The rower does offer very good resistance and workout. Feels quite balanced and sturdy. The downside is the seat is a bit small, the handlebar is short and it is noisier than others I've worked out on - albeit those cost 2-3 times more. My recommendations is based on money - if on a budget then I recommend this product, if you can afford to spend a lot more then go for the more expensive rower.
All good... easy to put together (15 minutes) and strong. Works as advertised. Only 1 complaint... can't see the display while on the rower. It needs to be back lit and it "flips" back and forth to quickly. Can not be set to one setting. Other than that it's good to go. PS This machine has a max weight rating of 250# - I weigh 265# - But no problem.... Don't tell anybody!
The construction is very good and feels very stable and solid after several rowing sessions. The rowing action, resistance, grips, and footholds are all comfortable. It is an "Air" resistance rower so there is the noise of the fan but otherwise a quiet machine with no squeaking or creaking from parts rubbing. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the display could be better. It is a little dark which makes it difficult to see in a room that is not brightly lit. Overall a very rower and a good value.
It took a while to put this together using my own tools. Once assembled the seat went back and forth very smoothly and the chain to the flywheel felt very strong. The only issue I had was that the strokes per minute and speed did not register on the console pad. A call to the company revealed it had to do with the magnet under the seat going over a sensor. Couldn't figure out how to correct this , so am just doing without. I've been rowing for a 30 minute session 4times a week and feel that I am ... getting a pretty good workout. Very happy with the purchase
My husband and I bought this rower about a month ago. We have not been happy with our gym and started acquiring gym equipment for our basement. We had neither used a rowing machine before purchasing this. We wanted a non treadmill piece of cardio equipment. Works up a great sweat, and works all parts of your body. We had to do some modifications to the foot pedals because I have such smal feet. The straps wouldn't hold my feet in place. My husband also didn't like where the strap went across his ... foot. My husband only spent about 30 minutes putting it together. Great overall purchase!
I bought this machine as a low impact workout because i have back and knee issues. I also bought a stamina 399. I have to say for a lower end rowing machine i would definitely recommend the xterra erg400. Although there is a bit of a price difference i feel the xterra is worth the difference. It is much quieter than the stamina and has a little better computer. I feel it is a little better build. However i really do like the foot pads and straps better on the stamina. They hold your feet in place better
I have arthritis, especially in my hips. I bought the Avari Easy Glide Rower to help keep my strength up and I'm pleased with this machine. My only problem is that after 15 minutes, my tailbone starts to hurt. I used to have this problem with bike seats on long rides and it causes backaches, which is what I'm dealing with now because of the rower. I'm looking for a gel seat cover to fit the wide seat of this rower. It would be helpful if Avari would sell one as an accessory (or build it into the machine).
I bought this product because it had good reviews and was one of the cheaper rowing machines I could find. But, the resistance settings don't work, as the resistance on my machine feels the same set to 1 as it does set to 12.
I bought this a month ago, and absolutely love it! It is very high quality, well made.The seat is large and ultra padded, and formed to fit! It rolls so smoothly on the trac, and the padded grips on the handles are very comfortable.It is a shock-system for the tension, which is very quiet and the tension stays consistent, and easy to dial up or down.The meter tells calories, time, distance, number of strokes...easy to program and read.When assembling the Rower, be very sure to set the bolts out, ... categorize, since they look similar.I am a very happy customer.I am 6 ft tall and 220 lbs, and fit fine.
What an absolutely excellent product. I assembled it, "very leisurely" in about 2 hours. Not one glitch or surprise while assembling. Top quality components and fasteners. Just started rowing so I can't attest to the durability but, I'm pretty sure by the look and feel of the machine that, this rower not only will work well to burn fat and rebuild muscle tone, but also will probably "outlive" me. I'm 55, so we'll see!
This rower is perfect for anyone of any size. My boyfriend is 6 foot 3" and he has full motion on the rower. The only problem we encountered while assembling it is the pin that keeps the rower in place did not fit through the hole. The hole was too narrow for the pin to fit through. We had to do some maneuvering in order for it to work properly. Other than that, this is a great rower and it is very quiet as well.
As a parapelligic this rower is wonderful for my recovery needs and very affordable!! With the strengthening help of this rower, I'll be walking in no time!!
I bought this about 4 weeks ago and just got it set up 1 week ago. Easy to put together and works very well, exactly as I had hoped. The only thing I have found that I wish was better quality is the siphon, but the machine itself is outstanding, especially for the price. Very satisfied.
