The Infiniti R99 Rowing machine is a great choice for anyone either looking to upgrade to a better quality rower, or for someone looking to buy their first and is looking to buy one around the middle of the price range.
Usually retailing for around £500 the Infiniti R99 comes with a range of features to help improve your rowing experience and to choose this as your next rowing machine.
There are adjustable air vents to help keep you cool when rowing as the air created by the fan powered by your rowing resistance passes through, a built in heart rate receiver for when you are wearing a heart rate monitor and an easy to use display unit that shows everything you would need to monitor your rowing session.
As with most modern rowing machines, the Infiniti R99 also folds away to take up minimum space when in storage or not in use.
The length of the main stroke bar makes the Infiniti R99 perfect for even very tall users, whilst not sacrificing on stability or comfort.

The computer behind the display can store data for up to 4 individuals (sex, height & weight) allowing you to quickly get started. The computer screen is really clear & is in 4 colours green / yellow and blue / white, but there is a large amount of information displayed which may take a bit of getting used to, and the display unit itself can be a little tricky to get used to setting all the different modes and settings it has built in.
With the importance of monitoring your heart rate, it will probably be necessary for someone buying this rower to buy a heart rate monitor watch or chest strap so that the heart rate can be displayed and you know that you are staying in the optimum heart rate range for your age and ability.
The Infiniti R99 is a great choice for anyone looking for a serious rowing machine that offers comfort.
It can be easily folded away to take up less space when not being used and does have some nice features for monitoring your performance on the display, but would be better if it came with some more detailed instructions for both the setup and using the computerised display.
