Ergatta vs. Aviron
WHY MEMBERS CHOOSE ERGATTA
BEGINNER-FRIENDLY PROGRAMMING

Over 70% of Ergatta members are new to rowing. Our content is designed with beginners in mind. Get access to Coach AI, your personalized rowing coach and form analysis tool, instructional videos, practice drills, and over 50+ hours of beginner content specifically designed to prioritize and encourage safety over compromising form and overexertion.

ELEGANT, COMPACT, AND STORABLE

Ergatta rowers are handcrafted from locally-sourced cherry and oak wood in the USA. The rowers move easily and store vertically in the space of a barstool. Our rowers are designed to fit into your home, both aesthetically and physically. Aviron’s rower is constructed of steel and aluminum.

FULL-ACCESS SUBSCRIPTION

Ergatta will never charge you a subscription to access another subscription. While Aviron charges a membership fee to access other paid memberships, like Netflix and other streaming services, the Ergatta membership fee is dedicated to providing unique content you can’t get anywhere else.

ENGAGING, RESPONSIVE GAMEPLAY

Ergatta’s platform offers thousands of workouts across 9+ categories, including live races, open row, training programs, and instructional videos. However, our bread-and-butter are games! With smooth and responsive controls, engaging game-design, and sleek visuals, you’ll not only have fun, you will develop a lasting fitness habit.

COMMUNITY OF 100,000+ MEMBERS

Interact and compete with the largest online game-based fitness community, with over 100,000 members. Raise money for charities by participating in monthly and annual challenges, add Rivals to compete with and against, and learn from the most supportive members that exist!

NO DECISION FATIGUE

While Ergatta offers 1000s of games, our Push Programs are collections of workouts built around a specific goal and designed by our fitness experts to be completed in sequential order. Take the hard work (and guesswork) out of planning a safe and effective routine.

WORKOUTS THAT ADAPT TO YOU

In traditional fitness classes, everyone gets the same instructions, leaving you to gauge your progress alone. Ergatta’s patented-calibration system adjusts each workout to your unique fitness level - never too easy or too hard - so you stay engaged and challenged in just the right way. As you improve, Ergatta will re-calibrate each instruction, target, and competitor to progress with you.

SMOOTH, NATURAL RESISTANCE

Feel like you’re on the water with the glide of each nearly-silent stroke. Our water-based rowers are easy on the back with evenly-distributed, automatically-adjusting resistance. Fill tank once & done. Minimal maintenance required.

WHY WATER RESISTANCE?
EASY ON THE BACK

Resistance is evenly distributed throughout the stroke, just like on the water. Take strain off your back, knees, and joints, while making your arms and core pick up more of the work.

NO Maintenance

Resistance adjusts with your effort, meaning harder strokes meet more resistance. No need to replace the water, just place a free purification tablet into the basin every 6-12 months.

Nearly silent

No mechanical sound or feel; no slippage or catching like some electromagnetic or air-fan rowers; and no problem for sleeping babies in the next room.
