Rowing machine would probably be great, but I hate exercise machines.

Skip, burpees, chin/pull ups, pushups, free weights, squats, climbing, pull ups under a table, unders and overs.

You hardly have to spend a cent if you're serious, although I'll be another 15 bux out of pocket tonight learning gymnastics.

Most home gym equipment ends up not being used.
If you can, try a group session at a gym. I have just started going to one run by an exercise physiologist - program change every 5 weeks and no more than 10 in a class.
But most regular gyms have classes catering for all ages.
If you are going to buy a rower, concept 2 is the go. 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off over 5 minutes is what I am doing in my program for a warm up atm.

If your going to buy a concept 2 you are nearly better off buying new. They hold their value ridiculously well. They have a deal too where you basically rent it for a few months then if you keep it the rent comes off the purchase.

When i sold mine (mainly due to lack of space) on ebay i had people messaging me flat out trying to buy it.

I ended up selling it for only a few hundred less than what i paid.

Why wouldn't second hand be better ? Payed $900 for a near new one with 40 km on it . Costs 1450 new . If I decided to sell I will ask for what I payed for it .

They are much nicer to use than the crappy YORK rs10 hydraulic thing I have but $30 it works fine.

oldschool - if you do decide to get a rower - get a Concept2. They just feel better, last longer and are THE standard. Also, it will last you a lifetime. It's an exercise you can always do. Once you get over the first lot of blisters - you'll be right.

Google the Concept 2 1km row test, it's a good measure of fitness.
I prefer the term "The 1km row and puke" 3-4mins of punishment till you spew, guess it's the down side to being competitive.
