Everybody knows that JTX is one of the leading workout equipment manufacturers. Their rowing machine, the JTX Freedom Air is one of the top units you might want to pick if you need a rower. If you need a home-based workout machine and you don’t have a space for a large machine, this can be the right pick for you.
To help you decide if you will be getting the machine, here is a review to help you further.
The JTX Freedom Air comes with a sturdy design, which can handle plus-size users as well. Well, not the excessively heavy users, though. Its ergonomic design allows you to enjoy the best while getting the most of the machine. Using this unit is a walk in the park, and you can be confident of a stable unit when working with this rower. It comes with a long warranty cover that proves just how reliable it is.
- Size and Build
We have to start with the size and construction of the rower because that is what you will notice first when you see it. This one is made of a reinforced aluminum frame that assures you of stable rowing experience.
The rower measures 225cm by 58cm by 86cm when fully assembled. Luckily, it is foldable to let you store it away when you are not using it. When folded, the machine measures 112cm by 58cm by 160cm. In other words, it will be reduced in length but an increase in height. This monster weighs 36.5kgs, which is on the heavy side. However, moving it around shouldn’t be an issue because it comes with transport wheels for easy mobility.
By the way, this machine can support a maximum user weight of 130kg.
This is a strong air rowing machine that assures you of gym-quality strength and endurance training. Plus, it features DualTorque airflow and electromagnetic resistance. If you combine the two, you can be sure of an intense workout session.
Whether you are a professional or an amateur, Freedom Air will suit you accordingly. The reason for this is that the rowing machine comes with 16 levels of resistance. This way, you can choose the resistance level that perfectly suits you. Even if you want an extremely intense workout session, this machine will let you do that without a problem.
Now, this is one of the top rowing machines that come with the most advanced console. Forget about the small LCD screens on most rowers out there. While other rower machines offer only details of your workout stats, this one goes a step further.
This rower comes with an innovative console. Along with the 16 resistance levels, you get 8 training programs to get you going. With this, you can be confident of an advanced and personalized workout session.
There are also some heart-rate controlled programs, which is not a common feature you’ll find in most rowers out there. If you want, you can use a wireless chest strap when working with this little beast. However, this strap is sold separately.
You can use this monitor to track your covered distance, revolutions, split time, heart rate, speed, calories burned, and more. All these are displayed in the stylish blue screen monitor. Controlling it is also easy for anyone, even a beginner.
