Sticking to a daily exercise routine takes some serious self discipline, but it’s a whole lot easier when you have plenty of variety in your daily workout. That’s where this sleek home gym machine, the SkiErg, comes in.
How It Works
The SkiErg builds your strength and endurance using a pulley weight system that mimics the motions of Nordic skiing. The standing machine works similarly to a rowing machine, but focuses more on the downward thrust and upper body strength required for polling. It’s one of the toughest workouts out there, but it takes up less floor space than your standard home gym equipment.
Compact and Lightweight
The SkiErg can be mounted to a wall or to the optional floor stand, so it takes up very little floor space when compared to other home gym equipment like a rowing machine or elliptical. The wall mounted width and depth is just 19 by 16 inches. The entire SkiErg also weighs just under 61 pounds so you won’t need movers to get this machine into your home or apartment.
Why Customers Love It
The SkiErg is quickly becoming a favorite workout of Amazon shoppers who gave it an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars. Customers loved that they got a serious high intensity cardio workout that targeted their traps and triceps. Most reviews mentioned how challenging they found this machine, but how much they loved the results. Several customers noticed they shed inches and build muscle.
