Every four years, the Olympics bring out wonderful stories of strength, courage, and passion. Concept2 recently met an athlete with a unique path to Olympic rowing. Two years ago, Daniel Marquardt weighed around 300 pounds and realized that he had to do something about it. So he bought a Concept2 Indoor Rower and started training. Once he realized he had potential in the sport, he set his sights on the Olympic Games. He’s currently preparing for the FISA Asian and Oceanic Olympic Qualifying Regatta in the heavyweight single scull (M1x) as a representative for Samoa. Continue Reading ›

Carl, Katie, Christine and Willi Glover
We’re fortunate for cold winters here in Vermont, because thanks to a warm fire, Christine Glover joined us here at Concept2 a decade ago. “My husband bought the newspaper because we needed it to start the fire,” she explains. But before lighting it, “he glanced through the paper and saw the job ad for Concept2. He turned to me and said, ‘you should apply, that’s a great company’. I did, and it’s probably one of the best decisions of my adult life.” Continue Reading ›

SkiErg Skills and Drills: Bracketing Good Technique

Jul 14, 2015

When working on improving your technique, it can be helpful to bracket proper technique by spending a little time doing it “wrong” in certain ways. I use “wrong” loosely, since the SkiErg does allow a lot of room for creativity in the technique and motions used—especially if you are not training for competitive Nordic skiing. However, proper technique will generally offer the greatest efficiency and power. Continue Reading ›
