A rowing machine simulates the action of rowboat rowing for cardiovascular exercise.

Rowing offers a fantastic total body workout that combines cardio and strength training in one exercise machine. It works your upper back, arms, pecs, abs, and obliques, as well as strengthening your quads, calves and glutes. During rowing you use your upper and lower body almost simultaneously, in other words, you exercise everything at once.

Rowing is an excellent option for low impact workouts. It reduces the risk of damaging weight bearing joints, such as hips, knees, and ankles.

In addition, rowing is becoming very popular in today’s gyms. Call Brigadoon Fitness and add a rowing machine to your home gym or commercial facility today.
