Good! Thanks for the report. It is especially encouraging to hear that you had no soreness or injuries. The same is true for me so far, and I intend to keep it that way if I can.

100% retired since 2009 and never plan to work for anybody ever again, paid or not. Retirement funded by Social Security, mini-pension, and investments (AA 45:55, mostly Vanguard). Debt free with no mortgage and over-the-moon happy to be retired.

That's so great! I remember well the one we had at my old gym. I probably doubled (or more) my time on it - didn't use it that often, and it wasn't the focus of my training, but I always thought it would be great to have at home. It's the only rowing machine I ever felt I could use properly and I think if I could spend more time with one I could really build up some stamina not to mention upper body conditioning.

Man, I really want one of those! One of these days.....


I never saw it folded up and didn't realize that was an option. Does it fold up well?

I've been using a Concept 2 for years at home and it's one great machine. It does a great job of keeping my weight down in the 265 range.
