A Quick Look at the Specs of Indoor Rowing Machines
One of the first things a person is to do while deciding which rowing machine to buy is check the specs of each and every affordable and available rowing machine out there, then double-check his or hers own needs and expectations. The former is exactly the bit of research this article aims to provide, and possibly help any potential rowing machine customers decide which one is the best for the particulars needs. The article is a comparison of the three most popular models out there.
Kettle Coach Rowing Machine
The price range of this model starts at roughly $900.
This rowing machine is rigged with ten levels of adjustable resistance, which in turn allows the rower to simulate various levels of resistance. Progress and statistics are recorded by use of a computer which is integrated into this machine. The computer has the ability to measure: the number of strokes a rower takes, the heart rate recovery patterns, the energy consumption and, obviously, the total distance coverage.
Additionally, anti-slip floor protectors keep the rowing machine from freely moving about while the rower is working on it.
Other details include: a high quality padded seat, feet straps, and the ability to hold up to 300 lbs.
It is fairly small, which means that it doesn't eat up too much space and may be easily fit into a crummy corner if necessary. Next in line is the
Tunturi R60 Rowing Machine
This machine is somewhat more expensive tan the Kettle Coach Rowing Machine, so presumably it is “better” than the former. Its price range osculates around about $15000.
This machine has got twelve different built-in programs. This functionality aims to provide the rower with getting the most out of it. Eight of the twelve programs are preset, and four are programmable. The remote controls are located on the pull bar, which makes it super easy to change gears mid-rowing.
Not to be overlooked is that this model comes with an extra long, 20 year warranty (when it comes to the frame and motor itself).
This machine holds up to 300 lbs, and is still highly portable.
Stamina ATS 1400 Air Rower
The stamina ATS 1400 Air Rower is the least expensive of the three. Its price is about $350.
It is the best choice for the rower who is merely looking to burn some calories and build stamina. Folding and storing is extra easy, and the device may be kept away from tripping feet when it is not in use.
It comes with a monitor which helps the rower keep track of his progress when it comes to burning calores.
