A Head to Toe Workout On Your Gym’s Rowing Machine

If you’re looking to get an amazing workout from head to toe, increase your cardio respiratory fitness and do it all with little or NO impact on your body- look no further than the rowing machine at our Monmouth County gym.

Tucked towards the back of our cardio deck at Ultimate Fitness is the rowing machine.  This unassuming piece of equipment can provide you with one of the most comprehensive workouts in a very short amount of time.  Simulating the movement and resistance of being on the water, this exercise requires you to engage multiple muscles in your upper body, lower body and your entire core.  At the same time, you are greatly enhancing your cardio respiratory fitness with absolutely NO impact on your joints.

It is estimated that you can burn around 600 calories per hour rowing.  Plus- rowing is one of the few non-weight bearing sports that exercises all the major muscle groups.  The primary muscles worked are the quadriceps, the large muscles of the thigh.  However your lower and middle back, hamstrings, calves, glutes and biceps will all be engaged to perform this movement.  Basically you’ll feel the burn from head to toe.  Running on the treadmill can’t compare to the workout you get from rowing- plus you avoid the impact on your joints. 

If you would like to incorporate rowing into your daily exercise regimen, you can request an appointment with one of our personal trainers in Monmouth County to teach you the proper way to use the rowing machine.  Your half hour session will not only include instruction on how to use the machine but the proper form and technique to maintain while doing this exercise as well.

Instructional sessions are just $25 per half hour. These are not personal training sessions.  They are instructional and educational.  For more information please email UFTrainingCenter1540@gmail.com
