"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.”

Ergatta upgrade

I added the regatta upgrade to my water tower A1 rower. I love it. I fell in love with rowing at orange theory and was looking for something at home. I love all the variations so I am adjust it to the time and my energy level. I like having guided workouts, so I just pick my level and time and boom, zero thinking involved. Plus competing with myself and the others on there really pushes me. Best decision I ever made. I was nervous about buying home gym equipment, but I done ever want to go back to a regular gym again.

Great machine

Love love love the Ergatta Lita. Fun work outs. And well designed machine.

Ergatta Lite
Love the Ergatta Lite

We love our new Ergatta. The games, completions and goals are helpful to keep me excited to get on the rower regularly. The machine stacks up well. The wires can be a little messy and need a little effort to reorganize. No regrets so far!

Loving our rower!

Just as expected. We love the games, and the build quality is excellent. Our dog enjoys the sound of the water too!

Great system!

This is such an awesome piece of equipment. I have a bad knee and am so thankful to get a cardio workout without pain. It’s so functional and has a lot of amazing options to mix up the workout routine!

As great as expected

It works great.
Set up and stand up are quick and easy.
I'm enjoying the variety of rowing challenges and the fantastic data tracking.
Zero regrets.

Enjoyable Cardio

I usually hate cardio because I just am constantly thinking about how difficult it is and how it’s hard to break through that “wall”. But with these workouts, yes it still feels hard but this platforms helps me focus on the goals it presents rather than the difficultly of the workout.


If you are competitive this is the rower for you! I love the games, races, and push programs. I never feel like I’m working out, it’s so much fun

Game changer!

The Ergatta Lite has been an excellent addition to my at home workout set-up. Combined with the Ergatta subscription I can get in a great workout at any time. A huge per is it looks great too!

Best way to work out.

I really enjoy having the workouts to follow, it makes it easier to push myself harder.

Quality machine

Very nice quality machine. Great workout in a short period of time.


I just really love the way it looks. I love the fact that it’s a water rower when using it makes great sound. The app experience is fantastic and I love doing the races.


I am entering my sixth month of using the my water rower with the Ergatta system. It has more than doubled my usage! I feel stronger than ever and my resting heart rate has dropped over 12 beats a minute! I cannot say enough about the entire system, it is fun and a great workout!

Game changer

I have had my Ergatta for about a month now and it’s been a real game changer for my fitness routine. I I look forward to it every day, unlike running, which I dreaded. I also never feel sore or achy afterwards because it’s so low impact. What a game changer this is turning out to be, I am in love.

Best user engagement

I did a lot of research on rowers and had previously owned an air rower. Ergatta has the best type of user engagement with game-style programs.

Love it

Best tower experience ever. Had the concept 2, before this, and it’s night and day with the experience. Makes rowing fun!


I have been looking for a rower for a while and I ended up getting the Ergatta. It is beautiful and looks great in the room. I am really enjoying the water rower as the sound of the water swishing is soothing and not too loud and not silent. The resistance is great and the app is fantastic. It makes it very easy to attach an Apple Watch and headphones and I love doing the races! Very, very happy with my purchase. Customer service has also been friendly and helpful.

This is improving my life

I have not workout like this for a while. Starting from 10 min a day now I’m rowing everyday. If you also have a very tight schedule rowing is for you. It clear your mind and kick your day started.

Love it!

New to rowing. Did quite some search before buying and decided that gamification was my cup of tee compared to coaching only. After almost a month, I believe I made the right choice. Love the pre-populated programs with lots of variety and possibility to connect Apple Watch for heart rate and the live radios in the background. The entire family including two kids all created their accounts (included in my subscription) and love it, too. I can totally recommend to anyone considering a home rowing device.

Good for parents that can’t GET OUT

My husband and I are both in our forties and we were looking for a form of exercise that we could do whenever we want, for a small bit of time, while also working out our entire body. We have two toddlers. We can usually only get a few minutes in at a time on the rower but it’s great for our bodies and it’s meditative for the mind! We could never get to the gym but the rower has made getting “out” into nature so easy! We love the sound of the water!

Love it

Totally new to rowing and I am loving it. I don't think I will ever get bored with all the different options. I can't wait to get better and explore everything. I hope you get the Android AI available soon because I am not so sure about my form and it would be great to be able to use that. This has been one of my best purchases ever and I would recommend it to anyone sitting on the fence about rowing.

Enjoying rowing again.

Previously had a smart rower with magnetic resistance and found I plateaued with it and did not enjoying rowing. Got the Ergatta with hopes of recharging my workout and it has. Enjoy the water resistance and screen provides great motivation and feedback.


The quality is what makes this rower the best you can buy.

What I was hoping for!

Well the gamification is exactly what I was hoping for and the type of exercise this provides is the perfect mix of cardio and "Weight lifting".


The gamification imo works well. Keeps you going without realizing the effort you're putting in.
