4.0 out of 5 stars Happy enough, 11 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Body Sculpture BR3010 Rower & Gym (Sports)
Having got to my mid 40's and finally admitting that heavy duty gym work is no longer as enjoyable or as personally necessary as it once was I opted for this. I was looking for something that would give a reasonable cardio as well as creating a good tone. This is a decent sturdy rower, not too big and with a wide variety of additional exercise possibilities. It took about 4o minutes to assemble using the basic kit supplied. I'd read in a few of the previous reviews that the tools weren't suffient but I honestly can't see why this would be the case. I have a well stocked tool box of my own but I'm not going to dig around in it pointlessly. It was relatively simple to build and all fit well. It folds up nicely but still takes up a little bit of space but is easy to move and set back up. My only slight disappointment is the actual rowing facility could do with a bit more resistance but it works up a sweat and tones in the right areas.

I've combined it with a decent mini stepper and several crunches for a good overall 50 minute workout that does the job. Recently I've started to suffer with varying degrees of tennis elbow(probably years of badly formed bench presses) but this machine has enough low impact versatility to work around it without suffering afterwards. A bit more resistance would have gained it 5stars but that depends what you're looking for.(My wife thinks it difficult enough as it is!)

A nice looking, solid piece of kit,not too noisy and nicely priced. Try not to keep the perma-smile of the bloke on the DVD though, it looks painful.
