Getting your workout in from home is easy, convenient and definitely a time saver. Even so, a hulking exercise machine never looks good inside a home–especially if that home is a small apartment. But Hydrow, the premier rowing workout machine, is beautiful from the inside and out. Hydrow was designed from the ground up by a team whose goal was to create an effective exercise machine that is also elegantly sophisticated. Mission: accomplished. Hydrow is machinery you'll be proud to set up (and show off) in your living room.

There is no more immersive rowing machine available. Hydrow is a state-of-the-art home fitness machine that grants you access to world-class waterways, guidance from the sport’s most elite athletes, health benefits for your entire body, and a knowledgeable community of peers – all from the comfort of your own home. Hydrow was founded by Bruce Smith, a U.S. National Team Rowing Coach and Head of the Charles Regatta winner. Smith's mission is to share the positive impact rowing can have on the body and mind.

Rowing, which blends strength and cardio exercise, delivers a workout that hits 86 percent of your body's major muscle groups. Rowing also provides a welcome contrast to your basic running and biking routine and is easier on your joints. So, if you are looking to upgrade your cross-training regimen, Hydrow is the answer.

Hydrow completely re-engineered the rowing machine with its patented technology; each stroke provides vivid feedback that will make you feel as though you're actually out on open water. Its fully immersive technology transforms workouts into experiences that feel much more like an adventure than a workout. As a result, Hydrow pushes the body and the mind and functions as an escape from the stress of your day (and your living room).

Hydrow provides more than an increased heart rate, thanks to immersive workouts powered by Live Outdoor Reality and a patented drag mechanism designed to make you feel like you're actually on the water. Each workout is presented from the outdoors, live, from incredible global destinations from Boston and Los Angeles to London and Switzerland.


You'll experience each intensive workout simultaneously with other athletes, each rowing in sync, potentially from thousands of miles away. Moreover, Hydrow's athletes are Olympians, Paralympians, U.S. Rowing team members, and beyond. They’re the best at what they do and will push you to be your best.

Full Body

Rowing works up to 86 percent of your major muscle groups and it’s both a strength and cardio workout, designed to build you up where others break you down. It improves bone density (biking reduces bone density) but has zero impact on your joints. Hydrow complements its rowing workouts with other disciplines, such as yoga, Pilates, strength training, mobility and much more.
