What We Like About The Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower
The Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower comes with some pretty neat features which we absolutely need to mention.
The fact that the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower is a fair amount longer and higher up off the ground than other mid range rowing machine models makes it an ideal choice for taller people. Rowing very close to the ground can be uncomfortable, especially if you are tall, this rowing machine gets rid of that problem thanks to its increased height. Moreover, many of the rowing machines we talked about before are not ideal for tall people, a problem which this fairly long rowing machine also helps to solve.
Although the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower is larger than most others out there, it does have a saving grace in terms of its footprint. The Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower can fold in half in order to take up less space when not in use. This is excellent if you have a smaller home and want to put your rowing machine away when you are not using it.
The multi-function performance monitor is another thing about the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower which we really like. It allows you to accurately track various fitness metrics such as speed, distance, stroke rate, calories burned, and much more. Keeping track of how well your rowing sessions go is something which the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower allows you to do with ease.
We do like the dynamic wind resistance which the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower employs. The wind resistance is self-regulating, which means that you don’t have to manually adjust it. If you want more of a challenge, simply row harder, and vice versa. It’s as easy as that.
Finally, we like the fact that the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower is designed with comfort in mind. The oversized chromed steel bar with easy glide wheels allows for a smooth rowing experience. Moreover, the seat is made with comfortable foam padding to keep your backside feeling great. Also, the handlebars are designed to be ergonomically friendly while also providing you with superior gripping abilities. You will definitely not be uncomfortable when using the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower.
What We Don’t Like About The Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower
So, now that we have said what we like about the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower, let’s quickly mention a few drawbacks which it comes with too.
Its size may make it ideal for larger people, but in terms of space, it does use up a fair amount while in use. You are going to need a fairly large space to use the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower comfortably.
We’ve already mentioned several times that some people do not like the fact that air resistance rowing machines are usually not adjustable in terms of how much resistance is provided. This is a problem that also applies to the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower.
Alternatives To The Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower
Let’s do a quick comparison now so you can have some perspective on how the Stamina 35-1405 ATS Air Rower differs from some other mid range models.
You can look at it this way, the Stamina 1405 Rowing Machine is like the larger, fancier, stronger, more durable, and overall upgraded version of the Stamina ATS 1399 and the Stamina X. The price difference obviously reflects these upgrades. Simply put, the Stamina 1405 ATS Air Rower is stronger, bigger, made of more durable materials, and is a little more comfortable than these other Stamina Air Rowers. If you want a great mid range rowing machine, all Stamina models will do, but the 1405 ATS model is technically the most advanced one.
Some people prefer magnetic resistance and some air resistance. If you prefer the magnetic kind, then the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5515 Magnetic Rowing Machine is the one you want to go with. Comparatively speaking, the Sunny Health & Fitness model does have some more value than the 1405 ATS, mainly because it can do mostly all of the same things as the 1405 ATS, but is not nearly as expensive. Their comfort and convenience levels are fairly close, except that the Stamina 1405 ATS is quite a bit bigger, not to mention that they are both durable too.
