When you think of cardio machines, you typically think of bikes, treadmills and ellipticals, but there’s a hidden gem that provides a full-body low impact cardiovascular workout: the rowing machine.

A rowing machine simulates the action of watercraft rowing and requires the user to use both upper and lower body simultaneously. The full body rhythmic nature of rowing makes it wonderfully efficient at burning calories while also developing flexibility and strength.

Thinking about adding a rowing machine to your home gym? Not sure what model is best for you? XTERRA Fitness offers a wide selection of rowing machines and will go in depth on each model in a series of blog posts, XTERRA Fitness Rower Guides and Reviews. First in the series, ERG700 Air Rower.

The XTERRA Fitness ERG700 Air Rower provides an unparalleled full-body workout for users of all fitness levels with the added convenience of a fold up frame design.

One of the most popular features of the ERG700 Air Rower is the 5.5” console with motivating programs and performance monitoring that rivals more expensive options out there.

The performance monitor clearly displays time, distance, strokes/min, count, calories, heartrate, watts, level and a program graphic of resistance over time. It also features 10 effective programs for a wide variety of workouts.

The combination air and magnetic resistance provides an unparalleled full-body workout with 16 levels to deliver the perfect exercise experience.

The 16 levels of resistance makes the ERG700 a good machine for all fitness levels and stimulates the feel of rowing to provide an impact-free workout with user-controlled intensity.

When you are not using your ERG700 Rower, simply fold it up and wheel it out of the way. With folded dimensions of just 52.5” long x 18” wide it won’t consume a room when not in use.
