Rowing has long been recognized as the perfect aerobic pursuit, with naturally smooth and flowing movements that don't tax the joints but do tax the heart rate. Now you can take your rowing experience to the next level with the WaterRower Xeno Muller Signature Series Natural rowing machine, which includes the signature of the famed Swiss rower and Olympic gold medalist engraved onto the top deck. Using the same principles that govern the dynamics of a boat in water, the Xeno Muller Natural is outfitted with a "water flywheel" that consists of two paddles in an enclosed tank of water that provide smooth, quiet resistance, just like the paddles in an actual body of water. As a result, the machine has no moving parts that can wear out over time (even the recoil belt and pulleys don't require lubricating or maintaining). More significantly, the water tank and flywheel create a self-regulating resistance system that eliminates the need for a motor. As with real rowing, when you paddle faster, the increased drag provides more resistance. When you paddle slower, the resistance is less intense. The only limit to how fast you can row is your strength and your ability to overcome drag. And unlike conventional rowing machines, which tend to be jerky and jarring, the Xeno Muller Natural is remarkably smooth and fluid.
The Natural's water tank and flywheel provide smooth, quiet resistance that feels just like real rowing.
From a fitness perspective, the Xeno Muller Natural works 84 percent of your muscle mass, helping tone and strengthen your muscles while burning far more calories than most other aerobic machines. The exercise is also low impact, as it removes all the body weight from the ankles, knees, and hips, but still moves the limbs and joints through a full range of motion--from completely extended to completely contracted.
The Xeno Muller Natural is outfitted with a Series 4 performance monitor that's designed to balance technical sophistication with user-friendliness. The monitor--which includes six information and programming windows, six QuickSelection buttons, and three navigation buttons--displays your workout intensity, stroke rate, heart rate, zone bar, duration, and distance. Plus, the monitor is compatible with an optional heart rate chest strap and receiver, which helps you optimize your workout and achieve your exercise objectives.

The Xeno Muller Natural is handcrafted in solid ash and stained honey oak for consistency of color. The wood was chosen due to its marvelous engineering properties, especially its ability to absorb sound and vibration, which enhances the rower's quiet performance and smooth operation. Ash, like all woods used in the construction of the rower, is a premium hardwood with incredible longevity and dimensional stability. In addition, the wood is harvested from replenishable forests and is hand finished with Danish oil to provide a deep luster.
Other details include dual rails with four corner wheels that increase seat stability and reduce the amount of sweat buildup; a 17-inch-wide handle; a frame that flips upright for handy storage; and a weight capacity of up to 1,000 pounds. The Xeno Muller Natural measures 84 by 21 by 22 inches (W x H x D), weighs 117 pounds (with water), and carries a one-year warranty on the frame and components (WaterRower will upgrade the warranty to five years on the frame and three years on the components with the completion of a registration form). The rower also comes with a one-year subscription to Xeno Muller's website and one free coaching session via Skype, iChat, or Google Video.
