      Overall, I really enjoyed using the CITYROW GO Max Rower. Would I generally recommend it over the Hydrow? No, because the Hydrow’s interactive rowing classes are second to none. However, if you’re someone who is interested in doing a variety of workouts through streaming in tandem with a high-quality machine, then I would recommend the CITYROW GO Max Rower to you.
