New Matrix Fitness Rowing Machine

At Matrix, they believe that good is the enemy of great. So when they looked at their rower in 2012 and found that it was merely good, they went to work with the goal to create an unparalleled rowing experience. They knew that rowing had evolved in nearly 20 years since the launch of our original stationary rower, moving into multi-modality circuits, health club cardio floors, specialized rowing classes and elite athletic training facilities.

It was up to our design team — a mix of industrial designers, engineers and product specialists — to create a rower that served all of these different activities without compromise.

WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine – Review

The Conclusion

The WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine is a beautifully crafted product made from solid wood that is both pleasing to the eye, as well as delivers an incredible low-impact workout for all individuals. The solid Ash Wood texture and patented water filled flywheel makes this a great product for any home gym.

Personally, I have experienced frequent knee pain over the last several years while running outdoors and occasional treadmill use. In recent months I have started doing rowing workouts, one machine in particular, the WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine, has been a breath of fresh air and I have experienced a lot of relief in my joints.

The design of the Natural Rowing Machine frame and the overall construction of the product such as the narrow foot rests and dual rail design allowed for a quiet, comfortable, and smooth ride throughout the duration of my workout allowing me to walk away pain free.

However, if there was one thing I would change about this product it is the choice of material used for the handle bar. Initially, the material was comfortable, however, after about 30 minutes of use it became rough on the hands leaving me with a few blisters. I now wear some weight lifting gloves to handle the friction of the handlebar and it’s been better although I would prefer not to wear gloves while working out so hopefully the manufacturer updates the handles soon. I have peers which also use the rower and they do not have the same issue with the handlebar, but for me gloves are necessary to enjoy the 30 minute workout.

Overall, I think the WaterRower Natural Rowing Machine is a great product for all individuals looking to increase their cardiovascular fitness, burn calories for weight loss, tone your upper and lower body, strengthening of the lower back, and desire a low-impact full body workout.
