One of the nice things about the SkiErg is that you can involve your legs as much or as little as you want.
If you’re looking for a full body workout, be sure to engage your legs. The degree to which you engage them is up to you. Continue Reading ›
Some days you can hop on and every stroke feels great, every push of the legs feels so powerful, and other days you would rather be eating a pizza watching your new favorite show. So what to do?
Through trial and tribulation I’ve found a few methods of pushing through the lack of motivation. These methods don’t apply when you’re trying to PR or hold a specific pace or stroke rate, but they can be helpful tricks for logging more meters. Continue Reading ›
The Million Meter Club began in 1987 to inspire our customers to row more meters, keep track of those meters, and then celebrate the achievement. The goal was simple: reach one million meters on the indoor rower no matter how long it took to get there.

It’s a great option for anyone wanting an aerobic exercise that uses the arms and core and can be done with or without the legs. When the legs are used, it’s a full body exercise. When the legs are not used, it’s a terrific choice for those who may be dealing with a leg injury or other lower body limitation. Continue Reading ›

It’s been terrific to be able to ski so long and so far, for so many days in a row! Continue Reading ›
