Kettler Stroker Rowing Machine : A high-quality rowing machine

Actually speedy delivery and a wonderful item.

If you happen to be big and tall – get it. This is a pretty significant class item, ideal for tall and weighty buyers (i am 6’4′ and weigh nearly eighteen stone and it is ideal).

The make established up is uncomplicated, the machine is silent but i are unable to function. The create established up is effortless, the machine is quiet but i can’t work out how to established the machine for unique styles of perform out – this has been the disappointing portion.Here are the specifications for the Kettler Stroker Rowing Machine:

  • Flywheel: 4kg (8.8lbs); Resistance: 8 Stages of Manual Magnetic Resistance;
  • Single Handle Rowing Style; Console: LCD Monitor Display + Sweat Resistant Key Pad;
  • Heart Rate Measurement: Via Ear Clip (Not Included); Feedback on Accumulated Distance Covered;

  • Max User Weight: 130kg (286.6lbs); Warranty: 3 Years Parts And Labour Warranty

. Very good good quality machine, distinct & simple to follow recommendations about the design.

Not fairly notion 2 regular but shut. . I narrowed my look for down to both this or the principle two rower. Cost was a component and that actually was the only rationale i selected this in excess of the strategy 2. That getting explained this had good assessments from both amazon prospective buyers and independant reviewers. Prosit is effectively designed and effortless enough to setup. The motion is sleek and it folds absent nicely. Battery operated so can go any where and no wires. Battery appears to be to previous really effectively. Consit does not have any facility to keep track of or established distance. I truly feel this is a appreciable oversight and a horrible annoyance.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Quality bit of kit
  • Definitely recommended
  • Not quite concept 2 standard but close.

Fantastic machine for beginers. . Suits great in the residence and can fold absent into a corner when not in use. I do three unique excersises in reps of thirty. Then do thirty sit ups off the machine, then repeat. Right after three or 4 circuits i then do a row for close to 3km. Losing body weight and getting additional muscular. The machine itself appears to be very nicely crafted. It took fifty percent an hour or so to set it together but was quick ample. Shows you the facts and cycles by means of the different stats but doesnt aid a terrific offer aside feom keepong count of your strokes. The display screen could be greater. A slightly superior laptop chip inside of would help plans and superior monitoring of your progress with much more applicable stats,like some managing machines do. Youtube has some fantastic movies to show you all the different excersises you can do. Overall tbough it was revenue nicely used, especially if i live lengthier as a outcome.

  1. Great machine for beginers. . Fits nice in the house and can fold away into a corner when not in use. I do 3 different excersises in reps of 30. Then do 30 sit ups off the machine, then repeat. After 3 or 4 circuits i then do a row for around 3km. Losing weight and getting more muscular. The machine itself appears to be very well built. It took half an hour or so to put it together but was easy enough. Shows you the info and cycles through the various stats but doesnt help a great deal apart feom keepong count of your strokes. The display could be better. A slightly better computer chip inside would enable programs and better tracking of your progress with more relevant stats,like some running machines do. Youtube has some good videos to show you all the different excersises you can do. Overall tbough it was money well spent, especially if i live longer as a result.

    1. A high-quality rowing machine. I bought this having had very little experience of rowing machines, but did research the purchase quite thoroughly. Having gone through others’ reviews on amazon and elsewhere, the weight of evidence seemed to be on the side of this model which i purchased for £300 using a discount code on ebay (the price otherwise doesn’t seem to move much from £370) a few months’ ago. Assembly was a fairly lengthy process (possibly 60-90 minutes for one person), but the instructions are clear and the labelling is of the parts is excellent (the bits are packaged so that you can just take the parts you need for one stage at a time). The machine is fairly heavy once assembled, but can be moved quite easily with the wheels/castors on the underside of the main unit. I leave the machine permanently assembled, but if you have problems with space you might want to consider a model which folds more easily and neatly. The instructions for using the machine are a little lacking (particularly with regard to operating the computer unit, which takes a bit of work to get your head around), but in truth you don’t really need to use it. The resistance is set manually and i tend to just use the resistance number and the timer to gauge how hard a workout i want. The magnetic resistance is strong and certainly matches my limited experience of fully-fledged gym equipment. The resistance goes up to 8 and i find 5-6 a decent workout over 30 minutes, so i’m happy with the scope for harder workouts if needed.

    Had the rower now for 3 months and still going strong. So glad i made the purchase as it ticks the box for my daily exercise routine. The machine is great quality and so smooth to use. I am benefiting from the fitness the machine brings and just know it will continue to deliver all i had hoped.

    . Good quality machine, clear & easy to follow instructions regarding the construction.
    1. Bought this because of previous reviews, i can honestly say it is a well built machine that will last a long time. It feels different to the air rowers i am used to but 30 minute session certainly works. It was relatively easy to assemble though some may find it tricky, it folds up easily to store in the corner of the room. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a home machine.

    Excellent piece of equipment, look on utube for other exercises you can do.
      1. Fairly easy to assemble and comfortable to use. Fairly easy to assemble and comfortable to use. I’m only a moderate user so haven’t given it a heavy work out but i’m very happy.

    I bought this rower from argos in april 2015. I’ve used it every day since it arrived and i’m very impressed with it. I bought it to replace my gym membership. I was always feeling guilty for not going to the gym enough, and now i can nip upstairs and exercise whenever i wanti used to use the concept 2 in the gym. I’d have it on the highest setting, and do 15-30 min per session. My biggest worry when looking at machines for home-use was the resistance levels and the noise. I’m happy to report that this rower is very quiet, that i’m only using resistance level 2 out of 8, and that i’m only managing 15 mins or so per day, since i’m pretty knackered afterwards. The level is adjusted manually, which is good since i’m wary of machines on which you have to use the computer to make adjustments. The handle and the seat are very comfy, and the foot straps are great too. My feet don’t work themselves loose like they used to on the concept 2. I got a heart rate monitor strap with my rower. I had to fiddle about with it at first, as it wasn’t picking anything up. (the trick seems to be to put the ‘buckle’ very close to your heart and to wet the sensors.

    Having had a bad experience with another supposed “leading supplier” of sports equipment, which took over two months to resolve (going to the line on paypal), i was amazed at the speedy delivery of this machine – and the fact that it worked perfectly, once assembled. Assembly, in fact, took me about an hour, but it was totally straightforward thanks to the excellent instructions and the “dummie-proof” packing of the nuts and bolts etc (they are vacuum sealed, in strips, on a card and labelled according to the required step in the assembly process). This is a quality machine:good and heavy but able to be folded up and wheeled around, when required. One small aspect which attracted me to this particular model is that the computer/console runs off batteries (supplied) – rather than requiring a socket for an adapter. This means i can locate it in an area where sockets are at a premium. A supplied transmitter, with chest strap, links in easily with the console to display pulse rate, and the remaining functions, which are fairly self-evident – such as stroke-rate and distance – all work as expected. For me, an enfeebled 63-year-old, resistance setting “6” gives a really good workout. All-in-all, a top supplier and an excellent product.
