Buyer Beware

Apr 16, 2018

FRAUD ALERT: rowingmachinesshop.com is listing Concept2 rowing machines for deeply discounted prices. Customers have reported that this site takes payment, but no machines ever ship. It appears to be a scam. As always, if it looks too good to be true—buyer beware!

Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.   —Sophocles

We love hearing from customers: your successes, your struggles, your critiques, your accolades. Whatever it is, we value your dedication to get in touch and keep the dialog flowing. Unfortunately, every so often, we hear from someone who has been scammed by an online site selling—or claiming to sell—authentic Concept2 equipment. That one's a love/hate: we're happy you reached out; we're really not happy about why you needed to. Continue Reading ›

No Time? No Problem. How I Fit Workouts into My Busy Schedule

Mar 21, 2018
There was a time (which now seems like a long, long time ago) when my workout wasn’t a rushed affair squeezed in between meetings, daycare pickup, and folding laundry. Recently, I found myself feeling a tinge of jealousy when I realized my friend who was working out after work had the luxury of a warm up, a long workout, a full cool down, and a long, hot shower in her own bathroom. My workouts these days used to be my warm ups. As a full-time working mother of two young girls, I’ve adopted a new exercise motto: “Something is better than nothing.” Here are a few suggestions on how to sneak in a little rowing, skiing and riding in your life, no matter what demands are placed on your time.

At races throughout the year, Concept2 CTS provides free Regatta Service for competitors’ oars and sculls.

Cheering on Local Vermont Olympians

Feb 15, 2018
Vermont tends to produce more than its share of Winter Olympians (in fact, the highest number per capita in the United States!) thanks to its snowy climate and plentiful winter sport opportunities. This year is no exception. Here at Concept2, we’re especially excited for six young women who have trained at the nearby Craftsbury Outdoor Center, as part of the Craftsbury Green Racing Project. Four of them—Susan Dunklee, Ida Sargent, Emily Dreissigacker and Kaitlynn Miller—grew up in our neighborhood, skiing and running together often on our local trails. All six know the SkiErg well, and most have also done some rowing as good cross-training for skiing. Three are on the US Cross Country Ski Team and three are on the US Biathlon Team. Here’s a quick intro to “our” local Olympians. Continue Reading ›

Via @bobbymaximus Just watched @eddiehallwsm pull a World Record 100m SkiErg. Did it in 13.2. Actually saw a 1:01/500m speed on the screen. His previous best was 13.7 but with some tips from Bobby Maximus he absolutely destroyed that. All hail the “King Of The SkiErg” and the World’s Strongest Man. #concept2
