The Stamina Avari Programmable Magnetic Exercise Rower is one of the most dependable rowers you can buy. Designed to help boost your fitness level, there are 12 workout programs available, and 6 profiles are cardio-based. There is a manual option as well as 4 customizable user programs and a special heartrate program that’s meant to help you boost your stamina.
Stamina Avari Features and Specs

- Fitness monitor

- Maximum user weight of 275-lb

Easy to transport, the Avari folds up and can be moved to your desired location. Light yet durable, you won’t need help moving this rower from one room of the house to the other. Sitting down for the first time, you’ll notice that the ergonomic seat is comfortable and that the handlebar is padded in foam for added comfort.
The footrests have a comfortable strapping mechanism and are wide enough to fit most user’s feet. One of the best features of this rower that many other models don’t offer is the pivoting footrests. This slight pivot allows you to row in a natural form and provides more power when rowing.
As you perform your catch and release, the aluminum extended rowing beam keeps friction to a minimum and allows for smooth rowing.
The monitor is completely touchscreen and displays all of your vital statistics, including:
- Calories burned
- Resistance level
- Strokes per minute
A single tap up or down will rise or lower the magnetic resistance. If you want to change between the 12 programs, you’ll do so right on the LCD monitor without having to get off of the rower. The following program options are available:
- 6 cardio profiles
- 4 programmable profiles
- 1 manual profile
- 1 heart rate profile
Included is a heart rate monitor that goes around your chest to monitor your heart rate. This is far more accurate than hand sensors seen on many models, and provides an accurate assessment of your current heart rate at all times.
You’ll be able to lose weight, build stamina and gain lean muscle mass all on one rower.
- 12 program profiles to lose weight and build stamina
- Easy to transport with wheels included
- Accurate heart rate monitoring
- Adequate resistance levels for all fitness levels
- Difficult to keep arms extended when going forward
For some reason, when you’re gliding forward, you’ll find that keeping your arms straight out in front of you is difficult. Many users noticed this strange occurrence, and I am really not sure that you can do anything about it aside from holding the bar to your chest through the catch and release.
The Stamina Avari is a high-quality machine that is priced just right. It’s smooth and quiet while being easy to assemble and transport. The 12 built-in programs provide immense workout variance, while the built-in monitor provides all of the data you need to stay on top of your workout at all times. I do believe that magentic rowing machines tend to make the best rowing machines for use at home and the stamina avari is no exception.
