What We Don’t Like About The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW1410 Rowing Machine with Full-Motion Arms

There are of course a few things which are not all that impressive about the Sunny Health & Fitness Rowing Machine. So, what don’t we like about it?

While the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW1410 Rowing Machine with Full-Motion Arms does have a solid steel frame, the max user weight limit is only 220 pounds. This is comparatively low when looking at other rowers in the same price range. At the same time, the fairly small size of this rowing machine does make it ideal only for smaller people. However, even though it is small, it still doesn’t fold up or stand on its end for storage, so it somehow manages to use up a decent amount of space none the less.

We noticed that the rowing arms on the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW1410 Rowing Machine with Full-Motion Arms are very wide and far apart. This is something that some people may not like because it is more taxing on the shoulders and chest.
