The WATERROWER was invented in 1988 by John Duke, a Yale University engineer and USA Rowing National Team candidate. His goal was to create a piece of fitness equipment that replicates the experience of rowing in a boat, bringing the sound, resistance, and physiological benefits to a wider audience. The aesthetic of the machine was also important, with the aim of it being a piece of art or furniture that would complement a residential setting.

This inspiration was taken from the sparse elegance of Shaker furniture, renowned for being beautiful, well-made objects that could be used in everyday life. WATERROWER has continued to uphold this ethos over the past 35+ years, producing what is widely regarded as the most realistic simulator of an on- water rowing experience that can be used.

Product features


Suitable for users of any fitness level, the A1 rowing machine was originally designed for indoor rowing group exercise classes.  Use every large muscle group with a single stroke to burn calories and build strength.  Lightweight and portable, when not in use the A1 rower and can be placed on end for space-saving storage.  Fitted with the A1 Quick-Start Monitor to view key workout data as you row.


At the heart of the A1 is the WaterFlywheel, unique in its replication of on the water rowing.  Choose a workout with the feel, sound, and exercise benefits of real rowing. 


Lightweight and portable, when not in use the A1 WaterRower can be stood on end for space-saving storage. In fact, 3 A1 rowing machines can be stored vertically in the same amount space as one standard indoor bike.  


The intuitive A1 Quick-Start LCD monitor is all you need to track your performance. Displays rowing metrics including distance, 500m split time, and calories. 


Handmade in the USA to ensure quality and durability; the A1 has a 2-year frame, 3-year parts commercial-grade warranty.


The entry-level model in the WaterRower range, there are two primary differences between the A1 and other WaterRower models. Firstly, the A1 has a quick-start LCD monitor that displays key rowing metrics but is less in-depth than the S4 Performance Monitor and Smart Row. Secondly, the A1 seat travels on an aluminium-monorail which is marginally louder than the silent seat action of the dual-rail seat system on other WaterRowers.


Unlike air and magnetic resistance rowing machines, the WaterRower has a smooth even stroke resistance that places minimal strain on joints and the lower back.  


When used at full extension is possible to burn in excess of 1000 calories per hour on the WaterRower.  Indoor rowing uses every large muscle group and recruits both the aerobic and anaerobic system to provide one of the most efficient workouts you can do.  


The unique geometry of the A1 rowing machine makes it easy to row with good technique, even for a beginner rower, and the quality construction provides a natural, fluid connection with every stroke.



Track and analyse your indoor rowing performance with WaterRower Connect.  Be guided by instructor led workouts from the comfort of your home with CITYROW Go.  Get transported to another place with immersive scenery rows and rides on Kinomap.
