About

WaterRower

Widely regarded as the most

realistic simulator of on-water

rowing, WaterRower has been

dedicated to creating rowing

machines of exceptional quality

and design for over 30 years.

The official water rowing machine of

British Rowing; the WaterRower is

suitable for everyone from an elite

athlete to a complete beginner.

Offering a low impact, full-body,

workout, the WaterRower is acclaimed

not only for its exercise benefits,

but also as an outstanding design

innovation. Fusing industry-leading

functionality with stunning aesthetics,

when not in use the WaterRower can be

stood on end for space-saving storage.

At the heart of the WaterRower is

the unique WaterFlywheel, designed

to replicate the feel and sound of a

rowing boat. As with on-water rowing,

resistance on the WaterRower is

naturally controlled by effort, the harder

you pull the greater the resistance.

Hand-built in the USA to ensure quality

and durability, the WaterRower is

available in a range of wooden and

metal frames to suit both home and

commercial fitness environments.

equipment

84%

FULL BODY

WORKOUT

A single

stroke on the

WaterRower

uses every large

muscle group.

84% of total

muscle mass

Indoor rowing is the ideal exercise for

anyone looking to improve their overall

health and fitness. In contrast to other

cardiovascular equipment, rowing is a

total body workout. Each stroke uses

every large muscle group in the body

(84% of total muscle mass), to burn

calories and build strength.

Indoor rowing is suitable for all ages

and fitness levels. The beauty of indoor

rowing is that it is a low impact exercise

that can be done at any effort level.

Resistance is created by how hard the

user rows, giving them total control over

the intensity of their workout. As rowing

is not a weight-bearing exercise minimal

strain is placed on joints or the lower

back.

At maximum intensity, indoor rowing

can burn more than 1000 calories per

hour. Thus, making rowing especially

effective for anyone that is short on time.

The calorie expenditure for 30 minutes

of rowing is often double that of the

equivalent bike or treadmill workout.

Iconic

Design

Inspiration for the

design came from the

sparse elegance of

Shaker furniture.

The WaterRower was invented in

1988 by John Duke, a Yale University

engineer, and USA Rowing National Team

candidate. Mr Duke had two principles

leading his design:

• Firstly, to replicate the experience of

rowing in a boat, aiming to bring the

sound, resistance, and physiological

benefits of rowing to a wider audience.

• Second, to create a piece of “Fitness

Furniture” with an aesthetic that would

complement a residential setting.

Duke’s goal was to create a rowing

machine with which the user has a

welcoming emotional connection, as

they would with a favoured piece of

art or furniture. Central to this was

manufacturing from wood.

Inspiration for the design came from

the sparse elegance of Shaker furniture,

renowned for being beautiful, well-made

objects that could be used in everyday

life. The WaterRower, as with Shaker

furniture, does not have any superfluous

design elements. Every component of the

WaterRower has a precise role to play in

the rowing machines function.

With his design finalised, Mr Duke

set up the WaterRower factory in the

New England state of Rhode Island. A

hub for skilled manufacturing labour

and just a few hours north of the

Appalachian Mountain Range from

which the WaterRower wood is sourced,

Rhode Island remains the home of our

manufacturing operation to this day.

Why

Water?

Unlike the mechanical feeling of fan

and magnetic rowing machines, a

WaterRower harnesses the power of

water to deliver a smooth and even

resistance. Providing a workout that feels

and sounds just like rowing in a boat.

The WaterRower’s unique WaterFlywheel

uses a design patented paddle that

moves through water in the same way

as an oar in a rowing boat. As with on

the water rowing, resistance on the

WaterRower adjusts naturally to match

the user’s intensity. The harder a user

pulls, the greater the resistance they

will feel, without the need for artificial

adjustment or to change the amount of

water in the tank.

01

LOW

IMPACT

Smooth even

resistance places

less impact on the

back and joints

than conventional

rowing machines.

Allowing users to

exercise free from

aches and pains.

02

VIRTUALLY

SILENT

Even at maximum

intensity the

WaterRower will

only emit the

tranquil sound

of moving water.

Ideally suited to

those wanting to

exercise without

disturbing those

around them.

03

SUITABLE FOR

EVERYONE

The WaterRower

self-regulating

resistance makes

it suitable for use

by anyone from a

complete novice to

an Olympic athlete.

04

LOW

MAINTENANCE

The only regular

WaterRower

maintenance

required is to

place a water

purification tablet *

in the water tank

once every 3

months.

*WaterRower provide purification tablets free of charge to all WaterRower owners in the UK (these are requested via www.waterrower.co.uk).

Our Wood

For every

products, 2.5 more

grow in its place.

preservation. Members of AHMI

have been educating landowners

and the public about sound forestry

practices and sustainable harvesting

since its founding in the 1940s.

Every wooden WaterRower is

given life on the lush, verdant

planes of the Appalachian

Mountains in North America.

For almost a century, a thriving

lumber trade has existed in this

region, prized for producing some

of the world’s finest, responsibly

grown, and harvested hardwoods.

Once milled and kiln-dried, the

wood that grows here is lauded for

the remarkable strength, durability,

and grain characteristics unique

to the region. To the north, and at

higher elevations, a dark, humid

evergreen forest of spruce and fir

cloaks the mountains. While further

south, in the lower glades, a more

open broadleaf mix predominates,

including the ash, oak, cherry and

walnut varieties we have used to

make our products for over 30

years.

The special qualities displayed

by the hardwoods grown in this

region are due to the Appalachian

Mountains’ unique ecology. A

fortuitous mix of nutrient-rich soil,

ideal year-round temperatures,

and perfect moisture levels provide

particularly fertile ground for trees

to thrive. The idyllic conditions

allow wood fibres to grow long and

strong, forming rich colours and

characterful grain patterns.

Protecting this hardwood oasis

while supporting the region’s

burgeoning lumber trade has always

been important to WaterRower.

The Appalachian hardwood

manufacturers trade association

(AHMI), of which we ensure all our

suppliers are members, is one of

the few such associations with

a division devoted to forestry,

the advancement of sound

forestry practices and wilderness

In practice, that means for every

Appalachian tree felled to make our

products, 2.5 more grow in its place.

Thanks in part to the modern forest

management techniques employed

by our responsible suppliers, a

billion trees have been added to

the region since 2007, with 300,000

acres of Appalachian forest added

in the past 25 years. That’s nearly 33

acres a day. To put it another way,

more wood than it takes to make

a WaterRower grows back every

second in the mountains.
