Building Good Credit in Every Stage of Life 

Posted by Alexandria on February 27, 2022

There are a few pieces of financial advice that every person should strive to follow: save your money whenever possible, pay down large sums of debt, and (perhaps most importantly) keep your credit score high. In today’s economy, credit is a critical element of financial health. You need it in order to secure loans for anything from buying a car or home to even starting your own business. But how exactly does a person with no credit build credit?

Get on With the Important Things in Life

All good credit scores have to start somewhere — and one of those places is right here at RC Willey. Whether you are just starting out in your financial journey or are looking to increase your current score even more, our payment plans offer a variety of great options that are suitable for any budget. With an RC Willey Payment Plan, you’ll have all the benefits of low interest rates, low monthly payments, and optional Credit Protection Insurance. Plus, with our Online Bill Pay and the option of paperless statements, you can be confident in having 24-hour access to your secure account at all times.

The Benefits of Your RC Willey Payment Plan

There are three types of payment plans you can join at RC Willey, each with their own unique set of benefits.

The Premier Payment Plan is a perfect way for you to build credit on your own terms. With no hidden fees or prepayment penalties, you can control when and how you pay for your purchase. This payment plan also comes with low minimum monthly payments and a simple fixed interest rate of 9% APR, so you’ll always know exactly how much you’re paying each month.

RC Willey Payment Plan The 0% interest payment plan is exactly what it sounds like. No down payment is necessary upon sign up, and you will have monthly minimum payments for either a 12 or 18-month financing period. However, if you pay more than the minimum, you could pay off the entire balance by the end of the finance period WITHOUT having to pay any interest. If you’re looking for a simple, low-risk solution to building credit, this is the right plan for you.

If you are new to financing and either have low credit or no credit at all, you may qualify for RC Willey’s Bright Start Payment Plan. This plan comes with a credit line of up to $500 and is the perfect way to put you on the right path to building (or rebuilding) your credit. Plus, as you continue to make payments on time, you will eventually be able to upgrade to one of our Premier Plan or 0% Interest Plans. Think of it as a gateway to a healthier financial future.

Surround Sound vs Soundbars. Which is Best for You?

Posted by Alexandria on January 31, 2022

The new trend of releasing blockbuster movies simultaneously in both theaters and on streaming services means that the living room needs to replicate big-screen acoustics for the optimal viewing experience. Navigating through the hundreds of options for home audio systems can be daunting. Never fear — this post will help you pick between two of the most common types of personal speaker systems. Read on to learn more about soundbars and surround-sound home theater speakers (as well as how you can pick between them!).

iLive 5.1 Home Theater System with Bluetooth

Knowing the Difference Between Soundbars and Surround Sound

For many years, 5.1 surround sound set the standard for high-quality audio. The “five” in the “5.1” referred to the five speakers that surrounded the room or central point for listening. The “point one” signified the accompanying subwoofer. Now, it is becoming more common to create 7.1 or even 9.2 setups for full, immersive viewing experiences at home. Most surround sound speakers will need a separate component called a “receiver” to manage inputs and connect to televisions and entertainment centers, but most of these home theater systems are sold in sets, like the Yamaha – 5.1-Channel 4K Home Theater Speaker System with Powered Subwoofer. 

There is a science to getting to the the optimal multi-speaker layout in your home. Here are some of the typical components of a surround sound system to keep in mind when arranging your home viewing space.

  • Center channel speaker: The center channel speaker is primarily used to transmit spoken dialogue or music. This speaker should be placed directly in front of the primary listening area.
  • Left/right channel speakers: The left/right channel speakers should be placed at the very front of your setup since most movie soundtracks and sound effects route through these units. Experts recommend that these speakers be spaced 60 degrees from the listening center as a result.
  • Subwoofer: The subwoofer handles all the low-frequency sounds. Its position is not as critical as frequencies lower than 120 Hz are difficult to hear anyways, but it’s usually placed to the left or right of your TV.
  • Left/right surround speakers: The side or rear surround speakers assist the front left/right channels with additional ambient sounds and directional effects that create a rich soundscape. In a 5.1 setup, these speakers should be placed 100-120 degrees from the center channel. 

