I really need to start getting some regular cardio exercise. The only way I think I'll stick with it is if I can do it while watching TV. I also don't have a lot of space and want to keep it low impact. I like swimming, but it's such a pain to get to the pool, swim, get home, etc. Especially with our winters and the whole chlorine thing. So I think a rowing machine would make a great option. Small, low impact, full body. I've been trying to do some internet searching but haven't been getting too far. Keep ending up at Concept2 stuff. Or the Rowing Machine Direct/Superstore website. The Concept2 would be great, but it's a little on the pricey side. The superstore website also lists this one: http://www.rowingmachinedirect.com/r...Rowing_Machine Looks good except there is no variable resistance I'm aware of and I'm a little concerned about the durability of the mechanism that retracts the cable. Anybody own this rower? Thoughts? Any online resources someone has found on rowing machines? Other rowers I should consider? Or should I just suck it up and get a Concept2?
