Rowless in Seattle

Don’t let the title of this review throw you off, it is a pun. Seriously though I am very happy with the purchase of the Seattle Wooden Rower. I shopped around for a water-based rower and choose the Seattle Wooden Rower because of price point and aesthetics. The beech wood goes extremely well in my front room and I consider it part of my furniture collection. I have been rowing on a semi regular basis and find the workout enjoyable and challenging. Basically you set the tempo and push yourself as hard as you want. Rating the whole process with 5 stars being the best; Ease of ordering 5 stars, shipping and delivery 4 stars, set up and instructions 4 ½ (easy), quality of components and material 5 stars, Happiness 5 stars. On a side note I was glad to see that this company was Eco Friendly and that they were a member of the Carbon Fund.

Great workout

I have been using this rower since Jan 2011. I have used other rowers in the past, and I thought it was time to go to a rower that had the feel and sound of actually rowing. That has been achieved with the Seattle Wooden Rower. I am not completed satisfied with the product, but for a price of under $800., when the competition is closer to $1200., I feel that I did well. First, the assembly is not as easy as others have described. The “furniture” bolts that are now standard on every u-assemble piece of furniture out there is the main fastener for this product. They are not easy to put in (especially if you have male hands) and some are in very tough places where a tight fit is hard to achieve using a miter wrench. I had to have my daughter put some of them in. Maybe some of the bolts need to be factory-installed. And the belt that attaches to the handles, and runs down the front of the machine, through a pulley, doesn’t necessarily give you the impression that it is going to stay in place for years. Again, mainly because the assembly of the front bolts is awkward and the bolts are very hard to tighten. And even after giving it my best, the front of the rower moves when you are working out – pulling with the belt. Just saying, that a solid, long-lasting piece of equipment should be more sturdy than an office desk which doesn’t have to flex, but is using the same bolts. All this said, the rower has performed well, and no exercise I’ve found can compete with rowing for a total-body workouts. Maybe my Nordic Track, also made of wood, but it gets its use as crosstraining. The Nordic Track has been in use with us since 1991, so the rower has some ground to make up to top that one. I would recommend this product, it gives a great workout, it folds up and out of the way, if you have a space problem, and it is probably a 1/3 less than competing water-tank models. The one thing it lacks is that solid feel, and easy assembly. But as in all things, you get what you pay for, right ?

Pleasantly Surprised……..

I have owned several rowing machines in the past and I think I finally found the right one. I recently purchased the Seattle Wooden Rower to compliment my home gym. Basically I was getting tired of my treadmill and elliptical. Historically speaking I am accustom to purchasing exercise equipment on the internet and either receiving something that is very confusing to assemble or broken. I was pleasantly surprised that the instructions included with the Seattle Wooden Rower were complete and easy to understand. It also showed up in excellent condition and required minimal assembly. This rower has been nothing but a pleasure to use and I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in rowing or if you are ready to upgrade from an older rowing machine. As of today, I can give the Seattle Wooden Rower 5 Stars.
