WaterRower A1 Ash/Aluminium Review

The WaterRower A1 Studio as it used to be called is know more commonly known simply as the "WaterRower A1" (in the UK at least). Initially designed to provide an economical way for group indoor rowing sessions but also became popular in the domestic market finding favour with uses not woried by the reduced features of the workout monitor or the slightly noisier action of the seat riding along the aluminium mono-rail.
I shouid say that the "noise" of the WaterRower A1 is still significantly less than any air/fan rower thanks to it sharing the same drum components as the rest of the WaterRower range.

There was a time when the the WaterRower A1 was a great unit to up-sell to the WaterRower Natural by its absence of Heart Rate Monitor compatabillity and more basic "Quick start" monitor which still gives essential feedback but lacks the more in-depth features of the Series 4 Performance Workout Monitor or the rest of the range, but now with the arrival of the WaterRower SmartRow the A1 can leap ahead of the Series IV monitor with the option of adding the SmartRow device to turn the A1 into a highly accurate Ergometer offering very high performance, power and stroke feedback.

Other notable points are the WaterRower A1, being designed for group/class use caters for a greater range of athletic and non-athletic phisiques with the following key features:

  • Larger Seat: Wider, Thicker, Softer all make the A1 WaterRower more comfortable for the less trained user.
  • Mono-rail: This allows the foot retainers to be spaced wider giving a more generous space between the legs.
  • 17" Handle: Another comfort feature for anyone with a bit more volume around the upper body.
  • Closer Workout Monitor: Mounted on the footboard the A1 Performance Monitor is within easy reach.

WaterRower A1 Studio Rower in use

Top of the range, the high-quality A1 Studio Water Rower is designed to be portable, lightweight and space saving. The water flywheel allows you to emulate the exact dynamics of a boat moving across water and creates a wave-like sound which is engaging, mesmerising and is the closest thing to a real-life row in the comfort of your own home.

The A1 WaterRower is crafted with solid ash finished with Danish oil and an Aluminium monorail. The rower can be stored vertically which makes it very easy to store in a small amount of space.

Supporting you in every single row, the A1 Rower features a thicker and softer more comfortable seat which is designed with a textured finish to stop you from slipping which will maximise your security when in use. The adjustable footplates and foot straps allow you to comfortably secure your feet to the rower.

If you are looking for a high-quality rower which makes it easy to row with good technique, even for a beginner rower, and the quality construction provides a natural, fluid connection with every stroke – look no further as the A1 WaterRower is the perfect item for you.

Providing you with a full body workout, the A1 WaterRower features a large tank which is filled with water, as you increase the pace of rowing, it naturally increases the resistance in your rowing experience. This means that you can control the resistance by increasing or decreasing in a single motion. WaterRowers closely replicates the feel of rowing on water and is smoother with a constant resistance throughout the complete stroke. Water Rower has many benefits, including the following:

The WaterRower A1 Studio Rower just like the other wooden WaterRowers in the range, while suitable for full commercial use it's an ideal single item of fitness equipment that's perfect for the whole family to use regardless of age or athletic abillity. The uniqueness or the A1 Water Rower is that even in a home, flat or apartment where space is extremely tight, if you have space to lie on a floor you have space to use a waterrower and when stored upright the space taken up is less than that of a regular diningroom chair. 


If you've had a particularly hard or stressful day there is no better way to create a state of welbeing than to spend 30 or 40 minutes on a rower. Set a distance or duration and go-row. Exercise that makes you sweat also releases endorphins which is our natural happy-high. This  and post exercise induce relaxation will ensure a good nights sleep and have you ready to fight another day'

Or for the early risers start off with a high from a pre-breakfast high intensity row and set yourself up to handle all that comes your way.
