Product Summary

If you are on a budget and looking for a rowing machine, the Sunny Health & Fitness Premium Magnetic Interactive Rower could be worth a look. Despite its lower cost, it offers many notable features including 16 levels of magnetic resistance, a folding rail design, cushioned seat, water bottle holder, adjustable transport wheels, and a device holder. Simply place your tablet or phone in the holder and take advantage of the library of row workouts offered by Sunny Health & Fitness.

While 16 levels of resistance falls on the higher end of resistance levels typically seen on rowers, this machine is best suited for beginners. Even the 16th level may not provide enough resistance for seasoned rowers, and the flywheel weighs just 6.4 pounds. This rower also allows you to work your upper body. Simply step on the standing textured foot plates and get to work on some strength exercises. 

A small monitor displays key fitness metrics including calories, count, time, total count, and scan. There are no onboard workouts but the display allows you to monitor your workout and stay in the zone. The maximum user weight is 285 pounds, which is slightly less than seen on competitive models. That said, with a foldable slide rail inseam of 37 inches and the 285-pound weight capacity, this should work for most people.
