Body Sculpture BR3010 Review Summary
Designed for the home user who wants to start improving their fitness, this is an entry-level rowing machine with added workout capabilities.
Very affordable, the Body Sculpture BR3010 Rower and Gym is primarily suited to those at the beginning of their fitness journeys and older people who just want one piece of home equipment to fulfil their exercise requirements.
Unlike most other rowing machines, the Body Sculpture uses resistance bands which lack the higher levels of resistance attributed to other rowing machines. This means that, with regular use, there will be a point where the user isn't challenged anymore.
For the elderly and the very beginners though, this machine comes in at an unbeatable price.
- Very low price. Good for those who've never tried a rowing machine before.
- Multi-functional. Can be used as a rower or an upper body workout with interchangeable handles.
- Low profile and foldable for easy storage. Suits smaller homes just as well as larger.
- Comes with an instructional workout DVD so you can get the most out of your time.
- Computer is very simplistic and not as accurate as others.
- Not suitable for those looking to train, compete or reach high fitness levels.
- May not be long enough for those over 6 foot tall.

Who would this rowing machine suit?
With moderately low resistance levels, this Body Sculpture rowing machine is designed for beginners, the elderly and those wanting a gentle introduction to home workouts. It's not for people who want to reach high levels of fitness and those would be better off going for a machine like the Concept 2, which enables infinite progression.
The Body Sculpture BR3010 Rower and Gym is great for those below 6 foot but those taller than that may find they can't reach full leg extension. For people of average height, this machine will be excellent.
What results can I expect from the Body Sculpture BR3010?
Rowing is a brilliant exercise for those who don't do regular exercise and have never done it before. Take it as slow as you like, get a full body workout all at once and as it's low impact, your joints, knees and back won't be compromised.
With the Body Sculpture mini computer, you can track calories burnt along with other info like stroke rate and time. After just ten minutes on this machine, you'll feel exhilarated and will soon start seeing improvements in strength and stamina.
Improve muscle tone and strength without breaking the bank
If you're not going for intense strength training then why should you spend almost a thousand pounds on a workout machine? For those who just want a gentle dose of full-body home workout, this machine is a bargain.
This machine can't be compared to the rowing machine greats like Concept 2 or WaterRower or even the more home-only Kettler Stroker because it serves a different demographic.
If you want a budget rowing machine that gives you the freedom to do effective and simple workouts at home - it doesn't get more of a bargain than this. It even comes with a workout DVD!
