Lightweight, compact and perfect for small living spaces. Bring home the entire Ergatta experience on a more affordable rower.

Megan V., PT, DPT

"I am a doctor of physical therapy and work in outpatient orthopedics. Throughout the pandemic, physical therapists were deemed “essential employees” and therefore, we remained open and continued treating. In fact, in March of 2020, I contracted Covid-19 from a patient, and I have yet to return to my pre-Covid health status. I am certain consistent rowing will help improve my cardiovascular health, and after a great deal of research, Ergatta is by far the best rower on the market."

Is rowing right for me?

Rowing is a full-body and intensely efficient workout. Indoor rowing is your one-stop-shop for strength and cardio exercise.

  • Full body: Every stroke activates your legs, core, back and arms, firing up 86% of muscles in a single motion.
  • Low impact: Hard work that’s easy on the knees, ankles, and back. Enjoy a sustainable form of exercise you can do for decades without wearing down your joints.
  • Efficient: Achieve your goals in a fraction of the time and burn calories around twice the rate of cycling. Get a real workout in 20 minutes or less.
