It took a while to receive my whipr, but it was definitely worth the wait. I ordered the row, ski, and paddle combo. While removing it from the box, I couldn’t help but be impressed with the quality of materials and workmanship. Set-up is easy and relatively fast. The display is easy to read and use. As a personal trainer, I can’t wait to see what my clients think! I highly recommend the whipr, for all fitness enthusiasts!
Just as sturdy as the big name rowers, this little box gets the job done. Lightweight and easy to break down, the row accessory is a must for any home gym. Customer service is friendly and helpful. Excited to see how Whipr will grow!
I bought this in the kickstart phase and waited nearly a year to receive it (thanks Covid). I’ve been using it about four months to test the durability before giving a proper review. This thing truly lives up to the hype. This unit fits in my tiny entry coat closet. I can take it out and assemble the rower in less than 30 seconds, and get an excellent full body workout in less than ten minutes. I was worried it would be wobbly or not be able to take a beating, but I was wrong. The weld joints are professional and super sturdy. The rower rig doesn’t slide at all, even on my wood flooring without a mat underneath. The Whipr base unit itself is also strong, the settings are easy to navigate, and I can pull like I would on any concept rower at the gym and it feels sturdy and strong. All around excellent product and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others.
I had always wanted a rowing machine. Only problem: nowhere to store when not in use. When I saw the Whipr, I was instantly sold and ended up getting it with my stimulus money and as a present to myself for getting a new job. I've found that I have zero excuses to work out now, as all I have to do is just inflate the back of it and I can get a quick row or SUP workout before starting my day, rather than drive to the gym, change, work out (if the machines I want to use are even available), then get dressed again. While the demos show it working with a door, anything heavy will work just as well. I use a chest of drawers or a bookshelf.
All in all, it's a great product for those looking for a truly portable home or home away from home gym. You truly get your money's worth without the sacrifice of quality. Assembly of the rowing/paddling machine takes about 5-10 minutes.
I have loved that this machine is so light that I can carry it from my garage into the home for continued opportunity to move from intense workout (garage) to an easy row or paddle while I watch tv so I spend less time sitting. Couldn't do something like this with a larger piece of equipment. The affordability is also something that is appreciated since purchasing a standard rower was outside my budget. Now I not only have a rower, I have a paddle option and a ski option so my movement can change with my mood and motivation. WORTH every penny.
