Want to have a peek at the Circuit Fitness AMZ-986RW Deluxe Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine, Watch at the AMZ-986RW in action
The Circuit Fitness AMZ-986RW Deluxe Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine is one of the newest rowing machines fully designed for home use. The rower is slightly more prominent compared to other rowing machines, which is great if you're tall. In terms of features, the 5 kg flywheel is coupled with magnetic resistance and with a fitness LCD monitor that allows you to set your personal metrics gaols and to race against the computer with 15 different settings. It also features a foam coated handlebar, pivoting pedals, and a folding system with wheels on the front, making it easy to move out of the way when not in use. Since it's a magnetic resistance rower, there's no wear and tear between the resistance elements, so you don't have to worry about replacing any brake pads. The whole maintenance requires you to keep the seat rail clean, which offers excellent value. People at different levels of physical fitness already enjoy and experience comfortable and productive workouts with the AMZ-986RW without paying for an expensive gym membership.
The Circuit Fitness AMZ-986RW Deluxe Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine combines steel, aluminium, and ABS parts in its construction. Its front section, which integrates the flywheel, the magnetic brake, and the other drive and resistance elements, comes pre-assembled. Therefore, you only need to add the unit's base bars, the rail, the seat, the console, and the footrests. All the structures and the bases are in steel. The sliding rail is made of steel, and its side sections that cradle the seat's wheels are in aluminium alloy. Of course, the covers of the flywheel are made of durable ABS material. The assembly is straightforward, the rower comes with the manual and all the tools, and it shouldn't take more than 30-40 minutes. Once you've finished assembling, you will notice that it is pretty long, measuring 213 cm and 52 cm wide but compact and tidy with an aesthetic foldable design. The rail is 101 cm long, so the machine should easily accommodate users at least up to 190 cm (6'3″). With all the parts assembled, the rower weighs 41 kg and then offers excellent stability; its rear base integrates adjustable stabilizers, so you can perfectly level it. The machine is heavy. However, this rower's rail is foldable, and its relocation is easy due to the two wheels on the front base, reducing its length to only 124 cm. Once you start rowing, you'll find it's a sturdy and stable model.
The seat base is made of steel. It integrates three sets of wheels that combine sealed ball bearings for a smooth motion. The wheels have a rubberized outer cover to eliminate noise, and they're concealed by the metallic side sections of the seat frame for maximum safety. Both the seat assembly and the sliding rail are durable enough to support users up to 136 kg. The seat top is a mould-injected high-density foam material, and it's large to provide plenty of contact surface. It's also designed to prevent slipping during the rowing motion's pushing stage, allowing you to exercise comfortably for a longer time. The rowing position is good. The seat is around 30 cm off the ground, so it's easy to get on the rower and position your feet. The footrests are wide and will keep your feet stable while you're sliding up and down. They accommodate sports shoes of all sizes and have a non-slip surface, while the adjustable foot straps and heel guards provide improved comfort for your workout. The pivoting design allows each footrest to change its angle slightly with a maximum of 70° to allow a natural positioning for your feet every time you pull the handlebar. The rower's pulling handle consists of a simple straight bar with rubber foam grips for maximum comfort and sits nicely in the hands. It's attached to a heavy-duty nylon mesh strap which provides a smooth operation. Like many rowing machines, the pulling handle does not integrate any pulse sensors. However, the console does have a pulse reading function.
The Circuit Fitness AMZ-986RW Deluxe Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine comes with a mid-range LCD console that is easy to read and use and requires only two AA batteries to work. It displays workout data such as distance in meters, time, stroke rate, calories, and it's also compatible with a 5 Khz chest strap to show your heart rate and use the Recovery function. It offers multiple workout metrics at once, so you don't have to use a scan function to rotate them. Also, in sleep mode, it shows the current date, room temperature, and clock. The unit has two main workout modes. The Manual Mode offers the possibility to select goals for time, distance, strokes, calories, and pulse. Once you choose a target, you can row freely; the unit will countdown from the selected value until you reach your goal, and it will notify you. Users enjoy the other one, the Race Mode. With 15 levels of training difficulty, you will compete against the computer to reach a selected time goal. The console doesn't control the resistance, but the rower comes with a gear lever, so you control the resistance while you exercise.
Circuit Fitness AMZ-986RW Deluxe Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine integrates a manual magnetic resistance. It means that when you pull the handlebar, the internal 5 kg flywheel with a perimeter-weighted design starts turning against the magnets; this gives consistency to the motion. However, this inertia creates energy; when you pull the gear lever towards you, the magnetic brake moves closer to the flywheel and increases the rowing difficulty. Nevertheless, you can train wherever you want as you don't need to use electricity from the mains. Also, it's quiet and doesn't need any lubrication; the internal drive system involves a belt, not a chain. So, your neighbours or other persons in your household shouldn't bother. It has 8 levels of resistance that are selected using the rather fancy-looking stick-shift on the central column. The first tension level provides a light resistance, excellent for recovery training or for warming up. The higher setting offers considerably more intense tension, great if you are looking for a more consistent cardio workout.
