    Pros: Storage, portability, noise level, styling

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lower impact, storage, style
    Cons: difficult to change resistance

    Pros: Great looking, smooth rower. Great customer service.
    Cons: Computer not so fancy.

    Summary: We purchased our WaterRower about a year ago after having used the "Healthrider" type excercise equipment for almost 6 years. We were looking for a change and also for something a little more natural and with a larger range of motion. I did some ... read more

    Pros: Styling, Workmanship, realistic action, soothing sound
    Cons: customer service, foot board

    Summary: Its a very nice machine with attractive styling, an efficient design, realistic rowing action and quality workmanship. The only drawback I have been able to find is the customer service at the manufacturer. I e-mailed them a question about the ... read more

    Summary: I just purchased my new Waterrower Club from waterrowers.com this week. Combined, my wife and I have spent a few hours on it, and we love it. "Why the Waterrower?" is the first question I am asked. I spent a lot of time, like many others, ... read more

  • A top quality rowing simulator

    Dec 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unique, effective, aesthetic design, ideal for home use.
    Cons: Not the standard ergometer for comparing performance with others.

    Summary: I deliberated a great deal before buying a WaterRower - I wanted a home exercise rowing machine and as a ‘once upon a time’ competitive oarsman, I also considered that the performance measurement aspect could become important to me again. The obvious ... read more

  • Not for LARGE people

    Jul 16, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautifully made, very quiet, smooth action, easy storage, looks like house furniture.
    Cons: I'd get pins/needles in my legs/feet, I think the feet are too close together

    Pros: ~Good feel for water resistance~
    Cons: ~Not a chance for a bad set~

    Summary: Sometimes, the mighty St. Johns River is just as relentless as the Atlantic Ocean. Days such as these make it imperative to stay within the confines of your boathouse. Enter the WaterRower. Though I am a great defender of the ever popular ... read more

    Pros: Only exercise machine that is a pleasure in and of itself to use.
    Cons: high price, hardware should be updated (handle, seat, footstraps)

    Summary: It's possible for me to write one of the most technical reviews of the Waterrower (WR) but I want to keep it simple. The WR is twice as enjoyable to use as its nearest competitor (C2). A freind of mine who had never rowed in his life took 5 strokes on ... read more
