New to rowing?
The Ergatta rower is excellent for beginners and experienced rowers alike.
We offer a Getting Started Series where we’ll teach you proper form through a variety of methods - video tutorials, interactive training, and short, accessible workouts. We also offer several beginner programs specifically designed to introduce you to rowing.
Almost half of our members are completely new to rowing. You can join our Facebook, Reddit, or Strava communities and connect with other members for tips and support.
Natural water resistance is best for beginner rowers because it is evenly distributed throughout the stroke and is easier on the back than electromagnetic or air.
Ergatta's unique calibration system is especially helpful for beginners. After the Getting Started Series and your initial Calibration test, all workout programming will be tailored to your level. As you get the hang of rowing, your profile will automatically recalibrate and adapt your experience to make each target and competitor a fair challenge.
If you need any assistance, our support team is also happy to help with tips on form, workout recommendations, or anything else.
