Sailing sport at home
Achieve the fitness of a racing grinder - without having to deny yourself the element of water.
In sailing it is the grinder's task to transform wind into propulsion by hoisting the sails as quickly as possible. Grinders do the backbreaking work on bord and are, unquestionably, high-performance athletes. Using maximum physical strength and stamina, grinders hoist the sails by cranking the winches. Sailors today do this by performing a classic rotating or grinding movement.
The seat can be hooked in on both sides in 3 different positions each. The WaterGrinder is set on 2 powder-coated steel arms, curved in such a way that even wheelchair users can train at the machine.
The hand pedals can be set in various height positions which allows you to further adjust the resistance. The smaller the rotation the higher the intensity.
The paddle is shaped ergonomically and pushes the water extremely efficiently, thanks to its concave surface. Water resistance can be self-determined ie. within each movement, resistance adapts to strength input.
The G1 performance monitor can be swung to each side while a balance sensor recognises its position. This allows for training on each side of the machine. The buttons function on a touch-screen principle.
The Water Tank
The WaterGrinder resistance is generated in the water tank. No presetting is necessary to create the unique resistance.
If you turn slowly, the resistance is low. If the rotation speed is increased, the resistance becomes more intense.
With Water Resistance
Condition, strength, endurance
Stationary bikes, eliptical trainers and treadmills are all highly effective exercise machines, yet they only condition your cardiovascular system through your lower body. All cardio workouts contain muscular and body-shaping components, but there is a clear deficit in upper body training. Nohrd WaterGrinder will compensate this to a whole new extent by working your arms, shoulders, chest and abs, as well as your entire back. Your upper body joints and spine are provided the necessary movement and stress stimuli necessary for building daily resilience.
Nohrd WaterGrinder takes advantage of this factor and provides you with quick muscular fatigue by initiating endurance training through your arms, granting you extremely efficient and short training sessions. Nohrd WaterGrinder conditions strength and endurance simultaneously.
The hand pedals can be set in 8 different positions. The touch-screen can be swiveled to either side and easily read from both settings.
G1 performance monitor
The G1 performance monitor can be swung to either side, while a balance sensor recognises its position. This allows for training on each side of the machine. The buttons function on a touch-screen principle.
The WaterGrinder G1 performance monitor provides you with an extensive range of training possibilities:
- Time / Distance-Training
- Determine the time or distance you want to master and concentrate solely on reaching your goal.
- Versatility Drill-Training
- Choose this program for varying and unpredictable training stimuli. Determine your workout-focus which will then be completed by constant variation.
- Racing Drill-Training
- Select the racing drill function and go up against either a virtual or real opponent, hoisting sails (you set how many) as fast as possible. This is about winning or losing; again, another training-focus: high intensity guaranteed!
Depending on the program you will receive the following parameters: rotational speed, pulse rate, time, distance, performance in watt, ie calories/hour.
