The only portable rower on earth
Say goodby to bulky machines. No matter what other companies may say, a rower is not a piece of furniture.
Multi purpose base unit
To build a base unit versatile enough to move between activities like kayaking and rowing while having enough adjustable resistance for both, our engineers had to think out of the box.
Our solution is to use a proprietary 'doubler' pulley which runs the cord from the base unit, through a wheel on the handle, and back to the rowing frame.
The result is enough resistance for distance rowing but a base unit that can also be used for multiple activities.
We waited a long time to write this review. Why? Because we wanted to gauge whether this machine would really hold up. Well, after 10 months of regular use, we are happy to report that our Whipr absolutely rocks! We have the row component and my wife and I love it. So much so that we have recommended it to all of our friends and family members. Thank you Whipr for making a fantastic product!
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.
