Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine Review

About The Product:
If there was a machine that could set the standard in rowing, it would be the Conept2 Indoor Rowers. It is the undisputed choice of Olympic athletes, rehab patients, the regular rower and the casual exerciser. First, it has the unbeaten 500-lb maximum user weight capacity. Its a great investment, commercial grade exercise gadget and the Model D comes at a surprisingly affordable price of less than $1000.


Concept2 rowers operate on air resistance rather than magnetic or hydraulic type resistance. This works by capturing the feel and rhythm and feel of real water rowing with the use of a precision calibrated and balanced flywheel. Resistance is generated by wind caught in the spinning flywheel which gives the smoothest and most hassle-free workout tension settings. Its virtually maintenance free without any brake pads to wear out or a friction mechanism that needs to generate heat. A spiral damper creates the restraints which allow you to choose the intensity of your rowing workouts. A self calibrating Performance Monitor with amazing hi-tech functions comes with the Concept2 rower and the machine easily separates into two parts for easy transport and storage.
