The Concept 2 Rowing Machine – Better Look at Its Special Features

The Concept 2 Rowing Machine – Better Look at Its Special Features

Article by Laura Diamond

Way back in the early 80s, the Concept 2 rowers made their introduction to the world. The machines are manufactured and shipped from Vermont, and the company created this rowing equipment just because they were so aware of the need to train in wintertime. The general objective is to make it possible to practice, or train, indoors if the rivers were all frozen and iced over. Another essential concern was the desire to make the very best using excellent standards for design and materials. As someone who has tried their rowing exercise machines, I can honestly say their machines function flawlessly. I will go further into details concerning the more notable qualities of this workout equipment.

There are two rowing machine models available, the Model D and E. If you want to spend less, then the Model D is the rower you want to purchase. Each rowing machine typically comes with a performance monitor of which there are two types, the PM3 and PM4. The Model D comes with a PM3, but you can change that to a PM4 at extra cost. The Model E rowing machine is available with the PM4 monitoring device as standard equipment. The Model E costs about 0 more than the Model D depending on which performance monitor you pick out.

What is actually helpful during exercising is you can use the performance monitors to watch your pulse while working out. The way you can do that with the pulse rate is with an additional unobtrusive gadget that you strap across your chest area. This monitoring device is very low profile and made of rubber, and the strap you use with it is like spandex and adjusts. The moment you start use the rowing machine, you will be preoccupied enough to the point where you will hardly notice it is there. The monitor is also a wireless device, so that means you won’t have to worry about wires dangling off of you.

The Concept 2 design utlizes a flywheel assembly that you will use to produce the resistance and make you feel that you are rowing on water. There are no safety issues with this because it is entirely covered in a plastic assembly. You can set the amount of resistance with a small lever located on the flywheel housing. When you are rowing you will hear the seat move back and forth, the chain movement and the whirringwhizzing of wind from the flywheel, and the noise level is very low. Since the flywheel is a lot like a fan, you are going to pick up a gentle swirling sound. But it is much softer than any fan because you will not be generating the same amount of RPM’s as an electrical fan. On the whole, you could easily use a Concept 2 rowing exercise machine in the next room without rousing others.

You can select the type of performance metrics that is most appropriate for you from a user-friendly menu on either the PM3 or PM4. Just a few of the available metrics include total rowing time, total distance rowed, 500 meter split times and number of rowing strokes per minute. Your approach will for the most part depend on by your current fitness level and general reason for using the rower. This primarily based on whether you are rowing for general fitness, or if you row competitively and what level you participate in.
