Rowing Machines

Rowing machines offer a simple, practical way to get exercise. When shopping for a rowing machine there are a variety of factors to consider.

First, think about where your machine will go. If you'll be keeping it outdoors, make sure it's made from rust-resistant materials designed for outdoor use. If you'll be using it indoors at home and your space is limited, consider a folding rowing machine. For commercial use, look for a rower with a strong, durable construction.

Another factor to consider is the resistance type. Rowing machines with fan resistance have a flywheel. Increased wind increases the resistance. Those with hydraulic resistance rely on hydraulic pistons in the wheel. This allows you to adjust the resistance to customize your workout. Rowing machines with magnetic resistance have magnets in the wheel that create resistance as you row.

Finally, consider whether you want a machine with computerized features. Some rowing machines will display your stroke rate, speed and heart rate, among other features.

At Walmart, you'll find a great selection of rowing machines and other exercise machines at Every Day Low Prices. Save money. Live better.
