Recognizing Millions of Meters

Jul 17, 2020

The Concept2 Million Meter Club was started over 30 years ago. There are thousands of personal stories behind each meter, and we love sharing them.

A Visit with Arshay Cooper: A Most Beautiful Thing

Jul 01, 2020


Arshay Cooper with Concept2 co-founder Dick Dreissigacker, Judy Geer and Josh Carlson.

Arshay Cooper is a rower, author, speaker and activist. His story of rowing with the first African American high school team in America is now available for preorder in hardcover (launches June 30) and is coming soon to movie screens nationwide.

Last November, Concept2 invited Cooper to visit Concept2 and share his story. The visit was long overdue: Josh Carlson, in Concept2 Customer Service, originally connected with Cooper in 2015 when a copy of Cooper’s first book, Suga Water, arrived at Concept2 addressed to him. Carlson had been working with outreach in schools, building programs in physical education classes. He started reading, and couldn’t put the book down. Since Josh first reached out, the relationship between Cooper and Concept2 has developed as one of mutual respect and admiration. We feel fortunate to provide ongoing support for his work. 

Cooper’s movie, A Most Beautiful Thing, opens in select AMC theaters starting July 10. Watch a preview of this inspiring—and beautiful—new film. Continue Reading ›
