Both of its rowers come with dual air and magnetic resistance, which offers a smooth workout without sacrificing torque or power. Aviron’s commercial grade whisper nylon belt operates at 60 decibels, which is around conversational volume, so you don’t have to worry about the machines making too much noise.
Additionally, its 22-inch HD touchscreen makes it easy to watch videos or play games. Aviron’s membership grants users access to a large catalog of games, competitions, and virtual environments. You can play while you work out and track your progress against other users to see how you compare.
Aviron Rower Review
With a rowing machine, you can get an intense workout without putting too much stress on your body. If you’re looking for a full-body workout that’s low-impact, then read on to learn about Aviron’s two rowing machines, the Impact Series Rower and the Tough Series Rower.
Aviron Tough Series Rower Review
The Tough Series Rower is a reinforced rower designed for strength and durability. Although it does not fold, it’s still fairly easy to store thanks to its two front wheels.
The Tough Series Rower is equipped with a WiFi and Bluetooth compatible 22-inch HD touchscreen and offers 16 levels of resistance. Along with adjustable foot pads, it’s capable of adjusting to different hip and leg widths. If you need additional back support, you can purchase and attach Aviron’s lumbar support kit ($249), an optional add-on that ensures you get more back support for a safer and more satisfying workout.
With its commercial grade bearings, double-width rollers, and lower frame, the Tough Series Rower is designed with longevity and heavy use in mind. Presently, you can get this durable machine for $2,499.
Aviron Impact Series Rower Review
The Impact Series Rower is a lightweight rower that’s still designed to be tough. It’s also super easy to store thanks to its four wheels and patented folding structure, which allows it to stand upright without wall mounts or home modifications.
Like the Tough Series Rower, it comes with a 22-inch HD touchscreen that’s WiFi and Bluetooth compatible. While it’s not designed to support Aviron’s lumbar support kit, it features adjustable food pads that can fit any shoe size. With 16 levels of resistance, the dual air and magnetic resistance system on the Impact Series Rower gives you a smooth workout without sacrificing torque or power.
Capable of fitting inside your office or any home gym, the Impact Series Rower is a sturdy foldable rowing machine. That said, it doesn’t come cheap, with a starting price of $2,199.
To get the most out of your Aviron machine, you’ll want to purchase its membership program. With an Aviron membership, you get access to a catalog that includes hundreds of games, challenges, and content.
A personal membership gets you unlimited access to all challenges, the latest updates, and a comprehensive profile so you can connect with Aviron’s network of players. Meanwhile, its commercial membership is designed for facility use and gets you access to additional commercial settings and equipment metrics. Only one membership is needed for each machine, regardless of the number of users.
Through its membership, you can play games, complete challenges, and undertake guided programs to motivate you while you work out. You can add friends within Aviron’s network and challenge them to competitions, and Aviron will organize your workouts, metrics, and achievements into easy-to-read graphs so you can keep track of your progress.
Pricing & Special Offers
You can purchase an Aviron rowing machine directly through its website or from a third-party retailer. However, if you sign up for Aviron’s email list, you can get $50 off your first order. Additionally, Aviron is currently covering shipping costs and taxes if you order either of its rowing machines through its website.
Compared to its competitors, Aviron’s rowing machines are rather expensive. The price of an Aviron membership is also rather steep, especially when you consider that it doesn’t include any instructor-led classes. That said, Aviron’s machines are comfortable and well made, and its smart capabilities and entertaining catalog of games and competitions make it one of the most fun and unique rowing experiences available.
