Indoor Rowing at Elite Fitness Studio

An indoor rower, or rowing machine, is a machine used to simulate the action of watercraft rowing for the purpose of exercise or training for rowing. Indoor rowing has become established as a sport in its own right. The term also refers to a participant in this sport.

Indoor rowing primarily works the cardiovascular systems with typical workouts consisting of steady pieces of 20–40 minutes. Like other forms of cardio focused exercise, interval training is also commonly used in indoor rowing.

Rowing is a no impact exercise, which is easy on the joints and great cross-training for other activities.

It works the entire body

Once you understand proper form, the machine itself is easy to use.

While cardio-focused, rowing also stresses many muscle groups throughout the body anaerobically, thus rowing is often referred to as a strength-endurance sport.
