Why get a Hydrow?
Quite simply, Hydrow is one of, if not the, top rowing machine on the market right now. We've already waxed lyrical about the simulation motion and the drag technology, but it's a sleek-looking piece of kit and practical, too. No chain and fan noises mean it's whisper-quiet, it's tested to last for over three million pulls, and it can even be stored in an upright position.
There's lots of ways to work out on it, too: you can also adjust the resistance to feel like you're on a single rowboat, an eight-person Olympic team or even a traditional rowing machine.
The sweatproof 22" touchscreen sports an embedded two-megapixel camera for one-to-one coaching, a microphone, a USB 2.0 connection, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology. This is great, because to get the best out of Hydrow, you're going to want to access the smorgasbord of workouts on offer, be it a dynamic trainer-led rowing class or a simulated river row. The multimedia functionality allows you to lose yourself in whatever routine best fits your mood.
