Stamina X Air Rowing Machine Review – Adjustable Foot Straps

Stamina x air rowing machine has more advantages than disadvantages to it. It is always a challenge for the manufacturers to make a product that is a hundred percent perfect. It is always a battle between maintaining a friendly price point and getting rid of all the imperfections. Nevertheless, Stamina is giving its best in this model, Stamina x air rowing machine.

Stamina X Air Rower

I bought it because we needed a durable machine that everyone in the family could use. Believe me when I say it has provisions to accommodate everyone. Do not see the simple design and rule the Stamina x air rowing machine out. There is more to this machine than the simple design. It is one of the best rowing machine I’ve experienced ever.


A LED display helps you monitor your workouts. The screen displays the strokes per minute and also shows the strokes count. To monitor our progress, you can store the data on another device for comparison. As much as the machine does not come with data storage function the display bit is incredible.

We can blame the lack of the data storage function to the affordability. It is not much of a deal breaker, Right? We can afford to call it a minute detail. After four minutes without any engagement, the display shuts to save on the battery.


To start with the very vital part, the rowing handles. The handles are padded to give the best comfortable grip. The seat also has foam padding, so you do not hurt your behind while working out.

The seat slides to accommodate people of all heights. The footrests on the Stamina x air rowing machine are wider allowing for comfortable pivoting. The foot rest has straps to secure your feet.

Space saving

You do not have to worry about the space consumption and portability of the Stamina x air rowing machine. Inbuilt wheels allow for easy moving about and around. It weighs 63 pounds hence you will not need much energy to move it. The frames are foldable to facilitate for easier storage. I just unfold to use and once done fold it up to get it out of the way.


The air resistance is sufficient to get incredible results in burning calories. Depending on the power that you put in the row you will be able to tell the calories you will burn by the end of the workout. I find people complaining that the machine does not come with a function to change the resistance.

That should not be a bother as the resistance changes with the intensity you apply. Resistance increases with intensity, the more the intensity, the higher the resulting resistance.


All the materials making the Stamina x air rowing machine make it a sturdy machine. Let’s start with the steel construction that will take 250 lbs of weight without breaking a sweat. Some models use fabric straps, but the Stamina x air rowing machine uses a metal chain.

To facilitate the movement of the seat, the manufacturer uses metal ball bearings. Logic says metal components are better than plastic components when it comes to durability.
