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 Fixer Great Value
Have used the rower for 2 weeks and have enjoyed the ease of use and portability.
Not impressed with the foot mounts,find uncomfortable, I find placing feet on bottom of foot mounts much easier and comfortable

Rated 5 out of 5 by pepebjcb Made me go back to exercising
I bought close to two months ago. I have used it almost every day since then. It is nice to be able to have this machine at home. Very easy to put together and very easy to use. I was not exercising at all. Now I do it almost every day. I feel and look better.

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 Bobdog93 Excellent rowing machine
I bought this about 3 weeks ago. I had a rower that was a pull back. This one is more realistic and more difficult. It is not to difficult to where you cannot do it. It does take a bit of adjustment, but once used to the machine, I would not go back. Stamina also has excellent Customer service. Great company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mjlein60 This BodyTrack Glider 35-1050D
I recently had a wake up call and by that, I mean a heart attack! I decided that my life style had to change, so I started out exercising on a recumbent bike exerciser, but although I was working my lower body and loosing weight, my upper body felt no change. I started to research different exercising machines and came across the BodyTrack Glider 35-1050D, which I purchased, based on the reviews that were posted about it on Amazon. When I received it, I was surprised that it was almost fully assembled and what was left to attach, was quite easy. I am 6' 2" and weighed 252 lbs at time of purchase. I do a 30 minute session daily, fast pace rowing for 5 min increments, with 1 min breaks in between. With just 1 month into my routine, I have lost 4 pounds and I'm starting to get muscle tone back into my upper body. I'm in no hurry to reach my goal, as my doctor always reminds me, slow, but steady. I'd also like to add, that I'm 65 years old, which shows that you're never to old to start exercising. I don't like to exercise, but with this rower, in front of my TV and doing my 30 min. routine, I fine it very invigorating and not boring. The only thing I wish, is that there would have been some workout programs include with the instructions for the BodyTrack Glider 35-1050D, as I couldn't find anything online, so I made up my own. For the price, you can't go wrong and as well built as this machine is, I feel it will be with me, as long as I'm able bodied.

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.
