The WaterRower Club is a high-end rowing machine that may be the best in the world. Everything on this rower has been designed with precision, and it even features a handcrafted design – no mass production flaws here.
Solid ash wood makes this rower heavy at 117 pounds, but it’s unmatched in terms of durability, and sound and vibration absorption.
During our WaterRower Club rowing machine review there were a lot of things we liked with this model. In fact, we may never look at another rowing machine the same way again. And the small quirks that we found are so minor, they’re barely worth noting.
- Handcrafted design
- True water rower
- Extremely quiet function
- 5-year warranty
- Very heavy
If you expect to move this rower on your own, you’ll have backaches for days. The good news is that the front of the rower does have wheels, so we recommend tilting it forward with the water flywheel empty when moving it – or ask a friend for help. And this model is pricey, but that comes as part of the handcrafted ash wood construction and the true water rowing experience.
WaterRower Club Rowing Machine Review
Assembly is a snap despite some parts being heavy. Once assembled, you’ll be blown away at the attention to detail with this machine. Utilizing high-strength straps instead of a chain, you’ll notice that operation is extremely quiet – you can even take a phone call when using this machine.
And if you’ve ever watched House of Cards, this is the same exact model you see Frank Underwood using.
Designed to withstand up to 1,000 pounds of user weight, 99.9% of people will be able to use this rower without an issue. The flywheel is filled with water and has two enclosed paddles to provide smooth, quiet, true water resistance.
Without a motor, there are fewer parts that can break.
Paddle faster, and the drag of the paddles will provide you with even more resistance. This limitless resistance allows for unmatched strength building.
Clinically proven to work 84% of your muscle mass, the WaterRower Club can help you build muscle, burn fat and meet your fitness goals.
Monitoring is a strong point of this rower thanks to the Series 4 monitoring system. This system allows for six information and programming windows, quick selection buttons, and displays:
- Stroke rate
- Zone bar
- Heart rate
An optional chest strap allows for heart rate monitoring.
Limited on space? No problem. This rower can be stored upright and has wheels in the front that allow it to be moved from one room to another with ease. The only issue is that it does take quite a bit of strength to flip this rower into the vertical position – a consideration for older users.
Smooth and reliable, the WaterRower is what professional rowers and athletes recommend. This is one of the best water-mimicking rowers on the planet. Period.
If you’re serious about your fitness goals or you’re an avid rower, there are not many rowing machines that can compare to the WaterRower. Even the Concept2 has a difficult time matching the quality of this rower.
