Sunny Healthy & Fitness offers a full motion rowing machine: SF-RW5624. A full motion arm allows users to ensure proper form and motion while rowing, and the magnetic resistance allows for muscle and strength development.
Realistic and fluid, this model is different than what you’ve seen before.
Users can row asymmetrically, or they can row symmetrically. This means you’ll be able to row with both arms symmetrically, or you can row on one side at a time asymmetrically.
- Sturdy and solid with an assembly time of an hour or less
- Tools included for quick assembly
- Very quiet operation with free arm movement
- Foldable design that saves storage
- Heavy package and difficult getting out of the box
- Still large when folded
The packaging is heavy, and when this machine is folded, it still takes up considerable room. If you have a larger space, it’s better to leave it out for easy operation.
We have a lot of love for the SF-RW5624 – this is one of the best rowing machines we have reviewed. It’s not your normal model, and this is a good thing. We mentioned that assembly was quick, and there are tools provided so that you’re not left scrambling to find tools to put this unit together.
The packaging is heavy (around 100 pounds), so you’ll want another person to help bring the box inside your home.
But once assembled, you’ll be happy with your choice.
The machine is very sturdy, and the seat is padded to provide immense comfort when rowing. The rowing arms can be used independently, or together. When used asymmetrically, you’ll be able to target your arm muscles and row on just one side of the machine.
This allows for an arm-targeted workout.
Most users remain in the same place to work the biceps, core and shoulder muscles when rowing asymmetrically.
For a complete workout, switch to the symmetrical setup and begin rowing. This setup allows you to row with a full range of motion working your shoulders, biceps, core and leg muscles.
And if you find the workout to be too easy, adjust the magnetic resistance levels to increase the intensity. There are 8 resistance levels provided:
- Levels 1 – 4 are easy, but for a long workout, they’ll provide additional caloric burn and muscle toning.
- Levels 5 – 6 are moderate, and this is when your muscles begin to burn.
- Levels 7 – 8 are difficult, and this is for the more serious users trying to build muscle
You’ll find that the tension knob sits right near your foot pads (with a strap to keep your feet in place). We find that the tension knob’s position allows for easy adjustment when rowing.
Because your workout is dictated by time and intensity, you’ll find that the digital monitor allows you to judge and adjust your workout. The digital monitor screen displays the necessary information for a successful rowing session:
- Total count
The monitor keeps you focused and motivated to maintain or increase your exercise intensity.
Once you’re done with your workout, fold the machine up and store it in the corner of the room.
Sunny Health & Fitness offers a full range of motion with impeccable quality and resistance that makes it perfect for building muscle.
If you want a high-end model that will last years and provides a complete workout, wait no longer.
