Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5515 Magnetic Rowing Machine

The earlier version from Sunny that we tried in 2014 was low priced and quite basic which had its own limits. So now when we have this magnetic rower with us we do not have much expectation from the same brand. But after using it for one week we can say that the magnetic machine is sort of okay. The rowing positions are pretty awesome. The seat that comes is not comfortable but the foam cushion will make it bearable. As we all know by the name that it is a magnetic rower that means it uses magnets that are placed over the flywheel to stop the pull on the handles. The main advantage is that this model makes less sound than any other air machine. Now let’s take a complete review of the product and know its main features, pros and cons


The resistance type: This health and fitness magnetic rowing machine comes with a magnetic resistance. It means that it uses its magnet to create the resistance. This magnetic rower is different from water, air, and the hydraulic piston in which they give a silent row with a realistic and smooth motion. The machine has 8 various resistance levels. These levels can be fixed by switching the knob to the central panel. Beginners can choose the easiest level one and level 8 gives a serious athlete workout.

The control panel:

The rowing machine has a large LCD control panel. The monitor displays the data in the format as:


Total count



The monitor has the capacity to scan the data every second. This is battery operated and you do not have to worry about getting an electrical fitting. Just understand that if you burn 200 calories in one session and 400 calories in the next then the second session was better for weight reduction. Other than that the display is quite simple and straightforward.

Building quality:

The machine is made of heavy steel and comes with a good build quality. The product is said to be very sturdy for its cost. This means that it does not have the same quality like a $950 rower but will not breakdown soon. The handle of the rower is attached by a nylon strap to prevent fraying and helps in getting a smooth stroke. The machine is very quiet and doesn’t have any squeaking noises.

Convenience and comfort:

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5515 Magnetic Rowing Machine has a comfortable seat and non slippery grip for best comfort. The foot pedals are quite large and any shoe size can fit into it. It has an adjustable strap to ensure that your foot is in place while you workout. Does not matter how roughly you use the rover it is stable and comfortable.


The machine is easy to fold and store. It can be folded in just 30 seconds and anyone can store it in no time. You just have to unscrew one bolt, fold it up and store it properly. This can be stored in a closet or in the store room.

Weight capacity:

The weight of the machine is 250 lbs. the seat is long and can accommodate any user. The machine is not for you if you are taller than 6 feet 6 inches.


The rowing machine is very easy to assemble. You can see that it is one of the best instruction systems. It has only four steps for assembling and every step has a bag with the parts required. You just have to use the proper bag and assemble it according to the instructions mentioned. The tools are included in it. Users can assemble it in less than 20 minutes. The flywheel is completely assembled only the seat rail requires assembling.

Consumer feedback:

The consumers are very happy and satisfied with the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-RW5515 Magnetic Rowing Machine. There are no major complains as such. The only thing people say is it lacks advanced functions in the display. They liked the strong resistance that is provided by the system and extremely comfortable and noiseless. Anyone looking for a budget friendly rower can definitely opt for this as it has all the necessary features you will need to work out.
