Please note, not all deals included are still available.
The Cyber Monday rowing machine deals are almost over, but there's still some gas left in this tank. While we've seen some fantastic deals sell out, there's still some real price crashes on surplus Black Friday stocks including water rowing machines, cheap models, and top-rated brands such as Hydrow, Echelon, and ProForm.
Now really is the best time to buy one of the best rowing machines because tonight means the close of the pre-Christmas savings period, the very last day of cheap savings since the Black Friday discounts began at the start of the month. Besides, with winter now here, it’s an ideal time to take your workouts indoors and upgrade your home fitness space.
If you’re not sure which type of Cyber Monday rowing machine deal to go for, consider first of all your space needs. Do you need a model that is foldable so you can save on space, or wheel it away for storage? Grab something more suitable for small garages and apartments if so, or something fixed and sturdier for larger workout spaces if not. Next up, take into account whether you want a rowing machine with smart features so that you can stream live workouts to keep you motivated, or if you just want a dedicated, analogue workout like a gorgeous exposed-wood-and-glass water rowing machine
Either way, we’re seeing discounts over 50% off right now, so be quick if you don’t want to miss out on these brilliant Cyber Monday rowing machine deals for 2021. If you’re after other great savings on cardio, take a look at Cyber Monday elliptical deals, Cyber Monday exercise bike deals, or Cyber Monday treadmill deals.

Cyber Monday rowing machine deals: What to look out for?
All rowing machines work your back muscles, arms, legs and core in addition to your cardiovascular fitness. However, they do this using a few different mechanisms.
The first, and cheapest, are lever systems with hydraulics. These are most often used for collapsible budget machines, and while they're good for casual fitness fans and those looking to get their workout in anytime, anywhere, it's the most limited in terms of range of motion.
Those serious about their fitness will want to look at the next category, using a fan belt and a cable pull. These use either magnetism or electrical resistance artificially applied in addition to the pulls needed to activating the fan.
Serious athletes and those that want the best kit will want water rowers. These accurately simulate the feeling of rowing by using a small tank of water. When you pull the cable, rotary blades turn and work against the water. The harder you pull, the harder the blades work against the water, so the machine performs to your fitness levels automatically rather than using set resistance levels.
Most rowers are customisable, allowing you to adjust the ergonomic moulded seat, height and pedals to your body, while the rail itself will often fold up for storage or stand on its end, allowing you to store it somewhere discreetly with ease. This isn't an issue if you have space for a permanent fixture, but collapsible ones makes for a great option for people in apartments rather than houses with garages and basements.
Lastly, check for warranties. For example, the ProForm 440 rowing machine comes fully covered with a five-year frame and motor warranty.
When is Cyber Monday 2021?
Cyber Monday will fall on Monday November 29, 2021. However you can expect quite a few "early bird" deals to pop up across the week in the run-up to Black Friday. Now BF is a bona fide shopping event rather than an incidental side-effect of Thanksgiving, expect the deals to run across a slew of retailers right up until the following Monday.
Known as "Cyber Monday" due to the online boom, this used to be a simple matter of retailers attempting to get rid of their excess BF stock at knock-down prices. However, this has since grown into a day as full of deals as Black Friday itself. If you miss out on a bargain on the Friday itself, don't despair: you've got until Monday night to snap up a discount rower, and we'll be there to point you in the direction of the latest deals every step of the way.
