Great for weight loss, toning and building muscles, and increasing stamina, this machine is a fitness game changer, using a rowing machine is a great way to improve your overall health. It's low impact and easy for all ages and fitness levels, a rowing machine is essentially a piece of exercise equipment that mimics the motion of rowing a boat in water, making it a full body workout. Rowers work out several major muscle groups and will help you develop both your upper and lower body. Most importantly, using a rowing machine gets your heart pumping and lungs working, providing a serious aerobic workout.
So take your pick from high tech rowing machines to more aesthetically pleasing WaterRower hand crafted in solid ash and stained honey oak both give you the full work out.
