Bodymax Infiniti R100 Rowing Machine Review

Infiniti R100 is an amazing medium-budget rowing machine that has couple of dozens of built-in workout programs, loads of different resistance levels and this machine can also fold in half to help you save some space.

If you are looking for a rowing machine that can be used by multiple users (for example your whole family), then this is the machine of your choice!

The rower is built with robust and high-quality materials, and it is designed to last. Thanks to different workout programs and resistance levels, this machine can give anyone a great workout – from beginner to expert.

This product was in the research and development stage for ten years, Bodymax has thought through every feature as well as they have listened to what their customers wanted to.

Bodymax Infiniti R100 is using the latest technology in rowing machines. It has 42 different workout programs and 16 resistance levels. What makes it stand out from other tracking monitors is that there is also one race program and four pulse-controlled programs.

This rower is utilising air resistance system that is automatically controlled by the built-in machine’s computer. It means that resistance levels will automatically adjust throughout the workout.

Thanks to this feature, you won’t have to stop your workout to adjust resistance levels. Your workouts will be smooth and seamless, very close to an exercise you would have out on the water in a canoe. No matter how fit you are, this machine will push you to the limit and will help you progress.

When putting together, Bodymax Infiniti R100 is quite large and long – 237 cm tall and 50cm wide. It is quite large for a rower. But it allows taller and larger ones to complete full stroke and get the most out of the workout no matter weight or height.

Rower handles are ergonomically designed to make your workout more comfortable and rowing stroke more smooth. These handles feel like they were designed for our hands.

This rower comes with a heart rate monitor so that you can keep track of your heart rate and pace. Very useful for people who are willing to train at a specific intensity level be it for weight loss or endurance.

Another great feature of this monitor is that the machine will automatically adjust its resistance levels. This functionality will help you to maintain your target heart rate.

This rower is in the upper-medium budget category, which means that when you invest this amount of money (£699 on the time of writing this review), you should expect some nice extra features.

R100 display will show you:

  • Strokes per minute
  • Distance
  • Time elapsed
  • Calories Burned
  • Power in watts
  • Average pace for 500m
  • Resistance level

One of these features is data storage for 5 users. Most machines won’t have any data storage for multiple users, and most of them come with no storage at all. Bodymax Infinity R100 can store workout information for up to 5 users. Your family members can all use this rower and track their progress with no hesitation.

On the downside – this machine will produce noise when rowing. Although, thanks to a combination of magnetic and air resistance – this machine will be more quieter than most of the rowers on the market at the moment. The noise you will get from Infinity R100 will be very little and soothing.

This machine has been built with solid high quality materials and a durable frame. It is quiet enough for you not to disturb your family or neighbours, it can accommodate users up to 150kg, it is long enough to accommodate users above 6ft1, and it can also fold in half to help you save space. Truly an amazing piece of machinery designed to last for years.

There are also optional extras you can choose when buying Infinity R100. There is a Infiniti Heart Rate Transmitter that will allow you to send your heart rate information wirelessly to the machines computer. Please note that in order to use the heart rate control programs, you need to separately buy this transmitter.

What customers say about Bodymax Infiniti R100 Rowing Machine

Great rower! Very easy to assemble thanks to clear instructions. Amazing and challenging workout. Only real weakness is seat bearings.

Great alternative to more expensive rowers such as Concept 2. It has plenty of resistance levels, it suits large users, it can fold in half so you can have it at home! Amazing!

This rowers build quality is in a league of it’s own. Smooth and quiet rowing action and additional hear rate monitor makes it my favourite rowing machine.

Solid construction, very affordable price tag for its quality and features, very silent, amazing display.

Conclusion

We got a bit disappointed with optional extra such as heart rate transmitter. The machine itself is already in an upper-cost bracket. Buying additional pulse transmitter that cost £25 might put off someone who is already happy to spend £699 for a machine. This machine has been built for home use and for users who want to increase their fitness levels at the comfort of their homes.

Another thing we notice, this rower is quite heavy. Make sure when it arrives – you have someone helping you out to assemble it and move around. Regarding mobility, there are no wheels attached to a rower making it a bit harder to move it.

Apart from these couple of minor downsides, Bodymax Infiniti R100 is a fantastic high-quality rower. It will allow you to enjoy quite, smooth workout and will make your workout a challenge. In general Bodymax rowing machines are at the top of the range when it comes to quality rowing machines.

Recommended for everyone from beginner to expert.
