    This rowing machine is perfect for someone with limited space and budget. Unlike other hydraulic rowing machines, it provides a full body workout. If you are considering a rowing machine start here before you spend $$$. The company website also has videos and routines to show its proper use and help get started.

    I received the package today at 2:09 pm. I ripped it out of the box and was momentarily confused. On first glance it looked almost entirely assembled. After ripping open the plastic, I noticed it needed 3 things- handle bar, connecting the arm to the hydraulic and releasing the back bar. It was such a simple operation. There was no crazy fluff with the packaging so clean up was a breeze. I immediately hopped on and was impressed. I went slowly and did 5 minutes in my living room. I then moved it outside, it is SO light. I can carry one handed if I wanted to. It fits nicely in the space I set aside. The monitor is incredibly easy to use and to watch while working out. I noticed some other reviews that said it was complicated. I’m not sure why someone would feel that way, maybe they have updated it since previous reviews? Either way, I was pleasantly surprised and had no issues. Now, onto the machine’s resistance which seems to be a great debate among other reviewers… Once I moved it outside I adjusted the resistance level from 1 to 3 and did a full 15 minutes. I did experience some change in the resistance towards the end but I realized that I had shortened my strokes as I got faster. Once I corrected my form, the resistance was consistent. So to clarify, I did not experience a loss of resistance. However, how it stands up over time is still a debate. I did not go particularly fast but maintained a steady pace from beginning to end. Another point some reviewers brought up was size, I am 5’4 and 220 lbs. Yes, I’m fluffy lol I had no problems. The seat could use a bit more padding but once I moved forward a little I found the sweet spot. The one *potential* problem I’ve noticed is that the foot rests don’t seem to be very sturdy. At one point I had to adjust my feet because I noticed the fronts were slightly bending the plastic back. Maybe they are meant to have some give? I’m not sure. They felt as if they will be the first thing that needs to be replaced down the road.

    Conclusion: Is this a gym quality machine? Nope. Is it functional, practical and worth buying? Yes. This is not something I would recommend to an Olympian but for the average person looking to burn a few calories while watching TV, this is the way to go.

    Update as of 3/22/2020, When I wrote the first review, I weighed 220 lbs. I now weigh 154. I’m 14 lbs from my goal weight. The rower still works like a breeze. I use my treadmill and bike for heavy cardio but the rower is still a staple. It is amazing for cross training. The foot rests still haven’t broken, so that is a plus 😂 Still no loss in resistance. Now that I am in better shape, I notice that if I go fast, I can actually slide it across my floor with the momentum. I put it on .5 inch gym flooring and have had no issue since.

    My boyfriend who is 5’10, 180 lbs and a hardcore volleyball player is in love with this thing. According to him, it isn’t a true rower but works on his muscular imbalances caused by playing one sport.

    I’ve though about upgrading to a more advanced rower but who am I kidding? I’m not a professional and it still does what I purchased it for. No complaints.

    On a side note, I made significant lifestyle changes to accomplish my weight loss. When I first started and couldn’t walk more than 5 minutes at a time, this rower was a true challenge but I outgrew it about a month in and started regularly walking. I no longer use it every day, maybe 3-5 times a month for about 25-30 minutes.

    Summary: This is not anywhere near a gym-quality rower, but for getting started back with workout habits, it’s a solid piece of equipment.


    So my gym closed during the pandemic, which has left me out of shape for many months now. Since I have a bunch of injuries where maintaining good muscle tone is important, that’s a bad thing. But those injuries mean I also can’t just go out and take a jog – I have to be mostly non-impact with what I do, and rebuilding has to be done slowly and carefully.

    Previously, if I wasn’t in the pool, I did mixed cardio days – a little elliptical, a little cycle, a little race walking, and a little rowing. I do like rowing – done correctly, you can hit so many muscle groups, and the motion is nicely meditative. So to find an introductory rower at this price made me pretty happy.

    It’s one of three smaller at-home machines to start myself back with cardio workouts. I have a desk cycle, I have the Sunny Glider/Strider (I’m less impressed with that), and I have this rower. I don’t plan on doing more than 20 minutes – maybe 30 – on each machine, but instead move between machines. So I was never planning on this being my sole, long-term workout machine. But for what I have planned, it seemed perfect.

    Does it approach the really nice rowing machine I used to use at my excellent gym? No, not really. But, it is lightweight, fits into the compact space I have available to me in my condo, and effective in reminding my muscles what it felt like to use a rowing machine. So it suits my needs down to the ground.

    It was very easy to put together – it was mostly assembled in the box, really, and it was well packaged.

    The rowing bar is nice because I’m not stressing out about keeping my shoulders in the correct position – it’s one less thing to think about as I’m getting my form back into place.

    It’s surprisingly quiet, and the rail is actually pretty smooth, as well. Admittedly, I haven’t done more than about 15-20 minutes at a time on this yet – I’m working back up on my endurance and strength – but as someone who is not supposed to do a lot of repetitive movement, that’s fine. So if other people who bought this note it isn’t suitable for longer workouts, that’s actually fine for me. It is just fine for shorter, lighter workouts.

    The space I have to use my little trio of machines is pretty compact, so I needed to have machines that were easy to move. This is actually pretty light, so even with my damaged neck/shoulders, I don’t have problems moving this thing around.

    If you asked me to pick only one Sunny machine at this price point, I would pick this one over the glider/strider, without hesitation. It’s a nicely stable piece of equipment that’s helping me get back into shape, at a very reasonable price point. While the glider/strider will probably only last as long as it takes for me to build a more stable/stronger lower body muscle configuration, I will keep this around for as long as it lasts.

    I think if I want to do longer rowing routines I’d probably look for a better machine – at $99, this is not priced to be a performance machine. But right now, I don’t look at it and think it’s too difficult – it’s the right size and speed to make me comfortable using all my damaged soft tissues again.
