Features Of Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine

Like I said earlier, this machine is one of the best in the market, and for a very good reason too.

  • It has a good resistance that gives you the feel of almost a real rowing boat.
  • It has the concept2_1-min[1]capacity of accommodating up to 500 pounds.
  • It also has a very good floor protector that makes it possible to remain stable and steady even when you engage in a vigorous workout.

Did you know that it has a ‘logo card’ that stores data about your workouts, which makes it possible for you to access your previous workout data?

  • The monitor has a 160×160 resolution that makes its clarity possible even from a distance.
  • Instead of having oars on both sides it has a chord at the middle/front to imitate the real rowing boat.
  • The flywheel was specially designed to have a low noise output that will allow you to listen to music while working out. This machine is designed to give a good performance such that you will be able to lose 250 to 500 calories per hour. However, that is depending on your fitness, and the resistance level you are using.
  • And the manual is quite easy to understand and to apply, nevertheless, first-time users have to re-read it before they can assemble it.


The only downside of this unit is that the seat is very low and may not be good for people with a knee or back injury.

    hi Nnamdi
    I agree that a rowing machine provides good cardio. I have used it in the past but I think the machine I was using was not that good quality. The one you mentioned here seems quite better. I like that it has a monitor just like an elliptical machine would. The price is a bit much but it seems to be in the range of most at home good cardio machines

      Hello Emily,
      Sometimes you end up with a sub standard rowing machine that will only break down after a while. Does it have a name? I will like to look it up.

  2. Forrest

    I have never seen this machine before, it looks awesome. I especially like the logo card feature where it stores your past work outs.
    How do you think this machine compares to something like the Chuck Norris Total Gym?

      Hello Forrest,

      Chuck Norris Total Gym is yet another machine I will be reviewing soon. I am intrigued by it and will be having a special review on soon.


      I have reviewed the Chuck Norris gym as promised, click here to read about it

    Thank you for the review of the Concept 2 Model D rowing machine. Are there other rowing machines you might recommend or ones you would recommend staying away from?

    1. Nnamdi

      Hello Marc,

      I would suggest concept2 Model E which is a little higher than the Model D. The difference is in there features and the materials they are made up of. For instance the Model D chain housing is partially enclosed, while Model E is fully enclosed. Also the Model D front legs are made up of aluminum and rear legs are made up of steel, but Model E both front and rear are made up of steel. Therefore model E is a lot more durable than D.

      As for which rowing machine would I give a ‘thumbs down’; there is none for now, however, most of the issue with rowing machines is lack of durability. And when you go and purchase a cheap one, chances are you are definitely not going to use it for too long.

      As soon as I come up with something that is not recommendable, I will let my audience know.

    Rowing a great cardiovascular exercise. I need to do this more myself. Great review about this rowing machine. I really should add this to my home gym.

    1. Nnamdi

      It is a great rowing machine, and you may also want to check out the Model E too.

    That’s a sweet price of awesome rowing machine. With its many advantages, it is definitely worth to buy.
    Thanks for reviewing it here.

      You are welcome edy, and I am glad you found the review interesting. Please do visit again.

  6. Debra

    Your review was really quiet informative. I like the fact that there is a 5 year warranty. Even tho this is a bit pricey, I will keep in the running with the others I have been looking at

    1. Nnamdi

      Hello Debra, you really think that the concept2 Model D is pricey? What could be too pricey for your body and health? I can understand if you say it is way over your budget, then you may go for something that is within your budget. But I will suggest you get one of those if you can afford it, and you will be glad you did.
