There are also no concerns with noise

  • Concept 2 rowing workout machines were introduced some decades ago in 1981. The maker of the Concept 2 rowing Plastic injection molding machine is based in Vermont where the winters are very cold with a good deal of snow. So it adds up that designing a high quality rowing machine for indoor use would be a fantastic idea. However, they intentionally wanted to make the very best rowing machines possible using intelligent design principles. As an actual user of their rowing exercise machines, I can personally say their machines work well. I will share details concerning the more notable qualities of this exercise machine.You will find two models of its rowing workout machine available, the Model D and E. If you wish to spend less, then the Model D is the rower you want to get. The essential accessory that goes with each Concept 2 rower is the PM3 or PM4 performance monitor. The PM3 is a standard feature on the Model D rowing machine with a choice to upgrade to the PM4. The pricier Model E always ships the PM4 with it as the main monitor. The Model E is priced two to three hundred fifty dollars more than the Model D based on which performance monitor you select.

    You will be able to track how well you are making progress with the performance monitors as well as monitoring your pulse. There is an enclosed heart rate sensor that is placed across your chest, and there is a strap that holds it in place. This sensor is very low profile and made of rubber, and the strap that comes with it is like spandex and is easily adjustable. Once you set out to row, you will be preoccupied enough to the point where you will hardly notice it is there. The information from the heart rate monitor is actually sent to the PM3 or PM4 for processing and display.The Concept 2 design utlizes a flywheel assembly that you will use to generate the resistance and feel of rowing. There are no safety issues with this as it is completely enclosed in a plastic assembly. You will be able to change the resistance for tougher or lighter rowing.

    There are also no concerns with noise since the overall rowing machine is almost quiet during rowing. The flywheel turns when you row, and it produces a soft air movement that is extremely quiet. However, I can share that after many years of use that the movement of the flywheel is not at all distracting. You could put this rower in just about any room and easily use it without creating noise.You can observe how quickly you row, plus other information, from the PM3 or PM4 performance monitors. There are sufficient data types to meet the needs of either professional rowers or someone who wants a great workout. And so it all comes down to your reasons for using the rower beyond primariy goal to get and stay in shape. For instance, if you are a competitive rower, you will probably track the different stats from other competitive rowers.
