It has been built for users that would expect a gym quality workout from their machine, being made with a solid quality aluminium frame while also being foldable in half when not in use. By also saving some space besides everything else it does, JTX Freedom mixes the reliability of gym-level equipment with the convenience of bringing it home, using it whenever, and progressing at your own pace.

JTX Freedom is built from a good quality, robustly reinforced aluminium, allowing the machine to accommodate larger users of up to 20 stone weight (130 kg). The machine itself is quite long and guarantees 6ft2 users and above the comfort of completing a full rowing stroke, once again adding to the wide accessibility of this rower model.

When you assemble the rower and sit on it for the first time, you can easily adjust the foot pedals and console position to suit your size and preference. The seat is also well-made and generously padded, promoting and being prepared for long-term, intensive use.

The handles are ergonomically made so that the bar can be brought right to your chest for the full rowing stroke motion, all the while providing a secure, comfortable grip. Pedals also have 6 different adjustments, so that besides permitting everyone to adjust to their own preference, the possibility of that preference changing can also be accommodated by a variety of positions.

What customers say about JTX Freedom

This is a great rower. Feels smooth and is a good workout for me and my partner. Took about an hour to assemble by myself.

Very good rower so far. I have used it for about a month. It does have good programs. Amazing for interval training.

This rower has amazing resistance level. I am happy to work myself up from resistance 1 to 16. Very good workout for my body.

Can be a bit heavy and difficult to move it around. Awesome bit of kit. Very solid design. It fit nicely in a garage gym. This machine has professional rower quality.

With the chest strap they give you, it feels like having a gym instructor who knows what pace is best for you!

Conclusion

Before buying this machine, keep in mind that it is quite heavy, although mostly attributable to the solid construction. You might have some trouble moving it around if you are not fit enough, although that could be a good measure of your progress with the machine! This machine also doesn’t have wheels that would make it easier to move it around.

Apart from those minor downs, we are very satisfied with this machine. It is a high end rower that brings amazing range of progress and accessibility to everyone, being also designed to last for long time. It is quite pricey, but it is worth it if you are planning to work hard. With the wireless chest strap, it’ll help you work smart as well.
