V-Fit Fit-Start Single Hydraulic Rowing Machine, Very satisfactory purchase

The perfect height to randomly trip over. The perfect height to randomly trip over. Apart from that, it’s pretty sturdy and fun to use. It uses up a lot of floor space, but anything else would probably be even more bulky. It’s still probably the best you’ll get for the money, a good piece of kit for a beginner like me, and as i said before, it’s fun and easy to use. Just don’t kill yourself falling over it.

So light and easy to store away very simple to build, well worth the money i paid. I’d recommend this to all ages.

I am very pleased with the rowing machine, with the 12 power settings it really can put you through the mill. I reckon i have rowed my living room about 20 miles.

Quite worried when i saw the exploded diagram in the manual but, in fact, very easy to assemble. Wise guidance on how to use it. Good to be able to work out at home and not get into the car and drive to a gym. Am very happy with its performance. Maybe not up to the state of the arts machines at the gym but perfectly adequate for my purpose.

Booklet containing lot of useful tips and warm up exercises. Can’t argue with that for under £70.

V-fit Fit-Start Single Hydraulic Rowing Machine : Great for beginnners who are trying to get into fitness. I gave this to a friend as it is very basic. Great for beginnners who are trying to get into fitness but not for someone who wants a hard workout.

    Seat is a bit hard but good for someone like myself who is in his sixties.
    1. Decide what you want to work before bying this product. A lot smaller than i thought and the seat does not go back far enough to get a full pull on your stomach ideal if you just want to work your arms and legs.

    Pros are that it is easy to move around as it is not too heavy. My main grumble is that the seat is not very firmly anchored and i slip forward when rowing and have to adjust my position frequently.

    1. Having not exercised for some time decided to go for all over workout and rowing machine was my choice. Easy to assemble and comes with little booklet containing some exercise warm ups and routines.

  5. As you’d expect for the price. As you might expect for the price but pretty basic & rickety even when everything is assembled correctly. The footplates feel quite flimsy and some of the holes aren’t drilled in quite the right place. Yes, you get a bit of a workout and it beats sitting on the sofa in front of the tv, so as others have said it’s ok for beginners but this is not a machine for an intermediate or serious rower.
