Thanks, dearest. I've already been hunting down the concept 2. They are apparently THE standard for rowing machines. I got a price on a couple and they come with an instructional video. Plus, I can hire a PT to come to my home to get me started.
I won't by a crappy quality machine, nor will I go into it blindly. Thank you so much for your advice! If you have any more suggestions, feel free to throw them my way!!! I like the idea of the rowing machine because of the total body workout and it takes up less space, and is moveable. A huge honkin' treadmill would cramp our style a tad.
