Refreshed 9th Aug 2019 (Posted 9th Aug 2019)Available: National

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Slightly annoyed at seeing this advertised for next week at Lidl for £99, after just spending £480 on an ebay Concept2 D PM3, but hopefully my machine will be sturdier.

Still, this looks decent for the money especially if it comes with the three-year warranty.

Air resistance rather than magnetic.

In stores from August 15.

(Please note this machine won't work for weight loss or fitness gains unless you actually use it!)

Double win -can also get half a load of washing on that as well

Comparing this to a Concept 2 is like comparing a Skoda to a Mercedes


So you are saying the concept 2 has poor reliability and will break down more than the Crivit.

Looks good thanks!

I would add 'learn and continually work on correct technique' to your caveat about actually using it - rowing is a great workout but you can do more harm than good if you do it wrong!
Back and Take it.. are 3 words that come to mind!

The Crivit is a really solid bit of kit, not quite iron man quality, but no way the PM3, let alone the PM5 is worth the extra £381, especially for what anyone is going to do with it!

that good then>? tempted but no way can afford those others and i want a good workout, not the lower spec stuff that has barely any resistance etc

There is no doubt this is great for £99. But I'd be happier to pay 5 times the price for a concept 2

Yeah, I probably would too but if you haven't got £500, this is a cracking alternative.
I'd be interested to know the rail length on this, ie the maximum user height. That was my main reason for getting a C2. (6'7)
The computer doesn't even come close to the accuracy of a concept 2, so you can forget about accurate 500m splits and strokes per minute, but physically you get exactly the same workout and it's a very decent bit of kit for the price.
Hot for the last paragraph in the description. I may get one if I find it.
This is just cheap crap. You want anything decent, then you pay more for it. Please save your money

A model D costs around £900 new. The PM is the monitor, so dont know what you are on about. I sure its fine for casual use but if you are serious then the concept is the gold standard and you can easily get spares. I picked up a concept with only 10K for £400 but they generally keep their price and go for a lot more.

You'll do your back in bending down to hang your clothes from this thing, better off with an exercise bike.

C2 craps all over this
rather it had magnetic-resistance training, although this this of year the air-rower resistance generates a nice breeze
i prefer have both!
I'd rather it would have a connected heart rate monitor a simple 5khz to to monitor activities,
better still it have to be Bluetooth just so so I upload my data for later comparison using the plethora of app's.
I'll think I give this a miss.
my 2 cent on it.

still the fold-up feature is good + 3 year warranty is very good!!

If that's your view state it but Mercedes now have a poor track record of reliability.

Seems the Crivit can offer a similar work out to a concept but is poorer on the accuracy/computer if so that would be fine for allot of people.

I've lot 6kg in 5 weeks
I missed the same deal when it was previously posted on here in March so I'm tempted now. I have a Reebok exercise bike and cross trainer that I use 4 or 5 times a week and this low impact, high calorie burner, air rowing machine would be a good addition to my home gym and provide some exercise variety for not much money. Not sure I would want to spend hundreds on a rowing machine like the excellent Concept2 Model D unless I knew for sure that it would get used a lot or I was a budding rower.

As an ex rower I am talking from experience. I have tried loads of rowing machines and the Concept 2 is by far the best overall rower imo.
I bought this last year for £200.

Used it once for 2 min.

Okay but many people they just want a work out and rowing is only one of a number of workouts they will perform. If rowing is your sport then I wouldn't expect someone to be interested in this deal.

I’m only being honest in saying with regards to sports equipment ‘you get what you pay for’. Don’t expect too much from a £100 rower that’s all.

And you were an ex-cyclist, you wouldn't go to Halfords for your bike either.
And ex-footballers would say that Sondico footballs were rubbish too.

But for the majority of overweight Brits who just need to add an hour or two of exercise to their life in a bid to extend it, this is absolutely perfect. If you get the bug and enjoy it, then upgrade later.

As an ex-rower, you should be promoting your sport, not driving people away from it?!?
I have a concept2 and use it all the time, there is no comparison. However, for someone looking to get into fitness, start to lose some weight and see if you like indoor rowing this is a superb bargain to dip your foot in the virtual water. Get the rowing technique right, don't worry about times and splits - just get used to using it and if after 6 months you really like it, think about going to a Concept.

Great deal, hot from me.
Sorry for hijacking the thread but has anybody got any view of the bike for sale too?

lidl.co.uk/en/…631
Seems a great deal but I'm wary of the folding mechanism and the middle stand as the weak point. However that stand for a tablet near the top looks inspired. I often do 10km and it gets fricking boring without something to take your mind off it and i made my own tablet stand for my concept 2. I'm tempted to get this but the missus might not be as she thinks i spend too much time in the house anyway

Let’s agree to disagree. Most of the youngsters or middle aged I see on rowing machines have no idea how to even sit on them correctly of which most will end up injuring themselves.
Also why is it all decent gyms in the UK all use Concept for their rowing machines and not Aldi’s £99 special ?
