Rowing is an aerobic workout that targets more muscles in the body than any other exercise. A WaterRower allows you to work 84% of the muscle mass in your body, recruiting all major muscle groups. This maximizes your efforts in a minimum amount of time! Rowing can burn in excess of 1000 calories per hour, and does so with a far lower perceived level of exertion than other aerobic exercises.
WaterRower exercising moves your joints through a full range of motion - with minimal stress from impact and without full weight on the joints. Rowing is one of the best exercises for those who suffer from joint pain, not too mention keeping those with healthy joints from future problems. That feature alone will stir a lot of interest in this unique home fitness equipment, but there's more.
Exercise physiologists unanimously agree that what we need to do more of is leg extension, hip hinge and open shoulders type exercise. WaterRower exercise provides all of this and more.
When you're rowing, a distinct harmony is created from a natural balance of elements. The WaterRower blends the tranquility of moving water, the warmth of wood, and the rhythm of motion, a combination that is naturally pleasant, invigorates your body while it relaxes your mind and encourages you to continue from stroke to stroke.
