Kettler Kadett Outrigger Style Rower Review

About The Product:
While other forms of exercise training limit their target outputs, rowing exercises work out all major muscle groups and improve overall stamina and strength. A Kettler Kadett Outrigger Rower is a welcome addition to any home gym, its got all the A1 features of professional gym rowers yet does not need you to go over a thousand dollar budget.

The Kettler Kadett Outrigger has special circular arm movements which closely replicate the actual process of outdoor water rowing, less the threats of capsizing and weather disturbances! Its resistance system is made with hydraulic cylinders that have the capacity to set adjust difficulty levels on a scale of 1 to 12. Ergonomically designed seat type and smooth runners beneath ensure a considerable smoother and comfortable glide.

More remarkable are the features in its training monitor which, apart from the standard time-distance-speed readouts, allow you to program specific workouts based on distance settings or stroke speeds. This one is more interesting than the rest as it gives out audio signals when you have reached your target. Such a small feature, but it keeps you from constantly having to glance at the monitor.

Our Verdict:

With this, the Kettler stands out from the competition, as natural and fluid rowing motion causes a lot lesser stress and jarring on the joints, enabling the user to go for longer periods of low-impact workouts.  Anyone looking for quality and performance wouldnt go wrong with this one.
