WaterRower Club Rower Review

Quick Take

Crafted from sustainable American Ash wood and using natural water resistance, the WaterRower Club will add warmth to any home gym. Resistance is provided by the brand’s unique WaterFlywheel which delivers a smooth and challenging enough workout for beginners and advanced rowers alike. At 82.25” long by 22.25” wide, the WaterRower Club is not a small rowing machine. To save space after workouts, however, you can easily store it vertically against a wall. Customer reviews also praise the WaterRower Club for its easy assembly and user-friendly S4 monitor which can store up to 9 workouts.

Our Review

The WaterRower Club is a wood-and-water indoor rower suitable for commercial use. Designed for high-traffic areas such as gyms, studios, and rehab clinics, the WaterRower Club is a sturdy and durable machine. Its frame is crafted from sustainably sourced American Ash wood. With heavy use in mind, other wooden components are finished in a chic rosewood and its black rails are designed to prevent scuffing. It is hand finished with Danish Oil and urethane for extra protection.


The WaterRower Club features the brand’s unique WaterFlywheel to replicate the natural feel of rowing on water. A specially formed paddle cups the moving water in the tank, so not only will it feel like the real deal, but you’ll also hear the satisfying sound of splashing water as you row. To keep you motivated, the WaterRower Club provides plenty of workout feedback via its S4 monitor. Workout data displayed includes time, distance, speed/intensity, stroke rate and heart rate (if you purchase the optional heart-rate sensor and kit separately). Customers have noted how easy it is to use the monitor and program personal workouts. Although the S4 doesn’t feature any preset programs, it’s capable of storing up to 9 time or distance workouts of your own design.
