  1. Rowing Machines - A Buyers Guide

    Indoor rowing machines give people a total body workout through stationary physical training. Used to simulate watercraft rowing, stationary rowing machines were developed for collegiate rowing teams in the 1950's, and by the 1960's, indoor rowers were quintessential for all college level, or professional rowers. While providing the same cardiovascular benefits as running, rowing machines are great because they do not put the same high impact pressure on your body that running on a treadmill does.

At the end of the day, most people do not think of using a rowing machine when thy begin their daily exercise routine. Not too long ago, the common denominator held by most fitness equipment enthusiasts, was the fact that they all had a rowing machine at home, that they could count on whenever they got the urge to workout and people were really into using their fitness rower to shape up. Underneath the bed. In the closet. Upstairs in the attic. Surely somewhere in your home, there used to be a rowing machine and it was there for anyone in the family to use. What happened between then and now? After all, rowing machines still provide an excellent total body workout and they are one of a few
