LifeCORE Fitness R90 Rowing Machine, Black Frame

Black frame LifeCORE Fitness R90 is a high end, heavy duty rowing machine with a sturdy and durable construction and reliable performance, smooth and silent belt drive that needs no maintenance (rather than a chain) at an affordable price for its build quality and features (as the slim rail version of R100 and comparable to the Concept2 Rower). It has both the air and magnetic resistance of 6 levels that can be adjusted through the knob underneath the handle, a large single color digital LCD display panel powered by four C size batteries as performance monitor with “race” and readouts including total time, 500m time, distance, strokes per minute, pulse, watts, total strokes, speed, calories and pulse that works with an optional chest strap and race and manual programs, a foldable design with a fast release framelock mechanism and built-in transport wheels for easy relocation and storage, extruded aluminium slide rail for smooth operation and sturdy steel support, ergonomic handlebar with a 10 degree bend for rowing in a natural hand and arm position and adjustable footrests with solid nylon straps and a large comfy seat as part of a comfortable and ergonomic design, air vent for adjustable cooling and a heavy duty flywheel that also acts like a fan with air coming out as you pull the handle and helps with smooth and quiet rowing experience.

LifeCORE Fitness R90 weighs 80 pounds, can carry a maximum user weight of 300 pounds, measures 96 x 18 x 41 inches as assembled, is 19.5 inches higher off the floor so anyone can mount and dismount easily and takes up a bit of space but has a foldable design and measures 41 x 17.5 x 65 inches as folded. It is easy to set up with tools and instructions provided and easy to operate, is great for a whole body workout without any burden on knees and joints, suitable for use by anyone at beginner and advanced levels, for crossfit training or any high performance workout, military, athletes, in homes, hotels and commercial settings as it has a tough construction and is built to last a long time like the other LifeCore fitness units. Footrests are the easily adjustable quick release variety with separate heel supports and they are good for different sizes of shoes. Air resistance is used in level 1 and it automatically switches to magnetic resistance at level 2 and above. Race function is for motivation purposes and lets you race with the computer and try and beat it and the performance and results are displayed on the control panel and with the regular “Manual” setting so you can simply start to row. It comes with a two year limited warranty for the console and parts and any moving parts, three years for the frame, 1 year for labor repairs as well as a 30 day money back guarantee if you’re not happy with it for whatever reason.
