What is Hydrow?

Hydrow is both the name of the company and the home exercise machine it offers. The Hydrow rowing machine offers a nearly complete workout experience, combining technology with heavy exercise. Thanks to the Hydrow’s HD screen, users can row while viewing scenes in London, Scotland, Miami and other locations during both live and on-demand classes. Its electromagnetic drag system also mimics the feel of being on open water for a more immersive experience.

How does the Hydrow rower work?

The Hydrow machine mimics the feeling of rowing on water, exercising 86% of your muscles to create a complete workout. This low-impact exercise is done sitting down, which makes it comfortable for most bodies.

With the Hydrow rower, you can create your own rowing workout or follow along as a member in one of its over 1,500 live or prerecorded classes taught by professional instructors. These classes are shown on the 22-inch HD screen attached to the rower, allowing for an immersive workout experience on waterways around the world.

After purchasing the Hydrow rowing machine, your order ships to your home. Set up your machine, connect it to a power outlet and connect it to the internet via Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable. Then you can create your Hydrow account and activate your membership to begin exercising.

Hydrow FAQ

Does Hydrow require installation?

No, Hydrow rowing machines require little assembly and can be put together without professional help.

Does Hydrow offer free shipping?

Yes, customers receive free shipping for Hydrow’s rowers.

Can I use the Hydrow rower without a subscription?

Yes, although the company doesn’t recommend it. Without a subscription, the Hydrow can only be used as a traditional rower, which may actually worsen your side of the deal.

No, you can only use the Hydrow monitor for streaming the company’s workout content and real-time statistics.

Is Hydrow worth the money?

If you enjoy the full-body workout of a rowing machine and want to experience workout classes in international locales, Hydrow’s equipment and membership are worth the cost. Hydrow allows you to get a challenging workout at home without paying for a gym membership. You can figure out if the Hydrow has a place in your workout routine before you commit with its free 30-day trial.
