“Josh Crosby, a former rowing champion and co-creator of Indo-Row, acknowledges that ploughing away on an indoor rowing machine can be incredibly tedious. So, in 2004, he came up with a way to motivate people to persist with their exercise.
The classes take place on WaterRower GX, a state-of-the-art rowing machine. Instead of a giant air fan at the front, it has a bowl of water.
As well as simulating the feel of a real oars on water more authentically, each time you pull, you hear the sound of water rushing.
“The water resistance creates a soothing ‘rush’ of water with each pull,” says Crosby.”
