The Water Rower Oxbridge rowing machine is handcrafted in solid Cherry wood. Like all woods, Cherry wood may vary in color from a red-brown to deep red. The wood will darken in color with exposure to light. For this reason all WaterRower Cherry wood components are kept in light free rooms to protect from shadowing.
A new WaterRower Oxbridge will therefore appear quite light in color. The wood will however darken over time reaching a rich reddish hue.
Each rowing machine has been hand finished with three coats of Danish Oil giving a deep lustre and warmth to the wood.
The WaterRower has been designed to simulate the smooth, flowing nature of a boat gliding through the water. A truly self-regulating exercise, rowing is ideal for any user, from Olympic athlete to those looking for a fulfilling personal workout; the WaterRower is suitable for any age, gender or level of fitness.
Combining control, strength and stamina in one complete exercise, rowing burns fat and strengthens your cardiovascular system with no detrimental impact or load on your joints. The WaterRower offers you an unrivaled aerobic and muscular workout. Rowing exercises 84% of muscle mass with each stroke and burns an excess of 1000 calories per hour.
For reasons of ecology, WaterRower woods are harvested from replenishable forests.
