    This machine may save my life

    I'm a former marathon runner who now has severe arthritic pain in both knees. Even walking long distances hurts. I transitioned to an elliptical machine, which was better, but still leaves me with some pain as there is still some weight bearing. I'd stopped exercising for the last few years, and have watched my weight balloon and my health start to decline. I'm so out of shape that housework and even climbing a flight of stair leaves me out of breath. I'm about 5'10" and a depressing 280 pounds of flab. So I'm basically starting from zero. I've talked to my doctor and orthopedist - both of which suggested swimming as an aerobic activity which won't stress my knees. No pool close to me so not an option. I found this machine by accident and was convinced by all the stellar reviews to try this. So here are my first impressions.Amazon had this delivered in two days via UPS.

All of my parts were there and the assembly was very easy. Just follow directions. It took me about 45 min to put together after unpacking. I am very glad I did not spend any more money on a rower than this. I am an ex long distance runner and I use an elliptical daily. I have bikes and weights but just needed to shake up my workout. I am a lightweight woman, not much upper body strength. There is a lot of resistance to this for someone my size and it is adjustable as you build up. This is would not be a rower for a high performance rower, but for someone like myself in my home gym it is perfect!! I doubt this would work for a very heavy person. It only weighs about 29 lbs. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 14, 2014

    like all rowers

    Amazon isn't kidding when they say you save $89. This rower does indeed sell for more online. This is exactly what I wanted. A simple rower to get me moving. If you have "bad knees" you will want to determine how to support yourself when getting on and off the machine since it is, like all rowers, very close to the ground. This is a problem for me, I knew it would be, but I knew from experience (many years ago) that I would get a full body workout with a rower. Hopefully getting on and off will become easier with time. The rower does involve assembly. I am by no means mechanically inclined (ten thumbs) but I decided to make an attempt. I found the directions to be very good and I managed to put the rower together without any problems. I am normally so inept that my 'building' this rower makes me darn proud of myself. Translated-any one should be able to assemble this rower. I hope it stands up to wear but at this price, if it lasts a year of, hopefully, regular... 5/5 Madge (California) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This was originally a 5 star review but poor customer service made me change it.

    I'm leaving the original (5 star) review at the bottom.The rower has a glitch. The seat does not always track true, and when it doesn't, it will stop in mid-stroke so that the pressure of the legs drives you off the seat. I contacted Customer Support about it and we had a couple of back and forth emails (they asked for the serial number and date of purchase). After that, all communication from customer service stopped (except for the automated Thank You for contacting us). I have tried to get some resolution of the problem but it's like there's nobody there. Based on this I'm recommending a NO BUY on this rower.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------This review is for ease of assembly, quality of parts, packaging and instructions.

    0 5/5 K. Rogers (Indianapolis, IN) - See all my reviews, April 11, 2008

    Good Rower and Great Company

    I am writing my review about 6 months after purchasing this rower. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase, but felt compelled to write my belated review only after experiencing an issue with the equipment and getting great customer service. First of all, I must say that this is one sturdy piece of equipment that is very easy to assemble and set up. I am a novice rower, but quickly learned how to use the equipment and found the workouts to be extremely satisfying. I was amazed at how complete the workout felt after only 15-20 minutes. My only vice is that the display seems a little cheap, but I really only use the timer and HR monitor and they both work just fine.I was gradually working my way up to longer work outs, when I experienced a break in the bungee cord that provides tension on the pulley that collects the row belt. The cord became pinched and ultimately snapped. The company provides a 2 year warranty, so I sent an email on a Sunday afternoon and got an... 5/5 Alan D. Mckirby - See all my reviews, February 2, 2009

    You get what you pay for...

    I purchased this rower just over 2 years ago. That's an important number to keep in mind, because it's when the warranty expires on things like the bungee cord that keeps tension on the pull mechanism. So you can imagine my delight when, during a workout, that bungee cord snapped. I was using it about 5-6 hours a week most weeks-- nothing extraordinary or unusual. Finding the website for the ProRower was challenging, and once I found it there wasn't any information of use for repair. The only solution was to send in the entire rower for service. Oh, and in order to do so I would also need the original packaging, which was an 8ft by 3ft by 3ft cardboard box that I had to throw out shortly after purchase. Also, shipping, both to and from their location, was my responsibility. After reading all of that, I was less disappointed by the fact that I was out of warranty. Even under warranty, it would have been cost-, time-, and effort-prohibitive to send it in.Other issues I... 1/5 sketchy9 - See all my reviews This review is from: H2O Fitness RX-950 ProRower Club Series Rowing Machine (Sports) I purchased this rower just over 2 years ago.

    Amazing Piece of Art, er, Exercise Equipment

    Anyone considering this rower should know first and foremost that it is absolutely gorgeous. Beyond that, what really sold me over the Concept 2 is that the layout of the machine is more conducive to rowing while watching tv, for example, nearly silent (great for apartment living), and what you noise you do hear is the gentle whoosh of water swirling.I've never rowed in a scull, but I have to imagine the WaterRower sounds much more realistic than the sawing sound of the Concept 2.Storage is a breeze with the low center of gravity and roller wheels - just lift it up and it takes up about the space of a dining chair.The only potential downside is the computer. The Concept 2 has very accurate drag calculations, etc., that allow you to compare against anybody else's scores in the world.
