Air vs Magnetic Rowers
Movement First also offer Magnetic Rowing Machines here!
Both kinds of rowers work the same muscles and offer users the same set of functions using the same techniques but read on to see which suits your uses better.
The resistance created by air rowers is due to the the "air" created by users when they pull the handle as it spins a "fan flywheel". As the flywheel spins, it must move the "air" in the front and side of the flywheel. The "air" around the flywheel creates resistance which then requires the users' force to move. As a user rows faster, the flywheel spins faster and must move more "air" at a greater resistance, which in turn requires more force to maintain. This allows them to mimic the resistance felt when rowing a boat on water closely.
As such, air rowers have an infinite number of resistance levels fully dependent on the amount of force exerted by users.
Magnetic rowers use a magnet in its flywheel to create resistance to counter the force exerted when the handle is pulled. While air rowers create resistance by moving the "air" around the flywheel, magnetic rowers utilize the magnet's currents to resist the flywheel's spinning instead.
Magnetic rowers also feature a magnet in its flywheel for braking that is adjustable using dials.
The main differences to keep in mind are:
- air rowers are noisier due to the air movement in the flywheel while magnetic rowers are silent in comparison.
- air rower resistance is dependent on how fast a user rows while magnetic rower resistance can be set throughout the workout
The rower provides a full body, low impact workout and is a great addition to any home or studio gym.
It simulates actual rowing in water which can be mentally calming especially when paired with repetitive movements and good form.
