The Row GX™ Trainer is perfect for a low-impact, total-body workout at home. It uses Fluid Technology resistance to deliver a smooth and natural feel. The Row GX accommodates the whole family and delivers premium club quality performance from the convenience of your home. 

LIFE FITNESS ROW GX TRAINER 

I was able to demo the Life Fitness Row GX trainer at a local Planet Fitness in my area. The natural feel is a unique water fluid technology that offers 16 resistance levels which is the widest range of any rower on the market. The pulley is nylon with a slightly angled ergonomic handle for less stress on hands/wrist. The console computer is Bluetooth enabled for heart rate monitoring but does lack the iOS app compatibility. The computer displays the rowing dynamics which include time, distance, heart rate, strokes per minute and 500-meter split times. These units are extremely durable due to the model design being used in high-traffic fitness gyms and are well known for toughness and long-term use for premium performance at all times. There is a water like feel with the addition of these added fluid variable technology resistance and very simple to switch between the resistance levels. The unit weighs about 130 lbs and even with that amount of weight is very compact, easy to move and store upright in your home. The Life Fitness Row GX trainer is very expensive at $2,219, double its competitors, it has the 16 adjustable levels of water resistance.  I don’t feel that it’s worth the 2x higher ticket price as it lacks the iOS App technology.
