I was part of the rowing team in college so I've been meaning to get myself a rowing machine now that I'm working. I don't really have that much time to go to rowing meets anymore. So, I figured a rowing machine would be the next best thing.
I bought the LifeCORE-R99 a couple of months ago and I am definitely satisfied with the machine. It adds a great high-tech feel to rowing because of its electronic features and measurements. The display of the rowing machine is pretty decent and it shows information like speed, distance, and calories burned. There are also pre programmed workouts installed into the machines system and I've only been able to try 10 of them even though there are 16. The LifeCORE-R99 is also extremely quiet so it won't be a bother if you're watching TV or blasting some rock or hip-hop on the stereo, which I do a lot.
The build of the machine is sturdy, though it does have a 300 lb weight limit. It has an aluminium frame with solid steel as support making it very durable. Its handles are also ergonomically designed so it is easy to grip and has a nice feel to it. And I love the cooling air vent it has.
The rowing machine costs $899 so it was a really easy choice for me to buy this. Not only is the price affordable, but for the quality build structure and the features it offers I don't know why I didn't get one sooner. It does have only a 2 year warranty for parts which is only ok, and the labour warranty is only 90 days. I guess nothing is perfect so even this one item had to have a bad side.
