    Demo of Stamina Rower

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:16 MinsSo far, so good. I was a little upset that there weren't any video reviews for this product, (youtube, from the company itself etc.) so I promised myself that I'd make a video demonstration for others to judge.The basic stuff you need to know: There are 12 levels of resistance (I was using resistance level 8).The computer tells you how many complete rows you have performed, time performed, calories burned or you can scan through all three (My computer didn't work when it first arrived, but after a solid punch it woke up and started working). The resistance is nice. You'll get a good workout with this inexpensive machine. Storage is convenient, but don't be fooled, 35 pounds is heavy to move around from room to room. Keep the machine close to where you plan on using it. Finally, the footstraps were a major complaint. My complaint about the footstraps is that it doesn't hold your feet securely against the footrests. The clicking noise you hear in... 5/5 Louie the Italian Jew "Lou da Joo" (New York, NY) - See all my reviews, September 25, 2010

    A fantastic rower for this price!

    0 5/5 Linda (United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 Rowing Machine (Sports) .PROS:a. Real rowing (oar-like) action, rather than just pulling on a single T-bar.b. Comfortable even with tall people (I'm 6'1').c. Adjustable rowing tension.d. A very sturdy, rigid, and well-built frame.e. Easy to assemble.f. Takes little room to use.g. Very low cost (one hundred twenty dollars).CONS:a. The seat is not well padded.b. The unit creaks and squeaks a bit until it is warmed-up.c. No instructions explaining how to actually row properly. (I found some great videos and info on the Web, however, that instruct as to how to use rowing machines).You simply cannot beat this Stamina Body Trac Rowing Machine at this very low cost -- it is an amazing deal! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 20, 2006

    WaterRower

    an exceptional machine

    The waterrower is an excellent machine that is exceptionally designed and provides an outstanding workout. I have owned one for about 10 years, and my wife and I both use it regularly. In the entire time I've owned it, the only parts I've had to replace have been the monitor batteries and the double-sided tape that fastens the monitor wire brackets to the frame. I found the workout it provides to be deceptive at first--until I stood up after using it the first several times, I didn't realize just how intense the workout had been! If you've used other rowing machines, you're in for a treat when you try this one--there is absolutely no shock to the shoulders or arms at the beginning of a stroke (even from rest). The footrest is rock solid and easily adjustable for foot size; the frame is long enough to accommodate very tall rowers (I've had friends up to 6' 4" use it without banging into the stops); the components are rugged and last a long time (at least 10 years so far); and the... 5/5 nucpiper "RNS" (SW Michigan) - See all my reviews This review is from: WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine in Ash Wood with S4 Monitor (Sports) The waterrower is an excellent machine that is exceptionally designed and provides an outstanding workout.

    Ok but with some reservations, limited comparison w Concept 2

    Update - Water rower sent me a new sensor and disk which fixed the computer. It was relatively easy to install. I would like to upgrade my rating to 4. Everyone likes it and uses it. Why not a five? My remaining nits, which really shouldn't discourage people from buying it are:1) The footrests. Yup still catches the shoes, even though I changed to ones with narrower heels. I think they could fix this by angling the edges outwards. A bit more substantive design would also be nice.2) The computer - Its kinda basic. It will count calories per hour as you row, but won't give you a total calorie count. Additionally, I use the rower when watching movies in the dark. It would be great if there were a backlight just to check how you are doing. I use my cellphone light to check.3) I've figured out why the feel of the pull is not perfectly smooth. Basically, there is a wheel where the strap goes around (imagine a ribbon wound around a wheel).

    Best rower on the market

    I researched rowing machines for a while before deciding on this one. I was a competitive rower in college, and used to use the rowing tanks (for technique) and the Concept2 ergometers (for fitness). I always thought that there must be a way to combine the true feel of rowing with a rowing machine. Part of why rowing was so attractive to me was the feeling of pulling the blade through the water, the sound of the water, as well as the tremendous workout you can expect.Fast-forward about 20 years, and I was trying to find a decent rowing machine for my home gym (that is to say, the FIRST piece of equipment for my planned home gym!). I had my mind set on a Concept2, as that is what I used at various gyms throughout the years, as well as when I was rowing competitively. I almost pulled the trigger, however, I decided to check out some comparisons, as well as do my due diligence on an expensive purpose. I found that the WaterRower was highly recommended, even by Olympic-class... 5/5 siddhartha "siddhartha" (Northern Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine in Ash Wood with S4 Monitor (Sports) I researched rowing machines for a while before deciding on this one.

    Body-Solid

    Does exactly what is advertised

    I wanted to get a good quality row machine. I've owned Body-Solid equipment in the past and love their "Lifetime Warranty". The box is rather heavy, but not so bad that you can't move it by yourself. Free shipping on an item like this, plus the 40% off makes it a steal.The instructions to assemble this are terrible. They give you two sheets to make sure you received all the parts, then another sheet just showing a full overview of how things go together. No words. I've put things like this together before, so no big deal for me, but for someone inexperienced, it may be a small challenge. It'll take about an hour to assemble.The quality of the machine is what I expected. It'll hold up for several years. Then once/if any of the parts start to wear out, just call up Body-Solid and order replacement parts....LIFETIME WARRANTY!!!I was able to do my first workout on the machine the same day I put it together. I was sore the next day...it works... 5/5 Jeff True (Lexington, KY United States) - See all my reviews, April 18, 2011

    Finally got one

    I wanted to add some back to my routine. I have to to be careful in my workout as I've had severe lower back problems. One bad move and I'm out for a week or more. As far as back, I do standing rows with dumbbells, lat pull downs, and use a hyperextension bench. Most everything else I've tried, and maybe it's my form as well, brings me stress. I tried this machine in the manufacturer's retail store outlet and knew I wanted it, but didn't want to plunk down full price. I found these are hard to find in resale and retain quite a bit of their retail value. But many months later, I finally got one. I'm very pleased. Like all the other Body Solid products I own, it's sturdy and very well made.The very first day after I used it, I knew it was a good buy. I felt soreness from new muscles worked. Excellent!I docked a star due to the pad you rest your chest against. I find it a bit uncomfortable. I set it as far back as I could to get the maximum range of... 4/5 J.

    Best purchase I have ever made.

    The Bowflex Ultimate 2 Is great machine. I have had mine for a little over 3 months now and I use it every day. The facts are if you use it you will get the results you are looking for. My job is very demanding on my time so driving to a gym is out of the question. I bought all the attatchments that can go with it(there are a few) and the rod rejuvenator. The rejuvenator does help. It keeps the rods strait. The dvd is very helpfull in understanding the bowflex and its execises. That said the workout on it does not work for me but it guided me to create my own. You can get the same workout with this bowflex that you can at a gym. Here are the pro's and con's of the bowflex. Pro's: Contruction is extremely good and durable, it's cables and rods so it's more safe to work out by yourself then it is with free weights (this was a big deal for me) I can do squats and bench presses without having to worry about getting a bar back in a cradle. It folds up and can be rolled around which is good... 5/5 Wolf81tx (Belton Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Bowflex Ultimate 2 Home Gym (Sports) The Bowflex Ultimate 2 Is great machine.
