Stamina Avari Magnetic Exercise Rowing Machine

After looking around for a suitable low impact weight loss program I settled on acquiring a good indoor rowing machine. After reading reviews and visiting a sports store, I settled for the Stamina Avari magnetic rowing machine. The machine was just within my price range and the store attendant gave me a quick walk through on how to set it up and use it for best results (form is essential).

After watching a few videos I set up the machine in about 30 minutes and was surprised it was good to go. The relatively small looking machine was surprisingly comfortable and the magnetic resistance allows me to change resistance without breaking rhythm. The seat is also set on a very comfortable incline that helps increase stress at the crucial parts of the rowing motion. The incline also helps build a good pace and rhythm relatively fast.

Stamina Avari Magnetic Rowing Machine: Rating and Analysis

Stamina Avari magnetic Fitness Rower 4.0

To rate a suitable rowing machine it may be useful to consider the weight supported, durability, value for money, value addition and size. One of the great things about this rowing machine is its size. The machine is designed with an extruding inclined aluminium beam that provides very smooth motion. The machine is very durable and copes well with even rigorous work outs. However, though it is not indicated, it appears limited in terms of the weight capacity it can support. In addition to that it is not locally manufactured (US) and though it is very tough access to parts may be an issue.


In selecting an indoor rowing machine there are many options. Magnetic resistance rowing machines are considerably new in the market and are a good alternative. The Stamina Avari Magnetic rowing machine promises to deliver good quality for a considerably long time. However, it fails when it comes to storing info on your workout and tracking progress.
