Velocity Fitness Magnetic Rower ReviewThe Velocity Fitness Magnetic Rower is one of the best mid-range magnetic rowers on the market!

It is also known as the Velocity Exercise Magnetic Rower, Cap Barbell CHR-2001, and Proteus PMR-3000 (more on this below)!

The magnetic resistance design uses a Drum Magnetic Control (DMC) system to provide smooth, quiet, adjustable resistance.

A compact design makes it ideal for smaller workout areas. Plus, it can fold up in seconds and be rolled away to save plenty of additional floor space. Read the rest of this entry

First Degree FItness Pacific Challenge AR Rowing MachineThe First Degree Fitness Pacific Challenge AR Fluid Rower looks like a cross between a tank and rowing machine!

The Pacific Challenge AR is part of First Degree’s ‘Horizontal Series’ of rowing machines.

This series is for ‘home rowers’, which are slightly lower cost and more compact.

Although slightly lower cost and more compact, the Pacific AR still provides the same great resistance and smooth rowing stroke as the larger, more expensive models. Read the rest of this entry

WaterRower Club ReviewThe WaterRower Club Rowing Machine in Ash Wood is another fine addition to the WaterRower collection.

Like the other WaterRower models, it provides an ultra-smooth rowing motion that mimics the feeling of rowing on water.

It also provides a top of the line performance monitor and unmatched build quality.

This model is very similar to the WaterRower ‘Natural’, but the ‘Club’ is designed for heavy-duty use in commercial gyms and rehabilitation clinics. Read the rest of this entry

Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5515 Magnetic Rowing MachineThe Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5515 Magnetic Rowing Machine is a mouthful of a name but all I can say is FINALLY!

Finally a magnetic rowing machine at an affordable price!

Kettler Favorit Rowing Machine ReviewThe Kettler Favorit Rowing Machine is not your average, run of the mill, hydraulic-piston rower.

It is a little pricier than its competitors, but the build quality and features far surpass them as well.

The Kettler Favorit is manufactured in Germany and the Germans know a thing or two about making high-quality products (does Mercedes & BMW ring a bell).

If you’re not convinced about the durability, the manufacturer sure is, because they offer a lifetime warranty on the frame! Read the rest of this entry

Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5508 Ultra Tension Magnetic Pro RowerThe Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5508 Ultra Tension Magnetic Pro Rower is considered an upgraded Sunny magnetic model.

But is it actually worth the increase in price?

A lot of time I see “upgrades” that fail to provide anything better at all.

Sometimes the only upgrade seems to be the price tag.  However, this is NOT the case with the SF-RW5508 Ultra Tension Magnetic Pro Rower! Read the rest of this entry
