Good but not enough resistance

Review by Deena Williams

I bought this rower and put it together with no problem. It came in two boxes, clear instructions and the material seemed sturdy. I had no trouble with the display. It worked properly. I liked the machine at first and only bought it because the rower at my old gym was one of my favorite pieces of equipment to use. I expected to get a full body workout with this like at the gym but it just doesn't offer enough resistance. It's just too easy. Also the recoil isn't executed properly because the pulling mechanism for the machine is a nylon strap. It can give a jerking or stumble feel when you're trying to do double time or isolate the obliques. It seems to be even easier for smaller people. I let my friend and my mom try it on separate instances. They're both 5'3 and both said they didn't even feel a workout, even on the highest setting. I ended up selling the unit.

Good Quality Rower

I'm a runner but needed a quieter workout (my treadmill can't really be used in my new condo). Stupid neighbors.

I'm glad I chose this model instead of going for the one that is just a little over $100. The assembly instructions were cryptic (there is a blown-up bill of materials that inaccurately showed over 100 parts). I found it too daunting (due to cognitive deficits, maybe) and asked my brother-in-law for help. It took him only 15 minutes; homie even said it was EASY.

I watched a few how-to-row-properly videos online and that made a difference. The machine folds up nicely and I can easily wheel it to the corner of the room. It makes little contact with the floor so I don't feel that a mat is necessary. This is my first rower and it's amazing how much I sweat during a 30-minute workout (about 600 strokes). I'm losing weight like crazy.

I highly recommend the LifeSpan Fitness RW1000.

Great Machine

Bought it in a store (2nd Wind Fitness) for $450 if memory serves, 3mo's ago. Great workout, folds up easily, stows away in a corner, sturdy. Couldn't ask for more for the price. Very, very pleased!

Great Exercise Machine!

Shipped quickly from amazon, good price. My 10 yr old son set it up in a few minutes and I love it ! Use it everyday for strength training (arms/legs) and cardio (takes a little work to work up a sweat but easy on the joints). Doesn't take up too much room, easy to read monitor. Low impact - easy on my feet, knees, back. Would recommend highly.

nice

sturdy, good price, could use a little more tension but good enough for the casual user - 40-60 min. a week. time will tell how long the rollers last but you still have to keep the track clean with wd40.

Easy, effective workout

This was officially my first home fitness equipment purchase. I researched many, many rowing machines for a period of 3 weeks. i noticed at my old gym that they used this brand and saw good reviews on it, so i purchased it. The unit seems to be very sturdy. The seat is fairly comfortable and the velcro foot straps securely hold my feet during the workout. Probably one of the biggest things i noticed during my workout is how relatively quiet the machine is. My workouts thus far feel very good. I'm only at resistance lvl 1, but i feel as though i'm getting a very effective workout after every use. A slight drawback is the screen for the machine. It is very inaccurate in counting calories burned, but it does have a timer on it, which is really all i wanted.

Assembly of the machine was not as easy as i would have liked. The instructions lacked in detail and the pictures provided were very lackluster. I will compliment PCE though. I gave them a call when i was having difficulty assembling the machine and they were very polite and courteous to walk me through it. I didn't even have to provide them with a serial number or anything, they just helped me.

If your a novice to rowing such as me and are wanting to find a very effective machine to get a solid workout i would recommend this one. I would of liked to of gotten a concept 2, but i just couldn't justify giving that much money for my first rower. For the price, this machine is the best bang for your buck.

Not durable or reliable!

I bought this rower 2 years ago and it's been broken twice now! It broke after I'd had it less than a year and the warranty covered the repair, although it took 2 months to finally get a service person to show up and fix it. Now less than a year later it's broken again and my warranty is expired! I simply have not gotten anywhere near my money's worth out of this equipment!

Five stars for sure

We had a very good experience with the delivery and assembly and the machine is working well for our needs. It's providing the full-body, low-impact, supplementary workout that we were looking for.

Thanks for an excellent product and excellent customer service.
