Compared this rower with three other brands and am so glad I decided on the Bodycraft VR400. After some health issues I am just beginning to get back into an exercise routine and did not feel comfortable joining a gym. I like that the VR400 has many different levels and programs that I can grow into. The wide, comfortable seat and smooth glide help keep me on a daily routine. I am hoping to add another piece of Bodycraft equipment to my home gym soon!

Our elliptical from another company needed another repair, and my local dealer offered a trade-in on the VR400 rower. We wanted to try a different type of conditioning equipment, and a rower seemed to make sense. I had only used one years ago at a gym, and we read many comparison reviews between the Bodycraft product and the competitor’s products.

It helped that Bodycraft was the product my dealer sold, but after all of the reviews, I felt comfortable going forward with the trade in. I picked it up already assembled, and it was easy to get in/out of a Honda Pilot – easy enough for my wife and I to carry it into the house.

I have used it a few times this first week, and I love this rower! It lives up to all of the positive things I reviewed before the purchase – extremely smooth motion of the pull / seat. It is quiet and I really like the display – I’d rather have this display than a large OLED that would add another $500 to the price. I can monitor all of the needed information for my workout, and I like that it is adjustable. I also like the manual resistance adjustment – coming from an elliptical that had motors that went out on us twice. I would highly recommend this rower for anyone looking to add to their home gym.

This is our first rower, and we love it! It was pretty easy to assemble, and it is easy to collapse when not in use. I would highly recommend it for first timers.

Just assembled my rower yesterday and had my first full run this morning and what a smooth ride along with an incredible workout. So thankful that our local equipment dealer steered us into purchasing this rower…it is truly a work of art!!!!

Looking to shed weight with low impact equipment. The VR400 has suited me well. Folds away nicely and easy to setup. Well worth the money spent.
