Let me just start by saying I hate to exercise. I am too lazy to go to the gym, but when I used to go (ages ago), I hated all the machines except for the rowing machine--I had fond but hazy memories of that. When I decided I really needed to improve my fitness I knew I would never have the discipline to drive to the gym or to a running track several times a week, so I looked into getting a rowing machine. This one is very nice--it has a very smooth action, is sturdy and is attractive to look at. It was also pretty easy to put together, and I'm not too handy. It's great exercise and I don't have to bother with any special gear, shoes or clothes. I just plop down and start rowing. It gets my heart rate up and I can really feel my core, butt and thigh muscles working, plus it's easy on the joints. What's not to love?

This is a beautiful product that does not detract from my media room space. I am working on increasing the number of my workouts and I know it will serve well to help my weight loss and general cross training regimen. I suspect a true athlete or someone looking for an 'extreme' workout would be disappointed. However those who are looking for a low impact workout that will promote good core strength, core and upper body balance, moderate to high cardio improvement will be happy with this product. I am very happy with this purchase.
