The resistance in WaterRowers is supplied by water, which just really makes sense. Resistance is provided by the WaterFlywheel. It imitates the natural dynamics of a boat moving down the river. The more work you do, then more fluid resistance you have to overcome, which moves the WaterFlywheel faster. The WaterRower is a foot shorter than most other rowing machines making it easy to store. The machine is perfectly quiet too; you supply the heavy breathing and, dare I say it, grunting.
I love the look of the wooden machines and placed against the wall it looks downright sculptural. The price ranges from $1095 for the classic model constructed from ash to $2500 for the stainless steel model. You can purchase one directly from WaterRower.
