LifeCORE R100 Rowing Machines

LifeCORE Fitness Rowing Machines – Model R100

The R100 Rowing Machine delivers dependable performance and industrial grade quality. This rower can be used by all as it offers all of the great features and is easy to use.  It will keep you in shape with a little ‘time’ investment from yourself.
Note: The R100 uses batteries (4 C size) or can be plugged-in (AC Adaptor – included) to power the console.

For the ultimate in quality, performance and value, the LifeCORE R100 Rower tops the list. Similar machines (which are only found in commercial health clubs) cost five times as much and still don't have the features you'll get with R100 Rowers!

Performance Monitor

The R100 includes a two color LCD display.  The monitor has a many motivational programs to help motivate you during your workouts.  Great programs like ‘interval’ training, letting you set up distance and time intervals.  Standard programs that simulate resistance change.  Heart Rate Control programming that allows you to monitor your heart rate.  The computer will automatically adjust the resistance according to your heart rate level.  If it is too high, the rower will decrease resistance, if it is too low, the rower will increase resistance.  Readouts include: 500m time, total time, total strokes, strokes per minute, calories, speed, distance and pulse*
*Requires an optional chest strap – included with product.

Flywheel and Resistance (Air and Magnetic)

Our indoor rowers have a unique feature which combines air and magnetic resistance. The R100 rower is equipped with 16 levels of resistance and can be adjusted electronically directly on the computer.  The flywheel is also a fan which generates air as you pull.  The first level is all air resistance and then the magnetic resistance is engaged at level 2 and beyond. The flywheel design minimizes noise while maximizing a smooth feel.

Low Profile

The R100 sits 14.5” (36.83 cm) from the floor.

Storage and Mobility

The R100 features a quick release framelock mechanism, so you can easily fold the rower for storage. Built-in roller wheels on the front and rear feet allow you to roll the machine into position.

Adjustable Footrests and Ergonomic Handle

The footrests on the R100 are fully adjustable to foot size and are equipped with separate heel supports.  You can strap your feet in with the quick release, industrial grade nylon straps. (Footrests accommodate a wide range of shoe sizes.) Our comfortable, ergonomic handle features a 10 degree bend that allows you to row with a natural arm and hand position.

Belt Drive

The Lifecore Rowers feature a ‘Belt Drive’ instead of a chain.  Our philosophy is that a belt is quieter, no maintenance required, and reliable (same material as a car seat belt).

Aluminum Track

Our rower is equipped with a forged aluminum rail providing an industrial strength rail to ensure a smooth, gliding seat movement.

Durable Construction

Our machines are well-built, reliable, and durable. Tough and built to last, our machines withstand any type of workout, used by athletes, Military, Cross-Fit, hotels, etc. We make sure our machines are easy to maintain which gives you the most for your investment.

Club-Style Electronics

You'll love the advanced control center on the R100. A large, blue/green-backlit screen displays time, speed, distance, calories burned and more. While the simple touch of a button allows you to select from 19 pre-programmed workouts. You can even create your own custom workout with 16 different levels of magnetic resistance.

Ergonomic Design

For starters, the R100 is one of the lowest impact exercise machines on the market. You'll enjoy smooth, fluid motion without the stress on your knees and ankles. The ergonomic rowing handle provides a comfortable, efficient grip and the large foot beds secure your feet while simultaneously allowing your heels to move freely for more natural rowing motion.

Commercial-Quality Construction

The R100 rower machine is based on an extruded aluminum frame with solid steel support. So it has an ample 600-lb. capacity. The fan and flywheel are also constructed of solid steel for the ultimate in durability.

Warranty and Money Back Guarantee

The R100 is covered by our limited five year warranty on parts and console and moving parts. Our warranty also includes a 1 year labor period for in-home repairs.  View full warranty details. Your purchase is also covered by our 30-day, money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with your indoor rower for any reason, you may return it to us within 30 days of shipment, and we will refund the cost of the machine to you. All shipping costs are your responsibility. 

This offer applies to factory direct sales to our customers in the US and Canada only.

