The Concept 2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine is an expensive piece of fitness equipment sold online. There are two sub-models of D – PM3 and PM4. PM3 sells for $900 and PM4 sells for $1050. Both units come with shipping and handling charges. Rowing is considered one of the best exercises for a total body workout, but most dieters are not willing to spend $1000 on a home fitness machine. Concept offers a 30-day money back guarantee on the Concept 2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine. The unit measures 8 feet long and 2 feet wide. The machine requires a space of 9 feet by 4 feet to work properly. The weight limit for the user is 500 pounds, much higher than other fitness equipment.

Product Features

When it comes to working out, dieter want the best bang for their buck and rowing is the best bang. The Concept 2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine is a premium machine reserved for the serious dieter. The price limits the dieters who can afford to use the machine.

For the $1000 price tag, dieters receive a compact rowing machine that breaks down into two parts for storage and movement. A built in performance monitor allows the user to store and upload workout details. The PM4 model comes with a chest band and heart rate monitor. Chain oil comes with the machine so regular maintenance is required.

After assembling the machine, users simply sit in the seat and grab the handlebars to start rowing. It may take some time to get used to the rowing movement, especially for beginners, but after a few minutes movement becomes more fluid. We have no idea if the rowing machine allows the user to adjust tension.

The Concept 2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine is a bit too expensive for most dieters. The price of one machine is the same as up to five years of gym access. Dieters who love to row may feel inclined to purchase the machine, but they must ensure they have adequate space for a rower before buying. This unit requires a large, open space for use. There is no diet associated with the Concept 2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine. Weight loss is not discussed in the product description.
