Pros and cons

According to our rowing machine expert
  • The rowing machine has 34 preset training programs, which allow you to vary your workouts.
  • Because the rowing machine is collapsible, you can easily store it after a workout.
  • The ergometer allows for accurate wattage training, so it's suitable for rehabilitation training.
  • The rowing machine has a single seat rail, which provides less stability than a double rail.

    Very sturdy, quiet rowing machine for a good price.

    Bram Caudron | 4 March 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Feels very sturdy
    • Stable even when rowing a little harder
    • different rowing programs
    • Very quiet, easy to row in the evening while watching TV while the kids are sleeping upstairs.
    • Not so big device
    • Storage takes about 2 minutes because you have to loosen a bolt.
    • heart rate monitor cannot be connected to device itself
    • moving a bit more difficult since you don't have a good grip when the device is folded

    Very solid rowing machine. I've looked at several devices, read reviews and finally chose this one and so far I don't regret it. I have had this device for 1 week now and have already rowed 4 x 30 min each time. There are different programs for rowing that differ in resistance. Very useful. I wrote in the negatives that the storage is rather cumbersome, it is indeed not so nice that you have to loosen a bolt before you can fold the device, but this is certainly no reason not to buy the device. It took some searching the first time to store it, but after the second time it went without saying. If you are looking for a quiet, solid, sturdy rower, this is definitely a good choice.

    • Clear Dutch assembly instruction
    • Feels like a gym machine
    • Excellent for tall people
    • Collapsible
    • Power must be via plug instead of batteries

    The device really feels like a device that is used in the gym. And it has the dimensions for tall people.

    Perfect rower price / quality

    Otto Vanluchene | 24 July 2018 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Silent when in use
    • Soft comfortable seat
    • full body workout
    • Perfectly possible to do while watching TV
    • No heart rate bang included
    • No clear information about which type of heart rate belt (ant+, bluetooth, gymlink)

    Remarkably quiet in use, which is interesting for the neighbors and family members. Also ensures that you can watch TV/Neflix while rowing. Sufficient programs for interval training. Solidly built won't shift on carpet. Please note that a heart rate strap is not included. Purchasing a band is also not easy because I can't find anywhere which connection is necessary (ant+/bluetooth/gymlink)

    I am happy with my purchase
    • Easy to assemble
    • Solid
    • Different programs to train
    • Computer does not save its own programs when power is off

    In the gym I always found the rowing machine a nice device. When I decided that I also wanted to buy 1 myself, I doubted for a long time which device I would go for. The VirtuFit Ergometer Semi-Pro is not one of the cheapest rowing machines on offer, but after looking at several reviews, I finally chose this one.
    The training programs and the thoroughness I read in other reviews were the deciding factor.

    In advance I was a bit apprehensive about the installation, but this was so simple that even with 2 left hands you can put the rowing machine together in no time. the most complicated parts are already completely put together. (See also the manual on the Coolblue site for more information about mounting.)

    I've had the rowing machine for a month now and use it about 4 times a week. (I alternate it with the spinning bike)
    That you can row a program makes it fun to do, that way you work towards something and the resistance keeps getting higher. You can also create programs yourself, but if the device has been disconnected from the power, you will unfortunately lose this program again.

    Rowing is fun to do but boring. I solved this myself by putting an old TV in front of my rowing machine and via a Google Chromecast I now watch an episode of a series every workout. This lasts an hour and that's just a good time for me to stick with it.
    I also bought the Samsung Fit smartwatch after a week at Coolblue. I really find this fitness tracker a solution during training, this watch keeps track of my heart rate and after the training I can view my performance in the app on my phone with a graph and see at what time I was in which heart rate zone.
    Because this is linked to my weight and height, the app also gives a better picture of my burned calories than the computer of the rowing machine.
    I notice that after a month of rowing I have a lower heart rate and can last longer.

    When I first got the device, it was almost silent, now after about a month of exercise, the rowing machine makes a bit more noise, but this is not disturbing.
    I am happy with my purchase and can recommend it to anyone.

    The best choice for the big rower.
    • little noise
    • Robust
    • Sufficient resistance
    • Display a bit dark

    I row twice a week for half an hour. I've been doing that for 5 years. First had on advice ;-( bought the Weslo Cove but it really has too little resistance. This trainer rows quietly and feels very solid. The belt is also nice and high so that you automatically stay upright. The trainer has a number of programs but you can also just row in resistance 1 to 16 for half an hour, the disadvantage is that the time starts running before you have set the resistance level.

    • is very sturdy and stable
    • nice movement
    • many programs
    • foldable

    I am very happy with the purchase of this virtufit rowing machine! I train on it a few times a week and that way I work well on my overall fitness. The many programs give me a lot of challenge and the display which is illuminated is also useful in these dark days!!!

    Good and nice and quiet
    • Very quiet, makes almost no noise
    • Stable and compact device
    • Illuminated display is easy to read and within easy reach.
    • Stands firmly on the floor, does not shift on slippery floors.
    • Many programs to choose from
    • Folding up is still a bit of a thing, you have to loosen your bolts and tighten them again. Could have been easier
    • Folding up the slide bar is quite heavy.

    Very quiet, makes almost no noise during training. The seat is stable, the device is stable and does not move on the floor. Illuminated display at eye level is very pleasant and easy to set up.

    Nice, quiet rowing machine
    • Quiet
    • Many possibilities
    • Easy assembly

    I have had the rowing machine for a week now, assembly was very easy, it is very quiet and the programs are extensive. Minus point, only the foot pedals could be a little more practical. A bit clumsy with that Velcro. Otherwise very satisfied!

    Delivery could be better
    • Solid device
    • rows well
    • Not delivered on agreed dates on delivery, box 2 was missing so we had to wait a few more days
    • The screws and bolts were loose in the box had already been used packaging had already been opened

    It's a very solid device
