Take your rowing experience to the next level.
From a fitness perspective, the Riviera Rower works more than 80% of your muscle mass, helping tone and strengthen your muscles while burning far more calories than most other aerobic machines.
The exercise is also low impact, as it removes all the body weight from the ankles, knees, and hips, but still moves the limbs and joints through a full range of motion-from completely extended to completely contracted.
The stroke cycles of the Riviera Rower hold true to the dynamics of real paddling. This rower has actual paddles. These are housed in a water tank, creating a ‘water flywheel’. When the user pulls on the handlebar, the paddles push the water.
Variable Water Resistance is created as the paddle turns through a water tank. The water resistance naturally rises and falls; As with real rowing, when you paddle faster, the increased drag provides more resistance. When you paddle slower, the resistance is less intense.
The rider can adjust the tension level. At ‘Max’ the water tank is filled to capacity. It can hold up to 17 liters.