In contrast to surround sound systems, sound bars are an all-in-one sound solution. Housed in a single, compact device, sound bars are made up of a cluster of small speakers carefully arranged to mimic a traditional 5.1 audio setup. Products like the Sonos Arc Soundbar bounce audio waves to create an immersive three-dimensional listening effect without the need for multiple speakers placed around a room. Most sound bars are also Bluetooth compatible so a wide variety of devices can be linked up to them. Sound bars should be placed directly in front of the listening center and about 5-15 inches (13-38 cm) below your TV. 

One thing to keep in mind is that sound bars do not have the ability to adequately produce low-frequency sounds. Because of this, they are often sold in sets with a subwoofer like the Klipsch Cinema 600W 3.1-Channel Soundbar System.

Comparing Surround Sound and Soundbars

Both sound bars and home theater surround sound systems work well in a wide variety of room sizes. Knowing which system to invest in really depends on how powerful (also known as the wattage) you want your speakers to be. In general, a pair of 100-watt speakers fills a 500-square foot room perfectly. Depending on your room size, a surround sound system might be overkill. In these cases, a good sound bar instead of a full surround sound system may be all you need.

In general, the average price for a sound bar is less than the average price for a home theater surround sound system. Sound bars typically only include one or two devices, while home theaters have upwards of six to nine components plus the stands or mounts needed to set speakers on. Also, installation fees can inflate the cost, depending on how difficult your system is to set up. Basic sound bars start at about $100 while most surround sound systems usually begin at $500. However, high-end systems for both sound bars and home theaters can easily get into the thousands of dollars.  Floorstanding Speaker in Home Theater System

For the less technical, sound bars have the clear advantage over home theater systems. Most sound bars are “plug-and-play” — meaning once you take it out of the box, connect one wire to your TV, and plug it into an outlet, you’re good to go. In contrast, home theaters can be extremely complex to install with some systems requiring carpentry skills (or the hiring of experts) to set up properly.

Even though home theater surround sound systems are much more difficult to get up and going, they have a huge advantage with their customization ability. The sheer variety of speaker sets available can transform the look of your room. You can install speakers in your wall, mount them on a wall, or just have them on a floor stand. Plus, surround sound systems allow you to have technical control over your sound. Don’t you hate how some movies have quiet dialogue with overly loud action sequences? With a surround sound system, you can adjust the volume levels of specific speakers to redesign your listening experience.

Here’s a handy table that breaks down how surround sound systems and sound bars respectively perform in a variety of categories.

  Soundbars Home Theater Surround Sound
Sound quality High-end soundbars can duplicate 5.1 surround sound effects, but not to the same degree as home theater setups. Although soundbars produce extremely high quality sound, the full immersion surround sound provides can’t be beat.
Ease of use The simplicity of having an all-in-one sound system makes installation and troubleshooting a breeze. You might need an expert to teach you how to install and use your sound system, which can get frustrating and costly to deal with.
Customization Soundbars can connect to a wide variety of devices via Bluetooth. For an additional cost, you can also connect more speakers, like a subwoofer, to enhance the base bar. Multiple speakers and a dedicated audio receiver means you can completely redesign how music and movies sound with a few clicks of a button.
Price Even though soundbars can get really pricey, in general they are much more budget-friendly than home theater surround sound systems. The increased cost of home theater surround sound is due to the large amount of components you must buy to make it work.

Both soundbars and home theater surround sound systems have pros and cons and deciding which one is best for you boils down to which system you think will work best in your space. To see what RC Willey has in stock, check out soundbars and surround sound systems at your nearest location today.

 
Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Posted by Alexandria on January 24, 2022

Love is in the air — and so is a new season of gift giving. As we approach Valentine’s Day in 2022, show your loved ones how much you care by treating them to one (or all) of these 9 best Valentine’s Day gift ideas. Whether you’re shopping for a romantic partner, family member, or simply looking to buy yourself something special, these items will have anyone (even the biggest Valentine’s Day haters) ready to feel the love this February. 

Romantic Valentine’s Day Gifts For Her 

If you’re struggling to figure out what to get the special lady in your life this Valentine’s Day that isn’t your stereotypical flowers and chocolate, look no further. Whether she swoons over romantic displays of affection or prefers practical items for everyday use, these gift ideas will give you the inspiration you need to treat your girlfriend or wife like the queen she really is. 

