After I graduated from college, I found myself not having an athletic outlet so I took up running. I bought my Concept2 Indoor Rower about 20 years ago as an alternative to running. I moved north and needed it even more in the winter months. A few years ago, a rowing club was started in my community. Having experience on the Concept2 was a huge bonus to starting with the club. Now rowing is my first choice for a workout. The rowing club is also a great team experience again.
