The Hydrow Live Outdoor Reality™ Rower.

Hydrow Indoor Rower

We are thrilled to announce that beginning Spring 2019 we will be carrying a rower that is redefining the indoor rowing experience.

Enter the Hydrow Live Outdoor Reality™ (LOR) Rower, offering live and on-demand workouts from majestic waterways like the Charles River, Hudson River and a myriad of others, led by elite athletes, including rowers from the U.S. National Rowing team. Plus, real-time leaderboards allow you to track how you stack up against other daily rowers across the globe.

“We are taking the extraordinary experience that rowers have cherished for a century and a half on the water and delivering it for the first time to homes everywhere,” said Richard M. Cashin, Olympian and Indoor Rowing World Record holder.

Okay, so it’s a cool, high-tech rower, you’re thinking. But that’s just the start. The attention to detail on the design of this indoor rower is second to none.

“We built a machine that belongs in the living room, not the basement, because we want whole health to be a part of our customer’s daily life,” said Bruce Smith, CEO and Founder of Hydrow by CREW. “An enormous part of this notion of whole health is the emotional lift people experience when they’re part of a team — rowing with Hydrow gives everyone the ability to feel that sense of community and belonging, wherever they are.”


Hydrow perfect for indoor spaces

Learn the top reasons why Gym Source equipment experts feel the innovative Hydrow indoor rower is perfect for any home workout space.

– Live Outdoor Reality (LOR) rowing

Hydrow’s unique LOR capabilities do more than just give you a beautiful backdrop to row to — it literally transports users to the water, leveraging visuals, sounds and movement to create a seamless, immersive experience.

– Touchscreen Monitor

Hydrow’s HD sweat- and dust-resistant touchscreen monitor gives you both an in-boat POV, as well as panoramic view of the waterways in different locations, while HiFi speakers deliver authentic sounds from your row — all from the comfort and accessibility of your home fitness space.

– Smooth Rowing Strokes

No one likes using a machine that’s uncomfortable. The cutting-edge, industrial-grade webbed connection creates a smooth and efficient rowing experience.

– Digital Adjustable Resistance

With the simple touch of a screen, you can change your workout from feeling like you’re on a traditional indoor rower to a single scull, or even an eight person boat. The versatility of this machine makes it the perfect piece for a home gym that any family member can benefit from.

– Quiet Resistance Mechanism

The typical chain and fan on a rower can be loud and distracting — not exactly what you’d hear out on a quiet morning on the Charles River. Hydrow’s quiet resistance mechanism results in nearly-silent strokes, so all you’ll hear is your instructor, your oars hitting the water, and the subtle sounds of the scene around you, creating a more realistic experience. Plus, you won’t wake up the kids or spouse during those early morning or late night workouts.

– Commercial Grade Durability

We like to stand behind products that are built to last. Hydrow was built with commercial grade durability for your home tested to last over 3,000,000 cycles. That’s a lot of rowing.

– Small Footprint

We understand that sometimes, space comes at a premium. At 85” long by 25” wide, Hydrow can fit into most home fitness spaces. When not in use, Hydrow can be easily stored upright with a mounting device.

So there you have it: epic design specs, impressive trainers, notable technology, a sleek look and all built to last. If you’re in the market for an indoor home rower you need to put this on your radar.
