10 isn't all that tough. I am in decent shape but by no means a tri-athlete and yet I could use a bit more tension. I wish the tension settings were a little harder or went up to say 15 or 20. Also, my husband is 5' 11" ; 190 lbs and is in very good shape (he's a contractor so he is quite strong) and he cannot use the machine as the tension is too flimsy for him. I would say that if you are a man who is in decent shape and likes to row recreationally outside (or uses the one in the gym), this is not a good piece of equipment for you. However, if you are a woman, who is looking to get in shape or is already in decent shape but has bad knees (like me) then this piece of equipment may just suffice.
