For 30 years WaterRower has been combining stylish design, handcrafted workmanship, and ethically sourced material to create the worlds finest rowing simulator.

The WaterRower’s unique Water Flywheel design blends the tranquility of moving water and the rhythm of motion into the world’s finest exercise.

Proudly manufactured in the USA since 1988.

WaterRower believes commitment to quality and the environment is essential to their ethical vision.

Why Water?

The WaterRower’s unique Water Flywheel design uses a specially formed paddle to cup the moving water, reduce slippage and produce an unrivaled simulation of the benefits of rowing.

Self Regulated Resistance – Like rowing, the WaterFlywheel does not apply resistance to you, you apply work to it; you are the engine. By the “rule of cubes”, the amount of work you apply dictates the speed at which you row. From a gentle paddle to a “give it your all” workout, you are in control When rowing, remember, you are the engine. The amount of work you do is dependent on you, not on the machine.

The more work you do, the more resistance/drag you can overcome, and the faster you move. The speed which you can maintain is dependent on the level of work you can maintain and, again, is limited only by you. Row harder and you go faster, row easier and you go slower. This is the self paced nature of the WaterRower and Rowing and allows Anyone to row regardless of age, sex, size of level of fitness.

Instant Resistance – The WaterRower’s unique WaterFlywheel design uses a specially formed paddle to cup the moving water, reduce slippage and produce an unrivaled simulation of the benefits of rowing.

No Jerking or Jarring – There is no jerkiness or jarring which is often associated with conventional mechanical rowing machines making the exercise unpleasant; only smooth even load, kind to the body, and relaxing to the mind.

Smooth Connection – There is no “solid” connection between user and the moving water, simply an immersed paddle which dampens out any detrimental mechanical feel Providing some “give” is essential for accommodating bad or developing technique, lessening the risk of injury.

Even Stroke – A uniform stroke is essential to spreading the work more evenly over the muscle groups, working the muscle groups in proportion to their strength, optimizing exercise benefit while reducing risk of injury.
