Reviews of the best rowing machines

Rowing Machine Reviews​

Some people are happy enough using the rowing at their local gym but, for many exercisers, a rower makes for the ideal at-home workout machine.

Having your own rowing machine means you never need to miss a workout because you are short of time, that you never have to wait for the machine you want to use to become available when the gym is crowded, that you can work out any time of the day or night and that you and your family can get fit and stay fit in the comfort of your own home.

As rowing machines are generally hardwearing and long-lasting, it pays to seek out the best machine you can afford – one that you will enjoy using for many years to come. There are literally hundreds of rowing machines on the market and while some are excellent, others are considerably less so and it’s not necessarily the case that more expensive is better.

To help you select the right machine for your requirements, we have reviewed the best rowing machines on the market so you can make an informed, educated choice before you part with your hard-earned cash. Each review covers important information including value for money, features, storability and ease of use so you can easily compare one rower to another.
