The National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) if now offering their membership access to sports tech company Hydrow Flow, Inc. rowing machines and online coaching. Quality of life, longevity and personal connections are at the heart of the new arrangement between the NBRPA and Hydrow Flow allowing each member total access to the high-tech, at-home or in the office, rowing machines complete with available virtual coaching. The Sports Techie community blog enjoys sharing sports technology related stories like these on river rowing sims, so our readers and followers can learn about the latest techified exercise equipment in case you are interest in trying them out. If it works for Legends, it will work for you.
The Hydrow Flow Way
Low impact workouts for former professional basketball players are important as many are dealing with retirement on bad knees, hips and ankles as a result of the constant pounding players get running, jumping and cutting on the hardwood and blacktop courts, throughout a lifetime of games, practices and rehab. Offering former NBA and WNBA professionals the option to train with Hydrow Flow interactive rowing machines is truly a health benefit that also steadies the mind resulting in improved sleep.
“We are very excited to bring Hydrow to NBRPA Members,” said Scott Rochelle, NBRPA President & CEO. “The ability to offer our Legends a one-of-a-kind, at-home workout option that exercises the whole body, is great for the heart and easy on the knees was a no-brainer.”
Every Legends rower has the sport tech enhanced option to select from a number of waterways around the world while secure in their house or office space by using the Live Outdoor Reality™ (LOR) system.
Private, one-on-one sessions together with Hydrow Coaches ensures the physical activities per row are performed mechanically sound. A full-body, rowing workout uses up to 86% of the muscles in the body making it one of the best workouts of all. An added benefit being the option to connect with an expert coach providing members with the ability to communicate with like-minded health and wellness experts, an actual human connection that can be priceless for retirees.
“Working with Legends of Basketball is an incredibly special opportunity for us, as it allows us to support these elite athletes throughout the next chapter in their careers,” said Bruce Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Hydrow, Inc. “Hydrow offers a dynamic, low-impact cardiovascular workout, and the fact that you’re able to work out with others mimics the teamwork these athletes have known their entire lives. We’re proud to be able to work with these players who have given us so much joy throughout their illustrious careers.”
Social Media Influence Campaign
To showcase this sport business partnership. WNBA Legend Ruth Riley and NBA Legend José Calderón signed on as Hydrow Influencers. Hoops fans both young of age, middle aged and seniors, are able to watch and engage with Riley and Calderón as they both share their unique Hydrow fitness experiences over their respective Instagram handles.
Riley was able to engage with the U.S. Rowing Team on a recent Hydrow workout.

Sports Techie, in the past, many, many moons ago, I sold a variety of high-end to entry level rowing machines at the former Busy Body Home Fitness, known today as Johnson Fitness & Wellness. This sales experience gave me the opportunity to train on the benefits of rowing while understanding the bells and whistles each fitness product came with, along with learning how to install, repair, and put them together out of the box.
What I can tell you is be sure to use proper rowing mechanics, especially if you have back issues because if you do not, a rowing motion can aggravate past injuries or may cause new ones. This is a critical reason why you should log in and use Hydrow coaches whenever possible. Having the virtual aspect of working out with trainers like what Peloton bikes and treadmills provide to owners is proving to be popular with users, Hydrow offers this same type of web-based service for rowers.
I’ll also add this, rowing is a fat burning dream. Try doing a row on a higher resistance setting and with longer session times. Even short workouts with high intensity intervals will do wonders for your weight loss and maintenance, as well as core, arm and leg strength training.
While I have not used Hydrow, I’ll take the word of Legends like Hunter and Calderón when it comes to the value of using their rowing machines.
The choice is yours, make it a good one.
See you later sportstechie in Seattle, Atlanta and around the world!
