Rowing machines are a mainstay of most gyms, and nowadays there are even rowing studios where you can try rowing in a boutique-style fitness class. These machines work your legs, your core and (of course) your arms — really, a rowing machine will work your whole body. Pick up the pace to get your heart racing or turn up the resistance to build strength and take it slow. Either way, these machines can be tough.
