Do squats without knee pain! This top-rated rowing machine is on sale for just $110

If you made a promise to yourself that 2023 will be the year you lose those extra pounds and look better in a pair of yoga pants, let this also be the year you stick to that resolution. It's not easy, but having the right at-home equipment is half the battle — and Amazon currently has a very motivating sale on a slew of top-rated fitness equipment. Among the best New Year deals is the ultra-popular Sunny Health & Fitness Squat Assist Row-N-Ride Trainer, a next-level rowing machine that deserves pride of place in your home gym — and will please your overextended budget at a very reasonable $110.

Done incorrectly, squats can put the wrong kind of pressure on your joints, but this rowing machine has a feature called Squat Assist that essentially works as a personal trainer, keeping you in proper form while you work your glutes, quads and hamstrings.

Squats are a surefire way to get the firm butt of your dreams, of course, but this glute-burning move also improves flexibility. Plus, the motion strengthens your back and core and helps prevent injuries. The Sunny Health & Fitness Squat Assist Row-N-Ride Trainer works overtime not just assisting your squats but also displaying your progress on an easy-to-read LCD monitor. And when you're done exercising, the Row-N-Squat folds up and stores away.

Five-star reviewers love this rowing machine so much because it provides incentive to even the least motivated people. "My body was starting to ache around my back, knees, legs and feet. I sit all day in front of the computer. My doctor kept reminding me to exercise. I hate to exercise," wrote one convert. "I can say this machine has been a health saver for me...This machine engages all your muscles. I don't fall into a slouch anymore, and I feel my stomach muscles are responding and pulling together. Since the stomach muscles control the back and the back controls the legs, I look forward for those aches to start melting away. I feel I am on my way back to wellness."

Another fan was able to see significant weight loss from the Sunny Health & Fitness Squat Assist Row-N-Ride Trainer alone. "Covid, working from home, and being a mom helped me put on 25 pounds. I have had this machine for three weeks and with eating less, not past 7 pm, and using this machine 4 to 5 days a week... I have lost 8 lbs to date," wrote one pleased shopper. "The workout videos they give you range from full body workouts to upper to lower. I love this machine and definitely recommend it if you are looking for a versatile machine to work out your full body."

Amazon's big sale on at-home gym equipment includes some of these favorites, too:

"WOW, where has this been all my life?? I can’t believe I’m only just getting this now because it really changes the game! I’m home a lot and I often am embarrassed at the steps my Fitbit tells me I’ve taken in a day. Now with this, I do a lot of the things I normally do at home — work, talk on the phone, read, listen to audiobooks or podcasts, watch shows, watch the golfers out my living room window — except now I can do all that while I’m moving my body!" wrote a satisfied shopper.
