Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine

Being the head of a family that values health and fitness could drain the purse dry. Every member of my family had a gym membership, and a considerable portion of my monthly salary was allotted for that purpose. I didn’t know about the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine then. This single machine could have solved my family’s fitness needs and saved a ton of cash.

Who can use the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine?

My family members, including me, are new to rowing. Moreover, we’re not too particular whether the machine we choose mimics the rowing action in a boat or not. My parents would have loved this machine. Both are above 55 years old and the Dual Direction resistance would have been the perfect choice for them. Based on my understanding of the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine, older women and men, and novice fitness rowers will get the best out of this machine. This fitness machine might not be a good choice for extremely fit people who have grown beyond mild to moderate workout sessions.

Introducing the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine is a great way to improve your overall fitness and health by toning muscles and burning fat. This machine also happens to be part of a very small group – machines that have bungee resistance system.

The rowing machine is constructed with premium steel with parts that provide quiet and smooth rowing experience. To help you get the most out of the low-impact workout, the manufacturers have used the Dual Direction Resistance system with four adjustable tension levels.

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine is also fitted with a large footboard, capable of accommodating large feet and slip-proof straps to hold the feet in the right position during the workout. The data that the rowing machine tracks and measures are displayed on an LCD screen. The rowing machine is durable and comfortable, and at the same time, it’s compact and easy to store.

Features and Benefits

Elastic Cord Resistance: Instead of hydraulic-piston, magnetic, water, or air resistance, the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Rowing Machine uses the bungee or elastic cord system. You’ll feel the resistance both during the forward and backward motion. Additional resistance is provided by the angled seat rail.

Quiet Rowing: The high-quality bungee cord does not produce any noise. You can exercise to your heart’s content while others watch TV or listen to music in the same room.

LCD Display: The easy to read screen displays the following: scan, calories, strokes per minute, all-time total strokes, strokes in the current session, and time.

Seat: The seat sits on a high-grade steel bearing rollers that will make your to-and-fro motion smooth and quiet. The large seat will add stability and make the exercise session more comfortable.

Large Footboard: Similar to most other rowing machines, the footboard in the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 has a textured footrest. Anti-slip straps are fitted to keep the feet in place.

Final Thoughts

I feel the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5606 Elastic Cord Rowing Machine is a good fit for the right individual. It’s a compact, effective, and affordable choice for beginners and elderly people who prefer short daily workout sessions, instead of high-resistance and high-impact machines.
