Total Fit Rowing System REVIEW
One user of the Total Fit Rowing System complains that it is not an effective workout. They increased the resistance level up to maximum but didn’t break a sweat even after 45 minutes. It only caused discomfort by sitting for too long. Another customer says that the machine has cheap construction and broke when a 30 lbs child used it, ergo it wouldn’t be fit for a 150 lbs adult.
As per another user, the calorie tracker was dysfunctional. Another reviewer called it that it flimsy and one says it has weak resistance even at highest setting. For another one the machine lost resistance after just 5-10 minutes. According to one more reviewer its resistance levels are disappointing and they could only feel some resistance when they turned it to 8 of 12 levels. One customer rues that the rower is not sturdy and they found it useless after just the first time of doing 400 reps. Another reviewer says that they are 5’1” tall and couldn’t push the basic equipment back far enough to get full resistance, hence wouldn’t recommend it to anyone under 5’4”.
A user liked the machine but couldn’t manage to tighten the tension and it would be a great equipment if the tension tightened. The numbers on the column did not correspond with the mark on the other side to indicate what number one is on. One user says that their time and distance dial didn’t work in spite of switching on. It didn’t connect with the rower and only flashed zero.