Finding the right words to express your feelings to your female significant other can be difficult, especially when classic movie lines like Jerry Maguire’s You complete me or Noah Calhoun’s “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird have already set her expectations through the roof. How are you supposed to compete with that? The answer: you can’t, but you can get one of these romantic wall displays to do it for you. With a sign reading Above all things, love” hanging in her living room, she’ll be reminded every day just how much you care. Choose from a variety of heartfelt love-letters that will complement any home’s interior. From simple, yet powerful statements like I love you to the moon and back” to more elaborate sentiments, these wall decor items are bound to win over the heart of any hopeless romantic.  I Love You To The Moon and Back as 9 Best Gifts for Valentine's Day
Multi Color Faux Lilly Arrangement as 9 Best Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day As far as Valentine’s Day gifts go, flowers are a safe last-minute option you can always rely on to deliver (both literally and figuratively). But if you really want to woo your lady this year, don’t just buy her any old flowers from the grocery store — get her something that will last from this selection of unique floral arrangements and house plants. Instead of the standard bouquet of red roses that every woman receives on Valentine’s Day, you can buy your partner a Multi-Color Faux Calla Lily Arrangement to match her colorful personality. Or, if you’re both rom-com fans, try out your own rendition of the “love fern” in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days with this Artificial Green Fern Arrangement (but don’t worry, this one won’t die like the fern in the movie).
If sappy poems and long-stemmed roses aren’t your Valentine’s cup of tea, try getting her something she’ll actually use like new kitchenware that will make cooking dates even more enjoyable for the both of you. Maybe your significant other has been hinting at wanting a new KitchenAid Mixer or Pasta Roller Set, or maybe you’ve noticed she’s in need of new cutlery or cookware. Whatever the case may be, this is your chance to get your significant other something she’s always wanted, but could never justify buying for herself. Treat her to something luxurious and high tech like the Brazilian Flame Rotisserie Grill with 5 Skewers and Upper Tray or buy her something simple that you know she’ll get a lot of use out of like the Wolf Gourmet 2-Slot Toaster. These small kitchen appliances offer a variety of practical gift options that are bound to please your loved one more than any giant teddy bear or box of chocolates ever could. 2 Slot Toaster as 9 Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Thoughtful Valentine’s Day Gifts For Him

When it comes to Valentine’s Day shopping for men, you want to pick a present that’s meaningful, thoughtful, and personal — but not overtly cheesy. This list of gift ideas treads that line perfectly with options that range from entertainment and style to ultimate comfort that will accommodate all of your boyfriend or husband’s unique interests. 

Letsfit Smart Watch as 9 Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas Everyone loves to be spoiled on Valentine’s Day, and that certainly includes the special man in your life. This upcoming holiday, remind your partner how valuable the time you spend together is by getting him a new watch to count down all of life’s precious moments with you. Whether he’s a classic guy who appreciates timeless styles like the Galaxy 46mm Watch4 Classic or prefers a more modern design like the Letsfit IW1 Smart Watch, these watches are bound to bring a smile to your significant other’s face and show him how much you care. Plus, if it’s a new relationship and you don’t want to commit to a full timepiece just yet, you can always opt for a watch strap like the Samsung Black Ridge Sport Band instead. 
It may seem obvious, but the secret to giving good gifts is to pay attention to what the person receiving them actually likes. For instance, if your boyfriend or husband loves playing video games in his spare time, you have all the information you need to get him the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. Depending on whether he’s a PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo user, consider getting your significant other new gaming equipment like the JBL Quantum ONE Gaming Headphones or Elite Wireless Controller for the upcoming holiday. Or if you really want to go all out, surprise him with a gaming gift he’ll never take for granted like the 1UP X-Men 4 Player Arcade Machine Arcade 1UP as 9 Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas
Suavage Power Recliner as 9 Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For some guys, no fancy device or piece of clothing can beat an evening of comfort and relaxation — which is exactly what these recliners bring to the table. This Valentine’s Day, give your man the gift of uninterrupted leisure time with a new piece of furniture like the Amaretto Leather Power Recliner to call his very own. If he’s a fan of going to the movie theater (but isn’t able to because of COVID-19 or other reasons), you can bring the cinema experience to him with the Cinema Brown Power Home Theater Recliner. Or for the man who has everything, consider this Sauvage Charcoal Gray Power Recliner with Power Headrest that’s perfect for watching a movie, reading a book, or even settling in for a nice afternoon nap. 

