A popular Rower in the ranks of Stamina Inc. is the Stamina 1399 Rowing Machine. This stamina air rower review will tell you the plus points the product has as well as the areas the product needs to improve on. Let us look into the key points.

The seat of the Rower is specially covered with foam for comfort. Nothing can rival the display unit. At least when the rower is budget friendly. There is also a manual for people to follow.

The Stamina Air Rower Rowing Machine model 1399 has the “Air Resistance” feature. This saves you the trouble of adjusting the resistance levels every time you exercise. It monitors the strength level of your muscles and adjusts the level of resistance on its own. Another highlight is how close the machine is to the ground. The elderly will surely feel at ease while using this rower. Stamina Air Rower Rowing Machine has a competent display unit capable of showing you a number of stats (for example: calorie you burnt, the distance you covered, the time you consumed and more) for your ease.
When we speak about the Comfort level of such rowers we focus on three aspects. First one is the seat. It is firm and beautifully coaxed with foam.

How will you Store it?
Storing Stamina Air Rower 1399 Rowing Machine is easy. You will just have to fold it. By folding, you are saving 50% of your floor space. The machine isn’t particularly heavy or oversized like many others. So, that certainly helps. If you are an athlete touring from hotel to hotel, it is your perfect portable gym that you can tag along with.
The Only Drawback (If you consider it a “Drawback”)
Only thing I am going to warn you about is the sound it makes. It is dependent on “Air Resistance” and so the “Resistance Fans” are noisy. The noise tends to increase when you work hard and the fans also work hard to resist you. While some may not like the noise level, The Humming noise seemed tolerable to me if you have music running in the background.
Well, the sound is about the only drawback I encountered when using this product. Otherwise everything seemed perfect from my perspective. The price and the warrantee (standard 90-days on parts and 3 years on the frame) seemed reasonable enough. Aside from the perks, it is capable of burning 300 to 500 units of calorie depending on how long you spend on it.
