In a recent survey it was found that If you want to be fit, you should do at least 30minutes of exercise daily. Daily Exercise makes a huge difference in your body, it improves your cardiovascular and increases your lung capacity for the oxygenation of blood.
Treadmill can withstand more user weight around 400 lbs but a rower has a lesser weight capacity of around 300 lbs. While rowing machine gives you a full-body workout unlike a treadmill that works majorly on your lower body parts, therefore a rowing machine burns more calories.
You can easily be swayed away by the varieties of fitness equipment available in the market. Treadmills and Rowing machines are the most popular ones among them and considered to be one of the best exercise machines. So, Below we will discuss some of the basic differences between Treadmill and Rowing Machine.
Rowing machines are considered to be one of the best fat burning machines in the market. They provide the full body workout. One thing that I love about these machines that they come in different varieties. You can have a magnetic rower, air rower, and water rower. You won’t find these many options in treadmills. They are some of the rare machines that ensure the full body workout.
The best thing about the rowing machine that it provides the low impact workout and doesn’t hurt your joints and that’s why it is suitable for people of all ages. So, if you are obese and old then still you don’t have to worry about any wear and tear.
While doing rowing, the level of calorie burn is pretty high; you can burn around 700 calories in just half an hour. Rower Machines are bit costlier than the treadmills, but they are worth their price.
Treadmills don’t provide a full body workout. Instead, it focuses more on your waist, hips and lower body. Because here, most of the work is done by your legs not by your upper body. You can easily store them as they come with folding options. The best thing about the treadmill that it provides very simple exercise, running. You hop on a machine and start running. You can burn around 500 calories in half an hour.
In Treadmill, your joints will be affected, and that’s why it is not very well suited for old people who already have some joint problems. When it comes to weight limits, rowing machine has better capacity than the treadmill.
Which one is better?
I would say it completely depends on the individual choices. If you are a young person who loves running, then you can go for the treadmill. If you are in your 40’s and looking for a smooth workout, then you can choose a rowing machine. There could be several other factors, so take a look at all the pros and cons then only buy one.
