The Rower | Ergatta

Artfully designed

Backed by over 30 years of American handcrafted tradition, using premium Appalachian hardwoods with longevity, dimensional stability, and appealing aesthetics.

Smooth and Natural

Feel like you’re on the water with the glide of each nearly-silent stroke. Both rowers go easy on the back with evenly-distributed, dynamically-adjusting resistance. Fill once & done – minimal maintenance required.

Why water resistance?
Easy on the back

Resistance is evenly distributed throughout the stroke, putting less strain on your back and making your core and arms pick up more of the work.


No need to add or remove water. Resistance adjusts based on your input. More effort meets more resistance, like paddling in the water.

Quiet and soothing

No mechanical sound or feel; no slippage or catching like some electromagnetic or air-based rowers; and no problem for sleeping babies in the next room.


The original, uniquely-elegant design made for living spaces, home offices, bedrooms, or wherever you need a quick full-body workout.

Handcrafted with the highest-quality cherrywood with beautiful red undertones, sealed with dark stain overcoats to protect against sweat.

Extended rails support people up to 6’8” while contoured cut-outs grips make for easy handling.

Transform any nook or cranny of your living space into an exercise area with a lightweight rower weighing only 40 pounds.

Handcrafted locally-sourced oak wood is sealed with a clear coat to let its natural wood grains pop while locking out sweat.

Shorter overall length makes storing in closets or under short ceilings simple while supporting people up to 6’4”.

Small Footprint

About 2’ x 2’ in storage and 7’ x 2’ in use, both rowers store in the space of a barstool and can be easily wheeled around by one person. No additional hardware or drilling necessary.

Handmade in the USA

Our rowers are made in partnership with WaterRower, the leader in water-based rowing machines for over 30 years.

The Press
"Elegant Furniture"

"It looks more like an elegant piece of furniture than something usually found on the cardio floor"


"The sleek wooden look makes it a worthy centerpiece of any room"


"Its show-stopping cherry wood frame makes it a timeless piece for any home gym – and room”

Stands the test of time

The water tank is sealed; fill it once with no need to change. Just drop in our purification tablets twice a year — we’ll remind you. 


Both the Ergatta Rower and Ergatta Lite are outfitted with the same size touchscreen, offer access to Ergatta’s complete game-based experience, and support Apple Watch, Strava, headphones, and heart rate sensors.


How easy is it to move and store?

The rowers are designed to be easily moved and stored by a single person with ease. The rower is maneuverable with 2 base wheels, and easily folds and stands up to store away after every use, if desired.

What maintenance is required?

Ergatta rowers are very low maintenance. Water in the tank remains permanently clear with provided purification tablets, and never needs to be changed. Care for your rower by wiping off sweat after workouts.

How loud is the rower?

The quiet, water-based whooshing sound won’t wake housemates up, nor bother neighbors living above or below you.

What floor types are safe with Ergatta?

The rower is safe for all floor types, including hardwood and carpet. Some members prefer to use a mat to catch sweat, but this is optional.

Is Ergatta available in other colors?

Ergatta rowers are available in classic cherry wood, finished with a darker stain, or in a light-colored oak wood with a bright gloss finish to meet all home aesthetics.