Valentine’s Day Gifts For Singles 

Roses are red, violets are blue, here are some Valentine’s Day gifts that are just meant for you! Even if you find yourself without a romantic partner this upcoming holiday, that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate a little self-love. Treat yourself to these indulgent gifts and create the ultimate night of relaxation this February 14th — no Valentine necessary. 

If there’s one thing that’s bound to help make Valentine’s Day feel less like Single’s Awareness Day, it’s a good ol’ movie marathon in the comfort of your own home. But instead of just relying on your own collection of DVDs or Netflix’s sizeable (yet limited) catalog, get access to all of your favorite rom-coms and chick flicks this upcoming holiday by gifting yourself a new media streaming gadget. Use devices like the Roku Streaming Stick 4K and Apple TV 4K 32GB to turn your regular living room television into a smart TV that can play anything you tell it to. And with affordable options like the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite, you can relish in knowing you’re saving money while everyone else is out spending it on expensive dates. Apple TV as 9 Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas
Faux Wolf Fur Blanket as 9 Best Valentine's Day Gift Ideas Of course, if you decide to stay in on Valentine’s Day, you may as well be comfortable in the process. Luckily, nothing says comfort quite like this selection of soft goods. If you’re looking for a statement piece for your living room that also doubles as a fuzzy shoulder to cry on when you’re feeling particularly lonely, this 18 Inch Navy Blue Throw Pillow may be just what you need. Or for those who want something a little more luxurious, this Gray-Toned Faux Wolf Fur Throw paired with a Black Faux Fur Chinchilla Throw Pillow offers the ultimate lounging experience that will leave you feeling like royalty. 
No night in on Valentine’s Day is complete without a little mood lighting — and this assortment of candles is sure to do the trick. As you settle in for an evening of self-care, let these Refresh Eucalyptus and Mint Aromatherapy and Lemon and Ginger Aromatherapy Candles transport your senses to a place of tranquility and relaxation. With unforgettable scents like the Lemongrass and Lime Aromatherapy and Magnolia Home Furniture Garden Glass Candles, you can bring a spa-like experience directly into your home.

How to Arrange Sofas and Loveseats

Posted by Alexandria on January 21, 2022

Best Ways to Arrange a Sofa and a Loveseat

Love is in the air and sprinkling some of its special flavor into your living room decor could be just the right amount of je ne sais quoi to make Valentine’s Day date night extra special. Sofas and loveseats are both perfect for cuddling, but understanding how to arrange them when decorating can be a challenge. That’s why we put together this handy guide of things to consider when arranging sofas and loveseats.

Know the Difference Between a Sofa and Loveseat

Although loveseats and sofas have a lot of similar characteristics, they do differ in a few key features. Knowing how to tell the difference between a loveseat and sofa could be key to improving your living room’s functionality and aesthetic appeal.

The biggest difference between the two pieces is size. Sofas typically come in a multiplicity of styles and shapes. They often have extra features like recliners built into the frame. In contrast, loveseats stay true to the images their names conjure and remain ideal for two people. Smaller and more compact, loveseats can fit into tight areas, but lack the bells and whistles of their larger sofa cousins

Size-wise, standard loveseats typically run about 60 inches long. Compare that with the average sofa, which ranges between 75 to 91 inches, and you’ll quickly see just how noticeable that length difference is when indoors. For apartments or townhouses, a loveseat might be a better investment since it frees up walking space and could make your living area feel more open. However, if you plan on having the friends and family over regularly for Sunday-night football, adding a sofa with plenty of available seating could make more sense. Either way, you’ll get a spot to throw your feet up and relax in your significant other’s arms. Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a night binging TV shows.

Experiment with Arrangements

If you have the bandwidth, incorporating both a loveseat AND a sofa in the same space is an effective and highly popular way of arranging living room furniture. Since both sofas and loveseats are typically upholstered and have underlying wood frame constructions, you can often find matching sets at your local furniture store. Sets save you the hassle of mixing and matching pieces as they typically come with same-length seat heights and proportional sizing.

How to Arrange A Sofa and Loveseat in a Living Room

Buying multiples of the same furniture piece is also a good way to elevate your living room’s decor. Instead of purchasing a six-seater couch, buy three small loveseats and arrange them in a U-shaped pattern. This design not only provides more walking room, but it also looks strategically aligned and immediately gives your living space a clear focal point. 

