I will start by saying that in comparison to the rowing machines before this one. Well, Sunny has made this one is far better despite its low price too.

These rowing machines like most other types. They are very good at focussing on all of the major muscle groups in a good workout session. Moreover, that then means, with the good cardiovascular workout this machine provides you. You can use it to lose weight as well as get in shape!
Granted it will not suit the more experienced rower at all. As they will notice that it does not perform as it should. Mainly, because they have been using far more expensive rowers than this one. However, for newbies and rowing novices it is more than good. It is good enough to lose weight if used on a regular basis.

Our Final Words On The Sunny Health And Fitness Rower
My final words of this machine lead me to only one thing. If you are working off a small budget and cannot afford one of the more expensive rowing machines. Then this Sunny Health and Fitness rower surely will suit you very well because of its price. For just what it is, you get a quiet rowing machine. With the features that you need to track your performance and improvements.
I mean let us face it, it is on wheels so what better way to move it about. And place it out of the way/view and getting it out when you are going to be working out. This has to be a big bonus through anybody’s eyes.
The seat problem does really not seem one to me. As you can just fold up a towel to sit on or even get a piece of foam from somewhere. And and then you fix the problem. In fact, most of these cons, to me, are just individual problems. They do not reflect the overall value for money that you will be getting when you purchase this rowing machine.
The SF-RW5515 (Sunny Health And Fitness Rower)
No, the SF-RW5515 is absolutely going to be of a lesser quality to a lot more expensive rowers. It is only a third of the price of them so, really, what do you expect.
I think that if you are very serious about your health and wish to improve it. Then you should try to go for a better and more expensive rowing machine than this one. That way there can be nothing bad said of the rowing machine. But for those starting their long journey, this is an excellent choice indeed.
The price of this rowing machine is cheap. It is well worth the spending of the money.
Often Asked Questions
Does the SF-RW5515 offer leg resistance as well as arm exercise?
Yes, it does although that would depend on the technique that you use. You need to “push off” with your legs first before using the arms. This way you will start to see improvements in your legs.
How big is the rowing machine when folded up?
When the rower folds, it is around 5 feet high. And takes up about 4 feet of floor space, that is all.
How does the Sunny health and fitness rower compare to the likes of the Concept2 rowers?
Well, to be honest, it does/can not compare to the concept2 and so on. It lacks the durability and quality of these much more costly rowers, but you definitely need to expect this.
I am under 5 foot will that be a problem?
No, it will not be a problem at all. The “stride” (action) the rowing machine allows means that it will be OK!
I have carpet on my floors will the rowing machine still work correctly?
Of course, yes it will. It works on both smooth and hardwood floors.
How high will the seat be off the ground, will it be low-down?
No, it is not too high and not too low. It will be around 12 inches (1 foot) from the ground.
