Stamina Trac Body Glider 1050 Review
The Stamina Trac Body Glider 1050 rowing machine is a budget rower that comes in at the lower end of the scale of exercise rowers.
However do not make the mistake of thinking that just because the Stamina 1050 is cheap to buy, you will not get an effective workout.
While I would advise more accomplished fitness athletes would get better benefits from a more high end rowing machine, most people will find this rower more than adequate for their needs. It is also one of the cheapest rowing machines on the market today, and has pretty good reviews from people that have purchased it.
If you feel that it’s time that you started to take more care of your health, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money to do this, then this is the ideal rowing machine for you.
Whether you want to shed some excess weight, tone your muscles, or just feel better about yourself by becoming fitter, the Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 will allow you to manage that.
There is no doubt that when it comes to fitness, rowing is one of the best methods to exercise. You can burn a lot more calories by performing rowing exercises, than you can using other types of fitness equipment such as exercise bikes, steppers, or treadmills.
The other types of equipment that I have mentioned rely mainly on using the lower body. Rowing has to be done involving the whole body. This means that as you are using more muscles, your body needs more oxygen. The result is an increase in cardiovascular health.
The other advantage of using more muscles while you exercise is that your body needs to expend more energy. It does this by increasing the amount of calories that are being burned as you exercise. Which is great for anyone looking to lose weight.
The Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 is solidly built from a hard steel frame. The low price does not compromise the robust build of this rowing machine.
You are provided with a monitor which has all the usual features that you will need. The monitor will provide you with details of how many calories you are burning, how fast you are going, and the time that you have spent rowing. You can also adjust the tension to make your exercising harder or easier.
At the end of the day the 1050 is a no frills rowing machine. It will give the average person a tough workout, with the ability to increase the difficulty as fitness levels progress. It is a pretty small rower which is ideal for anyone who lacks space in their home. It can also be easily folded away after use.
This rower is very hard to beat for the price. There are better rowing machines out there with more features, but expect to dig deep into your pockets if you want to buy one.
For the average person, or anyone who wants to start rowing as an exercise, the Stamina Trac Body Glider 1050 is going to be more than suitable.
