rowing machine for cross training
would like to buy hubby a rowing machine for part of his cross training.
Any suggestions for a good, reliable one that he would enjoy using?
There's no alternative to the Concept2 in my humble opinion! The latest model you can find, model E being the latest, although models C and D are both excellent.
I've recently been looking at rowing machines for the same purpose.
The cheap ones felt cheap. An expensive magnetic one (Tunturi) felt odd although it was silent and folded up small. I really liked the Waterrower but in the end I bought a Concept2 Model D new.
It cost nearly a grand, way beyond what I was intending to spend. But the resale value holds up well (10 year old machines go for £600!) so I know that if I want to sell it on I'll get back not much less than what I paid (take a look at Concept2's on eBay).
In fact, last time I looked Concept themselves were selling refurbed model C's on eBay.
another vote for concept2
also they do a thing where you can pay off for it over 10 months
and there's no interest
Sounds good but I think it may be his birthday/christmas presents for the next 10 years!
