I am sure you get letters like this all the time, but I wanted to say thanks for saving my life. On April 1, 2013, I "borrowed" my son's Concept 2 and started rowing. In 4 months, I have dropped 25 lbs, and traded in all of my fat jeans for size 32x32. More importantly, I feel great. When I first started, I couldn't row for more than a few minutes. It was scary how out of shape I was. No more. Thirty minutes is a piece of cake, and my times keep getting better and better. Thanks for a great piece of equipment. I just wish I would have started sooner.
