  • profile pic Good times depend on many factors. Heavyweight guys can achieve some awesome times for sure. With teams like GB having a cut off for HWT at a slowest time of 6.10. Lightweight guys get it a little easier (of which I am one of those, and its not easy!), needing a time of 6.33. Girls HWT your looking at 7.05 and LWT 7.28. If your getting near these times then consider joining your local rowing club, and knock on the door of your international squad to see if they can help! by Janstam on 10/14/2010 4:32:00 PM

  • profile pic A good average time for non-competitors would be around 8 minutes or less.. by DENrowing on 9/16/2010 10:00:00 AM

  • profile pic Well, the World Record for 2000m on the concept rowing machine was set in 2007 by Rob Waddell of New Zealand. He achieved a time of 5 minutes 36.6 seconds which is pretty awesome. by Worthster on 7/1/2010 7:23:00 AM
