    I have had this rower for a week now and it has been working great. The first rower I bought (a different brand of rower) broke down after 15 min of use, but the Stamina Body Glider is well built and very easy to use. The instruction booklet is very clear. It only took a few minutes to put the machine together.

    The amount of resistance is adjustable and the machine is very quiet. The only noise you hear is from the shock absorber type device which provides the resistance. It looks and feels like a more expensive piece of equipment, but provides the same type of workout that those higher priced models provide. Relatively lightweight, the Stamina Body Glider comes in at around 35lbs. The light weight makes it easy to move the machine around. I am thoroughly satisfied with this machine so far and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a rower.

    PROS:
    a. Real rowing (oar-like) action, rather than just pulling on a single T-bar.
    b. Comfortable even with tall people (I’m 6’1′).
    c. Adjustable rowing tension.
    d. A very sturdy, rigid, and well-built frame.
    e. Easy to assemble.
    f. Takes little room to use.
    g. Very low cost (one hundred twenty dollars).

    CONS:
    a. The seat is not well padded.
    b. The unit creaks and squeaks a bit until it is warmed-up.
    c. No instructions explaining how to actually row properly. (I found some great videos and info on the Web, however, that instruct as to how to use rowing machines).

    You simply cannot beat this Stamina Body Trac Rowing Machine at this very low cost — it is an amazing deal!

    I bought this machine after quite a bit of research into various rowing machines. I am not a rower. My goal is to lose weight and get a good aerobic exerciser. I did not care too much whether the machine approximated actual rowing. I was looking for a rower that was smooth and challenging. This one fills the ticket for a VERY REASONABLE price. (Most rowers are $500 and up.)

    Packaging

    The Trac Glider comes in pieces that you have to assemble. Be careful that you don’t lose any parts, because I did not get any extra screws or pieces in my package. The machine is fairly simple to put together. It only took about 15 minutes.

    The Machine

    I noticed immediately that the materials for the rower are pretty solid. However, I found the plastic for the monitor to be pretty flimsy but serving their purpose. Another quality issue is the nylon and velcro foot straps that may break over time. My feet slip into the foot stirrups easily but if the straps aren’t tight they can and do slip out occasionally. The monitor conveniently measures time, estimated calories, and number of rows. You can set it to scan through this information while you are rowing so that you don’t have to stop to change what is shown. The monitor also cuts on and off automatically, saving power.

    The rower was not silent. When I first got it, it squeeked fiercely. But a few squirts of WD40 and the annoying noise was taken care of. The pistons hiss and the seat rolls back and forth making a sound similar to what a skateboard makes.

    The seat is cushioned. This is very important for anyone wanting to row for long aerobic workouts. The row arms move nicely…similar to an outrigger but not quite the same movement.

    I am six feet tall and immensely pleased that I chose the Body Trac Glider because it has a longer track than most rowers. I am able to extend my legs fully with each row and my arms can go through a full range of motion with this machine.

    Storage

    The arms fold underneath the track and the machine stands on its ‘head’ for storage. I live in a small condominium and need that space. The design is quite effective. The monitor is not touching the ground as it appears to be in the picture. The T-style ends make a 3 point stand when tilted up.

    On the whole, I don’t think anyone could find a better rowing machine than this anywhere near this price. It provides an effective workout and is made of sturdy material. This is a five star machine. I considered 4 stars only because I wish the monitor was made of better materials. –But, I would have bought this even if it didn’t have any monitor.

    I usually find the reviews to be really helpful here and have never felt compelled to complain about a product but this machine is just too big for me. I’m 5’4″ and wear a 7 1/2 shoe, my feet absolutely will not stay in the pedals. My knees felt stressed and painful after using the machine for a few minutes and my knee constantly hit the middle track. No matter what I do I cannot seem to get this machine to work well with mw.

    My husband is taller, 5’11”, and it seems to be fine for him but if your a smaller woman I do not suggest getting this machine.

    I put this together as soon as it came, well with the help of my husband!!!! very easy to put together, he had it up and running in 20 mins. it came with its own tools to put together, the main part of this machine was already together, you mainly put together the seat, pedals and arms. The seat is soft which is a plus I think, it has a digital meter to track the calories you burn, keeps time, keeps track of how much rowing you have done. You can adjust the setting from easies to hardest. So far we love this machine, we have been using the stamina from the moment it got here a week ago, the entire family that is, let you know in a month from now how is going……
