Christopeit Sport Cambridge II Rower – //, This is a great rowing machine

Design puts pressure on knees. This rowing machine is well made, solid and very easy to put together. Unfortunately i have had to return it because of the design. I have a knee injury and currently the only cardio i can do without pain is the rowing machine (concept 2) so this purchase was so i could use a rowing machine at home when i can’t get to the gym. With the design of this rowing machine the bar that the seat slides on is inclined and the foot rests are almost touching the floor. This means that instead of pushing/sliding back straight you are pushing your weight back and upwards. This gives a completely different feel and workout to a standard gym rowing machine and puts pressure on your knees. The handle is connected by an elastic rope which again give a completely different feel to air rowers and constantly pulls putting strain on the shoulders. It is a great shame that this design does not suit my knee injury because otherwise i would have given it 4-5 stars and it is well made and very solid.

Bought this for my husband,easy to use ,right weight category for him,ok for the price ,does what it says on the leaflet.

Christopeit Sport Cambridge II Rower – Silver/Red/Black, Medium

  • Efficient upper body, shoulder, back, arm and leg musculature training
  • Ideal for body exercises
  • Latex cable system
  • Large display shows: Time, strokes, calories burned and scan
  • Suitable for a body weight of max. 120 kg

Easy to set up and use, works well as a general rowing machine, setting the tension is a little difficult but once you get the hang of it it’s ok.

Christopeit sport cambridge 11 rower. I can row myself around my bedroom in ease.

This is a really good machine for the money. This is a really good machine for the money. It was not that difficult to assemble but the wire connecting the strokes/minute, time etc. I could not face sending it back having got it virtually assembled so with some difficulty i managed to join the two ends. The ‘pull’ is not really strong but you can get more out of it by upping your rate and length of time on the machine. I think it might be a little difficult to store even folded up as it is quite heavy but i use it every day and would recommend it to anyone wanting to up their fitness. Probably not strong enough for someone who is already very fit and strong. The screen is good as you can see how you are doing.

Christopeit Sport Cambridge II Rower – Silver/Red/Black, Medium : A bit noisy but it’s great if you’re a beginner to rowing or fitness in general.

  1. We are happy with this product and find it to be good value for money. It is well made and very sturdy. However, we would have prefered better instructions for putting it together , the diagram and writing are very small and you need to study it well to be sure of all the parts , in saying that my sister and i did manage to build it after a few chops and changes and were pleased that we managed to do it on our own, so ladies don’t be put off with having to build it. So far we have only used it a few times , so we can’t comment on how efficient it really is , but we would recommend it as value for money.

    This is a nice little exercise machine but i put it together back to front and ended going flying off the side:-/ not the sellers fault though, my fault for being clueless, i ended up giving it to a family member who loves it so i would 100% recommend.

    Folds up so it doesn’t take up to much space in storage, easy to fold down again,.
    1. Good for keeping up with fitness. I love rowing, but can’t ever be bothered to go to the gym just to use the rowing machine, so i thought i’d try getting a cheapish one for my room. It’s not too hard to sort out the rest of it – took me about half an hour – and all the tools are included in the kit, which is fantastic. It’s not very big, which is good because i don’t have a lot of space, but since the metal bar folds up near where it meets the main body of the machine, it takes up quite little space if you don’t mind that it’s a bit of an odd shape. It has four adjustable ‘tensions’ for the cord, and i don’t find a noticeable difference between them. I can notice the difference between setting 1 and 4, for example, but not between 1 and 2. The highest setting is not that tough, but perfectly fine if you’re looking to do a light-medium workout in your bedroom. My computer part doesn’t work – it was non-functional when it arrived and hasn’t turned on even once so there’s a star deducted for that. Thankfully, i didn’t intend to use it much anyway, but i’m sure that a lot of other people would like to track distance and so on.
