A Closer Look at The Concept 2 Rowing machine


Concept 2 rowing workout machines appeared a few decades ago in 1981. The snowfall in Vermont, where the machines are made, caused this company to start producing them in response to the harsh elements. The main goal is to make it possible to work out, or train, indoors if the rivers were all frozen and iced over. However, they intentionally wanted to construct the very best rowing exercise equipment possible employing intelligent design principles. As someone who has tried their rowers, I can honestly say their machines function flawlessly. I will provide details touching on the more notable qualities of this workout machine.

The options are pretty upfront, you can get the Model D or the Model E. If you wish to spend less, then the Model D is the model you want to purchase. The essential accessory that accompanies every Concept 2 rowing machine is the PM3 or PM4 performance monitor. The PM3 is a standard feature on the Model D rower with a choice to upgrade to the PM4. The other choice, which is pricier, is the E rowing exercise equipment with the PM4 monitoring device. The Model E costs about $350 more than the Model D depending on which monitoring device you pick out.

The monitors, PM3 and PM4, are sleek designs that provide the most crucial metrics for monitoring your pulse rate and rowing stats. Your pulse rate is monitored by a device that you place across your chest. This monitoring device is very low profile and made of rubber, and the strap that comes with it is like spandex and is very elastic. As soon as you start use the rowing machine, you will be preoccupied enough to the point where you will not be able to notice it. There are no wires either as the info is sent out to the monitoring device.

The resistance to rowing is done by utilizing an intelligently designed flywheel that is very much like a manual fan. The flywheel is inside a plastic assembly so you won’t accidentally touch it while you are rowing. You can set the amount of resistance using a small lever found on the flywheel housing. When you are rowing you will hear the seat go to and fro, the chain movement and the whirring whizzing of wind from the flywheel, and the noise level is very low. As you row, the fan-like flywheel gives off a quiet sound, and you can feel the air movement at certain angles. This moving air sound from the flywheel assembly is similar to a fan that is on slowly. You could put this rower in just about any room and be able to use it without disrupting anyone who is sleeping.

You can observe your rowing speed, plus other information, from the PM3 or PM4 performance monitors. There are adequate data types to meet the needs of either competitive rowers or someone who wants a great exercise. Your approach will mostly be based on by your current fitness level and general reason for using the rowing exercise machine. For example, if you are a competitive rower, you will most likely keep your eye on different stats from other competitive rowers.
