1215 Orbital Rower with Free Motion Arms 35-1215 by Stamina Products
Stamina Products - 1215 Orbital Rower with Free Motion Arms 35-1215
The Stamina 1215 Rower has full range-of-motion rowing for a truer rowing motion that mimics rowing on the water with a padded seat that glides on a ball bearing roller system, rowing arms with adjustable resistance, and foam grips that keep hands stable and comfortable.
Rowing is widely known to be one of the best all-around activities for cardiovascular fitness and strength. Rowing is a total body workout that is efficient, effective, low-impact and utilizes all major muscle groups including the back, legs, arms, abdominals and buttocks. It is one of the best exercises for building a strong back, as well as one of the most effective low-impact aerobic exercises for increasing your metabolism for more efficient calorie and fat burning without the impact on your joints.
The 1215 Orbital Rower is compact and portable, with a footprint of only 32.5" x 48" and weight of 47 pounds, yet is well-made for years of strength and aerobic training. The multifunctional fitness monitor keeps you motivated and on track to reach your fitness goals showing speed, distance, time, stroke count, and calories burned during your workout.
The continuous, non-impact movement of rowing can be broken down into three phases: the starting point is called the catch phase, followed by the drive phase, the finish, and recovery.
In the catch phase, knees are bent with shins vertical and shoulders and arms reaching forward. This phase mimics the point where the oars are being placed in the water. The drive phase is initiated by the legs. As they extend, arms remain straight until the knees are mostly extended, then the elbows flex bringing the oar handles into the upper stomach.
In the finish, the legs are fully extended, shoulders are back, elbows are flexed, and the oar handle is against the upper stomach. For the recovery, the knees don't flex until after the hands pass over knees as the arms and shoulders reach forward to begin Catch Phase again.
Because rowing is an impact-free activity, it can be a lifelong form of exercise. It is always best to exercise in your target heart rate zone (70% to 85% of your maximum heart rate).

What Are These Warnings That I’m Seeing?
You may have noticed the following warning or a similar one associated with Stamina products and with other products purchased from other manufacturers and distributors.
WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
This warning is appearing now because of a California law passed in 1986. You will hear it called Proposition 65, but its formal name is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act.
Proposition 65 requires warnings to be placed on product packaging or on the products that contain any of the 800 plus chemicals considered by the California Air Resources Board to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. Since the law was passed, California has added chemicals to and deleted chemicals from the list. Many of the elements listed are common everyday items.
Any company that operates in California, sells products in California, or manufactures or distributes products that may be sold in California is subject to complying with Proposition 65 requirements.
Stamina Products is proactively including the warning to meet the Proposition 65 requirements. There are penalties for not complying with Proposition 65, and failure to include the warning may result in a civil penalty of $2500 per day.
The warning used is one that is considered to comply with Proposition 65 consumer warning requirements.
Proposition 65 – Frequently Asked Questions
What is California Proposition 65?
Proposition 65, formally known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, is a California law passed in 1986. Proposition 65 requires California to keep a list of chemicals known to state regulators to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. Since 1986, California has added chemicals to the list but also deleted chemicals from the list after additional review. Today the Proposition 65 chemical list has grown to include approximately 800 different chemicals, including some chemicals contained in everyday products.
Who enforces Proposition 65?
Proposition 65 is enforced by the California Attorney General's Office and district and city attorneys. Proposition 65 lawsuits can also be brought by private attorneys seeking civil penalties, injunctive relief, and attorney fees.
What is a Proposition 65 warning?
Warnings are placed on products distributed in California that contain a listed chemical. A warning must be given for listed chemicals if exposure poses a “significant risk” of cancer or is above a level observed to cause birth defects or reproductive harm. For chemicals listed as causing cancer, the “significant risk level” means an individual would have a greater than one in 100,000 chance of developing cancer if exposed to the chemical over a 70-year lifetime. For chemicals listed as causing birth defects or reproductive harm, the level of exposure is that which has been shown to pose harm to humans or laboratory animals.
Why don’t all distributors of exercise equipment provide warnings on their products?
Stamina Products cannot control what their competitors do, but they can make sure that their products comply with the requirements of Proposition 65. Stamina Products has not changed their products to add listed chemicals. Stamina is proactively applying the warning label to meet Proposition 65 requirements, as the number of private attorney lawsuits increases and litigation becomes more costly.
Why are all products labeled instead of only those that are sold in California?
Stamina's products are distributed nationwide. It would be very difficult and costly to determine which products will ultimately be bought, sold, or brought into California. Therefore, to be sure that they are in compliance with Proposition 65 requirements, they are including the warning with all of their products.
