GETTING STARTED SERIES
We’ll teach you proper form through a variety of methods - video tutorials, interactive training, and short, accessible workouts.
Features for Rowing Newbies
From “Couch to 1k” to “My first 5k” to “Power to an Hour”, we’ll guide you through your first few months of rowing with programs specifically designed to introduce you to rowing.
Around 40% of our members are completely new to rowing. Compare notes and offer support with them in our Facebook, Reddit and Strava communities.
Natural water resistance is best for beginner rowers because it is evenly distributed throughout the stroke and is easier on the back than electromagnetic or air.
Workouts that adapt to you and evolve with you as you improve
Ergatta's unique calibration system is especially helpful for beginners. After the Getting Started Series and your initial Calibration test, all workout programming will be tailored to your level. As you get the hang of rowing, your profile will automatically recalibrate and adapt your experience to make each target and competitor a fair challenge.
