    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.

    Best workout for your money

    0 5/5 John R. Sturgis (Modesto, CA United States) - See all my reviews, November 22, 2014

    Amazing.

    I resisted all the black Friday deals on rowers and bought this one based on the positive reviews. I'm glad I did. Amazon shipped it to me in 2 days. Comes in a large box that weighs about 60 lbs. Very well packaged. Puts together with just 8 bolts. All the tools are included. Took 5 minutes.Despite the positive reviews, this item exceeded my expectations. The machine is extraordinarily solid. No wiggles or give what so ever. Just unbelievable for a 55 lb machine. The rowing motion is great. Clutch uptake is without slack. The slide is smooth. There are complaints about the seat being too hard. I though that the seat was hard plastic, but it's very firm rubber. There is cushion, and I didn't have any problems at all. I bought a gel cushion, but don't find that I need it.I was a bit worried about noise since my machine is in a hard room. But there is not much noise. I'm able to hear the TV from across the room.Overall, this is one... 5/5 J. Luu (Colorado Springs, CO) - See all my reviews, December 4, 2014

    Simple, effective and reasonably robust but has a flaw

    I was pleasantly surprised and excited when this rowing machine first arrived. It was well packed and the frame, supports and track were of reasonable gauge steel. I tried it out and after 5 minutes of use I was hearing a click and feeling a notch each time I took a stroke. The click was coming from the area of the piston where a metal pin secures the piston to the handle. I removed the pin and saw that it was damaged. I did not see any damage when I first installed it. There were two grooves and some marks on the pin from where it was rubbing on the frame (metal on metal). The pin is made from soft metal and if it can be grooved after 5 minutes of use I can't imagine that it's going to last very long. Also, the Amazon product description includes "Adjustable foot straps." I did not receive any foot straps. It's possible that Amazon made a mistake and the machine does not come with foot straps because I don't see any in the product picture.It is disappointing to get a new... 3/5 John E. Pugh "Pughimag" (Durham, NC United States) - See all my reviews, February 9, 2013

    The greatest at any price!

    FedEx just delivered my Sunny Health and Fitness Rowing Machine which was shipped in an excellent outer box with absolutely no holes or rips in it! The rower is completely assembled except for the handle bars which bolted on quickly with the enclosed wrench and 2 big bolts. I installed the console which was a simple slide on affair with a simple wire plug in. I never use consoles but I installed it anyway....it came with batteries included! There were no straps to hold the feet on an NONE ARE NEEDED!The seat isn't the best in the world but solid and glides easily and smoothly. I might add a small cushion for longer sessions. The hydraulic piston adjusts easily and goes from real easy to real difficult. So far I am estatic about my rower, but time will tell if I remain so. Am 86 years old and after a few minutes on the 2nd setting, I can feel the muscles in my thighs complaining, which is proof positive that the rower is doing the job it is intended for... 5/5 Melvin H.

    Exactly as expected

    Pros:CheapLight weight (20ish lbs and can be comfortably carried in one hand when grasped in the middle.)Simple sturdy construction (i cannot foresee anything braking without excessive misuse i.e. using it as a weapon)Stupidly simple assembly: (connected the resistance cylinder to the handle bars with the quick release pin; 2 bolts to attach the handle grips (tool included); plugged in the computer and slide it on to the handle bars; and extend and lock the back feet with the over-sized hand screw. DONE! takes maybe 5 to 10 minutes.Folds flat for easy storage under a bed or leaning in the corner of a closetCons:Limited range of motion:If you are looking for a machine with full range of motion then this is probably not for you. Fully extended the handle bars come to about my belly button level. It gets the job done but it doesn't necessarily work my arms much.

This review is from: Sunny Health & Fitness Sunny Health & Fitness Sit-Up Rowing Machine (Sports) I was looking for a simple rower machine and came across this one. I have had it for almost two weeks and love it. It is small and lightweight which I love and I can move it anywhere in the house with ease. The first time I used it I was impressed...I could feel the burn right from the start. I highly recommend this to anyone just wanting to strengthen their upper body and get fit. I need the upper body strength for my job and this little machine will give me that. I love it! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 30, 2015

    0 5/5 b00k_lvr "Roderick" (Denver, CO USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kettler Coach E Indoor Exercise Rower (Sports) I love this rower! Excellent build quality, fairly simple assembly (took me about 45 mins to an hour), pretty clear instructions in multiple languages. The workout computer and included Polar heart rate monitor are superb. The rower can be set to adjust the resistance to keep your heart rate within a specified zone. The rower can also be used as a cable machine that allows you to target specific muscles. The machine is whisper quiet and the rowing action is smooth. It's compact and easily stored upright (fits in our coat closet). In my opinion, this machine is a better value for home users than other rowers such as the Concept rowers because it can replace a cable machine station. I'm very satisfied and highly recommend it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 27, 2014
