Made in America
Each rowing machine is proudly handcrafted in the United States in our production facility located in Warren, Rhode Island. All machines are constructed with Verified Sustainable Hardwood, sourced from replenishable forests located in the Appalachian Mountain region of the Eastern United States.
WaterRower’s unique WaterFlywheel mimics the dynamic resistance of a boat gliding across the water, while providing a soothing wave-like sound. Just like rowing on water, resistance increases as your speed and intensity increases. You choose your own pace and enjoy the power of water without getting wet.
Frame and Monorail
Attractive enough to keep in your living room, the WaterRower GX combines a Premium Ash hardwood from sustainably-harvested regions of the Appalachian Forest with a sleek aluminum monorail and enclosed water tank.

WaterRower Working 84% of the Muscle Mass
more than any other exercise, rowing recruits all major muscle groups.
WaterRower Maximize Gain, Minimize Time
rowing can burn in excess of 1000 calories per hour. Importantly rowing does so with a far lower perceived level of exertion than other aerobic exercises.
WaterRower Joint Friendly
rowing moves the joints through a full range of motion and does so with minimal impact and no body weight on the joints. Making it one of the best exercises for joint pain sufferers.
WaterRower Good for the Posture
Exercise physiologists unanimously agree; what we need to do more of is leg extension, hip hinge and open shoulders type exercise.
WaterRower Relaxing to the Mind
Harmony evolves from a natural balance of elements.
WaterRower GX Home Rower Unique WaterFlywheel
The WaterRower GX Home Rower unique WaterFlywheel design uses an specially formed paddle to cup the moving water, reduce slippage and produce an unrivalled simulation of the benefits of rowing;
Self Regulating Resistance - like rowing, the WaterRower GX Home Rower WaterFlywheel resistance varies proportional to the users intensity. The relationship between resistance and speed responds according “the rule of cubes”. The rule of cubes dictates that a doubling of speed requires an eight fold increase in power. Rule of Cubes
Self Paced - like rowing, the WaterRower GX Home Rower WaterFlywheel does not apply resistance to you, you apply work to it; you are the engine. By the “rule of cubes”, the amount of work you apply dictates the speed at which you row. From a gentle paddle to a “give it your all” workout, you are in control.
Even Stroke - like rowing, the WaterRower GX Home Rower WaterFlywheel uses a relatively slow-moving heavy mass to generate a smooth uniform load throughout the stroke. Air resistance machines, by comparison, tend to be jerky, jarring, and uneven, fading as the resistance is overcome.
Fluid Connection - like rowing, the WaterRower GX Home Rower WaterFlywheel creates a fluid connection between rower and water using a simple immersed paddle. There is no solid mechanical connection, instead the contact between the paddle face and the water acts to dampen out any mechanical feel. Because the WaterRower GX Home Rower has a patented Water Flywheel it uses the same physical dynamics as rowing, its operation is equally as peaceful. Simply pull the handle and you are greeted with the sound of surging water. The noise, while not silent, is soothing to the ears and is far from intrusive on the WaterRower GX Home Rower.
