Skandika Regatta Rowing Machine Review

By | May 9, 2015

We choose to do the Skandika Regatta rowing machine review as we really want to give our honest opinion on it. To tell you how it will help you.

Today, there are so so many rowing machines to choose from. It is hard to work out which ones are great , good,  average or poor to own.

We will put it to you like this. Unless you are over 6 feet 3 inches then this one is in the great category.

With it being German in origin it is very well engineered. Being that their standards are so high.

For the rower with more experience, they will probably not receive the benefits that an amateur would do.

It is aimed at the novices as there are many more amateurs than there are experienced rowers.

The Pros Of The Skandika Regatta Rowing Machine

  • Skandika’s “vision” for you is to provide the “Very best gym equipment for the development of your body.” And with this model, we must say they have done just that. It, to us, is the perfect piece of gym equipment to get fit with.


  • Don’t you just hate it when your neighbours make noise. Especially regular noise. Well, this machine is brilliant at sorting out this problem. As it has a very quiet mechanism in it when you are doing the rowing. So there is no way in the world they will even know that you are exercising away.


  • The Skandika rowing machine will arrive extremely well packaged to ensure no damage is acquired during its transport.


  • It is very very easy to assemble also as they even provide the tools with which to do so.


  • It is very easy to say that this is a cardiovascular as well as muscle workout machine. As it very quickly gets you heart rate up as well. It also very quickly tires your legs and arms to the point of total exhaustion. Which we are sure you would agree is brilliant.


  • Because of the resistance that is given by this machine, it is a very good way of building up your strength. But, not only will it build your strength. Not only this, it burns calories, which as we know by now, is just what you need to lose weight.

The Cons Of The Skandika Regatta Rowing Machine

  • Because of the internet, we are able to write the review for you to read. Saving you the time to have to go through them all yourselves.


  • The instructions are in German. So you need to look for an internet connection where you visit their site. And then find them and translate. This could be a pain we suppose, if there is no internet connection to close to you.


  • Also, the maximum weight is 110 kilograms which at the time was not mentioned on the Amazon site.

Most people are saying that it is a very good strength workout. However, they are all going for a “great way to do a cardio workout”. This is what is required to lose weight so that is why we are all on this piece of equipment.

The features it possesses are as follows –

  • Low noise pulling system.
  • The handles can be in different positions.
  • A training computer.
  • It folds too.

Final Thoughts

As with this rowing machine,  we are reviewing items that fold away. The size is 130 x 45 x 95 cm, so as not to clutter up your rooms at all. You can easily store it away out of sight.

We all know how annoying bad to look at it is. Having something that you can see, that is completely out of place in our day to day living.

However, the main thing that was the decider for us is how quiet it is, which just has to be a bonus if you have neighbors in close to you.

The training computer is great for letting you be aware of how you are doing. Hence, your improvements can be written down. And we must not forget the handles. These you will use to both row in and to move it.

Mark – 10/10

    Thank you for this informative post, Simon! 😀
    I’ve heard that rowing machines are one of the best equipment for cardiovascular benefits and the one you have mentioned in this post seems to be a very good one! Does this come in other colors?
    Also, I feel it is awesome because of it’s low noise poly-fibre pulling system.
    This a definitely something people should buy.
    Thank you so much for the review!

    Great website. A real help to people seeking to be healthy. My first thought was that I did not see an offer for a Juicer. If you carried a Juicer it would be a natural to purchase while reading about the benefits of juicing. Buyers like a one stop shop place. Much success!
