Looking To Buy A Rowing Machine, But Which One?


#1

I have around £300 ($485) MAXIMUM to spend and am looking for a decent Rowing Machine.

Do you guys have any idea what type of Rowing Machine to look for with a budget of around £300?

I know that the Concept 2 is currently the best on the market apparently, but with a price of over £1,000 ($1,610) I can't afford it, so I'm looking for something that is of decent quality & lastable.

I'd like it to have a respectable amount of resistance so that I'm able to perform HIIT type workouts on it if possible.

Thanks guys, would really appreciate some ideas/names of decent rowers if you know of any.

I own this one. A firefighter friend mentioned the firehouse gyms generally have them as part of their gym equipment.

Here in the states we have thrift stores and second hand sports stores that carry training equipment to fit your price range. Do they have them in England?
