I love to row. I think it's a great exercise. It's just too darn cold to get out on the lake during the winter months. The gym I go to doesn't have an indoor rower, so a pal suggest I order one of these. I gotta tell you, it takes a bite outta your wallet at first, but it's worth it, man. I can't say it's the same feel as rowing on water, but where are you gonna put the oars if you got them going on an indoor machine! I'm a big guy, 6ft, and 260. So, some gym equipment is just too lightweight for me. Not this rower, it's meant for all sizes. It keeps my back and legs, as well as arms and abs in shape during the winter months. It's a great workout for when I can't get outdoors due to weather. It runs like a champ, very sturdy. It's got electronics on there to measure distances/speed and stuff, guess that's typical. I alternate days with this and my elliptical, and I got a full workout going on!
