Nice, smooth rowing machine
M.P. from MI – Verified Buyer
Delivered super fast, had problems with first machine, Wayfair reacted professional and fast, replaced first unit. More than happy with this rowing machine, have been looking and looking for right one finally decided to go with Newport. Solid workout, nice addition to my recumbent stationary bike. I am stocky, 250 pounder, started with 45 minutes nice and slow, already up to 60 min (resistance at high) @29 strokes per min. after week or so. Some other reviewers did note there is not enough resistance but if you do your rowing technique correct, you will have more than enough of work out. Every muscle will hurt. Legs, thighs, lower back, shoulders, front abs, arms. Machine is quiet, I do watch TV as I exercise, no problem there. More than happy with purchase. All is left is to pull that cord hard. Pros: Slick, high quality, easy assembly, good work out and it is RED in color not black or dark gray like most exercise equipment out here. Cons: None so far, first unit was defective but Wayfair took care of that
Love! Buy this from Wayfair!
Kayla from Irving, TX – Verified Buyer
I am so happy with this purchase from Wayfair! I purchased this for $649. It came with FREE 2 day shipping and I was thrilled! It arrived in two separate boxes and was mostly assembled. There were instructions (ikea style) included but the hard parts were already done for you. I put it together alone in about an hour and that was start to finish. Easy! It looks great, gives a great workout, makes this soothing sound and let's your mind wonder to the water. I haven't figured out how to sync my heart rate monitor to the machine, but it is possible. I love this purchase! Exactly 2 weeks later I saw that this was now selling for $599. I contacted Wayfair via email and within hours I had a response refunding my card for the difference. Unbeatable customer service. Always look to wayfair!

I at first was worried about being 6'4" and just being able to fit. On top of that knowing my wife would have to readjust for her midget feet. We have not had a problem and love it! It came in without a scratch and assembly took less than half an hour. As far as functionality, it is a very smooth row without any catching or jerking. I do have one con, but it won't affect my rating because Wayfair settled the issue(even though it took 5 days to settle). It was listed for a certain price on Wayfair, and a little bit higher elsewhere like Costco. I received a shipping confirmation with no tracking number. After a few days without a number or coming home to magically seeing it at my door, I had to call them instead of them calling me. It wasn't backordered BUT the price had gone up $647!!! It took them two days to decide to honor my purchase, which they did. Great buy!!!
Great Machine!! Definately Recommend.
Garrett from Knoxville, TN – Verified Buyer
I searched for about a month both online and on Craigslist to find a Rower with such high ratings and an excellent price. The price on this one was right and the reviews were very complimentary. Some didnt like the color (not a reason to give a lower rating, it is obviously RED). There were a few mentions of resistance could be higher and I agree. I wish there was more resistance. However, after just a few minutes of rowing the resistance seems to be just right for me. This machine is well built and shorter in length than other rowers which I like. I am only 6ft Tall but someone a few inches taller could easily use this machine. Pros: Great Value, Well Built, Cons: Not quite enough resistance if you are an experienced rower.
seem like a good one
samuel from cheyenne, OK – Verified Buyer
I got this because my gf is wanting to exercise but has arthritis in her hips so the impact was running isn't good. It is a solid design. I have never used one before but going off of the other reviews I would have to agree the resistance is enough to get a workout but probably isn't as high as some other water rowers. I still get a good sweat using. It takes some time to get the roper form down but so far have had no issues other than it was short a wheel in the packaging but we don't really move it so it's not much of a concern to me. I'm sure I could get one shipped to me if I really wanted to mess with it.
Best water rower for the price!
Natalie from Florida – Verified Buyer
This rower is wonderful! Not only is it a water rower, but the lowest priced one so far. The quality exceeds the price! For those who complain that there is not of lot of resistance, remember that rowing is for endurance and this machine definitely works out the body. It came on time, was easy to put together and is easy to move if we need to. Easy to move in front of the TV for a workout during a show or roll away when guests come over. We are beyond happy with this and are glad we chose this one over the $1000 rowers. Pros: Value, easy to put together, easy to move, great workout, fast shipping Cons: None
First water based rower
Johnathan from Palestine, TX – Verified Buyer
I had read all the benefits of rowing prior to purchasesing this Machine and was ready. The assembly took little to no time due to it being 80% assembled in the box, just bolt on the long rail and fill with water (it came with a siphon pump). The workout is brutal, it fools you when you first go through the motion and you feel as though it is easy, and then soon after you realize how much time you have left. I've past through the initial soreness and look forward to many more long rows with my machine.
Excellent Rowing Machine
Katherine from Waukesha, WI – Verified Buyer
I've used commercial rowing machines at health clubs over the years and decided that I wanted one for home. I wanted the same commercial -type quality but needed a machine that was smaller. After doing a lot of research on line, I decided on this Newport and I am not disappointed. Easy to put together, fill and works really well. You do need a workout space so the machine can stay out all of the time (not collapsible). I highly recommend this product. Pros: Compact but extremely durable; provides a good workout Cons: It is not collapsible so you need a workout space for it
More than we ever could have expected and Wayfair has great customer service
Brian from Las Vegas, NV – Verified Buyer
Wow, my family has loved this machine. We got it for a very competitive price through Wayfair and with free 2 day shipping. The item shipped speedily and was easy to put together. We had a small glitch with the monitor not automatically turning off, but Wayfair was quick to fix the issue. This rower makes for a quick and easy workout. The sound of the water resistance almost makes you feel like you are actually in the water rowing. Our entire family has gotten into using it (even our 5 year old). Looking forward to using it for years to come.
Outstanding Rower...highly recommend!!!
Brian from Winchester, CA – Verified Buyer
Excellent bargain price for a very effective piece of equipment. Had originally looked at the Concept2, Crossfit industry standard, but for this price, it was a no-brainer. Some have commented that they were not challenged with the workout, but my guess is that it is incorrect technique. I am an avid, in shape gym rat, and with good form, it will smoke you in a good way... Pros: Great value, easy assembly
