This rower has a strong steel frame that is sure to stand up to your most intense workouts. It has a 300 lb weight capacity that will accommodate a wide range of users. While is has a large footprint, like most rowing machines, Marcy has designed the Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine to be folded quickly so that you can get it out of the way when you’re not using it.

What We Love About the Marcy Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine:
The Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine has a few nice design features that we really like. First, Marcy has built a solid machine with a strong steel frame capable of supporting 300 lbs. That’s going to accommodate a lot of users. They also provide eight levels of magnetic resistance. The magnetic resistance is extremely quiet and provides a smooth rowing motion. With eight different levels, you’re sure to find the right intensity for your workout. The other design feature that we like is that it is foldable. This is a nice feature for rowers because they have such large footprints. However, the Marcy Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine folds up nicely so that you can get it out of the way quickly.
What Isn’t So Great:
The weakest aspect of the Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine is its console. Marcy has equipped this rowing machine with a very basic monitor. While exercising, you can track time, speed, distance and calories burned. There are no exercise programs loaded on the console and there is no ability to download or track your exercise statistics. Honestly, it’s a pretty common drawback for most rowing machines in this price range. You have to search hard through the competition to find a rower with this feature, but they are out there. If this is something that you’re interested in, take a look at our review of the XTERRA ERG400 Rower.
Final Word on the Marcy Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine:
The Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine is pretty typical for what you’ll find in a mid-range rowing machine. It’s well built, comes from a good manufacturer and doesn’t have a whole lot of bells and whistles. We like that it has a space-saving design and has eight different resistance settings to change your workout intensity. The Marcy Turbine Magnetic Rowing Machine is worth the price tag, but then again it doesn’t set itself apart from some of the other choices in this price range.
