Thanks to a series of limited-time Prime Day rowing machine deals, you can now save up to 62% on top models from NordicTrack, Echelon, XTERRA, Circuit Fitness and more. 

Below, we've rounded up a selection of the biggest discounts on some of the best rowing machines money can buy. So, if you're on the hunt for a way to get a comprehensive cardio workout at home, look no further. 

The excellent Echelon Smart Rower, which our fitness writer described as "near-perfect", is now down from $999.99 to its lowest ever price of just $639.99 (a saving of 36%). Meanwhile, fitness equipment royalty NordicTrack is currently offering its smart rower at a $400 discount

Or, if it's a budget option you're after, look no further than the Circuit Fitness Deluxe Foldable Magnetic Rowing Machine, which has seen its price slashed by 62% - now standing at $170.15. 

But why choose a rowing machine? Surely a treadmill or exercise bike is a more traditional way to get your fitness fix at home?

Traditional? Yes. But not necessarily better. You see, where running and cycling are inherently focused on working your legs, a rowing machine workout will engage every major muscle group in your body. They're low impact too, putting less strain on your knees and ankles while still allowing you to crush calories and get a sweat on. 

Several models in this list also have smart features. So, instead of staring at a blank wall while racking up the miles, you can enjoy immersive and engaging follow-along workouts displayed on a crystal clear touchscreen or smart device. If that doesn't kick your at-home fitness routine into gear, nothing will.
