If you're looking for good value for money and a solid brand for a rowing machine, look no further than the Schwinn Crewmaster Rowing Machine. Possess a steel frame and nylon strap for a smooth, even, and pretty quiet rowing experience. 

The Crewmaster has adjustable resistance, allowing you to select the resistance level, and then every time you row, you'll be getting the same consistent resistance level set. If you want to increase the intensity, simply turn the dial located in front. There are 10 levels of resistance to select. 

If working out on a constant intensity level gets boring, spice your workout up with different workout styles such as HIIT or lower endurance workouts. 

Sporting a well-sized LCD display, keeping abreast of all your standard workout metrics has never been easier from time, count, distance, strokes, calories, recovery, and pulse. The metrics are pretty basic.

It does not offer Bluetooth connectivity or access to fitness apps or immersive workout options, but then again for this price point that's completely understandable. 

The Crewmaster is an elegant, durable, smooth rower offering the standard features inherent in a rower, brought to you by a high-quality brand and at a very affordable price.
