This study determined the effectiveness of a 6-wk Total Gym® Row Trainer™ on improving fitness and cardiometabolic risk factors. Sixteen women and men (mean ± SD: age, 27.7 ± 8.8 yrs; weight, 73.3 ± 17.5 kg; percentage body fat, 24.6 ± 6.2%; and VO 2 max, 37.7 ± 5.8 mL·kg-1 ·min-1) completed both a maximal graded exercise test and a 30-min Total Gym® Row Trainer™ exercise session on non-consecutive days. Then, the subjects completed a 6-wk exercise training program (30-min sessions performed 5 times·wk-1) on the Total Gym® Row Trainer™. Heart rate for the 30-min exercise session was 142.5 ± 11.3 beats·min-1 , which was 63.4 ± 13.9% of the subjects' heart rate reserve (HRR). Exercise intensity in METs was 5.8 ± 1.2, which equates to 48.8 ± 14.2% of oxygen uptake reserve (VO 2 R). Total energy expenditure for an exercise session was 222.0 ± 74.3 kcal·session-1. After 6 wk of training, there were significant (P<0.05) improvements in cardiometabolic risk factors, VO 2 max, and muscular fitness. The findings support the use of the Total Gym® Row Trainer™ as an alternative to traditional exercise modalities.
