Steph just proved my point: "I would have to stagger away because my back would be aching like crazy and I couldn't go anymore."

Thanks Steph! Sorry you experienced that problem, but I blame it on the instructors at your gym. I doubt they would know how to properly row anyway, but they should at least watch you and make sure you're not using your back during the drive. It's EXTREMELY hazardous to your back! Everyone who uses them MUST be properly instructed not to drive with their backs! Oy.....

Sorry for ranting. Having gotten it out of my system, Steph, please don't give up on rowing; it's an EXCELLENT exercise and a lot of fun. The problem is getting proper instructions. Do you have a rowing club near you up there? A coach or experienced rower could come out and show you how to use that rowing machine properly, and you'd actually find you enjoy it. It's such a shame, such a waste....
