Stamina body trac glider 1050 rowing machine review is indeed a review that would clarify any question(s) you may have regarding it. This equipment was designed to give you the feel of a real rowing boat. It’s one of a kind hydraulic piston resistance that ensures you get the best and challenge yourself to the last. Which also guarantees that you get results or achieve your goal within a reasonable short period of workout.
It is definitely good and made for individuals that intend to lose weight or stay in an overall physical fitness. It has two oars like a real rowing boat, but the difference is that, you get to row that boat where ever you like in your home. It is noteworthy to mention the fact that, it is a compact equipment that could be moved around easily and be stored in a small space. I like to call it handy because of its fold-ability and light weight of 39 pounds. You can literally carry it along with you to any where you go…OK, may be not quite but it is definitely space friendly and you don’t have problem moving it around without asking for someone else’ assistance.
Console/Monitor-Is one of its great features, considering the price at which you will get it on Amazon. It is a cheap equipment, yet it managed to come with an LCD display that will enable you to know how far you have rowed in each session. And it will also tell you how long you’ve spent in each session, which is the time, calories burned and stroke count.
However, it does not have any inbuilt program, but if you need something more sophisticated look up the Concept2 model D.
Adjustable Gas Shock Resistance– This is the hydraulic piston that is located underneath the equipment with 12 resistance settings.
Strong Frame– The Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 Rowing Machine was built with a strong and sturdy frame. As a matter of fact, it is too good for its price.
User Weight– It supports up to 250 pounds of weight, which means anyone that is 250 pounds or below can use this equipment.
Oars- It has a semblance of real oars that give the feeling of a real rowing a boat.
Affordable– With all these features, it is extremely affordable sold at ($114). Just about anyone can afford to get one.
Good for taller people– Most times, we found out that most equipment were not OK for taller people because of their height. But it is the opposite with Stamina Body Trac Glide 1050 Rowing Machine. At last, taller people can be rest assured that they will be comfortable while exercising with this one.
That being said, it has quite a number of downsides you should know about.
- The seat is not padded, as a result, it is not comfortable for some people while exercising with it
- There is also the issue of the hydraulic piston getting weak at some point, thereby reducing the resistance impact
- The monitor not so wonderful, but OK for the price you are paying
- There is also the issue of getting your feet strapped every now and then, because they keep on popping off the foot strap while exercising.
