10 Reasons Why The WaterRower Is The Ultimate Home Workout Machine

Rowing machines are versatile pieces of home fitness equipment. They can help you tone and build muscle, lose weight, improve endurance, and increase your overall fitness level. WaterRower with its outstanding features is geared toward the serious athlete but it is also a great choice for any home exercise enthusiast looking for a high-quality piece of fitness equipment to stay in shape.

Why You Should Be Using A WaterRower

1. You Get A Full Body Workout

The rowing stroke uses 84% of the body's Muscle Mass. Other common aerobic exercise equipment such as treadmills, cycles, ellipticals, even other rowing machines, use far less muscle mass, burn fewer calories, and generate less exercise benefit.

2. You Will Burn More Calories

By spreading work over a wide range of muscles, rowing consumes calories in more muscles, allowing a high calorie consumption within the user's limits of fatigue. It is possible to burn more than 600 calories per hour. Other exercises, recruiting fewer muscles, require far higher intensities to achieve the same calorie consumption as rowing

3. It's A Great Form Of Low Impact Training

With its smooth fluid movements, minimal impact and no body weight on the joints, a WaterRower Rowing Machine is the ideal option for athletes recovering from an injury and those with other conditions that limit weight-bearing, high impact activities. Many other mechanical rowers are jerky and jarring on the joints and fail to emulate the smoothness of rowing.

4. Rowing Is Easy On Your Joints

Rowing moves the joints through a full range of motion, from legs extended to contracted, and arms contracted to extended. Moving the joints through a full range of motion aids joint lubrication, joint mobility, and overall joint health. This makes the WaterRower a good choice for those suffering from Arthritis.

5. The WaterRower Quality Is Better Than The Rest

The WaterRower’s unique WaterFlywheel design uses a specially formed paddle to cup the moving water, reduce slippage and produce an unrivaled simulation of the benefits of real-life rowing. All while being quieter than other air or magnetic resistance rowers. There is no jerkiness or jarring which is often associated with conventional mechanical rowing machines. This uniform stroke is essential to spreading the work more evenly over the muscle groups, working the muscle groups in proportion to their strength and optimizing exercise benefit while reducing the risk of injury.

6. It's Designed With Amazing Built-In Tech

It is important to track the amount of work you are performing. All WaterRower monitors are designed to be user-friendly while providing ample advanced functionality. Depending on the model you choose the monitor may display Time, Distance, Speed/Intensity, Stroke Rate and Heart Rate (with optional sensor).
