Rated 4 out of 5 by commute2long Great for moderate workouts
I wanted an easy, no-excuses way to fit exercise into my already tight morning routine, and I needed it to be no-impact because of arthritis in my hip. This machine had good reviews and was offered at a fantastically low price. It was pretty easy to assemble out of the box (if I didn't jump ahead of the instructions, heh). It is virtually silent in operation and has solid, high-quality construction. The free-form setup of the handles allows you to vary your rowing motion. My only negative observation is that the hydraulics only work the "oars" so there is not much workout for the legs, but for the price and quality I can work around that. I have the machine in my tiny living room so I can watch TV while rowing, and it stows easily against the wall when I'm not using it. It's light enough that if company is coming I can take it upstairs to the bedroom. If you are looking for a heavy-duty, whole-body workout there are probably better (but more expensive) options, but for a moderate upper-body aerobic workout it's great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rower excellent rowing workout
I watched a video about proper rowing technique. Got on my rower and love it. I row 20 min. In the a.m. if I'm sitting at my desk all day, I do another 15-20 min. At night, 5 days a week. I feel tighter through my abs and firmer all over. It is a great exercise and I highly recommend this particular model. I look forward to using it which is key to a consistent workout program !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeri Wonderful product for the money.
I love this rowing machine so much more than my previous one. The way it is constructed, it gives a much better work out and was very easy to assemble. The required tools come with. I highly recommend this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drillerswife Great piece of machinery
This rower is exactly what I was looking for. It gives me the workout I want but it didn't break the bank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv2Workit This product has great features! I can adjust the settings to meet my needs.
I purchased my Stamina Glider in January. I love it. It is easy to use. Just adjust to your ability! I use it everyday and for my age that is saying alot!! I was out of shape and wanted a tool I could use at my own pace to get an overall work out!! Fun to use... Like rowing a boat!
