The Concept 2 Rower – Better Look at Its Notable Features

The Concept 2 Rower – Better Look at Its Notable Features

Article by Laura Ledesma

We all first became aware of Concept 2 rower exercise machines in 1981. The snowfall in Vermont, where they are made, compelled this company to begin producing them in answer to the harsh elements. The simple goal is to make it possible to exercise, or train, indoors if the rivers were all frozen and iced over. Another important concern was the desire to make the very best using superior criteria for design and materials. I have the unique position to write about this since I have been a user of a Concept 2 for almost a decade. This article will review this special and versatile rowing exercise machine for those who are thinking about getting one to enjoy.

The Concept 2 company produces the Model D and E with the Model E rower being costlier. Take note, however, the Model D rower can be bought with separate options depending on your requirements. The essential accessory that accompanies every Concept 2 is the PM3 or PM4 performance monitor. The Model D is accompanied by a PM3, although you can choose to have a PM4 at extra cost. The other pick, which is costlier, is the E rowing exercise equipment with the PM4 performance monitor. The Model D has the least pricetag of 0 and higher price with the better performance monitor.

The monitors, PM3 and PM4, are sleek designs that offer the most essential metrics for monitoring your heart rate and rowing stats. Your pulse rate is monitored by use of a comfortable device that you strap across your chest. This sensor is very low profile and made of rubber, and the strap you use with it is like spandex and is very elastic. Once you begin rowing you will hardly notice that it is there. The data from the monitoring device is actually transmitted to the PM3 or PM4 for processing and display.

The resistance to rowing is accomplished by using an intelligently designed flywheel that is very much like a manual fan. The flywheel is enclosed in a suitably designed housing for safety reasons. The way you modify the resistance level with rowing is a mechanical, and manual, lever on the flywheel. If you are thinking this is something that will create noise, then that is not the case since this rowing machine is very quiet. While you are rowing, the fan-like flywheel gives off a low whirring sound, and you can feel the air movement at certain angles. But it is much softer than any fan because you will not be producing the same amount of RPM’s as a fan does. You could put this rower in just about any room and be able to use it without causing any noise problems.

You can pick out the type of performance metrics that is most appropriate for you from a user-friendly menu on either the PM3 or PM4. It is helpful from the standpoint of your progress to know how far you rowed, how long it took you to do it, or even how fast you can perform a stroke Your specific needs will help you in determining what you want to keep track of and what is not so important. Many rowers who compete at the collegiate level use the Concept 2 to train, so they will by nature pay attention to specific data types.
