Rowing Machines Buying Guide

Having a Rowing Machine in your house can be the push you need to get your muscles moving in a challenging yet comfortable way. Some people believe Rowing Machines are for off-season rowers only, but that’s far from the truth. Rowing simultaneously provides a great full-body workout and an excellent cardiovascular workout. According to the American Fitness Professionals Association (AFPA), the rowing stroke is comprised of 65 to 75 per cent leg work and 25 to 35 per cent upper bodywork. Just watch a few tutorials and you are set to start rowing. Keep in mind that there are many different styles and features that you need to consider before choosing your Rowing Machine. Read through this buying guide for more information and factors to consider before investing in a rowing machine.

Type of Resistance 

Air 

In Air resistance, fan blades are used to create resistance that makes a fair amount of noise but the motion on these Rowing Machines is very smooth. These Rowing Machines can be commonly found in fitness centres and they are known to give a smooth, natural rowing stroke.  

Magnetic 

These rowers are very quiet, easy to maintain and deliver a smooth rowing motion with adjustable resistance because of the magnetic braking system. These models are very durable and require less maintenance. 

Water 

In water resistance, rowers experience a real life-like rowing experience that motivates them to push themselves more. The paddles/blades that move through the water provide a realistic rowing motion that feels and sounds like you’re rowing on water because of which it makes a fair amount of noise. 

Hydraulic Piston 

Hydraulic resistance rowers are affordable as compared to its counterparts. The hydraulic pistons create a quiet resistance and they are usually adjustable as per our convenience. They are also compact and easy to store.  

Features to Consider before Buying Rowing Machines 

Comfort and Adjustability 

While investing in a Rowing Machine, look for features like comfortable seats, good foot pads, adjustability and the extent of resistance.   

Noise Levels 

Some indoor Rowing Machines are noisier than others. While some people appreciate the rushing noise as a kind of motivation for pushing hard, some simply appreciate the less noise that some of these machines offer.  

Ease of Assembly 

Make sure you’re not getting some crazy puzzle instead of a piece of exercise equipment. A Rowing Machine comes with many parts and if bought online, you will have to assemble to machine yourself. Go for an equipment that comes with a good description and easy to understand user manual.  

Warranty 

Always make sure you’re getting a standard warranty that covers parts and frames so that in case of accidental damage, you don’t have to undergo the hassle of repairs. The warranty will cover the damage making it very convenient for you.  

Price 

Affordable models can get you working out but may need more maintenance or a faster replacement. Higher-priced models are manufactured with care and last a long time. Good Quality Rowing Machines range between USD 250 to USD 650 based on the quality of the parts, resistance offered and various features.  

Conclusion 

Take the time to do some research first. The best Rowing Machine is the one that fits in your budget and fits your body. Take a look at our featured section above for more information on the various types of Rowing Machines that are popular for their performance, effectiveness and durability.
