AsVIVA RA11 Rowing Machine Review

RA11 Rowing Machine is a solid and light German machine. It is the ultimate training machine that will help you tone your body as well as gain lean muscles such as back muscles, leg muscles, abs and sides.

The design of AsVIVA RA11 is straightforward and futuristic. It will look great in your home gym. The machine is made from high-quality materials, and it has been an engineer to withstand long workout sessions.

If you order this machine from Amazon, it will arrive boxed right to your doorstep. P.S. the delivery is free for the UK. Inside the box, you will find everything you need to assemble this machine at home – user manual with assembly instruction, tools for assembly and machine parts themselves. It usually takes about over an hour to assemble this machine on your own.

AsVIVA RA11 features magnetic resistance to provide users with its tensions. Resistance is manually adjustable via the knob at the front of the machine. There are eight different resistance levels from lower tensions to higher. It is a perfect choice for everyone from beginner to more advanced and fit rowers.

The seat on this rower is ergonomically designed and is padded for your convenience. This ensures the whisper quiet and smooth gliding along the rail during the workout. The pedals have a unique Velcro strap on it to keep your feet firmly in place as well as they are covered in unique anti-slip surface to keep you safe and comfortable during the workout.

AsVIVA RA11 comes with a multi-functional display that is attached to the machine at the top of the flywheel. The screen is quite large, and you won’t have any trouble with reading stats from it. The display will show you the following workout stats:

  • Time
  • Distance
  • Calories
  • Stroke count
  • RPM
  • Speed
  • Pulse

On the other hand, the screen doesn’t have any light up so you will have some issues with checking your stats in poorly lit premises. Not a big deal for a rower of this price and this good quality.

After you have finished with your workout, you can take full use of this machines foldable design. Release one pin and then lift the rail. For extra convenience with moving this machine around your place, it has wheels attached to the front of the device. You can put this machine away to the storage cupboard in times of when you are not working out.

What customers say about AsVIVA RA11

This is an extremely good machine that feels pretty solid. There are plenty of resistance levels to choose from and most people will be satisfied with it. This machine can even challenge people who consider themselves to be more fit than average. Also it is a very quite machine when compared to other rowers such as air resistance machines.

This machine runs silky smooth and is solid as a rock. The display is massive! Also as a great bonus it folds up easy. Amazing value for its price when compared with professional more expensive rowers.

The seat glides very smoothly on this rower! It is very comfortable to use this rower for long workout sessions. It feels sturdy and it doesn’t seem to look like it is going to break anytime soon. Also long warranty was the deal seal for me.

Very easy to move it around! I am very happy with it! Very smooth and is a great workout for me and my husband. The only problem is that display is quite dark and it is hard to see in dark room what is going on with my workout stats.


There is nothing bad that we can say about this machine apart from the display. It is solid construction and provides professional rowing experience for a very affordable price. At the time of the review, the machine cost £249, which makes it a great value for everyone.

This is a beginner friendly machine, but it can suit more advanced and fit rowers.
