It's one of the new modern magnetic stationary rowing machines on the market for both Strength & Cardiovascular Training from the comfort of your home. It's a sturdy and durable rower with a sizeable comfortable foam padded seat that glides smoothly on the frame. It also features a foam coated handlebar, a Fitness LCD monitor with Scan function, a 4 kg flywheel with magnetic resistance, and oversized textured pedals, which offers an overall great value for money. You can expect a trouble-free and reliable operation from it for a long time to come. It is a low-impact workout rowing machine that is easy on your joints and knees.

- Although it's a rower made for home use, it has a sturdy construction. Most of the rower's structural frame uses steel. However, it integrates ABS outer plastic covers for the drive system, the footrests, and several other surfaces. The rear base is steel made, and the main rail features a steel core, but its side grooves on which the seat slides of aluminium. The rower measures 183 cm (L) x 98 cm (W) x 48 cm (H), and the rail is 86 cm long, so the unit should accommodate users up to 188 cm (6'2″) with a maximum user weight capacity of 136 kg. All the steel parts show a scratch and corrosion-resistant powder finish. When building the rowing machine, the front part of the frame that holds the flywheel and the resistance system is already assembled, enclosed by the ABS shrouds. You only need to build the other elements, and it should take about 40 minutes to have your rower ready to use. It comes with an essential toolkit and step-by-step assembly instruction. The Circuit Fitness AMZ-979RW Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine has a compact design and takes little space in your workout area; the rail can be folded up with a quick-release pin to save space and reduce its length to approximately 91 cm. The fully assembled machine weighs 29 kg, and you can quickly relocate it as its front base features a set of transport rollers. You can store it in a convenient part of your house when you're not using it. Regarding maintenance, the most important thing here is keeping the aluminium rail clean and checking for loose bolts and parts from time to time; the internal components do not require any lubrication. So, you can expect tremendously efficient and smooth workout sessions from this rowing machine and increase your cardio endurance over time.

- The Circuit Fitness AMZ-979RW Foldable Magnetic Rower features a large seat designed to provide optimal comfort during your workouts. It is 33 cm wide, offering plenty of contact surfaces. The mould injected seating with a high-density contoured pad is sturdy and durable with an ergonomic design and anti-slip surface, preventing you from sliding off it during your exercise session. Its base is made of steel and integrates three sets of wheels that slide through the grooves of the aluminium side rails. The wheels have internal sealed ball bearings and rubberized covers on the exterior to minimize noise and deliver a smooth seat movement. The seat is 28 cm above floor level. It's not too high or too low, so it may be easy for users to take a position on it. If exercising your legs is among your priorities, this rower is the right one for you in the long term. The rail is not entirely horizontal, and the seat is higher at the rear and lower at the front, resulting in a more effortless recovery motion during each stroke and a slightly better leg workout. The footrests also play an essential role, featuring a non-slip surface, adjustable Velcro straps to keep your feet in place, fit users with different foot sizes, and a rear-guard element that adds stability to your feet. An important aspect here is their pivoting design so they can move on their axis and tilt forward. Therefore, this is useful if you have long feet, so you can slightly adjust the position of your feet during each stroke for better comfort. Of course, they have stoppers that will keep them at a maximum angle of 70°. The rower features a pulling handlebar with rubberized grips to ensure a proper grip to focus on your training session and is attached to a nylon strap, highly resistant to abrasion.

- The resistance system engineered by Circuit Fitness for its Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine AMZ-979RW integrates a mechanic magnetic resistance system connected to the Drive System. It uses energy created while rowing to activate the magnetic system, this is great as you don't need to use electricity from the mains, and you can train with your rower wherever you want. The resistance consists of a magnetic brake connected to the tension lever on the front unit through a cable. 8 distinct levels are available. On the lowest tension level, you work out only via the rotating force provided by the flywheel; it's light resistance, great for anyone who needs recovery training. However, by pressing the lever down, the magnetic brake moves closer to the internal flywheel and increases the rowing difficulty; the 8th tension level adds difficulty for a more intense cardio workout. The drive system integrates the inner rotating flywheel and the transmission. The first one weighs 4 kg and has a perimeter-weighted design that improves the rowing motion's stability and consistency. The second is belt-powered, which means you don't ever have to lubricate it. And, since the magnetic brake elements do not touch the flywheel, the operation of the machine is whisper quiet.

- The Circuit Fitness AMZ-979RW Foldable Magnetic rowing Machine comes with a small, user-friendly console, which is battery-powered and requires two AA (1.5 V) batteries and displays the standard stats of calories burned, distance, time, total stroke count, and rpm. It is straightforward to use, featuring only three buttons – MODE, SET, and RESET. The MODE button allows you to select the metrics you always want to view; the SET button will enable you to create workout goals for time, count, distance, and calories; finally, the RESET button clears all the values to zero. When you select one of the metrics as an objective, the unit will display the remaining value until you reach your goal. The console also has a SCAN mode that rotates all the metrics showing each one for 6 seconds, allowing you to track all the metrics simultaneously and monitor your progress. Also, after 4 minutes of inactivity on the machine, the LCD goes automatically into sleep mode to save the batteries. It could happen from time to time when you need to set up your phone or tablet placed on the devise holder located above the LCD to hear music, view your favourite shows during rowing sessions or use a more advanced fitness app. To wake it up and carry on, press MODE or start rowing.
