Sears 35-1205 Precision Rower

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

The Sears 35-1205 rower is a middle of the pack priced machine that retails at $249.95. I have never done any serious rowing as in competition, but it seemed like a good way to get a workout. Sears was the first place I went and I didn't even consider any other models at the time.

I have been satisfied with the rowing machine when I have had an opportunity to use it. I have been traveling at work recently and have been irregular with my use of it, but have been on it enough to know that it is durable and well built. The ball bearing rollers for the seat have never given me any trouble while I have lost twenty pounds and firmed up very well.

The resistance in the rowing arms is easy to adjust and I have set it for more as I have progressed in my workouts. The padded foam grips are not only comfortable, but they ensure that you won't get blisters when using the rower with a lot of resistance.

I particularly like the small space that the rower takes up on the floor, which is less than 3' wide and 4' long. It weighs a mere 47 pounds so that moving it from place to place doesn't require two people.

The monitor keeps all the necessary information at your fingertips. It shows calories burned, along with distance, speed, stroke count, and time, so that you are in complete charge of your workout.

A friend of mine has a Kettler rower that I've used on occasion. It costs twice as much as mine, but I couldn't see any real advantage in using it. A professional athlete might find some limitations in this machine but I can't. I have to say I am completely satisfied with this purchase.
