Old Man Winter doesn’t seem to have much quit in him this year. Snow storm upon snow storm continues to dump on many western resorts, despite what the calendar says. In fact, many ski resorts have opened back up for a day or two of fresh tracks with some yet to even close. However, in spite of all of this spring snow, it is still technically the off season for many of us skiers and riders. With June here and Father’s Day right around the corner, it is time to remember the guy who taught you how to ski pow. They guy who carried all you and your siblings gear when you were young despite only having two hands. The man that bought you all of those hot chocolates and maybe even your first apres-ski beer when you became of age. Yup, a dad like this deserves something special and with skiing’s off season, for the most part, here it is time to get your father the ultimate gift to help him stay in shape so that he is ready to shred with you when the flakes start flying again (who knows, maybe as early as the Fourth of July).
That is where the NordicTrack RW900 Rower comes into play. This is not your grandfather’s NordicTrack but, it can and will be your father’s. Remember the old NordicTrack? Complete with wooden skis and a pulley system you could schuss your way to nowhere for hours on end. Boy has NordicTrack come a long way. Since then, they have created a full line of equipment that offers the most advanced, in home training system on the market. All of these machines are fantastic but none offers more consistent, full body workouts than the RW900 Rower.
Buttery smooth, this rower is like the spawn of a Viking ship and a Peloton. The iFit membership, which is free for the first year, can be easily viewed on the rower’s 22” LCD screen and will allow your dad to train with some of the world’s best trainers. The likes of two time Olympic gold medalist Susan Francia and others will take him from the studio to far off locations including the newly filmed Lake Bled in Slovenia and the River Thames in England. However, it doesn’t stop there. Variety is the key to successful ski and snowboard training and routines can be chosen that incorporate boot camp, cross training and HIIT training all while the auto resistance feature on the rower adjusts to the instructor’s cues. And since it folds up like a pocket knife it will barely take up any room in your parent’s crib ultimately keeping mom happy as well.
Boredom is simply not an option for your dad’s off season training. If pops is looking to get jacked this off season and doesn’t always have the time to get to the gym this rower is for him. It’s more than just a workout but rather an experience that will keep him inspired and not only maintain his fitness level but improve it so he is ready to go when next winter arrives.
