EnergyFit, an innovative commercial equipment company out of California, released a revolutionary new training machine called the Ski-Row Air+Pwr. It is a first of its kind, dual-function high intensity interval training (HIIT) machine. Its flexibility, space-saving design and mobility are ideal for all types of fitness facilities.
The machine can be used for rowing-only or skiing-only workouts, but its true value is revealed by enabling mixed-erg workouts and alternative exercise modalities. A simple foot-lever press enables the switch from rower to SkiErg and back in less than five seconds.
“We’re incredibly excited to show off our new product,” said Marko Vujicic, the owner of EnergyFit. “This is a great opportunity for fitness professionals, gym owners and fitness companies to offer the training benefits of two amazing exercise devices in a single machine.”
The Ski-Row Air+Pwr combines two of the most powerful forms of indoor training: indoor rowing and SkiErg exercise. Rowing at a moderate pace for 30 minutes burns 210 calories for a 125-pound person and 311 calories for a 185-pound person. Using the SkiErg, a motion that mimics the full-body movement used in Nordic skiing, burns up to 1,122 calories per hour.
The product is packed with features and capabilities, including a magnetic brake that offers 20 levels of smooth resistance, air-flywheel resistance, Bluetooth and ANT+ Heart Rate connectivity, and commercial-grade components and durability.
By combining two devices, the Ski-Row also reduces the overall footprint a typical indoor rower and SkiErg would require. With two separate devices in use, over 40 square feet would be necessary — the Ski-Row only requires 22.8 square feet. Better yet, when transformed into its SkiErg configuration, the device only needs 12.5 square feet. The Ski-Row also features wheels that allow it to be moved anywhere.
The company has also developed dozens of training programs that utilize indoor rowing, SkiErg exercise and calisthenics to provide full body training. The programs can be used by individuals or in a group class setting without the need for additional equipment.
