Product Summary

NordicTrack’s RW600 Rowing Machine is a high-quality, tech-enhanced, and budget-friendly rower. What stands out on this rower is its hybrid resistance system which combines 26 levels of Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) and air resistance. The result is a quiet machine with seemingly infinite customization on the resistance. Additionally, the resistance can be controlled manually by your iFIT trainer offering real-time trainer-led resistance control.

The RW600 has many standout features, including:

  • 10-inch Smart HD monitor
  • 26 levels of Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) with dual air resistance
  • Two 2-inch digitally amplified speakers,
  • iFit compatibility with a 30-day free family membership
  • Oversized adjustable foot pedals, 
  • An auxiliary audio port
  • Bluetooth audio connectivity
  • 250-pound max weight capacity. 

The molded, ergonomic saddle offers a smooth ride along the oversized steel seat rail. The RW600 only supports weights up to 250 pounds; a relatively low weight capacity for this category of equipment.

With the iFIT family membership, users can choose from thousands of on-demand workouts that not only include rowing but incorporate other training as well such as yoga, running, and strength training. It is important to note that beyond the 30-day iFIT trial, a membership is required to utilize the rower. There are no pre-programmed workouts offered.  

When you are done with your workout, simply utilize the SpaceSaver design which folds the machine vertically to store out of the way. If you are short on space, this may be a good option.