Maximize Your Space

Loveseats and sofas can work in tandem to define nebulous living spaces and traffic flows. If your floor plan has an open space between the living room and your dining area, a strategically placed loveseat can create a border that delineates where guests should eat versus where they should sit and socialize. To reinforce this separation, consider buying a large rug that expands to the edges of your sofa and loveseat. Accent rugs are also good items for dividing larger spaces into smaller, functionally defined areas. 

Here are some additional ideas for maximizing space with a sofa and loveseat set:

These ideas — along with many others — can help make your living room a curated place of relaxation, socialization, and entertainment.

Know Your Room’s Purpose

Of course, loveseats and sofas don’t just have to be confined to living rooms. Bedrooms, sitting rooms, and home offices also benefit from these designated sitting places. Thinking critically about the purpose of your space can help narrow down furniture options. For example, a sofa may make more sense for a “Netflix and chill” room since it allows for more lounge space and different sitting positions. Alternatively, a loveseat can be a nice addition to a master bedroom set as a napping spot or reading chair.

Sofas and loveseats also differ in the number of cushions each has, which is another attribute to take into consideration when thinking about the purpose of your soon-to-be decorated space. Loveseats typically have 1 to 2 cushions whereas sofas can range from an average of 2 to 4. Similarly, couch cushions are typically longer and plusher than their loveseat compatriots. For longer movie watching experiences or mid-afternoon catnaps, a sofa would work better. 

However, if you envision your room as a place for conversation and light drinks, a sofa and loveseat combination may make a better alternative. Placing two coffee tables in the middle of your seating arrangement lengthens the room and provides easy access to guests with cups or plates. Another idea is to add accent chairs in a U-shape, which is great for facilitating conversation. 

Identify Focal Points

Finally, identifying a clear focal point in your living room ties all your decor and furniture together in a purposeful way. In a room with a fireplace, the hearth is an obvious focal point. Arranging a loveseat perpendicular to the fireplace highlights its design while offering a warm and intimate place for sitting. If you don’t’ have a fireplace, a window serves as a nice focal point, particularly if two loveseats fan out from it in an L shape. Ideally, you’ll want to place your sofa or loveseat roughly 10 ft from the focal point in question. This opens your space up and allows for more walking room.

For rooms without obvious focal points, you can arrange your furniture and decor to create an artificial one. Placing a sofa parallel to a loveseat (with both facing inward) and adding two lounge chairs on either side creates a square. Putting an ottoman or coffee table in the center draws visitors’ eyes and gives your room visual structure.

Ultimately, sofas and loveseats are excellent pieces for classing up any living room area and can be placed in a wide variety of arrangements. When decorating, it comes down to knowing your space’s purpose, accounting for movement, and creating a single focal point. Whatever formation and furniture combination you decide on, you can rest assured that Valentine’s Day — and your romantic night in — will feel homier than ever before.

The Home Office of My Dreams

Posted by Alexandria on January 20, 2022

IT WAS TIME.

I had been planning and rearranging our spare bedroom for a little over a year before I finally decided to create the home office of my dreams!

First off, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Reneze (pronounced like Denise with an “R”), and I run a travel and lifestyle blog by the name of Sincerely Reneze. I am a Las Vegas local, but I often find myself on a plane to somewhere at least once a month. I started blogging in June of 2020 and have been fortunate enough to grow a community of travel, food, and design lovers over the past year and a half. My goal as a brand is to inspire and encourage everyone to create a life they love – one that they never have to take a vacation from!

I have always believed in working in an environment that inspires and uplifts, and that sentiment is what drove me while redesigning my home office. I wanted to go with an evergreen design while keeping a modern twist. I started my decorating process with finding a desk, as it is the most vital part of the room. I needed something small and sleek, yet still functional. Looking through the RC Willey website, I immediately fell in love with the Walnut and Black Metal Mid-Century Modern Desk. The uniqueness of this piece still gets me today and it truly ties the room together very well.

My second goal was to create a relaxing space to encourage myself to take breaks throughout the day.  I decided I was going to have a lounge chair and a TV in the room. To keep up with the mid-century look, I chose a leather accent chair that is both comfortable and stylish. I also decided on the Samsung Smart Frame TV, and it has been one of my best decisions ever. Being able to switch between watching a show and my digital artwork of choice, the TV is great in this space.

