Introducing the WaterRower For over 20 years WaterRower has been combining stylish design, hand crafted workmanship and ethically sourced materials. Blending the tranquility of moving water and rhythm of motion into the worlds finest rowing simulator.

Fitness Equipment You Can Live With Smooth, Silent, Stylish and Storable: the WaterRower rowing simulator gives you an unrivaled all body workout. The WaterRower comes in a variety of finishes to match any environment from the living room to the gym, taking up minimal space when in use and even less when stored upright.

The Ultimate Cross-Trainer The WaterRower spreads the work uniformly over all muscle groups, making it the most efficient aerobic exercise. Conventional mechanical resistance based rowing machines fatigue the body mechanically, creating a harsh feeling. Other common aerobic exercise equipment such as treadmills, cycles and ellipticals use far less muscle mass, burn fewer calories and generate fewer exercise benefits.

• Burn 1,000 plus calories per hour • Work 84% of your muscles • Target core muscles, strengthen posture, and help to reduce back injuries • Low impact and easy on the body; does not place stress on the joints and its seated position removes weight from ankles, knees and hips

The Perfect Exercise The WaterRower simulates the smooth flowing

nature of rowing a boat and can be used by everyone— Olympic athletes, those looking for a great personal workout, even users in physical rehabilitation. Combining control, strength and stamina in one complete exercise, rowing burns fat and strengthens your cardiovascular system with no detrimental impact or load on your joints. A truly self-regulating exercise, rowing is ideal for any individual, regardless of age, gender or level of fitness. The WaterRower offers you an unrivaled aerobic and muscular workout.

WaterRower... Powered by You

The WaterRower’s unique WaterFlyWheel has been designed to replicate the precise physical dynamics of rowing in a moving boat. In the knowledge that this is the surest way to achieve the physiological benefits and aesthetic pleasure of rowing. Many rowing machines imitate the action of rowing but they do so mechanically, and often lack the natural dynamics experienced when in a boat. The WaterFlyWheel responds to the work applied allowing constant effort through the whole stroke, unlike resistance based machines where effort is high at the beginning of the stroke and fades away as the resistance is overcome.

Self-Regulating Resistance – resistance increases proportional to increases in speed/intensity. Resistance is hence self-determined, as in all natural aerobic exercises, the user choosing their own pace.

Benefits of the WaterRower • An Excellent Investment – The WaterRower in either wood or metal finishes is durable, resists scratching and does not corrode, making it an excellent investment in your health. • Unique WaterFlyWheel – Resistance is proportional to your effort, making the WaterRower suitable for any user. • Award Winning Design – Available in a variety of finishes, the WaterRower compliments any environment. • Low Noise – The WaterRower is designed to be non-intrusive, unlike treadmills and air resistance machines which create a lot of noise. • Minimal Footprint – While catering for even the tallest users, the WaterRower is shorter than other machines and when not in use, it stores upright, taking up the space of a dining room chair. • Low Maintenance – Unlike mechanical chain driven rowers, there is no need to clean air vents or oil chains. Our machines come supported by an extensive warranty. • No Running Costs – No external power required, helping you help the environment • Ethically Produced – Handcrafted in the USA from sustainably managed Appalachian forest hardwoods • S4 Monitor – Designed to be simple to operate with a QuickStart function, while offering those wanting more information a feature rich environment with a wide variety of functions.

Commercial Use The WaterRower has been designed to suit a wide range of commercial gym users from those preparing for a specific competition or challenge, to those looking to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle. This makes WaterRower a popular, multi-faceted addition to any gym. Our rowing machines come in a wide range of durable wood and metal frames that have been designed with a high regard to their aesthetic quality, making them suitable for all types of commercial settings from gyms to spas and luxury hotels. The WaterRower offers an all body exercise with exceptional calorie burn, while requiring minimal floor space and no external power.

Medical Use The WaterRower provides a non-impact, nonload bearing workout ideal for cross-training and rehabilitation. The seated position removes the body weight from knees and ankles and the unique WaterFlyWheel creates a uniform loaded stroke, eliminating the heavy jarring experienced on conventional rowing machines. This makes the WaterRower a popular choice for physiotherapy and sports science practices around the world.

WaterRower in the Media “Provides an all-over workout with minimal impact on the joints. Every major muscle group is used.” “Such is the appeal of these machines that they boast owners as diverse as Steven Spielberg, Princess Anne and Larry Mullen of U2... Unlike other rowing machines which are air resistance, the WaterRower uses, well, water, contained in a large transparent drum... Working on it was a joy because the sound of the water gurgling was really pleasant. I could imagine I was actually doing it, out on the water. It’s stable and easy to store...” By Sir Steven Redgrave (Five Time Olympic Gold Medallist) “Smooth and very comfortable to use, with a nice pick-up. The machine looks great... It’s easy to move around, and even easier to store away - it’s one compact unit and can be stored upright...”

“The undoubted king of the crop is the magnificent WaterRower, a unique rowing machine that manages the unlikely feat of bringing style and substance to this unglamorous field... If general wellbeing and fitness are your targets, this is the perfect machine.”

“If I was going to have one at home this would be it. It looks attractive not like a gym instrument of torture... Rowing, like cross-country skiing, gives an excellent aerobic workout and this machine is the Rolls-Royce of rowers... The WaterRower scored 5 out of 5 in a review of exercise equipment...”

“This is one of the most stylish pieces of home-fitness equipment. The unique WaterFlywheel creates the sound of lapping waves, giving you the impression that you really are on the river... Verdict: excellent...”

“Rowing is one of the best forms of exercise there is and the WaterRower emulates the same physical dynamics as rowing, thus not only giving aerobic benefit but also similar pleasure...”

Endorsements Xeno Muller: Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist I won Olympic gold and silver in the men’s single scull and I will keep rowing for my entire life, to stay healthy and be able to chase down my great grandchildren. Now, I am a husband and a father of four and I love rowing at home. The WaterRower is gentle to row and gives me a full body workout. The quiet sound of the water adds harmony to our family life. Rowing at home is a great way to lead by example for my children to adopt exercise as a life style. When I exercise on the WaterRower I feel rejuvenated physically as well as mentally. I look forward to helping others find the same rowing benefits.

Martin Cross : Olympic Gold Medalist The Holy Grail for all ergo makers is to find a product that some how captures the feel of rowing in a boat: a smooth ‘catch’; a resistance that loads their body just like it does in a boat and a recovery phase that simulates the glide a rower experiences as the boat moves under them. In over twenty-five years of rowing, I’ve tried all that the market has to offer and there’s only one that comes close to capturing the essence of the sport: WaterRower.

Mark Edgar : Physiotherapist; London, England What impressed me most about the WaterRower was the lack of shock loading as the front end of the stroke... the athlete must load biomechanically more efficiently to score well - similar to what is required on the water.

Anna Friel : Actress “It’s great because with Gracie (my daughter) I can’t really get to the gym but with the WaterRower I can just lower it down and have a quick workout while Gracie runs around the house... The WaterRower is a piece of exercise equipment that lasts and actually looks nice. We originally bought it because it’s made from this beautiful wood and fitted into our house in Windsor, but it looks great in LA as well …the added bonus is that if you don’t have a gym it tucks neatly behind a door. I love it.”
