The WaterRower A1 home rowing machine has been designed to mimic the movement of a boat over water and bring you a real rowing experience in the comfort of your own home. Thanks to a unique mono-rail the machine encourages natural and fluid motion and helps practice good rowing technique. Natural resistance is delivered by the water in the sealed tank, and the console display will provide you with feedback on stroke rate, the total number of strokes, rowing duration, distance, intensity and more. The rowing machine has been handcrafted from solid ash wood and features pivoting footplates with adjustable straps. It also can be folded up vertically for easier storage when not in use and has transportation wheels.
From the Manufacturer
WaterRower A1 Home
The newest edition to the WaterRower range. The A1 Home is crafted from solid Ash and powder-coated aluminium.
The Ultimate In-Home Exercise Equipment
Total body workout
A single stroke on the WaterRower A1 Home recruits every large muscle group in the body (84% of total muscle mass.) This total body workout builds lean muscle and burns calories at a rate up to, and even in excess of, 1000 cals / hour.
Unlike the mechanical feeling of fan and magnetic rowing machines, a WaterRower harnesses the power of water to provide a smooth and even resistance. Each stroke on a WaterRower churns the paddle on its unique WaterFlywheel. The result? A workout that feels and sounds just like rowing in a boat, and one that is unrivaled in replicating not only the physiological dynamics of rowing, but also the aesthetic pleasure.
As with rowing in a boat, resistance on a WaterRower is self-regulating. No need for artificial adjustment, resistance on a WaterRower is 100% natural, the harder you pull the greater the resistance. Thus a WaterRower is suitable for any user, from a total beginner though to an Olympic Champion rower.
A further benefit of the WaterFlywheel is the minimal strain that is put on joints and the lower back. Free from the impact and jarring that come with many other forms of cardiovascular exercise, a WaterRower is often used as a training tool for those rehabilitating from injury.
Designed for life
The WaterRower A1 Home has been designed to fit seamlessly into the home environment. In contrast to traditional exercise equipment, the handsome looks of the WaterRower mean that it compliments the decor of almost any room in the house.
As with all WaterRowers, when not in use the A1 Home can be folded up vertically for space saving storage. Transportation guide wheels on the front of the the machine allow for the Classic to be easily maneuvered around the home.
Originally designed for use in commercial fitness studios; the WaterRower A1 Home differs from the rest of the WaterRower range in that it has an aluminium mono-rail supporting the seat. This means that the A1 Home has a slightly smaller in-use footprint than other WaterRowers, however the trade off for this is that the seat action is not as smooth and stable as it is on a dual rail WaterRower. The entry level machine in the WaterRower range, the A1 Home is built to the same high quality long associated with the WaterRower brand, and is a commercial gym grade rowing machine at a competitive price.

The water-rower is unlike most other rowing machines in that it is very handsome to look at. It's going to sit in your living room (or where ever) and the wooden finish and design make it much easier on the eye than the usual lots of metal and white plastic.
The water-rower is also very different in that you're not pulling against cogs or chains, but a tub of water. So the action is *very* smooth, and the sound is very pleasant. The action is much less snatchy than most home rowers. Overall it's very easy to use and this encourages me to use it more often.
When not in use the waterrower can be stored upright, so although it is very long you could stand it on end behind a door to tuck it away.
Unlike many rowing machines, the waterrower doesn't use an external power source so you don't have to plug it into the mains. (That always drives me mad, that my exercise bike needs to draw power yet I'm pedalling away producing loads of the stuff!). The only power supply needed for the waterrower are batteries for its monitor.
Downsides: the monitor on mine (a type III a think) has a liquid crystal display which is hard to see in bright sunlight and impossible to see in dim lighting.Read more ›
The A1 is delivered in two boxes, both of which are reasonably sized and neither of which are heavy. It would be easy enough to transport these to an upstairs room if required. Assembly is easy enough, but make sure you've got a spare 5mm allen key, only one is provided but two are required to tighten each bolt. I found the instructions clear and comprehensible. A siphon is provided to fill the tank but it's a fragile thing and mine seemed to have leak meaning that I had to manually pump in the water. I'd recommend allowing an hour to set up and fill.
In use the A1 is excellent. There is some noise from the seat rails but the nylon straps and plastic pulleys are silent and the main noise is generated by the water sloshing around in the tank. The seat and handle are both far more comfortable than the equivalent Concept2 machine which I've used extensively at various gyms over the years. The action is much smoother than a Concept2, too.Read more ›
Rowing machines are known to use more of the body's muscles than any other piece of gym cardio equipment and that is why I bought the Water rower, but the thing that sets this rower apart, is the refinement and quietness of the machine. It took me an hour to put together and fill the tank to the level required and then that was it.
Sit down and row at your intensity and actually enjoy it!!! Apart from the water slushing around the tank( which is very pleasant ) there is virtually no noise . Then just stand it up, using the 'dolly' wheels and put it against the wall, out of the way.
I never thought that a price if gun equipment, made of wood and using water as a form if resistance could be so 'perfect' but it is. Recommended.
The rumble of seat wheels along the monorail is quite loud so it's difficult to hear the swish of paddle through water and I can't really see the water anyway as mine arrived with a tinted plastic tank.
You can stand it up for storage but check your ceiling height as it's long.
Finally, it sits on non-adjustable feet so if you have uneven floors you'll need all sorts of chocks etc. to get it level.
It's a shame that, for the cost, the monitor isn't better.
