Good piece of kit! Well built and reasonably priced. Arrived quick and it took less than an hour to assemble it. Easy to use as well for a beginner as me. Would recommend it to everyone!

It was very easy to build the machine after it arrived. I have started working out straight away. Very smooth rowing. A bit dissapointed that heart rate transmitter is not included. Apart from that – it is an excellent rowing machine

Very tough resistance levels. If you are looking for a hard workout – this machine is definitely for you

I am over 6’2” and I have some issues with maintaining good form due to leg length. Apart from this – it is an amazing machine. Absolutely in love with it!


This rowing machine is a fantastic pick for everyone who is looking to buy a mid-range rowing machine. It has got advanced functionality; it has plenty of resistance levels to suit users from beginners to advanced; it has even been certified up to strict German standards.

The computer on this machine is large; it has plenty of built-in programs that will give you an amazing workout! Yes, this machine is a bit pricey, but you get a lot with it as well. It is not as expensive and great as Concept 2, but it is one of the most advanced models on the market.
