It may well be! The rowing world is going crazy for this indoor rowing machine - a name which does not do it justice... The Biorower S1Club Indoor Rower, really is something a bit different. It is the closest you will come to true rowing without being on the actual water, but with the extra advantages of getting all your metrics so that you can improve every aspect of your rowing. From Olympians to absolute beginners, everyone is in love with this machine.
You can tell that the S1Club was created by professional rowers alongside highly experienced engineers because everything about it is designed to replicate the experience of rowing outside as closely as possible. Bringing realistic rowing indoors for the first time.
The cockpit dimensions and the adjustability of the S1club precisely match the rowing shell. The foot stretchers (footplate) are adjustable to your body height as are the oar handles. The realistic rowing motion is intuitive and easily understandable. Offering the natural rowing motion which is a full body, low impact and full range of motion work out. Which means it is perfect for professional rowers as well as absolute beginners.
The feel of the resistance during the drive is the most realistic experience ever developed by a manufacturer. The patented, ultra durable high precision transmission inside the body of the S1 grants exceptionally realistic rowing feeling, as you move the "boat" back and forth while you row, instead of moving yourself.
The Biorower was developed by professional rowers, at the beginning mainly intended for elite athletes. As more and more non rowers wanted to enjoy the realistic indoor rowing feeling, the Biorower is now considered to be an insider's tip in the fitness industry. Winning it the prestigious "Best New Fitness Product 2018" award at the 2018 ISPO Brandnew Awards.
But what potentially makes it better than actually rowing in a real boat outdoors is that angle sensors and strain gauges on both oar handles precisely measure how much force is applied at which position of the stroke. This biomechanic data is then sent to your mobile device via bluetooth. Meaning that you have all this data at your disposal to improve your rowing.
