WaterGrinder – Upper Body Fitness Trainer

WaterGrinder – Pure Intensity

Upper Body Fitness Trainer

In sailing, it is the task of the grinder to transform wind into propulsion by hoisting the sails as quickly as possible. Grinders perform the backbreaking work on board- they are truly top athletes! Exerting physical strength and endurance, the grinders race to turn the winches on sea-going yachts to raise the sails, with a classic crank motion.

The NOHrD WaterGrinder brings this intensive sport to your home, enabling you to achieve the impressive fitness levels of a racing grinder, without having to forego the element of water!

The WaterGrinder’s wooden seat can be positioned on either side in 3 different heights. It can be worked from both a sitting or standing position.

Resistance: high or low

The hand pedals can be set in 8 different positions to adjust resistance: the smaller the rotation radius, the higher the intensity.

The WaterGrinder can be used from both the front or back of the machine, as well as from the side- you choose whether to sit or stand. All positions will train your upper body- chest, abs, back, arms and shoulders.

Different models to suit your taste

The WaterGrinder upper body fitness trainer comes in different kinds of wood and finishes.

The WaterGrinder is easy to use while providing a full range of upper body exercise. Its elegant, drop-shape wooden frame is a true eye-catcher.

Brand information

WaterRower was founded in 1988 by U.S. national team rower and Yale engineering professor John Duke. Duke’s vision was to create a rowing machine that simulates the resistance and feeling of a rowing boat gliding through the water.

Widely regarded as the most realistic rowing simulator on the market, WaterRower’s unique WaterFlywheel uses water resistance to replicate the dynamics of a moving boat.

All WaterRower machines are handmade in the U.S. at the brand’s New England factory in Warren, Rhode Island, where the company was founded. All wooden models are crafted from the finest Appalachian hardwoods, sourced only from replenishable forests.

WaterRower has won many design accolades for its smart fusion of aesthetics and functionality and has been featured at the London Museum of Design, and New York Museum of Modern Art.

Predominately run by former international elite rowers, WaterRower’s clientele includes Steven Spielberg, actress Anna Friel and Princess Anne and has been featured in hit drama series’ House of Cards and The West Wing.
