Features of Concept2 Model D
The Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine is as popular (and a bit less expensive) as the Model E of the same manufacturers and for good reasons too. Besides being a tough rower in terms of build quality, it offers protection to your floors with its built-in parts. The machine gives your body a great workout session by focusing on your arms and legs and thighs. Best thing is, you will get actual rowing-like experience while riding the machine due to the flexibility it has. The sensitive parts of the machine (e.g. the chains) are coated with nickel to ensure they are well protected. The machine also reduces noise by using a custom-made flywheel.
The seat and the handlebars are very well equipped with pads and the latter are cushioned with textured rubbers to avoid accidents due to slipping. It burns 300 to 500 units of calorie inside an hour. It has the weight limit of 500 lbs. which is a big plus if you ask me.
The Display Monitor
Concept2 has one of the best configured display units installed in its Model D Indoor Rowing Machine. Check your distance meter, the time you rowed for, the strokes you made and the heartbeat rate efficiently with the monitor. Also, you can transfer and save your progress in a computer through the supplied USB cord and the Logo Card. The best thing is, the monitor stores the data for several weeks itself. One can also upload the data to myfitnesspall.com if he wishes so. Another plus point of this machine is the resolution it offers. It has 160X160 resolution which is second to none. You can read the stats from a distance.
How Comfortable Is the Model
To answer the question, let us focus on the building of the machine. Alongside sturdy materials, it uses ergonometric model. The seat adjusts well with any type of body shape. Resistance also works well for this model. You will find the friction strong enough to make every muscle of your body work the extra mile. The machine gives you easy gliding motion to work with. The steel exterior is filled with aluminum on the inside. The steel exterior makes the machine easy to clean. You will need just a moist cloth to wipe the dust off the surface. For storage, you can separate the whole machine into two parts with the “Easy Release Feature” and then stack the parts one against the other.
The Negatives of the Rower
Concept2 Model D Indoor Rower Machine has few blemishes as well. The seat is lower than its contemporaries. That makes it not so senior citizen friendly. If you have problems in the lower part of your body, you are better off without it.
Many Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine Reviewers gave it “Two Thumbs Up” in their reviews. The minor issues can be patched with few extra minutes of attention. After that, it is the most efficient machine you could have asked for in terms of reliability and quality.
