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.
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.
