Hello dear!

Just like swimming requires additional efforts to fight the water pressure, the rowing machine makes you to burn more calories developing additional force resistance. At home!

Such fitness pauses are intense and effective, the results won’t wait too long to become visible. Your metabolism will be grateful working long after the training.

Do you know that magnetic (air) or hydraulic (water) resistance are less effective compared to self-driven one, Dorry? That’s the point when we talk about rowing machine efficiency. The adjusting features are mostly important for air resistance machine type. You can chose the rotating level with a finger movement. The feature is not common with water resistant machines. It is almost impossible to find such options in most models. So have you already decided which rowing machine do you prefer? Good luck! Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas holidays!
