Product Summary

The Fitness Reality 1000 Magnetic Rowing Machine is smaller than most rowers, and it’s not noisy. So, if you’re working with limited room for your home gym, this could be a great fit. The magnetic resistance with the nylon strap for the handle makes it quiet to work out with, so it won’t disturb others. The low cost of the machine will make it more appealing for beginners or those working with limited budgets.

While it isn’t very expensive, this rower provides value. The resistance can be adjusted by simply turning a dial, while all the relevant information you need to track your session is right on the display screen. The display screen is smaller than on most rowers, but most people should still be able to read it. If you want to personalize your program, you can use the MyCloudFitness app to take your training to a new level.

Beginners that don’t want to feel intimidated by advanced technology or those who want something simple and effective will likely be satisfied with this rower. Intermediate or advanced trainees can use this rower as a temporary machine, but these athletes will likely want a more advanced rower to reach long-term goals.