The last thing I needed was a place I could store my stuff and a hint of “Vegas.” That’s when I decided to use a Dining Room Sideboard as an entertainment storage unit. The black and gold provided the perfect amount of “pop” and was an incredible addition to the office. I added a turntable and a faux plant to complete the mid-century aesthetic, and it was everything I have ever dreamed of!

RC Willey delivered a series of amazing products that made my home office a space that continuously inspires me and encourages me to get work done! Check out RCWilley.com to purchase these products for your home and don’t forget to follow me at SincerelyReneze.com while you’re at it!

Get Fit with NordicTrack

With every new year comes New Year’s Resolutions — many of which have to do with living a more active lifestyle. However, as we all know, these fitness goals can be difficult to reach, especially on those cold January mornings when the last thing you want to do is get out of bed and jog to the gym. So, how can you break this vicious cycle of setting goals only to give up on them three weeks into the New Year? 

The answer is simple: bring the gym directly into your home. NordicTrack — a recent partner of RC Willey that specializes in home exercise equipment — is the perfect solution for anyone looking to step up their fitness routine in 2022. Whether you’ve vowed to lose weight, do more cardio, or make exercise a part of your daily lifestyle, NordicTrack’s collection of treadmills, studio cycles, and rowing machines will give you the motivation you need to finally check this item off your New Year’s Resolutions list.

Getting into the habit of working out every day can be a daunting task all on its own. Then, when you factor in all the time and planning that goes into creating your own routine from scratch, it can seem virtually impossible. NordicTrack’s Commercial Treadmill Series takes these problems out of the equation by providing a variety of interactive, personalized training options that you can use in the comfort of your own home.

Tailor a workout experience that’s right for you by choosing from the new and standard Commercial 1750, 2450, and 2950 models. Each of these treadmills uses tread cushioning that allows you to soften impact on your joints with one setting and stimulate a real-road running experience with another. Plus, they are all equipped with iFit technology, a feature that gives you access to a library of over 16,000 on-demand workouts guided by a variety of world-class personal trainers.

Transport yourself into a room with Tennille Boseman as she leads one of her high-energy studio sessions or travel to a mountaintop with Rivers Puzey for a global workout you’ll never forget. Whether you’re a seasoned gym goer or just starting out on your fitness journey, these highly versatile treadmills can be adapted to fit anyone’s unique workout routine. 

Travel the World With NordicTrack’s Commercial Studio Cycles

If your resolutions include exercising and traveling more in 2022, NordicTrack’s series of Commercial Studio Cycles may cross more than one item off your list this year. Have you ever dreamed of cycling through the bustling streets of Japan, mountainous regions of Switzerland, or alongside fellow athletes in the beautiful scenery of the Tour De France? With NordicTrack’s S15i and new and standard S22i cycles, you can do all of that and more without even leaving the confines of your own home.

Use iFit virtual training sessions to transport yourself to new and exciting locations all while participating in electrifying workouts with some of the best personal trainers on the market. Each cycle’s flex frame simulates the real feel and movement of an outdoor cycle, helping to immerse you in once-in-a-lifetime cycling experiences. NordicTrack also uses expertly engineered flywheels with Silent Magnetic Resistance for a quieter, smoother ride. And as an added bonus, each cycle comes with a set of 3 Lb. dumbbells, giving you everything you need for the ultimate full-body workout. 

Elevate Your Workout To New Heights With NordicTrack’s Rowers

Not everyone can afford a rowboat and, if they did, live close enough to a body of water to use one. Luckily with NordicTrack’s Rower series, that’s no longer a problem.

Whether you’re looking to give your upper body a good workout or simply let off a little steam, the RW500 as well as the new and standard RW900 rowers are bound to offer a truly unforgettable exercise experience. Choose from the iFit library of training sessions to break up the monotony of your everyday routine. With the click of a button, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of some of the world’s greatest reservoirs directly from your living room.

NordicTrack’s dual resistance technology also creates a powerful combination of digital and air resistance to your rower, giving you a more substantial and immersive workout with every session. But if that workout starts to feel a little too immersive, rest assured that each rower’s quick-adjust footrests will keep you safe and secure at all times so you never have to compromise the intensity of your workouts.
