abunda_amazon_reviews It IS nice to know we can still do it BETTER than China every once in a while! This rowing machine could not have been easier to assemble (all of 10 minutes, if that much) …...and VERY ROBUSTLY made! I've been a licensed mechanical and civil engineer (now retired) and I know good build quality AND for that matter, "EXCELLENT" design quality as well. Just get on and row! Well,...spend a half hour or so on you tube to look at basic beginner's rowing technique(they all feature Concept 2's , BTW)--- and your off and away! I used to use and still have a gym quality tread mill, but arthritis is really setting in bad in recent years and with all this crazy rain and unusually cold weather in May, it just is too much pounding on the knees and hips so, I do short 5 minute semi-sprints or slow ones, if that's what I feel like, to build up my cardio rate and then hop off and hit the weight bench. I go back to the rower for another 5 or 10 minutes (I put it at resistance level 3 and try to stay around 25-30 rows per minute) and all is well. After those ,I do some curls for the biceps and then overhead triceps presses. I'm 67 this month and am rapidly starting to feel more energy, stamina, and strength. Mind you,...I don't go overboard. I'm just trying to strengthen the muscles that keep my knees, hips and neck in place and the Concept 2 rower is superb for all around cardio w/o too much vertical stress on the knees, hips, and neck! I have degenerative disc disease caused by osteoarthritis ( which is the gradual eroding away of the cartilage in between my neck discs, knee and hip joints.) My mother had the rheumatoid variety real bad, so its probably genetic and in my early retirement, I just did not keep up to snuff w/ physical exercise and gained about 40 extra pounds over the last 15 years. The good life CAN kill ya but; my new mantra is,... all things in moderation! Including the exercise (usually 3 to 4 times a week, though the rower makes it so easy to jump on for some quick cardio any time! I've had really expensive pieces of exercise equipment that wound up being clothes hangers and dust collectors but not so with this sleek, well built machine! Mind you, don't buy into that nonsense of needing a seat pad for extra comfort or anything like that. The concept 2 seat is just fine even on this tired, old, arthritic, boney, butt! Surprisingly, I do find that, after a session with the machine, I feel stronger in ALL the problem joints! I highly recommend this unit. 100 percent USA made and excellent customer service with a 10 year guarantee! Can't beat that for just under a grand! It really is a no brainer with Prime. Use it (save the packing of course , which is not a complex deal) for a few weeks and if its NOT for you,...send it back for free! BTW....contrary to the website (or Amazon's) description, you only need a 9 foot by 40 inch footprint (IF SPACE IS TIGHT!) Please also note that I'm on the short side at 5' 7" tall and 23" wide at the shoulders and 225 lbs. Leave it set up and don't take it apart every time you finish using it because, although it is fairly easy to "click" assemble from 2 pieces (rail and actual pull chain to activate wind resistance mechanism),... you'll find you won't use it as often (or at all) if you have to take the minute or so to "snap it together! Hey folks,...spend a small fortune in time, energy, and money buying stuff that I use here on amazon so, if this review was HELPFUL,....well you know what to do! Many thanks ladies and gents!;;Reviewed in the United States on May 14, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Incredible machine,..built like a tank! Definitely worth the dough!;;Audiophile MB (Marco B.-NYC);;;We bought this on Amazon and had the device within two days. We thought long and hard before buying a rowing machine, in part because of the financial commitment and in part because we live in a small apartment and really don't need a clothes hanger. We ultimately decided that the impact on our décor was less important than the health and fitness benefits of daily, low impact exercise. Settling on the Concept 2 Model D was easy. I was tempted by the luxurious looking wooden water rowers (smaller footprint, easier storage, more home friendly appearance). But, the gym has the Concept 2, and my experience has been that the air blowing from the fan chamber keeps you cool while working out. Rowing in dead air did not seem attractive. Another factor is that we were familiar with the quality of this machine. It will outlast us. This machine rides like a Cadillac. We live in an apartment, as I mentioned, and my Mom's first question was, "won't the neighbor's hear it?" Answer: no. This machine does not rumble. It is smooth and quiet. The fan is the only source of noise. The seat glides in near silence and the chain-pully thing is also nearly silent. There is no noise transmitting into the floor. I can also watch TV at just over normal volume and hear everything. Having this machine in the house is great. A 15 minute workout in the morning takes 15 minutes and 30 seconds. There is no packing a gym bag, no back and forth to the gym, no OMG moment when you realize you forgot your shower shoes. Just hop on, row and relax, then proceed with your normal routine at home. Did I mention this machine is smooth? We have no regrets with this choice.