Why get a rowing machine?
The COVID-19 crisis has forced many gyms to close, some of which for good. If your area is restricted, or you're not yet comfortable going back to an indoor gym, a rowing machine is a great home workout solution.
Rowing has been found to reduce fat mass and increase muscle mass, according to one study from the Annals of Rehabilitation Medicine. Doing both at the same time improves your body composition, which is your body's ratio of muscle to fat. Less fat and more muscle helps you become healthier and more athletic, as your body has to take in more oxygen to deliver to your muscles.
If you're already an experienced rower looking for a winter or COVID-friendly solution to keep you occupied, the realistic nature of the Xtremepower rower is a natural fit. With a whopping $2900 discount, this might be the best deal on a water rower we've ever seen.
