The Body Sculpture Rowing Machine is a nice a simple rowing machine that is designed to do what it says on the tin, theres nothing particularly fancy about it, just offers you a means to get in shape. Even the technologically-impaired will be able to set up this piece of equipment and fully take advantage of all of its features.

The makers of this rowing machine obviously put a lot of thought into its comfort level. Your workout may be grueling, but the magnetic resistance (which ensures that strokes are smooth), pivoting footplates, adjustable footstraps, and, of course, the large plush seat ensure that you remain comfortable during your workout making it more enjoyable.

This Rowing Machine can be used for a number of different exercises due to the extra hand/ foot supports and the locking seat. You can use this rower to perform a few isolation resistance exercises while standing, they won’t make you look like Arnold Schwarzenegger but it will help you to tone a few wobbly areas, it will also help to prevent you from becoming bored when performing the same routine day in day out.

The display has all the features that you would expect of a model like this. It tracks the time, stroke count, total count, scan and calories burned. Nothing fancy but has everything you need.

While this machine may not be enough for a professional rower, it does offer casual or not-as-experienced users plenty of difficulty levels from which to choose, allowing them to progress through each resistance setting at their own pace, making the Body Sculpture Rowing Machine a piece of equipment that can be used for years by all interested parties.

While the main parts of the machine are made of sturdy aluminum, cosmetic detailing is made of plastic, which is unfortunate as it does make it look a bit cheap, but it is cheap so I can’t really complain.

Pros

  • Nice and quiet due to the magnetic resistance
  • Comfortable
  • Versatile due to extra features
  • Easy to assemble
  • Foldable

Cons

  • Plastic covers look tacky
