Believe it or not, rowing is a full-body workout that engages 86 percent of your muscles, in addition to the cardio benefits you’ll be getting as you put in work. It’s also a great option on the days when you want a quick, challenging workout (since you can control the amount of resistance used), or for the days when you need to sweat your sorrows away with a long, steady rowing session.
If a space limit has kept you from adding a row machine to your home gym, we’ve got news for you: Foldable rowing machines exist. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best foldable rowing machines that will power you through your workouts—without taking up much room.
