HYDROW: Row in real time

Isn’t it cool rowing at home with the same experience you could have on water? Yes, Hydrow’s unique Live Outdoor Rowing delivers a live on-river outdoor rowing experience at-home that engages two times more of the body’s muscles than biking or running, resulting in over 400 calories burned in a 20-minute workout.

You can learn the basics of rowing and proper resistance training in a few minutes from world-class rowing instructors live-streaming from the river. Other at-home fitness equipment is not as efficient as this one. Hydrow generates 86 percent muscle engagement whereas biking and running generate 44 percent only.

They are bringing the outdoor rowing experience straight to the comfort of people’s homes with live workouts broadcasted from the Charles River and the Intercoastal. It offers 100s of customizable workouts and difficulty levels across four categories (breath, sweat, push and drive).

A user can choose the duration of their workout from 5 minutes up to 60 minutes. Also, he can select whether he wishes to row as part of a team or individually, and leaderboards are showcased to keep users accountable and challenged.

Hydrow offers a “back-friendly” resistance, which provides a low resistance at the beginning of the stroke when the back is folded and most compressed, and increases the resistance as the stroke unfolds.
