We’ve been following our Vermont local Olympians through their competitions in Sochi. Two athletes are members of the US Cross Country Ski Team, and two are members of the US Biathlon Team. The US biathletes brought a SkiErg along for the last few weeks leading up to Sochi and used it for specific strength workouts. When they got to Sochi, they were pleasantly surprised (as we were!) to find four SkiErgs in the dry-fire room! Continue Reading ›

We thought you would enjoy seeing them—and perhaps this will inspire you to try the Fish Game if you haven’t already. It only takes 4 minutes to play each game, but fair warning: it can be quite addicting! Continue Reading ›
This training advice seems especially pertinent to the holidays, when time is often at a premium. It’s also interesting to note that Larry was ahead of the times in recommending HIIT (high intensity interval training), which has been shown in a number of recent studies to be a very effective training tool.

It was 15 years ago when Martin Stridde first joined Concept2. As the head point person for Concept2’s German team, and head of market development for Europe, India, and Russia, Martin says “I just love the diversity of my job.” And it’s no wonder considering the varied background and interests that Martin has brought with him to the job.
