About 5 years ago I was having some health problems…overweight, migraine headaches, and high cholesterol. I was told to exercise, but I was always on my feet as a golf instructor. I had to find a way to exercise that would avoid pounding my feet and legs. I was introduced to the Concept2 rowing machine at my gym. Five years later, 75 lbs lighter, and normal cholesterol, I am approaching 4 million meters and best of all no migraines for 5 years! I have also discovered a way to relax, listen to music and just relax to reduce stress. Thanks for making exercise fun!
