Skandika Unisex Elite Pro Rowing Machine Review

Unisex Elite Pro rower is a premium machine that is made to deliver you professional rowing workout at the comfort of your home. It offers smooth rowing action, long stroke, adjustable resistance and plenty more options. It is also a great value machine for it’s price, that is £349 at the time of the review, down from £769!

At it’s core, machine has a turbine air system that gives you tension. Materials that the machine is made from are coated aluminium and they are proven to last for long.

After ordering Elite Pro on the Amazon, it will come boxed right to your door. Be careful handling the box as it is quite heavy, around 40 kilograms. Make sure a friend or a member of family is helping you with moving it. Inside the box you will find user manual, instruction manual and all parts required to fully assemble the machine. Usually it takes around an hour to assemble the machine and start using it. Having power tools might speed up the process a bit.

Skandika Unisex Elite Pro resistance comes from an air turbine that is located at the front of the machine. You can manually adjust the resistance and choose between 8 levels, from easy to hard. Choose the right resistance to suit your fitness needs. Also with air resistance, the harder you row the more tension you get.

The pedals of Elite Pro are made from non-slip material that will let you have longer and safer workouts. The seats are padded and ergonomically designed to bring you more comfort, on top of that they are mounted to ball bearings that lets you glide smoothly along the rail.
