Kettler 7978-900 Favorit Rowing Machine Review

It seems there is no lack of numbers on the Kettler 7978-900 Favorit Rowing Machine but there is a lack of one vowel. But minor nitpicks and joking aside, this particular rowing machine comes from a manufacturer with a good reputation within the fitness industry, and they can back it up with years of experience. The brand has been able to make indoor bikes and elliptical trainers made for the low to mid-range markets. Now, you can add rowing machines to that growing list of products. For this rower, it is a pretty solid machine, but it is suitable for people who will use it during short bursts only.

The Kettler 7978-900 Favorit Rowing Machine is Good for Short Periods of Time

Why is the Kettler 7978-900 Favorit Rowing Machine good for short bursts only? Why not longer workout sessions? This is because, and just like many other budget-friendly models out there, it uses hydraulic resistance. What happens is that the intensity of the resistance will suddenly drop when the oil within the cylinders will warm up. Hence, this is very inconvenient if you’re in the middle of an intensive workout. Just picture this – you’re already bringing your A game in the workout and suddenly you feel that the machine is giving you a lot of ease with each stroke. In other words, this won’t give you the best fitness results that you’re aiming for.

But if you’re the type that does want to get a good rowing session done during short bursts, then this might be part of your wish list. Moving forward, the Kettler 7978-900 Favorit Rower feels quite durable despite its rather compact nature. The seat is also pretty comfy, but not so much if you’re on the larger size. But then again, if you’re serious about getting fit, then this kind of problem will go away over time.

When talking about its rowing position, it is, once again, quite comfortable. But it won’t cater to anyone’s height because if you’re over 6-feet tall, then you might find the track to be a bit on the short side. If you are, then the space will be a bit cramp for you to do a full row, and once again, you wouldn’t get the most out of your workout.

Overall, the Kettler 7978-900 Favorit Rowing Machine is a good purchase for anyone who is new to rowing machines, or if you’re unfit and you need to make gentle strides to a healthier body. Perhaps you can make the most out of using this machine for 15-minutes at a time before the oil within the cylinders will heat up.
