I bought a rowing machine over the summer and it's the best investment I've made in a long time: a full body workout that doesn't stress my joints and has no jarring impact. After using it for a couple of weeks, I was concerned to spot some strange lumps in my arms. Imagine my surprise when they turned out to be baby biceps!!! I only recently figured out the tip someone else provided on this forum about leaning back at the end of the pull. For me it's like doing 600 mini-sit-ups per session.
I found a machine that folds up and rolls completely out of the way when not needed. It's totally worth it to pay extra for one of those models. There are some very uncomfortable ad flimsy (cheap) machines out there so try out before buying.
