Just wanted to send you a note of appreciation for your wonderful company and product. I have been searching for a form of cardio that my dysfunctional knees/hips can handle, and that I can also have in my small studio apartment. Turns out, your rower fits PERFECTLY in the only open floor space I have left. And it faces my TV. Which is key. Your rower was delivered quickly and was packed to perfection. And, because it is to lightweight, I was able to get the machine up four flights of stairs by myself—and I'm a 5ft 4inch blond girl!! that would never be possible with an elliptical or treadmill. So happy. Then, as I unpacked it, I was even more happy to find out how easy it was to put everything together. And now, I have a fully functional gym in my home! I'm blown away by every step of this process, from the ease of ordering all the way to the quality feel and attractive look of the machine. I'm in love. And as a beginner rower, I'm having to keep myself off the machine so I don't go too hard too fast! Amazing.Athlete
The Dynamic is a great tool to feel how a boat moves. It doesn’t have the draw you get from the chain on the standard model and therefore you ‘have to’ create a momentum and flow to your stroke similar to that of rowing a single. There is a small amount of elasticity in the machine but you have to keep your hands moving etc like you do when you row on the water. You also have to have a ‘hang’ to be able to drive your legs and have a natural body open through the stroke. A constant rhythm will allow you to be efficient and sustain and good training pace. I personally feel that I have been able to adjust my technique on the Dynamic to that of what we are trying to achieve on the water. It has helped a lot with being able to work on what I perceive to be the best way of moving a boat out on the water.
First off, I am very used to the Model E and must say I love it. So much so that I was extremely hesitant to try the Dynamic. Once I saw the Dynamic video I knew I just had to take the chance and upgrade. I can tell you this was my best move. For some reason I never tried the slides but always wanted to try them. With the Dynamic I got them and I just kick my self everyday for not doing this sooner. The new double movement shaved off 2 minutes on my 3000 meter (huge), and I feel every back muscle get that much stronger every time I use it. And WOW the pectorals and external obliques, can you say goodbye to the love handles or what! There is not one muscle group neglected. Total choice workout.
I just started rowing indoor almost a year ago, have never actually rowed on the water. One of my cardiac rehab patients did a lot of rowing and introduced me to your website. This past year I have logged almost 4 million meters and currently have two number one times for the year and few others that are number two or three. I absolutely love the feeling I get after a rowing workout, it is the best total body workout there is: legs, arms, core, everything. I went to my first meet in February and placed 2nd, my goal is to qualify for a free trip to Boston next year, so close this year...

I want to thank your company for making the equipment that turned me into what my orthopedic surgeon calls a "medical miracle." He has never seen a patient recuperate so quickly from a total knee replacement. I could walk without crutches two days after surgery, drive my car in ten days and was totally off pain medication in two weeks. It's been six weeks now, and I'm still not perfect but I'm getting there.
