Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5639 Full Motion Rower
Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5639 is a budget priced rower that allows full motion and a high user weight capacity of 350 pounds and is designed for indoor / home use and not commercial gym settings. There are often 8 levels of resistance in the majority of rowing machines and exercise bikes at this level, but you have a total of 12 resistance levels that are adjustable via the two independent tension knobs located under both arms so you can row at different levels of difficulty. This is a low impact kind of fitness equipment that will not cause a major strain on your joints and is easy to get on and off for those with mobility problems.
It is easy to operate and runs quietly and smoothly so there will be no distraction to your TV or music or people sleeping in other rooms. You may monitor your progress through the small digital LCD display that shows Count (0-9999), Calories (0-9999 Kcal), Time (up to 99:59 mins), Total Count (0-9999) and Scan that shows each of these for 6 seconds one by one. By pressing the Mode button you can select one of the functions and by holding 3 seconds you can reset the calories, count and time. The LCD display will turn on as soon as you start rowing, or when you press a button and if the unit is not used for 4 minutes the display will turn itself off. You will see the precise repetition count and other useful indicators. You have two full motion arms that let you experience a bigger range of motion for your shoulders. The seat is nicely padded, supporting your body nicely and the handlebars are anti-slip, making the unit more comfortable to use. The large foot pedals have an ergonomic design and include foot straps to keep your feet safe and they are adjustable for different sizes of feet.
Sunny SF-RW5639 is shipped unassembled and will not need a lot of assembly work, weighs 33 pounds and measures 51.5 x 24 x 14 inches, doesn’t have a foldable design but will not occupy too much space in your room either. Many other rowing machines at a similar price level cannot have more than 200-220 pounds of weight and may not last for very long if you’re very heavy but this Sunny Rower has an impressive 350 lbs weight capacity and will work for very heavy adults too. You will be burning calories efficiently and from all over your body, not the muscles you seem to be working on and you will be activating quite a few major and minor muscles around your shoulders, back, abdominals and even legs. Tension system offers 12 levels of intensity as we mentioned and this is based on hydraulic cylinders. This Sunny Rower is made in China as the California-based Sunny Health and Fitness has a great network of Chinese and Taiwanese manufacturers and like their other products, it is low in price but offers quality and functionality, and is offered with a three-year warranty by the manufacturer.
