If you love the convenience of being able to work out without leaving home, we’ve got you covered.
Consider looking into rowing machines, which have a number of health benefits. For one thing, they work the entire body – that’s right, not just the arms! These machines are low-impact and excellent for maintaining cardiovascular health. And as an added benefit, the repetitive motion is meditative and can help you manage stress.
Here are some of the best home rowers currently on the market.
Sunny Health & Fitness Magnetic Rowing Machine
At just over $200, this rower is a great deal. The digital monitor keeps track of your time, calories burned, and other stats. It also has an extra long slide rail, making it perfect for every body type. You can adjust the magnetic resistance level, customizing the difficulty of the workout. And best of all, it comes with wheels, so you can tilt it up and roll it out of the way, reducing its footprint when it’s not in use!
Fitness Reality 1000 Plus Bluetooth Magnetic Rowing Rower
This one has all the features of the Sunny model, but with one extra (and important) element. Its Bluetooth function allows you to integrate the machine with your cellphone so you can track your workout data. Customer reviews also note that it’s very quiet, and easy to put away when it’s not in use.
ECHANFIT Magnetic Rower
With 16 levels of magnetic resistance, you’ll be able to get exactly the workout you want with this machine. It features an ergonomic design with foam handles to keep you comfortable while you sweat it out. You’ll find all the usual tracking features on this machine, along with a cellphone holder.
Stamina BodyTrac Glider Rowing Machine 1052
Get access to free workouts with this rower. It’s one of the most inexpensive on the market, but don’t let that fool you – this is a sturdy and effective machine. Unlike some of the rowers featured here, it has foldable rowing arms, which will help you remain consistent with your form. And best of all, it takes up very little space.
