HYDROW (Live Outdoor Reality Rower)

This looks great.

This looks great.

The HYDROW bills itself as a 'Live Outdoor Reality Rower' (think rowing machine with a screen showing another rower, outdoors), which lets you row with world class athletes streaming live from the water. Very interesting concept - would love to see other pieces of equipment offer a similar pairing.

To give you an idea of what this thing looks like and how it works, a spot of video :

NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

We also discuss a number of training-related books. If you're looking for the full list of the ones I recommend personally, swing by Goodreads. Great site.
