I was a rower for a year, and therefore the rowing machine is the bane of my existence! After a year of rowing my coach said I was too small and made me a coxswain (the person who sits and yells). Anyway, I can't look at a rowing machine without flashbacks to "erg tests" - basically going as fast as you can for a set distance/time.

I love the rowing machine - no matter how crowed the gym is the rower is always open.

Haha, I used to use the rowing machine at the ghetto gym at my dorm when all the other cardio machines were being used. I never thought it was as "good" as the other machines, but it really does give you a good workout.

thanks for the tip! i only recently added the rowing machine to my cardio routine and it's not nearly as intimidating as it might look. it's a great way to focus on my upper body while doing some cardio.

This is great! I've been looking at the rowing machine to mix up my cardio, plus I really need to work on some upper body strength, but was always too intimidated.
