    Quieter than most rowers and so far seems durable and well built. Easy to set up yourself but heavy to move. You do need to have the monthly membership to use which is worth it. Some of the videos provide different views as you are rowing which keeps you engaged. Live classes, on demand classes or just yourself rowing down a body of water to keep you motivated. Overall glad I made the purchase!

    I just got this today, so excited and set it up. The rower is really not functional unless you have a membership which is $38 plus tax. Jeez! It is Smooth without the program but there is no way to adjust anything without the membership. That is almost $500 a year!

    Great Rower, smooth, has huge display, soft padded seat and glides smoothly. Little overpriced, but this is the new gimmick with the big electronic displays and interactive software and high prices. Has a nice footprint. Its very, very heavy, so you need at least 2 people to move it. We will see how it holds up once I use it more.

    I own a Peloton bike and I use it regularly. The biggest issue with the bike is that it's almost all quad. Your upper leg is working like crazy and the cardio is really intense. The problem with the bike is that it doesn't do the rest of your body. I bought the Hydrow to try to get a full body workout and it's really great. You're effectively doing a squat, crunch and push up each time you row. When it's over you really feel as though you've worked out your entire body. The classes are great too. You see the instructor on the screen and you're mirroring them, so when they go fast so do you. I took a class yesterday and they were in Miami and there were dolphins in the open water. It was pretty neat. Anyway, it's nice to go stroke for stroke with them and it makes it a lot more enjoyable than a traditional rower. I love it and my family has been using it more than the Peloton.

    We own a Peloton bike (have for 2 years) and we have both used it regularly... i can say.. yes it's a decent cardio workout for 45-60 minutes.. but this rower is a workout at just 20 minutes. I couldnt see doing this without the programming.. I need a coach to keep me going, I like the scenery/Boston, the athletes - these are the real deal - and I like the workouts... 20 minutes goes by fast and you FEEL it everywhere. We moved our Peloton bike out of the Great room and moved this beauty in... it is truly Sexy.. low to the ground, it is visually appealing and USEFUL. It's a steal, a better workout (we got the black Friday deal!) and we are pleased! Yes we are paying for 2 memberships right now.. CRAZY.. one will have to go at some point. We love the Hydrow!!! Like the guy said it uses 80% of your body vs just legs.. you totally can feel it! Thanks BB for this offer. We picked it up with our trailer to get it faster home!

    7 days active, this thing just keeps me and my wife motivated. The athletes/coaches knows how to push and encourage good form. I'm improving everyday. the $38 monthly is what turn people off, but it's about the same as peloton. I don't understand the negative reviews when they don't even own it. Gives it one star when they find out the fee. Anyways, the rower still has tons of potential, I believe there are more feature coming. This is more beta and it's already an amazing machine. Get one, and experience for yourself. If the $38 is too much, then get a concept 2. Was gonna give it 4 star but the black friday sale pushed it to 5 and a great buy at $1199.

    Well built, great classes, wonderful workout. I think $2k is a little steap but I bought it on Black Friday special for $1100-great bargain and worth the money.

    I have always loved rowing machines and being able to stream classes has been a lot of fun. I got this while it was $1000 off so I feel that $1200 is an ok price but $2200 is a bit much.

    Avoid! Completely unusable without $40 monthly fee

    Avoid! Completely unusable without $40 monthly fee

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this as the Pelaton of rowers. It’s very sleek and stylish, and well made. Only upon receiving it did I find out it is completely unusable without the $40 monthly subscription. Nowhere in BestBuy or the Hydrow site do they fully make you aware of this - it’s buried in the FAQs. It literally does nothing without the online $ commitment. I’ve never seen this. Even a Pelaton bike is functional as a stationary bike without the service, you just don’t have access to the online classes, metrics, etc. And to be clear, I appreciate the online capabilities, and planned to use them. But this is a very young company and was unknown to me prior to BestBuy. If they happen to go out of business, which is a valid risk if their business model requires such a high fee (Pelaton now offers a $13 monthly fee) you will be stuck with a 200 lb paperweight you invested thousands of dollars into. That’s just too high of a risk. If they introduce the ability to use this as even a rudimentary rower without the monthly fee I would gladly keep it. But until such a time I would avoid the risk if I were you.

    Got it on the blackfriday deal, and researched it thoroughly, so I was prepared to pay for the membership. I love this machine. It looks like a piece of art. The experience is amazing, especially waking up to dolphins in Miami. The instructors are great and really make the time pass by. I've done 4 days of rowing, and am already up to 20 minute rows and wanting more after each row. The machine is quiet and smooth, and I really like the mobility of the screen for the mat exercises. I've never rowed before, so all the instructional videos were very helpful. I still have a ways to go to get down to my high school shape, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with this program.

    Love this machine. Just started rowing and feel the difference already. It is heavy to install so use two people but once set up, it easy to turn on and start using. $38/mo. for all the classes right now is worth it to me.

    I really enjoy the Hyrow Rowing Machine. They offer live rowing sessions and many prerecorded sessions. You can compete with others who are rowing at the same time or have recently rowed. They also offer stretching, and other pre and post-workouts off the machine. I feel like I'm in a class at the gym. It is a very stylish and smooth rowing machine that does not take up a lot of space.

    I got to meet Dani Hansen at an event recently and hearing straight from the mouth of a gold medalist rower how this product helps them train and actively supports US Olympic Rowing was amazing. It looks like a Silicon Valley tech gimmick until you get on one immediately after a traditional rower and feel the difference. I’m a kayak and while the sport is very different you can tell the water feel is much more authentic. The workouts and races keep it interesting and you will never run out of content even using a new one every day!

    I am an employee of Best Buy. I like this product for many reasons but the key features that stood to me was how smooth, comfortable and noise free it was when performing the rowing exercises. It comes with a 22''hd screen that is ample for touring international waterways like the Charles River and the subscription offers a variety of ways to row. With the equipment and the subscription, you don't just get the noise free rower, you get the experience. It looks good, too. I highly recommend.
