The WaterRower GX Home is handcrafted in premium Ash hardwood with a sleek aluminum monorail design. Each machine is left unstained and has been hand finished in Danish Oil to provide a deep luster and warmth to the wood. For reasons of ecology, all the wood has been harvested from replenishable forests. The GX Home rowing machine includes the GX logo burned into the wood of the front left and right of the machine, as well as the patented quickstart GX monitor. It features water flywheel technology which produces a real life simulation of rowing on the water and provides an incredibly smooth and soothing work out. Wood has been chosen due to its marvelous engineering properties, including its ability to absorb sound and vibration, which enhances the WaterRower’s quietness and smoothness of usage. The WaterRower can be stored conveniently in an upright position.