There is some confusion if you can adjust the tension. You can absolutely adjust the tension. If you look at the arms there Are notches indicating this option. Pull the arm straight up-and-down loosen the knob on the side and it will slide down to loosen the tension and then tighten knob back. Another option you can do is add some height to the back and get an even harder workout at an incline. We love this machine we both weigh between 200 and 240 lbs. my only complaint as a woman is the seat ... is really stiff so I sit on a little pillow while I row. And we are able to store this rower upright in the corner it's hardly even noticeable.
I'm happy with the machine. I haven't done rowing for years but this has made me get off couch. I can row while I watch TV and I don't even think about my workout.
My weight was at 250, so I decided to go for the sturdy model of rowing machines. It was easy to put together and had all the parts needed. It works much better than I imagined. The monitor is top notch as well as the durability of the workout machine.
I bought this a month ago and have been using it every other day between weight training workouts. It is a nice and smooth machine and is very easy to program and use. I wish the foot rest angle was adjustable.
After being in the market for a rower for 6 months and being torn between getting the After 6 months of being the market in the market for a rower and being torn between the Concept 2 model D or Lifecore's R100 rower, I decided to take a chance on the Stamina DT Pro. My hope was that this product could offer the R100's cutting edge air/magnetic row resistance technology but at the lower cost of the the Concept 2 (C2). Additionally, I liked that Stamina was also throwing in the chest strap heart ... rate monitor with this package at no added cost. This rower took a little over an hour for me to put together. I did it by myself but knowing what I do now, I would definitely recommend you have a second person on hand to help assemble this. Doing it solo, at one point I had no choice but to stand the rower somewhat on it's head (the plastic fan casing). The case now shows stress mark from this, but doesn't effect it's performance. First off, I will tell you there are 12 programs you can use, NOT 12 resistance levels as I had originally thought. There are 8 resistance levels. I am happy with these levels though. L1 is comparable to L1 on the Concept 2, but at L8 the resistance is much higher than L10 of the C2. Level 3 or 4 seems comparable to L5 on the C2. Just as with the R100, with the DT Pro, your times will be slower than what you recorded on the C2 (unless of course you're on something you weren't before). The reason for this I believe as that the C2 gives credit for "coast". With the Air/magnetic types it's as if your paddling into a current, so basically if your oars aren't doing work in the water you aren't making forward progress. It saddened me at first a little that I most likely won't be smashing any of my PR's set with the C2, but I'm already over it. This is more honest work. Distances are measured with the DT Pro in miles. I'm used to meters, but after 3 workouts I've made the mental transition. *note; I can see in the display screen that there is a "Km" above the "miles" but there is no way I can find to switch it to Km's. Does Stamina sell the Km version to those outside the U.S.? The stroke of the DT Pro is wicked smooth. This was what I signed up for! It is also much quieter than the the C2. The saddle slide is also very smooth. However, the edges of the seat are highly contoured. I am 6'0 200 lbs and my fanny fits within the contoured sides just fine. I could see fitting in this seat being a problem though, particularly if your pushing the 300 lb weight capacity of this rower. The other important thing I noticed about the seat/slide is that while, yes, it is smooth, if your weight is properly distributed over the beam, if you lean your weight out to the left or right, however, there is very noticeable "sway" of the seat that could throw you off balance. I don't know if this was intentional in the design to make it a more realistic rowing experience. I'm also not sure how much stress from the sway the seat can take before it will breaks. The foot-straps are my biggest hang up with the DT Pro. They are 2 Velcro strips that don't appear to be reinforced in any way. With the amount of force my feet snap back into these straps especially when doing short/vigorous sprints, I honestly can't see these things being long for this world. This rower is easy enough to move around on it rollers. Storing it away in it's upright position is slightly awkward though. This is because there is a knob that needs to be fully unscrewed an removed to allow the beam to pivot into vertical position and then screwed back in get in the horizontal/ready for use position. Not sure why they couldn't have used some kind of quick release pin. Ohhh, one other really important note: Don't forget to unplug from the power source before moving the rower. I've already make this mistake twice. Luckily I didn't damage anything. Yes, you have to plug the rower in to use the monitor and activate the resistance settings. Overall, I would say I got what I wanted and for a good price. Time will tell though. I plan to be pretty rough on this rower. I will update this review in few months to note how its holding up.
