I was introduced to the sport by a patient who came to my office significantly lighter and firmer than when I had last seem him; he attributed his transformation to joining the ARC. I met him at the river the following weekend and have been hooked ever since. Today most of my rowing is on the erg, spurred on by the C2 website and my hopes of turning back the clock. Read More ›

I've been rowing since 2002, when I bought my Model C machine to use at home. For me it's a great exercise. I row first thing in the morning, four days a week, as much as possible. I have participated in a couple of the Concept2 activities, like the Christmas challenge last year, or the Tour of Lake Champlain in 2006. I really enjoy rowing, so those activities are an added bonus rather than a needed incentive. I hope I can keep rowing indefinitely. Read More ›

My husband and I are retired and live in the middle of the Adirondacks in northern NY. The cold, snowy winters here sometimes make it difficult to get outside and get much exercise so in Oct 2005 we got our rower. We have both really enjoyed it and have found it to be such a good form of exercise. I find being a member of the Ducks in a Row, along with all the C2 challenges, are great motivators to keep me rowing. Read More ›

Even though I have come to the sport late, I intend to row for many years to come and I suspect rowing will give me those years. Read More ›
