Concept2 Model E Indoor Rowing Machine | The World’s Best Home Rower?

Concept2 manufactures two high-end indoor rowing machines, the Model E and the Model D. These machines can be viewed as a lifetime investment for those interested in bringing a professional gym-quality rower into the home.

The most striking difference between the two models is the height of the Model E -- at 20 inches above the floor the seat is about the height of a normal chair. In addition, the monitor arm is longer and fixed in place and the standard steel chain in the Model D has been upgraded to nickel plated steel in the Model E.

This is a durable and precise piece of exercise equipment. The rowing action and sliding seat movement are super smooth and secure, affording an efficient total body workout. The flywheel is engineered to reduce noise while providing the visceral sensation of rowing on water.

The Model E features a self-calibrating PM4 Performance Monitor that displays workout data in five display options. Automatic operation means you don't have to press a single button; just begin rowing and the monitor turns on and provides feedback. The monitor accurately tracks distance, speed, pace, calories and watts.

The removable LogCard records results and preferences and a Garmin chest belt is included for heart rate monitoring. The built-in wireless technology is also compatible with Polar heart rate monitors.

Free online motivational tools include the Concept2 online logbook, rowing challenges and a training forum.

The rower requires 9 x 4 feet of space but easily separates into two parts for storage and includes caster wheels for easy transport.

Indoor rowing is an impact-free, complete exercise, working the arms, legs, chest, back and abs. It's ideal for cross-training, losing weight, toning muscle, cardiovascular training and injury rehabilitation.
