Not expensive and a brand that has history in the fitness industry providing some top quality products that consumers have loved. This particular model has some great training features that will give the full body cardio workout you have been looking for. If you are smart with how you train, the RW1000 rower could be the best investment you have made.

Features of the rower

This rower would best be described as a medium tier rower that users of all fitness levels, (beginner, intermediate and advanced) can get some great results with. In a home gym environment users have the added convenience of exercising as and when they see fit and not having to travel 30 minutes or more each day to the gym. Gym memberships may be cheaper short term but for the long run buying your own home cardio equipment is the way forward.

  • A sixteen and a half pound flywheels that allows, as mentioned above, the rower to operate smoothly and efficiently and reasonably quiet. Great for home gym environments when there is other people in the house.
  • Improves the strength of your core, leg, back, arm and shoulder muscles. A very effective full body workout.
  • Using this rowing machine Intensively with a solid training plan can be extremely effective in burning off excess fat.
  • It folds to improve space efficiency. Again a great design feature which is great for home gyms as they often double up as another kind of room such as an office when they are not in use.
  • A sturdy stable base and frame which can handle user weights of up to 300 pounds. A surprisingly durable design for a mid tier rowing machine and one which will come as a welcome addition to anyone who has purchased cardio equipment in the past only for it to fail them a few weeks later.
  • Computer console displays everything you will ever need to know about your workout including amount of strokes, distance, time speed and calories burned. Use these stats wisely and you could improve your results even further.

What are consumers saying about it?

It is very hard to please everyone, so lets take a look deeper to find what actual users are saying about it’s specs and features below.

Amazon – Positive feedback covers the training aspects such as the effectiveness and ‘burn’ it provides. Another good point talked about covers the compact design and good value for money. One complaint we found talked about the problems that may occur if you are someone with smaller than average feet. There could be an issue with them slipping off the peddles which we can see as being very frustrating for users.


The RW1000 rowing machine brings a stable intermediate solution to the table with some top class workout features. A stable and durable design plus the ability to record your speed, distance and other key workout stats will only ever enhance your workout experience. Whats more, a lot of equipment on the market tend to take up too much space. That is not the case with this rower thanks to its convenience and space saving, foldable design.
