Ready to Give Indoor Rowing a Try?

Aug 31, 2012

Ahhh, rowing in the Olympics. Ballet on water. Power and grace on display with every stroke. Nothing short of inspiring.

You want some of that?

We’re not all Olympic-level athletes, but all of us can get a piece of that feeling of synchronicity, and that athletic look, regardless of our age or starting fitness level. Continue Reading ›

Two Days and Counting!

Jul 26, 2012

We are just days away from the start of the Olympic rowing heats at Eton-Dorney. Although the race course is 33 miles away from the Olympic Park in London, it hasn’t stopped 25,000 people from buying tickets to watch the action, according to USRowing.org. The grandstands are completely sold out!

Whether you are one of those 25,000 grandstanders, or viewing from the comfort of your home, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the race course. For the first time ever in rowing competition, there will be a camera strung on cables above the course that will follow the boats all the way down, getting super close to the action. There is an interesting article about it on USRowing.org. Continue Reading ›

Next Stop: London

Jun 21, 2012

The final stage of the Samsung World Rowing Cup series played out under sunny skies and high temperatures last weekend in Munich, Germany. Over 700 athletes competed in the last regatta before the Olympic Games in July.  Great Britain finished on top at all three of the World Rowing Cups this summer, making them the overall winner of the series. Germany and New Zealand finished the series in second and third places, respectively. Great Britain finished second to Germany last year, but had won the series for the four previous years. Concept2 was there to support the athletes and coaches with any equipment needs. We take great pride in the service we are able to provide the athletes on this international stage. We’re busy preparing for London and looking forward to the excitement of the Olympics!   For complete results and photos from Munich visit World Rowing. Continue Reading ›

Training around the Bend

Jun 11, 2012

Greetings SkiErg Followers! Coming to you from Bend, Oregon, I am finishing up my first ski training camp for the 2012–2013 season. That’s right, it’s time to start up again! I had a good season this past year, despite chasing snow most of the winter and skiing on man-made snow for the most consecutive days in a row ever. After spring series in Craftsbury, Vermont, Nordic skiers all over the country took most of April to recover and are now back at it. This year there is a World Cup in Canada in December, meaning the US takes more athletes to compete, so everyone is ramping up with quality training. Before Bend, the US team had a testing camp in Park City, Utah, at the new Olympic Training Center, and were put through many different physical challenges. One of their tests was using the SkiErg! It’s good to see it being utilized at the highest level. Continue Reading ›
