SportsArt Plate Loaded Series combines quality and value in a simple, easy-to-use strength line designed to accommodate users of any fitness level or experience.


SportsArt A979 Plate Loaded Series Low Row Back Machine – The A979 Lever Low Row from SportsArt Fitness is a commercial plate loaded strength machine for upper body training featuring two arms with independent movement to target the muscles of the back during execution of the low row exercise and one-arm row. Two sets of handles offer a pronated grip (palms facing down) and neutral grip (palms facing each other) to target the latissimus dorsi muscles at different angles. The adjustable seat and fore/aft adjustable chest pad means a broad range of user heights and limb length can be accommodated. The A979 Plate Loaded Low Row Machine allows you to use Olympic plates with a 2″ center hole for resistance. Load your plates onto the angled weight horn on each lever rowing arm. The upward angle keeps plates safely in place during use. The A979 has a 500 pound maximum weight load rating for heavy duty back training. The welded heavy-duty steel frame has stylish, sleek lines and curves created through oval tube steel. Major frame pieces bolt together allowing easier transport prior to assembly. Electrostatic powder coating insures the finish is resistant to scratches and dings for a long term beautiful finish. Heavy-duty vinyl cushions are comfortable and durable for club use. Rubber non-skid feet cover base frame supports to avoid sliding of machine or scratching of floors. All components are commercial grade on SportsArt’s world-class health club strength products to make the A979 Low Row Leverage Back Machine perfect for any commercial gym, fitness center, home gym, hotel workout center, personal training studio, or corporate wellness facility. The SportsArt Plate Loaded Series combines quality and value in a simple, easy-to-use free weight strength line designed to accommodate users of any fitness or experience.