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 2, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Settling on the Concept 2 Model D Was Easy;;Bailey;;;As a former fitness instructor, when I wanted to get back in shape, a rower/ergometer was the only all-in-one exercise machine I considered. Rowers work almost every part of the body. It's easy on the joints and packs a lot of exercise into a little amount of time. Seriously, get a rower. I looked at many brands and was put off by the negative reviews that inevitably found a glaring deal-breaker in every rower I examined. But time and again, one rower came up as recommended—and with no deal-breaking issues: Concept 2 Model D. Upon receiving the unit (which was shipped in perfect shape and in just two days from Amazon), my son and I had it moved downstairs, out of the box, set up, and operating in just 15 minutes. Outstanding design. Simply one of the easiest to assemble pieces of exercise equipment I have ever used. What immediately strikes you about the Concept 2 Model D is how well-made it looks and feels. Every piece of this device is best in class. Other rowers just don't compare. The Concept 2 Model D is a Tesla among Yugos when it comes to air-resistance rowers. Everything from the manuals to the box it came in screams quality. You are getting your money's worth, and that feels good in this day and age. PROS + Cardiovascular and whole-body workout. + Assembly is a breeze, and tools for assembly are included. + Excellent design, both in setup and use. + Sturdy. Can handle up to 500 pounds when other rowers max out at 250 or 300. + Long rail, which makes it great for very tall users. + Smooth rowing action, with durable chain-driven mechanism. + 10 levels of air resistance that actually feel like 10 different difficulty settings. + Adjustable, easily read, backlit display, with large numbers. + Multiple, built-in, programmable workouts, games, and ways to maximize the exercise time + Secure footrests. + USB flash drive access for storing workouts. + Heart-rate monitor (not included) connects wirelessly. + Effortlessly moved, light weight and with wheeled front end. + Includes a two-year warranty and 30-day money back guarantee. + Worth the money, and you'll feel you got what you wanted, no disappointments. MIXED * Display is a little 1990s in look, feel, and operation, but that's being picky. CONS - Seat may not be comfortable for some people—the main reason for a star loss. Ah, the seat. For me, it's the Achilles heel of the unit. I hate the seat. For whatever reason, it irritates my tailbone despite having a cut-out section to account for this. My wife and son also use the rower and have no complaints about the seat or anything else about the rower. But perhaps the seat just is not the best for someone who is 6' 4" tall and 240 pounds. In truth, I don't have much of a keister for a man my size, so it's not like I'm overflowing the seat, which is generously sized. I'm unclear why this is a problem. So, while everything else about the unit is superb, I find the seat very uncomfortable. YMMV. I understand gel seat covers for Concept 2 Model D rower exist, and I am considering buying one. If not for this issue, I'd have nothing bad to say about the Concept 2 Model. So, perhaps not a deal-breaker, but still a little bit of a disappointment in an otherwise perfect product. SUMMARY Buy a Concept 2 Model D, and don't waste your money on any other sub-$1,000 rower. The differences are enormous and worth it. The only competition for the Model D is the Model E. The Concept 2 Model E costs $200 more, but it sits much higher (to get on and off easier, especially for those with mobility issues), has a sturdier base, and features double-powder-coated metal surfaces for extra durability. Most people will opt for the Model D, and it's the bestseller. When you enjoy an exercise machine and it works perfectly, you'll use it more, which is the whole point. With the exception of my feelings about the seat, everything else about the Concept 2 Model D is a joy. Really, just buy it. You'll love the you it helps you create.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 6, 2017;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Really, the only choice in an under-$1,000 rower;;Daniel L. Edelen

Including the exercise (usually 3 to 4 times a week, though the rower makes it so easy to jump on for some quick cardio any time! I've had really expensive pieces of exercise equipment that wound up being clothes hangers and dust collectors but not so with this sleek, well built machine! Mind you, don't buy into that nonsense of needing a seat pad for extra comfort or anything like that. The concept 2 seat is just fine even on this tired, old, arthritic, boney, butt! Surprisingly, I do find that, after a session with the machine, I feel stronger in ALL the problem joints! I highly recommend this unit. 100 percent USA made and excellent customer service with a 10 year guarantee! Can't beat that for just under a grand! It really is a no brainer with Prime. Use it (save the packing of course , which is not a complex deal) for a few weeks and if its NOT for you,...send it back for free! BTW....contrary to the website (or Amazon's) description, you only need a 9 foot by 40 inch footprint (IF SPACE IS TIGHT!) Please also note that I'm on the short side at 5' 7" tall and 23" wide at the shoulders and 225 lbs. Leave it set up and don't take it apart every time you finish using it because, although it is fairly easy to "click" assemble from 2 pieces (rail and actual pull chain to activate wind resistance mechanism),... you'll find you won't use it as often (or at all) if you have to take the minute or so to "snap it together! Hey folks,...spend a small fortune in time, energy, and money buying stuff that I use here on amazon so, if this review was HELPFUL,....well you know what to do! Many thanks ladies and gents!

