The Concept 2 Rowing Workout Equipment – Better Look at Its Unique Features

Article by Laura Diamond

Concept 2 rowing workout machines began making their appearance several decades ago in 1981. The snowfall in Vermont, where they are manufactured, caused this company to begin producing them in response to the harsh elements. That was the driving thought to create a means by which rowers would not have to wait for the temperatures to get warm to enjoy their sport. Another great concern was the desire to make the very best using superior criteria for design and materials. As someone who has tried their rowing machines, I can personally say their machines perform flawlessly. I will provide details touching on the more important qualities of this exercise equipment.

There are two models available, the Model D and E. The Model E comes just as you see it, but the Model D is available with an option of performance monitor. The basic accessory that comes with every Concept 2 is the PM3 or PM4 performance monitor. If you need a better monitor with the Model D rower, then you will have to pick out the D model with the improved monitor. The pricier Model E always has the PM4 with it as the primary monitor. The Model E costs about 0 more than the Model D based on which monitoring device you choose.

The performance monitoring devices, PM3 and PM4, are sleek designs that provide the most important metrics for monitoring your pulse and rowing stats. There is an enclosed heart rate sensor you wear across your chest, and there is a strap that holds it in place. You may think the sensor will be noticeable and be uncomfortable, but that is not the case. As soon as you begin rowing, you will be preoccupied enough to the point where you will easily forget about it. There are no wires either as the info is sent to the performance monitor.

The resistance to rowing is done by using an intelligently designed flywheel that is a good deal like a manual fan. The flywheel is placed in a fittingly designed housing for safety intents. You can set the amount of resistance through a small lever found on the flywheel housing. When you are rowing you will hear the seat travel to and fro, the chain movement and the whir of wind from the flywheel, and the noise level is very low. During rowing operations, 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 creating the same amount of RPM’s as an electrical fan. Unless someone in the other room is a very light sleeper, you won’t be disturbing other people.

You can track your rowing speed, plus other information, from the PM3 or PM4 monitors. Among the available performance metrics include total rowing time, total distance rowed, 500 meter split times and number of strokes per minute. Your approach will mostly be based on by your current physical health and general reason for using the rower. Assuming you are a competitive rower, you will in all probability pay attention to different stats from other competitive rowers.
