Rowing machines offer the optimal solution for all who want to stabilize their bloodstream with specific training and simultaneously improve physical fitness.

In addition rowing machines train each muscle group very joint-friendly due to the shock-free and smooth movements. As a result, the risk of injury in rowing is particularly low. Power and endurance are equally regarded during training and make the entire cardiovascular system stronger. In addition to improved endurance performance and strengthened muscles, the bodyweight reduction is another positive effect of training using a rowing machine.
The training can be absolved at any age and is recommended for both men and women. In one hour of rowing about 700 calories are consumed, because the whole body is involved in the training. The physical effort works against the loss of muscle mass, which is often associated with an ordinary diet. Due to the mild stress of each major muscle group the training on a rowing machine is used in order to train specific muscle groups. Especially back problems that get increasingly common can be effectively fought against with regular exercise on a rowing machine. Back pain often results from inadequately trained back muscles; these can be effectively trained with regular rowing, no matter if using a rowing machine, or on the water. The entire trunk musculature, including the core muscles, are trained, which stabilizes the spine and back pain can so be prevented in the future.
