At the heart of the M1 Series rowing machine is the WaterFlywheel, unique in its replication of on the water rowing. Choose a workout with the feel, sound, and exercise benefits of real rowing.


Portable and easy to manoeuvre, when not in use, M1 Series rowing machines can be stood on end for space-saving storage. Transportation guide wheels allow for the WaterRower to be moved around the home or fitness studio with ease.


Use 84% of muscle mass every stroke. Burn calories and build strength. Minimal impact on joints and the lower back.


The S4 Performance Monitor allows you to track your rowing performance, program workout, and more. Performance metrics measured include 500m Split Time, Calories, Watts, Distance, and Time. Connect the ComModule (sold separately) to the S4 Performance Monitor to enable a Bluetooth connection to WaterRower apps, including WaterRower Connect and CITYROW Go.


Tried and tested in gyms and fitness studios across the land, the WaterRower M1 is built to last. Made by hand in the USA to ensure quality and durability, the M1 rowing machine has a 3-year frame, 5-year parts commercial-grade warranty.


The M1 Series WaterRower is available as either a HiRise or LoRise model. HiRise rowers have a higher seat (500mm/20") than the M1 LoRise (300mm/12"). The HiRise option is popular in commercial gyms and with users that have mobility impairments that make getting on and off the LoRise seat difficult


Unlike air and magnetic resistance rowing machines, the WaterRower has a smooth even stroke resistance that places minimal strain on joints and the lower back.


When used at full extension is possible to burn in excess of 1000 calories per hour on the WaterRower. Indoor rowing uses every large muscle group and recruits both the aerobic and anaerobic systems to provide one of the most efficient workouts you can do.


The ergonomic design of WaterRower M1 Series rowing machines makes it easy to row with good technique, even for a beginner rower, and the quality construction provides a natural, fluid connection with every stroke.
