  • Definite promise
    Very pleased so far with rower. Look forward to long-term use. Wee bit tricky assembling but nothing major. I agree with many other reviewers, the straps are a confounded nuisance and needed to be altered

  • My rower arrived within 48 hours. I was a bit annoyed to find it in pieces and not assembled at all, but after about 40 minutes of profuse sweating in 32 degree heat and the occasional choice word I won the battle. The rower straps are way too long and the pedals were a mission to install as the instructions were a little vague, but I got there in the end.

    The rower is smooth and really is nice & quiet, which allows me to hear the TV, which keeps me on the rower longer.

    I am really happy with my rower. It is very easy to stand up and store out of the way. I would highly recommend this rower to anyone and I would definitely use this company for future purchases.

  • Great product. Works well can feel results already.
    Robyn 2017-12-27 00:00:00.0
  • A good machine for the money, easy to assemble but foot pedals needed adapting to fit on the machine.
    Pete 2017-12-19 00:00:00.0
  • Easy to assemble, works well, and is nice and quiet! I've had some issues with the straps for the pedals not working as well as it could, but that is just a small issue.

  • Good easy to use and assemble only problem is the foot straps are way to big other than that a really good product

    Wendy 2017-07-24 00:00:00.0
  • Works well and easy to setup, only negative thing about the machine is the foot straps but it is easy to work around that.
    Tim 2017-06-12 00:00:00.0
  • So worth the buy for the price. You can control your speed, or focus on both your upper body or lower body, or one of the two at a time. Easy to set up, delivery was on time & well organised (I got a call the day before). Machine exercises majority of your muscles.

  • Love it! Great value for money. Great to use - easy to stand up out of the way. Little challenging to put together (fortunately I like puzzles) but got there in the end!
    Ingrid 2017-02-13 00:00:00.0
  • This rower is effective, it works well, serves its function. Only cons would be that the rope isn't securely attached to the handle so say the rope slips off it goes back into the machine. Otherwise, this is an excellent product, would HIGHLY recommend.
    Bruno 2017-02-05 00:00:00.0
  • Good Value for Money, The pedals are not the best, but a small modification made them easier to use, and stop my feet from coming out of them
    Darryl 2017-01-18 00:00:00.0
  • Butt aching, lung busting good. Exactly the effect I was looking for. Loved the way instructions, tools and parts kit was designed for the technically challenged (that's me!). Even my husband likes it. Must pop off for a row now.

  • All good. Deal, delivery, price, quality. I only get it since 2 weeks. So have to wait to see how it goes in time.
    dominique 2016-10-09 00:00:00.0
  • Quite impressed for quality price comparison. Does what it should. We only found two downsides, one was the magnet in the bottom off the seat was not strong enough, so counter didnt work. Replaced it with a nice strong one and it's now working. The other thing are the foot paddles are quite slippery and the straps don't hold shoes in place well, so we did a small adjusting for that too. All good now. Happy with purchased

    Luke 2016-08-10 00:00:00.0
  • very quite and excellent for its price. It is a very fast and easy assemble that does not require much skill or effort. However, it is quite light, so if it is not on a grippy surface, it may move around when you are using it. Therefore gym floor tiles or other surfaces that have a lot of grip will be extremely beneficial with this item.

  • Great machine.
    Easy to set up and use.
    It really works the legs and back.
    I have the tension setting at 4, so have a few more levels to achieve
    Best fitness machine I have bought!!
    I do not overdo it, and try to be consistent with my technique.
    The examples in the documentation are very helpful.
    Joe 2016-01-09 00:00:00.0
  • Just what an 81-year-old needs for upper body strengthening -- arms and shoulders, chest and back. Gentle, low impact, fun to use.

  • I can't speak highly enough of this company or their product. We purchased this rower and found it to be reasonably easy to put together. There was an accompanying video which was very helpful. We ran into a small problem with the fitting, emailed them and received a call and was instructed over the phone how to fix it. Then, as luck would have it we found the display developed a fault and once again their response was swift and the problem resolved with no problems whatsoever. The product itself is great. It has a great range of difficulty from easy to pretty hard. All of our family are using it every day. It's also very quiet to use so it doesn't interfere with others doing their thing nearby. So to sum it up, we are very happy with our purchase and the company has a wonderful customer service team who are helpful and prompt in sorting out any little problem. This alone, is worth knowing as it gives a level of confidence when purchasing product. Thank you No.1 Fitness.

  • My partner and I recently purchased the LifeGear 360 rower from Number 1 Fitness and were surprised to see how fast it came. Within a few days I was excitedly putting it together on the lounge floor following the simple instructions. We have found it to be a great way to increase our heart rates before and during a workout, and it doesn't take up much room in the lounge or look intrusive as we keep it there.
    Laura and Carl.
