I am really interested in getting a rowing machine to help me lose weight and tone up. I've never actually used one, but I think I would like it. I have been watching YouTube videos to learn the right technique so I don't hurt my back, etc.

Does anyone have experience with a rowing machine? I have called around to the stores in my area that sell them, but there is only one store that actually has one in stock and set up that I could try before I buy.

Anyway, I'd really like to try it, but I'm interested to know what anyone with experience using one thinks of them.

I've never used one myself but I think I would like to add that to our exercise equipment one day. I think you could get a good workout with it. I just don't know enough about them.

I used one at a gym a few times, but I don't remember much about it...it was about 15 years ago. I think I liked it, though!

I've used one at the gym as well. It really didn't make much of an impression on me tbh.

I think if I were to buy another big piece of equipment, a rowing machine would be it. I have used them before, but not in a long time.

I've never used one, so can't help you much.
