5.0 out of 5 stars This isn't just for athletes..., December 14, 2011

This review is from: Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine with PM3 (Sports)
This is more of a personal review about my quest (26, non-athlete looking for something long term to maintain good health). Most of the reviews here rave about this thing's sturdy build, proven excellent reputation, good customer service, and other facts that clearly set this machine apart from any other... so my review is more geared for regular people wondering whether they are going to have issues with motivation. Are you afraid this is going to end up sitting in your closet?

I was on the crew team in college, and while I loved rowing out on the water, I loathed these machines mostly because we were forced to train so hard on them. After my brief time on the team, I didn't touch these machines (or row) for 8 years. These machines can be something brutal and slavish, or they can be tools for gaining real physical and mental power in your life. Your relationship with the machine simply depends on how you use it!

Technique and good posture are KEY. They... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent workout, top quality equipment., December 31, 2013

After almost a year, I can now write a informed review, this is a solid rower, works great for every one, you can work out as little or as hard as you feel, fairly low impact, no hurt joints after workout.
Keep the track and rollers clean, that would be the only thing to be careful with, specially if you have pets, the hair or dirt on the track will make you feel like you are going "off road" a bit. Anything hard will get embedded in the nylon rollers and make the ride a bit rough.
Great workout for those long and cold Wisconsin winter days, love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quaity Machine, High Resale Value, January 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're like me, you like to row, but you're on the fence about spending this much cash on a machine you may not use as much as you are intending to.

Know that this is a great quality machine with a high resale value via a site like eBay or Craigslist (should you have buyers remorse later on). It is easy to store and is easy to take apart and put together.

The seat isn't the most comfortable thing in the world, but for having a bony butt region, I'm doing just fine. If you want a little more cushion, Conept2 sells an add on cushion feature... of which I haven't bought.

I debated buying the the upgraded PM4 module... I was sure I would use it. But I'm glad I didn't. After all that time thinking I would use more of the features, I only use the basic core features.

Bottom line, this is a great quality product that is extremely popular in the rowing community with a high resale value.
