The resistance system is a core feature of rowers. Depending on the chosen system, the rowing motion can be regular and even or similar to rowing in nature , where the resistance varies depending on the pulling force. Accessories such as a training computer with training programmes, a heart rate meter, a USB/PC port as well as transport wheels make for a more comfortable and effective training and contribute to positive ratings
High stability depends on the construction of the frame, its weight and the floor space of the machine. The more stable the rower, the higher the max. user weight and the more durable the machine. Rowing machines with good stability stand more safely during intensive training with vigorous strokes.
The interaction of resistance system, running rails, seat castors, pulling rope and frame construction is extremely important for the motion sequence. A rowing machine with a smooth motion sequence provides extra joint-friendly training and increases muscle activity.

WaterRower rowing machine with water resistance

Quiet and extremely effective - just like real rowing!

  • Complete full body training excercise all large muscle groups
  • Timeless, engaging and award-winning Designed for commerical gym use

Rowing with water resistance

The core of the WaterRower rowing machine is the water tank with the patented ergonomically formed water paddle. Based on rowing in nature you can feel in each row a soft and extremely realistic pull. The intensity is increased the harder you pull.


S4 performance monitor

The S4-performance monitor was especially designed with rowing training in mind. It clearly shows all important training data: Amount of rows, Total Time and per 500m/2.000m, Watts, Calories burnt, Distance, Zone training and more. You can set your individual rowing workout through the selection function.


Confortable sliding seat

The ergonomically formed seat slides almost silently over the two rails during training, thanks to the ballbearing rollers made out of wear-free plastic. Optionally you can upgrade the seat with the WaterRower gel seat cover.


Foot pads just like in a rowboat

The foot pads, fully made out of durable wood, can be adjusted to perfectly fit your shoe size. The adjustment straps provide a secure hold during your rowing workout. Your foot pads are located next to each other for the optimal training position.


Massive rails

Even tall people can comfortably train on a WaterRower rowing machine thanks to the long slide rails. When needed there are also wooden frames in XL size available for users over 2m tall. Don't hesitate to contact us if you want these rails.


Storage space taking up only 50cm x 56cm

The WaterRower rowering machine can be space savingly stored away. The rowing machine can just be stood up out of the way. That decreases the space dimensions of the WaterRower to 50cm x 56cm between training sessions - a big advantage for use at home.

WaterRower Oak rowing machine

The WaterRower Oak combines quality, noble design, natural materials and sustainable production. It is hand-made with the up-most care and attention to detail. This fitness machine fits perfectly in every living space with its attractive, timeless design. Rowing on the WaterRower optimally combines strength and cardio training. The training resistance is produced through the natural element of water. The WaterRower Oak rowing machine is produced so durable that it can be used for professional needs in gyms and public institutions.

Advantages of water resistance

Experience an authentic rowing feeling with water resistance. The rowing movement is faithfully simulated just like in nature. When the paddle moves in the water tank you can feel the water element and even hear the queit splashing of water – a pleasant sound that also relaxes the senses.

The rowing movement is comfortable and even, without overloading the spine. Just like "real" rowing the resistance is automatically adjusts by how hard you pull in your row: increasing your power will increase the resistance. So you decide the intensity through your actions, without the need to change a setting on a training computer at any time.
