Row, Row, Row Your Boat!

Rowing can been described as the perfect aerobic exercise.  It is a total body workout, low impact and easy to learn.  Whether you are new to exercise or have been working out for years, rowing provides a new challenge to your fitness regime.

There are tons of benefits in incorporating an indoor rowing program into your fitness routine and it is quickly becoming a new trend in the fitness industry. One of the biggest benefits of rowing is the effect on weight loss.  Rowing burns calories rapidly, making it a suitable addition to your workout regimen if weight loss is your chief priority. A vigorous workout on a rowing machine can burn as many calories as a long distance run. Frequent rowing can help you work toward the calorie deficit that is integral to weight loss. Rowing is also great for injury prevention, rehabilitation and runners because it is a low impact alternative to other activities.  Resistance is created by how hard you push or pull, so you control the level of your own workout. Our Waterrower machines use 17-liters of water to give you the resistance similar to being on a boat. Simply, the harder you push and pull, the faster the water moves and the more resistance you feel. Your time and pace improves as you row harder.

Using a rowing machine is an endurance exercise that increases heart function and uses carbohydrates to provide the energy required to exercise.  Aerobic exercise improves lung, heart and circulation systems and is the cornerstone of an effective exercise routine.  Combined with a proper strength training routine, rowing can help you achieve your fitness goals!
