Sport-Tiedje puts each fitness equipment through its paces. Then our team of sports scientists, serious athletes, and service technicians of many years of experience evaluate the products of different categories.
Compare easily the products using the Sport-Tiedje test judgement and find your appropriate equipment.
The equipment of a crosstrainer includes balance unit, brake system, training computer (display, programs, etc.), and extras like transport wheels, book holders, etc.. A goo equipment makes exercising more varied and more comfortable. Your workout becomes more effective with pulse measuring.
The stability of the crosstrainer is achieved by sturdy feet, high own weight, and a stable frame construction. A sturdy crosstrainer is not only durable - it is stable even for challenging workout sessions and provides a higher weight load capacity.
The balance unit consists of balance mass, pedal bearing, ball bearing, etc. and is very important for concentric run. Transmission ratio and stride length and stride width in combination with stride height contribute to a concentric run. When the crosstrainer offers a good concentric run, exercising is very joint-gentle. Muscle activity is distinctively increased as well.
The equipment includes, i.e., the brake system providing a comfortable workout motion. In combination with the training pc, precise resistance adjustments and diversion while exercising are made possible. Transport wheels, bottle holders, pulse measuring are extras increasing training comfort or effectivity and contributing to a good evaluation.
A sturdy frame construction, high weight, and safe stastand provide stability of the ergometer. A stable ergometer has a higher weight load capacity. Frame and handlebar are less loose for higher training intensities, the ergometer is more durable.
Besides the transmission ratio, the balance unit contributes to the concentric run. It consists of balance mass, pedal bearing, ball bearings, etc.. The better the concentric run, the more joint-gentle becomes the workout.
An ergonomic construction of the rgometer prevents signs of tiredness and physiological bad postures. Details like adjustment of saddle and handlebar, a low entry, pedal sapce, and general construction of the machine provide good ergonomics.
The resistance system is a core feature of rowers. Depending on the chosen system, the rowing motion can be regular and even or similar to rowing in nature , where the resistance varies depending on the pulling force.
Accessories such as a training computer with training programmes, a heart rate meter, a USB/PC port as well as transport wheels make for a more comfortable and effective training and contribute to positive ratings
The interaction of resistance system, running rails, seat castors, pulling rope and frame construction is extremely important for the motion sequence. A rowing machine with a smooth motion sequence provides extra joint-friendly training and increases muscle activity.
High stability depends on the construction of the frame, its weight and the floor space of the machine.
The more stable the rower, the higher the max. user weight and the more durable the machine.
Rowing machines with good stability stand more safely during intensive training with vigorous strokes.
