Great machine an affordable price

from Aguas Buenas, PR – Verified Buyer

The machine have good construcction, the rowing is smooth with no noises. Is big enough to be use for my 6+ feet son and for me 5'4" but dont take too much space in my room, easy to move around. The counter has a Heart rate monitor, that's a very good feature. The strength adjustment is nice but I would love something easer for change the levels. The assembling instrucction are bad but not impossible to understand. Overall, is a great machine an affordable price.

Not really working

from fort washington, MD – Verified Buyer

This item arrived in the same shape that it shows in the photo. The biggest issue is everything was in German and the other issue is the tension on the handlebars is set way too high, can't use.
