As a college and university sport, water rowing has a goal of teaching teamwork, in all reality though, the activity brings gym goers, therapy patients, group exercise and personal training more benefits in one workout than any other fitness program. Developed in the 1980's by John Duke, a Yale and U.S. National Team Rower, this unique and genious innovation has been delivering exciting results since 1988. WaterRower fitness equipment involves 84% of a body's muscle mass, promotes good posture, burns 1000 calories an hour (far more than the most strenous aerobic exercise) and all with no joint strain due to impact or body weight. Whats more, with these exercise machines there is a far lower percieved level of exertion than aerobics and the fluid connection with water and movement is naturally relaxing to the mind, burning stress along with fat and calories.
Powered by the natural force of water and user, the faster a user rows, the greater the resistance becomes. Its an exercise that is self-paced and always delivers an even stroke on consistent resistance throughout the full range of motion. To quote WaterRower, "A smooth fluid connection is essential to producing a smooth natural rowing stroke." Unlike conventional mechanical rowing equipment, with WaterRover this is no jerking and no jarring - just smooth, natural flow of motion. For any gym goer, the relaxing and natural workout found with these amazing fitness machines in their program will be something they'll be eager to repeat readily and often.
