The Frame & Construction 

Yosuda H-187 Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine

The Yosuda H-187 Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine is equipped with an anti-corrosion powder coated 4mm thickened steel frame, except for the dual slide rail that is made of aluminum. Thus, it supports up to a maximum user weight capacity of 350 lbs./158.7 kg.  

It also supports up to 52’’ inseam length. Therefore, users that are up to 6’6’’ tall can utilize the rowing machine.  

The robust widened steel stabilizers with adjustable levelers guarantee improved stability during workouts.  

Due to the slide rail that is 10 degrees angled, users will experience quick motion recovery that puts more resistance to the legs.

The assembled dimensions are 74.8’’ long by 19’’ wide by 31.5’’ high. So, a workout area with measurements of 6’23’’ (190 cm) in length by 1’53’’ (48.26 cm) in width will be required. Plus, additional clearance of at least 2’ on both sides and the rear for safety and convenient workout purposes.  

The unit is foldable; hence, it will take up little space for storage and it can easily be rolled away via the front-mounted transport wheels.  

The folded dimensions are 28.7’’ long by 19’’ wide by 51.2’’ high. Storage area with measurements of 2’3’’ (72.89 cm) in length by 1’58’’ (48.26 cm) in width will just be fine. So, the rowing machine can fit nicely in the corner of the room.  

The rowing machine’s weight is less than 76 lbs./34.47 kg and the floor-to-seat height is 12’’.  

The Seat of the Yosuda H-187 Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine  

The seat of the Yosuda H-187 Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine

The seat on this rower is a different design from the one on the YOSUDO 100 Rower. It has a molded padded elastic seat that is ergonomically designed with 5 layers of foam for maximum comfort.  

It has 2 durable big rollers on each side that are attached to the dual aluminum slide rail. Its back-and-forth motion is smooth, quiet, and stable. Thus, you will be able to train longer without feeling sore or bored. 

As aforementioned, the slide rail supports up to 52” inseam length. Therefore, suitable for users that are up to 6’6’’ tall.   

The Handlebar 

The handlebar is ergonomically designed, and slightly curvy. It is coated with an anti-sweat soft rubber foam material that keeps your palms/hands firm and comfortable during a prolonged workout session.  

A reinforced 1’’ nylon strap that is connected to the drive system is attached to it. This means that the strap is durable and tested, it won’t snap anytime soon.  

No heart rate sensors or control buttons are integrated into the handlebar.  

The Footrests 

The footrests are large and textured with heel guards and Velcro safety adjustable straps.  

They can accommodate different shoe sizes securely and comfortably.  

Since they pivot, they will always adhere to the movement of your feet thereby reducing or even eliminating ankle stress that may otherwise occur.  

The pedals are each made of durable plastic with a metallic core, and a steel stopper underneath that keeps them in a 40-degree position.  

The Resistance System 

The resistance control knob of the Yosuda H-187 Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine

The Yosuda H-187 Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine features a magnetic resistance system with neodymium magnetic brake pads.  

The resistance system also comprises a 12 lbs./5.44 kg high inertia flywheel to which the magnetic brake pads release dynamic magnetic fields to create friction-free resistance.  

In other words, the internal parts are not affected by wear and tear as resistance is generated and the rowing machine’s operation remains smooth, quiet, and stable regardless of the resistance level being used at any given time.  

The rowing machine’s noise level is <25 dB. Hence, exercising around family members or neighbors living in close proximity won’t be a problem.  

There are 16 adjustable resistance levels for warm-up, muscle group toning, weight loss, and improvement of strength and stamina. They are suitable for everyone that wishes to improve their overall physical fitness or well-being.  

The Console 

The console of the Yosuda H-187 Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine

The console is basic, and it features a non-backlit LCD monitor that tracks workout stats such as Time, Count, Total Count, SPM (Stroke Per Minute), and Calories. These metrics are not displayed simultaneously, instead, the SCAN function displays them one at a time.  

Although, you will be able to set a certain workout stat of your choice to display constantly if you so wish.  

The navigation buttons that include Reset, Mode, and Set are easy to use.  

The Mode button enables you to turn on the monitor and to select a specific mode, the Set button enables you to set value for Time & Calories, and the Reset button allows you to reset Time and Calories.  

It is easy to read and understand the display as long as it is being viewed in a well-lit environment, otherwise, it will be difficult to discern because it lacks a backlight.  

The console is not Bluetooth enabled; thus, it doesn’t connect to any workout app like the Bluefin Fitness Blade 2.0 Rowing Machine does.  

The monitor is powered by 2 AAA batteries (included), and it automatically turns off when there is no activity on the rower for 4 minutes, and it turns on again once activity returns.  


The YOSUDA Pro Magnetic Rowing Machine has a built-in tablet holder on the console and a water bottle holder that is positioned below the resistance control knob.  

Hence, users can entertain and hydrate themselves during a workout session.  


The unit is foldable and has transport wheels at the front base. Therefore, it could be stored in a corner of the room and could easily be moved around the room.  

The folding process is simple and quick. Simply unscrew the knob that holds the front drive system and the rail, raise the rail, and screw the knob back again to hold the rail in place.
