Surprisingly, indoor rowing machines have been around longer than any other type of fitness equipment we know today.
Naturally, the first rowing machines weren't anything like the rowers you see today as knowledge and technology was very lacking in comparison. The first fitness equipment of this type was invented in the mid 1800's and used a hydraulic damper mechanism. By the early 1900's technology allowed pnematic resistance, but neither of these were an accurate facsimile of watercraft rowing and had no means of measuring a user's activity or progress.
Coaches began using rowing machines for training purposed in the mid 1900's that did measure power output, but the materials used in the design of the machine left much to be desired for today's standards of accuracy. Many improvements have been made to typical air resistance indoor rowers in the past few decades.
The ultimate in a full body workout that provides user controlled resistance. This incredibly simple design is ingenious and is the perfect match for anyone's fitness and training needs.
