Editorial Reviews

As a follow up to the Best Selling Rowing Machine Companion this new edition has two additional workouts. This unique DVD is one of the first "virtual" excersize videos to hit the market. Although it was shot some years ago, the quality of the workouts is solid and there is nothing else like it out there. It lets you "watch while you row" making the time fly by as you drift down the river going under bridges and passing other boats. The workouts include: A warmup of 6 min. A nice steady row of 22 min. An intermediate row of 15 min. And for the die hards, an advanced row of 14 min. All in all you have over an hour of workout footage on this DVD.

I recommend this DVD and will be the first to buy when they update it!

On my "old" Rowing Machine Companion, There is a brief table of contents where you can of course choose which workout your want.

If you don't like the video, then sell it back for other newbe's to get a feel.

I have been using the first edition of the rowing companion DVDs for a couple of years. It has helped me to lose weight and get stronger with more endurance through regular rowing than any other means I have every tried. Everyone need to continally challenge themselves to the best health lifestyle possible for their age. I am 61 years old and my wife a couple years younger. Recently someone entered her in a race in the 40-50 year old category. We both smiled at this person's observations. She uses the first Rowing Companion about four times a week. We both are looking forward to the New Edition of the Rowing Companion which has two rowing workouts that are more challenging than the workouts from the first DVD. Total workout time for this new edition is 1 hour.

I searched and searched for something like this to watch while rowing. Not only does it provide the scenery, it allows one to feel as if they are on-board an actual crew, rowing down the river. Plus, it provides inspiration to keep up and teaches one proper form and technique.

Sure if you actually have a river or lake nearby and a rowing scull and are advanced in sculling and/or rowing, this is probably not for you, but for those in want of water and a scull and learning or wanting scenery and technique, it is perfect.

I just wish the workouts were longer as I row sessions of the minimum of an hour a day.

I recommend this DVD and will be the first to buy when they update it! It has an 'aged' look about it, but it still accomplishes my goal. In fact, it was so much fun that I can't wait to go back in and go through it again today.

There is an Introduction, a 6-minute Warm-Up, a Beginning Row, Intermediate Row, and Advanced Row. It all ends up being about an hour of rowing. The fact that I did that as a brand new rower is amazing. I was enjoying the feel of being out on the water with the other rowers so much that it distracted me as the time went by.

I just got a new Concept2 Indoor Rowing Machine. I've watched the online instructional videos. I have an excellent book on rowing. What I didn't have was the feel of actually being out there on the water.

The technical quality of the DVD is not excellent. The photography itself is excellent, but it has the look of older technology. For some reason the introduction and warmup sections seemed old-fashioned, although perfectly fine instructional value.

At first, the audio was practically nonexistent. I could hear the water, which was very nice. Actually that was a major reason why I wanted an on-the-water DVD to train with. Occasionally I could make out a few words. I'm guessing that the rowers were able to understand more because they knew what to listen for.

After the 3rd time through, I realized I was hearing and understanding the commands. I'm amazed at the difference. The DVD didn't change, of course, but my ability to understand what as going on did, dramatically.

Once I got into the rowing, I didn't mind that the picture wasn't crisp and clear. I could see the view around us. The view of the water was authentic and made me feel as if I were rowing on the water.

This is the most thumbs down review I have ever written and as a result it may not be published. I purchased this when it came out in VHS form and it was terrific. I purchased this when it first hit in DVD Format. And the quality was also terrific. This lastest purchase is, well you insert your own four letter word or words! This DVD looks like it was copied from one of the old DVD's which had been well used. The color is of the count down timer is so blury it is very difficult to read and the TABLE OF CONTENTS HAS BEEN LEFT OUT! In other words you can't pick which row you want, you have to hit the "skip" button on your remote! On my "old" Rowing Machine Companion, There is a brief table of contents where you can of course choose which workout your want. The words "New Edition" really got me in the return this item mood. You can't even called this "restored!" I am truly disappointed. It is obvious that the people behind this release spent all their money on a beautiful cover page and the DVD label. They are outstanding, where my old DVD is "plane Jane" but the content is great!

I purchased this CD for motivation and guidance when using my new rower. Workouts are very short and audio is questionable. Overall, I am glad I purchased this; I get help with form and someone to guide my workout.

If your a regular rower and like to sit on a boat looking at someone's back rowing it is fine.

I was hoping for more of a scenic video of a camera looking over the water on a boat moved by someone rowing. This is not what you get. It's 2014 almost. There should be a better video out there. Even someone attaching a GoPro3 camera to the front of the boat would have been more interesting