Settling on the Concept 2 Model D Was Easy
We bought this on Amazon and had the device within two days. We thought long and hard before buying a rowing machine, in part because of the financial commitment and in part because we live in a small apartment and really don't need a clothes hanger. We ultimately decided that the impact on our décor was less important than the health and fitness benefits of daily, low impact exercise. Settling on the Concept 2 Model D was easy. I was tempted by the luxurious looking wooden water rowers (smaller footprint, easier storage, more home friendly appearance). But, the gym has the Concept 2, and my experience has been that the air blowing from the fan chamber keeps you cool while working out. Rowing in dead air did not seem attractive. Another factor is that we were familiar with the quality of this machine. It will outlast us. This machine rides like a Cadillac. We live in an apartment, as I mentioned, and my Mom's first question was, "won't the neighbor's hear it?" Answer: no. This machine does not rumble. It is smooth and quiet. The fan is the only source of noise. The seat glides in near silence and the chain-pully thing is also nearly silent. There is no noise transmitting into the floor. I can also watch TV at just over normal volume and hear everything. Having this machine in the house is great. A 15 minute workout in the morning takes 15 minutes and 30 seconds. There is no packing a gym bag, no back and forth to the gym, no OMG moment when you realize you forgot your shower shoes. Just hop on, row and relax, then proceed with your normal routine at home. Did I mention this machine is smooth? We have no regrets with this choice.

Really, the only choice in an under-$1,000 rower
As a former fitness instructor, when I wanted to get back in shape, a rower/ergometer was the only all-in-one exercise machine I considered. Rowers work almost every part of the body. It's easy on the joints and packs a lot of exercise into a little amount of time. Seriously, get a rower. I looked at many brands and was put off by the negative reviews that inevitably found a glaring deal-breaker in every rower I examined. But time and again, one rower came up as recommended—and with no deal-breaking issues: Concept 2 Model D. Upon receiving the unit (which was shipped in perfect shape and in just two days from Amazon), my son and I had it moved downstairs, out of the box, set up, and operating in just 15 minutes. Outstanding design. Simply one of the easiest to assemble pieces of exercise equipment I have ever used. What immediately strikes you about the Concept 2 Model D is how well-made it looks and feels. Every piece of this device is best in class. Other rowers just don't compare. The Concept 2 Model D is a Tesla among Yugos when it comes to air-resistance rowers. Everything from the manuals to the box it came in screams quality. You are getting your money's worth, and that feels good in this day and age. PROS + Cardiovascular and whole-body workout. + Assembly is a breeze, and tools for assembly are included. + Excellent design, both in setup and use. + Sturdy. Can handle up to 500 pounds when other rowers max out at 250 or 300. + Long rail, which makes it great for very tall users. + Smooth rowing action, with durable chain-driven mechanism. + 10 levels of air resistance that actually feel like 10 different difficulty settings. + Adjustable, easily read, backlit display, with large numbers. + Multiple, built-in, programmable workouts, games, and ways to maximize the exercise time + Secure footrests. + USB flash drive access for storing workouts. + Heart-rate monitor (not included) connects wirelessly. + Effortlessly moved, light weight and with wheeled front end. + Includes a two-year warranty and 30-day money back guarantee. + Worth the money, and you'll feel you got what you wanted, no disappointments. MIXED * Display is a little 1990s in look, feel, and operation, but that's being picky. CONS - Seat may not be comfortable for some people—the main reason for a star loss. Ah, the seat. For me, it's the Achilles heel of the unit. I hate the seat. For whatever reason, it irritates my tailbone despite having a cut-out section to account for this. My wife and son also use the rower and have no complaints about the seat or anything else about the rower. But perhaps the seat just is not the best for someone who is 6' 4" tall and 240 pounds. In truth, I don't have much of a keister for a man my size, so it's not like I'm overflowing the seat, which is generously sized. I'm unclear why this is a problem. So, while everything else about the unit is superb, I find the seat very uncomfortable. YMMV. I understand gel seat covers for Concept 2 Model D rower exist, and I am considering buying one. If not for this issue, I'd have nothing bad to say about the Concept 2 Model. So, perhaps not a deal-breaker, but still a little bit of a disappointment in an otherwise perfect product. SUMMARY Buy a Concept 2 Model D, and don't waste your money on any other sub-$1,000 rower. The differences are enormous and worth it. The only competition for the Model D is the Model E. The Concept 2 Model E costs $200 more, but it sits much higher (to get on and off easier, especially for those with mobility issues), has a sturdier base, and features double-powder-coated metal surfaces for extra durability. Most people will opt for the Model D, and it's the bestseller. When you enjoy an exercise machine and it works perfectly, you'll use it more, which is the whole point. With the exception of my feelings about the seat, everything else about the Concept 2 Model D is a joy. Really, just buy it. You'll love the you it helps you create.
