Water rowing machines are designed to give you an even more realistic rowing experience- so when you use the machine it feels and sounds like rowing on water. This is because the resistance in the machine is created by water and not air or magnets like on other rowing machines.
WaterRower is the producer of these rowing machines: using real water technology to power their machines and combining this with amazing design. The WaterRower machines come in a variety of different finishes to suit your home and tastes. The water rowing machines are towards the higher end of pricing for rowing machines, however, this is reflected in their great performance and gorgeous looks.

This is the entry-level WaterRower offered for the home and its sleek ash wood and aluminium frame is like no other rowing machine you may have seen. The innovative rowing action using the WaterRower WaterFlywheel takes your rowing experience to another level. Making it feel and sound like you are gliding along on the river but all from the comfort of your own home. Each stroke churns the water in the rower, mimicking the physiological experience of rowing on water. This means that as with rowing on a river, the harder you pull on the machine, the harder you have to work to overcome water resistance.
The LED monitor gives all the feedback you need to gauge your workout progress- stroke rate, intensity, total number of strokes, rowing duration, and distance. The footpads are adjustable for optimum foot placement and comfort. The A1 Rowing Machine has guide wheels for easy positioning and can be stored upright when not in use.
Users of the A1 WaterRower have this to say:
“In use the A1 is excellent. There is some noise from the seat rails but the nylon straps and plastic pulleys are silent and the main noise is generated by the water sloshing around in the tank.”
“Three years after buying it, I’m still very satisfied with my water-rower.”
The WaterRower Classic is the next level up from this brand. The price varies depending on the type of wood finish you want to combine with your home aesthetic. The WaterRower Classic is a step up from the A1 as it has a dual rail support for the seat that gives you more stability, smooth strokes and hardly any noise apart from the water in the WaterFlywheel. The Classic also comes with a more advanced S4 performance monitor that provides more data options as you complete your workout.
Users of the Classic say:
“This is a good looking, solid piece of well-crafted equipment. It is without doubt expensive… there is no getting away from that! However, it is an absolute joy to use.”
“Very pleased with this machine, it’s beautifully made, and a pleasure to use. There’s a joy in its operation that comes from the swooshing water that is almost relaxing.”
The WaterRower Classic comes in a number of different wood finishes including ash, walnut and cherry. Take a look at all the options on Amazon now!
