Product Review: Sunny Health & Fitness Row and Ride Squat Trainer

Let me just start off by saying that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a good workout in. In fact, most of the time I do at home workouts that I find for free online via Instagram or Pinterest. Being a mom of two young girls, one of those girls being just 18 months, it makes going to the gym really difficult. I much prefer to work out at home, in private, without the ick of sweaty germs from peeps that I don’t know, where I can remain close by if they need me.

I really hate squats, but as we all know, they are one of the most effective exercises that you can do for your lower body and I think we all like to make sure we pay extra attention to that asset. I was looking for something that would help me to maintain good form, when I came across the Sunny Health & Fitness Squat Row and Ride Trainer. I read through countless reviews and before long, they had me convinced that I needed to add this to my collection, so I ordered it. The shipment arrived maybe 2 days later via Prime and I excitedly put it together in a jif! I think it took maybe 20 minutes to assemble, which I did on my own. It was time for the moment of truth…was this $99 a waste or not?

Not a waste at all; this training unit is awesome! I literally was dripping sweat in just a handful of minutes, which doesn’t normally happen to me so quickly. I can’t believe that a machine that cost under $100 is this effective. The trainer comes with three resistance bands to either increase or decrease intensity; I started with all three and have kept it that way to remain consistent, ensuring that I am getting the best workout possible. Holy moly, my legs were so sore for like 3 days after using this the first time. It’s literally my favorite machine and I have a few. I try to rotate my routines between quick full body cardio workouts, to free weights and this machine to help keep things balanced and from me getting bored with doing the same thing over and over again. I use this in ten minute increments and repeat the period four times, taking a 2 minute breather in between each. I like to use it while I watch my shows, particularly the ID Channel. It’s my only “me time”, so I make the most of every second.

The unit folds down nearly flat, which is nice if you don’t have the space to store it upright. I just take it out to the garage when I’m done; it’s light enough to move back and forth. Needless to say, but if you happen to be in the hunt for a squat / rowing machine, then this comes highly recommended by me and thousands of others on Amazon. I’m all about affordability and this bad boy fits the bill.

Cheers to keeping a healthy heart and wallet!


Social media users that follow to unfollow, you’re lame!


I’m about to rant right now, because with this new blog comes a new IG and of course I get these irritating followers that unfollow if you don’t turn around and follow them right back. Sorry, but I’m just not that into you or your content, let alone this game that you play. If you’re not down with my posts and don’t genuinely want to follow the account, then what’s the point of trying to scam a follow out of me? Seriously, this is probably one of the lamest tactics ever and if you do this, then there’s a pretty good chance that I’d hate the person you are anyway, so it’s a good thing that I didn’t follow you back to begin with lmao! Really, though, what a waste of time and a damn good way to make certain that people absolutely detest you.

Do people truly believe that no one will notice and even if they do, that they will be like, “you know what, that was hella uncool, but I’m down for your misleading ways and you’ll probably mislead me some more, so I think I’m gonna keep following you even though you’re a shady motha.” I hope not, but unfortunately some people just won’t notice and will get used like a bath towel, and I just can’t help but be infuriated by this. I find that to be so low, immature and desperate.

If this isn’t an actual person behind the physical method of following then unfollowing, perhaps you paid for some bot action, some AI, but that to me, makes the account holder even more lame. I blogged before blogging was ever a thing and would never once have thought about paying for followers. Seriously though, I am from the Bay Area (Silicon Valley); my parents had one of the few ISP companies around at the time (think late 90s – early 2000s, so we were one with the Internet hype, so to see all of the fake stuff out there just gets to me. I guess with all of the technological advances comes the disingenuous. I really wish I would have held on to my blog, but I didn’t, so it is what it is. My loss, but I have to vent because really? Girl, bye!
