The rowing machine is perhaps the most underrated fitness device. And that while you use the most muscles on the rowing machine and improve your condition at the same time. Are you in doubt about purchasing such a cool fitness device for your home? Read all the benefits of a rowing machine in this blog.

YOU WILL USE 80% OF YOUR MUSCLES

Training on a rowing machine is extremely effective, because you use about 80% of your muscles. This means that you use more muscles than with other forms of cardio. You not only use your arms and shoulders, but also your leg and glutes. In order not to get back problems and to take and maintain a good position, it is important that you tighten your abdominal muscles. It is therefore possible that you suddenly feel your abs the day after your training.

YOU WILL IMPROVE YOUR CONDITION

Besides that training on a rowing machine is good for tendons and muscles, your condition is also challenged on a rowing machine. You can decide for yourself how heavy you want the resistance to be and at what speed you train. On a rowing machine you can do a warm-up or cool-down, but also a full interval training. This allows you to challenge yourself for short periods, while rowing at a slower pace in between. This ensures that you improve your stamina.

ROWING TRAINERS TAKE UP LITTLE SPACE

A rowing machine is long, but narrow. As a result, it takes up much less space than, for example, a treadmill. At Flow Fitness we even have rowing machines that you can put upright or fold. This way you won’t be bothered by it if you’re not using the rowing machine and it takes up as little space as possible.
