Now more institution than trend, indoor rowing has grown in popularity over the last handful of years and has become a genre of fitness all to itself.
A favorite of cross training gyms and competitions across the world, indoor rowing also has use in any type of club or workout facility thanks to its precise blend of total body engagement and cardio. Ideal for people of all body types and fitness levels, indoor rowing carries numerous health and fitness benefits from beginners all the way to trained athletes and competitors.
Understanding the growing need for alternative products in the indoor rowing market, Forest Park, Illinois-based Body-Solid, Inc. developed an indoor rower for its Endurance cardio line: The Endurance R300 Indoor Rower.
“As Body-Solid continues to expand its product line, a rower was a logical next step,” said Body-Solid CEO Scott McDonald. “We are seeing a resurgence in their popularity driven in part by their use in CrossFit and other high intensity exercises.”
The R300 Indoor Rower joins Body-Solid’s FB300 Fan Bike and a bevy of new products that are modern approaches to classic equipment seeing increased interest across the fitness world.
Body-Solid’s engineering team designed the R300 Indoor Rower to be a self-generating machine, eliminating any and all power requirements.
Noise level is often a concern with cardio machines, but the R300 features a state-of-the-art precision-engineer flywheel designed to minimize noise, particularly when one or more rower is being used at the same time.
The R300 features user-controlled air resistances, putting those using the machine in full control of their workout. The easy-to-use interface and design makes it a great choice for facilities with novice clientele.
“Body-Solid attempted to take the very best of what we had seen in other models available on the market — influenced by our engineer’s best practices in product development — to create a product with the quality and durability to hold up in commercial facilities with a price that is reachable for any user,” said McDonald.
The R300 Indoor Rower features a nickel-plated chain offering unmatched durability, even in heavy-use club or group exercise environments.
An easy-to-use, interactive console reports on time, heart rate, calories, paddle width, stroke rate, distance cycle and watts. The console features different exercise programs specifically designed to make indoor rowing workouts both engaging and effective, including quick start, distance, time, calories, game and intervals.
The textured ergonomic handle on the R300 allows users to row with natural hand and arm positions for maximum muscle engagement. Easily adjustable footrests provide users a safe and comfortable workout and makes entering and exiting the machine a breeze.
The Endurance R300 Indoor Rower is covered under Endurance by Body-Solid’s industry-best commercial warranty, providing peace of mind that the R300 will last a lifetime.
