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.
I have trouble running for cardio. This rower does the trick. Add some push ups and crunches and you're done. Easy enough to put together, wife and i had it done in 30 mins. Works well and i have already recommended it to others.
Bought this 1405 Air rower 4 months ago and love this unit. I must note when moving or transporting the unit. I would zip tie the chain to a fixed point on rower. If chain comes off from handle full dis-assembly of the tension system is required, but very fixable. Had some issues with foot platform moving put a simple fix with a 3" stainless steel strap does wonders.Note you can remove both travel stop bumpers for more range of motion great for taller users 6'3+. Using a teflon lubricant on the ... rollers and pulleys makes the unit smooth to operate. For the value and benefit this rower is great.
I have a small gym in my basement and I can honestly say this is by far the best piece of equipment I have owned. It works my entire body and is 'easy' to use. I actually 'enjoy' working out with this rower. As stated in other reviews, it would be nice if you could increase the tension on the pull, but don't think you don't get a good workout without an adjustable tension. When I first started, it kicked my butt within 3 minutes, now I can easily go 10 minutes without stopping. Within around 4 ... weeks, I could tell my legs and arms were getting toned. I can't say enough about this rower except I wish I had purchased it years ago!
The machine works good but doesn't have enough leg tension to get a really good workout.
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 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!
Obsessed with this rower! I've been looking for a rower for a while now and decided on this one. I'm so happy I did! I was needing something to replace running as a good cardio workout, but something that is easier on my joints. This rower is perfect for just that. It challenges my endurance as well as my strength with several different programs to choose from. I keep it in my bedroom for early morning rows while my daughter is still asleep and not only is it quiet enough to not disturb her, ... but it also conveniently folds up to save space when it's not in use. I would highly recommend this specific rower for anyone in the market for one!!
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.
