Amazon had this delivered in two days via UPS. Came in a strong secure box, well packed with large pieces of Styrofoam.
UPS brought this via handtruck to my back door. Since the total package weighs about 70 pounds there was no way I was going to be able to get this into my house (My roommate is disabled, so I have no one to help me.). I opened the box outside and planned to bring the pieces into the house. There are just two main pieces - the Flywheel and the seat frame. I brought them in and had this machine together in literally less than 10 minutes. There are just 8 screws to put this machine together. (They even included a screwdriver - no hunting for the right size!) The two main sections are joined at the middle with a hook design and then a locking mechanism. The seat frame just "drops" into flywheel section and you lock it down. No tools needed for this. Easy to take the two pieces apart for vertical storage. As someone who has put together a lot of IKEA and Sauder furniture, I was astounded at how easy this was. Brilliantly designed. Even the batteries were installed in the console. The only thing I needed was to set the date and time.
USAGE: So 10 minutes after opening the box, I'm ready to row. I have had some experience with rowing machines in gyms in the past, so I'm familiar with the stroke and form. I take my first few strokes. The machine is set on middle level as default. My first thought is, "this is too easy. I'm not going to get a workout from this." I keep going and after two minutes, I can feel my heart start to pump and I'm getting a little winded. Kept going at a slow pace for 10 minutes. THIS IS A MIRACLE. I found a machine that is comfortable and gets my heart going and is not hurting my knees. One of the muscle groups this works is the quads, so I'm hoping that will strengthen my knees over time (hoping to delay surgery for as long as possible). I'm slowly working myself up - started at 10 minutes for a few days, then 15, now I'm up to 30, and feel absolutely wonderful. One side effect is that I'm a lot more flexible than I was. A low impact rowing for 5 minutes is a great way for stretching out the major muscles. I would sometimes wake up hunched over with back pain from so much sedentary work. Just five minutes on the machine warms up my muscles and straightens me up until I have time for a full workout. I'm grateful that I found this machine. Will update my progress in a few weeks - hopefully a few pounds lighter and fitter.
For those thinking that this machine is too expensive, please, please reconsider cheap machines. You get what you pay for. I saw a "deal of the day" for a cheap rowing machine this morning and started to kick myself for not waiting - "I could have saved hundreds of dollars." Then I read the reviews. Junk, garbage. Fell apart right away. I would have bought a $300 machine and then come back to this one in the end. It's true that you usually get what you pay for. I've purchased cheap machines for my mother, and they usually arrive damaged because the manufacturers cut corners on the packing. Not the case here. I'm looking forward to a long, fruitful relationship with this machine. Cheers!
Settling on the Concept 2 Model D was easy. I was tempted by the luxurious looking wooden water rowers (smaller footprint, easier storage, more home friendly appearance). But, the gym has the Concept 2, and my experience has been that the air blowing from the fan chamber keeps you cool while working out. Rowing in dead air did not seem attractive.
Another factor is that we were familiar with the quality of this machine. It will outlast us.
This machine rides like a Cadillac. We live in an apartment, as I mentioned, and my Mom's first question was, "won't the neighbor's hear it?" Answer: no. This machine does not rumble. It is smooth and quiet. The fan is the only source of noise. The seat glides in near silence and the chain-pully thing is also nearly silent. There is no noise transmitting into the floor.
I can also watch TV at just over normal volume and hear everything.
Having this machine in the house is great. A 15 minute workout in the morning takes 15 minutes and 30 seconds. There is no packing a gym bag, no back and forth to the gym, no OMG moment when you realize you forgot your shower shoes. Just hop on, row and relax, then proceed with your normal routine at home.
Did I mention this machine is smooth?
We have no regrets with this choice.
Seriously, get a rower.
I looked at many brands and was put off by the negative reviews that inevitably found a glaring deal-breaker in every rower I examined. But time and again, one rower came up as recommended—and with no deal-breaking issues: Concept 2 Model D.
Upon receiving the unit (which was shipped in perfect shape and in just two days from Amazon), my son and I had it moved downstairs, out of the box, set up, and operating in just 15 minutes. Outstanding design. Simply one of the easiest to assemble pieces of exercise equipment I have ever used.
What immediately strikes you about the Concept 2 Model D is how well-made it looks and feels. Every piece of this device is best in class. Other rowers just don't compare. The Concept 2 Model D is a Tesla among Yugos when it comes to air-resistance rowers. Everything from the manuals to the box it came in screams quality. You are getting your money's worth, and that feels good in this day and age.
+ Cardiovascular and whole-body workout.
+ Assembly is a breeze, and tools for assembly are included.
+ Excellent design, both in setup and use.
+ Sturdy. Can handle up to 500 pounds when other rowers max out at 250 or 300.

+ Smooth rowing action, with durable chain-driven mechanism.

+ Secure footrests.
+ USB flash drive access for storing workouts.
+ Heart-rate monitor (not included) connects wirelessly.
+ Effortlessly moved, light weight and with wheeled front end.
+ Includes a two-year warranty and 30-day money back guarantee.
+ Worth the money, and you'll feel you got what you wanted, no disappointments.
* Display is a little 1990s in look, feel, and operation, but that's being picky.
- Seat may not be comfortable for some people—the main reason for a star loss.
Ah, the seat. For me, it's the Achilles heel of the unit. I hate the seat. For whatever reason, it irritates my tailbone despite having a cut-out section to account for this. My wife and son also use the rower and have no complaints about the seat or anything else about the rower. But perhaps the seat just is not the best for someone who is 6' 4" tall and 240 pounds. In truth, I don't have much of a keister for a man my size, so it's not like I'm overflowing the seat, which is generously sized. I'm unclear why this is a problem. So, while everything else about the unit is superb, I find the seat very uncomfortable. YMMV.
I understand gel seat covers for Concept 2 Model D rower exist, and I am considering buying one. If not for this issue, I'd have nothing bad to say about the Concept 2 Model. So, perhaps not a deal-breaker, but still a little bit of a disappointment in an otherwise perfect product.
Buy a Concept 2 Model D, and don't waste your money on any other sub-$1,000 rower. The differences are enormous and worth it. The only competition for the Model D is the Model E. The Concept 2 Model E costs $200 more, but it sits much higher (to get on and off easier, especially for those with mobility issues), has a sturdier base, and features double-powder-coated metal surfaces for extra durability. Most people will opt for the Model D, and it's the bestseller.
When you enjoy an exercise machine and it works perfectly, you'll use it more, which is the whole point. With the exception of my feelings about the seat, everything else about the Concept 2 Model D is a joy. Really, just buy it. You'll love the you it helps you create.
