"The interactive games are ingenious...we got more from a 20 minute Ergatta session than we have from a Hydrow or Peloton class."

"Rowing machines are large and pricey and most of them aren’t going to look great in your living room. The new Ergatta Lite is the perfect antidote to this quandary.”

Achieving goals

It’s a gamified workout with someone yelling at me or just watching a distance or clock tick away. Mini goals and focusing the mind to achieve goals is perfect combination

Great experience!

It's been a great experience. Hardware is good, software interface is great, and the community is motivating

My workout future

This is the first time I have found a workout that I love and cannot do without. Down 11 pounds in one month with zero change in diet (other than being more conscience of calories). I’m 59 and this is my workout future.

Reaching goals

The gamification takes the mind off the pain/discomfort and makes you reach goals.

Excellent Rower!

Owned it for about three months and have loved every day that I use it. The rower feels very natural and really works your body when you get into it! Highly recommend to anyone with the means and looking for an excellent home workout!

Best purchase ever!

If you’re thinking about purchasing a piece of work out equipment, buy the Ergatta! It engages 85% of your body with no stress to the joints which translates to wanting to do daily workouts. The music options are relevant. You can’t stream TV on here, but wouldn’t want to with the engaging variety of games programs it offers. I lost 14 pounds in two weeks doing a 10-15 minute workout. In the month we’ve had it, I’ve been hiking in the woods and can feel the difference in my lung capacity. The machine is beautiful to look at and so addictive I find myself wanting to go home just to work out. The husband and 15 y/o daughter are hooked, too. Well done Ergatta!!

Also, if you question the high-rise kit, it’s great for the getting back up after a work out. The mat is normal. The gloves didn’t work for my small hands.

Day 29

Still like it. Feel good after nice pathway to better health. Can feel the improvement.

Fun and fulfilling workout

I have the Ergatta now for about 3 months and I love it, I do a lot of cycling and the Ergatta helps me strengthen my legs and my upper body


The customer service is exceptional and the build quality of this machine is outstanding! You deserve a 12+

Love it!

Our family loves our new rower! its a great product with motivating workouts, or even just a free row in locales from all over the world. the Lite works great in our space, and the colors are nice.. works well with our modular couch to move around, would do well in a city apartment too.. the disc needed to be set properly to get it working, but other than that no technical issues

Fun & Effective!

The equipment is beautiful, elegant, and incredibly fun and effective! The customer service from the Ergatta team is outstanding!

Brings competition right to my home

Challenging workouts, plenty of options for active rest days, easy calibration, and brings competition right to my home

Makes time FLY

Love the programs so you feel engaged while working out and makes the time go by faster

Never bored!

I use it every day or at least every other day for 2 months since I got it, not at all tired or bored


I'm addicted! The challenges and push programs are so motivating. I can't believe I ever thought following an instructor was the way to go! I've already shaved 10s off my average split in the first month and can feel improvements in my upper body strength. Everyone should give this a try!

Keeps you engaged

The machine looks good and functions very well. The display really keeps you engaged, making completing a workout a lot easier.


So far I have really enjoyed and appreciated the variety of workouts available! Also it was super easy to set up and easy to fold up and store after use!


it's so fun! it was so easy to put together! and it looks great in my living room

First exercise I have enjoyed!

It is the first exercise equipment I have enjoyed using and have used it on a consistent basis.

Love the design and gamified approach!

I've always enjoyed strength training. Cardio, not so much. The Ergatta makes cardio not just bearable but fun. Huge fan of the design and the gamified approach that keeps you engaged and wanting to come back for more. Wife loves it too!

Most fun exercise!

This is the most fun I've ever had exercising and I'm 61! I'm telling all my friends!

Enhances rowing experience

I told my friends and co-workers about benefits of using a water rower when I bought it a couple of years ago. Ergatta enhances that experience, so it only makes sense.

Easy start

The assembly was straightforward and quick
I was learning within thirty minutes on the rower
Old dogs take a little longer to figure out the program but the gradual progress keeps you engaged
I’m 74 and found it a good way to keep moving in the winter months when hiking is less enjoyable
Plan to row twelve months a year
