Kim, active indoor rower |

Hi and welcome to my review site – my name is Kim (born in Denmark 1960).

I assume you are here because you are researching on Indoor Rowing Machines before deciding to buy your own rowing ergometer.

Since 2004 I have been a passionated user of the Concept2 RowErg® – and I would like to help you by providing some useful information about the RowErg®.

(The well known Concept2 Model D and Model E was renamed “RowErg” effective April 2021. The only difference is the new name and machine graphics).

I have built this site and done the research to gather and organize comprehensive and relevant information for you.

The list price for a new one is around 1,220 USD (payment plans are possible), and for a used one it’s a few hundred dollars lower. The relatively high second-hand price is due to its popularity, which is your proof of a safe investment that holds its value.

If you regret your purchase, you can always sell again with minimal loss.
