Customer reviewsIncredible machine,..built like a tank Definitely worth the dough
It IS nice to know we can still do it BETTER than China every once in a while This rowing machine could not have been easier to assemble all of 10 minutes, if that much ...and VERY ROBUSTLY made I ve been a licensed mechanical and civil engineer now retired and I know good build quality AND for that matter, EXCELLENT design quality as well. Just get on and row Well,...spend a half hour or so on you tube to look at basic beginner s rowing technique they all feature Concept 2 s , BTW --- and your off and away I used to use and still have a gym quality tread mill, but arthritis is really setting in bad in recent years and with all this crazy rain and unusually cold weather in May, it just is too much pounding on the knees and hips so, I do short 5 minute semi-sprints or slow ones, if that s what I feel like, to build up my cardio rate and then hop off and hit the weight bench. I go back to the rower for another 5 or 10 minutes I put it at resistance level 3 and try to stay around 25-30 rows per minute and all is well. After those ,I do some curls for the biceps and then overhead triceps presses. I m 67 this month and am rapidly starting to feel more energy, stamina, and strength. Mind you,...I don t go overboard. I m just trying to strengthen the muscles that keep my knees, hips and neck in place and the Concept 2 rower is superb for all around cardio w o too much vertical stress on the knees, hips, and neck I have degenerative disc disease caused by osteoarthritis which is the gradual eroding away of the cartilage in between my neck discs, knee and hip joints. My mother had the rheumatoid variety real bad, so its probably genetic and in my early retirement, I just did not keep up to snuff w physical exercise and gained about 40 extra pounds over the last 15 years. The good life CAN kill ya but my new mantra is,... all things in moderation Including the exercise usually 3 to 4 times a week, though the rower makes it so easy to jump on for some quick cardio any time