  1. awesome product


    I love my rower. It is an amazing workout and will continue to be amazing even as I become more fit. It is easy to set up and easy to use. I had an issue with the motor. Lifecore had the part overnighted to me and a tech there to fix it (even though it was an easy enough install that I could have done it myself). Quality product from a quality company. I highly recommend this to enough looking for a full body workout.

    We love our Rower, great workout, sturdy and has great flexibility with easy workout programs. This is a great machine for the home.

  3. Love it!


    It is one of those machines that I hate getting on, but know that it is so good for me. Once I am on it, it is smooth and easy to keep going, it's right up there with a runner's high.
    I would highly recommend this product as I usually do. My college gym has them and for the amount of use they get, they keep on going. There have been minor broken parts on them, but still easy fixes, which is why we invested in one for home.

  5. Great morning workout


    I love my rowing machine. I use it every single morning . It is the very first thing I do when I get up. The rowing gets my juices flowing!

  6. Great product


    I like this machine. I use it to warm up.
    My only complaint is with the display. I still don't know how to use it. But I can count the strokes and see the resistance and that is enough.

  7. Love it!


    I could not be more satisfied with this purchase! Easy assembly, quick storage. Engaging variety of workout options. Perfect addition to the other exercise devices in my home gym. This machine is undoubtedly a very effective X-training, cardio enhancing, year 'round addition that will assuredly help achieve any athletic goal any one may have. As an avid cyclist I love how it complements my training.

  8. Home fitness


    I purchased the R100 for my home fitness routine. I am a 50-something male with knee and joint problems that rule out running and other types of exercise that stress the joints. I receive a full body workout in 30 minutes that provides cardio, strength, and stretching while sparing my joints. Back and abs are stronger too. Works well as a home machine, very sturdy, smooth, and quiet. My only complaints are the foot rests are of lesser quality in comparison with the overall product's manufacture, I had blisters in the first week and continue to adjust the straps and supports and am still not comfortable. I also am concerned the seat glides will wear out soon, hope replacement is covered by the warranty.

  9. It is great for a non-rower


    I used this at the gym. Better than most, if not all, the rowing machines designed for the general public. But if you are a serious athlete you would be served better by the ergs manufactured for rowers.

    1. The display/programs are not oriented towards the serious rower.

    2. Although quieter, I am not a big fan of the magnetic resistance because unlike air/water resistance, it requires tinkering to get the best resistance for the intended piece. (In rowing, power output varies with velocity cubed which means a slight decrease in velocity is a large decrease in power output. If you go out a little hard or a little soft, your body will make the adjustment for you. The magnetic resistance makes this machine less forgiving.)

    (3. I'm also not thrilled by the foot placement, but it might just be from what I am used to)

    Notwithstanding, it is a great machine for the general public. Rowing gives you an excellent workout. And this machine is far better than most out there. It will challenge you and get you in great shape. I would recommend this machine to any of my non-rowing friends.

  10. Very Nice machine!


    I just received it and it took less than 1 hour to assemble taking my time. Very straight forward to assemble. After using a few times - the rower is very sturdy and does not sway or give at all. I can tell it is very solidly built. Believe me I have purchased equipment previously and can tell the difference. That is why I purchased this machine because of the weight capacity - especially since I weigh 300lbs. So far very pleased!

  11. Very Impressed!!


    I use my Rower twice a day. It's very well thought through [...]Workmanship and quality materials are what struck me immediately. The action is beyond smooth and it is absolutely quiet.I would highly recommend this product. You will not be disappointed!!

  12. Way beyond my expectations.......


    I've been using this machine for about a month now and all I can say is that this thing really gets your heart pumping. The presets are more than challenging and there's plenty of variable resistance to keep it interesting. It's quiet, smooth, all the things it claimed to be. About the only drawback is the size. This is a substantial machine, so I'd have to say make sure you have the space to set it up or store it, but aside from that I'd say by all means spend the few extra bucks and buy this rower.

  16. Feature Rich - Functionally Superior


    The flexibility of easy program selection keeps exercising interesting. Also, it means that all members of a household, no matter their age or condition, can get the exercise that's right for them. I really should have started rowing long ago, as it is easy and fun, while provding excellent exercise.

