Hydrow is the leading at-home connected rower that leverages innovative technology to bring the on-water, outdoor experience of rowing to the home.

Hydrow delivers a live on-river rowing experience at-home that engages two times more of the body's muscles than biking or running.

Hydrow was founded in 2017 by Bruce Smith. The company is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.


Hydrow recreates the feeling of rowing directly on the water via an algorithm-based, patented electromagnetic and computer-controlled drag mechanism.


Hydrow's innovative LOR technology brings balance and peace, while simultaneously delivering a challenging workout, engaging 86% of the body's muscles compared to 44% with cycling.


Hydrow has also expanded its offering for members, releasing workouts from exciting new locations across the US and Europe, and all-new workout formats, including coastal rowing. The company has over 200,000 users.


Hydrow is backed by L Catterton, Rx3 Ventures, Alumni Ventures Group, Castor Ventures, Winklevoss Capital, Constitution Capital, Wheelhouse 360 Partners, and others. The company raised $55M in Series D round on Mar 17, 2022. This brings Hydrow's total funding to $320.8M to date.
