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

Article by Laura Diamond

We all first learned of Concept 2 rower exercise machines three decades ago. The company is based in Vermont where the winters can be extremely cold with lots of snow. So it adds up that designing a high quality rowing machine for use indoors would be a terrific idea. Another important concern was the desire to develop the very best using excellent standards for design and materials. The person writing this article, me of course, is a Concept 2 customer, and I really can tell you how happy I am with their product. So I’ll mention several important information in this review of Concept 2 rowing workout machines.

The Concept 2 company produces the Model D and E with the Model E rowing machine being pricier. If you prefer to spend less, then the Model D is the model you want to look at. The basic accessory that accompanies every Concept 2 rowing machine 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 includes the PM4 with it as the primary performance monitor. The Model D has the cheapest pricetag of 0 and higher price with the improved performance monitor.

What is actually helpful during exercising is you can use the performance monitors to determine your heart rate while working out. The way you can do that with the pulse rate is with an additional unobtrusive device that you place across your chest area. You may think heart rate monitor will be noticeable and cause discomfort, but that isn’t true. I can tell you from personal experience that it will not even be thought of while you are rowing. There are no wires either because the information is sent to the monitoring device.

The only thing requiredthat’s needed is the resistance to simulate a rowing action, and that is achieved with a flywheel on the front of the machine. There are no safety issues with this because it is entirely covered in a plastic assembly. You can adjust the amount of resistance through a small lever found on the flywheel housing. There are also no concerns with noise since the overall machine is almost quiet during rowing. Since the flywheel is a lot like a fan, of course you can notice a gentle swirling sound. But it is much more silent than any fan because you will not be generating the same amount of RPM’s as a fan does. Overall, you could easily use a Concept 2 rower in the next room without waking others.

Either performance monitor also enables you to observe various kinds of data about your rowing in real time. It is helpful from the standpoint of your progress to track your total distance rowed, how long it took you to do it, or even the speed in which you can perform a stroke And so it all comes down to your reasons for using the rower beyond your main goal to get and stay in shape. For instance, if you are a competitive rower, you will in all probability pay attention to different stats from other competitive rowers.
