I have this ($199) from Walmart this past summer. I'm a power lifter with bad knees so treadmill runs started hurting my knees.

Here's the thing for some of the Amazon reviews that people are idiots.

Rowing machine are designed for endurance/power...it's not a quick 15 min workout like treadmill, etc.

Put the resistance on 10 and do continous rowing for 30 mins and most people will give up by this time.

The other thing with rower machines is YOUR FEET create the resistance. When you arch down, push back with your feet (thrusting motion) and you'll feel the pain in your quads.

Most idiots doing rowing machine don't even know how to optimize it efficidently.

Other than swimming, rowing machines are another excellent full body workout.

I've had mine for 6 months now and I use it 4-5 times weekly for warmups before heavy lifting and also for cardio.

Max user weight in Description is 220lbs. Says 250lbs also on the page. Reading through comments, it seems to be low on resistance even at max...

If you're one of the husky or buff types, you might look elsewhere...

It's cheap though to try out. Return if not to you're liking.

Working out is working out, but you'd most likely get more out of a better piece of equipment. You'd pay more too.

I bought one of these a few years ago and use it occasionally. It still works fine. If you're looking for something with all the bells and whistles, this isn't for you. If you want a basic rowing machine that will give you a decent workout, I'd recommend it for the price.

What's a good quality choice for a home-gym rower? All I've ever used is Rogue concept and those are $$$

Only a Concept 2 or may be a water rower are worth buying. Rowing is a mediative exercise to me. I chose my eyes and row an hour and time flies. You need to have the real rowing feeling to imagine that you are rowing thorough water. Air and water rowers give that by reducing resistance automatically as if your oar is out of water and then you are putting it back. I am sure that also has a huge impact on how quickly you feel tired. I stick to the natural.


It took me a lot to swallow a thousand dollar purchase (Concept 2 model D) but I no longer regret after burning so many calories). In January alone I am planning to burn 20000 calories as Concept 2 has a "Big Burn" challenge going on.

I didn't want to bring it up, but I'm a big guy and all these rowers and spin bikes say I'm too big to ride. I think I looked at all of them and after reading all the reviews, I just ordered a C2 from rogue. 9 times what this costs, but I know it's quality and will last... It holds up to 500lbs (which I'm far from) so I won't be scared using it. Wish I would have not wasted all the time looking and comparing and just decided earlier to get some Black Friday action from Rogue...

Buy once, cry once.

This thing has very little resistance, I'm no where near fit or strong. The build isn't strong, the rubber stopper falls off all the time. But not a show stopper since you never extend the seat out of the rail.
