Evolution of the classic design
Rowing Machine Classic
The First Design
The WaterRower was invented in 1988 by John Duke, engineer and USA national-level rower. His design followed 2 principles: First, replicating real rowing experiences, like resistance, sound and physical benefits. Next, ensuring the machine’s aesthetic compliments interior furnishing, for users to have a welcoming emotional connection, as is common with favored furniture and art.
The Water Tank
The WaterRower’s most important feature is its water tank and how it works: The WaterRower’s unique WaterFlywheel design uses a specially formed paddle to cup the moving water, reduce slippage and produce an unrivalled simulation of the benefits of rowing.
The WaterRower footboard offers the highest level of flexibility to support an optimal rowing position. The ergonomic foot pads and straps are both individually adjustable, guaranteeing maximum comfort.
When not in use, the Original Series WaterRower can be stood upright for space-saving storage, occupying no more space than a chair. Rubber dolly wheels allow for easy maneuvering around the home or studio. The WaterRower’s center of gravity lies in its water tank which enables you to effortlessly lift it at the rail-end. In any position, the water remains safely in the tank.
