This article asks whether a rowing machine is worth trying and/or buying. Yes and maybe. The author points out that this machine is rarely used in the gym (and therefore is always available) and for no good reason. It offers an incredible workout. In the past week we have been in the company of friends who row for exercise, and, yes, they are in amazing shape. Not sure we would buy one; the writer also points out they weigh hundreds of pounds, but why not try a rowing machine this decade? Bonus is you get to sit while exercising.
