    Rowing Machine
    I've been working out (mainly strength training) for years. Cardio has been my shortcoming. Has anyone tried rowing machines as a way of getting some cardio in (I hate cardio)? Any recommendations?

    I have used them at the gym as a warm-up for weight lifting. Its good for the back also.

    Ellipticals offer a great cardio workout, while being very low impact.

    Ellipticals outsell treadmills 2-1, I sell both but only use ellipticals at the gym.

    I do weight training in my basement gym. With cardio being my shortcoming, I'm looking at the Concept2 rowing machine. It seems to be the standard by which all others are judged, at least in the rowing community.
