It does not appear that you need any new comments in support of the Dynamic Rower, but I love it. My day job impairs my ability to spend mornings on the river in my single scull.
The biggest surprise with the Dynamic was how much better it feels on my old back. I was in an automobile accident on my way to the Olympic trials in 1992. The accident resulted in back surgery to remove a lumbar disc (L5-S1). One of my physicians told me that I would never row again. Twenty-two years later, I am still rowing, but I will confess standard ergs (even on slides) bother my back. On-the-water rowing is much easier on it. The Dynamic is a different. Because it eliminates the back-and-forth shift of body mass, it gives me a terrific workout with dramatically less wear-and-tear on my lower back. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I am looking forward to another twenty-two years with Concept2.
