Product Summary

Most athletes have a love/hate relationship with rowing as it creates demanding workouts that not only enhance cardiovascular endurance but also develop strength. The XTERRA Fitness ERG600W Water Rowing Machine provides that same efficient workout for users of any fitness level. Featuring a 16-bladed impeller, 5.5 inch LCD console with height and angle adjustments, and seven pre-programmed workouts, the ERG600W will keep you challenged and motivated. 

This rower is as durable as it is comfortable. It uses a high-quality aluminum rail system, industrial-strength handle and adjustable pedals. Supporting weights up to 300 pounds and a height up to 6-foot-1-inch, the XTERRA rower is attractive to a wide variety of users. The oversized flex pedals are equipped with numbered adjustments so multiple users can hop on the rower. There are a few reports that these foot holders are poorly made and crack, but most find them more than adequate.

The pressurized water tank is designed for a long lasting performance. A few consumers reported leaking, however, the vast majority of buyers did not have any issue with leaks or cracks. In fact, most found the water to create a calming and quiet sound as well as a smooth pull.
