The Ergatta Rower
I can't believe I like it this much.

Because of a foot injury, I was forced to buy a rower as my cardio training. Traditionally, I hate ALL cardio and would only do it when forcing myself. Because of my injury, I gained almost 40 lbs and had to do something. After trying several types of machines, I enjoyed the feel of a water rower the most, so went that route. It was okay at best, but yet another mind numbing cardio workout that was a slog.

Buying the Ergatta upgrade was the best money I've spent in years. I always avoided this type of thing as I don't like watching a screen where people yell at me and try to make me die in a puddle of sweat. Ergatta was a really nice surprise. Not only are there programs that exactly suit my goals, but the system adjusts to my fitness level. I always feel pushed without feeling beaten. I've grown to really love it in a short amount of time.

If you had told me that I would wake up on cardio days looking forward to my workout, I would have laughed at you. But that's exactly happens now. I not only can't wait for my rowing days, but I often jump on on off days too. In the short time I've had my Ergatta, I have already noticed an improvement in both endurance and strength. I'd highly recommend this to anyone even remotely interested!!!

I look forward to getting on my rower - Every. Single. Day.

I work a distance from my home where my rower lives and have to spend a few days a week away. Part of what pulls me back to my home is the rower! My partner, who is an avid outdoors athlete, has also gotten the rowing bug. He has added this to his daily fitness routine. I have two friends that I may have convinced to own one too. I love the gamification, the milestones, the live races, the competitive nature - all on top of a really great full body workout. It is also very meditative, I find that if I am having a stressful day I can jump on the rower for 10 minutes and find that readjustment that I needed. Life is better with my rower!

Love the smooth water

I just love my rower. It's smooth, quiet, and the swooshing water is so calming.

The whole package, beautiful to look at, smooth comfortable row and wonderful to hear.

I love my Ergatta. I’ve never been one to exercise regularly. I’ve always viewed exercise as a chore to be accomplished so I could do other things. Not anymore. Each morning I get out of bed looking forward to my time on the rower. I love the motion of rowing and the sound of the water rushing with each stoke is mediative. I get into the zone and just keep rowing. I’m not looking for a quick sprint workout, I’m putting in 45-75 minutes a day, pushing myself to get faster and achieve greater distances in the same amount of time. The programs on the screen are great for challenging me. I “have to” get all the points or make all the levels. If I don’t make it on the first try, the next day I’m back at it until I can make it. If you have a competitive streak, even it if is just competing against yourself, the programs will keep you going. If you’re thinking about it, go for it. It is by far the best piece of exercise equipment I’ve ever owned.

Worth Every Penny, Don’t Question It

I’ve wanted a quality rower for years and kept putting it off because of price, that was a mistake. The Ergatta is easy to assemble, impressive in appearance, and most importantly is a ton of fun to use. I put 40k meters on it within the first 14 days and doubled to 80k in the next 14 days. Pleasantly simple interface, a nice variety of workouts, and updated rankings to add a nice competitive flavor. *Customer support is also top notch* If you don’t have one already, what are you waiting for?

Ergatta makes rowing fun

Beautiful machine that makes rowing interesting and fun. Love the smart features that take the guess work out of my workouts. A worthwhile investment.

I've never rowed before this, but always had trouble staying motivated with working out. We spent extra on Ergatta hoping the game based features would be motivating for me and I was right! I feel like I can do a 15 minute workout and still have accomplished something. The rower itself is great (although I have nothing else to compare it too), but the games and races are even better.

Best gym equipment I've ever owned

I love my Ergatta rower! It is definitely the best piece of home gym equipment I have ever owned! I love the programs - they are very engaging and fun, keeping me motivated day after day. The overall body workout as well as the cardiovascular effects are wonderful.

The Ergatta Rower

I was a bit hesitant to order my rower because I wasn't sure I'd stick with it. I'm into my second month, and I've slowly worked my way into a routine. I'm really enjoying it. The gaming and competition portion really helps keep my attention and motivates me. One of the most impressive aspects was how easy it was to set up. I did it by myself in 15 - 20 minutes. The instructions were very clear. If I had one tiny suggestion, it would be to make it easier to tell which side of the screen the USB plugs into. I initially had it plugged on the wrong side, but a quick google search solved my issue.

The rowing machine workout is superb and the Ergatta service keeps it interesting

Perfect for postpartum

We have had our machine for almost two years and I am finally getting around to trying it myself. I wish I had not waited so long. I have been enjoying the full body workout - perfect for postpartum.

I love that the software is constantly improving. Makes me excited to get back on it and see what's new.

I’m not a big fan of exercise but the gamification, easy explanations and programs to get me started were amazing. I also love the relaxation of free rows in beautiful places.

Love the gamification

My husband and I both love the gamification and UX! We have used peloton, live classes, and regular gold old gym diy, but the gamification is amazing!

I like the meteor game to keep me going in short goals so I dont realize how much time has passed.

Love This Machine

Love it - had it for about six weeks. Replaced my Expresso bike with this and it's even better. I get a whole body workout, races, competitions, and no instructors yelling at me. I can yell at myself enough - lol. Plus - no joint related pains and I'm getting my upper body involved. My son likes this and is kicking my butt too, so that helps to motivate me.

Accessible for beginners

As a beginner to rowing, I think the app makes this new sport super approachable. I have a hard time staying engaged with workouts but the push program has made it accessible as I'm slowly building up endurance. I worried I might get bored or it might be too hard but I've found that's not the case.

The Ergatta keeps me motivated. It's fun ... and gives me a great workout!!

Great workout!

Easy to accommodate to busy schedule or have a more challenging, longer workout. I hate working out at home but I LOVE the Ergatta!

It has kept me engaged and I can have a hard cardio workout in a few minutes. I have back issues and had to stop cardio workouts, but this has been perfect and leaves my back feeling good and loose.

I have never rowed before, but I am finding this form of exercise to be both soothing and fun. The programs are always engaging, which is surprising since I didn’t think I would be using them. The design of the Ergatta is what first drew me in, and still is. It is hard to look at the machine without sitting down and starting to row.

Very motivating

I’ve never been a big exercise person but the Ergatta interface makes it easy for me to stick with it. I like the game concept. It’s very motivating

It’s engaging and fun. By gamifying working out it keeps you coming back!

For me it is a new workout to incorporate into my walking/running routine. I love it now, but really hoping it will help me stay motivated this winter!

Liked it so much bought a second for beach house!

I think the title says it all. Well made, stands up in corner when not in use, great workout with motivational sets or free rows. My wife is enjoying it also.