  17. Love this product!


    I did lots of research before selecting a rowing machine, and all the great reviews I read on the LifeCore R100 were right on!
    It was easy to assemble, and easy to use. I was also surprised at how quiet it is.
    Really like the wireless heart rate monitor too.

    -- Review by Cardio junkie
  18. Fantastic Value


    I've been plagued with back and shoulder issues for months. Since that time, I've been looking for a cardio and strength routine that I could do without worsening my aches and pains. The LifeCore Fitness R100 Rower is the answer. Since getting this machine I've used it 3-4 time a week and love it. If you keep form (this is important), I don't experience any pain and I get a great total body workout. The quality of the machine and the exceptional features make this a real value. I like the interval training and heartrate programming options. This will be a machine I use for years to come.

    -- Review by Mike get-in back in shape


    This rower is easy to assemble and even easier to use. Lots of motivating programs with choices to challenge any level of fitness. While it does take up some space for use, it is easy to fold and put away. This is much more entertaining than a treadmill and not the pounding on my joints. A well built machine. Looking forward to years of use, not to mention an awesome warranty to back it up.

  20. Nothing else compares


    When I finally found a vendor that carried this rowing machine, I realized that I wasted much time visiting other fitness equipment vendors who did not carry this machine. No other rowing machine that I have tried compares to the performance and durability of this rowing machine. Length wise, the machine may be a bit longer than its competitors, but it's the best for my 6ft 7inch frame. I have had this machine for 2 years and it still performs the same as new. Granted, the display had to be replaced soon after my purchase, but the manufacturer promptly replaced it free of charge and expeditiously. It is well worth the cost.

  21. awesome workout!


    We love, love, love our new LifeCORE rowing machine. It is such a fun and exhilerating way to exercise that we each stay on it longer than I ever thought we would. The work out is awesome. I remember my exercise physiology teacher saying that rowing and/or cross country skiing are the best ways to exercise. We love our LifeCORE rower more than a product that cost almost 4 times as much. The workout is smooth and really effective!!! Thank you for another excellent LifeCORE product. We also own a LifeCORE stationary bike. The rower is even more fun.

  22. Cardio at its best


    At 45 I've been a gym rat for years. I just purchased this rower and canceled my membership. this machine will give you the best cardio & full body workout in 30 min. My back & Lats have gotten ripped in 2 months. i use this machine every other day for 30 min. and it will kick your butt ( try 6000 meters in 30 min.) My opinion no other cardio machine comes close to the over all workout this rower gives.

    -- Review by Todd
  23. Good Machine


    I really like this rower. I originally got it just to pump up my upper body and build up some endurance but after using it for a few months I've really noticed the tone overall in my body.

    Good quality, easy to use, good price. I would recommend this rower.

  24. This is Great!


    This is great! I think I'll be able to get this going. Thanks for the manual. Great customer support,& especially for a dummy like me. I really like the bike. It has been great for me, a 58-yr-old former girl-jock who lives in Boulder and doesn't ski, so I need a winter home-sport.

  25. Love it


    This is a great rower. There are so many reviews out there about this rower and believe me, all the good things you hear about this are true. It's very high quality. It's easy to use and very smooth.

    If you are new to rowing but want to get into it I would highly recommend this rower.

  27. My LC-R100 rower review


    My LC-R100 rower is now about two years old and has held up very well against both very heavy usage and a heavy user. The fact that the rower is still steadily used is testimony to its construction and performance, and the results it produces. I have recently experienced the need for minor repairs and was very pleased with the ease and quickness of getting the replacement part. Thank you - it is a pleasure to deal with a company providing quality products and superior service. The only thing that gets to me is that the pacer boat never lets up - that guy is tough.

  28. Dear Lifecore,

    I had been looking for something to help me get in shape. I’ve done bikes, treadmills and elliptical machines in the past but I always got bored. Then I came across one of your LifeCore rowers at a friend’s house. I felt kind of silly, but I asked her if I could try it. I really liked the smooth motion and the awesome burn in both my legs and arms, so the next day I hopped on the web and purchased the R100. It’s the best piece of fitness equipment I’ve ever owned. I can use it for 15 minutes and it feels like I’ve done an hour on the treadmill. Plus it’s not boring since I’m always using my upper and lower body. Thanks again for making such a great machine!
