Why Hire a Rower?
Did you know that recent studies show that if thinking about losing weight, when you hire a rower you burn calories faster than biking at the same perceived level of exertion?
What are the other advantages of hiring a rower? In general people hire a rower because they recognise that it is a great form of upper body as well as lower body workout. It is also a low impact form of exercise if used correctly. We have written an article in another post which guides you in the correct way to use a rower for this who are looking for this sort of information.
But there is no question that a rowing machine can provide that all round fitness that people look for.
Fit2run holds both Model C and Model D Concept 2 rowing machines in their range. We have just added some more Model D, Concept 2 rowers to our fitness equipment range so if you are looking at rowing over the winter and want to consider to hire a rower, the friendly team at Fit2Run can help.
Concept 2 has this to say about the benefits of rowing:
Involvement of many muscle groups – Rowing uses upper body, lower body and core muscle groups, thereby creating a large demand for calories. In addition, muscles continue to burn extra calories for a while after you finish exercising. The more muscles you use in your exercise, the more muscles will continue to burn these extra calories.
Strength as well as cardiovascular exercise – In addition to being a terrific cardiovascular exercise, rowing will also build your strength. Muscle burns more calories than fat, so the more muscle you have, the better off you will be in terms of calorie-burning.
Smooth, impact-free exercise – The smooth rhythmic nature of the rowing motion, and the lack of pounding and impact, make rowing the kind of exercise that you can do for the rest of your life. If you have old injuries, or joint problems, rowing is an excellent choice of exercise. You can also do longer workouts with rowing than with some other forms of exercise which are harder on the body. The longer you work out at any given level of exertion, the more calories you will burn.
We currently have rowers in stock.
