Rowing Machine

In one of out local store, there is currently a rowing machine, which costs only 80 instead of 200$.. I would like to know, if such an acquisition is worthwhile or if the devices in the studio are better. Do you have a Rowing Machine at home? Do you use it often?

Here in the UK we dont need our own rowing machines. We use our washed up dimwitted politicians to row us about.

Sadly, I'm beginning to think Drew and Janhank are correct.
We do appear to being invaded by trolls or the like, perhaps paid by vertical slope to up the post count.

Come back rayrecrock all is forgiven, yours fears were well founded.

Hi
I have a Rowing Machine from Concept 2 (before buying it I informed myself here https://home2outdoor.com/best-rowing-machine/ you will find some interesting information on that site). At first, I rowed regularly (about 10 km every 2 days). But at some point, it gets boring at least for me. I think you can not say in advance if it's fun, but if you buy yourself a coach it's important in my opinion that you always have music ready and in summer you have the opportunity to go outside.
I think rowing on the water is just a lot more interesting ... I would also before purchasing a Rowing Machine, try it somewhere for example, in a gym or a taster day in a rowing club...

Rowing on the water can be a surprise too, as you usually have to take the boat back, you might not discover that you're tired until a long way from the boathouse.

Rubbish Kev! I rowed the entire length of the Caledonian canal once including Loch Ness from Fort William to Inverness for charity in a wooden Norwegian Dinghy . Ok I was about 22 and fit(ish). I was buggered if I was rowing it back though.
