Rowers, rowing machines, or rowing ergo-meters are a great total body workout. Whether your goal is to lose weight or improve cardiovascular fitness, a fitness rowing machine is a great place to start. They are long-lasting pieces of exercise equipment that will get your arms, legs, and cardiovascular system engaged in the workout. In addition, commercial rowing exercise machines sometimes use air for resistance, and these are great, but our home users often prefer the quieter and smoother magnetic and water resistance rowers. A top seller is the Life Fitness Row HX Trainer Rower, a tough and reliable total-body workout exercise rower that will offer a fun, yet demanding challenge for many years.
