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
