Bodymax Infiniti R90 Rowing Machine Review

Bodymax Infiniti R90 stands amongst one of the best indoor rowing machines in our books. It is easy to assemble,  made from durable materials, and it also supports heavy and tall users.

This machine is made from aluminium. It is an excellent and robust high-quality build. This rower has been designed to last for long. It even comes with a 2-year warranty so if something goes wrong within that period – you can get your machine get repaired free of charge.

The box that machines come in is well packaged and includes everything you need to put this machine together all by yourself. It has clear step-by-step instructions so you won’t be left alone in the void if you stuck at some point of assembly. Usually, it takes around 45 minutes to set everything up and start rowing.

Infiniti R90 resistance comes from magnets. Since it is a magnetic resistance rower – it is hushed. Sixteen different resistance levels go from very easy to very hard. On the downside is that the tracking monitor controls resistance, so you need to make sure you plug in your machine to make everything work properly.

To ensure you get the best comfortable rowing experience, R90 features strap-on pivoting pedals that will keep your feet in one place and protect you from trauma. Foot pedals can also be adjusted to fit the right size. The handlebar is cushioned and is featuring resistance adjustments button on it. The seat is contoured and ergonomically designed as well as it glides very smoothly.

The LCD monitor that comes with this machine is just amazing. It is a two-colour, back-lit screen that has a dozen of advanced functions. First of all, it can save user profiles. So you can use this machine with other family members and have a user profile each for ease of tracking progress.

The monitor comes with built-in 12 workout programs such as weight loss, toning etc. There are also challenges and races that will add a bit of competition for you. The LCD screen will show you the following stats:

  • Time
  • Distance
  • Speed
  • Stroke
  • Calories
  • Torque
  • Stroke per minute
  • Heart rate (optional)

After you finish your workout session, this rowing machine offers an easy-fold system that will let you fold it in half very quickly. At the front of the rower, there are transport wheels that are very helpful when you are moving this machine around your room/home gym/garage.

This machine is doing a great job of accommodating heavy and tall users. Users up to 120 kg and over 6ft2 will be able to complete full rowing stroke in great comfort.

Although this machine offers plenty of exciting features, we are disappointed that the heart rate monitor is optional. To use heart rate control programs on the monitor and keep track of your heart rate you need to purchase an additional wireless Infiniti Heart Rate Transmitter.

Please note that this machine must be plugged into the power socket when you are rowing. It is crucial because you control your resistance with an onboard monitor. If it is not connected to power – you can’t use one of the best features this machine is offering. You will need to find a space with electrical sockets to make this machine work.

And the last downside is that users who had a machine for a while complaining about seat squeaky noise. But it can easily be fixed with just a small touch of lubricant. Not a big issue at all and it can happen to any other machine if you use it regularly.
