The WaterRower Oxbridge is hand crafted in solid Cherrywood.
All WaterRower Series 4 (S4) wood models now include the Home Training DVD in box.
Like all woods, Cherrywood may vary in color from a red-brown to deep red. The wood will darken in color with exposure to light.
For this reason all WaterRower Cherrywood components are kept in light free rooms to protect from shadowing.
A new WaterRower Oxbridge Rower will therefore appear quite light in color. The wood will however darken over time reaching a rich reddish hue.

Overall the Oxbridge indoor rower is comfortable to use and is appropriate for everyone from novices to elite trainees.
When rowing the workout is generated by overcoming the effect of drag as the boat moves through the water.
So with the WaterFlywheel the workout is generated by overcoming the effect of drag as the water moves past the tank on the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower.
When rowing faster you move the boat, the greater the drag and the greater the intensity of exercise required to maintain your speed.
The limit to the speed you can maintain is you, your physiology. Not the machine.
Because the Oxbridge Rower has a precision sprag clutch engages the instant the handle is pulled there is no jerkiness or jarring at the beginning of the stroke.
Because the Water Rower's frame is wooden much of the mechanical vibration typical of other exercise machinery is dampened.
Because the Water Rower's patented WaterFlywheel uses the same physical dynamics as rowing, its operation is equally as peaceful.
Simply pull the handle and you are greeted with the sound of surging water. The noise, while not silent, is soothing to the ears and is far from intrusive.
The Oxbridge Rower wooden frame also assists in dampening out any noise or vibration, there is no metallic clanking,
just the soothing sound of running water, making the Water Rower the quietest rowing machine ever.
The WaterRower Oxbridge Rower has been designed to optimize ease of storage.
Simply lift one end and the machine stores conveniently upright in about the space of a dining room chair.
The WaterRower's light wooden frame, the positioning of the WaterFlywheel close to the wheels, and the leverage effect provided by the rails,
makes lifting almost effortless.
When stored the WaterRower's patented WaterFlywheel provides a low center of gravity making the machine very stable.
Designed with an obsession for detail, the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower is unmatched by any other fitness equipment. The overriding design
philosophy of the Water Rower has achieved "beauty by simplicity".

Using the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower start with a powerful leg push -- called the catch in rowing terminology.
Extending your knees and hips uses some of the largest muscles in your body, namely your quadriceps, hamstrings and gluteus maximus,
which are located on the front of your thighs, the back of your thighs and the back of your hips, respectively.
Using the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower you will be enging the midsection muscles.
The force generated by your legs must be transmitted to the handle of the rower through your back and arms.
To prevent your lower back from collapsing, which would reduce your rowing power and increase your risk of back injury,
your core muscles that surround your midsection contract to stabilize your lumbar or lower spine.
Your core includes your rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, obliques and erector spinae.
Your erector spinae also actively extends your lower back as you lean backward slightly.
Upper Back Muscles
Pulling your arms and shoulders back as you draw the Natural Ash Rower handle into your midsection involves several muscles around your upper back and shoulders.
Your upper trapezius and rhomboids, located between your shoulder blades, pull your shoulders back while your latissimus dorsi,
located beneath your armpits and shaped not unlike wings, pull your upper arms back and into extension.
Located on the front of your upper arm, your biceps are responsible for bending your elbows and pulling the handle of the rower into your midsection to complete your rowing stroke.
Your triceps, working with your anterior deltoids and chest muscles, then extend your arms forward in readiness for another stroke, although this forward movement is against little resistance.
Sliding forward ready to perform another movement is partly the result of the momentum from driving your arms forward and
partly due to a contraction of your hip flexor muscles and hamstrings.
Located on the front of your hips and properly called iliopsoas, your hip flexors muscles work alongside your rectus femoris,
one of your quadriceps, to flex your hip and pull you forward into your next stroke.
Your hamstrings contract to bend your knees and add to your forward momentum.
Benefits of the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower
When you decide to improve your health, your first step should be purchasing the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower.
If you join a gym, regular rowing workouts are an ideal way to work toward maximum physical fitness.
Using a rowing machine can help to build and tone your muscles, strengthen your cardiovascular function and increase your stamina.
Rowing machines are particularly effective for older fitness enthusiasts because they place no strain on your back and joints.
The Oxbridge Rower's S4 Monitor is easy to use, yet it’s packed with useful features and can be connected to a PC for integration with other software.
It has six preset workouts and lets the rider set up additional workouts based on distance goals, duration goals and interval training.
The monitor saves nine consecutive sessions to let you make comparisons or quickly start a routine.
The WaterRower Oxbridge Rowing Machine has a user weight capacity of 1000 pounds.
The Oxbridge rowing machine flips upright for easy storage. Its stored dimensions are 20” x 22.25” x 82.25”.
The Oxbridge machine is built from solid materials and engineered to last a long time.
It has exceptional longevity and dimensional stability, and its water resistance system doesn’t suffer the wear and tear issues that come with other rowing machine designs.
The Oxbridge unit does not require frequent maintenance.
Rowing with the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower burns calories rapidly, making it a suitable addition to your workout regimen if weight loss is your chief priority.
A vigorous workout on a rowing machine can burn about 377 calories in 30 minutes for an individual who weighs 185 pounds, notes Harvard Health Publications.
Frequent rowing can help you work toward the calorie deficit that is integral to weight loss.
Using the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower is an endurance exercise that increases heart function and uses carbohydrates to provide the energy required to exercise.
Keeping the rowing machine tension at a low level allows you to maintain a high rate of speed with little resistance in order to reach and maintain an aerobic state.
Aerobic exercise improves lung, heart and circulation systems and is the cornerstone of an effective exercise routine, according to MayoClinic.com.
The Oxbridge indoor rower has a “Zone Feature” alert system to help you stay within your desired heart rate zone.
It can work with a wireless system (not included) to show the following readouts: maximum heart rate achieved,
time spent above desired heart rate zone, time spent in desired zone, and time spent below desired zone.
Rowing uses virtually every major muscle group in your body. With little pressure on the joints, due to the activity's low-impact nature, rowers work their legs, hips and buttocks with each stroke.
They also use upper-body muscles, strengthening the back, shoulders and arms. The trunk and core are engaged in the exercise as the rower performs each stroke.
You can adjust the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower to create a tighter resistance to increase the rate at which you build muscle.
If you'd rather perform a rowing workout at home than in the gym, your best buy will be the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower -- the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower folds and stores out of sight.
If you're short on time, place your rowing machine in front of the TV to exercise as you relax in the evening. MayoClinic.com reports that physical activity stimulates pleasure centers in the brain.
Cardiovascular workouts, in particular, increase the amount of endorphins released in the body, which can reduce stress and even lift feelings of depression.

|WaterRower Oxbridge Rower with S4 Monitor Water Resistance
WaterRower Oxbridge Rower Water Resistance
The benefit of a water resistance rower like the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower is that it most closely simulates a boat moving through water. Rowing resistance comes from the effect of fluid drag acting on the boat; in other words, resistance increases according to stroke rate. The WaterRower Oxbridge Rower patented WaterFlywheel emulates this naturally self-paced benefit of rowing. This is a workout with immediate benefits, regardless of your level of experience! Please also note that you can adjust the workout intensity by changing the amount of water in the tank. The more water, the higher the effort level required.
The tank of the WaterRower Oxbridge Rower is made from polycarbonate, one of the strongest plastics available. It is virtually indestructible. The tank is sealed and can be filled with municipal water via a small opening closed by a stopper. This water typically contains enough chlorine to remain clear for some time. After exposure to light, the chlorine will degrade; the chlorine tablets should be added periodically.
