Membership is an integral part of the Hydrow experience and should not be considered an optional part of purchasing. Everything that makes Hydrow unique, including all of our premium workout content and connected fitness elements, will require an active membership.
Hydrow rowers without an active membership will operate in "Just Row Mode" and have only very limited functionality.
We honestly do not suggest purchasing Hydrow with the intent of using it in "Just Row" mode. If you are not interested in the streaming video or connected-fitness elements, you may want to consider carefully whether or not Hydrow is the right rower for you.
