SWEAT

While it doesn’t compare to rowing the Charles at sunrise, mimicking the same workout in winter is infinitely easier and stylish with Ergatta. This isn’t your father’s rowing machine. Handcrafted in Rhode Island, the rower is built from sustainably grown and harvested cherrywood. The design team also worked with furniture pros to create a rower that would complement modern decor—the Ergatta stores vertically and takes up floor space equal to a standard barstool. ergatta.com
