Proteus PAR-5500 Commercial Club Series Rowing Machine Review

The Proteus PAR-5500 Commercial Club Series Rowing Machine comes from a brand that is being distributed by HCI Fitness, and they are also known for marketing the famous, and reputable, H2O Ftiness line of fluid rowing machines. Albeit being dubbed as a commercial-grade rower, it is packed with many features that even many homeowners might be interested with it. It is also made out of durable materials, such as “aircraft-grade extruded aluminum” for its rail. This means that it will last quite a bit. But does it really deserve to be advertised for the commercial market? Well, truth be told, you’re not going to be too convinced.

The Proteus PAR-5500 Commercial Club Series Rowing Machine is Better Suited for Residential Users

Whenever you advertise a rowing machine for the commercial market, like the Proteus PAR-5500 Commercial Club Series Rowing Machine,  will raise some expectations, and there are those that would hope all of the claims are real. But when you think  a rowing machine in a gym is going to be used by a bunch of people, and for multiple hours in a day, then you would have to assume that it has a tough build quality. On that note, this particular rower can achieve that. The build quality is top-notch, and it can survive being used by many, even on a single day.

Setting the Proteus PAR-5500 Commercial Club Series Rower up is a bit of a challenge as compared to other, simpler models, but it is not that difficult to achieve. This is because there are some parts that require being pre-fitted. However, and just like about every other rowing machine out there, you would only have to do it once and never bother with it ever again.

When it comes to the seat, it is an unusual sort since it has a horizontal ribbed design. It does bring a good level of comfort, but there are many that can do even better. Nevertheless, even if you’re rowing for 30-minutes straight, you wouldn’t find yourself complaining that you want (or need) to get off of the machine to do a bit of stretch.

Despite being heavy on features found on the Proteus PAR-5500 Commercial Club Series Rowing Machine, they are more designed to go inside a home rather than a gym. The main reason being it brings offerings that are just like your average rowing machine that you can bring home.
