Most people will have heard of the Concept 2 Rowing Machine, but if you haven’t then this article will show you what all the fuss is about.
Users of the concept 2 rower do not just include gym members or home users, professional rowers use this machine in their training for events such as the Olympics.
Rowing is a great exercise for a number of reasons. It can help you to burn a lot of calories. The health of your heart and cardiovascular system can be significantly increased. It gives you a full body workout which will tone muscles in both your upper and lower body. There are a lot of health benefits that will suit every goal from using an exercise rowing machine.
The concept 2 rowing machine was designed with quality and robust design in mind. This machine will last a lifetime. However the only downside that I can think of for this rower is the price. It will cost more than many other rowing machines that are available, but with this rower you really do get what you pay for.
The smooth and surprisingly quiet rowing action really does make you believe that you are on the water. Whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned rower, this machine is going to suit you. The ergonomic design ensures that you sit comfortably while exercising.
You have numerous pre-set programs to take advantage of. The PM3 computer monitor provides detailed information. From the calories that you burn, the rate of speed that you exercise, the distance that you row for, and a host of other features.
You also have the option to upload your information to the Concept 2 Rowing Machine website where you will be able to analyse your details in greater depth. You are also provided with workouts to suit your current fitness levels, and tips n how to increase your results.
A lot people of find that aerobic training of any sort can become pretty boring. This is not going to happen with the Concept 2. This is not a rower that is going to sit in your home collecting dust.
This rowing machine is a big machine. You will need a space of around 9 feet by 4 feet. This may sound like a lot of space, but keep in mind that this is a gym quality machine which has a maximum user weight of 500 pounds. No other rowing machine can match this.
As far as I know (and I have researched this extensively), nobody who has purchased this rowing machine has ever had a bad thng to say about it. Anybody who has purchased the concept 2 has been delighted with it. Yes it is expensive, yes it takes up a bit of space, but if you find that you struggle with motivating yourself to exercise, then the Concept 2 Rowing Machine will put that to bed for good.
