If you work full-time, then you must know how challenging it can be to squeeze in a full-body workout during the day. That's where rowing machines come in: While commonly mistaken as an upper-body exercise machine, rowers actually work your legs and core, too. And now's your chance to join in on the fun –– without the boat and oars, of course –– because Amazon's Cyber Week sale includes a deal on the Fitness Reality Magnetic Rowing Machine.

The rowing machine has adjustable foot straps, anti-slip foot pedals, and a foam grip bar that's comfortable to hold onto stroke after stroke. It doesn't matter if you're a rowing novice or pro, because the machine has 14 levels of resistance that are ready to challenge anytype of user. And in case you are looking for an upper-body focus, it doubles as a cable machine, so you can work your arms and shoulders while standing next to the machine. After each workout, track and follow your progress using the MyCloudFitness app. (

You don't have to worry about disturbing others with your workout thanks to the quiet nylon belt system, and with access to hundreds of on-demand rowing, cycling, and yoga classes, you'll never get bored. (The machine comes with a 30-day trial of MyCloudFitness; it's $15/month afterwards). Plus, it's foldable, taking up less than 8 square feet of floor space when folded.

"I've had this rower now for almost three weeks and I LOVE everything about it," an Amazon shopper wrote in their review. "I have as much fun on it as the rowers at the gym… I'm in okay shape and the level six right now offers plenty of resistance to get my heart rate up. It's quiet enough that I can watch videos while I'm on it, and the CloudFitness app has been working great for me so far. I would absolutely recommend this rower over any other magnetic rower. I am so happy I found and purchased this.".

Amazon shoppers also enjoyed the easy setup process, which includes numbered parts. "It took about 30 minutes to put together, and I'm no expert," one said.

Originally $325, the Fitness Reality Magnetic Rowing Machine is on sale for $279 during Amazon's Cyber Week sale.
