A family member just gave me a rowing type machine but i have questions about it. you seat on a seat and hold 2 handles with your feet in stirrups...you slide forward and then "row" back and pull the handles back at the same time...the handles are attached to shocks that cause a little resistance. So is this a rowing machine that is used in so many of the crossfit workouts? also i notice that in the crossfit workouts the rows are listed by meters.....this one has no way of tracking anything....so is 1 complete row a meter???? thanks.

This is probably the best indoor rower on the market today:
It's also the rower used by many crossfiters. It has a built in computer that calculates distances for you (among other things).
Read the site, it's pretty cool.
I already have one on my Christmas list for 2007. (no joke)

The Concept 2 is great. There are older models, but they all look pretty similar.
Once you get used to a Concept 2, you're pretty much ruined on any crappy rower you might see at some commercial gyms.
