Echelon rower: Was £1,199, now £949,

Whether you’re looking to dip your toes into rowing for the first time or you’re a seasoned pro, this is the ideal machine.

It featured in our review of the best rowing machines with our writer noting that what “sets this ergo apart from the pack is its connected rowing experience, which turns your phone or tablet into your performance monitor, via an app”.

The membership starts at £24.99 per month, and you’ll have access to “hundreds of classes for all levels and desired outcomes, with up to five live classes every day”. And, along with the £250 off the machine itself, Echelon is also giving you a free 30-day membership thrown in, and free delivery; equating to a whopping saving of £389.

Our writer also praised it for being “a real joy to row” and a “quality machine with straightforward assembly and resistance coming from a magnetic flywheel, providing 32 very smooth levels”.

As for its standout features? It has to be the “resistance or damper control, which is increased or decreased using two red buttons in the handle, so it’s easy to adjust mid-row without disrupting your stroke”.

Finally, it’s been made with easy storage in mind – “with a simple action you can hinge the rail of the machine to fold it up, so it doesn’t take over a whole room” – making it ideal if you are low on space. Use the code “BLACKFRIDAY” at checkout to benefit from the whopping discount.
