This machine is sure very effective at working on your upper and lower body muscles. It is budget-friendly and manufactured by a household name fitness manufacturing company. That is to say it has got a reputation. It has got a smooth rowing that is comparable to that of a real rowing boat.

You see, it is overall body workout equipment that also offers low-impact aerobic exercises that increase your metabolism for better calorie and fat burning without having any negative impact on the joints.
It has an added advantage of extraordinary features such as the In-Touch® Fitness Monitor that gives you 12 already programmed workouts. You do not have to struggle with the assembly despite its outstanding features. Stamina Avari Programmable Magnetic Rower is a rowing machine that is user-friendly just as it is budget-friendly as well.

Well, I did some digging as to what the drawbacks could be but hardly found something serious. However, some users think that the seat is very discomfiting, and the fact they have to be on the machine for like 45 minutes of working out. I know that most equipment’s seats are usually discomfiting at the beginning, but after a while of using you will get used to it.
To be honest, there is no equipment that would be 100% perfect without any flaws, so also with Stamina Avari® Programmable Magnetic Rower. What really matters is if the pros exceed the cons and if you can really live with the possibility of the seat being a pain in the ass.
Nevertheless, this is a good recommendable machine with sophisticated features and technology, designed to help you achieve your goal. It is an advantage for those who have space and as well to those who don’t have space for storage because of its ability to fold.
