Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:The price, the appearance of durability.
Cons:Too many flaws or deficiencies - not perfect in many regards.
The Bottom Line: If you want a rowing machine for about $250.00 this may suffice. If you are capable, "re-engineer" the footpetals.
If you are expecting a "top notch" rower - look elsewhere.
I had been in the market for a good quality rowing machine with some price considerations. I decided on the Phoenix because of price, appearance, and advertised specs. The rower has disappointments but I believe that I can still get good workouts from it. I do intend, however, to purchase a better quality (more expensive) rower next year. To me if you buy fitness equipment it should be used regularly - therefore it should be durable and have no "nagging" defects or deficiencies. The jury is still out on the durability (only used two months), but my main beef with this unit is the footpetals. This unit may suffice for many, but I personally work out hard. I do believe that many will have a hard time accepting the footpetals - at any price. Cons: False advertisement: "Glide rail" was advertised as being aluminum - is coated (painted) steel, footpetals are not engineered properly - will not hold feet securely for long unless straps are pulled extremely tight, questionable durability on footstraps, ergonomics seem flawed - not good "feel" of healthclub rower, minimum level of resistance a bit too high, bulky when folded, rowing handle(s) perhaps need to have an angle, computerized readout too small and hard to comprehend - an audible alarm would have been nice, seat uncomfortable after a long session.
