A reader asked the other day which rowing machine we have and I apologize for failing to respond in a timely manner. I think about it when I’m not around the computer and then forget to do it when I am near the computer.
We have the Lifespan RW1000 Indoor Rower.
Obviously not me in the picture!
We’ve had ours probably 3 or 4 years and it looks exactly the same as the one in the picture and Vince said he believes the current price is the same he paid for it.
It doesn’t take up a lot of space. It’s very quiet. I’m not sure it makes any noise at all. I think if we have to have some kind of exercise equipment in the house, it’s a pretty good one to have. We’ve been pleased with it, though we haven’t used it nearly as much as we should have. That’s all changed in the last few weeks and into the future I hope.
It’s very, very easy to use and even though I feel like I’m getting a workout, it isn’t terribly hard. I’m up to 23 minutes. My goal is 30 minutes and I’d like to do that twice a day. I’ll probably be doing 30 minutes once a day by the end of this week. The hardest part for me is sitting there doing one thing. I think about clothes in the washer, cooking dinner, getting eggs, watering the plants in the greenhouse, knitting, writing a blog post .. it doesn’t matter if I’m listening to a book or music, it’s just torture to sit there and exercise but if it gets my cholesterol down, it’s worth it.
