Gifts for Every Athlete on your List

Nov 14, 2019

Whether you (or your loved ones) are new to working out or are seasoned competitive athletes, Concept2 has gift ideas that work well for both your fitness and your wallet.

1. For the home gym

Row, ski and ride yourself to fitness with our Model D RowErg ($900), SkiErg ($950 with optional Floor Stand) and BikeErg ($990). Our family of ergs reliably measure your work, and used together they provide complementary workouts for full-body fitness. Each erg includes the PM5 Performance Monitor to help monitor your progress. Join us for the annual Holiday Challenge to help earn money for charities!

2. Go techy and connect to apps and shows

Find the right app that motivates you, whether you want to follow along with a Regatta Fitness trainer or cycle against other athletes on Zwift. Or, binge your favorite shows as you rack up the meters with your favorite streaming services.

3. Some gifts are free

For that extra boost of motivation this holiday season, follow along with the Concept2 Workout Podcast As the Flywheel Spins. Concept2 Trainer Cady Hart-Pettersen will guide you through workouts to help you get the most out of your machine.

Our Concept2 ErgData app is also free and can help you track your workouts easily. Our $5 Smartphone Cradle (compatible with the PM3, PM4 and PM5) is a convenient way to perch your phone while working out to the podcast and keeping your data within reach.

4. Gear for the newbie

Getting started on a new fitness routine can be intimidating, so we provide a few essentials to help you get comfortable. We have a selection of T-shirts ($16.75–$26) and rowing shorts ($29–$53) available. Our rowing shorts are made specifically to give a little padding where you need it. If you’re looking for a little extra comfort, our seat pad ($3.50) is an affordable option.

If your erg is in a prime location in your home, consider a Concept2 floor mat for your RowErg or BikeErg ($55). It's perfectly-sized to fit your machine, and helps protect floor surfaces and eliminate slippage.

5. Train smart(er)

Take your workouts to the next level with heart rate equipment. Choose from compatible heart rate monitors for the PM2 all the way up to the PM5.

The PM5 ($160–$180), our latest Performance Monitor, can be retrofitted to all Concept2 machines. With wireless connectivity and a backlit display, the PM5 makes a great upgrade for athletes on your list looking for all the latest features.

6. Ready all, row! Gifts for on-water athletes

Even though the lakes freeze over here in Vermont, we can’t help dreaming of spring training. Make travel easier with a Scull Case ($120). It protects your equipment and is perfectly sized “wrapping paper” for new sculls! (If you order new sculls, we can even ship them in the case.)

Suit up with confidence for erg tests and seat races with our new JL Racing clothing line including technical gear, such as unisuits and tights. Show your Concept2 pride!

7. Gifts all year long

Are you looking to jump start your routine for the New Year? Invite friends and family to join you for one of our FREE challenges. Kick off 2020 with the January Revolutions Challenge and commit yourself to a year of good health.
