Product Summary

The Fitness Reality 4000MR is a magnetic resistance rower that simulates using actual oars while rowing in water. This rowing machine is great for people that are training specifically for rowing, as well as general fitness enthusiasts that want a way to train their entire body while burning calories.

This rower is suitable for beginners because of the comfort features such as the larger seat, non-slip handles with grip balls on the top, and the smooth motion that it provides. It’s also a quiet machine that you can use without disturbing others. The display is easy to read and make adjustments to as you work out. You can track workouts by distance, time, calories burned, RPM, watts, and tension levels.

Intermediate and advanced home gym owners will be pleased with this rower because of the convenience in storing it, the ease of setting it up, and the combination of 15 workout programs with 16 levels of resistance. The handles work independently, which can make this rower more of a challenge to use than traditional rowers, and that could actually be a good thing.
