NordicTrack RW900 rowing machine

https://www.nordictrack.com/rowing-m...r+%5BRowers%5D

Does anyone have this rowing machine or has tried one? If the listing I found is for real, I found an amazing deal on one! My biggest question is can you still get all your workout stats like distance, time, spm etc if you don't pay for the iFit subscription? I have a very basic low end orbital arm rower but I so want a better one! Thanks!

You should be able to. It's a little different from my rower in that mine doesn't have a built-in screen. But even with this, you should be able to select manual workout.

I'll be honest--if you really don't want iFit, I'd look for one without a built-in screen. It seems that's how the rower is controlled and fixing it could be a giant pain. Mine has its own control/console that works without a tablet and is therefore easy to use without iFit.

It's kind of like getting a Peloton bike and then not using the workouts--that's what the bike/screen are designed for, you know?

Thanks, Pratima! What you said makes sense.

I'm also pretty convinced there's smthg fishy with the listing. I can't believe a steal like that has sat there for 22 days!
