Mr Captain water rowing machine | was $1,099 | now $599 at Amazon
The Mr Captain is a beautiful piece of fitness equipment, all exposed wood and water. Rather than noisy fan belts, the water tank provides quiet, realistic resistance that mimics the sensation of actually rowing on water, and thanks to these discounts, it's cheaper than a lot of these plastic fan-belt rowers too. Don't miss out. It even folds up and wheels away for storage.
Why get a water rowing machine?
Sure, you could have a black and metal plastic piece of kit that has a whirring, noisy fan, but why not go for a classic wooden nautical feel? Mr Captain says "The shape of the Rowing Machine is professionally designed like a real ship, and the real water resistance will perfectly bring you a feeling of real-life outdoor rowing experience."
It's not all low-tech: the ergonomic design sports a customisable bluetooth monitor for you to keep track of your workouts, with manual settings and customised interval training programmes.
