Top notch experience

Ergatta just takes the rowing experience up a notch. It makes it addictive and fun! I enjoy the interactive nature of the different programs and the versatility it offers.

The program is fun yet challenging and makes you want to do more. Programs help build your endurance and are easy to follow!

Helpful to older users

As an older beginner it was important for me to learn proper technique at a pace I could handle. Ergatta does that.

We love the fluidity of the Ergatta, it feels like I’m in the boat again!
The platform is also solid and the Goal directed guidance is essential for longevity. So much to look forward to for our whole family.

I’m love the game fixation, ease of hopping on for 5 mins and the structured workouts based on my performance. I can’t wait to recalibrate and see my progress, maybe then I’ll start losing some races!

Gamification keeps rowing fun

It’s a beautiful rower and the gamification keeps it fun. I always look forward to my next session. A huge plus: the ability to easily tuck it into a corner. We have a small house and this feature made getting it possible. It’s changed my fitness life during the pandemic, no exaggeration.

This is the first home workout piece of equipment that I actually look forward to using and feel like after a month in I have only still scratched the surface of what is available.

Rowing is something I never envisioned myself doing and the thought of rowing was quite intimidating. That being said I started the couch to 1k (could be wrong about the distance) and it’s fun, engaging and doable!

I just love how interactive Ergatta has made rowing. absolutely love the visuals and it has helped me a lot to enjoy rowing more.

Hands down the best piece of equipment I've ever owned

This is the first time in my 37 years of life that working out is truly a joy! Working out in a way that is productive for my whole body, that fits into my schedule, that is engaging and enjoyable, and that doesn’t hurt my knees has always eluded me until my Ergatta arrived. It’s hands down the best piece of workout equipment I’ve ever owned. I can sing it’s praises all day long! Highly recommend to any and all!!

The programs are so much fun to work through, and the workouts are very engaging. The equipment quality (including tablet and app) are excellent.

The style of the software ("game") sucks me in. I hate working out but once I get started on the Ergatta I keep at it without issue. I can't wait to get in better shape!

Love everything about Ergatta

Customer Service is excellent and very responsive. The rower itself and the workout features are exactly what we were looking for. We love everything about Ergatta.

The experience has been nothing but positive on every front since I received my machine. Handsome design, high quality construction, ease of use, clever storage solution, high efficiency for a whole body workout, and competition component of the workout experience that I did not anticipate helping to motivate me to keep working out every day. It's fantastic.

Best fitness purchase EVER!

I had been on the fence about buying this for a while. I'd always enjoyed rowing at the gym, but after moving to a more remote area, with a drive to the closest gym a good 45 minutes away and icy winter roads not practical to run on, I figured I needed something to keep me fit during the winter months that I would actually use. Yes, this is more expensive than a basic rower, but it looks GOOD, like a piece of furniture, and it's not tucked away in a cold workout room so it does not get neglected or ignored. And how is the workout? AMAZING. I appreciate the variety of programs to keep it interesting, especially if I'm rowing for longer. The push programs are great, the vortex, open row...I can't even think of an area they could improve on. It went together easily, and I'm on it every day which is more than I can say for any other piece of exercised equipment I've purchased. I mix it up by listening to books on tape, podcasts, or the built in music as I row, and my 15 year old son also is using it to keep his conditioning up during soccer off-season (he prefers the competitive races, pitting him against other rowers). Interestingly, I also have noticed a decrease in the amount of joint stiffness when I wake up, which I'm assuming is the workout helping reduce inflammation. It's worth the price for a full body workout that will keep you challenged, engaged, and coming back for more. No regrets - this is a keeper!

I just love it! I love the gaming option, the Push Programs, races, open rows, and the challenges. It really gets my competitive juices flowing; against myself and against others. I love racking up meters on my total. I look forward to my rowing time every day and feel energized when I'm finished (after I catch my breath!) It works so many muscle groups and gets my heart pumping too!

Workout programs are motivating and challenging. By calibrating to your ability level you are able to gauge your progress and challenge yourself accordingly. With this setup, the workouts challenge you without making you feel discouraged

Beautiful machine

I find the game based system to be so fun and motivating. The actual machine is great to use and beautiful.

I love that it is a full body workout. I love that there are competitive features that allow me to compete with myself or others. I love the laid out plans for improving my performance, but I also love the ability to row at my own pace with beautiful scenery. It is a great feeling to be able to get off the machine after only 15 minutes and be sweating.

Engaging and entertraining

The ergatta experience has been very engaging. I haven't had exercise equipment that can keep me entertained enough to hold my interest for long.

More than just a rower!

I got my Ergatta Rower about two weeks ago and I am so incredibly happy with it. The quality of the machine is incredible. You can tell it is built to last! The movements with the water rower is smooth and is easy on the knees. There are so many games and programs but each one is thought out and with a purpose. I can't express how happy I am with this rower. I can confidently say it is one of the best on the market. Highly recommend!

Great Rowee

Going on 10 months with the rower and I have zero complaints. Beautiful rower and the electronic interface keeps me interested and motivated. Super happy with the money spent.

Couldn't be happier!

I've been interested in rowers for a while now. I looked at the highly-rated concept rowers, but they looked too box-gym to me. The Ergatta is sleek, the interface is informative, and the sound...
I don't want to listen to music while rowing because the sound takes me back to the coast where I grew up. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

An innovative approach to working out

Quick shipping, quality construction, easy setup with good instructions, great user interface with the workout programs and innovative approach with the gamification of workouts. I'm new to rowing; this system has made it easy and entertaining to get started.

The rower and programs are everything as advertised. The number of workouts to choose from is incredible and the software’s ability to teach someone how to row are second to none. I can’t say enough about this system.
