I've been rowing since I first purchased a Model B in 1989. I wish I would have kept better track of my meters then, as my wild and audacious goal is to be the "all-time meters rowed" rower. Longevity will help.
The Concept2 Indoor Rower is magical—an all-body workout and a wonderful way to set goals as we age. I prefer meters to speed as you may have guessed.
I also love the company. Concept2 has awesome products with excellent customer outreach. It's almost funny what one will do for a T-shirt and the other assorted prizes Concept2 offers. The online community is also wonderful. I really enjoy reading about fellow rowers and what they have accomplished. Keep it up!
