Love the Ergatta Lite

We love our new Ergatta. The games, completions and goals are helpful to keep me excited to get on the rower regularly. The machine stacks up well. The wires can be a little messy and need a little effort to reorganize. No regrets so far!

Beth McComb
Loving our rower!

Just as expected. We love the games, and the build quality is excellent. Our dog enjoys the sound of the water too!

Gabriel Neal
As great as expected

It works great.
Set up and stand up are quick and easy.
I'm enjoying the variety of rowing challenges and the fantastic data tracking.
Zero regrets.

Enjoyable Cardio

I usually hate cardio because I just am constantly thinking about how difficult it is and how it’s hard to break through that “wall”. But with these workouts, yes it still feels hard but this platforms helps me focus on the goals it presents rather than the difficultly of the workout.
