Home Fitness Gyms Pt2 - Rowing Machines

Continued from "Home Fitness Gyms - part 1 - Nautilus Ellipticals

The Benefits of a Fitness Rowing Machine

The rowing machine is an excellent way to increase the health of your whole body both inside as well as out.

This machine is designed to simulate actually rowing a boat so that it feels as if you are busy pushing oars through water as you use the rower.

These machines are suitable for the majority of people since you can do it at your own pace.

Rowing machines are perfect for not only losing weight but for improving stamina, burning calories and rehabilitating ligaments, muscles and joints after you have sustained an injury. Rowing machines are great additions to home fitness gyms.

More Benefits - Rowing Machine Fat Burning & Cardio Workouts

A workout on a rowing machine will achieve two basic things: a muscle workout as well as a cardiovascular workout.

It is said that your legs get about 70% of the workout benefits and that your upper body gets the rest.


You are able to get a full body workout using just one machine.

This allows you to get a low-impact workout while providing you with everything from a fat-burning cardiovascular aerobic workout to anaerobic strength-training workouts. This machine will help you burn up to 15 calories a minute and allows you to maintain fitness levels by only having to workout 20 minutes each session.

Muscle groups in your legs, arms, chest abs and back are all involved when using a rowing machine. This is just about the most complete aerobic workout machine that is available today. It is also low impact so it is very easy on your joints.

You can get a Stamina Rowing Machine - Body Trac Glider 1050 rowing machine for approximately $230.00!

Lifecore r900 Rowing Machine Series

At the higher end of the scale, you can purchase a Lifecore Fitness R900 rowing machine for $1,600.00. This machine is bound to give you a relaxing workout due to its silent drive system.

You will certainly be challenged by this machine especially as there are 16 levels of magnetic resistance! This rower conveniently folds up to save space. The newer model, the LifeCore Fitness R100 APM Premier Rower is backed with a 5 year warranty on parts and an additional lifetime warranty on the frame. Very cool.
