WaterRowers + Gym EquipmentWe've re-jigged our beloved WaterRower section of the website due to the ever expanding range of stunning WaterRower Matching gym equipment from the German NOHrD design and manufacturing company which means dividing all machines off into their own individual catalogue sections. Therefore my previous and somewhat entertaining introduction to the WaterRower Rowing Machine has been replaced by this rather bland writing that most people will never see let alone read as it's the top-level WaterRower category page.
As a brief overview we still have all the WaterRowers of course but have now added the georgeous "Sprintbok" curved treadmill, the NOHrD exercise bikes, WaterGrinder, Wooden wallbars, Swingbells, TriTrainer adjustable bench, SlimBeam and other items made from the same wood as the WaterRowers to ensure an entire gym can be matched up to provide the ultimate in style, design and elegance of the original and never dated WaterRower Rowers.
In this section you can browse all the WaterRower models available and read our reviews for each model. The thing to bear in mind is in reality the rowing action doesn't differ between any of the WaterRower models as they all use the same drum mechanics (variable water resistance) and all WaterRowers share the same ease of storage (as seen in this picture). What separates the original WaterRowers from the many clones and copies that are appearing is they are covered by a commercial warranty from the box. Other copy-cat water rowers require the additional commercial warranty purchase ranging from £100 and upwards. We only sell the original as we have yet to see another rower that gets close to the brilliance and pleasure afforded by the one and only WaterRower.

The stunning Sprintbok Curved Treadmill range from NOHrD have been designed and crafted to hamoniously match not only the wooden WaterRower range but also the rest of the NOHrD designed and beautifully crafted wooden framed exercise equipment range.
Curved Treadmills have become a favourite addition to the Crossfit scene. Without the constraints of a motor-driven powered treadmill the curved treadmills allow the user to accelerate and decelerate without hinderance or limit but until now curved treadmills have been all-black units for the commercial gym.
Now, in the same way WaterRower added elegance, style and beauty to the commercial rowing machine, NOHrD have done the same with the amazing Sprintbok. To see all WaterRower inspired models click here.

The WaterGrinder designed and manufactured by the german NOHrD company to perfectly match the range of wooden WaterRowers provides a unique upper body exercise with the same constantly variable resistance of the WaterRower by using the same WaterRower drum and blades. <br>
In sailing, it is the task of the grinder to transform wind into propulsion by hoisting the sails as quickly as possible. Grinders perform the backbreaking work on board- they are truly top athletes! Exerting physical strength and endurance, the grinders race to turn the winches on sea-going yachts to raise the sails, with a classic crank motion.
The NOHrD WaterGrinder brings this intensive sport to your home, enabling you to achieve the impressive fitness levels of a racing grinder, without having to forego the element of water!

NOHrD SwingBells are the free-weight cross between a dumbbell and a kettlebell. Crafted from hand stitched premium grade leather and the same selection of woods to perfectly match your WaterRower and other NOHrD gym equipment. The SwingBells are weighted with fine iron pellets which give the greatest density in the smallest and most comfortable package but unlike kettlebells the pellets also have a natural instabillity creating increased muscle recruitment as the swingbells have a more dynamic action when used for kettlebell type exercises. Supplied with a solid wood tower stand in the same high grade hardwood with weight increments of 2, 4, 6 & 8kg the Swingbells are perfect for lighter workouts of a more calinsthetics nature.

Pictured here with the TriaTrainer bench and the optional Lat Pulldown attachment to add additional functionallity to this designer dual adjustable pulley station. Physiotherapists, fitness coaches and professional athletes rely on gym equipment with cable machines for a reason: the cable technique makes strength training extremely effective and, as a bonus, cable stations prove to be true space-savers among multi-station exercise machines. Depending on your needs, the NOHrD SlimBeam can be ordered as a free-standing cable station, or with ceiling or wall fixtures.

Oh where do I start? Being a life-long Iron and Steel, back to basics lifter I once would have sneered at such crafted creations the likes of which have been bought to life from the amazing NoHRD design and manufacturing "arm" of WaterRower. However with my passing years and tiring joints the draw of a long walk in the country has a much greater attraction to me having "been there, ticked the box" when it comes to training hard and heavy for the last.... 30 something years. This range of WaterRower-sympathetic training equipment is more along the pilates or yoga way of life. The calm and peaceful gym with that connection to nature through wood and water which allows a meditative like state of mind to be entered into rather than an outward explosion of power and "aggression" created by regular free-weight training.
So I might have gone a bit peace and love in my older years but we all go through changes and when the time comes you'll be setting up a Zen gym with wood and water and not a wi-fir or T.V. signal in sight. <3
