A popular workout for looking to spice up their cardio, rowing machines are fun, engaging and low impact—reducing stress on the joints.
Similar to stationary bikes, rowing machines are great for injury prevention and rehab. Use rowing machines for weight loss, toning and building muscles, increasing stamina and more.
Rowing machines also help strengthen the lower back and abdominal muscles to build a stronger core.
Air rowing machines produce resistance using air flowing over an internal flywheel.
Air rowing machines provide an excellent rowing-on-water simulation. With an air rowing machine, you remain in control of your resistance throughout your workout. If you want more resistance, you simply row harder and faster. For less resistance, row less intensely.
The wheel is connected by a chain to the rowing handle and as you pull this spins the flywheel. The faster you row, the faster the flywheel spins through the air, thus the greater the resistance.
