Rowing machines (good ones like the one in the link) are the king of exercise equipment.
I've got really strong opinions on exercise equipment.
I still use my dad's iron barbells from the 1930s, calisthenics, walk, run a little, ski and bike. Something like lightning near by is all that stops me.
My exercise equipment is good for all seasons and conditions - especially bikes that still work well for the 6th decade of life.
I recently completed two years of "close the rings" on Apple Watch. There were a few cold and wet days when it was work. It was work when sick etc...
Keep moving everyone!
I have a professional grade stationary bike that I bought to rehab a motorcycle accident and used weekly until I joined a gym. Now I'm using that 4 or 5 times a week and I bought some dumbbells to replace the weight training I was doing at the gym. Not near as good, but much better than nothing.
I, too, enjoy cycling, but at the moment (with weather we're having) it's not practical.
BTW.....have you checked the old weights from the 1930's to be sure they still work properly? Do they have any FDA or FTC certification? You need to be safe......
Try Katie Taylor's routine using no equipment whatsoever..
Last spring through fall I replaced or upgraded some clothing and got fenders for one bike. Whether on foot or bike, that pushing to get outside has been worth it. I'm not a mindfulness, meditation, new age sort but I think the getting out and general activity is really helpful for aging. I urge everyone having some decent modern rain/shell jacket and pants with or without gym or the sort of machinery. The getting out part is really helpful.

Depths of winter I’m on it .
It will brutalize you - if you’re doing it right.
Spinners ? Pay attention :
To the OP : got a treadmill ? Get on it ! Let us know your progress .
I’m gonna go out now in 45° greyness on my bike-bike to freeze my nads-nads off ....
I have been using this rack daily for Pull-ups, dips, pushups, sit-ups, rowing motions, etc. I use an 8’ stepladder next to to get all the incline/declines possible with my feet on various rungs.
I have 10, 15 & 20lb dumbbells for other upper body work. For cardio, I’ve been mountain biking some in the evenings. I hiked Picketpost mountain last Saturday (2000’ climb +\-).
Free weights and and elliptical, plus yard work and walking the dog.
Works up a good thirst, so I, of course, have to quench it with some 12 ounce curls!
Hi all. This is my first post here in years. (I had an issue that forced me to stop playing for a while, so visiting became a little painful). Anyway, I've been able to play again lately and have dramatically improved my health of late. Exercise has been one of the factors, especially hiking.
But yeah. No gym for a while and fewer places to go exercise, so I've been doing what I can at home. I don't have much in the way of equipment other than dumbbells and a stretch band. That helps along with classic-RCAF-inspired exercises. (If you're not familiar, here's a Wikipedia page on it.)
I did spend a good chunk of change on one piece of exercise equipment, though, a mountain bike. And I've been riding again for the first time in decades. If you want to see a photo of it, here's one I took during my first ride.
Just purchased this one recently. The iFit workouts are killer.
