  1. 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. 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.

      Update!!!

    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?

    • 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.

  4. 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.

  5. I have used this one at my college gym. It is great to use it for working out.
    That’s a sweet price of awesome rowing machine. With its many advantages, it is definitely worth to buy.
    Thanks for reviewing it here.

    Cheers,
    Edy

  6. 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

    • 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.
