My Experience with this Rower (The Good Side)
The first good thing about this rower is that it is Pre-assembled. So, you don’t have to spend extra minutes trying to decipher the user manual. The footrests will give you backup and even if you are 5 feet 11 inches tall, you shouldn’t have problems using the rower. The resistance and the various options of exercises were customized suiting my preferences. I got a polar T-32 chest strap with the product. This made tracking my cardio activities easy. It generally rates your heart’s wellbeing from 1 to 6. Also the brand gives you a boost in terms of warrantee period on this (I got 3 years’ warrantee on the parts and steel frame had lifetime warrantee)
My Experience with This Rower (The Bad)
It would only be fair to say that this product has some glitches (they are not particularly drawbacks). First of all, the readability of the monitor of this machine can prove to be difficult for some. Also I found some of the instructions into the manual hard to comprehend. One of my family members had an issue with the heartbeat tracking system of this rower in particular. I thought I might have heard a rocking noise when the seat hit the rubber beneath.
With everything said and done, I’d still favor the Kettler Stroker Rower for obvious reasons. Here the pros outweigh the cons considerably. The rower offers you good perks at good value. Various reviews stated how comfortable it is for the people. The material is meant to last for years to come and the company offers a generous warrantee on a good product. It is a definite recommendation from me.
