ProForm R600 Rowing Machine Review

R600 is a great indoor rowing machine that was design to last long rowing sessions. The machine also has a great feature that determines the amount of resistance based on your pace. The machine is designed to provide you a full body cardio workout and help you grow muscles in the comfort of your home.

The rower is built from durable high quality materials. The rail is made from aluminium/steel so you bet it will last you for a while. The rest of the machine features hard plastic and very tight bolts.

If you order this machine off Amazon, it will arrive within a weeks time right to your doorstep. All machine parts will be boxed as well as the box will include user manual and step by step assembly manual. If you have got no power tools, don’t worry, you will still be able to assemble the machine at home on your own. Usually it takes around an hour to assemble it.

Don’t forget to register this machine within 28 days of purchase to take full advantage of a 2 year parts and labour warranty! Also bear in mind that this machine is quite heavy, so please be very careful when moving the box around.

ProForm R600 features 10 levels of air based resistance. Resistance also goes up as you increase your pace. This is great for everyone who are looking for more real-like rowing experience. It will also help you get more fit and healthy without the need to go out of your home.

In order to provide maximum comfort during your rowing session, the seat is cushioned and is able to adjust. Handles are cushioned with special soft touch creme. To protect your foot from trauma and keep them firmly in place, the machine has large pivoting footplates with adjustable straps.

ProForm R600 can accommodate large users up to 115 kg of weight or just above 18 stones. The machine is also promising to let users who are above 6ft to perform a full rowing stroke without any discomfort whatsoever.

One of the downsides that we noticed is that the screen of this machine is not back lit which will make it harder for users to see stats in poorly lit rooms.

  • 24 pre-set workout programmes
  • Ergonomic seat and handle design
  • Foldable design
  • Quiet in operation


  • Screen is not back lit
