Why Hire a Rower?

Why Hire a  Rower?

 

What are the other  advantages of hiring a rower? In general people hire a rower because they recognise that it is a great form of upper body as well as lower body workout.  It is also a low impact form of exercise if used correctly. We have written an article in another post which guides you in the correct way to use a rower for this who are looking for this sort of information.

But there is no question that  a rowing machine can provide that all round fitness that people look for.

Fit2run holds both Model C and Model D  Concept 2 rowing machines in their range.  We have just added some more Model D, Concept 2 rowers to our fitness equipment range so if you are looking at rowing over the winter and want to consider to hire a rower, the friendly team at Fit2Run can help.

Concept 2 has this to say about the benefits of rowing:

Involvement of many muscle groups – Rowing uses upper body, lower body and core muscle groups, thereby creating a large demand for calories. In addition, muscles continue to burn extra calories for a while after you finish exercising. The more muscles you use in your exercise, the more muscles will continue to burn these extra calories.

Strength as well as cardiovascular exercise – In addition to being a terrific cardiovascular exercise, rowing will also build your strength. Muscle burns more calories than fat, so the more muscle you have, the better off you will be in terms of calorie-burning.

Smooth, impact-free exercise – The smooth rhythmic nature of the rowing motion, and the lack of pounding and impact, make rowing the kind of exercise that you can do for the rest of your life. If you have old injuries, or joint problems, rowing is an excellent choice of exercise. You can also do longer workouts with rowing than with some other forms of exercise which are harder on the body. The longer you work out at any given level of exertion, the more calories you will burn.

We currently have rowers  in stock.

Servicing the Treadmill

Treadmills require regular servicing to keep them in good working order. The belts need to be kept lubricated on average every two months with a good silicon spray, and belts need tightened over time. We recommend servicing your treadmill every year on average.

We have over 20 years experience at servicing home, gym and commercial treadmills. We also carry a large range of spare parts and get many calls for things like safety magnets, or customised belts and decks for imported treadmills.

So if you are experiencing some problems with your treadmill that you think we can help you with, we will do our best to fix the problem.

Fit2run is very happy to give advice over the phone. One of our helpful service technicians can talk you through the likely scenarios if there is a fault with your treadmill. If we can save you the cost of a call out, we will try to do this.

So don’t let those E1 errors on your console, or slipping belts, prevent you from keeping fit. Give us a call and we will see if we can help.

See the  YOUTUBE CLIPS on the WEBSITE  for  TIPS  on  SERVICING YOUR TREADMILL!
