Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5634 Magnetic Rowing Machine
Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5634 is an entry level and budget priced rowing machine with magnetic resistance, for a low impact total body workout with varying levels of difficulty without having to leave the comfort of your house. Despite having a low price tag, which you should consider as competitive than cheap, as all Sunny Health and Fitness products seem to offer more value for the money they cost.
The seat is nicely padded and comfortable, and the handle is also padded and anti-slip- both offering enough support. People up to 6’4” tall can use it comfortably as the slide rail is 47.6 inches long and the maximum user weight is specified as 220 pounds, which is quite reasonable for a budget unit and you may want to look at other more expensive options if you weigh more. Sunny SF-RW5634 Rowing Machine measures 45.5 pounds and has the dimensions of 74.5 x 25 x 24 inches, has a foldable style and with the included transport wheels underneath you can wheel it away for relocation and storage. The pivoting foot pedals are quite large as you can see on the Amazon product photos and they include straps for security during your workout.
You will find the black resistance knob right in the middle of two pedals to set the 8 different levels of challenge and intensity very precisely and conveniently with an easy twist. The small LCD digital computer shows the standard indicators of calories, time, count and strokes per minute to help keep you right on pace, by letting you see your progress during your exercise sessions.
There is also the scan mode if you wish to view all the indicators one after the other, about ten seconds each. The pressure on your joints will be minimal as this is designed as a low impact workout equipment that works all the major muscles in your lower and upper body and abdominals as you will be pulling, pushing and pressing, involving your core section too. This is a “Made in China” rowing machine, but you can certainly trust the build quality as it is offered with a three-year warranty by the manufacturer. Southern California-based Sunny Health and Fitness, with operations in US, Europe, Latin America and China, is connected with a great network of manufacturers in China and Taiwan, without involving any middlemen and this is how they are able to offer decent quality products at competitive prices- no compromise on quality.
