A virtual rowing class can give your training a boost with the camaraderie of rowing along with others, the coordination of music to your strokes, and the encouragement of a trainer. Working out at home on your own RowErg gives you flexibility to schedule in your class, even on the busiest of days.
There are now more ways than ever to join a class through technology. Some classes are offered live, which means many instructors can give you real-time feedback on your technique and progress. Others are pre-recorded and available on demand, giving you more flexibility to join at any time of day (or night!). Continue Reading ›

We love 5k workouts!

As spring comes to the northern hemisphere, indoor exercise loses some of its appeal as we long for more time outdoors. Up here in northern Vermont, we know we still have a couple months before it’s really spring—but we feel the same transition coming. We’ll ski until the snow is gone, but we’ll also start running and riding our bikes on good days—and we’ll jump on the RowErg, SkiErg or BikeErg when the weather is just nasty. What’s the best way to balance indoor and outdoor exercise so that you can take advantage of the weather? Continue Reading ›

Happy Birthday to Don McCluskey, who turns 100 years old on February 17, 2021!
We’re always excited to share the stories of our centenarians who demonstrate that rowing can be a lifelong sport. Don credits his longevity to a diet of red wine, Brussel sprouts and carrots, along with his daily exercise on the Concept2 RowErg. Don lives in an assisted living facility, where he continues to work out daily during COVID-19.
“During the pandemic I’ve been rowing every single day for at least 20-30 minutes, and it’s kept me healthy and sane during the lockdown. It’s one of the best exercises you can do when you’re stuck indoors. I have it set up by a window, and I don’t listen to audio while I’m rowing. It’s such a pleasure to row that I just look out the window and get my best thinking done while rowing on my Concept2.” Continue Reading ›
