This model offers a different kind of rowing experience and plenty of great features.
Wind resistance can be considered both a benefit and a drawback of this machine. On one hand, wind resistance forces you to row faster and harder in order to see gains. On the other hand, many reviewers stated that this type of resistance winds up forcing your arms to do the bulk of the work instead of your legs.
The built-in monitor helps you keep track of your progress. It displays the time, your speed, the distance you’ve rowed and the number of calories you’ve burned. It’s a basic monitor, but you really don’t need a complicated computer with multiple workouts.
The Air was designed with comfort in mind. The seat is padded and upholstered to prevent discomfort when sitting on the machine. The footplates are also oversized to accommodate just about any sized user.
The extended seat rail allows even tall users to get a great workout using this unit. Reviewers who were over 6’ claimed that they were able to fully extend their legs while rowing.
If you’re short on space, you can fold up for easy storage in a closet or the corner of the room. The built-in wheels also make it easy to transport from one room to another.
Just like any other model on the market, there were a few things that we didn’t like about this model.
Only One Resistance Level
Because this uses wind for resistance, you can’t adjust the resistance levels. The only way to build up more resistance is to row harder and faster. Some reviewers also pointed out that the slack in the beginning of the pull forces your arms to do the bulk of the work instead of your legs.
Can Be Noisy
Again, this is a air resistance model, so you shouldn’t expect a quiet workout. The faster you row, the more resistance you build up and the louder the fan gets. On a bright note – the fan does feel great while you’re working out.
The Stamina Air may not offer multiple resistance levels, but it still offers an excellent workout that really focuses on building up your endurance. As an added bonus, the machine folds away for easy storage and is a breeze to assemble. No matter whether you’re a beginner or experienced user, this is a great mid-range machine that’s perfect for any home workouts.
